We cannot say enough about the amazing experience we had during our daughter's new born photo session. Francine welcomed us into her beautiful home and studio and made sure we were all comfortable including our daughter who was only 5 days new. Francine was prepared with SO MANY wonderful ideas for our photo shoot. We mentioned to her that we wanted a shoot with "earthy" tones and she exceeded our expectations. She was so wonderful with our daughter Grace the entire time. She did not make a peep the entire shoot......we called her the "Baby Whisperer".  She has a fantastic ability to take the perfect photo. Francine was there to provide her expertise to ensure we selected the ones that would stand out in our home the best during our viewing session. She is an amazing person and so talented and we have nothing but great things to say about her and her business. We can't wait to go back for Grace's 3-month photo shoot!.

Best photographer ever! It's always so hard narrowing down which pics to purchase because every picture Francine captures is phenomenal!   Such an incredible talent! I highly recommend Francine to everyone! I've referred many, many friends to her and they are just as pleased and amazed!!! In my opinion, she's the best photographer in Pittsburgh!

~ Holly Miller


You will not find a harder working, more dedicated photographer around!  Francine makes sure you're showing the best you possible in your pictures - taking the time to move chins and fix your outfit all while getting smiles from all involved (an especially difficult task with inpatient toddlers!)! We love every picture we get from Francine and I recommend her to everyone!

~ Cassie Mirt


I love working with Francine! She puts you at ease and captures beautiful photos!

~ Chris Crompton


Francine did my senior pictures and they were absolutely gorgeous. Loved every single one of them. The photo shoot was a blast. Fantastic photographer.

~ Katie Kowalewski 


Francine,  you are totally awesome!  You captured Samaya so beautifully!!  I couldn't imagine her senior pictures any more perfect! Thank you for making her photo shoot so much fun! Next... the "Family Portrait!" Lol You come so HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from me!  

~ Lori J. Coury


Francine and her team did an amazing job on our engagement and wedding photos! You will be so impressed with her creativity, plus she's fun and so friendly! 5 stars isn't enough!!

~ Sarah & Dan


Francine, Bob, and Dawn, where to even begin!

These three were absolutely fabulous, I couldn't have imaged better people to e the photographers at our wedding this June! They made everyone feel completely comfortable, and made us laugh and have fun throughout the day. They were extremely flexible, and kept the pace of the wedding going with ease. I never once had to worry. It was such a pleasure to work with all three of them! As if the overall experience wasn't good enough, I quickly received proofs and then copies of all the photos and they were INCREDIBLE! They did such great work, we couldn't possibly be happier.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so wonderful and memorable!

~ Cara and Kyle

From the moment I met Francine, I knew we were making a family friend. She has never made us feel anything but comfortable and special, all while maintaining a professional atmosphere. We have now done four family shoots and been a part of one wedding with TimeSmart Images, and we wouldn't want the skills and creativity of any other photographer! She captures the essence of our family in the truest form. We have ordered a 20x20 collage of each of our family shoots, and they adorn our main hallway in our home. Rarely does a new guest come in to our home and not stop to admire and praise the wonderful work. I highly recommend TimeSmart Images! Worth every moment and penny you will spend.... These are memories captured that will last a lifetime!

~ Liz Winter


Francine,

Thank you so much for making our wedding day even more perfect! The pictures were fantastic. We have received multiple compliments on our thank you notes that had a beautiful picture you took with the city as our back drop. You all did an amazing job with getting the pictures I requested, and paying attention to detail. It has been very difficult narrowing down which pictures to print ! Thank you so much again!

Respectfully,

~ Missy and Jeff Tomer


My husband and I wanted to take the time to thank you for the most beautiful pictures you took of our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding. It was the most beautiful time that you captured perfectly. The day before that wedding my 87 year old (perfectly healthy) mother had fallen and broke her hip and had a stroke and was in the hospital ICU back home 3 hours away at the time of the wedding. My mother developed dementia after the stroke and is now in a nursing home facility. We were able to enjoy the beautiful time and keep our mind off of everything else that was happening. Those pictures will always bring a happy memory that we will treasure forever.

~ Monica and Ron (Wedding: Stefanie & Ronson)


Hi Francine,

The book is wonderful. We love it. You are amazing. I am not sure what else to say, I am speechless.

Thank you - Thank you- Thank you!

~ Billie Jo


Francine,

We are exceptionally happy and pleased with all the photos and really appreciate all the time and effort you, Dawn and Bob put into each photo. We have had many compliments from people who have seen the photos on the website. Everything turned out beautifully and the photos show it.

Thank you for everything you did for us to make Heather and Aaron's day special.

~ Peggy


Dear Francine and Bob,

Eric and I can't thank you enough for the many ways you made us feel special during our engagement shoot. Francine, when you showed up wearing our wedding colors and your boat shoes to go along with our nautical theme, we were so touched and impressed. You really went above and beyond what any other photographer would do! You made it a personal and intimate experience for us. We had so much fun during our shoot because you knew how to make us comfortable. You even got Eric to smile! Also, we were so amazed as we watched you work your creativity. The two of you are a great team. The final photos are of amazing quality and we couldn't ask for anything better. Most importantly, people that know us well say that you were truly able to capture who we are as a couple.

Many Thanks,

~ Lauren and Eric


Francine,

As usual you guys did a wonderful job with the photos you took for Joe and Jen. Being the mother of the groom I thought maybe we would be forgotten about but you took all of the pictures I wanted and more. You took the photographs for my daughter Allison and you will be taken my last sons pictures too.

Thanks again.

~ Jackie


Dear, Francine, Dawn, & Bob,

Sorry this is a little late, but I have been meaning to send you all a note to let you know how much I appreciate you all being part of our special day. Joey and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the wonderful pictures of for our engagement shoot and most importantly, our wedding. We could not have been more pleased with how everything turned out. I honestly can’t stop looking at them! We are so happy that you were available for our wedding date. I am still getting compliments from our guests on how wonderful everyone thought our photographers were! So we wanted to let you know that you were not only a HUGE hit with us, but also with all of our wedding guests! The pictures were absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to actually get them! You three were the perfect addition to our absolutely perfect day. Thank you again for all your wonderful work. I can't wait for another opportunity to use you all again in the future!

~ Jessica and Joe


Francine,

Words cannot describe all of the emotions I feel looking at these pictures. They are absolutely perfect! I cannot believe how old Macie is, and how much she has grown! I have been so blessed to have someone as wonderful as you, who has captured so many great moments in her life. The day of our sitting reminds me truly how magnificent you are as an artist (especially when you have a two and a half year old running through your house and yelling "No I don't want to take pictures"! ). You and Laura were so wonderful to Macie and I, and every one of these pictures are just beautiful! Thank you again for everything, we are so lucky to have such a wonderful photographer in our lives!

Happy Holidays!

~ Sarah and Macie


I just had to say how much I LOVE the standout of Addison!! It is so beautiful!! We have it above our TV in the living room and I can't stop staring at it. :) Thank you so much France!!

~ Erin


Hi Francine,I absolutely love my pictures! the book turned out great. you did an amazing job on it. thank you so much for everything you did!

~ Katie


Francine, Just wanted to say "thank you" for having the patience to take our family picture -- especially with three 2 year old dogs!! I was really worried beforehand, but you made the entire sitting so easy and quick. The pictures are absolutely wonderful. I mentioned that I wanted them taken for our 30th Wedding Anniversary -- a gift to our family. When other occasions come up for photo moments, I will definitely be giving you a call. Thanks Francine!

~ Barb Stoker


Aw Francine, I love them all!!! Its too hard for me to pick and I want every single one of them!! Thank you so much again. I can not explain how wonderful it is to have the absolute best pictures I can have of Macie and I. I will truly cherish them forever!

~ Sarah


I just wanted to tell you that the pictures are wonderful. Thank you so much for making Allison and Brandon’s (and Mine) day so effortless. The pictures in the park are great and thank you for trying your best to get something for them there. The sparkler ones are so great. Its just what she wanted. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much for everything.

~ Jackie


Dawn & Bob-

You did an amazing job with our twin girls! They are 4 months old and the photo shoot that you did was so much fun for us and the girls! You took all the time needed to get some amazing shots! You really captured the beauty in the girls that we see everyday, but up until now, we haven't seen in a photo! You also did a fabulous job in your edits to give us exactly what we want! You are true artists and we appreciate you talents!

~ Katie & Brian


Just had to drop by to tell you how wonderful you are Time Smart Images!!!!! I have been married for a few years now and I cannot begin to explain the joy I feel when I am able to take a few minutes to look through our wedding album! I am forever grateful for the time and effort you put into your work! After all is said and done - the countless hours of planning, the dress, the cake, the colors, the dreaded seating chart - you are left with the memories and the photographs. In my eyes, the memories would not be the same without the BEYOND BEAUTIFUL photographs we have. I am sure I can speak for every bride who has had the pleasure of working with you all - there are not enough ways to thank you! And to Francine - I really don't know what we would have done without you, you were so much more than just our photographer! You made the whole experience blissful! Time Smart Images you exceeded any expectations we had! We love you and wish you all the best!

Sincerely,

~ Ashley Garfold - Still a happy Bride :)


Hi Dawn and Bob,

I just wanted to thank you for Parker's first photo shoot. The pictures came out wonderful. I can't wait to get them, so that we can show them off to everyone. It was a great pleasure to have you capture his first professional photos (and Mylee's). Can't wait to do it again!

Love,

~ Kelly, Wayne, and Parker


Thank you!!! We LOVE THEM! I can't wait to see them all!!  Francie you have an AMAZING talent and we are sooo lucky to have had the honor of you capturing this special time for us! THANK YOU!!!

Dawn and Bob,

I can't imagine anyone else being there to capture our wedding! So far everything looks amazing, I can't wait to see the rest! Thank you so much!

~ Danielle and Joe


Thank you Francine for everything with the job shadow. I learned so much from you. I appreciate all your help. I had a lot of fun at South Park and will remember that day forever!!  I'm so excited to let you know that I was accepted at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

~ Steven


Francine, the photos of Allie, all of them were so amazing. I cannot thank you enough, for such a perfect day. The memories we have from this experience are priceless.... Your work is fantastic, thank you again.All I can say is wow! Francine not only captured my daughter in beautiful pictures but she also was able to capture the true Allie. These photographs are priceless to me... Thank You Francine and Time Smart Images for the fantastic work that you do :)

~ Darlene A.


Francine is a consummate pro. As a professional speaker and trainer, I’ve had several professional shots taken over the years to promote my business. Francine’s is by far the best photo I’ve had taken. She listened to what I wanted. She took plenty of shots to make sure there was a wide range of choices. And her web site made it extremely easy to view and choose the final shot. I highly recommend Francine and TimeSmart Images!

~ PETER BRUENING, Sales & Business Development Coach ... www.sellingpointsgroup.com


Hi Francine! LOVE Savannah's pictures! The outdoor shots are so nice it's hard to choose which ones NOT to get! I think next time I'll have all of her shots outside since she really came to life in the yard! Wish I had brought her fairy wings with me...another day. Thanks so much for everything and I'll see you soon. FANTASTIC PICTURES!

~ Ray and Sonja


Such a wonderful job on my son's wedding photos. Those words don't even do your professionalism justice. I was there that day (of course) and watched you and your partner. True professionals. True artists. You made the day come to life all over again. Some of the shots you got are just priceless! Can't wait to put my book together of my favorite selections.... if I can narrow them down to a hundred :)

~ Linda Moore


Francine,

We would like to thank you and Dawn so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day. The pictures were amazing and we have received tons of complements on them already. You were able to capture every detail of our entire day which is so important for us since it went by so quickly. Thank you so much for all of your hard work as well as helping us through the day with out an ounce of stress. You were so professional and extremely easy to work with that we will definitely be referring you as well as contacting you for any future occasions that we want to remember forever.

Sincerely,

~ Matthew & Jennifer Ray


The wedding was awesome, the day was perfect, the bride was beautiful and it was all captured by a fantastic photographic duo. Bob and Dawn seemed to have as much fun as we did and their pictures reflect the excitement and happiness that day. It is so hard to pick which pictures we want, everyone is raving about the samples and the website. Our memories will be proudly displayed because with the extra touches your team were able to capture we had some fantastic shots before the wedding, during the ceremony and after, and then the reception. They were fun to work with, and were true professionals. Thanks again!!!!

~ Lorraine Campbell VanDyke


Francine & Melissa- Thank you so much for everything. The pictures are absolutely gorgeous. We cannot get over how many pictures there are, and the detail in each picture. Our family and friends have given excellent comments on your work at the wedding, and of course the pictures. All of the pictures are more than we ever imagined and we cannot wait until we order and receive the coffee table book! We will recommend you to everybody we know and keep you in mind for the future.

~ Emily & Jason


Okay Dawn you had me in tears! I'll have to remortgage the house to get everything we want because we want it all! We cannot thank you enough. Five stars doesn't come close. You deserve an infinite number of platinum stars!

~ Laura Conrad


Dawn,You are absolutely amazing! We haven't seen Steph's pictures yet but your eye for color and getting great shots during a shoot is PHENOMENAL!You are so accommodating and indulgent its unbelievable. I'm sure we will have a very hard time when it comes to choosing from such a vast array of great pictures. We will sing your praises to anyone who needs a creative,quality photography artist. THANK YOU!

~ Laura Conrad


I'm not even sure where to begin. I was so nervous on finding a photographer when planning our wedding. I knew the day would fly by and be a big blur, and knew that having a good photographer would make a world of difference. Time Smart Images is excellent!!! Their team captured every moment and now i can look at it just like it was yesterday. Francine and Dawn....you two are amazing. I look at my pictures and watch my videos and laugh and cry of pure happiness. My wedding day was everything and more of what I had dreamed of. Thanks a million for everything. Being able to go to your website and relive our big day is one of the best things ever!!!!

~ Lacey O'Mahoney


I could not have asked for better pictures or a better photographer!!! I knew from the first time I met with Francine that I had nothing to worry about. She was well organized, and the sample pictures were beautiful! I absolutely love my wedding pictures, they are a great way to look back on my wedding day and remember what a great day it truly was. Thanks so much Francine!!!!

~ Amanda McElhaney


Hahahahahaha that's the first thing that came into my mind when i saw the pictures of Mikayla's grad party!! i gotta admit those look great too bad i can't copy them..oh well, but still all of the good times we had, it was great!!!
