I'm very creative and can work around any situation.  Additional family members welcome at no additional cost in this relaxed setting. You receive at a minimum 45-60 fully edited, high resolution images with print release.  Private gallery viewing with option to print directly from your gallery if you prefer (extra fee to print).
