As a busy mom of 3 daughters, I've been blessed to be able to have lots of photos made of my girls. We visited Cora for the first time about 10 years ago. Our photos were amazing! That is what initially made me come back. Since then, my family has fallen in love with both Cora's gift to capture the BEST shots, and with the artist herself! We have happiliy followed Cora through, now, 3 different locations of her studio.
She is the ON LY photographer who can ALWAYS get a great shot of all three of my girls - both in group shots, and individual shots. (And parents, you know that's not easy - someone is almost always looking off somewhere, or making a goofy face.) Cora has taken Christmas, Easter, Halloween, birthday, and everyday shots of my girls. She has photographed my family on several occasions, including taking my maternity shots of my third pregnancy. Cora also took great ""professional"" headshots of my husband for his use in his business and on his website. Cora is always open to hearing & understanding the kind of shots I'm imagining, and then going above and beyond!
Gift certificates to Cora's are one of my family's standard baby & wedding gifts.
Cora does have a BIG PERSONALITY, so my guess is that a person expecting a demure, quiet photographer, might be a bit taken aback by her. However, after all this time, the Cora I have come to know is not only an extremely gifted artist, but also has one of the biggest hearts, and most compassion of anyone I've met. She is just amazing. It makes me sad for the folks who wrote less favorable reviews, that did not allow themselves to see that sweetness.
