"I cannot recommend Amanda enough! Everything was smooth and easy from booking the appointment, to reviewing the final pictures. She truly took the time to get the perfect shots our our newbie son, as well as had the patience to get a smile out of our toddler. I will always cherish the timeless moments she has captured."
