What can I say ? Summer has taken our family photos 3 times at 3 different places. Each time, I always think “no family photos can beat these ones” ..... until the next time she captures us so authentically and so beautifully. She has a real gift. So real that she could honestly make a dumpster fire surrounded by other dumpster fires look magical and timeless. She is also just an awesome person to get to know in life. As far as pricing goes, I believe she charges a fair price that any great and experienced photographer charges, but you will have photos that you will cherish FOREVER. Hire her. I promise.

Summer is wonderful to work with! She was prompt, efficient, communicative and the quality of her work is fantastic! We've been doing annual family photoshoots for over 8 years now and are very discerning about the photographers skills, technique and also the quality of their equipment. Summer checks the boxes on all fronts! She will be our go-to from now on!

We booked family pictures with Summer, and of course our two year old daughter decided not to cooperate. Summer reassured us this was normal and kept us from stressing. We received the pictures from Summer and you would never know our daughter was throwing a fit almost the entire time! The pictures were absolutely gorgeous and amazing. Better than anything I could have hoped for, and she did manage to get a shot of our daughters meltdown that I can show her future husband someday as payback. We were so satisfied we have booked a newborn session for our son who's arriving in September and all of his first year milestone sessions as well. Can't wait to work with Summer again!
