Love Letters


“Mary came out to our home to take some newborn pics of our gorgeous little boy Oliver. I can’t recommend Mary enough for her professionalism and patience in working with unpredictable childen. Mary whisked little Ollie away and told us to put our feet up and relax and she had no problems settling him when he stirred. We are definitely glad we choose Mary to capture this moment as her passion for photography (and babies) is evident in her work.”


Had photos of my darling newborn today with Mary and it was such a pleasure! She has incredible patience and a bag of tricks for settling newborns that got me taking notes! I thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting to capture very special moments… She certainly delivers and is lovely to work with 🙂


Oh Mary, what a tear jerker! We all sobbed the whole way through the video, listening to the music and remembering our lovely afternoon together with you. You captured what we have in our hearts and for that we sincerely thank you xxx


Dear Mary, you are a genius with the camera, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you guided us all through a very delicate photo shoot with patience, kindness and compassion. Your choice of location was perfect. Any photographer who can keep a smile on a three year old’s face during a photo shoot must be admired, and you did it with great ease. These photo’s are very precious to myself and the family. We are very grateful xxoo


We couldn’t have asked for more from our experience with Mary. She was extremely professional from start to finish and helped to create a relaxed atmosphere for our shoot. The result was a collection of natural and spontaneous family portraits that we are absolutely thrilled with.


Looking for a wedding photographer can be a daunting task, – when I spoke with Mary she put my mind at rest completely.  Mary is extremely calm, reassuring and so easy to deal with, she really tries to get an understanding of who you are and what you are looking for in your wedding photos.  She is talented and creative and has done a truly wonderful job with our photos.  We would highly recommend Mary who was good fun and who helped us to relax on our big day


SARAH – The outcome from the Beloved photoshoot with Mary was beautiful. I couldn’t have been happier. Not only did we end up with stunning photos, but the entire Beloved process brought my partner and I closer as a couple. It really helped us take the time to really appreciate each other. I’m so grateful. Thank you so much Mary!

MICHAEL – Let me start by saying thank you for the opportunity for Sarah and I to take part in your work. The photos turned out fantastic and all the comments I have been giving have all said how you captured our love for each other perfectly! It was extra exciting for me to hear some of the nice things and receive the gifts from Sarah for she is not as open and as ‘public affectionate’ as me, but that is one of the things I love about her. I thought the whole concept of the beloved photo shoot is a great way to capture the REAL emotion and on spot reactions and affections. You are so suited for this style of work being such a people person and lovely hearted.
