References for Admire Studios

Our clients are thrilled with the photography style and service we offer. But we’ll let them say it.

“Twyla is an amazing photographer who is extremely personable and has an eye for stunning nature backdrops and fresh, sincere poses. Twyla is very flexible in both her availability and new/different ideas for photo sessions. She posses a high level of professionalism and definitely knows how to handle a large crowd. We really enjoyed her, as both my husband and I are somewhat awkward in front of the camera.

We were both a bit worried about photos seeing as we are both not great in front of the camera and have had the issue of pushy people on both sides. Not only was Twyla able to relax us enough to get great pictures, but she was also able to help us tap into our emotions to get some absolute stunners.

The high level of expertise (and fantastic availability) that is offered by Admire Studios makes the prices very, very reasonable. I would absolutely recommend Twyla and Admire Studios to anyone looking for an awesome photographer!

Twyla took our first family pictures. My son was only 4 months old at the time and was a little tired and grumpy that day, I was dissapointed in his mood because it was harder to get him in poses I wanted him to be in. Twyla got the shots of him that she could, and also got great shots of my husband and I while we were letting him rest a little. We got the shots back and I was so happy with what Twyla did and with what she got of my son espesially in what kind of mood he was in! She edited all the images, photoshopped them and also turned each one into colour, sepia and black and white. She really took her time and did a fabulous job on the end result of the photos. Thanks Twyla! - The Stahls

“Twyla is amazing to work with, and I have gotten nothing but compliments on the photos she has done for us. Her photos are able to take something special and make it even more extraordinary.”  - Lindsay Gaudet

“Michael and I had Twyla to take both our engagement and wedding photos.  [Later, maternity shots as well.] Despite the chilly and cloudy days that both of those days were, the pictures turned out great and displayed the pure joy we have in being together.  Our experiences with Twyla have been great!  We were so comfortable and really relaxed during our photo shoots with her!  Twyla incorporated all our ideas and was very friendly, easy going, and professional.  She was really prepared for her role, and before our wedding even checked out our planned photo shoot location and came up with a backup locations when it was unexpectedly closed for construction!

We were able to enjoy the events of our wedding day without worrying about whether or not we would have it all captured in our photos, because we knew from experience that Twyla does a great job!  Even the shoots with our families and wedding party went smoothly and everyone looks great in the pictures!  Twyla captured the joy and excitement we had in our engagement and on our wedding day.  The pictures look awesome and we love sharing our engagement pictures and wedding album with our family and friends. We recommend Admire Studios!

 Creativity is something I was really looking for in a photographer and Twyla really personified that. She followed us up bridges and over fences, adding her own ideas and twists and I was incredibly happy with every wedding picture we got back! We had her for a whole day-our entire wedding, and I definitely don’t regret that decision because not a single once in a lifetime moment was missed. It was a long day for us and absolutely a long day for her as well but she kept smiling and snapping away. I really appreciated that smile, especially towards the end of our photo shoot when I may have been a bit antsy to be done and off to our honeymoon… Twyla completely changed her editing style for me, after I showed her what I preferred, even though it wasn’t her preferred editing style and she totally nailed it! The pictures were back WAY quicker than I’ve seen with other friend’s wedding photos. I wouldn’t have picked anyone else to record the most important day of my life (my WEDDING); Twyla was FANTASTIC!! – Chantal and David


Lots more where that came from…

We were very impressed with how Twyla managed to engage our two young children during the photo shoot. She intuitively understood our family’s personality, and somehow managed to capture it in photos.  I was very impressed by the quick production time and overall professionalism from beginning to end. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Twyla, and look forward to our next session together!” – Robertson Family

We love working with Twyla! Each time it feels like she knows the kind of picture we are looking for without even having to ask, and is able to capture it to have as a wonderful keepsake. She definitely has a way with kids and makes getting family photos taken fun, not stressful! We’re so thankful for getting such great pictures for our little girl’s first birthday, and we’re looking forward to the next time! -Epps

Twyla came to our house for the photo shoot. She was very comfortable working with our 1-year-old son and was flexible in shooting his birthday party. She was also able to tailor photographs to match previous prints that we had of our son at 6 months. It was a nice experience. She is a lovely person. -Bugslag Family

Yep, Even More Great Reviews!

“Thank you SO much for all the gorgeous photos of my wedding day! I will treasure them forever. It was truly wonderful to have you there to capture my special day. Thank you for all your hard work and expertise…”

“The photos 
and the experience were awesome. I’ve already been recommending Twyla to all the brides-to-be that 
I know! Twyla did a great job of 
keeping us calm, even in emergencies! 

We really wanted lots of pictures, and every time 
I looked around, 
Twyla was snapping.”
- Catherine

“What a blast! We had so much fun having our engagement photos taken. Twyla works efficiently and creatively.  I now have a beautiful book that captures the fun we had that afternoon – a great way to portray the joy we had being engaged! The photos are great, and I especially love the black and white. She had a set of great shots already planned but was also very accommodating for any other ideas we had.” -Camille and Steven

“The whole photo process went very smoothly. Being able to feel relaxed on our wedding day was very important to us, and Twyla definitely made that possible. I have a bit of a complicated family situation and Twyla handled it wonderfully. One thing I appreciated was Twyla’s ability to improvise. There were pictures that different family members wanted and she was willing to accommodate them without hesitation. She was able to take their ideas and turn it into some amazing photos. I’m sure that everyone left the park satisfied that their requests were met. Russel and I can be very spontaneous and random, and Twyla was able to capture that in the photos. She caught our funny faces, awkward poses, and our use of props and worked with them to get some great shots. And when we said “Lets go to A&W!” she was totally on board. Nothing makes a picture like confetti guns and root beer…”-Alex and Russel

“From previous experience I would most definitely recommend
 a solid professional like Twyla. 

She allows things to run their course throughout a shoot while 
still giving input on how to 
make the photos come alive.” - Elena

And Even More: For Seven Deadly Sins Boudoir

“Seven Deadly Sins is the BEST photographer out there. Twyla is extremely professional, fun to work with, and her work is spectacular! I’m so happy with my pictures, I would recommend her to anyone for any style of photography! Twyla is spectacular to work with. I have always had self-confidence issues, but she was able to make me feel comfortable and at ease right from the moment I walked in. The pictures turned out wonderful! I love looking at them now simply because they make me feel so good about myself. Twyla Lapointe is quite the genius with a camera.”

I’ve never had more fun taking pictures. I usually hate to be behind the camera, but it was so comfortable. My fiancé loved the pictures, and especially loved the video slideshow. In her words, “She brought out a fun-loving sexy side that I hadn’t seen with all those fantastic poses.”

“***** – I got my first Boudoir shoot done with Seven Deadly Sins! It was so much fun, and very professional! My pictures turned out amazing! Twyla is a great photographer, and I definitely recommend her for your photo shoot!” - Heather
