"We would like to say how much we enjoy when Penny comes to our school to take pictures.  She is so fun and has a very pleasant way about her. We are a large school and Penny takes great care in making sure every child has her full attention.  She is professional and hard working, we really like working with Penny."

First United Methodist Preschool

We had a great picture day today.
 All students  agreed to take a picture. Our photographer, Penny is super awesome. She was done before lunch and before the dance class, so kids schedule was not disrupted. Everyone smiled. She was able to get the most precious expressions.  
 Thank you to all parents for your cooperation and to the teachers for making this "unusual" day very smooth and organized.

Marina, Director

 Jolene-La Mesa


"Couldn't be happier, never get all 3 of my kids to smile at the same time, not until now, thanks so much"


 " I just got my daughter's photo proofs and they are beautiful...we had been practicing her "beautiful smile" a few days before, and it definitely wasn't the beautiful smile you coaxed out of her!"

Dear Penny,

I'm writing this email to inform you how much your customer service, and quality of work, absolutely exceeded any expectations I might have had. I was so ecstatic to open my children's pictures from preschool to not only find their individual pictures, but poses of them together as well. I don't know of any other company that would do that without a parent requesting that.

I must also mention that there was an error I had noticed when I received the class picture. No fault of CaliKids Photography, but staff at the preschool had overlooked
that one of my two children was not pictured. I had reached out to Penny and asked her if there was a way to fix the mistake and reprint a copy for us. Within a week, the class picture was corrected, and not only did she print me an additional copy, she went above and beyond to reprint several copies for the children who had received the original one. She had this fixed and delivered within a week. I was astonished at how kind, genuine, and prompt she was to assure the situation was taken care of.

I can't rave enough about Penny, or her business. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with this company in the future.
