” They literally brought tears to my eyes … “

Tintin was so amazing! We came in for my boys 1st birthday pictures and he is usually a camera hog and loves having his picture taken. For whatever reason that day he was just fussy and didn’t want to participate. I honestly wasn’t expecting much and not at all because of Tintin(you all know how 1 year Olds can be) but I got the most beautiful pictures of my baby boy ever. They literally brought tears to my eyes when she emailed them to me ON HIS BIRTHDAY! Thank you so much Tintin for working so hard to get me good photos of my boy.
