We’ve gone through a bunch of local photographers for our family photo shoots, and Desiree was by far the best. Let’s be honest, family photo shoots are stressful with the kids (and husband!) complaining. With four kids of her own Desiree just gets it ... she perfectly put my kids at ease, making them laugh and snapping quickly to capture those precious moments.

Getting family photos done can be so stressful! Desiree made the process sooo smooth and simple for our sessions. We are a family of 6; 4 kiddos. Desiree connected with each child and brought out their best and most natural smiles! Even our wild little 3 year old!  I am so happy with our family portraits.

If you're looking for a photographer, stop now and book Desiree. She was absolutely amazing and our photos turned out phenomenal. I told her I wanted the shoot to look fun and natural and she 100% made that happen. She was fun, easy going and had so many great ideas.
