We have had the pleasure of working with Aliza for our family photos the last two years running. (We plan it around my son's Birthday in late August, so we combine the two and use them for our holiday cards to boot!) Many of you can relate to the challenges of taking quality photos with an active toddler in tow. It's stressful, to say the least! Aliza put our son at ease with her energy, props, and cheerful personality - and subsequently my husband and I were able to relax as well. She likes to work with natural light in a variety of settings, and captures beautiful candid moments as well as some posed shots as desired. We ran all around Appleford Estate, and despite the heat she was able to wrangle all of us, her equipment and everyone's sanity while taking wonderful photos! Her prices are reasonable, and her playful yet professional style brings out the best in her subjects. I'd recommend Aliza Schlabach the next time you're in need of a photographer - just leave late August open for us!
