National Mall Photographer in Washington DC - DC MD VA
Carol was warm and wonderful to work with. What I love the most is the lengths she went to in order to get a great shot of our family. She has excellent communication and was very flexible with our family. I can’t wait to have these pictures in our home. I know these will be on our walls for many years to come! I highly recommend her for all your photography needs and will definitely contact her again next fall for more family pictures!

I am so happy with how our family pictures turned out. Carol is amazing: she’s creative, patient, fun and very professional. I highly recommend her and will absolutely use her for all my family’s photography needs. She’s worth every bit of the investment and more!!!

This was absolutely the best photographer we’ve ever had and we take a lot of family photos. She is very very professional and was very Patient with my son that was acting up. She even would show us how to stand and what to do and what to move etc. I have not ONE complaint. I highly recommend her. And she’s a military family.
