Fun! Energetic! Natural and the happiest photographer we’ve ever used! She took a very natural, “us” approach to our pictures. Who we are- in our own environment! My daughter, Brooks, was so comfortable with her and she was able to capture some beautiful moments! So many great photos – how will we ever narrow it down or choose…that many good photos with an almost three year old is pure gold in and of itself! Abby was professional, on time, friendly and very easy to work with! I was also pleased with how quickly we got our edited photos back! I welcome any phone calls/emails about our experience with her and we strongly suggest booking her for your next photo session! You couldn’t possibly be disappointed!

We booked Abby B Photography for a family photo session, as a gift for my parent’s 35th wedding anniversary. Abby was open to location ideas and also gave us some suggestions of local spots where she has shot before. The photo shoot experience was professional and more importantly, it was fun and easy with Abby. While taking our photos, Abby communicated clearly, encouraged us to try a variety of positions and combinations of family members, and provided encouragement and compliments every step of the way! Our 7 family members ranged from age 4 to 61 and both Abby and her assistant worked excellently with each of us (even when the 4 year old was ready to call it quits). It was such an enjoyable day from start to finish!
The images….I could go on and on about these pictures!! Abby captured so many amazing, natural moments with such beautiful variation in scenery and expression. Many of the rarest gems were taken in between formal set ups, when we were unaware and simply interacting with each other. To anyone seeking high quality images and a friendly experience, I would highly recommend Abby B Photography for family photos, senior pictures, professional head shots, engagement moments, or wedding celebrations.

We hired Abby B. Photography to take our daughter’s senior pictures in September 2017. It was a great experience from beginning to end! Abby was very responsive and returned my call right away to schedule an appointment. She gave us several available dates/times and we were able to find a day that fit our schedule. We suggested a location near our home and when we arrived, Abby was already there scoping it out. Abby’s fun and outgoing personality immediately put my daughter at ease and she was great to work with. She was extremely flexible through several location and outfit changes and we never felt rushed. My family thoroughly enjoyed the photo session! Afterward, Abby chose the best photos and sent us a link to view them in less than a week. We were so impressed with the pictures! Her artistic eye and professional photography skills produced beautiful, natural photos that didn’t look staged and perfectly captured my daughter’s personality. We were also very happy with the variety of product options and reasonable prices. We would highly recommend Abby B Photography!

Abby took my Senior Pictures and did a wonderful job! Abby was very flexible with the place that I wanted to take my photographs and made sure that it would work. She is truly willing to do whatever makes you happy. Abby brings so much enthusiasm and love into her shoots and work! She is excited the entire time and tells you how great the photos look and how excited she is to see the final product! Abby is truly doing what she loves and makes it very apparent in her work ethic. I got the edited photos soon after they were taken and even got sneak a peak! The photos all turned out amazing. She has a knack to know what will look good and has great ideas on finding places to take photos. Overall, it was a great experience working with Abby and I would defiantly recommend her to others for any photography jobs!

My experience with Abby was absolutely amazing! There isn't anyone else I would of rather had my senior pictures taken with. The day of it was pouring rain but once we got out taking pictures, the weather cleared up and she made the pictures turn out perfect! It was such a fun experience and I was so comfortable and happy during that special day. Working with Abby was so much better than having my pictures taken by a big name company. She's doing so well conducting her small businesses and I love how passionate she is about what she loves doing. A truly genuine girl that loves what she does. It was a pleasure having my photos taken by her.

I am not into getting my picture taken at all. Abby made my photo shoot so comfortable and easy. She was able to get really great shots of me. I would highly recommend her for any photo even or shoot. Thanks again!

I am highly recommending Abby B studio in all of your professional photography needs. She is incredible!! I have four daughters, so senior pictures are probably the most money you will spend on a single photo session. I did not want to waste my time or money on something that wasn't going to be stunning. My daughter saw a picture of a friend and begged me to find that photographer to take her senior pictures. That was Abby. During our photo shoot she created so many amazing photographs, My daughter looked naturally beautiful, breathtaking!! I could see her character through these amazing pictures and they will be a memory of her high school years to last a lifetime. I wouldn’t look anywhere else, she is an amazingly talented photographer.
After such a wonderful experience, I decided I would have Abby B do our family picture as well. She was amazing again!! She let us choose the site of our pictures, but once there she managed the whole beautiful experience. One my family thought taking pictures was a chore, Abby made if fun and you could definitely see the fun we had as it is reflected in the amazing photographs that I will cherish for a lifetime!

Abby Bartes does more than just capture your picture on film; she creates an experience of memories that will last a lifetime. Abby also has a natural eye for finding landscapes that compliment the beauty of your pictures. Her bubbly personality help to put you at ease right from the start, which shows through in the finished product. It is amazing how these three combined attributes, in my opinion, make Abby one of, if not, the BEST photographers that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did taking senior photos of my twins. The photo shoot was amazing! Melissa, Alex, their sister Hannah, and I had so much fun. You chose three great locations and captured both of their personalities. Your great personality put everyone at ease. You have a special talent for making your subjects feel relaxed which brings out the best in them. This was an experience we will always remember and treasure. Keep up the great work! In two years we hope to book you for Hannah’s senior pictures!

I've never experienced a photographer like Abby who is so passionate and excited about her profession. 100% the most professional, creative, and energetic person in the business! We were thrilled with our daughters' senior pictures, as well as, the family photos including the dog! Abby had so many ideas and suggestions which she incorporated into the photos that really made the end result lovely and original. We will be hiring her again soon.
