I LOVE my maternity shoot with Hyuna! We were looking for something different(more like a magazine look)for our maternity shoot and she was a fantastic choice! Hyuna and her team find a beautiful way to capture images of camera shy husband and made it easy and fun! She was so professional and very responsive to every questions. We also had our frenchie in our maternity shoot and they were very pet friendly. We love the photos and got lots of compliments from our friends and families! We loved her work so much that we are doing our daughter’s first birthday photo shoot with her again in December. We highrly recommend Hyuna and her team!
