Kelly and I want to thank you for exceeding all of our expectations, and capturing this wonderful moment in time for our family. As proud, first-time parents - we have taken several million photos of our daughter. But, it’s your shots that have graced our walls, grandparents’ walls, and this year’s Christmas cards. Each shot shows a different aspect of her lively attitude and playful spirit. She doesn’t smile easily, and she doesn’t always cooperate; but your patience and ability to bring out her camera-friendly attitude is what separates your photos from the rest. Forget the fact that you were able to remove the terrible gash on her chin via Photoshop… catching her reaction to the plane flying overhead was priceless (definitely a favorite in our house). We are done wasting money on big-box retailers, and photographers with limited people skills. You’re our man going forward, and I would recommend your services at the drop of a hat. Keep up the great work!

Matthew took Quinn's newborn photos and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. First, it was great being a new mother and having him come to the house rather than pack up everything and go somewhere. I don't know how I would have handled that so early on. Prior to the shoot, Matthew gave us tips to prepare us for our session. I thought it was incredibly helpful and when we got going he was very good at working with us and Quinn to position us for great shots. Matthew is customer focused and made sure that I was happy with the shots he took and when I asked him for a couple more he happily obliged. His talent and passion came through during the shoot and the result was our amazing photos. We have gotten so many compliments on our pictures, our daughter looks just beautiful and we have priceless pictures to always remember our baby girl. We will definitely use Matthew Crowley Photography again for all of our family pictures.

Matthew Crowley Photography is awesome! I hired Matthew to take all the must-have photos of my new baby daughter from birth through 1 year of age. He is very professional and comes prepared with all the equipment needed. He used different techniques and toys to try to get my daughter to smile for the photos. He also had quite a few suggestions for poses of awesome family photos of my husband, daughter and myself. Very quick turnaround; great prices too! Overall, I'm super impressed with all our baby's photos and I would highly recommend Matthew Crowley Photography to anyone in need of professional photography!

While looking for someone to take family pictures, my husband and I came across Matthew Crowley at a local dog rescue benefit event taking pictures of families that included kids and dogs. Having 4 kids and 3 dogs, we felt confident that Matthew could handle our requests after watching him for hours volunteer his time. We booked Matthew and eagerly awaited the photo shoot. Matthew arrived on time and set up went quickly.
With 4 kids, I had a vast array of ideas to make each child's picture reflect their individuality. Matthew handled the children and pets wonderfully during the entire shoot and the proof truly is in the pictures. Our 2 1/2 yr old has not had a professional picture taken of her since she was 6 months old. She had two breakdowns during the shoot, and Matthew pulled a trick out of his bag each time and saved the moment! It made giving the photos of the kids as Christmas presents very special.
Another important part of using Matthew was his respect for our privacy. My husband and I do not feel comfortable posting information about our children on the internet and Matthew understood our request not to publish all the amazing pictures he took. I sincerely appreciate his respect of our wishes and it is a shame for the public because some of the most amazing pictures were taken. He captured the unconditional love between my daughter and her beloved dog of 12 years. My son desperately wanted to wear his Captain America costume, and Matthew's backgrounds and special effects make his pictures look like they are straight from the WWII era. My other daughter looks like she is walking in downtown Paris and my toddler has some of the biggest, most genuine smiles that have ever been captured!
I am looking forward to the next photo session with Matthew when we can do some shots outside. The kids are even excited and have already thrown out some ideas for their individual pictures! I recommend him to everyone I have talked to because I know they will be happy with the finished product. We can't help but smile every time we pass the frames. Matthew Crowley's photographs have awed us completely as well as those who have seen them. We used them on our Christmas cards and have never had such a response before these! Our family and friends love the pictures and remark how each one really does reflect that child's personailty and interests!
Thank you, Matthew, for the gift that will last even as our children grow!!
