Rob was so nice and helpful. My daughters loved doing the photo. It was a fun experience for our entire family. I am excited to use the picture for a Christmas Card. You are able to buy the disc with the photo on it.

We had family CW portrait taken in 2014 and the resulting photo we used for Christmas cards. Everyone still talks about it today. Rob is a true professional and his work is unmatched in the Gettysburg area. I plan to return again.
