What clients are saying…

Having known Pam Long for several years, but never having the chance to work with her made me really excited to have the opportunity to not only work with her, but to document our family’s 40 years in business. Pam was ahh-mazing. She made each one of us feel at ease, and with a four and six year old, it just made this family time much easier. Pam is an incredibly talented photographer, capturing many special moments of all of us. While the photo shoot was a lot of fun, I really was dying to see the pictures. Pam assembled a beautiful slide show for us to enjoy. So much so, I was teary-eyed just seeing the six of us come together. I am looking forward to our photos arriving, and to be working with Pam again, as she documents our 40 year celebration! 

Pam’s customer service is unmatched.  After selecting our photos, she came to our home to help measure space where our family canvas would hang, and when it arrived she hung it for us.  I cannot get over how much Lucas and Landon have  grown and changed in just one year’s time.  What an incredible moment in time Pam has given us.

During our photo shoot for our two little girls, we found Pam to be much more than a photographer.  She was a true artist – able to bring out and forever capture those precious little smiles, silly giggles, and playfulness of childhood.  When we received a card in the mail with pictures of our girls on it a few days later, tears came to our eyes, because they were the most beautiful portraits we had ever seen.  We know that these portraits, of two little sisters, will bring joy to our family’s homes for generations.

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what we’d encounter on our first visit to Pam Long Photography…maybe an aloof photographer bossing us around, or another in a long line of trigger-happy “professionals” who’d take 100 shots just to get 1 usable pose. Thankfully, the experience was fantastic and has only gotten better on each subsequent visit.

It’s a rare thing to find someone who is both approachable on a personal level and a consummate professional, but Pam is that rare person. She’s fantastic to work with, and truly cares about giving us the best experience. I couldn’t be happier with our sessions and the resulting photos, and I look forward to future sessions.
