Client Love

"She is truly a miracle worker! Her professionalism kept our family moving and focused throughout our 20 minute session. Her maternal qualities shone through as she worked with our kids as if she had known them their whole lives. She couldn’t control the weather but the setting was glorious, even my five year old commented “Mommy those trees look like they are on fire!” As I admire our final photos I still don’t know how she did it or how I will choose! She managed to capture my family being playful and loving as well as posed and smiling. No one would know all that we had against us from looking at our pictures and that is because we had Pamela behind the camera. Throughout the process she was quick to respond to my emails and calls. She was professional and courteous and her confident experience was reassuring. The final product was well worth the investment and we will be looking forward to future family sessions with her."
