Photographer Review: The LXA

Full Disclosure: Vinny, from The LXA is the husband of a friend of mine from college. The opinions expressed as always are my very own.

When I found out I was expecting, almost immediately I mentioned to my husband that I wanted real professional photos of our baby.  I mean, what mom wouldn't want fabulous photos of their precious gift?

About 2 months before my due date I reached out to a couple photographers, and ended up going with The LXA, and I'm so glad that I did!

Things I loved about working with Vinny and LXA!
  1. Enthusiasm
    1. Vinny has a contagious enthusiastic personality. Prior to the session i'd only emailed Vinny, within 5 minutes I felt like we were besties just hanging out taking fabulous pics!
  2. Client Guided Shoot
    1. When we arrived he took the time to bond with Riley, and walk us through his ideas.
    2. The temperature was set very warm so that Riley would be comfortable during the shoot.
    3. Riley set the pace - we were not rushed (at all), if she was enjoying a set, we just kept shooting. If she didn't like it, we moved on. 
  3. Previews and Online Gallery
    1. The turn-around time to see some photos was crazy fast! (Riley's shoot)
    2. The on-line viewing made it easy for us to share the photos with friends and family
  4. Professionalism
    1. Working with Vinny is the perfect blend of working with a friend and professionalism. You get the professional and artistic images without the stuffy studio feeling (not that studios are bad) 
I was completely pleased with my entire LXA experience! Vinny treated Riley, my husband and I like family. I would without hesitation recommend him to anyone looking for pictures!
