“I was so blessed to have Toni shoot my family upon the arrival of our son, Elijah.  I had never done a newborn shoot with our two older children, so I wasn't sure what to expect.  I also admittedly had a bit of hesitation about how I might feel being photographed at just over a week postpartum.  Toni put all of my concerns at ease from the moment of our first conversation.  She has a warm and gentle demeanor that is instantly soothing (for babies and their camera-shy mamas!).  She answered all of my questions before the shoot and proactively took the time to learn more about us as a family, so she felt like an old friend by the time she arrived at our home.  She has the most kind-hearted presence and my older children loved her immediately.  Toni shot our newborn in a very natural way, focusing on the small details that a mother cherishes: tiny toes, delicate fingers and dainty profile. She also photographed our family photos with little posing, so the final photos seemed more natural and editorial in style.  When my 3-year old son was no longer interested in being photographed, Toni was able to take him into his room and capture some amazing candid photos of him there.  She also caught my 6-year old daughter in her element as well.  When I received the gallery of images, I was blown away.  Every single photo is worthy of printing and framing.  She curated a beautiful collection of photos that truly highlight the joy, tenderness and awe of this unique time in our life.  I think her role as a mother herself gives her a special perspective that brings a softness to her work.  You can feel the love through the lens.  I absolutely loved working with Toni and can't recommend her enough.  It is so apparent that she loves what she does and the result is truly a gift for her clients.  I will treasure these images for a lifetime.  Thank you, Toni!”

"My family has worked with Toni on several occasions and would call on her again if the need arose. Not only is she a talented artist who captures the essence of people through her photography, she is also a kind and unassuming presence during the process, bringing comfort and calm. Even the young adults in my family felt completely at ease during the photo-shoot and wondered how time went by so quickly. She produces amazingly lovely photos, prints, canvases, books and framing. We feel so fortunate to have found Toni as she is truly gifted."

"Toni was an absolute joy to work with!! From sitting down with me to discuss what I had as a vision for my portrait, to location, timing and final product, I could not be more pleased. We had fun shooting the pictures on location as well. Toni has an amazing eye for light and how that translates into the photo, in addition to guiding us with ideas for background and position. The outcome was amazing, and I am so happy with my decision to have Toni as our photographer."

"We hired Toni to photograph our family and 3rd baby. Toni was friendly, warm, calm, good with kids and chaos happening and excellent at her job; beautiful photos. She captured great moments of my family of 5 and beautiful newborn shots too. She had photos turned around to me in two weeks. We are very happy with them and would hire her again!"

"We loved our photo shoot with Toni. She helped us pick the best places in our home, garden and even our barn to capture the spirit of our daughter. The photo book that we compiled out of all the beautiful pictures that she took, was the best father’s day gift ever! 

She is so generous of spirit and heart, it is such a pleasure to work with Toni. We will use her for all our important family occasions. "

"Thank you for capturing our family, Toni! You made the whole process very easy and comfortable and we love the images you provided. We have had lots of compliments on our Christmas card. The shots will be cherished always!"

"Toni took mine and my fiancée's engagement photos, and we couldn't be happier. She made us feel absolutely comfortable during the shoot, and we both enjoyed the whole process. Toni did a fantastic job of directing us. We never felt rushed and always felt that Toni had things under control and knew what she was doing. My fiancée had a couple of poses she wanted specifically, and Toni made sure to work them into the shoot for us. She had our photos ready very quickly, and we were both blown away by how great they turned out. Every photo looks so natural, and really captures our love for each other. I can't recommend Toni enough. She went above and beyond our expectations in every way. Thanks again Toni!!"

"Toni is absolutely amazing! She took our little boy's portraits when he was only two weeks old and the photos could not have turned out better. She has such a calm and sweet demeanor which is especially important around children. She also took some portraits for us when he was about 6 months old and we loved those too. We treasure our portraits and Toni!"
