"We are not just pleased, but ecstatic about our daughters images! I have showed a few friends and everyone has said they are the most beautiful senior pictures they have ever seen. You really captured her spirit/personality."

Karilyn Taylor

"Thank you, again, for the wonderful experience for my daughter. She was apprehensive about doing senior portraits, but I'm so very grateful she had such a positive experience with you. You are so talented and kind, and captured our girl beautifully. I sure hope you'll still be doing senior pics in 4 years when it's our youngest daughter's turn! I'll be calling to book!"

Julie Walz

"The photos are absolutely beautiful. We loved how our daughter's outfits coordinated with the background of the photos. The poses and settings are beautiful. It was such a pleasure to work with you. I know that you made our daughter feel very much at ease during the shoot. "

Rachel Lodge

"Thank you so much for everything Tracy!  You are amazing in your artistic ability and the way you run your business."

Alissa Garcia

"I cannot express my thanks enough to you for such a wonderful experience you provided for my daughter. She was kind of nervous because she is a very sensitive and self-conscious person. Every photo in the gallery is amazing."

Ruthie Osburn

"I honestly can't tell you how much we love our images! You captured our daughter so well and friends have given us so many compliments. What a wonderful experience."

​​"Tracy Waitkus Photography was a pleasure to work with, so organized and responsive. One of the reasons we picked you was because your website was so informative and well laid out (and full of amazing pictures!), and it immediately became apparent from our first contact that the same level of organization was prevalent in how you conduct your business as well. So thank you for that level of professionalism as well as being a great photographer! It was a pleasant experience from A to Z."

Julia Stanton

"Our daughter's bat mitzvah photos are fantastic, really beautiful. I love the dance shots with my husband, and you caught my daughter's personality perfectly on the dance floor. Thank you for a thoroughly professional and absolutely gorgeously shot event. You captured it perfectly. We look forward to working with you again."

Adrienne Shivers

"I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with Tracy Waitkus Photography a number of times over the last several years. I am always impressed with Tracy's creativity, professionalism, and of course, the end result. I am proud to show off the stunning photos of my children and of our family's special events. I often joke with friends that I feel like I have my own personal photographer, and feel sincerely confident when recommending her services to friends and colleagues."

Allison Ferroggiaro

"We hired Tracy Waitkus Photography to photograph our organization's last two fundraisers and we would definitely hire her again.  She captured all aspects of the fundraiser from the decor and entertainment to the guests and provided us with the right amount of posed and candid shots.  Tracy's photographs are beautiful and she is easy to work with, prompt, responsive, and very professional.  I would recommend her without hesitation."

Stephanie Barclay

"Thanks again for everything you did to make this so easy in every way."

Jennifer Koos

"Tracy did a beach shoot with my daughters, ages 10 and 16. She was so encouraging and positive and got some amazing photos! The girls had a lot of fun. Also, after spending quite a bit of time on the regular photo shoot, I asked her to take some photos to use as audition headshots, and she was very gracious to spend more time getting just what we needed. I would very highly recommend her!"

Shannon Freeby

"I love the photos Tracy has taken of my family. She has natural talent, clever ideas and is hard working, organized and reliable. That's everything I want in a photographer! "
