A beautiful family, and of course a great collection of photos. I am sure they will be very happy with what you have captured.

Wow – they are a beautiful family! The mom could be a model.

Love the background scenery – perfect – and not too “autumn”.

These photos are excellent. Great work, Dianne. I’m fairly new to photography but I suspect it is your decision to use natural light which makes your photos so pleasing to the eye.

My family – parents, children and grandchildren – recently were phtographed by a professional photographer. This was in Ottawa. I didn’t like the results at all. A flash was employed and it gave all the photos a harsh, high-contrast, almost “crime photographer-like” quality.

These are so much better. Your clients will be pleased with these.

A truly great series of portraits. Excellent usage of the light. I really like the last three.
