A really relaxed Cotswold family photo shoot …

“To mark my 40th birthday I really wanted to capture our family in photos but I hate having my photo taken! Tanli was amazing at making us all feel relaxed. She said it would be like going for a walk in the park and it really was!!! I can’t recommend her enough. We were thrilled with our photos and can’t wait to get the prints! Thank you Tanli xx”

So…. not a whole lot more I can add to such amazing words. Thank you Mrs G for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I love taking beautiful photos and capturing amazing heartfelt moments, but I also love hearing how easy my shoots are and how much my clients enjoyed themselves. It’s normal for most mums (and dads too) to feel a little apprehensive before a shoot and I’m sure thoughts such as “am i dressed OK, are my kids going to behave, are they going to smile, have I got enough bribery goodies on me, are the kids dressed OK???” etc…etc… run through every mum’s head. But here’s the thing, I use a really creative method of evoking natural reactions and emotions on my shoots without ever having to ask you to look at the camera and ‘smile’, in fact the word ‘cheese’ is a definite ‘no, no’ on my shoots. I’d rather your kids do or say pretty much anything other than ‘cheese’ :)

My shoots really are so relaxed , easy and enjoyable for everyone. If you’d like a family photo shoot and the thought of awkward poses and cheesy smiles makes you cringe, then I’m the photographer you need to call. No cheese allowed on my shoots!
