I sooooo love the sneak peaks!!! The look on Holland’s and Ben’s faces were priceless in the first pic on the couch! I have not had a picture of myself and the kiddos in a long time and really love the ones of us on the bed! I am amazed and thrilled! I love love love these pics!! Thank you so much!! I am so excited to send the slide show to friends and family!!
Your talents are such a gift to my family! Your questionnaire was to lead us, the photo session captured us, and the printed results are true reflections of my family’s lifestyle, principles, and simply encapsulated “who we are”. It means so much to me that you were able to stop moments of our lives for us to enjoy always. In fact, I have filled a wall of my home with the artistry of your photography. Your gentle approach and instinct to be able to capture a typical daily activity and turn it into a cherished family memento is incredible.
It has been like Christmas around here this week just waiting to get a peak at what became of our beautiful day!
The pictures are breath taking and the one of Gracie and Daniel brings tears to my eyes. You truly captured the love : ) Thank you again for sharing such a beautiful day with our family. We can’t wait to see more!
One year later:
Your pictures always bring a smile to my face! One year after our session, I still look at our photos daily and get carried away in the joy that they radiate. You truly captured some very special moments and I wouldn’t trade them for anything! As the cherry trees began to bloom this spring, Gracie and Will both asked daily when could take more pictures with “Mrs. Davina” always pointing out a perfect spot. They had such a good time “hanging out” with you as you let their true personalities shine.
Thank you so much for taking pictures of my three little ones!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to see the pictures!
You have such a sweet spirit and such a nice way of interacting with the kids. No wonder you are so good at what you do!
Davina, we absolutely love you and love these images.
You truly made our day by spending the afternoon with us. We had so much fun and it was great to eat ice cream and just hang out. I am so impressed with your sincere desire to serve us and treat us like family. I shoot with different photographers almost every day (literally!) and you have always stuck out in my mind as one of the most dedicated and genuine photographers I have ever met. There are some people that come into your life and leave a mark that you never forget. When you are with them you think, ‘Wow, this person really is special.’ You are one of those people.
Thank you, thank you so much for being who you are and sharing your incredible talent with us. We love you!!!
As I look back on how quickly the years are passing by,
there is a delicate haze over all the details I wish I remembered more of…and so it gives me tremendous pleasure to have pictures that organically represent the personalities and little moments within our family. Spending a day with Davina was one of the best investments we ever made. She came into our home, lingered with the family, and soon our girls were comfortable with her presence. They blossomed into themselves, and her camera wasted no time capturing a day in our family’s life. When I look back at these images, I am overwhelmed by how the simplicity of the ordinary is truly extraordinary. Every single image is its own masterpiece…which is the brilliance, talent, and gift of Davina.
We are so thankful to have had the opportunity for you to photograph Dan doing the things he loves most:
wakeboarding and playing guitar. The images you captured are awesome, particularly of those on his wakeboard. Never before has his personality been captured in a photo so realistically, and the details so minute. My favorite is one where you were able to catch the height of his jump, the exact moment of his grab, the thrilled expression on his face, and the drops of water spraying from the board, all while balancing yourself and your camera in a moving boat! Not only was I thrilled, but he was also. Our challenge now is to limit ourselves from framing photos in every room of our house. I appreciate so much your willingnes to go out on the boat with us, the ease with which you related to my family, and creativity of the shots you took. I look forward to another session soon!
Thank you for the incredible photos and memories you captured for us at the apple orchard this fall.
In working with you personally and in speaking with the many patients you have shared your talents with, it is clear that you have a unique gift of being able to capture timeless, special moments on film.
During our shoot we were surprised how ‘in the background’ you were while our family enjoyed a beautiful day at the orchard. You were great with the kids, incredibly patient, and always looking for just the perfect light for the moment. Your easy going manner made the photo shoot seem more natural than we expected and the photos show it. The images illustrate beautifully our children’s personalities in just the right way; you were somehow able to capture in one moment who Blaine and Mason are. As they get older, we know we will cherish the photographs.
Your talent with the camera is special, artistic and something that cannot be found anywhere else. Thank you very much for capturing these special memories for us.
-Kevin and Emily, dad and mom
I wanted to thank you for the beautiful images of our little family!
They mean more to us than you’ll ever know. Having you attend the birth of our precious baby girl was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made! You captured moments that would have otherwise been lost and forgotten, and I can’t thank you enough for that. I was apprehensive about inviting someone in to share in that intimate moment with my husband and baby, but you put us totally at ease, and blended so well into our birth experience! It was wonderful to be able to focus on the task at hand (having my sweet girl) and not worry about whether or not Bobby was getting plenty of pictures! Also, I treasure the photos of my big girl settling into her new role as a big sister! So much happens and changes in those first few days of a new baby, and I’m forever grateful that we have some of that precious time documented by your beautiful work. I loved having you come to our home to photograph us in “our” world. Our pictures are such real bits of our lives! Every single image stirs such a wonderful feeling in me, and I have you to thank for that!
Thank you for becoming a part of our growing family through your lens!
