With a 10 month old baby I wan't entirely sure how the session would go, especially as it was nearing her bedtime, but I needn't have worried.
Kirsty's super relaxed approach made our shoot so enjoyable. There was no standing still and repeatedly trying to make the baby look and smile at the camera, instead I just had fun playing with my daughter, singing her favourite nursery rhymes while Kirsty skillfully snapped away.
The photos we got back were absolutely beautiful. For the first few days I honestly couldn't stop looking at them and we have had so many compliments from family and friends.
Kirsty has done an incredible job capturing our smiles and emotions, and as a first time mum I am so grateful to her for freezing these moments in time through her photos.
If you are looking for a photographer who will take photos you will truly cherish, book Kirsty, I promise you won't be disappointed. Kirsty - I can't thank you enough.
I visited London and stumbled upon Kirsty on Instagram and fell in love with her photos.
Kirsty was so friendly and professional throughout, really taking time to understand what I wanted and even went location scouting for me beforehand! That's professionalism!
She was great with my 3 energetic boys, so patient and kind and was also super open to ideas that I had throughout the shoot.
The 3 hours went by with a breeze, and for my husband to even say that it went by so quickly, just showed how much fun we all had! Thank you so much! I can't recommend Kirsty enough and will be recommending her to all my London and overseas friends!

My photo session with Kirsty was a really wonderful experience. She knew how to get my grumpy toddler to smile and cooperate! We had lots of fun and the photos are simply beautiful. Thank you very much Kirsty!
"I have admired Kirsty's pictures for some time now - she always seemed to be able to capture beautiful shots that show families looking natural, happy but amazing all at the same time. I thought there must be some trick, maybe she always chose secretly photogenic model types. I didn't think for a million years that someone would be able to take photos of ordinary looking us that would be so amazing.
"I've always thought my children were beautiful - who doesn't - but Kirsty managed to capture them so amazingly but still make them look like them - happy, crazy, confident, fun them!
"Kirsty's photoshoots are an absolute joy. She doesn't try to pose children - she just lets them be children and captures them looking exactly as they should do; running around causing chaos. My children are non-stop, headstrong and don't like being told what to do. Added to this, my one year old can't understand most instructions. Enter the perfect photographer - Kirsty watched them, talked to them and, like magic, caught incredible shots of them.
"It should have been stressful - the South Bank on a Saturday with two small children - but it wasn't. Not for one moment. Added to that, within a few days, we had the finished pictures. I haven't stopped looking at them since, amazing shots that captured exactly what my children got up to in the best possible light.
"I know I'll still be looking at the beautiful pictures Kirsty took when I'm old and grey(er!), marvelling at just how wonderful my girls were.
If you're thinking about whether or not to book a shoot then stop - just do it. I promise you, you won't regret it."
"Kirsty took some photos of me and my 5 year old son at the Lavender Fields in Banstead a week ago. I was a bit worried my son wouldn't play ball for the camera and I am not a fan of having my picture taken at the best of times. Kirsty worked wonders with my son, asking him lots of questions, letting him play with her camera and take some shots himself which meant he became super relaxed and enjoyed himself. The results were stunning. To say I am delighted would be an understatement. Super natural pictures captured in stunning surroundings. Everyone who has seen them has had nothing but praise and compliments for them. Thank you Kirsty! Too many too choose a favourite one from."
"Kirsty took some gorgeous family photos for us in Richmond park. Despite it being freezing cold she was amazing at putting my 3 year old (and her reluctant daddy!) at ease and took some stunning photos we will treasure forever!! Will definitely be asking her to take more for us again! Can not recommend her photography highly enough! Thank you Kirsty!"
''Kirsty was fabulous! She managed to capture the attention of my usually very shy three year old and more importantly gave me an opportunity to enjoy both the boys, which I haven't been able to do since our second arrived seven weeks ago. So amidst the newborn haze, she captured sweetness, love and most importantly pure, genuine joy! I would highly recommend Kirsty for family photographs and we will be calling on her again when number two is a little bit older :) ''
"I was keen to get some professional family pics but I'm not a fan of structured, posed shots. Kirsty came to our house and simply snapped away whilst we played with the children. We had so much fun, she made everyone feel so comfortable and managed to capture some gorgeous moments. She had some great ideas, the session just flowed so easily and my 3 year old loved being centre of attention! I would highly recommend Kirsty, we now have some beautiful, natural family pics that we've scattered around the house and shared with our family who equally love them."
“I’ve done both a beginners photography course and an Autumn family photo shoot with Kirsty and cannot recommend her highly enough! The course was perfectly pitched & professional, but relaxed & ridiculously fun. So much so that we’re about to book the next one!
The photoshoot was beyond my wildest expectations. Kirsty was brilliant with my raucous toddler, with endless patience & so many cute ways to get her engaged with the camera. I am overwhelmed with the photos. That’s everyone’s Christmas presents sorted for the family!
This woman is a magician! You absolutely won’t be disappointed.”
"Kirsty was amazing. She came into a world of chaos at our house with a 3 year old and 1 year old who were both determined to hide from the camera and generally cause trouble for our 'family' photo shoot. I couldn't believe the shots Kirsty got at the end of it - she made us look serene and relaxed, exactly how you'd hope to look even though it might not be the reality! She was brilliant engaging with both kids and getting the best out of everyone. Highly recommend."
"Simply the best!!! I would highly recommend! Myself and my husband had our maternity shoot this morning at Isabella plantation and what a lovely place it was too, we also received our images to view same day! Absolutely over the moon with them and will for sure be using again! Extremely friendly and thoughtful."
