"We had an awesome experience with Brenda. She was so easy to work with and relaxed. The kids enjoyed her too! She captured the best family photo we have ever taken and are so grateful to her for it! She knew when and where to go and the pictures were more beautiful than we ever expected. We also had a great experience picking the photos out at her studio, it was so easy with her selection system. Thank you Brenda!"

"We were very pleased with the senior portraits Brenda took for us. The weather was iffy, but we kept in close contact and pulled it off. We moved from location to location to make sure we captured my ideas, my daughter's ideas and Brenda's ideas. She took so many great photos that were all so unique, we ended up ordering a whole album!"

The Lawson Family | Santa Fe, NM 

 

"Brenda somehow managed to corral two rambunctious boys and an independent toddler in such a way that their personalities came shining through in our portraits. The finished products were not only beautiful but incredibly unique and timeless, and they certainly exceeded our expectations."

Louise Kirsch | Telluride, CO

 

"Working with Brenda was a wonderful experience. I'm used to being the one behind the camera when it comes to taking shots of my son. Although I'm not particularly comfortable in front of the camera, and was not sure how my son would react to sitting in a studio with another person behind the lens, Brenda's sweet demeanor put us completely at ease and had us laughing in no time! The results were amazing and I finally have some wonderful photographic memories of the two of us that I will always treasure. Thank you Brenda!"

"Our family has been coming to Telluride for many years and we own a condo in town. Photographing all six of us in the freezing temperatures was not an easy feat, but Brenda made the experience positive and full of laughter. We were thrilled with our family portrait on Main Street as well as numerous other shots in the snow. A great time with great results! We'll definitely use Brenda again in the future!"

"Although I had made previous visits to Telluride, I left it up to Brenda to choose the location. I did not even see the location until I was walking down the "aisle" and I was completely blown away!! It couldn't have been any better the photos are amazing! Brenda was fabulous!

Sarah and Miguel Chavez | Tularosa, NM

"Brenda was incredible, she was able to capture this beautiful and wonderful moment in our life. I could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding, she truly has a gift. Our pictures turned out amazing and we were not disappointed with a single one. She was able to make things relaxing and fun on what is normally a stressful day. It was truly a pleasure to work with this wonderful lady!"

Stephanie and Scott Phillips | Dallas, TX

"Yesterday I was picking up my wedding portraits at the post office, and forgot my ID. I realized I could prove my identity by showing the Post Master the contents of the box, so we opened the box. Once we opened the box, the tone of the transaction changed to something wonderful. He was thrilled that I shared the photos with him: so thrilled in fact that he asked for the photographer's name so he could hire her on his next visit to Telluride. I, of course, was delighted to share Brenda's information."

"Working with Brenda is a completely creative and comfortable experience. She knows how to put her subjects at ease & encourages their best expressions to be revealed. Brenda & her professional team make sure the process is simple from beginning to end. From the first phone call inquiry to the time on the photoshoot, all of which all leads up to final photo selection and placement in the home. As a photographer myself, Brenda gets my highest marks of approval! My family & I (including my kids & hound dogs) love being photographed by her!
