"We met with Catherine to have a family photo shoot for my son’s 1st birthday. Catherine was very professional and had already planned good locations nearby, at a time to capture the ‘golden hour’. She made us feel so relaxed and was great at making my son laugh, resulting in beautiful photographs. She is incredibly skilled and is very good at editing too. Thank you so much Catherine, we will treasure your photographs forever."

Alice B.W, Olney

"I can't recommend Catherine highly enough. The children had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were astounded by the quality of the photographs and had so many wonderful shots to choose from."

Susan R, Welwyn

"The children were immediately at ease with Catherine, she has a lovely way with them and used a number of games and ideas to keep them entertained and engaged throughout the shoot. They loved the location and, for them, it was just another play opportunity that could be captured on film! Catherine used the natural resources available for some great photos that we will always treasure. Highly recommended."

Claire S, Letchworth

"I’ll be honest, I hate having my photo taken but really wanted some special pictures with the kids and the experience with Catherine was brilliant. She was really relaxed, was extremely understanding of the concentration levels of kids and after ten minutes I forgot she had the camera! Catherine really captured the essence of my kids and the photos are beautiful; I will definitely repeat the experience in a few years!"

Ros B, Hitchin

"We recently had a family photo shoot, Catherine picked a beautiful autumnal location and managed to get some great natural photos of the girls at golden hour. The children immediately felt at ease laughing and playing about in the leaves whilst Catherine captured some great shots. Thanks again for an enjoyable photo shoot."

Tasha S, Hitchin

"Catherine is a super talented photographer who captured amazing photos of our boys that we will treasure forever. The shoot was great fun and her approach was so relaxed they could have gone on for hours!!"
