"I can't say enough wonderful things about Frances!!! She took amazing pics for my family! I am so impressed by what she was able to capture and so grateful for some of the most beautiful pics taken of my children. She worked so well with all of my children and took gorgeous breastfeeding and babywearing pictures of me and my daughters. I look forward to having her take more pictures of us!! Thank you!!!"

"This was our first homecoming as a family so I wanted it to be special and captured forever. The emotion and love that Francescaptures in the photographs she takes is so raw and beautiful; I needed that so I called her up and she was able to accommodate the ever-changing arrival times(4 times in the last week!). With less than 12 hour notice Frances was able to be there for my family. Not a word on how to pose, when to smile, or where to adjust myself was uttered. She just moved around us and captured some of my most cherished memories. Thank you so muchFrances! I hope that we can continue to use your amazing talent throughout our stay in California!"

"Frances is beyond amazing. My original photographer had to back out the day before my husbands homecoming due to a family emergency and Frances stepped up on very short notice. The day of the homecoming I got lost (a lot) and she walked out of the pier to find me. She went above and beyond her "duties" as our photographer. She helped with my 2 girls as well while we waited for Mark. My photos are stunning and I can't even look at them without crying. The moments she captured are once in a life time and now I have an amazing collection of photos to remember it with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! AMAZING!"

"Frances has an amazing eye for photography. Naturally talented. She did my daughters 1st birthday smash cake and family babywearing pictures for us. I am so pleased with how all the pictures came out, & the day itself was super fun. I lool forward to Frances being able to capture more of my family's special moments!!"

"I cannot think of a thing about working with Frances that I did not like. Even before our shoot she went above and beyond to schedule a time, location, etc. She was on time to the shoot even though I was running late, and was understanding about it. Her work really does speak for itself; her eye for lighting is fantastic and the way she frames her shots is breathtaking. She was so patient with my almost two year old daughter and did not mind a quick outfit change. Her photos perfectly captured my daughter's personality and I will cherish the little piece of her childhood that Frances was able to put on film. Her prices are very affordable and, in my opinion, too low for the quality experience that my family and I received. Thank you again, Frances. It was truly a pleasure."

I have been so impressed not only with every photo we've gotten from her but also by every time we've ever worked with her. She's professional yet constantly friendly and upbeat.

"Frances Bast takes absolutely stunning photos! She has the ability to capture beautiful moments in any situation, from seemingly mundane everyday activities to amazing portraitures and landscapes. I've never seen a photo of hers I haven't loved! I would highly recommend this photographer for any of your photography needs."

"Frances has an incredible eye, fabulous personality, and an uncanny ability to capture special moments without you knowing she was there. She has such a wonderful energy about her that makes everyone instantly comfortable and natural which was awesome for a camera shy person like me! I highly recommend her for any occasion!"
- Ruth Yu Rodgers
"Frances is awesome!! She is great with baby and mamma. She did my newborns first Christmas photos and they turned out so wonderfully! I was super stressed on picture day since I just had my first baby and had not quite figured out how to run my home smoothly. She showed up with her smile and great personality and all my stresses were gone. She captured some amazing pictures of my daughter which cant be easy when you are dealing with a newborn."
- Natalie Dighera
"I am so glad that I was able to have Frances capture the birth of my third baby. It was such an intimate moment and she did a wonderful job capturing it. She was very professional and I hardly even knew she was there taking photos. She also took amazing newborns and family photos. She was very patient with my two older children and captured some great family moments. I couldn't be happier with both sets of pictures. We have found our family photographer."
- Ashley Babcock
"We were so glad that Frances was there to capture our son's baptism. The pictures were wonderful, she was super patient with my crazy kidlets during the family portraits and now this special day is preserved for our family heart emoticon She even helped adjust my sling during Mass so i could be comfy! Would definitely use her again."
- Lina M. G. Martin
"We are so happy with our family portraits done by Frances. She took the time to accommodate both my toddler, my newborn, and even our ridiculous dog. She was even able to get me a photo turnaround fast enough for my Christmas cards when the photos were done in November. Thank you so much!"
