“McCala did a fantastic job with our photos. I can’t say enough great things. She’s personable, not pushy, and had great ideas. What I thought was really special is she asked my kids things like “which tree is your favorite?” To some this might seem like a small and silly question but making them feel involved really brought out their smiles. A++. We will use McCala and Moodie Views again. 🙂“- Meghan
