Portrait Reviews

Oh my heavens... I CRIED when I saw these pictures. What an amazing talent you have. Oona, you’ve given us something we will treasure for generations to come. I am so grateful for you. I absolutely cannot wait to share these with our family and friends! It’s funny... my husband has not stopped saying, ‘I LOVE these pictures. It was worth every penny and more. I’m so glad we did this!’ Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!! Christina Harris, Federal Way

Oona is simply fantastic! Her work is artistic and very natural. She has a wonderful way of engaging the kids and capturing them so their personalities really shine through the photos. We have had Oona photograph our family several times now and we are always impressed with her work. She provides several hundred images in a variety of color, black and white and sepia, all in hi-res format on disc, which makes her packages very affordable. Trust me, once you work with her you will want to continue having her come back year after year!" Dorothee Graham, Seattle

I totally love the pictures!!! It’s exactly what I was looking for. I cannot believe how many compliments we have received. I wish we had known about you sooner. Not to mention this has now become a very special event and memory for all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! Mahalo nui loa (thank you with love.) Arleen Nakamura, Mililani, Hawaii

WE LOVE THE PHOTOS! They are exactly what we wanted, you captured us perfectly in our own setting! You are an absolute pleasure to work with and a master of your craft!Sarah Daniels

I had never had such a beautiful picture taken of me until I hired Oona. Her photos are beautiful and genuine. They capture a side of people that only their true friends know. The pictures that she takes will be family heirlooms. She has the eye of the artist and I will cherish the pictures that she took of my six-month old daughter for the rest of my life. Christina Sherman, Tacoma

BEAUTIFUL photos Oona, you are amazing..... I've GOT to go to bed but can't stop looking!!!! Shannon Eyford, Tacoma

The pictures are simply luminous! They're so vibrant and full of life! You did such a wonderful job capturing the quirkiness and love in my family -- I feel right at home when I see them :). I hope this will become a regular occurrence :). Thank you so much!Parvoneh Neilsen

Oona is amazing! Not only does she have an amazing eye and get great pictures, she's also a lot of fun during the photo session. She was also able to get wonderful pictures of our wiggly three month old and took great pregnancy pictures for us too. We will definitely use her again and would recommend her to anyone! Nicole Bolan

Oona is amazing! She has such a gentle way with our little ones! We adore her and her photos! Vanessa Suresh

Oona has taken our family photos for 3 years now and she never disappoints. She has a gift for capturing natural moments between us and our only challenge has been that there are always so many great photos, it's hard to choose which ones to print. We would highly recommend Oona! Lisa Goldberg

Oona was wonderful! She quickly put Brent and I at ease and we had a fantastic time! She was also very flexible and willing to go to three different venues with us. Even though we ran a little over our three hour time limit, she was willing to stay with us and make sure we got fantastic pictures. Oona not only came well prepared she also had great ideas for poses. We both love how natural and gorgeous our pictures turned out. A week after our pictures were taken, Brent and I moved across the country and Oona was more than accommodating to help send our pictures wherever we needed them. They even came in a beautiful ribbon-wrapped tin! Alena Foresman

Oona is wonderful! We were very comfortable with her from the first moment, and are very pleased with the beautiful photos she captured of our baby girl. We'll be using her for our daughter's next several photo sessions! Kassandra Raymond

I have been working with Oona since I was pregnant with my first son and from the first time I met her I felt instantly comfortable and relaxed. She never ceases to amaze me with how many pictures and moments she is able to capture of my growing family. There are usually so many great pictures the hardest part is choosing the ones that I want to print. She is a bright light with an amazing eye and it is always an honor to work with her. You don't need to look further for your photographer she is it! Melissa Paz

Oona is an amazing photographer. She really captured the essence of every member of our family. The photos we got from our session were priceless. We were all put at ease by her demeanor. We would recommend her and will definitely use her again! Lisa Loveland

Oona was great! Most importantly everyone in the family felt very comfortable around her and connected with her - which made for great photos of the four of us (five including the dog)! She put together a great package of photos, CDs and a slide show. We appreciate all the work she put into each photograph and we recommend her to everyone we know! We get compliments all the time on our portraits! Jim Graham

We have used Oona many times for family photos, newborn pictures and she photographed my sister's wedding. All experiences were more than incredible. She makes me look like a model every time! Her professionalism, creativity, friendliness and demeanor is more than you could ask for. She will provide you with more beautiful photos than you know what to do with. Thank you Oona for creating amazing memories for my family! We love you!!!! Jonni Prince

Oona, I felt very blessed to have you take pictures of my new baby girl on her first day of life. You really captured her personality and our joy and awe at her arrival. Thank you again for blessing us. May God bless you in return. Jennifer Sherman, Olalla

WOW!!!Thank you SO much for all of your amazing work on the pictures!! They are just so wonderful - we can't get over how many great ones there are to choose from! I can't wait to share them with our family and friends. Deanne Caron, University Place

I wanted to thank you for the pictures you took. Jesse and I loved, loved, loved them. They are so special to us because it captures a lot of Madi’s spark and our happiness and love for her. We were so used to going to the mall studios that having our pictures taken in our natural surroundings was something we enjoyed and look forward to doing with you every year. I’ve recommended you to everyone we know. Chino McLaughlin, Tacoma

Oona, we realized today that we never said thank you for the beautiful pictures!Angie spent almost the entire day (the day you dropped them off) watching the slide show and crying. Your pictures are incredible. Thank you so much again, and we look forward to doing it again with number 2!Chris, Angie, and Dani Langhelm

We just got through looking at all of the photos and they are amazing. Words can't describe how magical they are and how they captured our family. I never have photos of myself, let alone good ones, but you took some absolutely beautiful photos of me and my boys and husband. Thank you so very much. Lori Losee, Puyallup
