FAMILIES Testimonials

“Our family photo by the Carls is priceless to me.  They have a wonderful way with all of the animals.  With their creativity and patience, Josh and I were able to have our whole family (with 6 dogs and 3 cats at that time) in one beautiful family photo.  It is all of our joy captured in one image.  It's well worth it.  I love their work.  They also did a wonderful job on our wedding!” ~ Karen Stoermer
