Lindi - Amanda -

Thank you so much for these amazing pictures! You came highly recommended to us, and I can definitely see why! I appreciate that you were willing to work around the crazy schedule of a newborn and postpartum medical visits.

As Alexander grows, we will use your talents again to capture more beautiful family moments.

Thank you again!!
