“Working with Mac was amazing! As a mother of two I was becoming increasingly frustrated with family portrait options. It was either the traditional “sit and pose” or I could get creative on my own and snap away hoping to land that one special candid shot. It worked occasionally but I was never in the pictures. We had a great time during our photo shoot in the park. Mac’s energy was a perfect match for that of our six and two year old boys. He was constantly moving and giving us positive feedback. We felt a little like models on a fashion shoot and it was fun. The results were flawless, truly beautiful works of art. The only difficult part was deciding which photos to print. Mac’s wife, Jennifer, gave an informative presentation and she was indispensable in choosing the right portraits, size and framing for our home. We ultimately choose five or six different pictures to print and created our dining room focal point with our favorite shot in the framed canvas option. Mac perfectly captured our boys’ personalities. The angle and movement in the shot is truly masterful. We enjoyed every interaction with his attentive staff and warm family. We will definitely work with Mac again.”
