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!

Katrina was so patient with our 7 day old little miss. Ensuring she was fed, burped and warm enough the whole time! She didn't bat an eyelid when Phoebe weed all over her jeans and pooed in her hands. She spent ages perfecting each pose and then going back and redoing it when Phoebe moved. The edited photos are absolutely amazing and we are so pleased with them. Couldn't recommend her enough and we will definitely be going back as our little girl grows up. Thank you so so much!

EVERYTHING, from the newborn gurgles to the wedding laughter.

I have many skills that I believed would be wasted in an employed position. Being independent with a love of travel and meeting new people meant that a photography business would compliment my lifestyle.

I am reliable, flexible, creative and I LOVE a challenge.
