    She is the best photographer I have had so far I had many and she knew the particular look I was trying to achieve. Also, she's very reasonable. And by the way, I am very picky about pictures.

    I needed a professional headshot for my LinkedIn profile and Gwen came up in a Thumbtack search. I reached out to her and she immediately contacted me and I was able to schedule an appointment with her within a few days at a great price. Her studio was very impressive and she was delight to work with. I received my proofs the next day and she was extremely responsive when I needed a few background tweaks. I highly recommend Gwen and will refer all of my friends to her!!

    From the initial contact, Gwen was professional, took the time to explain the whole process, and was energetic enough to make me want to choose her. Additionally the website showed great pictures & was easy to navigate. Gwen's studio was beautiful and includes both inside & outside settings which are all on site, which is a huge advantage. She helped with outfit selection to get the colors just right for the best look. She managed to work around our busy schedules, even keeping an eye on the weather for us since we were taking some pictures outside. Gwen took the time doing special edits to make our final pictures look exactly as we wanted them. I'll be using her again for our next photo shoot without hesitation.

    I hate to have my photo taken but, when I needed a new "headshot" for business purposes, I selected Gwen. She quickly put me at ease during the process, was careful with lighting, and suggested several poses and backdrops. Now, having received the photos from her, I find that I like them all! I am now having to select the best one from the several good ones rather than repeating my past experiences of trying to choose the least objectionable photo from the choices. She is very talented both with the technical issues involved in portrait photography and the esthetic concerns. I highly recommend her.

    Gwen took pictures of my girls and they were breaktaking. My girls still (6 months later) talk about how much fun they had and how nice Miss Gwen was to them. Her work is phenomenal! I will use her again and would recommend her to anyone needing photography services.

    My teenage son HATES getting his picture taken, however, graduation time was here and I needed him to do it. Gwen made it fun for him . . . even included his car in some pics! That made his day. The photos were beautiful and so honestly him. I love them, he loves them! I will absolutely use her fro my future photography needs!

    I have used Gwen Morris Studio for multiple photo shoots and have always been blown away with how wonderful the photo session and resulting photographs are. My favorite session was the glamour photo theme birthday party for my daughter's 13th birthday party. The 4 girls were made to feel immediately at ease in front of the camera with the genuine kindness of Gwen. The girls had a blast and I wish I could share those pics on this review. The studio is an old quaint farmhouse complete with a rusty old truck out back which is a great photo prop in of itself. Gwen is the whole package for a photographer: kind, talented, fun, detailed, and a genius behind the lens with lighting etc.

    The location was beautiful. I wanted the fall colors for my twin sons senior photos and Gwen delivered. We were given so many backdrop and pose options. Gwen tried some fun and unique poses for my twins (arm wrestling). To top it off, the quality of the finished product was exactly what I wanted. Gwen being so sweet and fun made the photo shoot perfect.

    I loved the photography in studio session. Gwen was so sweet to my young children and very patient! The pictures turned out incredible and the prints are on the best quality I've ever received.

    We have used the photography services of Gwen Morris on several occasions. My daughter needed a headshot for a pageant and Gwen captured some breathtaking shots of her! In fact, some of the photos Gwen took were awarded at pageants! Gwen was very patient and accommodating for wardrobe and hairstyle changes. We have also used Gwen for some of my daughter's dance photos, Once again, Gwen delivered some fantastic shots! Gwen is imaginative and her lighting and editing skills are superior. Gwen did the photoshoot at her studio and she was there right on time ready for us and the proofs were ready for viewing in a few days! She also gave us some sneak peaks to share with family and friends! I would highly recommend Gwen Morris photography to capture your special moments in a relaxed and fun atmosphere!
