Not many times in a lifetime do entire families have memories to last forever - and in one afternoon with Holly, this was captured. Professional, yet personal, she quickly became the 23rd member of our crazy family and embraced us all. She has given all of us a gift that we cherish! Love you Holly!!!

I know a lot of people who consider themselves photographers, but in my mind I knew that our photo shoot was extremely important to our family and it needed to be "professionally" done.

With two teenage boys and one in his early 20's, I knew it wasn't going to be easy. Holly was so great with the boys; they were very comfortable with her and we felt that all of their photos brought about their true and natural selves.

The night of our shoot, Holly posted a sneak peek of the photos on her blog. I woke up my husband because I was so excited and extremely happy with the results. The images now adorn the walls of our home as a great reminder of our wonderful family. One of the images will actually be in print as the Author Photo in my son's first book Dear Photograph. Thanks Holly!

Holly is clearly a talented photographer and her portfolio is certainly what got our attention at first. We quickly realized, however, that was just the beginning of her strengths. Holly offers clear communication, exemplary customer service and a willingness to accomodate. During our session, Holly was fun, efficient and patient. Holly was easily able to lead and direct our young boys. The end result was a series of beautiful shots that captured our family's personality and will certainly be treasured for years to come. We highly recommend photos by holly.

Holly gave our family memories. She didn't just take pictures of us, she captured who we are on film. The pictures were fun to take, amazing to look at, and will be cherished for years to come. Holly has a gift; she can see "who" a person is through the lens of her camera and it shows in the amazing final product. We will cherish these pictures for years to come. Thank-you Holly!

It was a pleasure working with Holly for our belly and baby photo sessions. She was very personable and laid back, which made the session quite enjoyable. For our Baby session, we felt totally comfortable handing our newborn over to her and enjoying some relaxation ourselves. Most importantly, though, is that she captured a wonderful event in our lives beautifully through her work. We will cherish the photos for years to come and can't wait to share them with our daughter once she is older. THANKS HOLLY!

Holly did a family shoot for us and everytime I look at our pics, I smile! Despite the cold and a screaming toddler, she took amazing photos, which we will cherish for a lifetime. She is talented, patient and very creative. We will certaintly be hiring her again. She captured our children's personalities in the shots and a moment in time for our family. Love them!

Holly is a fantastic photographer! I was the lucky recipient of a mini photo shoot and I have to admit I was a bit nervous but Holly created an environment that was fun and relaxing AND took the most amazing photographs. Seriously, too good to be true!

  • Melinda & Family

Holly you did an amazing job taking our family photos. They completely captured our family and lifestyle. You were so good with our little one, which made it so easy and comfortable. You are fun, creative, willing to go that extra mile and talented! We look forward to our next photo shoot with you. Thank you again for capturing amazing memories!

Earlier in the year Holly donated a shoot for a fundraiser my work was hosting. I love photography and love exploring other people's talents. I was so excited when I actually won the shoot! I thought it was perfect timing because my husband and I were going to celebrate our first wedding anniversary in a few months. The whole experience was nothing short of incredible, and I was still beaming for hours after we left the shoot. Holly was super nice and full of all sorts of great ideas to make the shoot so memorable. Holly didn't waste any time getting our AMAZING photos onto her site later that night and all I could do was sing her praises to everyone I knew for the next week. She is honestly one the most amazing photographers I've seen and can't wait to work with her again in the future. My husband and I are so in love with our pictures!! Thank you so much Holly for giving us such fabulous memories that we will have forever! xoxo

Holly came and took an "All 4 You" photo session for me as a wonderful surprise for my husband's 35th Birthday. I have to say, I had a BLAST working with Holly and I felt so comfortable (in and out of my clothes!). My husband LOVED the photos and can't wait to see the book when it's done.Thanks again Chicka! I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

Holly has done photos for me many times. Usually the shoot involves my lovely monsters of which there are three. She always seems to capture something very special whether it be a candid smile or even some kissing cousins (That picture still has me in giggles). Holly is pretty much willing to be a speed bump on the road to get the shot she really wants and the quality of her photography shows. Holly's got skills and the personality that makes magic happen.

  • Chris, Jay & Family

We have had Holly take our family photos for the last two years and each time she has done a fabulous job. Her love for photography and her creative abilities definitely shine through her work. We have been more than pleased with our photos each time and always get numerous compliments on them. Thanks Holly for capturing these special moments for our family.

  • Melissa, Terry & Family

Holly took our family photos for us and we were in love with them! She was fun, professional and creative! Our kids even had a great time! She is a fantastic photographer and I highly recommend her!

We asked Holly to take our wedding pictures after we have seen her previous work. She was incredible, fun, professional, and creative and went that extra mile. Aaron and I love each picture. They are beautiful and will always be a memento of our special day. Everyone we have shown has commented on how great they are and what an amazing job she did (even with our rowdy wedding party!). Holly truly captured the incredible happiness of our special day. She created a photo book for us which was more than we ever imagined and picking the images for the book was so difficult because every picture Holly captured was a special moment. So we picked 100 of our favourite pictures!! The thought, creativity and love that was put into each page is forever appreciated.

We want to thank you once again for all you have done. For putting your love and creativity into our special day. It was a wonderful experience and we love our pictures.
