    Lucy did a mini session for my family and it was such a great experience. We met her at the Arboretum in Dallas and she did a great job with my daughters and grandsons (and neither of my grandsons wanted pictures taken and yet she worked so well with them and captured some great moments!) Not only was the session a great experience, but how quick she got the pictures to us was pretty amazing. I have had photographers in the past take weeks and even up to a month to get pictures back to me so getting pictures in less than 24 hours was a complete surprise. We are definitely using her for our next photo sessions!
