We'll Impress You
" Kim James is not only a photographer. She is a mother, friend, leader, writer, painter, chef, florist (I could keep going).... and she is amazing at all of it. Yet her raw ability to see so much life through the lens makes her talent unmatched against any other photographer. It takes someone very gifted to take any ordinary subject and transform it into a hundred beautiful pictures. Kim James has this gift. Not to mention she is smart as a whip and so much fun to work with! " ~ Ali McNeil singer songwriter.
"Thanks for checking, yes! I got the disk yesterday evening !
Your packaging is so professional and thoughtful, no detail over looked! I believe that says a lot about who you are as a photographer. I popped it into my computer late last night when I returned home from work and it worked great! I don't have the best way to view pictures on my computer so we're going to try it on Danny's computer today. Thank you for doing both full size files and web ready files, that is very helpful. There were many new photos for me to fall in love with and I can't wait to review them more in detail with Danny this afternoon! Thank you again for your professionalism, flexablity and all your help! I so appreciate your sense of adventure and creative mind."
