Pat A. says: "Both of our children had their Senior Portraits done at Lower Photography and we were extremely pleased with the results. Both Howard and Bev work hard to make it an enjoyable experience with exactly the kinds of shots you want. Whether formal or informal, indoors or outdoors, our biggest difficulty was narrowing down our choices! They are thoroughly professional and also friendly and easy to work with. We were very happy with the results and will certainly go back to them for future photography needs."
