"Lisa is a photograpy magician! We had such a bad day leading up to our family pictures but you'd never be able to tell our little 2 yr old terror was wreaking havoc from the gorgeous photos we got back from Lisa (in just days!!). I recommend her to everyone and could not be happier with our experience."

"Lisa has been taking our family photos for years and we love them each and every time. She is incredibly talented and professional. My kids love her and taking photos with her. She captures truly beautiful family moments." 

--Jennifer (Facebook review)

"Lisa is amazing and so talented! She did a photo shoot for me for headshots and lifestyle photos and they turned out gorgeous. It was the first time I had a photo shoot besides wedding photos and she eased all of my fears. She’s fun to work with and pays attention to details. I can’t wait to work with Lisa again!"

Do you have little kids?

This video of me singing silly songs will help you and your little ones get to know me and my photo assistant, George the monkey.
