  1. Love your pictures! I am looking to purchase a baby & belly package for a “fathers day gift” to my husband. I only have 7 weeks left if you think you can work in this time frame I would like to purchase a package. This would be in your studio. My second question is do your collections include the sitting fee? Thanks!

  2. Hi there!
    I’m a photographer from South Africa. I studied at the Washington School of Photography in DC. I’m living in Bloemfontein, South Africa at the moment where I also have my studio. I would just like to complement you on your work. I like how you consentrate on detail as well!
    Have a great day!
