We had two dogs who were brother and sister, Laker and Angel. Angel got very sick and we wanted to have some good photos with her. Before the session I was worried Judi wouldn’t be able to get Angel to engage since she was so sick, I also worried that the dogs wouldn’t cooperate outside with people, dogs and other distractions. But the session went very well. Judi was extremely patient and flexible with the dogs and worked with good humor. She was great in engaging the dogs so they would have good expressions when the photos were taken, and suggesting a break when the dogs became disinterested. Judi got some wonderful pictures of them showing off their personalities as well as capturing Marc’s and my love for them.
We are very grateful Judi arranged her schedule to make the photo shoot happen before Angel was too sick to participate. The photos rotate on both of our computers and cell phones and are framed around the house.
Judi has taken our family Christmas photos for several years, always at a reasonable price. We always select one for our Christmas cards. Our family and friends frequently comment on how the photo captures our personalities and those of our dogs.
What I like best about working with Judi is she comes prepared, talks to me beforehand about the type of poses I am interested in, and figures out how to make them happen. By doing that we have a good variety to choose from. She also pays attention to potential locations, thereby being prepared with suggestions for where to take the outdoor photos.
I would highly recommend using Judi’s services, especially families with babies and fur babies who want something more than stock poses. Judi uses creativity but within the framework of providing the pictures we envision for our family.
Judi is very easy to work with and willing to adapt to her clients’ whims. She comes from the point of view that her job is to produce the best photos that will make the client happy and does whatever it takes to make that happen!
