I’ve just looked at them … I absolutely LOVE them, they’re my favourite photos that we have EVER had taken. I’ve loved some of the other shoots we’ve had done, but I really think these photos you did are our favourites.You have captured my children so perfectly, thank you so much!

There’s only one word – amazing!!Not only are Donna’s photos amazing, but also the photo shoots. Our kids had a great time, running, jumping, climbing – and Donna is happy to go with the flow and catch the kids’ own specific characters because of this! An absolutely great experience from start to finish – the girls enjoyed it and the pictures are just stunning! The photos really capture our girls’ personalities and I just love the natural surroundings.Donna was amazing working with the girls. They are quite lively, but she kept them entertained and engaged. The girls had so much fun! If you are looking for natural photos of your children, I couldn’t recommend Donna any more highly.
