We just finished our photo days with Color Portraits. The process was very easy and Kristin, our photographer, was great. She had a wonderful demeanor with the children and was a joy to work with. She worked hard to get the best shot and seemed to really enjoy what she was doing. I am eager to see the results. Please thank her for us. – Kathy Olsen, Ravina Nursery School
