“We recently booked Petra for our newborn photoshoot with our 2 week old son. The shoot itself was lovely in Petra’s welcoming home, she gave us a long 4 hour time slot to ensure we were all relaxed and had lots of time for various ideas and settings and to catch him both awake and asleep. Everything felt calm and as though it had ran smoothly even when he was unsettled 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 of the 10 we choose and I am so grateful she captured these relaxed moments. I will be recommended Petra to all of my new parent friends, we will definitely book again in the future.”

“We’ve just had some newborn photos done by the lovely Petra and are so pleased with them. She made us feel so welcome in her studio and I was just amazed how she 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 Petra 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 ! Not to mention her brilliant photography skills! Thanks once again Petra xxx”

“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 at ease and 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”

“Thank you for a great family photo shoot and some amazing images to treasure for a lifetime.”
Genevieve (family session)
“Petra is amazing – she captures the most beautiful photos. She came to our house and spent an hour taking shots. It didn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable at all. She had made a point of remembering my daughters’ names and helped put them at ease so that she could get some natural photos. 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. Thanks Petra!”
“I’ve been meaning to post a review for ages (baby brain) as I was so over the moon with the photos I received from Petra!
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 organized images sent to me for selection soon after.
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!
I would highly recommend Petra to anyone whether they are looking for photos for business or to capture those special family moments! Thank you Petra!”

“My partner and I took our daughter for a cake smash for her first birthday – in previous photo shoots Isabelle hasn’t smiled and hasn’t really ‘clicked’ with the photographer – but Petra was fantastic with Isabelle 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. I couldn’t recommend Petra more she is so fantastic at what she does!”
Aimee (cake smash)
“We recently booked Petra to photograph our daughter for her one year photos/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)
“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 ♥”

We recently had some newborn pictures taken by Petra & the results were amazing.
Being a first time mum it was a bit nerve wracking however she made us all feel really relaxed, making sure we stopped for feeds without feeling rushed. Throughout our session Petra helped us decide on what type of photos were good to have done as keep sakes. I wasn’t keen on being in the photos myself but I am really glad we took Petras advice and had some family pictures as they are a really special touch and I know we will treasure them.
Baby Frank was super happy and Petra defiantly has a way with children, we can’t wait to visit again.
We feel as though we met as strangers and left as friends xx”
Charlotte (newborn session)
“I just got my photos through today and 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! thank you so much.
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.
We are going to get some printed and displayed in the front room.
You were great when you came here and I would recommend you to friends.”
Sally (motherhood session)
“I asked Petra to help capture special family moments at my husband’s 40th birthday party, with relatively little notice! Petra was extremely accommodating and completely understood the brief, which was for non-fussy, natural shots to sum up the atmosphere. 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!”
“Petra recently took our company photos. We are a Glazing company and I think that many of our team were apprehensive about having their photos taken. Petra very quickly put everyone at ease and it soon became a really fun and team building experience. By the end of our time with Petra everyone felt very relaxed about having their images taken. The end product was superb. We are so happy with the images that Petra has taken. She really listened to what we wanted and fulfilled our criteria. The images far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Petra and her services. Thank you Petra!”
Anna from SGC Glass (commercial photoshoot)
“Last week I found myself with a stinking cold, after no sleep, in the park, in the rain, being observed by various council workers and members of the public, having my photos taken by Petra.
The result? They are absolutely brilliant- on brand, dynamic and authentically ME.
Her talent is phenomenal, and her coaching throughout the shoot is direct, but kind- let’s face it- I would rather be told to change my posture or expression there and then than be presented with pictures that don’t 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.”
