    Very pleasant and helpful photographer.
    Linda contacted me immediately. We had a phone conversation about the pictures, where they would be taken and when. She was very helpful and the pictures will be taken very soon.

    Due to family availability we have not had our picture date. Linda has been great about Schedule changes and keeping in touch with us. We are finally scheduled for 7:17 and expect our experience will be great. Follow up will be posted. Thank you

    We couldn't be more pleased with our photos. Linda is an excellent photographer and spent time with us making sure that my sons senior pictures were ones that our entire family will cherish for years to come. She went above and beyond our expectations and we will recommend her highly to anyone looking to have beautiful pictures. She met with us when it was convenient for us and had them ready quickly! I couldn't have asked for anything more then what she did, she was excellent! We recommend her for anyone planning a special occasion or for any portraits they are having done! Thank you

    Loved that she was able to come to our office to take our team pictures. It saved us a lot of time! Her prices were very reasonable and we all loved the photos that she took. We were able to look at the photos while she was on site and she took pictures until we got the best shots. Would highly recommend Linda!

    Linda was the photographer for the 4-H Small and Large Animal Committee in Ogemaw County. Her responsibility was to attend the Ogemaw County fair and take photos of the market class youth with their animals after each species show and also attend the Livestock Auction and photograph the Grand and Reserve in each species with their buyer. Linda printed these photos with youth's name, fair name and year, 4-H emblem, and placed in matte frames. They were presented at the Buyers Appreciation Dinner to the businesses/individuals that purchased the livestock. Linda did a great job seeing as this is the first time for her working with youth and their livestock. She was very professional and stayed calm even when the livestock weren't very cooperative. She has a lot of great ideas for next year and we plan to welcome her back.

    Linda was nice and sweet to drive to Gladwin. It was 90 degrees out and we had lots of places to go. She and her daughter were wonderful on helping us with different places and angles to shoot. It was probably a three hour session that seemed to last forever in the hot sun. The only thing that my daughter and i see that would make things better is touch ups in the proofs because there were bug bites on her arms and her teeth are not too white. Other than that I loved all the work Linda has done and I recommend her to anyone.

    Usually a proof isn't edited to perfection. When you order your prints, those imperfections will be taken care of and your images will have all the editing done to them.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
After your initial session, I will contact you to view a slideshow of your images (usually about a week after your session). You can choose to purchase prints at that time or purchase a proofbook and make a later ordering appointment. Prints come back usually within 4 weeks.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am constantly continuing my education daily, by reading books on the subject and taking courses.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I don't require package purchases. I do have a few packages that can be purchased that will save you some money, if you are buying a large amount, but mostly I sell ala carte, so you can get what you need and not feel like you are getting more than you need. You can buy as much or as little product as you prefer or your budget will allow.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My 15 year old daughter in 9th grade. I bought a digital camera which included slave flashes on Ebay, and started taking pictures of my beautiful daughter, and with her being my representative, I had many High School Seniors to photograph.
What types of customers have you worked with?
High School Senior Portraits, Families, Weddings, Anniversaries, Business Headshots, Passport Photos.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have done editing for kids who have facial deformities, or missing teeth and they and their parents were so happy with the results.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find out what to wear, and how much time will be spent taking the photos. Is the final product edited and does it have a protective spray finish?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I work hard to be dependable and reliable and honest. If I make a mistake, I will admit it and try to make it right.
