    What a wonderful experience. Sonia did some tintypes for me nude, semi clothed in the surrounding bush of my home. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and made me feel extremely comfortable. And of course the results were fantastic. Highly recommended. If you want something unique, Sonia is your lady!

    Sonia worked with me during a recent trip to Cambodia. I was so absolutely impressed with the way Sonia won peoples respect and confidence with her gentleness and warmth before she began to take photos, her concentration and ability to focus only on her subjects was amazing, when she was surrounded with such poverty and heartbreaking situations. I know her heart broke at times, but she captured exactly what was going on around her in a professional manner. She is some amazing Christian lady, Christ shines out of her.
