Molly we just can't thank you enough for making the entire experience amazing in every way! Not only did you make Layla look so gorgeous but you also made her feel gorgeous! The entire photo shoot was a truly lovely afternoon for us both.

From the moment we first connected you made us both feel super comfortable – as if we’ve known each other for years!

I loved how you personally connected with Layla to walk through outfits (sharing via text) and shooting locations. You listened to Layla in a way that allowed you to capture her exactly as she is - spunky, fun, adventurous, lively, and lets not leave out GORGEOUS!. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect of the outcome and yet I was BLOWN AWAY! You truly are so gifted at capturing beauty and I am forever grateful to have this special time in our lives captured so perfectly. Thank you forever.

My session with Molly Grace Photography could not have been more perfect! The day began with us coming to her beautiful, welcoming home where we laid out all of my outfits and decided our game plan. It was clear to see that Molly had paid close attention to all of the pre-session information that I had sent her, and that she really cared about the vision I had for the pictures. After that, we began shooting at her in-home studio, which was amazing! She was very detail oriented which made me feel very happy and comfortable, knowing that I had someone watching and making sure that everything was perfect. Her sweet personality also made me feel very comfortable! She cheered me on as we took the pictures, and brought up some simple conversation to keep me smiling and feeling my best. She also had drinks and snacks set out, just to ensure that we were happy, comfortable, and feeling our best!

Aside from the in-studio photos, I was blown away by the artistic vision that Molly had in mind before I even showed up for the pictures. As we went through my outfits, she listed off beautiful locations that would perfectly complement each look (and they truly did)! We went to beautiful barns, white brick walls, and breath taking fields--it was amazing! Even though most of the outside shoots consisted of me wearing summer dresses in 40 degree, windy weather, Molly made me feel very comfortable and cheered me on. She was also readily prepared with natural hairspray and hair gel to combat the wind's destruction, which was very helpful!! Molly was also amazing at posing me throughout all of our shooting. As we went through the different outfits and locations, she continuously looked through the Pinterest page that I created in order to achieve my exact desires, and she even put a personal, more comfortable twist on some of the poses.

Overall, I had an AMAZING experience with Molly Grace Photography. She really made my senior pictures feel so special and wonderful. Her sweet heart and genuine love for her job shined throughout our entire photoshoot and made me feel comfortable and happy. It was clear to see throughout everything that we did that she really cared about making the shoot perfectly tailored to what I wanted. My whole picture-taking experience with Molly was truely perfect!

Thank you again!

Lily: When I arrived at Molly Grace's home I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. It was my first time having a photo shoot done and she made the experience easy and fun! The pictures she took were fantastic and showed that she listened to my opinions about what I was looking for. I highly recommend her studio!

Lily’s mom Emily: Entrusting your Senior Photographs to someone requires that you have a high level of trust in their expertise, artistic sensibility, easy-to-work-with personality and that they are fun to be with! My daughter and I so enjoyed our time with Molly Grace! She had an excellent makeup and hair stylist, she paid close attention to the interests and preferences of my daughter, she selected fabulous locations and she captured my daughter beautifully. Her editorial approach to the photo shoot created shots that looked straight out of a magazine. I can't recommend highly enough!

I had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Molly Grace! I loved the amount of input I had in the session and how I was able to bounce ideas around with Molly, it really made the shoot more personalized.

I also loved the beautiful locations we visited, from Molly’s backyard, to a pretty blue wall, and a local farm. I loved the variety both in the locations and the outfits. Molly was so amazing to work with and you really get the sense that she loves her job and cares about you. She is encouraging and helpful while shooting and so fun to be around.

Molly has such a good sense of style and you can see that in the beauty of her house, the way she dresses herself, and the looks she helps put together for clients.

I would definitely recommend Molly Grace to anyone because of her talent, character, and style. She is by far one of the best photographers around and I look forward to working with her again!

From the picturesque day, the exquisite settings, to the creative flair of clothing changes, my experience with Molly Grace was more than just memorable.

As a customer I knew we were in good hands when we began to understand what a talented artist she truly is.

Her “eye” for capturing beauty and utilizing light was impeccable.

Molly’s photos are works of art and as a customer, you couldn’t be in better hands.

Molly Grace is a true artist! She has photographed all three of my kids over a period of five years.

She makes it fun and puts the kids at ease while delivering beautifully shot images. We will cherish their senior pictures for years to come.

Molly captured who they were at that fleeting time in their lives.

I’m so glad we hired her!
