Some lovely things my past newborn, family & branding photography clients have said xx

We are so thrilled with our newborn photos of Imogen! The shoot itself was so relaxed and peaceful – it was a real treat for me and Ben to sit back, have a cup of tea and watch Sophie take such gorgeous photos. Sophie was so patient and gentle and clearly knew all the tricks of the trade with the white noise machine!!! We had plenty of time to feed Imogen as and when needed and we had a really lovely morning.
The newborn phase is over so quickly and I am so happy I have such beautiful photos to remember how tiny Imogen was at 11 days old.
From the moment of booking to receiving prints Sophie was fantastic – really professional but so friendly too. The prints, USB and leather holder it all came in was so lovely to get through the post and made it all the more special.
I cannot recommend enough – thank you Sophie!!

Sophie is completely amazing at what she does. From the start of the booking process to when your photos come through the post in a gorgeous leather envelope, Sophie pays very close attention to detail. From choosing colour schemes, her patience, her cups of tea and biscuits! We are totally in love with our newborn photos of our precious daughter and will cherish them forever, thanks to Sophie.

I would like to take a moment to thank you so much Sophie for capturing some beautiful moments of our little boy at such a precious time 💕 From start to finish of the shoot we felt so comfortable and relaxed being in the studio with you as did Teddy. So much thought, patience and care went into the morning with us. I felt very anxious beforehand with a newborn baby thinking would he cry? What if he doesn’t settle for the pictures? But Sophie made us a cup of tea and we sat and watched her soothe Teddy and get him into various positions and outfits to get some beautiful pictures, my husband and I felt so relaxed and we loved watching the magic unfold..
We cannot recommend Sophie highly enough. Thank you xxx

After following Sophie’s page for months I booked my little one in to have a newborn shoot. Seeing all her amazing shoots of different little ones made me even more impatient whilst being over due so as soon as we could we got booked in with her and she did not disappoint! Sophie not only is a lovely, welcoming lady she is very professional and takes massive pride in her work which shows when you see the outcome. Our little one got a little unsettled which didn’t phase Sophie all. I can’t thank her enough for the precious photos we have. I already can’t wait to have an excuse to book in again!!

I used Sophie for a branding shoot with my team. After looking at her Instagram and website I contacted Sophie as her style seemed similar to mine. After a chat with her, I was so confident that she got me and understood my brief.

On the day of the shoot Sophie was amazing. Many of the team hadn’t done anything like it before so were a little nervous, but Sophie put everyone right at ease, guiding them on how to achieve the best shots. A true professional with an approach that puts everyone at ease, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!!

Sophie is such a brilliant photographer. She always makes you feel at ease allowing for perfectly natural photographs. After having our wedding photos and a family shoot done with Sophie, I would definitely recommend and will certainly use again in the future! Thank you Sophie! xx

Sophie is fantastic – we had some maternity and newborn photographs done with her. Sophie was amazing with our little girl during the newborn shoot, she was so patient with her and really took the time to get the perfect shot. She is very welcoming and made my husband and I feel very comfortable, to the point he almost nodded off!! We are really impressed with the photographs from both of our shoots and couldn’t recommend Sophie highly enough. Thank you x

Debbie

Sophie did a baby shoot for our 5 month old daughter. My husband & I were absolutely thrilled with the images we received. Sophie is a brilliant photographer and interacted really well with our little one. She is very professional but at the same time warm & friendly. We would thoroughly recommend Sophie!

We had a family photoshoot booked in with Sophie at the end of August and it was so much fun! Sophie was amazing with our little girl and caught some lovely family photos which we will cherish forever.
Sophie is truly wonderful at what she does, I have taken a thousands pictures of my daughter and none of them compare-you just cant beat professional photos with a fab photographer!
I cant wait to hang the pictures up in my house. Thank you Sophie.

Have recently had a newborn shoot with Sophie for my daughter and we are thrilled with the final pictures. Sophie is passionate about her work and has a great variety of props. Sophie took her time and was led by my daughter’s comfort needs with feeds and changing. She also had amazing patience with my boisterous 2yr son who joined for sibling pics! Sophie took my wedding pictures and did my son’s newborn shoot as well, so what else can I say… We highly recommend her! Thank you Sophie x

Vicki

We had a newborn photo shoot for our baby when he was just over a week old. Sophie was brilliant with him and really laid back about all the feeds and nappy changes between photos! Sophie is really welcoming and makes you feel very comfortable in her home studio. The photos we have are amazing and we couldn?t be happier with them!

Just loved the whole experience, Kasper was luckily a dream and very cooperative with the positions and prop used. Loved the diversity of colours, props and positions.
The pictures then came swiftly afterwards and we just love them! I just wish I had done new born shoots with the other four children I have. Highly recommend Sophie and would love to go back for another shoot when he?s older.

Debbie

Sophie was lovely totally put me at ease as I was stressed out due to my baby crying all morning before the photoshoot! Sophie was brilliant with her managed and to get some beautiful photos. I have bought some frames and going to give them as Christmas presents for the grandparents/aunts and uncles. So lovely to have some prints and also have them on USB for future. Would definitely recommend xx

Laura

Where do we even start? When booking Sophie we were made to feel at ease straight away. We were invited round to her house where she went through all the details. Between that and the wedding day whenever any questions were asked Sophie got back to me straight away. On the actual day Sophie made our wedding day perfect.?The photos are so natural and that all comes down to her warm and relaxing yet professional approach. I would hugely recommend anyone to use Sophie as I feel she really captured our day fantastically but also became part of our day. Thank you so much we will be always grateful for everything you did for us xxx

Briony & Sean

We have just received our USB with all of our photos on and we absolutely love them all! Sophie was absolutely amazing on the day and just fitted in with our guests, you could hardly tell she was there! All of the photos are perfect and capture the whole day so well! We are so pleased that we chose Sophie and would definitely recommend her to others! Thank you so much!! Xxx

I highly recommend Sophie. When I was planning my proposal to my now fianc? I spoke to Sophie to discuss my plans- Sophie was fantastic at helping to settle my nerves and make great suggestions such as timing of the day to ensure the sun was in a perfect position to capture the perfect photos. The photos make it look like we were the only ones on the beach they look great. Sophie was excellent from start to finish and captured the moment that I proposed perfectly. Sophie got some fantastic photos of a day we will never forget. Thanks again Sophie.

Ben

We had a lovely pre-wedding photo shoot in the New Forest with Sophie… it was good practise for our big day and Sophie made it fun and easy, lovely pics, so chuffed that Sophie will be doing our pics at our Wedding, very excited! Thankyou xxx

Bev & Chris

Sophie did an incredible job of shooting our wedding back in June. We were instantly drawn to her warmth from the first video call to discuss our plans and details. She way exceeded our expectations with beautiful natural shots, which was important to us and also her calmness and organisation on the big day made everything run very smoothly. Do not hesitate with booking Sophie for your wedding or other special occasion!
