We hired Autumn for a family photo session: myself, my husband, our 2 1/2 year ball of fire child, and my parents. She was amazing! Autumn spent two hours with us, taking photos and following the lead of our very opinionated and high energy daughter. She was super patient with our daughter and very fun for all of us to interact with.
A couple of weeks after the shoot, she personally delivered the proofs to us and they are beautiful! I don’t know how she managed it, because my daughter never seemed to hold still for more than 10 seconds, but there are some amazing and very sweet shots of all of us together. This was the first time we used a professional photographer for family shots, but it won’t be the last — and we will definitely be working with Autumn again!
For the past year, Autumn has been capturing the milestones of our son. She is able to engage our son by playing with stuffed animals, making funny sounds, and establishing a rapport with him. Her patience with our son has produced some exceptional pictures. Besides taking striking, timeless images, Autumn is accommodating to her clients. If you’re looking for a professional, humorous, and delightful photographer then Autumn is the photographer for you.
My family loves working with Autumn for our family photographs! She’s captured our growing family several times over the past couple of years and we’ve been very pleased with the results. She has an incredible ability to put her clients (toddlers, infants and camera shy parents) at ease by choosing settings that make us all comfortable and connecting with us all to bring out natural smiles.
I attended a lovely outdoor wedding last week that Autumn photographed. I was mesmerized watching her work. She had an uncanny way of disappearing in the crowd, you hardly knew she was there. All the while she never stopped smiling…..in a complete state of joy as she quietly and expertly shot her photos. Never stressed or fumbling with gear, just gleefully doing her job and completely dialed into the natural setting, catching the sunset at just the right moment. I can’t wait to see the photos because, no doubt, this woman loves what she does….just pure love seems to go into each click of her lens. Disclaimer: yes she’s a friend and former neighbor, but this is the first time I got to watch her work. I was moved and inspired. We should all love what we do as much as Autumn Fuentes does ❤️
I give a full and enthusiastic recommendation for Through Autumn’s Lens. In October 2013, Autumn took our family photos. We have a two year old son and I was expecting our second child in early November. From conception to production, working with Autumn was pure fun and ease. In coming up with a photo location and shot ideas, Autumn was receptive to our thoughts and desires for the images. We wanted to look like ourselves, capturing a moment in time rather than a posed production. Autumn made some excellent suggestions – go to our favorite place and have fun! So we shot our photos at our favorite nearby beach. During the shoot, Autumn made my husband and I, both camera shy, feel very comfortable. Best of all, she made the experience fun for our toddler. As a result, we have some of the best pictures I could ever imagine! We look so relaxed and happy. Post production was also a joy. Autumn combed through hundreds of photos and selected the best images then asked if we had any feedback or changes to make. She gave us a disc of the final photos and created a password protected online link to share our pictures. Given this experience, I give my highest recommendation for Autumn – five stars!
Autumn shoots with love and captures beauty. “On set” she brings a warm, easy way; a palpable joy in her work; and a talent both for being an unobtrusive documentarian and the “perfect kid fluffer”, as we jokingly dubbed her. I’ve worked with her twice thus far – to shoot PR pix for a kids yoga class and for our annual family portraits – and have loved the results each time
The pictures made me misty eyed because they are so lovely. Lily asked me why I was all teary and before I could say anything she said, “I know, because the pictures are so beautiful!”
We loved the prints and disk that we purchased! I immediately framed one of the 8x10s, and have been enjoying it since it arrived. And the grandparents have enjoyed viewing it digitally, through e-mail. Thank you!
Your pictures are by far the best ones I’ve seen. You’re very talented.
The prints arrived today and they are beautiful! Thank you for making it a day that we will never forget with your wonderful photos.
Thank you! I will always cherish your artwork and recommend you for many years to come.
Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your eye for catching the fleeting beauty that we so often miss or just barely see. You have trained yourself to look into and beyond what the average person sees and a talent to grasp the emotion surrounding it.
Your perspective is so attractive and astounding! I viewed your web site and came away amazed. You see a side of your subjects and capture what would otherwise be unnoticed or lost within that one moment when light or movement changes.
You captured Cody’s soul. I’ve had other professional portraits done of him, but no one has gotten such good shots. The collage is perfect. I’ll spread the word about your talent.
Thanks so much for the print of Michelle and ‘Legend’, it is beautiful and truly captures the connection between Michelle and her horse. We will treasure it always.
Your studio photography is outstanding. The lighting, layout and overall presentation in each photo is excellent.
Thank you for your information. I will bring it to my meeting tonight. Already I’ve talked to a few people who are interested and they haven’t even seen your stunning work yet!
I wanted to let you know that I got the proofs and they are absolutely beautiful. There are so many good shots. You did an excellent job, he is so cute! I just wanted to let you know that I got them and I’m really, really pleased.
Ms. Fuentes developed pieces of investigative and editorial journalism – which included photographic assignments – on the topics of tourism and sociology. Autumn also showed a unique creative talent, which allowed her to produce elegant and agile pieces where her humor and the presentation of her ideas and original concepts were always present.
