"Lavona is absolutely WONDERFUL! She is truly talented behind the camera and creatively gifted to get just the right shot! Both my daughter and I enjoyed our session and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lavona to take part in capturing your special moments! I cannot say enough about how AMAZING she is personally and professionally! We will definitely photograph with her again! Thank you Lavona for the wonderful experience!" ~ Tara A.

"Formerly an interior designer, Ms. Gelardi draws upon her artistic ability to create beautiful vignettes, simultaneously drawing out and highlighting the very best from her subjects. Her flair for creating and capturing a mood was, for us, unparalleled. My daughter and I recently experienced a photo shoot with Ms. Gelardi. Yes, I said “experienced”, because that’s what it was… an experience. We came out feeling a little spoiled and special and ultimately thrilled with the finished product, which we will be able to treasure always." ~ Stacy S

"Lavona is a true artist! She is a magician behind the camera, the end results are heirloom keepsakes. Her photos aren’t just photos, I’ve experienced many photographers through the years and I have never encounter one that has captured the entire story of my children the way she has. Look forward to future sessions. Thank you Lavona!" ~ Martha G

"She's the best!!!" ~ Dina O.

"Our goal was to capture the family in the moment with realism and fun. Lavona Gelardi helped the day become so much more. She responded almost instantaneously to my inquiry. She was up for the challenge of a quick assemblage at a cold, remote site and then she turned the morning in to magic. We now have heritage artistry with the whole family looking uniquely at their best with hints of their beyond. I cannot recommend Lavona, her work and able assistant highly enough! "  ~ Robyn D

"I was amazed at how my pictures turned out. Lavona has a unique talent for capturing personality. I love every photo of me and my horse. I usually don't like photos of myself. It has been a wonderful experience having my portraits done and I have something unique and special that my kids and future grandkids can enjoy." ~ Laura D
