"I know I'd never go anywhere else. I recommend Carla all the time, and I am confident doing so. She is a perfectionist with capturing the right moment. Her humor keeps you smiling, so you don't have to plaster a fake one on. She actually makes it fun to have your pictures taken." - Lady Di, IL

"Photography is an Art and Carla has got it down. It takes more than a point and shoot to be a photographer, it takes time, an artistic eye and raw talent! Not only does she encompass these qualities, she also has a great sense of what a person is really looking for through the eye of a lens. She takes her time to find just the right shot without taking too much time and wasting daylight. She makes you feel like YOU are special and she is just lucky enough to get to photograph you! If you are looking for someone who will capture beautiful memories on camera as well as make you laugh-then Jane Ivy is the one for you! I was nervous that I would not really know what to do or how to pose but Carla has an eye for those great KODAK moments and is very easy going and down to earth, Carla is an amazing photographer, she has all the qualifications and meets all the criteria anyone can ask for as she did for my wedding. Her packages are great, she can work with different locations, the quality of her work and eye for color is amazing. I loved her professionalism, customer service and on top of that it is so easy to open up to her and be very comfortable. Highly highly recommended. Thank you again Carla for everything and good luck!" - Jay and Brooke, IL

"Carla is such an amazing photographer, and she helped me realize one of my passions. Before Jane Ivy Photography started, I had never taken professional pictures of myself. When Carla asked me to come get pictures taken to help her advertise, I was thrilled to help! At first, I was nervous I was going to disappoint Carla, but she was so patient and understanding, and everything felt so comfortable. She took her time to make me feel comfortable and she helped steer me in the right direction. I've done three different photo shoots with Jane Ivy, and I absolutely love them! Modeling is a huge part of my life because of her, and I never would've started in modeling if it wasn't for her. All of my girlfriends ask where I get my pictures taken, and I'm proud to say Jane Ivy!" - Bobbie, IL

We will recommend Jane Ivy to anyone interested in getting pictures done and we can't wait to come back for more!" - Debbie, IL

I've recommended her to several other people since then." - Corresha, IL
