"I contacted Albena because she was recommended on the Golden Gate Mother's Group list serve and she was GREAT. I initially was looking to schedule a newborn photoshoot for my daughter but decided to also do a maternity shoot. So, two weeks apart we spent several hours with her during a special time in our lives. She was great at making me, my partner and my infant happy and comfortable. I had put together a pinterest album of photos I was interested in doing and I expected her to suggest I pick a couple but she charged right thru shooting most of them even when it required shooting against different backgrounds and setting up different scenes. She spent a ton of time with us and has magic hands when it comes to handling babies. She managed to put our daughter into various poses and different backdrops while keeping her asleep. My partner and I still joke that we need Albena hands after we try to put our sleeping daughter down in her crib and she wakes up again."
