Kind Words / Family

The Caldwell Family

It was a cold frosty morning with the threat of snow in the air when Kirsty arrived. She'd bent over backwards and squeezed me in at the last minute, I'd just been given some awful news and wanted to capture how perfect our family was before it all changed. I'm extremely grateful that I found her. From the second she arrived she was warm and kind and connected with my toddler almost immediately. I'd booked the longest family session to try and reflect a day in our lives. Kirsty was great, she let us completely lead the day and occasionally made suggestions on what might be a nice photo opportunity. She managed to capture so many moments just as they would happen in real life, toddler tantrums included. No posing or white screens to be seen. We managed to cram so much into the session and it was absolutely worth every penny. Kirsty didn't just take some pictures that day she managed to freeze time and document that moment in our family life forever. I'm so happy with all of our photos. Thanks Kirsty!


Nat + Family

Kirsty was a delight from the moment I opened the door to her smiley, friendly face. She was immediately one of the family and mucked in, helping with passing out lunch and being a constant source of delight to the children whilst taking beautiful, natural photos. It may seem an awkward thing to do - having photos taken whilst you carry on regardless, however, Kirsty made it so easy and charmed us all with her gentle kindness and encouragement. The photos were stunning, we love having some regular, family moments captured with the quality and finish Kirsty provides and it was so exciting when we saw the pictures. I can't recommend her highly enough and anytime I want a family or friend event captured with sincerity, grace and integrity, I will call upon lovely Kirsty.


The Burton Family

Kirsty is a truly lovely lady with an amazing talent. My shy toddler became Kirsty's best buddy within 10 minutes of her arrival. Kirsty knew exactly what to do to bring the poser out in her which I never thought was possible. She took the most amazing and treasured memories and made the whole day so fun and relaxed. After her couple of hours with us, it felt like we were waving goodbye to our friend, not a person we'd only just met that day. The photos she took were exactly what we'd wished for and bring back memories of an awesome day.


The Grimshaw Family

Kirsty has been a surprisingly important part of our family over the last few years.
She, first of all, did photos for my sister's wedding and they were so great that the next year we asked her to do the photos for our engagement and wedding.
She was such a calm person and really helped us to relax which has led to so many natural and beautiful photographs of us. She really embraced our idea for going to the coast and clambering around on rocks and running away from the sea for our engagement photos and really listened to our wishes for our wedding photos and delivered massively above expectations.
2 years down the line we asked her again to come and do a family photo shoot to celebrate my Mum's 60th birthday. She now had to deal with 2 extra toddlers as well as the rest of us who she now knows so well. The joy of asking Kirsty to come and do shoots for us marking different important events in our lives has meant that she feels part of the family which is reflected in her brilliant photos of us.
She really knows how to get the best out of a family and has huge patience and lots of fun with the kids too. We all would highly recommend Kirsty for weddings, engagements, parties, family shoots (the list is endless). She will make you feel relaxed and comfortable, listened to and will provide such natural and beautiful photos. We will definitely be welcoming her back to our family again in the future - we just need to find a good excuse!


The Bryant Family

Everyone who sees them raves about the photos you've taken for us. The children change in the blink of an eye and these photos REALLY capture them and their little characters. I already know a future me will love travelling back in time through these wonderful photos to such a precious time. We will cherish the photos forever and recommend you to everyone (as you know). It's always so much fun working with you and we are planning our next session already. THANK YOU x


The Mason Family

I have had three separate photo shoots with Kirsty now, each one has captured such amazing images of our family and each session has been so much fun and not at all staged as some photo shoots can be. She really captures the essence and personalities of us...can't recommend Kirsty enough.

The Mitchell Family

My family and I had a fabulous day with Kirsty. I was expecting it to be a stressful day (they do say never work with children or animals) but Kirsty put us all to ease right away. We not only had a fun day but the photos were amazing. I love looking at them up on the walls of my house.
