Almost 6 years ago you did the photos for my wedding. I was given my photos with all my negatives in a beauitful scrapbook that you made for me. Your photos were so wonderful. I'm so glad that I referred you to do my little brother's wedding. His photos were also above and beyond. Thank you!

AudyCamp said...

You are so great Mechelle! You are so talented, have insight o so may things & always get a laugh out of me. :)

AudyCamp said...

(I'm a follower now ) So I remember the first time I called you up. It was just days before my daughter's first surgery. She was just shy of a year old. I called kinda in a panic asking if by chance you had an opening to get her pictures taken before her eyelid surgery. I didn't know if the surgery would change her appearance and as an afterthought I wanted to quickly get photos taken of her sweet face.
You very sweetly obliged & accommodated us into your schedule. You captured some great moments of her & spence together. Those photos still to this day are some of my very favorites!

AudyCamp said...

Oh & I just linked you on my blog:)

Lela and Mary Lynne said...

Hey you are the best! We am so blessed to know you and your wonderful family!

Jo said...

Jo said...

I always think of you when I look at me and my mom's pictures that you took of us kids before mom lossed too much of her hair. It is a great reminder to me of my mom and sll that she did for me and taught me. You are wonderful.
