Review of Shutter Hire by Alexander Madge

I had Shutter Hire to picture my children just before Christmas and I couldn’t be any happier with the way they came out. Not only were the pictures great but the whole experience from first being in contact to the end result was fantastic. The shoot itself was excellent. my youngest wasn’t the happiest to be getting his photo taken but after a few minutes he was made to feel comfortable and was laughing and joking which made for some great pics. 5 stars from me, highly recommended!

We used Katrina in Nov 2015 for our little girls new born shoot, and so there was no question about using her to document her 1st birthday also! We had a cake smash shoot and Katrina was kind enough to do some Christmas shots for us as well.

Nothing is too much trouble for Katrina, whatever you want she'll try and accommodate, as well as making suggestions and trying things herself. She was an absolute saint with our little one, who decided that (contrary to normal) she did not want cake or to play with her food and had an epic meltdown!! Despite Seren making it incredibly difficult, Katrina still got plenty of brilliant and beautiful pictures!!

I can't recommend Katrina enough for children's shoots - she is brilliant with them, friendly, patient and professional. I look forward to using Shutter Hire again in the future!

I have had photos with Katrina through her local play centre visits. I was delighted with the photos of my newborn son and 6 year old son. We have had photos on several occasions and the results have been outstanding along with a very competitive price. I would strongly recommend Katrina to capture your special moments.
