Angie  commented on  February 15th, 2011

Every year my family goes on vacation together. This year we picked Myrtle Beach, SC. Our son surprised us with Denise Jane Portrait Design, Inc to have family pictures done on the beach. We couldn't have picked a better day. Denise captured wonderful shots of all of us. Little did I know how much our family pictures would mean to me. Two weeks after our pictures were taken I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the fight of my life began. My family has been the rock to my survival and keep me going even when it gets rough. I still have a long road ahead of me, with my family by my side I know that I can conquer anything. Thank you Denise for the fantastic pictures of my fantastic family. I will cherish them forever.

Cindy George  commented on  February 17th, 2011

A friend's daughter had her Senior pictures taken by Denise Jane. We were so impressed we knew we had to have our daughters Senior pictures done by Denise. At our consultation appointment, Denise took time to show us her work, detail the packages and prices and set up appointments that worked with our schedules. We went for the "test" shoot this evening and it was everthing we expected and more! She spent time taking pictures inside and outside paying special attention to every detail. Denise was more than willing to allow our daughter to express her true self through the many outfits and accessories she brought. We chose the 4 seasons package and are looking forward to this once in a lifetime experience all at Denise's talented hands and "lens". I recommend Denise to anyone who wishes to have quality Senior portraits that they will cherish for years to come!

Cassy Beach  commented on  March 10th, 2011

"You get more of a variety with Denise Jane-from taking the pictures in a studio to your own destination, your school, or even the Beach! I got to pick many outfits to wear for my pictures. My destination was the railroad tracks in my town and I even got pictures with my car! They ALL looked AWESOME! You will get great deals, especially if you refer other people and they go to her to get their photos done! I recommend calling Denise Jane and setting up an appointment to have an amazing experience and to see what she is all about!

Zack Maier  commented on  March 10th, 2011

My experience with Denise Jane was awesome! Taking pictures is not my favorite thing in the world, but she made it really relaxed and fun! Plus, the pictures turned out a thousand times better than the others that I took.

Julie Kennedy  commented on  March 10th, 2011

Denise Jane Rocks!! My bridal portraits are BEAUTIFUL!! Denise captured exactly what I was looking for. It is like she read my mind completely. The pictures are great but the experience was even better. Denise created a relaxed environment and was very easy to work with. I can't wait for my wedding!!

Carol Anne  commented on  March 10th, 2011

Denise is the best!!!! She did my youngest son's Senior Portraits and they were FANTASTIC!! Then she did a family portrait for us and it is amazing that she captured the relationship between my two sons. What an eye she has. You will NEVER, EVER find a better photographer!

Cindy  commented on  March 10th, 2011

our daughter's Senior Portraits after seeing the excellent job she did for a friend's daughter. We met with Denise and she took extensive time and effort to explain her portrait packages and prices. No question was left unanswered. We chose the "4 Seasons" package. Denise will be traveling to Bryce Resort for winter pictures, to Woodstock for Spring pictures at the Historic Courthouse and various other locations our daughter has chosen. If you want a fun, memorable Senior Portrait experience, I would HIGHLY recommend Denise Jane Portrait Design. You will not be disapointed!

Crystal St. Clair  commented on  March 22nd, 2011

If you are a parent,and like me,are very hesitant about who takes your child's Sr. pics,then let me invite you to the best experience that you will ever have from start to finish.Denise Jane is absolutely the place to go! You can compare prices and in the end you will get way more for your money with her. The time,and enthusiasm that she put's toward her clients cant be beat. She goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and look %100 your best. Samantha,wanted a totally different spin on her pics,not the same old thing everyone else was doing.She had great ideas and Denise was extremely excited to go out of the box and do whatever she wanted.Today was her first shoot and IT WAS FUN!! Denise will make sure you have a blast. So if you really want to catch the real kid you raised these 18 yrs,then you should book with Denise Jane because she will calm those nerves and bring the Sr. you know, alive in all the photos. And isn't that what we all want to remember our kids SR. year like? Them being themselves,not uncomfortable,nervous and uptight with fake smiles. You gotta make and appointment soon though because she is already booking the 2012 Sr. portraits. you wont regret it.And your Sr. will be tickled with your decision. Thanks , Crystal St.Clair Samantha St.Clair (SR. @ S.H.S.)

Samantha St.Clair  commented on  March 29th, 2011

Denise Jane pulled the song from my heart & put it into focus. My experience was anything but ordinary. I wasn't stuck with just 2 outfit changes & a place to be photographed. The possibilities were endless. She listened to my ideas & took them to another level. She made it a FUN,mellow,yet EXCITING experience. No need to feel nervous, just be yourself; after all it is your Sr. pic.If you're an upcoming JR. or Sr.,let DENISE JANE put your heart-song into focus today. Thanks, Samantha St.Clair (Sr. @ Strasburg High)

Tyler Henry  commented on  March 29th, 2011

"Denise Jane made my photo shoot exciting and fun. It was not uptight or stuffy. She is very laid back. She is funny and very down to Earth. After just a few minutes I wasn't nervous at all and felt like I was just hanging out with a friend. I felt like she really listened to what I what I wanted. She's great!" - Tyler Henry-SHS

Alice Bischoff-Mother of HS Senior  commented on  March 29th, 2011

"All I had to do was look at a few of Denise Jane's prior shoots to know that she was the photographer for us. Every one of her Senior sessions was unique. There were no two alike. I knew that she would let my son's individuality and personality guide his shoot and she did not prove me wrong! She let my son tell HIS story. The shoot was all about HIM and what HE wanted to say. She put us both at ease. It was by far the most fun and stress free photo shoot I have ever been a part of! There will never be another photographer for me and my family!" Alice Bischoff

Gene Eidson  commented on  March 29th, 2011

Denise, I just wanted to say thank you again for archiving Lauren's wedding through your wonderful photography. I thank you for working with us within our budget. Through the generosity of our friends in providing the flower arrangements, baking the breads, setting-up and cleaning up, we were able to give Lauren the wedding she wanted within my budget. Having dedicated most of my career to establishing and running a nonprofit to protect and restore southern rivers, swamps, and wetlands, my budget was limited. Thank you again. It was a delight to meet your mother also. Your professionalism and wonderful manner in making everyone feel at ease helped make the day so enjoyable. Best Regards, Gene Eidson

Shayln Weaver  commented on  March 29th, 2011

I have known Denise since I was little, and we always talked about her doing my senior pictures. High School came on so sudden and now look at me I am a senior. I soon realized I had a lot to plan for, but I always knew that Denise would be doing my pictures. I am extremely happy that she did them. When it came down to taking the pictures she is the best. I had a blast in the studio and on location. I don't know anyone that goes somewhere else outside of the studio. It's awesome how much she cares about your pictures and the client. She is the type that will let your personality shine through to a picture. I had a memorable time taking pictures on the farm and creek two of my favorite places to be. I've always loved photography and have wanted to take classes and maybe major in it when I go to college, she is a pure inspiration. I would love to be as good as her and as successful. Hands down if anyone asked me who they should go to, it would be Denise Jane!

Josh Hudson-Hudson's Portrait Design  commented on  March 29th, 2011

Denise Jane is hands down the best photographer on the east coast! I had her fly out to Seattle to photograph my wedding! Luv ya!-Josh Hudson-

Kristen Williams  commented on  March 29th, 2011

WOW! I had such a blast with Denise Jane! She's awesome! When we took pictures outside, I was so amazed because she just brought all of her photography equipment and didn't even need a studio! Denise Jane is blessed with the talent to take awe-inspiring photographs. Thank you so much for this awesome experience! Kristin Williams -Williston-Elko High School

Rachel Whaley  commented on  March 29th, 2011

I really enjoyed my senior session with you. I had so much fun and I felt that you really took the time to know who I was and what my interests were. You completely captured my personality and I'm very excited about getting my book and prints. Thank you so much for taking so much time with me and making my pictures amazing!!! I definitely want you to take pictures for my wedding and other events. Thank you again for my session. It was one of the funnest days and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer.

Josh Mensinger  commented on  March 31st, 2011

Hey Denise I just wanted to tell you again thank you for such an awesome experience. I honestly didn't think I'd have so much fun. I figured it would just be like any other photographer that just says stand there and smile, but you made it so much more personal. I could really tell you love your job. Oh and I can't forget your Mom, she was great too! I'll never forget that CRAZY old lady that came out and yelled at us for taking pictures at that fence. That was so hilarious. I wish I could go back and do it all again. Can't wait to get all my pictures back, there are soo many good ones :)

Jason Klein  commented on  April 10th, 2011

You make a difference with what you do-you let people see the best sides of themselves through your craftsmanship...priceless!

Todd & Marcia Gaul  commented on  April 18th, 2011

Denise, you are an awesome photographer and all-around wonderful person. We had such a great experience with you. Our family portraits on the beach and beautiful senior portraits of Nicole will be cherished forever. We are still in awe of the great shots you got and how great we looked in all of them! We couldn't decide what to buy so I think I bought them all! We especially love the leather bound family album. Whenever we show it off, we get so many wonderful compliments. You are incredibly gifted and we are so glad we found you. We'll do it again with Dylan very soon!

Jennifer & Scott Kline  commented on  April 26th, 2011

Denise hope you had a wonderful birthday! I just wanted to say thank you for the most beautiful wedding album! I have not been able to put it down you captured every precious moment and more. It is truly amazing! I can't thank you enough!

Cassie Myers  commented on  May 3rd, 2011

Brandy Clem  commented on  May 6th, 2011

My experience with Denise was wonderful! I was a little nervous at first and didn't know what to expect but she helped me warm up to the camera right away! She let me be fun and crazy but also brought out faces and poses I didn't even think in was capable of! She worked with all my ideas and even gave me some new ones. So thank you Denise my senior pictures will be something to look back on and smile! -Brandy Clem SR Strasburg High School

Taylor Hill  commented on  May 10th, 2011

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful experience I had being photographed! It was fun, and you were so encouraging, and informative. Not to mention I love the photos! Thank you for all your professional advice. At first I was nervous because I haven't been photographed for a while but the whole event was relaxing and exhilarating at the same time, I never felt more comfortable. I look forward to working with you again soon. My family and I will be sure to recommend you to everyone we know for all types of photography! Thank you so much, Taylor Hill(SHS)

Andrew Dale Ragland  commented on  March 22nd, 2012

I really had fun at the studio with Denise. She was very helpful in picking out my clothes and she let me bring my own props. I was able to bring my great grandpa's guitar and my skateboard. I can't wait for my next session. Denise has a friendly attitude and she made me feel comfortable. It was cool that she captured me at my best and my mom can't wait to showcase my senior pics for years to come. Denise Jane rocks and her love for photography shows in each picture. Thank you again. -Andrew Dale Ragland-Central High School

Anna Ragland  commented on  March 22nd, 2012

I would recommend Denise Jane for any senior who wants great pictures and a fun and energetic photo shoot! Denise is fun to work with and makes you feel confident with each picture she takes. I was amazed how great I felt after the first photo session and all my family and friends can say is wow! I absolutely love the pictures :) Thank you, Anna Ragland-Central High School

Brittney Jackson  commented on  March 22nd, 2012

My experience with Denise Jane was something I’ll never forget. I was really nervous when I came because I’ve never modeled and I didn’t want to mess up, but Denise Jane helped me through the entire thing. She got me to relax and let go of everything. Once we got started, It was so much fun! She has great ideas and tips to make my pictures look perfect, and I think my photo shoot defined who I am as a person. Whether I’m skiing on the slopes or just loving life, my senior pictures by Denise Jane will be cherished for a lifetime. -Brittney Jackson-Strasburg High School

Katie Dofermire  commented on  February 4th, 2014

ATTENTION CLASS OF 2015 AND FAMILIES! Let me tell you about the wonderful experience I had with Seniors by Denise Jane. Back in June I had a two day photo session with Denise Jane and it was something I’ll never forget. For those of you who know me well, you know I’m not one to dress up often, nor am I a fan of having my picture taken (except for the occasional selfie:D) Anyways, Denise Jane made me feel so comfortable in her studio, it was like I was at home taking pictures. Each pose was something different and my smile was never a forced smile. Denise Jane also did a family session with my mom, little sister, and both my grandma and grandpa. Denise Jane Portrait Design, INC fit perfectly into our family during that session. It never really seemed like we had to truly smile for the camera, because we were so relaxed and calm, everything flowed smoothly and perfectly, the smiles really came naturally. With Denise Jane everything feels so comfortable and like she is part of your family while you’re with her. When looking at the pictures by Denise Jane of myself and my family back in June, I see memories in the pictures and I’m so glad that Denise Jane was able to capture them. Denise Jane does beautiful work with amazing quality. I recommend her to everyone, from the camera shy kid, to the future model; she works well with everyone, truly a perfect fit.

Marie Durrett  commented on  March 1st, 2014

A consummate professional, you're always at ease and pleasant with the bride and wedding party. At times, that's not an easy task. Everyone of all ages love working with you. I also enjoy your assistants. A very cute one particularly comes to mind. We DO have fun, don't we?

Tara Dean  commented on  July 12th, 2015

"The patience and professionalism that Denise showed during our shoot surpassed anything I had expected. She behaves as if my child was her own and made sure that the shots were on target. She even made him genuinely smile during the pictures, which was a feat in itself!” -Tara Dean mother of Hunter Dean

Virginia Richards  commented on  July 12th, 2015

“I really can’t say enough good things about Denise! She was so patient with us, especially in regard to scheduling. Between the weather and Garrett’s sports schedules, she remained calm and professional through the entire process. Above all she really wanted for Garrett to have photos that he was going to love. Denise went above and beyond making sure that he had locations he wanted and her ability to make Garrett feel comfortable in each situation was what made the experience special. He was included in the entire process from beginning to end. Denise really made sure the photos were catered specifically to Garrett. Denise was able to capture a special time in my sons life and for that I can’t thank her enough.” -Virginia Richard Mother of Garrett Richards

Brooke Simpson  commented on  July 12th, 2015

"I've known Denise Jane for 3 years (maybe more) and I have never had a bad experience working with her. She is kind, caring and really knows how to capture the perfect shot. I have worked with her for pageants and senior pictures and each time I completely fall in love with every shot.” -Brooke Simpson

Julia Sigler  commented on  July 12th, 2015

My senior session with Denise Jane was amazing and memorable. I love how comfortable you can be around her, everyone can see it through the final portraits as well. She will go out of her way to get the perfect picture. I love how my senior portraits were taken at Lake Moomaw, where my family has gone for summer vacation for the past 31 years. I will always have and take these memories with me. -Julia Sigler CHS 2015
