Testimonials from Happy Clients

Here are some client testimonials dating from 2011 to this year.

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rebecca. She is warm, professional, talented, well-organized, detail-oriented, and deeply cares about the quality of her work. I needed a headshot for a book I wrote and after researching several photographers I knew she was the one for me.

She made the experience comfortable and easy for me, from beginning to end. The helpful prep information she sent ahead of time made it so that I’d have everything I needed to know for the shoot. She is more than a photographer, she’s an artist who brings out the best in her clients. She took many shots from multiple angles, while always being attentive to making sure I looked my best. I also appreciated what a great listener she is. I wanted a natural and warm look, which is exactly what she gave me. Her caring and personal attention made me feel relaxed and comfortable. 

She is also very responsive not just with getting the final headshot to me but also with our email correspondence along the way. I had several questions and she quickly and patiently answered all of them.

I definitely recommend Rebecca! I’ll be a repeat customer because the next time I need a photographer she is the one I’ll go to.” Heather, 2022

“Rebecca did a great job! Hair and makeup were done well and per request (professional, minimal look) and quickly. She took photos quickly, had great ideas for the poses, etc. Made the experience quick, easy, and fun! And the photos were amazing. Thanks, Rebecca” Meghan, Pasadena, 2022

“Rebecca is wonderful! I can’t say enough good things about her. I recently booked a session because I needed professional portraits done for my two separate careers. These careers are quite different from each other, so I needed portraits that each had its own distinct vibe. Rebecca really listned to me and understood what I was hoping for, and she was a huge help in giving me wardrobe guidance and in helping me relax for the shoot. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results, and I’ve gotten so many compliments on the new portraits. I give Rebecca the highest possible recommendations!” Miranda, Pasadena, 2022

“I love my headshot taken by Rebecca Little Photography! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a headshot or even glamour shots. She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable with each pose. She is detailed-oriented and kept reminding me how she planned to use photoshop to remove each blemish that I didn’t want to show on my face. Additionally, Rebecca has a great eye and knew how to position my body for the best shot. I’ve already received several compliments from professionals who were impressed by her work. She is a true professional. Thanks again, Rebecca!” Rochelle, Pasadena, 2021

“I wanted to capture my hair as it transitions to grey. I’m an artist and wanted something different from a traditional headshot – something soulful. My portraits were beautiful and the day was fun and relaxing. She made everything super easy.” Kathryn, El Segungo, 2021

“I needed professional photos for my business website and social media. I have never taken the time before to have someone professionally style my hair, do my makeup just for photographs. It ended up feeling like a luxury. Funny enough, on my way to the photo session, I felt a bit overwhelmed and even a bit insecure. It was a vulnerable feeling. Upon my arrival, I met with Rebecca and shared how I was feeling and she normalized it for me. I think as women, we so often take care of others and it can be hard when we put the spotlight on ourselves. I loved my photos and am very happy with the outcome..” Stacey, 2021

“Rebecca provided a wonderful experience for our mother/daughter photoshoot! From start to finish, she was helpful, thoughtful and the actual shoot was a great experience. Her team is kind and professional and the quality of the end product is outstanding!” Octavia, South Pasadena, 2017

“Rebecca Little took a professional portrait of me, as well as mother-daughter photos with my daughter, Octavia. The process was comfortable, flexible, and fun at her studio, with talented make-up and hair professionals for prep, as part of the sitting. Prior to the photoshoot, Rebecca offered suggestions about clothing and grooming, but she also has clothing available at the studio. During the photoshoot, Rebecca listens, and then makes suggestions and guides her subjects without dictating.

She moves through different poses and backdrops smoothly and quickly. Rebecca is able to allow her subjects to relax so that she brings out the inner person in her photos. Her goal is to let the client express his or her true self or any aspect of one’s self. After working her “magic,” the resulting photos were stunning, far beyond our hopes and expectations.

We are so happy with the entire experience and very grateful to have found Rebecca to take our photos, at a milestone time in our lives. The reactions from colleagues, friends, and family have been overwhelmingly positive. Octavia and I highly recommend Rebecca to capture you for many different purposes and/or your family, for all occasions.” Christine Sisley, South Pasadena, 2017

“I recently had a portrait session with Rebecca Little. I was a little apprehensive as I was unsure what to expect, but Rebecca walked me through the entire process, patiently answering my many questions and offering great tips on preparing as well as recommendations for selecting outfits to wear. From the moment I walked into Rebecca’s studio, I was immediately put at ease. Her hair and makeup team did a wonderful job getting me camera ready and they made me feel like a million bucks! Rebecca has a natural ability of making you feel relaxed and confident as she photographs you. She has a laid back approach while at the same time expressing enthusiasm. Her unique perspective and talent is evident in the amazing results. From beginning to end, this was a very enjoyable experience and I can’t recommend it highly enough! Thank you, Rebecca Little, for the beautiful portraits you created for me, I absolutely love them!” Lisa Bloom, 2016

Beautiful photos for Mothers Day glamour photos for mom Rebecca Little Photography Pasadena CA

“For Mother’s Day my sister and I decided to get our photos taken professionally with our mom as a gift to her. We spent the day getting dolled up and had an amazing time with Rebecca. Her studio is so lovely and inviting, and she just makes you feel comfortable and at east in her home. You can tell Rebecca is a true artist with an eye for beauty and impeccable attention to detail. The three of us have not taken any photos together in a long time and never by a professional photographer so none of us knew what to expect. However Rebecca never let us feel awkward or intimidated by the process. She held our hand through every step of the process from the moment the session was booked till receiving the final images. Rebecca is professional, calming and just a joy be to be around. It was truly an amazing experience for the three of us and it will forever be a treasured memory in our hearts. Thank you Rebecca! And just to state the obvious, the photos came out beautifully!” Cathy Shih, Alhambra

“I decided to get portraits taken, really, because I saw the pictures on her website. (My husband even called her an artist after seeing her site) In the past I’ve always shot pics for headshot, Christmas cards, or marketing purposes. This is the first time I took pictures just because. Figuring I could use another headshot, why not?
First off, Rebecca does a thorough part-info, part-interview before anything. Music you like to hear, food to eat, favorite colors, and she recommends what to bring. Due to a busy life, I got prepared the night before, didn’t sleep enough, didn’t lose those couple of pounds of H20 and I was annoyed at myself.
As soon as I showed up, her makeup artist, Cathy, (aka The Magician) immediately cleaned the sleep outta my eyes and got to work. Rebecca lovingly got me coffee, had nuts, snacks, biscotti ~ felt like I was on a film set.
Next Bri, another talented young lady, prepared to transform my bed head into a sophisticated do. During the shoot I decided to hand over the reins and let Rebecca run the show. I was in good hands. When the shot worked, she let you know, and if it didn’t, she took the time necessary to make it the best. Best lighting, angle, props, look ~ and I had a blast!
Great music playing and getting to play dress up. She had me wear fabrics and textures, try jewelry and skirts. Fun, fun, fun! Out of this shoot, I got two professional headshots, a wedding anniversary gift, and a Father’s Day gift too. Thank you Rebecca Little Photography!
If you are looking for care, professionalism, customization, and lotsa fun? Then Rebecca will by a joy to work with for you, your family, staff and friends.” Marcela Hawk, South Pasadena

“Being in front of the camera can be a scary thing. Especially if you’re anything like me and get super awkward anytime a camera comes out. Being photographed by rebecca was not like that at all. Getting your makeup done is one of the best things ever! i just felt super confident and i was totally feeling the way i looked. Once i got in front of the camera it was smooth sailing from there. She (Rebecca) gives direction well and keeps it simple and easy to replicate. i had an awesome time during our session and my photos came out freaking rad!!” Bri Orozco, Rancho Cucamonga

“I have nothing but good things to say about our experience with Rebecca! I was initially hesitant to book Rebecca because of the prices, but I am SO glad we did!! First of all, her work speaks for itself. She does such a great job at catching the moment and just the feeling of the moment. She made our family feel at ease, never made us feel rushed, and made sure to get every shot we wanted. And to top it off, her customer service is above and beyond! I really can’t say enough good things about our experience!! Thanks Rebecca!!”

Rave reviews and testimonials and thumbs up for Rebecca Little Photography Pasadena CA from Sierra Madre family

“We had Rebecca take our family photos, and I was happy we did. We have a 4 month old and a 2 year old, and they are not the best little models. Rebecca created a calm environment, and our pictures benefited from it. She is a true professional and we could not be happier with the end product”.

A. Esfahani, Ranchos Palos Verdes – 2015 (family portraits)

Rave reviews and testimonials for Rebecca Little Photography Pasadena CA

“Our family session with Rebecca was relaxed and fun, and that’s saying a LOT with two teenagers! And the images speak for themselves. She captured the best of us, and we will treasure these photos forever! The only problem was choosing between all of the great shots…what a nice problem to have!”

Karen Rice, Sierra Madre – 2015 (family portraits)


“Rebecca did my photos with my daughter, it was for father’s day gift. I was nervous because i didnt think I would get my photos in time because i had decided to do this 2 weeks before. She was able to have them to me just in time for me to print one out and framed. She was also so patient with my daughter. Our session was brief, which was great for her being so active and working around her nap time. I LOVED my photos and I would definitely recommend Rebecca for family shoots ;)”

Myline Cabico, Rancho Cucamonga – 2015 (mother-daughter portraits)


“The pictures that you took are so unique and authentic it amazes me. When I saw the video for the first time, I was so touched I cried. You had managed to see all the different personalities of our crazy family and put that on film and I will forever be grateful to you.

Everyone that has seen the album is blown away and then they see the “Vanity Fair” shot and they are speechless!

It takes a truly talented person to be able to capture the essence of a person…in our case a family on camera that they have only met a few minutes ago…yet that is what you were able to do with our entire family…all 14 of us at Tom and my 50th Wedding Celebration.”

“My coffee table book is so beautiful I had to buy a coffee table!

Every time I look at the picture of my best friend Veronica roasting me at my 50th Birthday Party and me laughing in the foreground, I laugh all over again, as if it were the first time I heard the story.

Capturing the images at my 50th birthday party was one of the smartest thing I did. Having a party and inviting my favorite people was definitely the smartest.”

“Rebecca worked her magic again! We had some crazy ideas for our photo session (including driving out to a location and even hiking up to the top of a fountain), and Rebecca was up for the adventure! I love so many of the photos, I had a hard time narrowing down what I wanted (so I didn’t). She captures the essence of each of us in the photos – the impishness of my youngest, the drama of my middle, and the sweetness of my oldest. We were able to give several photos away as gifts for Christmas, and everyone loves the pictures! Thanks so much, Rebecca, for another great bunch of wonderful memories of my family.”

“Rebecca works magic behind the lens; she creates still images that tell a story. When I look at photos Rebecca has taken of me and my family, I’m immediately transported to that time and space again and the essence of the moment. Rebecca’s photos are far from posed – they’re captured moments that speak to you, draw you in, move you; art in its purest form.”

“When I needed a headshot for my business website, I knew I wanted Rebecca to take it. We had done family portraits with her a while back, and they were wonderful. Rebecca has a way of capturing the essence of a person in her photographs, and that was what I needed for my professional photos. I’ve gotten many compliments on the pictures she took, and I am grateful that she captured my professional side so well.”
Kim Tso, Temple City ~ January 2013

“Every time I see the photographs you took of our family – on my phone, on the wall in our home, on our computer screensaver, wherever they turn up – I can’t help smiling. They make me feel, I don’t know any other way to put it, joyful. They completely capture our family and how we are together, and give me the rare chance to sit back and enjoy seeing all of us together.

I’ve had several people stop me in the hall at school to tell me how much they loved our Christmas card and to ask about who took the photographs. My parents love it when I have you take our photos because they know they’ll be getting calendars to put up in their home. I even made decks of playing cards this year with the kids’ photos…another big hit. Honestly, I love what you do for us, the way you capture us at a time in our life. What an incredible investment for our family and what an amazing gift you have of capturing people with your camera!

Thank you!”

“Love, love, love them!
I gave Matt the photographs you took of Molly and Katie for his Christmas gift. He had tears in his eyes when he saw them! They’re now hanging in our living room where we can see them every day.
We are soooo lucky to have these forever.”

“Oh. My. God. I Love, Love, Love our family photos.
We just moved into a new home and I have the perfect spot to display them. When I look at the photos of my girls it brings tears to my eyes, they are growing up so fast and you captured their pure beauty at this moment in time!! I will cherish these pictures always, and we all really enjoyed and appreciate you spending the day with us and capturing such wonderful photographs. Honestly, words cannot describe how much I love them and how grateful I am to have them.
Thank You Rebecca, you are Truly Talented!!”

Spending the afternoon with you enjoying the beautiful surroundings and light was really a pleasure. We love our family portraits! Thank you for capturing the gorgeous afternoon light and the moments in time that are so fleeting. Your work is truly special.”

“thanks, rebecca! you worked your magic once again … i love them!
thank you for trekking out there with us … the pics were worth it.”

“I loved having Rebecca take my photographs! It wasn’t boring at all. She’s not like my mom – my mom says ‘Smile! No, not like that,’ and ‘Stand like this, move to the right, now smile again’. Rebecca made it fun – we basically just walked around and talked. I’d do it again!”
Jocelyn Borys, Pasadena – 2013 (1st Portrait Session)

“My family has had four photography sessions with Rebecca. She has a talent for capturing special moments in a candid and relaxed way. Her style of shooting is very comfortable and allowed us to interact naturally. With an artistic eye, Rebecca transforms the ordinary into something more – photographs that become keepsakes for generations.”
Lisa Bloom, Pasadena ~ 2011 (2nd Lifestyle Session)

“Trying to capture a family of five moving targets is no easy feat, yet Rebecca handled it with ease. Working with Rebecca to document our family in photos was like spending an afternoon with a good and very patient friend. She spent time getting to know all five of us–our interests and stories, and her photos suggest a depth of feeling and expression beyond what we’d ever hoped. She finds beauty in moments, gestures and expressions that the ordinary person wouldn’t ever notice. Her photos are both art and history combined and we never get tired of admiring them!”
