Everyone’s reason for hiring a photographer will be different but the most common theme will be creating a visual legacy to cherish forever. For me, it is ‘ME’ being in our family photos. I want our family story (whatever stage in our lives) to be told in a beautiful and thoughtful way and I can’t always do this by myself and frankly, even if the most adorable moment had unfolded in front of my husband’s eyes, with a camera accidentally falling into his hands, it would not even have crossed his mind to take the picture.

Sounds familiar?

“After the birth of our second baby, we went to visit Petra at her lovely home and we were made to feel very welcome. She spent time listening to what we were looking for and understanding our style. Having photos taken with an 18month old and a new born was never going to be easy! But Petra never rushed and had many ways of interacting with our toddler, getting the best out of her. We are so pleased with our photos and they capture the love in our family and this precious time for us. Petra is just the most talented, kind and loving lady and we can’t wait to get her round for some more photos later in the year! Thank you ♥”
