Working with Deb was nothing but a pleasure! Her work is simply beautiful. She is flexible, honest, and really aims to please! We will always cherish the stunning pictures she took of our baby Ella down by the ocean in East Hampton.

Deb Kalas has artistically captured the spirit of our daughter throughout her three years of life. Behind the lens, Deb has documented her changes in looks and personality (and managed lately to keep up with an always-on-the-run toddler!) Everyone advises me and my husband to savor each moment with our child, given the fleetingness of childhood. But each photograph we have of Deb’s is a gift to relive, as it contains the completeness of a moment – the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual.
