Reviews

I like to share any feedback I get with prospective clients and other people viewing my website. It shows how much people value the job I do for them and the quality of the work I produce. I work incredibly hard on all my photo shoots to make sure my clients receive the best images possible. I do many photo shoots throughout the course of any one month. I don't ask for feedback, so the ones that do I am very grateful to. Please note I update my review page every couple of months.

Thank you so much for the photos. They are great...you must have done a lot of work in them to get rid of the rain drops. We are so appreciative of your time. We particularly like the photo of Mike on the swing with Scarlett and Scarlett peeking over the wooden climbing frame and Lucas leaning back on the swing. Thank you again.

Gill is the regular photographer for Lilliput Concerts, taking great pictures for us. She is always friendly, discreet & efficient, getting great shots of performers & audience alike whilst respecting the wishes of those who don’t want to appear in photos for our publicity. Whenever I publish a selection of Gill’s photos, our concert page hit rate increases.
— Kate Skeet, January 2015

I’m impressed you managed to get more than I had expected! The pictures are great, thank you. She must have been a difficult client compared to your other cake smashes! Thank you for your time again.

— Cassie Stevenson, December 2015

Quick work and fabulous. Thank you so much.
— Jackie Wharton, December 2015

We had a great family photo shoot with Gill recently. Gill’s studio setup did a grand job and the props on hand to keep two under-fives amused, engaged and photogenic, along with Gill’s talent of course, led to great results. Many happy family members once photo-presents were distributed! Can’t wait for a Summer shoot!
— Chris Hunt, December 2015

Brilliant fun, thoroughly enjoyed by all the family and some fantastic photos, thank you so much. Would thoroughly recommend. Gill is extremely professional, welcoming and made us all very comfortable, fast turnaround with fantastic photos, brilliant for the money, thanks Gill, can’t wait to do it again.
— Gemma Hunt, December 2015

We got such gorgeous photos from Gill and this was even with a stroppy toddler and a not too happy newborn! They are gorgeous and we really enjoyed the shoot. She made us feel completely at home and very comfortable. I’d highly recommend.
— Harriet Marsh, November 2015

We had a park session in November with our 2 year old twins and 10 month old and were delighted with the photos! Gill was patient and full of ideas and she was very prompt in getting the edited photos back. Great to have amazing photos but know exactly what you’re paying for-fantastic value.
— Roz McGree, November 2015

Gill took some photos of our 1 year old in the park and despite it being cold and drizzly the photos were gorgeous and are taking pride of place on our living room wall! Great service and great value, recommended.
— Gemma Bowen, November 2015

Gill is fantastic and very patient with wild children and dogs!
— Kellie Carmichael Thomas, November 2015

Gill was fantastic and really captured the true personality of both boys. My 3 year old had so much fun. She worked with him to create some awesome shots whilst capturing some lovely ones of my newborn despite him spending most the time crying. Would definitely recommend Gill, professional, friendly, very reasonably priced and fast turnaround.
— Lisa Hetherington, November 2015

I hired Gill to capture a special family event and after much searching on the internet I found her website and work to be the best. We were not disappointed! Gill was extremely friendly and made 3 under 3s feel at ease (as well as the adults!) The photos produced were perfect and are now treasured by every member of our family! Thank you Gill.
— Naomi Bugden, November 2015

Fantastic photos capturing all the best moments!
— Victoria Jess, November 2015

Really good pictures and was great on the day around our farm she was happy to wait for the perfect shot which isn’t easy when working with children and animals!! Very pleased with the results many thanks. Would definitely recommend!
— Andrew Hulbert, July 2015

I can’t thank Gill enough, she came out to our farm and took the most amazing “off the cuff” photos. I would never have thought she could make our children look so wonderful! We were really pleased with the price and how quickly Gill emailed the photos. I am so pleased, I am desperate for her to come back to take more. Thoroughly recommend!!
— Sara Hulbert, July 2015

Gill was welcoming friendly and we are delighted with our Father’s Day photos. We will use Gill for all upcoming milestones. Communication was easy and fast. Thank you.
— Naomi Adams, July 2015

Gill is wonderful - she put my kids at ease instantly and was able to capture some wonderful, natural shots of them. She even managed to capture our 10 week old puppy and 16 year old staffie in the same photo - no mean feat!! I highly recommend to anyone wanting fabulous family shots.
— Rachel Butler, May 2015

We won a competition with Gill at Mouse About Town. We opted for a 30 minute park shoot and the weather was just beautiful.

The pictures were turned around within days and I couldn’t be more please. we will definitely be using again and would highly recommend. Thank you once again Gill.

We booked an hour long cake smash photo session with Gill and it was so much fun! Lots of energy and our little girl was captured at her best with her cheeky faces and clapping hands. Gill’s studio is full of brilliant props and she was really easy to get along with and very accommodating too. Highly recommend!

We had a lovely time with Gill and she took some beautiful photos. Highly recommended.

We had a great time at the Mousehole with Gill who was absolutely fantastic with our spaniel Dylan. She put up with his craziness and we have some amazing (and unusual) shots of Dylan on his own and with us. It was the perfect Christmas present. Looking forward to putting them up in the house. Thanks Gill!
— Shoshannah Harper, February 2015

I took my 7 week old baby and tired 2 year old to Jill and I could not be happier with the pictures. Jill managed to make the shoot feel like play time for my toddler, he didn’t want to leave. I look forward to booking again in the future and would highly recommend Mouse About Town.

I can’t say enough good things about Mouse About Town! The time we spent with Gill was enjoyable, her pictures are absolutely incredible, you can’t beat her prices, her turn-around time was super fast!

Thank you Gill, for rearranging your diary in order to do a photo session for Lilliput Concerts on Monday 14th July. You captured the atmosphere of the event, from people queuing at the door, through the musical performance, to the lovely interactions of parents, grandparents and children. And your processing work was amazingly quick and efficient. Fantastic work.
— Kate Skeet, July 2014
