No crayons in the living room. Finish your peas. Stop licking the TV.
You like to call the shots. But when it comes to taking them, step aside and let photographer Diana Hall work her magic.
After touring your pad and getting to know the fam, Hall selects a shoot location that complements your decor and personality. And she’ll rummage through everyone’s closet to find ensembles befitting the backdrop, whether it’s a billowy bed or funky downtown spot.
The end result? Crisp, modern, magazine-worthy images that capture the essence of your brood.
In other words, they rule.
