Tonya not only took the most amazing newborn photos of my daughter, but she was professional, prompt, responsive, and overall great to work with! Bonus-She has TONS of props! She was super patient, took her time, and made sure my baby was comfortable (heat, positions, etc). We received the photos very quickly! I am looking forward to working with her again soon! Hands down a great photographer!
