I’m going to step out of the way and let some of my clients do the talking…
What were you worried about?
"I was concerned that the kids may not cooperate and it would be all but impossible to do the shoot. I was very pleasantly surprised! Nina put us all at ease and particularly the children. Both kids enjoyed the shoot and the photos are treasured memories."
"My biggest concern was the photos being too scripted or contrived. Nina’s general eye, her composition and instinct bring out a high concentration of natural results."
"I was nervous prior to the shoot as I normally hate having my picture taken. The reality was that Nina put me at ease immediately so that everything felt really relaxed and natural. I never felt awkward or self conscious."
"I was hesitant about the cost of professional photographs given that we were taking tons on our phones. However, the quality of Nina's photos are unrivalled. We were also able to get photos of the entire family, which almost never happens in our day to day life!"
What have you loved about having your images?
"The photos have been fantastic to share with friends and family abroad. What surprised me was how much the pictures really show the individualised traits of our little bub; the way she yawns, how she squints her face and stretches out."
"I love that the images you took capture a time I've almost forgotten! Those early days are so hazy as we were just finding our way as a family of 4. When I look at your beautiful images I'm so happy that you captured that moment in time for us."
"Without a doubt our favourite aspect was the degree which you managed to engage the kids in the shoot. We've also unabashedly leveraged the images to produce xmas ornaments, notepads and related swag for the family back home!"
"It was lovely to capture the kids in their natural environment at home with their toys, beds, and each other. It was nice for the whole family to share the experience together!"
What would you tell your friends?
"Nina was so accommodating and understanding. Even when my little one had a meltdown there was absolutely no rush or fuss she was very patient and kind. The photos are very natural and full of joy."
"I’d tell my friends that you make the children happy & everyone relaxed & you’re a lovely person too! It was like having a good friend photographing your children if your good friend was a very talented photographer!"
Thank you to everyone I’ve photographed this year, I’ve loved every moment of it.
