COTSWOLD BABY PHOTOGRAPHER
REVIEWS AND KIND WORDS
C Spence 12 June 2022
We had an utterly brilliant experience with Joanna, and would absolutely recommend her to any parents wishing to have a newborn photography shoot (or any of the other options for maternity or toddler photoshoots on her website).
Our baby was rather upset, and so the photoshoot took much longer than anticipated, but Joanna remained patient, helped soothe our little one, and persevered through lots of tears on his (and our) part! She was so gentle in helping to put them into different outfits and poses for the different set-ups, gave us brilliant advice on techniques to help settle them to sleep, and was really kind with us both. As new parents it is natural to worry that you are doing something wrong, but Joanna reassured us that we were doing a good job, and even now I think back to the advice she gave when we're having a tough day.
The studio is beautiful and comfortable for parents and babies alike, with lots of space for different set-ups which Joanna will put together based on your ideas and wishes. We were even able to incorporate some flowers from our garden, and my wedding veil into a few shots. The outfits available for the babies are just stunning and there are so many options, I almost wish we could have dressed our little one in these all the time!
As for the photographs, I am utterly in love. Joanna managed to capture our little one perfectly; their slight sassiness (even at such a young age), their smile, and their wonderous little gaze. The poses she achieved were lovely, the props used just beautiful, and the editing brilliant-down to a little suggestion of steam rising from a 'cup of tea'-adorable!
It was an absolutely brilliant experience made possible by an excellent photographer who is marvellously talented. We are about to book our next photoshoot with Joanna, and really excited to do it all over again.
If you are looking for someone able to capture a really special time in your little one's life do consider Joanna, I can't recommend her enough.

We had the best photoshoot experience with Joanna yesterday. Joanna made our 2 year old feel very comfortable during the shoot and kept her entertained with lots of toys during our breaks. The pictures we received were of outstanding quality and very professional. Absolutely in love with our family photos. This was a memorable experience and we are so glad we made the choice to have our photos taken by Joanna.
Joanna is a lovely and very talented lady! Would highly recommend her!

Cannot speak highly enough of the pictures Joanna took of our new daughter Sophie!! They are STUNNING!! Joanna’s studio is beautiful and welcoming and all her props are amazing. Joanna made us feel so relaxed, which is saying something for first time parents of a 4 week old! The quality of the editing is amazing, we know for sure we will be going back to Joanna in future to capture more memories of our daughter! Thanks again Joanna :)

Joanne makes every new mother feel relaxed, comfortable and special. She is confident and caring in her approach, we are so happy with the photos and really enjoyed the experience. We have now booked her for the christening.
G Williams 19 August 2021
Would really recommend Joanna's photography, for both baby and family shoots. Her home studio is lovely and relaxed, she talks through the shots you want and she only has one client a day so there isn't a rush to get the photos.
We've also had Joanna photograph our daughter at Westonbirt Arboretum as a toddler, the session was fun for us and our daughter and we were so pleased with the finished pictures.
J. Thompson 27 July 2021
We had our photoshoot for our newborn baby boy at 9 days old. Joanna made the whole day and experience thoroughly enjoyable, exciting and put us new parents at ease. The atmosphere at her studio was calm and soothing and was such a fun day out! This is before even seeing the breath taking photos that she was able to capture. I would highly recommended Joanna and if you want breath taking photos you need to book in straight away! Thank you again and we will be back for more! x

We can't recommend Joanna enough. Her home studio was so well prepared for the shoot - warm, cozy, white noise playing and such a relaxed environment and all the props ready to go!
She had planned the session for our wants and did some sibling and family pictures too which we love.
Every picture is so well composed and we love them all, they are so beautiful.

Joanna took some incredible photos for us that we will treasure forever. We got lots of different poses, including a few family shots and they look amazing on the wall. We had a really nice day with her, she is so welcoming and patient. She sent us the pictures the next day so very quick turnaround. Can’t recommend highly enough.
One word of warning - the room is very warm as it needs to be for baby so dress appropriately!

We traveled to Joanna for a photoshoot for my newborn baby girl from Oxford. I am a first time mum and I was rather anxious about what to expect and how I could cope with someone else holding her and moving her around so much. I was pleasantly pleased with the experience I had. Joanna was very welcoming, warm and experienced. She knew exactly what I was feeling and how to make the whole thing enjoyable for us whilst keeping my baby happy the whole time. The results I got were amazing. She put so much effort in to each prop and set up. Also made sure she got the best photo not rushing at any point. I would night recommend her services and I will definitely be using them again myself.

We traveled from Oxford to have our family photos taken, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Joanna is a fantastic photographer, she is calm, patient and really puts in the effort to make your day an experience. she is passionate about her work and fair with her prices. All the photos taken came out brilliantly, I highly recommend everyone looking for professional photos to contact Joanna, you won't be disappointed.

We had a lovely pregnancy photoshoot in March 2019. Joanna was really kind, professional and took breathtaking photos. We had photos taken in the studio and outside too. Even my partner told the photoshoot was fun and was much better than he expected. She finished the photos really quick and shared it with us. She made us so comfortable, so we had photos in a silk material nude taken.
I would go back to Joanna anytime if I would like gorgeous photos

I can't express how grateful I am to Joanna, she took so much time and effort preparing ideas for our maternity photo shoot. The final pictures completely blew me away, Joanna has such an eye for capturing the best poses and lighting and the photos came out absolutely stunning. I am so pleased with them and very happy we found such a talented photographer to capture this treasured time in our lives, she was so easy to get along with and we had great communication via email before the photo shoot and during the shoot she made me feel so comfortable, really genuinely lovely lady and super talented. I can't wait for our newborn photo shoot in January. Thanks Joanna for all your hard work, our family and friends have all commented on how outstanding your pictures are.
We would highly recommend Jo after having our newborn photo shoot with her this week. We loved every single idea she had planned for the session, the autumnal theme was perfect to celebrate our autumnal baby and it just happens to be my favourite season! Not only were her ideas amazing, her attention to detail perfect and the set ups stunning, but she was so patient, friendly and lovely to work with. She gave up her day for us and there was plenty of time for us to feed and comfort baby when needed with no pressure at all. The photos were also edited and sent to us extremely promptly after the season and are truly stunning. We will definitely be back for more photos when he gets a bit older.
Jo was absolutely fantastic with our newborn, Lily, during her photo shoot. Lily, being a typical newborn, didn’t want to sleep at the right times or be in any positions for photos. Jo worked with care and patience until she had the exact photos of Lily that she wanted. We couldn’t be happier with the end result! A perfect memory of our fast growing newborn that we can treasure! Thank you so much. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jo to anyone.

We had such a lovely afternoon with Jo and her daughter(who was a superstar chaperone.)
We loved our outdoor photo shoot with our boys, and Jo and Ruby were so easy to get along with, and fitted in with snacks and milk feeds. The singing and clapping and acting like crazy ladies was most definitely worth it as Jo captured our twin boy’s unique and different personalities in her photos. We’ve had numerous compliments about the images and are delighted we marked their 1st birthday with a personalised, and tailored shoot! We will definitely be back to Jo, if she’ll have us. We highly recommend Jo.

We had both a maternity and newborn shoot with Joanna and the photos are wonderful. Joanna has an instantly likeable personality which makes it easier to relax and get some natural shots. Having a child of her own means she is very understanding of their needs (and yours as a new parent!) and we have some lovely memories from the days spent with her as well as the photos to cherish forever! We would highly recommend her.

We had a Maternity Photoshoot with Jo and it was great. I'm very camera shy and don't normally like having my photograph taken, but immediately Jo made me feel at ease. She has a fantastic eye when it comes to making decisions on where is best for background/lighting and makes sure the pictures look incredible. First pictures I've ever truly liked of myself and we can't thank Jo enough. Looking forward to having a newborn photoshoot when baby arrives x

We had a fantastic time spending the evening with Jo capturing some family photos! Jo is incredibly talented and the photos she captured were simply stunning. She made everyone feel totally at ease, and even managed to keep our baby happy and smiling after her normal bedtime and during teething! Thank you so much Jo- can't wait to hang the printed pictures up! Highly recommended!

We had a fabulous day with Jo; the photos taken are fantastic, we're very pleased!
We wanted to capture our newborn but also to have some family photos with our first child. Jo suggested a combination of indoor photos where she had some fantastic newborn props and outdoor photos for the family shots in the beautiful setting of Westonbirt.
Jo's attention to detail and determination to get the perfect shot proved worth it; that and her timeless approach on the day provided a relaxed and enjoyable day for all the family.
We would and have already highly recommended Jo to all our friends and family xXx

My family and I had a brilliant family/newborn photoshoot with Jo. It was in a relaxing setting and Jo really took the time and effort to get the best pictures. We were absolutely thrilled with our pictures! We'd like to thank Jo for all of her time and patience, we couldn't have hoped for better results. We would most definitely recommend Jo.
We had a great day with Jo last week and we are really delighted with her pictures! Jo took the time to help me settle our baby when needed, and get the perfect shot, even in tricky lighting on a miserable January day. Plus we got to see the results that evening! With a newborn herself she has a great way with babies, and her home is inviting and relaxing - easy to feed between photos. Would highly recommend and have done so to many friends and family

Had a wonderful photo shoot with my daughter. Relaxed and enjoyable & good company. The session didn't feel rushed, Joanna took the time to understand what we liked & the environment was very baby friendly, (warm & with nursery rhymes to keep the little one entertained)! Really pleased with the photos and would highly recommend.
