A review from my lovely client Mabel which can be found on Yelp;
Rose Grace Photography popped up in my Facebook feed one day and I was immediately drawn to the amazing portraits of children. Having recently welcomed Harris into our lives I was keen to get professional photos to mark the start of family life.
When I saw opening for Autumn weekend sessions at a great price I messaged Angela to secure a spot. Communication was prompt and answered all my queries. Nothing I hate more than when someone doesn’t read my query properly and gives a half hearted answer. We agreed a date and I made a secure payment via bank transfer.
Angela’s communications were friendly and professional which built confidence for us. Her work really does speak for itself when you see the pics on her Facebook page. I especially love the fact that the images are yours to use once she’s edited.
In October, particularly in Scotland, the weather tends to be wet. Angela suggested venues/locations and also pointed out to consider weather. We eventually decided on the Winter Gardens in the People’s Palace at Glasgow Green. It’s indoors but with a beautiful backdrop for our first family photos.
Angela arrived on time and we had a chat to get to know each other. She talked us through what we could do and also let us decide what we wanted. She was great with baby boy and we just felt so at ease with her. She came with a suitcase prop so that we could get shots of Harris on his own. She wasn’t shy about getting into any angle or position so that she got the perfect shot. Her instructions were great and she got us to pose without it feeling too staged.
To complicate matters we had also arranged to meet up with Harris’ little cousins and aunt so that we could also spend the afternoon together. Angela was more than happy to incorporate them and took it in her stride.
The session lasted about 2 hours and it just flew by. Her lovely manner and professionalism meant we got the images we wanted. She listened to us and worked with us to ensure we were happy.
At the end of the session Angela set out a timescale for receiving the photos (3 weeks which is more than reasonable). She also asked permission to preview images on Facebook. I love the fact she didn’t presume she could share and asked first.
