Words From My Clients

I love hearing from my clients when they see their photographs, and then continuing to hear from them years later when they look back at them. The texts and e-mails and Facebook messages they write mean the world to me! Here are a few of them! Please also visit my Facebook review page for more kind words.

“Looking at these pictures brings me to tears. It was such a special day. What an incredible moment in time for our family. These pictures truly mean the world to me, as do you and your support. My family has been so blessed by you, and it makes me so glad I reached out that very first time for birth photography. I really had no idea the gift we were getting in you when we hired you as a birth photographer. You’re an inspiration – in your art, in the way you parent, in the way you live, in the way you offer you and your authentic self to the world.”

“Ohhhhh Maegan…You are amazing. You have captured the best and most beautiful moments. I just can’t believe I have these beautiful images to take me back to his birth. I can never thank you enough. I am so grateful that you were a part of Carter’s birth and that you captured it so we can always remember it. The only problem with the slideshow was that I could barely see it through all my tears, so I had to watch it a few times. Thank you for being there as my friend, a support person, and as our photographer. Xoxoxoxo, you are incredible, and I love you!

ridgewood nj newborn photographer“Oh my goodness!! We LOVE it! We’ve already watched the slideshow six times. It totally captures him and us, and we get more and more comfortable as the slideshow goes on. I’m so glad we took the pictures in our family room at the end.

We can’t wait to share the video and the pictures with our family and friends. Thank you for all your help. We are so happy with how it turned out.”

“So I keep replaying the slideshow of our mini-session and I can’t help but tear up and smile. I got stuck staring at the picture of the three people on the bench, thinking how happy they all looked and what a beautiful family it was- then it clicked that it was my family. I’m so grateful to know you and honored to be blessed enough to benefit from your gift. Thank you for capturing the moments that help me realize what an awesome life I have.”

I knew my daughter was beautiful but what you captured is amazing!! And, you caught us in our best moments. I don’t feel that pretty… Thanks for showing us our light and our beauty and our happiness!!!! What a gift and a treasure you have given us!!!”

“Wow!!! I can’t stop crying. You are so gifted and absolutely amazing. I feel as though you took the time I thought I wasn’t good enough and made me feel that much stronger. I honestly was not expecting anything. I just liked the experience of having you there. I just feel so lucky you were there as an emotional support and as a visionary. I saw you always smiling and being so supportive. The whole experience was something I could have never scripted nor changed. I feel so empowered and these pictures are a wonderful reminder of what I did. God you are so talented…Having your smile there and just words of encouragement were amazing on their own and now this.”
