      Words From Our People

      Our season with Maggie was amazing! She captured our family exactly how we are. No awkward poses, just beautiful real life and she does it so naturally it's as if she was a close friend. She just let us hang out as a family and somehow found the moments to freeze.  Our newborn session was not just about our new baby but about our family that he was now a part of. We cherish our photos and they are absolutely stunning. ~ Stephanie

       

       

        We are over the moon about our family photos! This Is Family's casual and comfortable style lead to beautiful candid photos. They caught heartfelt intimate moments and silly play time. It was more than I imagined. This Is Family also went above and beyond when providing the photos and in its customer service. Reaching out to them for scheduling to payment to obtaining the photos was an easy and pleasant process. I am a busy working mom and making the 'details' easy is really important to me.

        Bottom line--gorgeous photographs that I will treasure forever from really great people. ~ Julia

        Jill did an amazing job creating amazing memories of our birth and first family photos. She was patient, thoughtful, and right there with us, and I can't speak highly enough of the photos we have to help us remember this lovely, but fuzzy in our memories, time of our lives.
