We’ve just had a maternity and newborn photo shoot with Deborah. We’re so happy with the lovely photos! They’re really beautiful and make such beautiful memories of our first boy. We had our shoots during the social distancing measures, and Deborah was very professional and caring during the whole process, making sure both Gina & Arthur were happy, comfortable and safe. We’re so pleased with the whole service we had from Deborah, and will definitely call her again in the future! Thanks Deborah!

We had a photo shoot with our three week old daughter. Deborah was brilliant with her! So patient and really took the time to find out what we wanted from the shoot. Deborah was brilliant at keeping our daughter calm and relaxed and we have some gorgeous photos that really capture our baby girl's character. The hardest part was choosing the photos at the end as they're all so cute! Would definitely recommend.

Landscape Photographs for your wall

The first two of this Lockdown series are below: Herne Hill, Ilminster and Ham Hill, Stoke-Sub Hamdon.

Two iconic views from Somerset, captured in the early morning most on a cool November morning. The photographs are beautifully edited to bring out rich tones and hues evocative of the late autumn season.
