I wanted to have a last minute father's day present for my husband, who is currently living far from us; the idea was to have a portrait of our son (and dog if possible!) so he could have it while we are afar. Beth was gracious in finding time for the session on the same day that we first communicated, and did a fantastic job. All the photographs are amazing. She insisted I stepped in for some of them, which I did halfheartedly, and I am grateful that she did. Despite not having prepared myself for the session (I was not expecting to be in any of the pictures), Beth managed to make me look really good (something I have almost never said about photographs where I appear). She also was able to work a small miracle, and our dog stayed still for the whole session where it was to appear. Most importantly, Beth was able to capture many different aspects of my son's personality: his fun, his love, his sense of adventure, and even his sadness at being away from his father. The multiple shots of both of us together (and those with our dog) are going to be a forever gift to us, and a memory of our relationship as we are experiencing it right now. There is so much life and meaning to all of the photographs.
I am happy to say the father's day gift was an absolute success. I am very grateful to Beth for making it possible!
