Not just for girls! Prior to booking, I'd been a bit unsure whether I'd be a good fit for a fashion makeover photoshoot, but I needn't have worried. Andy went above and beyond to accommodate me and my wishes, using and embracing all the outfits I'd brought along with me, including those I'd just brought as back-up options. His assistants were a joy to work with too. More than anything, I just enjoyed being pampered and feeling important for a couple of hours - the photos were just a bonus … but still a very pleasant bonus - amazing, high-resolution digital images in a variety of contexts that I will treasure for years to come.

Originally booked a new-born photoshoot for my baby who was born in the second lockdown. Needed to rebook a couple of times due to further lockdowns, Andy was very accommodating with dates and timings. Very easy to find the studio, Andy and his team made myself, my husband and baby feel at ease and welcome. My baby can sometimes give people a hard stare of uncertainty, Andy was great with her, pulling funny faces and noises to keep her attention on the camera. At the viewing of the photo's, Andy presented them on a slideshow with beautiful music, made me cry. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and cannot wait to get our finished products. I would highly recommend Seven Springs Photography Studios.

We had a fantastic family shoot with Andy at Seven Springs. He was brilliant at entertaining our 3 year old with puppets and props, and we were all made to feel at ease. The photos were all fabulous and it was really hard to choose which ones to keep, but we now have some beautiful family photos around our home that we can treasure forever.
