    Paula Fugman – I really can't beielve how beautiful Zara is; what a gift to have these images of her available to share with friends and family. I particularly liked the artistic quality of the feet image, her wide open alert eyes, her marvelous lips, Mom and she together, the sleeping image on the top of the page and on and on. I'm greateful for these pictures and now understand why you had them taken.Love, Grandma Paula

    Mattie, I am a geek and a nerd. I don't find it degrading because I am PROUD to be a geek and a nerd.

    Why do you insist on willingly insulting the readers? Continued use of the words "nerd" and "geek" is completely degrading. May fleas infest your crotch.

      Paula Hendry – Lailah,I love the work you do and the relaxed atsepmhore you create during your sessions. That's really important when you have new parents and grandparents. You also have a great sense of humor and don't take yourself too seriously. After all, who else can laugh when the subject of the photo shoot goes' all over the props and we have to stop to clean everything before proceeding. I think most photographers would get angry, but you take it in stride and this is a great quality you need to keep. It was great to see you again. GREAT WORK.Paula
