Hey Shawn, we just saw the pics for the first time. You are absolutely amazing!!!!! Truly talented and your shots left us breathless. I cannot wait to receive the cd. We have been very busy and don't have net access yet, I can't wait to share these photos and cannot wait to recommend you to everyone. Have a wonderful weekend and thank you, again and again." ––Zuleyha
