I wish I could give infinite stars to Goldie, but 5 will have to suffice. We had my daughter's newborn session with her and I am beyond grateful to her for capturing such beautiful portraits. She made the entire process stress free and went at a comfortable pace for our daughter and family. I love the amount of thought she put into each pose, and the fact that she captured something so timeless. I am so thankful that we went with her for our daughter's newborn photos. I will definitely continue to use her, and I hope that you will too! She's worth it and you won't regret it one bit!
