As a child there were numerous pictures of great grandparents at the prime of their youth in the home of Trisha Shaffer. From a very young age she had an appreciation for the Art of photography and the ability to capture a moment in time. Being able to look at a picture is like peering into a window from the past. Creating heirlooms for her clients is what Trisha loves most about Photography.
