Our family has been blessed to have Desiree take senior photos for our two oldest children. She made a point of understanding each one of them--their personalities, interests, and passions. She then chose perfect locations to capture these. She created images that embody who our kids really are. Not only are these photos gorgeous, but they are a glimpse into the lives of our children when they were seniors in high school. While we cannot keep them in that place forever, we are reminded of so much each time we look at the photos that Desiree so lovingly and professionally produced. We overwhelmingly recommend Desiree as a photographer.

"Desiree did a great job with our family portraits. We had our extended family with multiple generations (including kids and a puppy), and she was able to capture special moments with each individual family as well as the group as a whole. She had great ideas and was great to work with!"

I highly recommend Desiree Steele for any photography work you may need. She is outgoing, personable, very easy to work with, and seemed to really care about what we wanted from our photo shoot. She quickly caught on to our family's "personality", and really captured the true nature of our kids, which I loved! Her shots are very creative and unique - a welcome change from stiff, posed photography. If you have a special event or season of life you'd like to capture on film, I highly recommend Desiree Steele!l

"Desiree Steele carries the camera work and editing of a professional with the care and passion of a mother, making her photos warm and authentic. It's impossible to be uncomfortable around a photographer like Desiree - she's just too much fun for anyone to feel pressured while shooting. I would recommend her to anyone of all ages."

Mrs. Steele is a wonderful photographer. Her photo session with me was very enjoyable. She made me feel comfortable, allowing the pictures to be more natural and to capture more personality than a fake smile could ever show. The raw pictures were sent to me quickly, and the final edits look great! I absolutely love my senior pictures and am so grateful to Mrs. Steele for helping me commemorate this special season of life!

-Hallie Skansi "I found Desiree through Facebook, as she was the photographer for some senior portraits I was admiring online. I was quite impressed with what I saw and decided to give her a call when I needed some updated, professional photos taken. I have been happy with photos previous photographers have taken of me, but I never really loved them. The photos Desiree took of me were incredible! She was able to capture exactly the style I was looking for without making me do any silly poses. The lighting was beautiful and she worked without complaint on a very hot, summer day. Desiree is now my #1 go-to for photos. I highly recommend her photography services!"
-Carolyn Hagler "If you are at all considering getting senior photos this is the place to do it! I feel as though a lot of people may be nervous getting in front of a camera. But that will not be an issue here! Mama Steele gives you the perfect amount of direction and freedom when shooting. She will definitely make you feel comfortable. Overall it is a very pleasant and fun experience! The editing turnaround is quick and the results speak for themselves. I can not recommend her services enough!"
-Jade Fabello "Desiree exudes warmth and positivity. She makes everyone around her feel comfortable and happy, as evidenced by the beautiful, candid, intimate photos she takes. You will love the way she captures and preserves your special moments and memories." Lauren Hug "Desiree took our family pictures in the fall and my daughter's senior pictures. She is an AMAZING photographer! We are so pleased with the photos. She does a great job making people feel comfortable in the photos and really captures the essence of people and their personalities. The pictures came out natural and relaxed. I feel like the pics are good representations of who we are. I am so grateful that we chose Desiree for both photo shoots. Mary was very comfortable during the photo shoot and it shows in the pictures. They are keepsakes we will treasure for a lifetime. We will be using Desiree again for family shoots and when our sons are seniors. She is easy to build rapport with and feel comfortable around. We love how she captured the city backgrounds in Mary's photos. I fully recommend Desiree. She's reliable, fun, and gets great results!"" Amy Dunsmore
