Patricia took our very first professionally-done family portraits and we couldn't be more delighted and happy with the results. She made us all feel comfortable, which wasn't difficult for her to do. My mom and dad are camera shy, but she captured their laughs, smiles, and loving looks at one another. She was able to calm our nerves and made suggestions throughout the session about how to pose, where to stand, and what to do with awkward hands.  She suggested a beautiful setting that was perfect for our close-knit family.   Patricia truly captured the essence of our family.  She feels like an extension of your family, capturing beautiful images and precious moments. I look forward to working with her again!
