“We loved our photo session with you. The time went by so quickly, and the kids had a great time. And the photos are absolutely adorable. They allow the kids to shine through as their full, sweet, adorable selves. It felt like we were being photographed by a friend who knew and cared for our family, while still feeling absolutely professional.”

“My son had hardly ever looked at the camera for pictures before; I was worried that a family photo shoot would be a huge challenge for everyone to look at the camera and smile at the same time!
Aquilina was amazing! My kids thought her camera was really cool and she took the time to show it to them and how it works. This helped both of them be engaged enough to look straight at the camera every time!”
