    I highly recommend trishography portraits! Iv worked with her quite a bit sense i started modeling 3 years ago. And she as always been so much fun to work with. And the images she gives back are always so beautiful. One thing i really like about her is she will help with posing you to get the best shot. unlike alot of photographers that just snap the shot and dont look at the angles they are getting shes very professional.

      This is really great insight into how she works. Thank you so much for your comment.

    Trish has an eye for positions and expression of emotion that many photographers just don’t have. If you need to take a (potentially) boring photo shoot and turn it into something truly memorable, definitely consider hiring Trish!
