"I can't say enough. Francesca's energy is so calm and the kids were completely themselves. She was able to capture our real life and I treasure every photo. She came prepared with an idea of what she wanted to capture but also kept herself open to the moment. The session was only 2 hours but the photos feel like she must have been living with us for weeks!!! I cannot recommend her enough. This is the most important thing I've done to help our family heal from the rough start to bringing our last baby into the world. All I see is pure joy." - Gina J.

"Francesca's photos captured our little dude exactly how he is. I have experienced and loved some gorgeous photos of our family but none seemed to catch our true essence the way she did. Cherry on top? Her editing is stellar. Thank you Francesca! (I am now addicted!)" - Lucia B.

"Amazing!! Francesca is an incredible photographer whose pictures beautifully and artistically capture the little moments of our everyday lives. She was so much fun to work with, and my kids had a blast. They didn't even notice they were being photographed because of all the fun we were having. Francesca's pictures are truly a work of art!" - Brigit C.

"I had an outdoor family documentary session in the fall at Martin Viette Garden Center on Northern Blvd in East Norwich, NY. It was amazing! Francesca is an incredibly talented photographer. The way she captures moments is unbelievable. Her beautiful photos truly evoke emotion in the viewer. I am so incredibly happy with the memories captured of our day and look forward to my next session with Francesca. In addition to her pure talent, she is professional, helpful, and incredibly comfortable to be around. I have referred many friends to her and anyone who has viewed my album is absolutely impressed. I often feel stressed by trying to get pics of my family and enjoy the moment. By hiring Francesca, I truly enjoyed a family day. She captured a real day in the life of our family, and she assembled a beautiful high quality keepsake of the day." - Dawn D.

"Francesca is so calm, cool, and relaxed all the time that you can't help but feel the same when you are around her which makes for some wonderful shots. We chatted comfortably while she did her work and, when she was done, I felt as though I just had a nice visit with a friend. All you have to do is relax, and she will capture the magic." - Carissa L.

"Francesca came to our home in Bloomfield, NJ last fall to shoot a Story In Motion session for our family. I cherish the video and the photos so much because it took what seemed like a normal Sunday morning and transformed it into such a special time capsule. It's so much fun to show the video to my 3-year old daughter and hear her comment about the day, what she remembers, what we did, etc. And for me to hear what her voice sounded like at that very moment, and see how expressive she was back then. The video is priceless to me. And it was EASY. Best of all worlds." - Erika S.

"Francesca is an amazing photographer and and awesome person. She is so good at putting everyone at ease and getting spectacular shots. We've never done a photo shoot before and are so excited that she was the one to do it. We love our photos! Francesca was able to capture some amazing moments. She's the best!! Thank you SO SO much!!!" - Andrea S.
