Joanna is absolutely amazing at what she does 💗 I had my first photoshoot with her 8 years ago with my son when she got her very first camera and I always knew she had a talent for photography!

We had a glitter shoot yesterday with my 4 year old daughter at her studio in midhurst, (which was so nice and warm and cosy)
Joanna was amazing with my daughter, made her laugh and feel comfortable as she was a little shy to start with! Couldn’t recommend her enough, her work is absolutely incredible she’s professional and reliable! Great communication too! Thank you so much Jo well definitely be back soon.

Paige Jefferies

I highly recommend Joanna, we had a newborn photo shoot done and i am extremely happy with everything from the setup and props to the kindness and the amazing photos. She was very welcoming and very gentle all the way through our photo shoot which put me at ease. I love that you can change the cut outfits and have different photos with different outfits. I absolutely love all the photos you took of our little boy. I can’t thank you enough for them all and I will defiantly be back to use you again.

Amy-Jane Gilbert

I highly recommend Joanna, we had a newborn photo shoot with her and we were thoroughly impressed. She had so many props and outfits to choose from and we got a good variation of photos. We loved her little studio, she was really patient and made us feel at ease. We got some fantastic photos and would recommend her to anyone!

Emily Johnson

We contacted Jo to photograph our newborn baby boy - despite leaving it very late to book (about 2 hours after I booked I went into labour!) she fitted us in with no problem. Our baby was 11 days old when we took him along and the whole experience was brilliant. The photoshoot took place in a lovely warm, cosy room, perfect when they are so tiny and newborn. Jo was brilliant and so patient when he needed to feed or have a nappy change etc.

The photos themselves are absolutely fantastic and had a quick turnaround - we can’t wait to stick them up in the nursery!

Thank you so much Jo for providing us with some beautiful memories!!

Lucy Reevely

Just viewed the pictures from a great session with my little boy, I liked them so much I bought every
single one! Such a high standard of work, thanks Joanna, we will see you again for another session in October!

I cannot recommend Joanna highly enough. I had a maternity and newborn package and the photographs are incredible. Joanna is a very talented, knowledgeable photographer and her attention to detail is second-to-none. I need to arrange a few more special occasions now so Joanna can capture them.

Emily Brooks

We received our photos from Joanna today and we’re over the moon with them all. I can’t thank Joanna enough for all the hard work she has put in to making the newborn photo shoot and ordering of prints such a smooth process.

Illy Goodall

Joanna was amazing and made me feel right at home. She talked me through the exact process of how the shoot would go and answered all my questions. I was ill after the birth of my daughter so had to change the date at short notice, however Joanna was happy to arrange a new date to keep my shoot for my little girl! I was allowed to pick any outfit choice I wanted and Joanna never made me feel rushed in any way. I would highly recommend!!!

Anthony Hutchins

I cannot rate Joanna enough. We booked a Newborn Photoshoot with her back in early September, our daughter was 3 days old! Joanna was fantastic, she was great with our little one, and made us feel so comfortable when we were there. The studio was warm and inviting, and she had 100’s of different props and clothing there was too much to choose from! Her mum helped with the undressing and dressing or our daughter and brought us drinks and made us feel so welcome. We received our photos this week and we cannot thank you enough – they are ABSOULTELY beautiful.

Highly recommend Joanna for all types of photography!

Best wishes, Ant, Chloe & Maddison! x

Alesha Hay

We loved our photoshoot of our newborn twins. The photos are absolutely beautiful and Joanna had a really good selection of props. Very lovely to have the photos for memories of our babies being so tiny. Thank you very much xx

Michelle Fox-Reynolds

Fantastic Photographer very calm and very natural style xxx

Henry Ascoli

Joanna is not only talented and very creative with her photography, but she also puts you at ease in front of the camera. She has just done our engagement photoshoot which we're really pleased with - it's the first time we've had some really natural photos of us that aren't selfies! I can't fault her professionalism. Highly recommended.

Michaela Glue

Thank you so much for the photos they are amazing x

Miranda Prudente

Really happy with our shoot and photos. Joanna was so professional and patient even when our 20month old didn't want to have a bar of being photographed!!!

Rachel Emily Dixon

I had the wonderful opportunity to win a photo shoot on my beautiful baby boys 5 month birthday �. The pictures are amazing (I so want to buy all 160!), the setting was beautiful with great props and back drops!

Joanna went with my little boy continuously capturing him all the time (babies are very hard to shoot! Lol).

I honestly could not be happier with the service and end result.

Gemma James Purser

We had a winter family shoot with Joanna in December. We are so delighted with our photographs, so much so that we had to have almost every one as we couldn't thin them out!! Joanna was absolutely wonderful and so patient with the children, particularly our often temperamental 3 year old! We had copies done for family as Christmas presents, and they have all commented on how beautiful they are and how well their personalities have been captured! 
Thank you so much Joanna, we will be back too see you again as the children grow up. Xx

Laura Bannister-Hodkinson

I'm delighted with the pictures that Joanna captured of my 8 month old son, they exceeded our expectations! The shoot was fun and relaxed, Joanna's communication pre and post shoot was excellent and the overall service was very prompt and professional. I would highly recommend and will most certainly use Joanna again in the future. X

Charlotte Millins

We had a really lovely winter photo shoot with some great photos 😄 Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere 😄 Would really recommend and would use you again 😄Thank - you xx

Becky Thorpe

We are really pleased with our family pictures by Joanna. She was very patient with our toddler and offered lots of props to entertain her.

Holly Davies

Wow, just wow!!

I knew you were a very talented photographer but you have blown us away with how amazing these photographs are!

I literally cannot praise you enough or thank you enough for taking these.

Our little girl is precious to us so to capture this early age in such a beautiful way is just fabulous.

Is there anyway we can pay extra so we can have a digital copy of all the images please? There isn't a single image we don't love. We would hate to lose any of them.

I have 2 friends, one who had her baby yesterday and one still in labour, I cant wait to show them your work and pass on your details. You really do have a special talent as capturing babies can't be easy, but wow....you do it so very well.

Thank you so much again for spending the time to take these wonderful portraits.

Becky Harris

I had a shoot with my 3 week old daughter and my son, Joanna is lovely and we felt so at home in her studio, and receiving the pictures today they're beautiful! Thank you so much we will definitely be coming back for more! Xx

I have been to Joanna on two separate occasions for my bump and newborn photos. Joanna is incredibly talented with her photography and I have instantly fallen in love with every picture that Joanna has taken ! She makes you feel at ease and is always so considerate making sure that you are comfortable and 100 % satisfied with the work she has produced! I have already started to arrange a third trip back to see Joanna & I am sure there will be more! I really can not recommend Joanna highly enough.

Jo Simmons

Thank you to the lovely Joanna and her mum for the fantastic family photo shoot she did for us on Easter Monday . Such a welcoming relaxing atmosphere in the studio . The photos and scrap book are amazing and we will treasure forever . Looking forward to the next time for more memories captured.

Angela Pegg

I can honestly say I was thrilled with my family photo shoot with joanna, she is so calm and confident and she will happily take any ideas you have for a picture aswell as suggesting some you probably wouldn't think of. She makes you feel comfortable and the photos themselves are fantastic, unlike some photographers joanna leaves in even the slightly different shots she's taken when she sends you the files and I personally like non perfect pictures so to have some Real shots of me and my family that are not perfect aswell as the professional shots she's taken is exactly what I want as I can then choose myself the pictures I like.

Steph Batten

Joanna is an amazing photographer, very easy to get along with and great fun. My husband and I love the photos she took at our wedding, both formal and informal. We would definitely hire her again. 
Thank you Joanna! Xx

Gemma Louise Smith

Joanna is just superb! An absolute diamond of a lady and a fantastic photographer! She photographed our daughters christening and she just amazing! She's Extremely friendly, great at directing and so confident.. I was amazed that she had managed to have our photos ready for us to view the same day!! I would definitely recommend her to others and I shall be using her again for future events! I love how she engaged with everyone there she has a relaxed feeling about her! It was as if she was apart of our daughters special day rather than just a photographer there to just do their job of taking photos...

Hazel Allfrey

I recently had my baby bump shoot with Joanna which I would highly recommend to anyone else thinking of doing one. I discovering her through Facebook, local advertising, word of mouth and friends experiences with her and i definitely wasn't disappointed. Both Joanna and her assistant made me feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. She was so well organised making me feel confident about having some great photos to choose from. She was also very quick with editing and sending me my photos. 5 star photographer = one very happy client.

Sami Kavanagh

My children really enjoyed having their photos taken with Olaf today! Joanna did a really good job despite them not being the easiest clients ;) I'm so pleased with the photos and the bargain price it all came to.

Sarah Gainsborough

Joanna did a fantastic and fun shoot for my 2 children! Both loved it, the frozen back drop worked so well and my daughter (and son) loved getting Into character for the photos and dressing up. Jo made sure she had music for them to sing and dance to, and had such brilliant, unusual ideas to create some stunning pics. Thank you, beautiful memories captured xx

Toni Barrington
