"I'm a photographer, it means a lot to me."
She has photographed hundreds of families.
But right now her focus is on a set of photos she didn't even take.
"It's fascinating for me to see that family on the roll of film," said Crafton.
A few years ago her husband bought her two cameras online.
When she opened the box she also found two rolls of film - one blank, one showing a family trip.
"As an adult you don't get to do treasure hunts that often so it's really enjoyable to try to figure out the mystery."
As part of her 33rd birthday this year - Crafton wants to perform 33 acts of kindness.
At the top of the list - returning the pictures to the family who took them.
"The kids in the pictures are probably my parent's age," said Crafton. "I would love for them to have them and see their parents in a picture and if it was a vacation they could have that memory of the trip they took as a family."
She recently posted the pictures to work her website - looking for help.
I was contacted by a license plate historian - I didn't even know that was a thing.
Thousands have come to Crafton's page - playing detective.
People have really latched onto it like it's a treasure hunt.
With more than 1,500 visits on just the first day of her post - people she doesn't even know have given Crafton more than 50 clues.
"It has been really helpful other people volunteering their time to help me find these other people."
Crafton admits her curiosity has pushed her search - but for her this is also personal.
A few years ago Crafton lost her own camera on a family trip in Tennessee.
"It guts me that I don't have those pictures still," she said. "Every time I see an image, especially of my family, I remember the smells the sounds...It brings back a small moment that you remember."
Small, but important moments, Crafton would like to return to a family she has never even met.
A house number and license plate are visible in some of the pictures - and Crafton knows one was taken at the New Jersey steel pier.
