penny villegas - Take an artist and add beautiful content and what do you get? Something beautiful.
Amanda, your work is creative and it has character. In some of the photos we see the classic sweet new baby and in others, the face of the old man he will become. Equally revealing were the family shots–especially the one of Evan looking into the future, like, what’s going on here? A new world’s coming….
You have added, Amanda, a new dimension to baby pictures, and I’m glad we were ones to be part of that. You did have beautiful faces to start with….

BTW, I’m the GramGram.

Meet Hazel

Less than a week out of the hospital and I’ve jumped right back to photograph a second newborn in less than a week. I admit I have a heaping pile of things to do, but between photography being a true passion and creative outlet for me and now knowing I must continue to build this […]

Minnie – What beautiful photos of an Angelic baby! - Hazel is the most beutiful, angelic and precious Baby I have seen as a newborn. I am amazed how alert, content, wide eye and happy she is. Hazel’s expressions and beauty appear to say “Look Mom & Dad..I’m so happy to be here…love you both very much.” Cate and Craig you have been blessed with God’s precious gift to love care and cherish her for a lifetime. She’ll filled your home with smiles, joy and happiness in the days and years to come. Thank you for sharing Hazel your beautiful baby with me. Congratulations and God’s Blessings to you always. I love you all very much.
