“I know I speak for the whole family when I say how much we loved the results of your Saturday session…it is so gratifying to see my lovely three generational family’s faces all together and smiling happily in that beautiful garden. I had to laugh today when Brittany announced at lunch that she wanted to have one of her rooms wallpapered in all the photos!! Now that surely would be a first!! We will take our time talking and thinking and sharing ideas as to what we want and get back to you….but WOW, great job!!!”
