I chose Photos by Yvonne as my professional Senior photographer because I could see the quality and consistency of work throughout her portfolio. From the composition to lighting and genuinely getting a smile from her subject, the entire process and the end product were top notch. I would chose her for any occasion whether it be weddings, senior photography, headshots, or family portraits.
