With a self-conscious teenager, a child with profound disabilities, a slightly out of control 3 year old and another little one with a temperature all sitting on a roasting hot August day, we felt Ashley would be up against it. He was unfazed; his charming manner put the children at their ease and he has produced the most heart-achingly beautiful pictures, capturing each child’s individuality perfectly.

Ashley has a tremendous way with the kids and succeeded in getting several great shots of the three grandchildren who are not the easiest to photograph! The quality of his work is outstanding and the choice of natural backgrounds rather special.

I’ve gone a bit mad – I didn’t know where to stop…. the big framed photos are fantastic! Many thanks for all your time and hard work getting the photos right.
Tessa, East Lothian
Just had photos done of my 3 grandchildren. Very difficult to get all 3 looking in the same direction at once but Ash managed it with great humour and I’m absolutely delighted with the results, highly recommended.

Ash and Anna….. I’m thrilled with the pictures, so pleased, I don’t know where to begin in choosing what I want as I want them all!!
Jenny Linzee-Gordon, Edinburgh
The shoot was very relaxed and Ashley did a great job with Theo. We are sad to have left that house but the photographs will give us an everlasting memory. When we have another professional photo shoot we would be delighted to have you take them again. Feel free to give us a reminder in a year or so!

Ash made the whole process fun and managed to get both our boys and the dog to relax and look their best – all at the same time!
Sarah Guy, Stirlingshire
Ash is brilliant with children (in fact he’s great with people – and animals – generally). He got them all at their best and there was no effort or stress involved for us so the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable.
Claire Lithgow, Renfrewshire
Ashley was great with the children which made the whole day so much less stressful for us and it shows in the photos how happy they were. The end results were great and we were thrilled. They have been much admired.

Ashley photographed our 3 children on a very wet day in August and captured the fun that can be had whatever the weather. Everyone looks great in the photos and we will treasure them for years to come.
Henrietta Gimlette, East Lothian
The pictures are now hanging on the wall for everyone to admire and I am delighted with them – we will appreciate them for years to come. Thanks for all your hard work.
I have used Ashley since 2012, and his photos are so special that we now have a photo shoot of our family every year, including portraits of our four children. I can not praise Ashley high enough for his patience, his ability to make our children relax, and his talented eye. He also puts together the most beautiful photo albums for us every year, and these are invaluable books that are loved by parents, grandparents, and children alike.
