Kelly Herndon
Executive Director Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation Fund, Inc.
Gwinnett County Public Schools has benefited from a wealth of excellent business partners over the years and certainly among that list would be the impassioned team of Magic Moments Photography. More than simply a business owner, Loralee Beard’s devotion to the young people of Gwinnett has been evident as a parent, a community leader, a volunteer, and as a supporter of the school system. One need only read her articles and marvel at the photos in each issue of the Gwinnett Citizen to know Loralee is a mother to all, celebrates diversity in all things, and above all seeks to capture the love and care of a nurturing community in each face. A hometown is not about size, it is about the lives that are lived and shared. With each pictorial, Magic Moments Photography preserves a memory of a hometown.

Keith Cheney
Principal, Mountain View High School
During my seven years as a principal in Gwinnett County, I have had the privilege of working with Magic Moment Photography. If “a picture’s worth a thousand words,” then Magic Moment’s pictures speak volumes. From staff photos, to yearbook pictures, to action sports shots, to the funny or embarrassing candid … all have been captured with perfection through their lenses. Not only is their work of high quality, Magic Moment Photography also maintains one of the most customer friendly businesses in all of Gwinnett. Flexible, reliable, and accommodating are just some of the adjectives that describe this family run business. They are a true pleasure to work with, and I look forward to doing so for many years to come.

Debra Dees

Our experience with Magic Moment Photography has been nothing short of fantastic! Loralee and her family deliver on their promises and extend first class services to our school and community. Magic Moment Photography is truly dedicated to producing a top quality product and servicing their clients with ease and efficiency. I would not hesitate to recommend Loralee and Magic Moment to your organization.

Kevin Maloof
Athletic Director, Dacula High School
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Magic Moments Photography for capturing the essence of Dacula High School athletics in both individual and group pictures. For the past ten years we have depended upon your expertise to indelibly document the rich traditions of our sports programs in pictures, and we have never been disappointed. A tribute to your contributions to our sports’ legacies are the many action shots which line the hallways of our school and which mark the “Magic Moments” in the lives of many of our student athletes. Thank you for your continued success in marking the milestones of Dacula High School.

Rudy Wilson
Band Director, Brookwood High School
In my 25 years at Brookwood High School and as Band Director, I have been very satisfied with the work of the Magic Moments Photography. In the summer before camp, we spend a week in preparation for our annual camp at Western Carolina University. At the end of the week after we have issued the uniforms to the students, we have individual, small groups, and a full band picture made. The photos are well done and the staff photographers are courteous to the students and their parents and offer a good product. From time to time during the year, photos are needed of the band for performances or publications and Loralee is always available to send or offer her help to get what we need. I have also some done some individual photo shots for publications and programs that are professionaly done. Before each concert during the year when the students are dressed up in their formal concert dress, Magic Moment Photography does individual and family shots and offers photo packages for parents and students to have to commemorate the event and the school year. The company is dependable and reliable and provides a good product with good service. I would highly recommend them to other groups and organizations.

Gary Long
Athletic Director, Mill Creek High School
Mill Creek High School has been using Magic Moment Photography exclusively for the last 4 years. The staff at Magic Moment has been incredible to work with. They do our yearbook pictures, prom pictures, special event pictures and our athletic team, individual, and family pictures. They are extremely prompt in getting the pictures scheduled and returned to the school and students. Loralee Beard and the staff at Magic Moment have been the consummate professionals in every aspect of their relationship with Mill Creek High School. Magic Moment is always willing to provide pictures for us as the need arises. We could not be happier with our partnership with Magic Moment Photography and look forward to a long and happy partnership.

Doug Monda
CFO, Loganville Christian Academy
We began doing business with Magic Moments in 2008. We made the switch because we are a growing school and needed a company that could handle our growth and still deliver a high quality picture for our families. We have been thrilled with the move. The staff at Magic Moments is always professional and friendly. They are able to accommodate time schedules and help to minimize the amount of time it takes to shoot an entire school. We would highly recommend their services.
