Mailman just came by and they look fantastic!

The book is the perfect heirloom, and the individual prints really pop! Can't wait to get them framed!

Thank you again for making our happy memories tangible in such a timeless fashion.

It was educational for me, about where I am. For some of us, there can be SO much embedded in confronting or giving attention to our image, or in the act of being the subject of a photograph. I am so grateful to you for giving that some attention, and for your care during the session.
