– Words of Appreciation –

We were taking couple photos and both of us were nervous about it. I am awkward in front of a camera and get very stiff. Hilary was amazing! She made it so much fun and truly captured our personalities along with getting some great shots. Everyone commented how unbelievably happy we looked. Our pictures felt more like you were capturing a memory instead of just capturing a beautiful shot of us.

Hilary is great. I have two little boys and she was so patient and made sure we got all the shots that we wanted. I love the photos that she took of my family. I haven't been happy in the past...I always felt that we looked washed out. Hilary edits beautifully. I would definitely recommend her!!

We had so much fun with our engagement shoot with Hilary! I really wanted snowy photos, and she was willing to venture out into a stormy afternoon with us to make it happen. The photos turned out amazing!!

Hilary was able to accommodate a last minute booking for our family picture. She picked a beautiful mountain setting. She was was able to work well with multiple people and was able to capture some fun candid shots. She is easy to work with and is willing to take as many shots as we wanted. We are very happy with the finished product.

Hilary was amazing! Our little boy was getting sick (unknown to us) the first session we shot and even though he was being grumpy she tried so hard to get him to smile and got some great shots. She even offered to do another mini-session when he was better to get some pictures of him being a happy 2-year-old. She was awesome and I can't wait to work with her in the future.
