Uniquely Designed
Gregory and Lesa Daniel return to Texas School with their class, Taking Your Studio to the Next Level.

In the meantime, learn more about the personal touch they bring to their portraiture.

Uniquely designed is one of the reasons Gregory and Lesa Daniel's clients trust them in the creation of their most important lasting treasures. Lesa spends a great deal of time prior to the actual camera study skillfully listening, translating and creating a concept design for the portraits that will be created. 

Learn more about their process at The Photographer Online.
