‘I contacted Mary to see whether she could take some ‘natural’ photos of our family, focusing on the children. I have always found this quite stressful in the past as the children are all under 7 and tend to find the whole process of having their pictures taken really hard work and hence tend to play up! Mary was incredible with them, totally put them at ease and they actually really enjoyed the time they spent with her. We were so delighted with all the photos – they captured the children looking so happy, relaxed and their individual personalities really shone through. We have had so many compliments about the photos but all the credit goes to Mary who produced such great images that we will treasure forever’

It was a tough decision to chose which prints we wanted as they were all so lovely!

Thanks again, we really are so delighted with them and will definitely be recommending your services to any family or friends that are interested!

Mary came to our house and did a photo shoot with us and our three young children. She was very relaxed and from the outset put the children at ease. She was patient throughout despite uncooperative children at times! We were delighted with all the photos – the hardest bit was choosing which ones to get printed!

“After taking my two year old son for a 1 hour studio photo shoot I felt perplexed, the photos were nice but they just weren’t ‘him’, it was a very in-out process and it just did not feel right.

That’s when I found Mary Smith. I came across her website and saw some beautiful examples of children looking happy in a naturally lit environment and I felt like this was much more what I had been looking for.

Mary made my son (and I) feel comfortable and relaxed, she was really easy going and so patient Mary managed to capture a side of my son that I just didn’t see in the photographs from his studio shoot, he is such a cheeky little thing and he loves the outdoors and the photos really show this and his personality.

The final pictures are absolutely stunning and the way Mary has edited them mean I have some beautiful photographs to show friends and relatives and hang on the wall forever.

I would recommend her to anyone, especially people with young children who really want pictures that reflect their children’s personalities.”

We enjoyed a really fun and relaxed family shoot at home with Mary. She was fantastic with our two young girls and made everything very straightforward. She was a pleasure to have with us, putting us all at our ease immediately and she had allowed plenty of time for us. The end result was a collection of absolutely beautiful pictures of our girls and amazing family shots that we will treasure for years to come. I highly recommend Mary and will certainly be booking her again next year.
