“I had the pleasure of meeting this pair of twins because their mom registered them online. We met up for their session at Riverdale East Park, which the frequent quite often. Callum & Quinn are some of the nicest kids I’ve ever met. So gentle and intelligent, and excitingly curious about things. They both do improv classes and have a knack for performing. Some of their talent was visibly shown in their portraits.” – Camila G
