I am incredibly grateful for the kind reviews from my amazing past clients! It's always so rewarding to hear how I've been able to help families and tell their unique story.
"Chanda photographed all of our newborn babies and captured the most beautiful, natural moments in our wild home. With newborn twins and a 4 year old, our life can seem a little crazy and unsettled. Chanda has an amazing photographers eye and documented the vibe of our family perfectly, lifting up the sweetest moments and truest moments. I'm camera shy and it makes me wish I had her here documenting all of the time! The hardest part for me is picking which photos to print and frame- to many to choose from. THANK YOU, Chanda!"
"Chanda has been photographing our family for over 4 years now. She has an amazing ability to capture the silly spirit of our kiddos. The walls in our house are lined with her photos. My then 3 year old said of one of her pictures, "I wanna be in that picture, I look like I'm having fun!" She recently did a video of our family in our home, and it is truly something I will cherish for a lifetime."
"Chanda has been there for so many of my family’s most important moments, and her photos are some of my most cherished possessions. She is talented, personable, and professional."
"Chanda did our family photos and she was a breeze to work with. She made my oldest son feel incredibly comfortable. All the photos were amazing and were given to us so quickly! Would highly recommend."
"Chanda was our photographer when I needed to have adorable photos taken of my newborn son. She was quick to respond to my request and quick to fit me in to her schedule. She arrived a few minutes early to the appointment, and she got started turning my two week old into a super model -- even when he was being a diva! She helped to calm him down and took cute-as-can-be pictures! As an added bonus, she's super sweet and comfortable to be around...I wouldn't hesitate to work with Chanda again... I just wish my husband would let me take photos of my son on a monthly basis."
"Chanda recently photographed our family, and we were very pleased with her work. The pictures were fun and natural; she was able to capture all the laughter and love and managed to keep my three-year-old son engaged in the process. Highly recommend."
"Chanda is amazing! Her work is absolutely stunning, and her photos of our elopement left me speechless. She was so fun to work with and our kids loved spending time with her. Communicating with Chanda was super easy and she delivered on every request that we had. She went above and beyond to make our special day even more special, and she was fantastic in every way! I can't wait to work with her again!!"
"I LOVE the amazing photographs Chanda took of my family. I was blown away at the great shots. She did a wonderful job capturing our life. She is priced well, and has a good turn around time. Highly recommend her!"
"Our family had a great time with Chanda. The photos were amazing and her turnaround time was more than I could have hoped for."
"Chanda had the hardest ask we could have possibly given her- photograph two kids under the age of 2 and two grandparents over the age of 60. She did it flawlessly. We are unbelievably pleased with the final product and will certainly use her again!"
"Chanda did our maternity, birth, and newborn photos. We are both camera shy and hate having our pictures taken, but it was important to us to document these moments, and Chanda made us so comfortable...The images she captured were absolutely stunning. We aren’t into cheesy posed and over-edited pictures, and Chanda’s work captured our life exactly as it is - messy, but more beautiful than we realized."
"She has also done other photography for us, beyond just our birth: maternity, newborn, and everything since. Even when our son didn't want to participate, she captured our family beautifully. We get so much wonderful feedback whenever we share our photos. I no longer stress about photos, bc I know she'll do an incredible job. And we have thrown her some curve balls. I've cried (really don't love photos + hormones), my son has cried, and the sun has been down right defiant, and every time she goes with the flow and none of that chaos shows... She's truly amazing.
Cannot recommend her enough. To put it bluntly, I've never seen another person's photos and wished I'd used their photographer."
"Chanda captured our two-month-old and new little family so beautifully. She made it feel effortless and natural for us and the photos reflect that. As soon as I opened the final album I said “Worth it!” We will treasure each of these moments she froze forever. Can’t recommend her more."
"Chanda recently filmed a video for our family. I had never given much thought to having a videographer capture a small slice of our lives, but it came out beautifully and is something we’ll cherish for a very long time. Also, our family is over the moon to get a video update of our almost-one-year-old daughter, particularly those who don’t get to see her often. Thank you, Chanda!"
"Wow, I was lucky enough to find Chanda for our newborn photo shoot! She was wonderful! She’s warm, positive, super super patient (we also have a 16 month old) and captured the natural and true essence of our growing family perfectly. She even had a sneak peak of the photos to us in less than 24 hours. She’s a gem!!!"
"We were very fortunate to have Chanda serve as our maternity photographer, doula, and birth photographer. The documentary of our daughter's birth brings me to tears every time I see it. It is something that we will cherish for the rest of our lives and I can't imagine having the same experience without her on my awesome support team (alongside my husband, midwife, and nurses). I had a water birth and although I didn't think I really had it in me to give birth truly naturally; I did and I can't thank Chanda enough for being a key ingredient to what I feel is a beautiful birth story."
"After hours of researching newborn photographers, I stumbled across Chanda's portfolio and was completely blown away! So expectations were high, and Chanda still managed to surprise us in the best way possible :) She gave us a gallery with a massive number of images that so beautifully and creatively capture our personalities and the overall vibe of the newborn stage. Love her patience, lighting expertise, attention to detail, and thoroughness (she made sure to hit every combo of family members, including individual portraits of our three-year-old daughter). Will definitely be hiring her again to document the next chapters in our lives."
"Taking family photos with Chanda was such an enjoyable experience, she was very easy to work with, we had fun, and I love the photos!"
"Chanda did an amazing job capturing a "day in our life." She made us all feel comfortable and worked around our uncooperative toddler. We did our session during COVID and she took the right precautions while in our home. Highly recommend her!"
"She was incredibly flexible and responsive with scheduling and spent time talking with my 9 and 11 year old kids (even telling them a corny joke) to get them to enjoy their time and have more natural smiles. I am absolutely blown away by the beautiful photos Chanda took. We received the link to the gallery just 1 week after our shoot! I am so excited to make holiday cards and gifts from these pictures. I am excited to work with Chanda again!"
"I highly recommend Chanda- she did an absolutely wonderful job with our newborn photos. From the first email I exchanged with her, she was extremely responsive and just absolutely lovely to work with. She answered my questions and sent tip sheets that made getting ready for our newborn shoot a breeze. She arrived on time and instantly made us feel at ease. Even our stranger danger pup loved her from the get go! She scoped out the best areas to take pictures in our house and outside. Chanda really just let us be natural and shot around us. She did provide minimal direction that helped us at times, but it felt natural and not too much for our new parent brains! She sent us our album faster than I expected and I am absolutely in love with our photos. She also sent us way more images than I expected and I am just blown away. She captured such intimate moments and our son's personality perfectly. As a new mom, she made me feel so comfortable. Chanda is wonderful and I highly recommend her."
