~ Nichola and Andrew L. Oakville, ON
"We would like to thank Doxa for giving our family a treasured memory.  Doxa was highly recommended by a friend to do our family portrait. We were very pleased in the finished product.  Doxa is so talented, kind patient and professional!  There were five of us plus our dog.  The dog was in almost every shot and our dog would make a fuss if she wasn't included.  She captured many beautiful shots, so many in fact it was hard to choose.  So we had a coffee table book made. Everyone that looks at this book of family treasures is in awe over the quality of these prints.  Thank you Doxa, you are the best!"
~ Sandra and Denis L. Oakville, ON

"Doxa makes it personal, goes beyond your expectations and captures a moment in time that ensures it will never be forgotten."
~ Cathy and Chris H. Oakville, ON

"Over the past few years Doxa has photographed all of the respective generations of our family and, in doing so, has captured treasured moments for us in her portraits: the gentle wisdom of a grandmother’s glance; the tender radiance of teenage daughter dressed for her prom; the loving embrace of a sister and brother; the gleeful delight of a grandchild’s smile.

The stunning quality of Doxa’s portraits is as much a testament to her as it is to her subjects. In addition to the extensive technical expertise which Doxa brings to her art, she also brings a keen and genuine interest in all of the subjects of her portraiture, photographing each as if they were members of her own family. Doxa takes enormous pleasure in her photography and great pride in sharing the gift of her talent with others through her work. We are fortunate that she does: our family’s moments in time will live on through her portraits."
~ Wendy Mc. Oakville, ON
"Doxa is wonderfully professional while relaxed and friendly.  She not only makes photography effortless and fun, she spends a tremendous amount of time with you beforehand discussing the placement of your pictures as well as picking your favourites to design the ideal album. Doxa is full of great ideas, she takes so many lovely photos and captured our child and family brilliantly. We love looking at our beautiful album with family and friends, remembering so vibrantly all the special moments of our daughter's growth from baby to little girl.  We couldn't recommend Doxa to enough people."
~ Jenn and Ryan C. Burlington, ON

"We highly recommend Doxa. She is knowledgeable, professional and knows how to set the mood to suit the family. Being a family of nine was a challenge Doxa handled with ease. From start to finish she made our experience fun and worthwhile. We will treasure our family portraits for a very long time. Thank you Doxa."
~ Bob and Cathy G. Oakville, ON

"Doxa is a true professional whose keen attention to detail is what makes each portrait so special. Doxa is so kind, patient and wonderful to work with that even my children and dog enjoyed our photos sessions!"
~ Katie and Jacques, Oakville, ON 

"Dear Doxa, You are a magician!  The magic you produced for us in your studio and at the outside location on the trail gives us goose bumps.  We are so happy with the group and individual portraits you have prepared for us.  My childhood memories of family photo shoots are on par with going to the dentist.  However, you have a natural skill which made us each feel special and happy.  We didn't want the session to end. We will treasure these beautiful portraits and thank you for these great memories."
~ Brian and Jane Y. Oakville, ON

"Working with Doxa exceeded all of our expectations and previous experiences!  I could see from her website that she does beautiful work and she is very talented, but the real magic is to see her in action taking the pictures and then to work with her to select the right images and preserve the memories.  Doxa is patient, warm and always brings out the best in her subjects.  She has a real eye for a great shot and a wonderful way with people - my children really responded to her kind and patient ways and you can see that in the portraits.  I love that she captured the spirit and vitality of my family in the photographs - and the compliments we get on the photographs are proof enough that she's able to get something special.  Thank you Doxa for your excellent work - I am looking forward to having you continue to record our family in portraits!"
~ Bindu and Gordon C. Oakville, ON
