Information for you

“"Grace is not only a phenomenal photographer, she is truly an amazing person inside and out! My first session with her, I walked in super nervous about the coming events. By the time that I was walking out of the house, I had my head held high and I had a new feeling running through my body. For the first time in forever, I was in love with MYSELF! I was full of self confidence and I couldn't stop smiling. She is amazing to work with and I will absolutely be scheduling more sessions with her!"”
