The photos turned out amazing. I just love them!

My dogs Harry and Truman are my babies. Their photos hang on my wall, just like the kids and grandkids, and they make me smile every time I see them.

Trish made being photographed easy. She set up the shots and all I had to do was follow directions. I loved all the different poses. They were varied and each one was special. Her level of creativity never ceases to amaze me. She was so patient, and my dogs responded so well to her. They were happy and knew something special was happening.

Thanks for the wonderful photos of my babies Trish, you are the best!

Having professional photos has made my online business presence more polished and professional.


I don’t necessarily like having my pictures taken, but Trish helped me to feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. I was relaxed and I even had fun. One of my favorite elements of the photoshoot was when Trish suggested we incorporate my cat into some of the photos. Turns out my cat is super photogenic, and I love the photo of the two of us.

Trish is great to work with and takes beautiful photos.

I would recommend Trish to anyone looking for unique quality photos.


Professional headshots are a must for business, creating your own brand, and being known as an expert in your field. Having good photos gives you a professional presence on all your digital/social media platforms and are also a must if you are planning to win any awards. They always ask for a headshot!

Trish is kind easy going and creative. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process. I would recommend her to anyone looking for unique quality photos.

I love having professional photos of my family.

I love having professional photos of my family. We do them every year and I enjoy seeing how our family grows and changes through the years. The photos are a special keepsake for me.

My guys do not like having photos taken, they prefer a quick session. My girls enjoy it and like to spend a little more time. Trish took time with my girls first so they could have some fun with their session. Then had the guys come out for a few quick shots and family portraits. The process was quick and easy.

We really liked our photos. The lighting was nice, and the photos were sharp.

Trish is patient, easy to work with, and is focused on giving you the kinds of photos you want.  She takes time before your session and during your session to make sure she understands your vision.

As the saying goes, "You only have one chance to make a first impression."


As the saying goes, “You only have one chance to make a first impression”. From the lighting to her attention to detail, Trish’s photos have given me the opportunity to make an impactful impression for my business marketing.

I wanted photos that captured my personality in an easy setting, not a stuffy studio with limited backgrounds. I loved the way Trish was able to find the perfect spots around my home to give me what I was looking for – she noticed details I didn’t and paid extra attention to the lighting to make sure my photos turned out amazing.

Trish’s easy-going attitude set the tone for the session. This allowed me to feel comfortable from the start which elevated the end result – and took my photos to the next level.

Trish made getting photos of my pets fun and easy.

My pets are special to me. And they’re super cute! So of course, I wanted some professional photos of them.

What I love most about the photos is that Trish captured their personalities perfectly – which is what makes them so fun to look at and display in my home.

The dogs loved her! You can tell she has a passion and love for animals. She has a talent for making everyone feel at ease and has a way with pets unlike anyone I have met before. She made getting photos of my pets fun and easy.
