Elaine did my son’s newborn shoot as well as a Christmas shoot. We also had her do our family photoshoot. She is amazing with little kids and managed to capture the most beautiful photos of our little boy. We are also a big family of 11 people and we do a family photoshoot every 2 years, the shoot with Elaine is to this day our favourite memories. I recommend her to all my friends and family.

Elaine….The most humble, nicest, perfection and passionate for her work person. Yesterday was exactly 2years (22 March 2016) ago that we have shared a very special memory Our Engagement WITH Elaine, she can keep secrets. My now husband arrange everything with her me not knowing what was waiting on me. That same day we decided that she will continue this journey with us and she captured our wedding on the 29 April 2017.

The amazingly talented Elaine. We are beyond blessed to have had 3 magical shoots with Elaine. A newborn shoot for our first born, cake smash shoot and recently our maternity shoot for our second baby. Elaine is so patient and kind and her passion shines through in every photo she takes. She is professional, yet makes one feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera and has such a warm and inviting personality. I would recommend her in a heart beat without any hesitation! I will forever be grateful for the memories she has captured especially for us!
