I cannot put into words how much I love the photos from Brent! He was so great to work with ahead of time, understanding about how hectic life would be when the baby was born and absolutely fantastic with our 3.5yo and newborn.

Our little guy was pretty difficult during his session from not napping and Brent was so patient and made sure to capture all of the shots we wanted.

Brent was awesome with our kids (aged 4 and 2.5) and took plenty of time to go at their pace. He delivered many more pictures than the minimum we were promised and we are so happy with how they all came out!
