Kind Words



“I have been fortunate enough to have Melanie East photograph my children at various times over the last 10 years.  We have her images of them both at home and at work and they are a constant joy – both as beautiful pieces of art and also as timeless reminders of our growing children. Without realising this was happening,  Melanie’s images have woven themselves into the fabric of our deepest memories of our growing family.  Melanie has an enormous skill in capturing the essence of each child both individually and in a group.  I have no hesitation in recommending her very highly.”

Dr Tim Sephton, Chew Valley

“We can not recommend Melanie highly enough. What a professional. We were in awe watching her at work – a baby whisperer. Her calm manner and gentle ways allowed the session to be relaxed and enjoyable for our twin newborn babies, and us the parents. The boys were her priority throughout the session, she very much followed their cues as to what she did and when.  As Melanie worked, she talked everything through, giving us understanding and reassurance. The babies needs were priority, she constantly checked the temperature of the room and Harry and Jack’s safety was number 1 on her agenda.  Melanie clearly loves her job and each and every baby that she has the pleasure to work with.”

“Thank you so much for such an amazing session.  I just could not believe how you managed to lull Isabelle into a deep sleep and then pose and photograph her so beautifully. We felt so relaxed, and the cookies and coffee were much appreciated. Looking forward to coming to choose which ones we will buy – it’s going to be a difficult choice!”

“Thank you again for the beautiful photographs of George.  I’m so glad I had him photographed by you, and that he slept for you! We will treasure these photographs forever.”

“Receiving the photographs back from our recent family shoot, I was absolutely spell-bound. Gorgeous images that truly capture the essence of my family. I would highly recommend Melanie to anyone – you won’t regret it. In fact, you will wonder why you hadn’t done it sooner!”
