Catherine gave a very warm welcome to start with. We found her very polite and extremely organised with the events for the photo shoot of my little baby boy who turned 1 year old. She has lot of patience and was very creative with photo ideas as per my son’s mood and actions.We would highly recommend her. More...
Very happy with our experience with Catherine. Catherine is very patient and kindness during two hours photography. i definitely recommend this place
We had a great experience with Catherine. She knows how to get the best out of everyone involved, was great at soothing my little new born and delivered some wonderful shots, promptly, at a great price. Highly recommend her services. Parking nearby with Ringo was easy too which is a bonus. More...
Really happy with our experience with Chiswick Child Photography. Catherine immediately put us at our ease on arrival, had a clear plan in her mind about what might work best but always left it open to us to say our preference or give new ideas. Generally we always went with Catherine's suggestion (and are pleased we did) but we did try one of our own ideas which Catherine facilitated and it worked really well. The shoot's efficient (great for an impatient 8 month old!) and the results were fantastic - thank you! More...

I found Catherine's details on Google while searching for cake smash photography and working with her from start to finish was an enjoyable experience. From calling to make further enquiries from the beginning to the shoot on the day and the post-shoot experience, I found Catherine very helpful, professional and efficient and I loved that. We loved that the cake smash package came with the bath splash bit, the whole thing was an interesting and fun experience for us. Catherine was very accommodating with the family pictures as we were able to have our daughter take pictures with her Grandma which was special to us being our daughter's first birthday and Grandma's first grandchild as well so once again Catherine, thank you very much, that meant a lot to us. Our daughter was not her usual cheery smiley self at first as she was teething so she didn't take too well to the actual cake smash but she warmed up a lot for the bath splash and had a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyed herself so we ended up getting some really nice shots in the end. Throughout the process, Catherine remained cheerful and kept getting us to try different things to ensure we got really nice shots. Being a photo shoot with a baby, you have to work with Catherine to make the shoot work, but she did this with ease, again reflecting her experience at working with little people. She made us feel very comfortable as well. Catherine really knows her stuff and she was very patient, warm, friendly and professional. Catherine comes highly recommended from us. If you are looking for a fantastic photographer and a memorable, unique experience for your little one's first birthday, definitely look up Catherine. Thank you Catherine for making this a memorable, fun experience for us. We look forward to working with you again. All the best. More...

Catherine is a lovely woman, very professional and great with babies! Our son was 16 days old when we had our photo shoot, he didn’t settle initially but she knew just what to do, was very patient and got some beautiful photos. Editing and delivery was very quick, and to a high standard. I would definitely recommend, we will be back in a years time for a cake smash! More...
First class service from Catherine! We searched high and low for a photographer for our sons first birthday and Catherine was by far and away the best we came across- beautiful setting and superb photos- very quick turnaround too! Massive thumbs up from us!!
Catherine has been absolutely amazing. I did both my pregnancy and newborn photography with her and she made not only beautiful photos but more importantly had an incredibly personal approach which made feel very comfortable. She also has a special way of dealing with newborns who feel safe with her. The photos she took are gorgeous, artistic and intimate. I can highly recommend her for anybody needing pregnancy, newborn or child photos done. I will certainly do my future photos of my little girl with Catherine. More...

Amazing cake smash experience! Catherine was friendly and welcoming! Made us feel very comfortable and captured the perfect photographs for our sons first birthday! Lovely studio with natural lighting and amazing props.
Clean, professional and an over all extremely positive experience! Thank you! The cake provided was fresh, delicious and beautiful to look at! More...
Different packages of photos with fair prices and lots of options of accessories for the shoot.
My newborn baby wouldn't cooperate and sleep, but still in the 15 mins or so that he did, Catherine managed to take great photos and then we did some family photos with him awake. Got the edited pictures back so quickly, and the result was great, so much better than expected! More...
Catherine was very friendly and professional. We had a larger group of children with quite an age range and she was really good at getting them to engage despite the limited space we had. Catherine was very quick to respond to emails and we are really pleased with the photos we have. More...
We have some beautiful photos of our 10 day old daughter from Catherine who has loads of experience with newborn babies. It was a stress free experience. Everything was made easy. We were just on-lookers More...
Catherine is very friendly and professional. It was fun working with her. My family and I enjoyed our photoshoot with her. She seems to know what angle works best for each one of us. My son had a lovely chat with her during the photoshoot. I would highly recommend her. More...
Catherine is a wonderful photographer and always gets the job done beautifully. This is the third time I’ve used Catherine and I’m yet again I’m thrilled with the wonderful photos she has taken of our family. I would highly recommend her!
I had an amazing experience so glad I booked Catherine! I’m a first time Mum and I was very nervous about taking the baby out for the first time however Catherine made me and my partner feel relaxed and provided a calm atmosphere. She was so good with my baby and took some amazing photos! I will defiantly be going back to her when my baby is one :)
Thank you More...
We took our 3 month old daughter to Catherine and she was just brilliant. My little one was being difficult getting into certain poses and Catherine was just so patient and lovey and offered other suggestions. She is so warm and friendly and made us feel really at ease. We had a lot of fun & the photos came out a lot better than we expected! We highly recommend her & will be back for more photo shoots More...
I booked my baby's "new born photo shoot" and had to come back for his first birthday again.
It was a great experience and a fun and relaxed environment.
We recently took our 3 week old son to Chiswick Photography and had the best experience ever!! Catherine was so professional and very welcoming and accommodating. Her studio is cozy and warm for newborns and she was able to capture some of the most beautiful photos of our little bundle of joy! Would highly recommend !!! More...
Catherine was amazing. We had our baby boy’s first birthday cake smash and she went above and beyond our expectations. Catherine made us feel more than welcome, which helped our pictures come out amazing! I would highly recommend Catherine for all types photo shoots. The studio is spacious and set up beautifully! Thank you Catherine, your work is amazing x More...
A very positive experience had by parents and baby at our newborn photoshoot with Catherine. She made our 9 day-old totally relaxed and we got just the shots we had been excited about. Loads of choice in terms of style and poses and accessories, and the session was entirely unrushed. Very quick editing and image turnaround too. Altogether, excellent value for money and we’d highly recommend. More...
We took our daughter for a cake smash, Catherine made the whole experience so much fun!! We received our edited pictures later the same day and absolutely loved them!! So pleased, and would definitely recommend More...
We had a lovely photo session with Catherine who was so warm and friendly. She was very professional and fantastic with our 3 week old baby - clearly very experienced and patient with newborns and knows how to settle those beyond the initial newborn sleepy phase. She has a wide range of props in her professional loft studio but also happy to do natural shots too. Large repertoire of different poses for both baby and family resulted in a wide range for us to choose from. And all was reasonably priced too. Thank you Catherine. More...
Catherine is a very professional child photographer. I have had 3 photo shoots for both my children. She is very quick to email your photos from when you have your shoot. I would definitely use her again and would recommend her to anyone thinking of doing a new born photo shoot. More...
I would 100% recommend Catherine. She is very professional and delivers great quality pictures, but more importantly, her dedication and persistency to get the shot are amazing. Our baby was not easy, she was crying non stop and would not settle. Catherine did not loose faith and went well beyond the line of duty to soothe my baby girl and she managed to get the shots after 5 hours trying and way after my husband and I had already given up. I will be forever greatful for her patience and professionalism. Go and book your maternity of baby shoot now! More...
Catherine was an absolute delight to work with!!! She understood the theme I wanted and did all she could to make my dream come true for my sons cake smash photoshoot! She was very patient with my son and tried as hard as she could to get a smile out of him!! Got some very lovely clicks and we are so very happy! Highly recommended! More...
We booked this photo session a few months before my baby was born. Catherine was so helpful. Once the baby arrived Catherine was quick to offer us dates and on the day she was so patient and fantastic with the baby. Highly recommend and will definitely use her again in the future. Photos are amazing and original. More...
I was in two minds as to whether to book a newborn photography package as my baby was 6 weeks old and so I thought I had left it too late. I was SO pleased I did it. Catherine was incredible. She was fantastic with our little one, handling him expertly and ensuring that the session was baby-led. Catherine took superb photos that we are over-the-moon with (he looked so cute!), edited them brilliantly, and sent them through quickly. We can wholeheartedly recommend Catherine and the service provided. More...
We recently took our 6 month old son for the older baby shoot and we were really impressed by both the shoot experience and the final photographs.
Catherine was incredibly welcoming and took great care to ensure we got what we wanted from the shoot, both by asking for our preferences beforehand and by reviewing photos with us as she shot them. This was great and means we're very happy with the final results!
We were also impressed by how quickly the photographs were edited and sent to us to review after the shoot, and the speed at which we received the final products - great service all round! More...
We took our daughter for her first Birthday to do the cake smash and bath splash photo shoot, and we loved the whole experience. My partner and I were very happy with the photos Catherine produced.
She is a very lovely person and makes you feel at ease instantly, the props were amazing it was better than i had imagined. She did her best to alter the pictures to my preferences and sent me the pictures later on that day, which i wasn't expecting!!
She is very creative with the cake smash and the little bath was very cute with the bubble machine making it even more exciting.
I was recommended by a friend and I would certainly recommend her to my friends and family she did a fantastic job. More...
