My son, Jimmie, attends the DLC at South High and you came to take the classes senior photos. I cannot even express to you my gratitude for this.
I am a single mom with limited funds, and Jimmie’s senior pictures were going to be the best that I could do on my phone camera. But when he came home from school with that disc of pictures it brought tears to my eyes. They are beautifully done. I am so touched that you did this for the kids, and for us parents.
I can’t say thank you enough… Your kindness truly made a difference in our lives.

Dear Craig and Monica,
I know we always remember who you are as you come into our building because you are the ONLY photographers who come into our building.
However, I want to thank you for caring enough about all of the MANY people you meet in the course of each week that you take the time to remember our names and what we do. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and fabulous job you do each year! I ALWAYS sing your praises to parents. You did well with my own children’s photos umpteen years ago and continue to do so with my students.

To whom it may concern,
I am now a third year Principal at Crooked River Elementary in Prineville Oregon after having taught mathematics at the high school in Prineville for 10-years. It has been a true honor to have Craig Huston and his team take our school pictures. He has been coming to Crooked River for over 30 years and also taken pictures at our 3 other local grade schools. “Curly” as he is affectionately known by our students and staff is amazing with children. They love to see him every year. He makes taking their pictures such a positive experience because he calls them all sorts of loveable names and gets them to smile beautifully. “Curly” is patient and truly cares about our students, staff and our school.
My own twins are now 7th graders and they can still tell you every cute name “Curly” called them from Kindergarten on. He will make your saddest, angriest children smile. You want he and his great staff to take your school pictures.

To whom it may concern,
It is with great pleasure that I write a letter of reference for Craig Huston of Craig Huston Photography.
When I came to Harvey Clarke in 2000, Craig, or Curley as he is sometimes called, was the school photographer. He books in plenty of time and works with the school schedules. His assistant, Monica, calls ahead, to work out all the logistics. Picture day is always a breeze with no problems encountered.
Craig is always on time and he and his crew set up early to start the staff photographs first. We start with kindergarten and work through to 4th grade. We are the largest elementary school in the district and have four lunches to get through. Craig graciously takes down his equipment for this and after lunches are over sets back up for afternoon kinders and any other students or staff that have not had their picture taken. He always checks in with the office before he leaves to work out what to do with late orders and schedule a retake day. When the picture packages arrive, included is a nice booklet of all the orders for us to refer to for questions.
From the office and logistic side of things Craig Huston Photography is a dream to work with, but that is not why we love having him. Craig makes a connection with every child he encounters. He jokes with them, putting them at ease and has a cute or fun nickname for each child, which always makes them smile. His pictures bring out the best in each child. If there is a problem with an order his staff fixes it with no questions asked.
Picture day is always a cheerful and positive experience with Craig and his crew of professionals. I would highly recommend his company for all schools.
