"Our family had a fantastic experience with our photo session. Everything from scheduling a date, advice on coordinating clothes, making all ages feel at ease and choosing the final photos was part of the enjoyable process. Our family photos are a beautiful treasure and we highly recommend Susan Ditchfield Photography!
