“I just wanted to tell you again how thrilled we are with the mini shoot pictures! I have one set as the lock screen on my phone and every time it pops up, it just brings me such joy to see Hank’s smiling face! So, thank you for continuing to capture beautiful pictures of our family. But in particular, I’m over the top in love with these!”
