Debbie A.  There are no words to describe the immense gratitude I feel.  Watching you with these families especially the moms, made my heart smile.  I know you understand how much this meant to the families and the moms especially, being one yourself.  Your patience, your generosity and the joy with which you gave of your talent and time is overwhelming.  I have been brought to tears several times just reflecting on the day.  And the families have sent emails of gratitude as well, for the opportunity and the love shown them.  I believe they felt valued and special.  It would not have been the success it was without your generosity.  I am so deeply grateful.. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!! This event exceeded all of my expectations and I know the gratitude and joy from the families in that space was palpable.  Warmly, Debbie,  President, Autism Society of Baltimore-Chesapeake


Holly B.  Debbie took my daughter and her friend’s senior pictures. She did a fabulous job, exceeding my expectations! I’m extremely pleased with the results and plan on using her for more family photos in the future. She took my daughter’s own ideas when deciding on locations, as well as her interests, making the photos more personal.
Hire Debbie for any of your photo needs and you won’t be disappointed!

Mary B.  Debbie has the patience of a saint. She works so well with people with other abilities and takes the time needed with them to help them feel comfortable and captures true emotions, true smiles. I have seen her in action in taking photos of those with Autism as well as Williams Syndrome and Downs Syndrome. She has sat on the floor and sang songs with them, let them click the button and take pictures of their parents, really anything it takes to get those precious images.

Trish W.  We have been working with Debbie for over three years now. What started out as capturing fall photos for the children in our centers has now blossom into fall, spring, graduation, and Christmas photos for four centers. As we have grown, Debbie has been working along side us. The families love to use the photos taken on family holiday cards and more. Debbie works with each child to get the perfect shot of everyone. She works with us to create the perfect three dimensional backdrop experience for every session. The pictures are returned quickly back to us with all the edits so that we can share with our families. Debbie Payne Photography has become a tradition for our families and it is one that they totally enjoy receiving! Thank you for always working with us Debbie! Warm Regards, Trisha, Chief Operations Officer

Candace A. Debbie took our wedding photos. She was professional, prompt and a blast to work with! The photos were beautiful and unique and captured our day exactly as we wished. Would definitely choose her again!

Melissa S. Working with Debbie Payne Photography was so much fun! Debbie has a great sense of humor with outstanding professionalism. She is perfect the photographer for families, graduates, weddings, newborns, and so much more.

Mary Anne C.  Debbie recently took pictures of my one year old granddaughter Silvia. I wanted pictures of her in this old heirloom dress that I wore when I was 1, then had pictures of my 3 daughters in the dress when they were 1. Debbie listened carefully to exactly what I wanted & did a fantastic job! Once we got those pics out of the way & did an outfit change, she had so many props & fun engaging things for Silvi to pose with! Debbie is such a sweet, easy going person who knows how get "the money shot!" My granddaughter absolutely loved her, which is saying a lot, cause she is in that phase where she doesn't want to go to, or be around anyone she doesn't know, but she was picking flowers for Debbie & asking for her to pick her up! So, if you are looking for someone to take pictures of your child - look no further! We also received our finished digital photos very quickly!! We will definitely be setting up another appointment for my daughter to return with the rest of the family, (she also has a 4month old) to get family photos done! Thank you so much Debbie for the great photos! They will be cherished!💕


Kimberly A.   Hi Debbie,  Thank you so much for coming to the house to take the photos, and for bringing the balloons.  We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and we appreciated how great you were with Henry.  These photos turned out better than we even imagined.  Thank you again for all that you did!  We will keep you in mind for any future photos, and certainly pass along your information to others as well!  If you could send me your mailing address I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks again!   Kim, Nick and Henry
