Kind Words

"Kim DeGooyer of semi sweet studios is an artist! She captured sweet and honest moments of my children’s personalities both candid and posed. There were so many lovely photos I could hardly choose! I am thrilled to finally have a wonderful family portrait of all of us looking like ourselves but somehow better! Kim is patient, creative and took her time letting the children be themselves and I would recommend semi sweet studios to everyone wanting to capture memories of their loved ones. Thanks Kim!"  -Alyson Kaushansky


"I am absolutely thrilled with the images from our session with Kim. She captured my family beautifully, and was great to work with. I will recommend her highly to my friends, and look forward to working with her again in the future. Thank you so much, Kim! These pictures are gorgeous!" - Alexandra Berlow


"We are thrilled with our portrait canvases. They look great in our home and we have received many compliments on them! Thank you so much for being so accommodating and going out of your way to make sure we are happy. "   -  Nancy M. 


"In working with Kim for our family holiday card, both her professionalism and artistry were evident. She made it easy to schedule our photo session, worked with us, our dog and natural surroundings with beautiful results and enhanced our shots just enough to give us the relaxed, fun family portraits we were looking for. We loved so many of the pictures that we ordered a photo album to show them off in our home. Kim designed the perfect modern-feeling album of both color and black and white portraits with a bright green padded cover. We got gorgeous, memorable portraits of our family without spending tons of time or money - Semi-Sweet Studios did it all at a very reasonable price." - Kristen T.


"We could not be happier that we chose Kim to capture our family photographs. We had a session when my parents were in town to visit and I know my parents treasure the shots that she composed of them with their grandchildren. We also had Kim capture our kids on the front steps of our new home to commemorate our first year there and the photographs took our breath away. We have a very fancy camera, but have never managed to capture anything close to the clarity and magic that Kim has. Somehow, she seems to catch moments that we miss with the naked eye. A look of tenderness between my daughter and son. The sweetness of my daughter at 7. The serenity of my father at 72. The pictures are still, the moments are quiet, but there is so much life in them. We were completely blown away when we saw the proofs. I know Kim will be capturing many more shots for us over the years to come. Highly recommend!"   -  Tracy R.
