"Our 1st session with Richard was wonderful. We got some really amazing Christmas photos of our new family to use for Christmas cards and keep as memories for a lifetime. It was hard to pick our favorite! We booked last minute so I was so thankful he could fit us in. One of the best things about booking with Richard is how personable him and his wife are! We will definitely book again.

edit: I almost forgot to mention how FAST he gets the photos back to you! Impressive."
