"Vanessa Houchens is absolutely the best in her field. I was so pleased with how our newborn photos turned out. She captured the natural beauty of our newborn. The photos including props were beautiful but I fell in love with the more simplistic photos with just our sweet baby. She is so good with newborns and toddlers as well! She managed to keep my 3 yr old calm and even let her use her camera to take some photos of her. I can't wait to see what she can capture of our family down the road!"

"I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone who is looking for a newborn photographer.  You will absolutely love her work; she truly has a gift.  My baby didn't make a peep the entire time she worked with him.  Vanessa kept him cozy and warm during the session.  There was no stress involved at all!  Did I mention that all our pictures were amazing?  I will forever cherish them!"

"If you are looking for a great newborn photographer, Vanessa Houchens comes highly recommended by the Thompson family! It is apparent with every photo she takes that photography is Vanessa’s passion. She did an absolute beautiful job capturing the sweetest moments of our 7 day old son, Jack. We will forever treasure these photographs."

"Vanessa did a fantastic job on our little one. During the few hours she spent with us, we could tell she was very passionate about her job. She traveled over 2 hours to work with us, was very friendly, and most importantly was great with our little Cooper. We would recommend Vanessa to anyone and plan to use her again in the near future."

"I just want to let everyone know that Vanessa Houchens is a true artist and her photography leaves one breathless. One photo can tell a whole story. She recently did a session with my daughter and son-in-law and their new baby. After two miscarriages and endless fertility treatments they were blessed with a beautiful little ginger haired daughter that the whole family welcomed and celebrated with tears of joy. Vanessa took a photo of Jessica and her baby Bobbi Kate that touched me more than any photo has in my life. All the struggles, heartbreak and joy showed on Jessica's face as she gazed at her perfect daughter. When I saw this photograph I lost it. It was just so beautiful and powerful that I couldn't stop the tears. If you want your family's precious moments captured in true art form that you will be proud to hand down to future generations, Vanessa is the only photographer that has the heart and the talent to capture these moments."

"Vanessa is truly one of a kind! She is incredibly talented with a heart of gold. Her photography is spot on and so is her customer service. She is fantastic with babies and goes above and beyond to deliver the most gorgeous galleries. We are so grateful for the images she has captured of our one month old twins and our family. The biggest problem we had was choosing one to make into a canvas. They were ALL that good! We will definitely be seeing her for milestones throughout the year! We highly recommend her!!"

"Seeing all of Vanessa's precious newborn pictures made me regret not having any done of my baby, so I thought better late than never and booked her for my son's 1 year pictures. She did an amazing job and is easy to work with. She is very patient and is great with kids of all ages (I have a 5 year old too). When we got in the car I told my husband that it was the most relaxed, stress free photo session I had ever done which I believe says a lot about the photographer!"
