“Lon has created memories for our family that we will forever cherish. He has established himself as a world class photographer by shooting creative images, capturing special moments, and delivering a photographic experience that is second to none”
~The Kohl Family
Lon Monahan has been our favorite photographer for over eight years now. The first photos he took for us were of our newborn son. Our baby cried and fussed the entire session, but somehow Lon managed to take amazing photos. We nearly cried with joy when we saw them! Since then, he has taken annual photos of all of our children. Lon is patient, creative, and very professional. We think of him as a family friend. Our children actually look forward to getting their pictures taken by Lon.

Lon did an amazing job capturing my personality with his creativity while making it a fun experience. He took the time to get to know me and really listened to what I wanted. He gave suggestions and allowed me to give suggestions as well. The pictures turned out to be more than I had hoped for. The hardest thing about the whole experience was trying to decide what to order!
