HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I launched @Crys_Kitchen in June 2019, after years of serving up delish dishes to family and friends and asked too many times to count how I made that? The name Crys Kitchen came from a gal pal in a conversation about my popular fried chicken and the rest led you here.

Here’s a great article that explains why in detail READ THIS If you’re serious and ready to pay for a brand audit and/or consultation shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW DID YOU LEARN SOCIAL MEDIA, WEB DEVELOPMENT, PHOTOGRAPHY, ETC?
The Internet – no really, google, youtube, and pinterest have been my main source of all things online business building. Things I stay buried reading and studying are “how to build a WordPress website?”, “how to take food photos”, “how does Facebook/Instagram work”, “how to make a video?” etc. I totally taught myself everything that it takes to run a blog – photography, social media, web development, copywriting, and more.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING?
9 years, this is actually my second blog I’m a full-time hairstylist and owner of Crys Art Beauty Bar, and had a blog that built my salon clientele back in 2011.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
I live in Houston, Texas. I’m a rare and proud native Houstonian
WHO TAKES YOUR PHOTOS?
I do it all. A very large percentage of the content you see is shot by me. I shoot every photo and video that you see on the blog and social media. Any photos or videos of me that are shot by other photographers or bloggers are credited below the photo.
DO YOU CATER OR DO MEAL PLANS?
Yes I sure do, I’m currently waiting for paperwork from the city, but as soon as we can get back to normal post COVID-19 executive orders I will update with all the information.
WHAT DO YOU USE TO SHOOT YOUR INSTAGRAM PHOTOS?
Usually for the ‘gram I use the iPhone 11 mainly becasue it’s hella convenient, but on occasion especially when filming a vidoe, I’ll whip out a Canon Rebel t5, and a SONY camcorder. For edits when using the Canon, if needed, I’ll edit the photos on Adobe Photoshop CC. Be sure to follow me at @Crys_Kitchen if you don’t already!
