We both had such a great time, and I really appreciate your working in such an upbeat and encouraging way! You and Melissa are wonderful to work with; I can see why everyone wants pictures by Frank! We will get to look at the pictures more through the week, but it is going to be so hard to choose. She looks beautiful in everyone of them!" -Sonja
