''Iris is amazing!! she knows her stuff when it comes to lighting. 


We used her when we did our fresh 48 pictures in the hospital, and finding the right light in those rooms can be so hard! She was an expert at moving things around to get the best picture. She was also so personal and knew how to work with not only our newborn but our toddler too (which can be so difficult) She even thought about bringing a special picture book for our toddler. It was so sweet! I highly recommend using Iris. She is the best!

Iris was exceptional to work with, she was responsive and informative. I told her what I was looking for and sent her a couple of photos that I liked, and she couldn't have done a better job. She captured my family perfectly in our maternity shoot, aside from having two-2-year olds that were interested in anything other than taking pictures. I highly recommend Iris as she has a keen eye for beautiful moments.

Hiring Iris was 100% the best decision we made for our maternity shoot.


She took her time ensuring that the lighting was great for each area and was specially great keeping our 4-year-old interested in taking pictures so we could get all the shots we wanted. She was super responsive and was able to  get our photos back so quickly! We highly recommend her!

Iris is phenomenal! She took newborn photos for our family and was amazing to work with her.
