kind words and compliments
For me it is always a privilege to be invited into peoples family lives and to be trusted to capture the intimacy between parents and children, even if it is often only for the couple of hours of a photoshoot.
It becomes particularly special when clients return on a regular basis, from the first child's newborn photo session, recording the arrival of brothers and sisters and then watching the family grow over the years.
Earning a living as a photographer is great and made even more enjoyable by the appreciation I receive in return, here are a few of the kind words about my work, thank you!
"We wanted some photographs taken of the family that were completely natural and that captured the stage that we were at with two young children.
We found Daniel through the internet and were immediately struck by his approach to family photography. We were not disappointed. In fact we honestly could not have asked for better. The photography session lasted about two hours but was relaxed and easy even with a three year old and eighteen month old! We had the photos taken in a local park that had played a big part in our lives so the memories we captured were even more significant.
I had originally thought that there might be ten or a dozen photos from the session that would stand out and that we would purchase for our record but we absolutely couldn’t choose out of 90+ photos. They completely capture our family in a fun and natural way that genuinely reflects our relationships. We therefore decided to have Daniel create a book of the photos which is such a treasure to us.
We now have a beautiful record of a moment in time that we shall cherish, as the children are growing up so fast!
Daniel was extremely personable and easy going yet very professional. He certainly got the best out of the children and we would highly recommend his services. I cannot stress enough how many of the shots were exactly what we had hoped for!
Thank you very much."

"We have just had a family photo session done by Daniel and have been completely blown away by the results! All the pictures are amazing and really captured our kids’ personalities.
He was so easy to deal with and made the whole process very enjoyable and relaxing.
We looked around a lot before contacting him and know we made the right choice.
We really couldn’t recommend him more highly.
Thank you again Daniel!"

"We wanted to get some family photos with our 5 month old daughter, and we were so lucky to find Daniel! It was really easy to organise the photo session with him, and he even gave up his Sunday afternoon to come to our home for it. Daniel was really amazing on the day with our daughter, and we couldn't be happier with the photos - he is very patient and very skilled and managed to get some lovely shots of our daughter. We're so delighted with everything, we would definitely ask Daniel again when we have another baby".

"We have used Daniel for 5 family photo shoots spanning several years now and we are always delighted with the pictures. Shoots have included two different newborns and various unruly toddlers, which have left us as parents rather despairing of the outcome. However Daniel always manages to work his magic, and we end up spoiled for choice with some fantastic photos. As well as great photographer, he is a very laid back, patient and friendly guy to have around, putting everyone at ease.
Extremely good value for a fabulous product and service."

"Daniel was recommended to us by a friend and neighbour to do our wedding photos. He was absolutely brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him. We were both very reluctant models and he worked with fantastic stealth and a sense of humour; it was a real pleasure to have him around. He was not only very patient and kind with us, but also with the 25 children who never stood still. As an added bonus the pictures are really gorgeous!!"

"Great from beginning to end. Daniel is a very good photographer and a lovely guy; very good with the children too. Not to mention excellent value for money".

We first used Daniel for family photos for the birth of our first child. Since then we have used Daniel for first birthdays, our second child's birth, and we even asked for his services when my sister visited with her family from the US. Daniel is a great family photographer, not only is he very professional and the quality of his work excellent, but he's also incredibly personable, has a good sense of humour and, most importantly when working with kids, seems to have endless patience! He makes the whole process easy and enjoyable for everyone.

"A good friend at work has just had a baby and we are keen to get them something really nice - obviously a Doting Dad voucher, I couldn't think of a better gift!"
Maggie - Chiswick, London.
Daniel managed to make our family pictures look amazing despite all of us being jetlagged and an unruly 2 year old running around. The pictures miraculously came out great, and we have already framed many and shared with our families. Thank you Daniel for the memorable pictures!

"We loved your pictures, especially the ones of Noah with his great-grandparents. They’re something that we will all treasure as it's rare for those moments to be captured so well between generations. I look forward to receiving the memory stick and I am sure we will be calling upon your services again as Noah and Nina (the dog) both adored you."

"You've captured some stunning shots, once again, so we thank you very much. Actually I think we'll have an even harder job picking out the favourites, they're so good!
Ps also thank you again for your great patience and persistence!!!"
