Both of my Grandfathers were avid photographers, which resulted in beautiful images being preserved and passed through generations of my family. I absolutely love flipping through family heirloom albums and helping my parents scan such important prints.

 We felt so at ease with you and it felt like we were getting photographed by a friend.

I wanted to let you know that we are so happy with our images. We had so many compliments from family about how easily you were able to photograph them. You made our day so much easier; thank you!
