"We had a great experience doing our newborn photoshoot at the studio. Emily was amazing with our baby and she was so patient even though he was fussy. From booking our shoot to getting the photos, everyone at studio was super responsive and easy to work with. Thank you for making it stress-free for this tired mama! I would definitely go back."
