"My first experience with The Forrest Gallery was summer of 1985, to have my senior photos taken.  I remembered how much I enjoyed the session, and how happy I was with my portraits.  Thirty-one years later it was time for my daughter to take her senior photos, and my first thought was Forrest.  I was not disappointed, and Forrest is still the place to go for quality work.  The photo session was great, and they still offer many indoor and outdoor options.  The pictures of my daughter are absolutely beautiful, and the quality of the final products is unmatched.  Without a doubt, my choice to return to Forrest was the right decision.

“Thank you Keith Forrest for your beautiful work. We have loved, and continue to love, the photographs and the portraits you have taken of our entire family over the many years. So happy we were back home in Virginia Beach to swing by to your studio for you to work “your magic” on the newest edition of our family. They all came out so AMAZING, and it was difficult to decide which ones to get. We have to make another appointment, when we are back in town, to plan for a portrait of our growing family. Thanks again to you and your family!”

“I can not say enough great things about Dustin’s senior portrait session with The Forrest Gallery. From the first moment until the last, the entire staff focused on us and were amazing. We not only have amazing portraits, but also the memories of the special experience to cherish. Watching your child have senior portraits done is an emotional experience, and the entire staff made it such a joy. I am so thankful we chose The Forrest Gallery for the portraits of Dustin’s last year as a high school student. These portraits will be displayed and shared with pride. Thank you so much for the memories!”

 "The quality of the photography and portraits themselves were above my expectations. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like it was all about us. Keith, our photographer was fantastic. He asked questions to understand what we were looking for and looked at Kaylin’s outfits to determine the best setting for her pictures. Keith got her to open up and she enjoyed her session. He captured her inner beauty with these stunning, natural portraits."

"A friend referred me and I fell in love with the work when I visited the studio. The first thought I had was these portraits are works of art. The entire staff is very professional, efficient, and really worked with our family over the past couple of years to provide us with heirlooms that our family will treasure for years and years to come."

-Bridget Kidd

 "I did a great deal of research and it was clear that Forrest was superior in artistic presentation and brought out the best in the subjects. It was my vision of the perfect photo of our family and our portraits brought tears to my eyes. You captured the essence of our family in a photo we will treasure it forever. We can’t help but smile every time we look at the portrait."
