“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.”
“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.”
Shannon & Paul
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.
Andrew & Cherie
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.
Brooke & Doug
“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 were recommended to us and we’re so pleased we came to you for our photography. Now we can’t wait for the wedding photos!”
Dan and Kaitlyn
“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 professionally 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.”
Natalie and Daniel
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.
An opportunity recently arose for my partner and I to have some professional portraits 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 very comfortable and relaxed and Peter and Mary’s photography style was non-intrusive. We actually enjoyed having our photos taken.
We are both delighted with the end result and love our portraits!
Eldad & Nura
I used the services of Sheldonlea Studio a few years ago and was delighted with the results!
When the opportunity arose again to have my children updated for our new home, we really looked forward to some fresh photography.
The whole experience was fun, the kids felt comfortable, and the photos looked natural. I love how my children’s personalities were captured in our well decor portraits and storybook.
My children had fun and the portraits turned out beautifully! Peter and Mary are a great team who are easy to get on with. They also understand how to capture a contemporary, yet natural look.
I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.
When an opportunity came our way to have our family photographs updated, we thought it a good idea.
We loved the whole experience – from the clothing suggestions, the photo shoot through to the viewing – relaxed and professional.
We asked for natural looking portraits and everyone who’s seen them agreed Sheldonlea really captured our expressions.
We’re all really pleased with the results!
Jo & Paul
“Thanks for the amazing photos you took of us together! Peter and Mary, you both helped set us at ease as well as select the best outfits.
We just want you to know we were very impressed with the quality and creativity of our portraits and felt they captured how we truly felt about one another.
We found the whole process enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding.”
Katey and Simon
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.
Seth and Kelleigh H.
Peter and Mary did a great job, very professional, and helpful with choice of natural looking positons 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. I would definitely consider using their services again.”
Traci and Oceana
“I would like to thank you for the wonderful corporate photographs you recently created. The photos are amazing and I am extremely happy with them.
“They are exactly what I needed for my website and other promotional material. You made the whole process easy.
“From the moment I contacted you – you listened to what I needed and organised a time within a few days for me to visit your studio. The shooting session was quick and fun – and you set me at ease.
“I can’t believe how quickly you had the photos ready for me – it was just amazing!
I wish everything in business was that easy, quick and professional.
“I would only trust my corporate image to Sheldonlea as your experience, professionalism and creativity is second to none.”
“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 possible 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, quality and lighting were perfect and the poses looked and felt natural.
Grade “A” experience!
