We had Abby take our family pictures and from the minute that she walked through the door she became one of the family. She was comfortable around all three of the family dogs and even though we had a large group, she was able to take beautiful pictures. When my niece started to get cranky, Abby was able to get her smile and took several very beautiful photos. Her follow up was great and we had our pictures before we knew it, edited beautifully.
Response from GM Photography:
Thank you so much for the kind words and the opportunity to capture your family's photos! It was truly my pleasure!

What to Expect
Unlike photographers who limit you a certain number of retouched images or who charge extra for more than a certain number, we provide "unlimited retouched images" meaning if its a good shot...we retouch it and you get it. That means a standard 1 hour shoot yields up to 80 images for you to choose from. It is my personal belief that what I may not consider a great photo, you might treasure.
Sessions that are under 3 hours will receive their images within 1 week of the date of the shoot, jobs over 3 hours will receive them within 2 weeks maximum, this includes weddings. With us, you will never have to wait a month or more for your photos!
I have a very laid back approach to photography and want my clients to be comfortable and enjoying themselves. My job is to provide you with memories, I want you to look at your images from our shoot for years to come and smile every time you see them.
I am trained as a Documentary Photographer with a Bachelors Degree from Columbia College Chicago.
When I was 18 I began shooting weddings, portraiture and more. My love for photography has driven me to push myself to excel in all aspects of my work. My work has been internationally published, run by CNN and Fox News and won numerous awards. I have published books as well as magazines in the 20 years that I have owned my business.
Recently rebranded, I now strive to bring top quality photography to people for a fraction of the cost of other photographers with my training.
