  • “Oh my gosh, Virginia!  I have no words, only smiles and tears, to express how incredible these images are. We are so very grateful to have had the opportunity to spend the morning with you. You truly captured all of the beauty of our Saturday, the spunk of little Miss Crazy Hair, the sweetness in our littlest, and how much Steve relies on and relishes that morning coffee.  I would love to do a bit more with Genevieve in a few months and I know we will be coming back for more over the years- you’re stuck with us now. Thank you times infinity! You’re an amazingly talented and all around awesome person!” -Mar (session 1)
  • “LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.  OBSESSED.  You. Are. Amazing.  I’m speechless, and I feel like we owe you at least 800 more dinners, and a million more beers. Your company was fun enough the other night; I can’t believe all of these amazing shots you captured too! Can’t wait to see the pics post tomorrow! Your preview just made my night!  So…what I’m basically saying is I hate them… ; )” – Stacy
  • “Sobbing at my desk like a baby!  Just amazing!  Thank you so much Virginia.  I can’t tell you how much these photos and the experience means to me. For every teen-aged “You’re the worst mother,” “You ruin everything!” “I hate my life!” that I’m sure to endure, I’ll always have these reminders of how much they once liked to be around me and each other!” -Mar (session 2)
  • “So many times picture taking is a chore – getting dressed up, wrangling children and family members, avoiding meltdowns. This experience was completely enjoyable….you just have fun….live….and miraculously these amazing photos emerge. Virginia’s eye for the unique and sentimentally beautiful is impeccable. We’re so thankful for her awesome talent and look forward to more paparazzi fun in the future.” -Tiffany
  • “Virginia’s photos are so beautiful. Her portraits capture more than the person, they capture personalities. Amazing.” -Elizabeth
  • “Wow!!  Thank you so much.  It was the best photography experience we’ve had.”  -Lindsay
  • “These are incredible. You did such a great job! We really appreciate it! We’re already talking about which ones to print and frame.” – Mike
  • “We had a great time with Virginia and she got some great shots of our daughter. Virginia was easy to work with and kept things nice and casual, a major plus for those of us who hate posing for pictures. Some of her best shots were pictures we didn’t even know she was taking. If you are looking to avoid awkward, staged photos and cheesy jokes, definitely check out The Good Life Photography.” -Eamon
  • “Virginia did an amazing job taking gorgeous photos of my 1 year old, then 2 year old daughter, indoor and outdoor photos. I’ve gotten so many compliments on them, and so happy with how they turned out. Virginia is absolutely wonderful and patient with children. My daughter Grace can especially be difficult, and was giving us a hard time at first, but Virginia knew just how to handle her, and the photos ended up turning out amazing!! Virginia also goes above and beyond to make the whole experience special, stress free, and puts 100% effort into her work. I would (and have) recommended her to anyone!” – Gina
  • “Virginia is a great photographer, who is so much fun to work with. There was no pressure to get the “shot” we all just hung out and she took pictures. I would recommend Virginia to anyone!” – Mark
  • “I can not say enough about Virginia’s photos! I have always known she was talented but Avett’s photos turned out better than I could have hoped! Virginia has such a good (and unique) eye. She was not only able to get so many amazing shots, but also capture some great moments and funny little looks and gestures that are unique to our little guy! It will be so hard to decide on which prints to get! I even love her packaging for the disc of photos!!! Highly recommended!!” -Libby
  • “You are the sweetest lady I know…looking at these pictures and reading your post brought tears to my eyes…Again!!! It was such an amazing afternoon, thank you so much for taking our pictures and capturing some amazing moments and absolutely wonderful memories!!! ; )” -Erin
  • “LOVE LOVE LOVE them all!!! These are beautiful! Thank you for capturing some great faces and moments! Can’t wait to see the rest and can’t wait to do it again! : ) You are awesome!!” -Jen
