Alix has recently done a photoshoot for a friend of ours, which we arranged as a gift. She has been unbelievably kind and considerate of the family's difficult circumstances and has gone out of the way to accommodate them. The photographs are absolutely beautiful and really capture them at their best. We couldn't have been happier.
We are the family mentioned in the previous comment and we second that assessment :-) Alix took some lovely photos with a minimum of "sit here, look here" direction, and we are very pleased with them indeed. She was very willing to be flexible to choose a time and place which suited us.
We first met Alix when she photographed a family wedding and I was impressed by her friendly and caring approach as well as the stunning images she captured of a special day. When looking for someone to photograph our newborn she was the obvious choice, I knew we would have a special shoot and I wasn’t disappointed. She took time to get to know us and our baby and made the whole experience something to remember. Editing was very speedy too so we didn’t have to wait too long to see the results. We will treasure the photos, thank you!
Birth Photography: I wanted the Birth of my second child captured forever, in a moment frozen in time, that I can look back on time after time. Our baby was born in a pool at home. I thought it would be over whelming with a team of nine including myself and a photographer, but overall it went swimmingly and Alix made herself at home which put me at ease. She is organised, focused and professional and the images are absolutely stunning.
Thank you for the most beautiful wedding pictures I have ever seen, anywhere. Thank you for being so supportive on the day; looking back... the wedding would have been a mess without you. I am in awe of how you effortlessly float around with ease, and capture even the most camera-shy of guests in photographs that are worthy of Time magazine. These are not just photographs, they are art. I cannot thank you enough and will recommend you to everyone. The feedback from the guests has likewise been amazing. Thank you so much.
Alix made the whole family feel at ease. She found out what my eldest likes and brought along relevant toys and played games with him, he really enjoyed himself. The photos are beautiful and very natural.

If you want natural photos of yourself and your loved ones, whatever the occasion, then please get in touch, I'd love to hear from you. I capture the emotions, the relationships, the uniqueness of each of you as well as your connection to each other. No stress, no pressure, no rush. From single portraits, to proposal, engagement, weddings, maternity, birth, babies, children, families, including pets of course, I give you photos to remember each moment.
Photography for me is about finding beauty in the world and celebrating each day, each person, I shoot form the heart. My mother loved photos. She took us to photographic studios where we posed awkwardly. She has many photos on her walls but every time I look at my photos I cringe. They might be good images but they're not me and I remember having to pose to look like the photo they wanted, they were not about me, more about the photographer. I hated the sessions. The photos I do like from my childhood are those my mum took of us kids playing or dreaming, but I don't have any photos of my parents and us, since they were taking the photos.
I want you to be happy! We'll talk beforehand and on the day so I understand what you want and make sure your photos reflect who you are and that you get what you want. My style is mostly natural, but I also have an artistic vision and an eye for classical light as well as being able to bring lights and create different effects, so I offer my ideas and skills and you decide what works for you! We'll take time for the photos of the two of you alone as newly weds! No awkward posing. Fitting with the flow of your day, making the most of the venue and the light but not keeping you away from your guests for long.
