"Rachel has a real gift capturing the special moments in the most natural and beautiful settings. Her style was completely unobtrusive and it really comes across in the relaxed and natural reactions of both my daughter and I. Her photos are truly magical and we are so pleased with the results. We really enjoyed our mummy and daughter shoot and we will be booking her again soon for a family session..."

"Rachel is one of the most talented and professional photographers we’ve come across. She has a wonderful eye for light and composition, and although we were short of time (and our little boy was very tired!) she managed to capture us looking natural and relaxed. We can’t recommend Rachel highly enough!"

"We are delighted that Rachel was able to photograph our son’s first days for us, and couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She is such a talented photographer! The pictures from our newborn session are everything we hoped for and will be a cherished reminder of these special, early days. 

We were a little apprehensive about the session for a number of reasons- not naturals in front of the camera (well- the adults anyway); our older son was quite emotional about the arrival of his brother, and our house was in an even more chaotic state than usual. Rachel made the session so easy and comfortable for all of us. 

She quickly identified spaces around the house that would work as settings and we soon felt relaxed about our mess! She then went at a pace that suited all of us, with Rachel capturing natural moments as they occurred, and fitting in portraits of our newborn in his sleepy state at appropriate moments. 

What Rachel won’t tell you is that she is also something of a baby whisperer- I was in awe of her ability to relax our baby into a dazed state, and she was just great at playing with our older son, ensuring he enjoyed the experience too.

The end result is exactly the style we hoped for - wonderfully natural pictures of our new baby and our family, no out of place props or poses. Our only trouble now is that we love them all and need to find the wall space to put them on !"

"We were so pleased with the photos Rachel took. As someone who doesn’t like having their photo taken Rachel put us all at ease. She had a great selection of toys and tricks up her sleeve for keeping the children engaged! We were delighted with the photos. They are beautifully natural and unposed - just everyone enjoying the outdoors. We will absolutely be booking Rachel again for photo sessions with the children over the years ahead."
