Harrison, NY - "Karen from Looking Up Photography is amazing. According to my pediatrician, my daughter is very feisty compared to most babies. With some very gentle handling and impressive swaddling, Karen was able to keep her calm and relaxed for the entire session. The photos also far exceeded my expectations. They are beyond adorable. Karen also makes the process easy by allowing you to do everything but the photo session online. You can pay your bill online and then download the finished photos online. She then mails you the prints or anything else you ordered. She is also very quick to respond when you contact her. We plan on using Karen again for our next family photos and would definitely recommend her to others." - Valerie L
