The pre-portrait consultation was really helpful in providing ideas for the styles of portraits available for a pregnancy photo session and guiding me on what to wear. During the photo shoot, Peter & Mary interpreted my ideas and came up with some good ones of their own. They created a lot of variety with different backdrops and worked well together to make sure there were some good portraits for me to choose. I was really happy with the results and would certainly recommend Sheldonlea. Business response: Thanks, Jenni. It’s good to know that you also had a great time. We can’t wait to see your newborn baby.
Being photographed professionally by Sheldonlea is a whole new experience – and we loved it! Peter and Mary you were patient and understanding with our four children, creative in your approach and fun to work with. The range and quality of our wall portraits and photographs were fantastic. We are really pleased and would certainly recommend you to our friends. A great effort and yes, we wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again. Business response: Pleased to know that you had a great experience. We had a ball photographing your 4 children. Just let us know in a couple of years when you’d like an update.
Getting family together these days is always a challenge with school and work schedules, but we’d used Sheldonlea before and knew we were in for a fun time. We’re a casual family so wanted a look that was natural – but with attention to detail. The photo session went smoothly and we had plenty of variety to choose from. Mary was just great with the kids and we all enjoyed the experience. We got some great expressions! Our portraits truly are priceless. Business response: Thanks, guys. We also enjoyed your company. Glad to hear you were also pleased with your portraits.
From the friendly, relaxed and professional manner in which our first phone call was handled through to the pre-portrait advice, photo session and selection, we found the entire process enjoyable and rewarding. You took a genuine interest in us and our needs and the quality of our portraits and our expressions are very “us”. Thanks for making our experience so pleasant. Business response: Nice to photograph such a lovely couple. Pleased that you love your photos.
We had the best time! Thank you for our beautiful portraits – they are suberb! Peter and Mary you really care about your clients and we felt you wanted to create something special for us by the yacht harbour – a location which means so much to us. You both worked so well together to capture our daughter’s cheeky side. You obviously love children. Sheldonlea Studio was recommended to us and we’re so pleased we came to you for our photography. Now we can’t wait for the wedding photos! Business response: Engagement photos are always special. We wanted to make this memorable and fun! Nothing better than a great location by the marina.
We are so grateful for our stunning engagement photos. We were impressed with your research into the location, your professionalism during the shoot and your dedication and diligence with preparing our storybook. You made us feel at ease through the whole process and have managed to capture this special moment in our lives. You are both exceptional photographers – but you both have qualities which set you apart from the crowd. Mary has an eye for design and detail which allows her to recognise any finer details that need adjusting, such as a fringe that is blowing the wrong way in the breeze or a shirt that has become untucked. Peter also understands we are all different and gave great advice on what clothes and colours would photograph best. We really appreciated the care he took to make sure the technical aspects were covered so that we looked our best. You complement each other both and as a couple and we are really glad to have found you. We are looking forward to the wedding and have confidence that you will look after us and get some great shots. Business response: Capturing your special relationship in photos was a privilege. We’re pleased you noticed our attention to detail because we really care about every client. We are over the moon that you love you photos! They will remind you of happy times for years to come.
When Peter and Mary asked if I would mind being photographed in my work gear I thought “why not?” It can only be a bit of fun … and it actually was! As Sheldonlea had photographed my family only a few weeks previously, I felt quite comfortable – a bit like in those charity firemen calendars. Considering I’d just come off shift with very little sleep, I think they captured me quite well. Business response: Great to hear you enjoyed the experience, Paul.
An opportunity recently arose for my partner and I to have some professional photos taken. As we had never before been photographed as a couple, we appreciated Sheldonlea’s clothing and makeup suggestions as we wanted a natural look. On the day of the photo shoot we felt comfortable and relaxed and Peter and Mary’s photography style was non-intrusive. We actually enjoyed having our photos taken. We are both really happy with the end result and love our portraits! Business response: Thanks for the comments, guys. It was great working with you both.
Sheldonlea Studio photographed our wedding a few years ago and everyone had a great time. So when our baby daughter arrived, we saw it as timely opportunity to have an updated family portrait. We’re fairly relaxed people so felt comfortable catching up with owners, Peter and Mary, who helped put everyone at ease. Mary is great with babies and made sure everyone looked their best. We got some great portraits for all the family as some of our relatives live overseas. We look forward to having some more portraits taken around Christmas time. Business response: Good to photograph your new baby. Your photos are just beautiful!
This was the first time I had used Sheldonlea Studio – the atmosphere was lovely and they made me feel welcome and relaxed. Peter and Mary did a great job, very professional, and helpful with choice of natural looking positions and clothing choices. They made my daughter and I feel very beautiful and really captured our wonderful relationship in the most natural way. I love my canvas wall portrait and would happily recommend them to any of my friends. Would definitely consider using their services again. Business response: Mother and daughter portraits are always special. Wonderful to hear you both enjoyed your experience with us.
After a Styling and informational Session with Peter and Mary, my partner and I were really looking forward to our photo session. We were not disappointed. The time and effort they put into ensuring we had the best photographs and experience that was possible was appreciated. It was obvious we were working with professionals. We received our portraits just recently and were very happy with the end result! The clarity and quality of the photos were excellent. The best part is that we looked and felt natural. Grade “A” experience! Business response: It’s always exciting to photograph couples who have such feelings for one another. We hoped we captured some of that electricity in your special relationship.
