“Petra gave us a long 4 hour time slot to ensure we had lots of time for various ideas and settings. Everything felt calm and nothing was too much trouble. The finished product of our photo’s are absolutely stunning, everybody has commented on how beautiful they are and I cannot wait to frame and hang them. On the day Petra encouraged us to take some pictures as a family, I was sure I wouldn’t like these as I don’t usually like pictures of myself, however, these pictures are my favourite and I am so grateful.”

“I was just amazed how Petra managed to settle Stanley. With him being 5 weeks old at the time of the photos he was a bit past the sleepy newborn stage so was a bit more challenging to get the sleepy photos. But she has such a lovely way with him she was able to settle him perfectly and get the results we wanted . She has so much patience!”
Laura (newborn session)
“Petra has captured moments of my family, I could only dream of being captured in a photograph, for me to look back on and cherish forever. ❤️ She made everyone feel so comfortable, even the most awkward (husband) relaxed into “it”. Thank you Petra for recommending the Lifestyle Shoot, and for all of our beautiful images. I now have the hard job of choosing what ones to print and display. Cx”
Clare (family session)
“Thank you for some amazing images to treasure for a lifetime.”
Genevieve (family session)
“Petra is amazing – she captured the most beautiful photos of us. It didn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable. She had made a point of remembering my daughters’ names and helped put them at ease. I love the way she works with natural light. I would highly recommend Petra, I now have some really special photos of me and my girls that I will treasure forever. ”
Rachel (motherhood session)
“I was so over the moon with my photos! As someone who genuinely lives in terror of having a photo taken I was dreading getting some photos done for use for my business.
Petra’s warm, friendly and natural approach put my son and I at ease and she was extremely patient with me!
Turnaround was very efficient with beautiful, clear, well organised images.
I ended up with lots of lovely, non cheesy images and headshots for my brand and also some beautiful keepsake photos of my son too!”
Bear&Bloom (personal branding)
“In our previous photo shoots Isabelle hasn’t smiled and hasn’t really ‘clicked’ with the photographer – but Petra was fantastic with her and she was smiling away. The pictures are beautiful and more than we ever expected. Thank you so much for the utterly brilliant morning, we all had so much fun!”
Aimee (cake smash)
“Petra was great, putting us at ease and working really hard with our initially grumpy little one. When the photos arrived I was amazed! I work with a lot of photographers for work and knew that the early shots my daughter had maybe given Petra a split second of a smile and she’d managed to capture it all. Beautiful photos that far exceeded my expectations, and a pleasure to work with throughout.”
Libby (cake smash)
“Petra 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.
We are so pleased with our photos, 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 ♥”
Chloe (newborn session)
“Being a first time mum it was a bit nerve wracking however Petra made us all feel really relaxed, without feeling rushed. I wasn’t keen on being in the photos myself but I am really glad we took Petra’s advice and had some family pictures as they are really special. Petra defiantly has a way with children. We feel as though we met as strangers and left as friends xx”
Charlotte (newborn session)
“I love them all! I was dreading it to be honest as I assumed that I wouldn’t like the ones with me in but they are brilliant! I feel that you have really captured Poppy’s spirit in some, in a couple of the photos she has her “cheeky” face and others a more wistful look.
Sally (motherhood session)
“I asked Petra to help capture special family moments at my husband’s 40th birthday party. Petra was extremely accommodating and completely understood the brief. Wow she delivered! We received our lovely set of photos back in super speedy time, and it was very easy to work with Petra to organise it all. I will definitely be booking her again!”
Sophie (lifestyle event session)
“We are a Glazing company and I think that many of our team were apprehensive about having their photos taken but it soon became a really fun and team building experience. The end product was superb. We are so happy with the images, she really listened to what we wanted and fulfilled our criteria. The images far exceeded our expectations.”
Anna from SGC Glass (commercial photoshoot)
“My branding photos are absolutely brilliant- on brand, dynamic and authentically ME. Her talent is phenomenal, and her coaching throughout the shoot is direct, but kind and was presented with pictures that represent how I see myself.
I can’t shout about her loudly enough. She’s been doing my commercial pictures for around 3 years, and in 2019 I signed up to her subscription service because the value is INSANE.”
