Jo and Ross Jamieson and family

Our family has worked with Esther and Terry on four separate occasions to capture images around special dates for our family (including baby & young children, pre teens with dog at beach house, 40th birthday girls glamour day and an extended family anniversary celebration). We continue to work with Esther and Terry because they recognise that, even within the same family, the requirement from every shoot is different but the outcome must always be striking. Esther and Terry are consummate professionals with extensive experience and yet they manage to merge their proficiency with an innate ability to put their subjects at ease, making the shoot effortless, natural and the outcome breathtaking. We highly recommend Esther and Terry to anyone wanting remarkable images of life’s significant milestones.

Being a photographer myself, I have been a long time follower of Esther’s work. I have always said to myself that one day I would have a shoot with her, and finally I have! I chose to have a contemporary glamour shoot and the whole process exceeded all of my expectations! The pre-planning meeting with Esther was fantastic, she really got what I was wanting to achieve and helped to take the shoot to the next level by adding in her own unique vision. I was really nervous about the shoot – I am not used to being in front of the camera, and usually don’t like photographs of myself. Esther made the photography shoot effortless and fun. When it came to the viewing session I was blown away! I knew that Esther would do an amazing job, but the images really did exceed my expectations and they were perfect – exactly what I was hoping for!

I cannot recommend Esther highly enough – you will struggle to find a photographer with a style that is as breathtakingly beautiful and unique as hers. The work that she produces really is priceless.

The Nunn family

Your talent Esther, is truly amazing. What stunning photos!
We were blown away when we saw them and they are more than we could have ever imagined. We will treasure them forever. Thank you so much!

Francis and Pam

Esther is a true artist, her work is beautiful. She is such a pleasure to deal with and her warmth and professionalism made being photographed by her a joy. We absolutely adore our photo’s.

Alex and Rory Tomlinson

It can be a nerve-wracking thing having your picture taken, however under the quiet but playful direction of Esther, the initial self-consciousness and awkwardness of the kids disappeared and before long they were like two excitable puppies vying for her attention in front of the lens.
Having already experienced the magic of Esther’s creativity with my own collection of photos, I knew the resulting images of Jonty and Lucy were going to be something special so I was prepared to be moved. What I hadn’t counted on was how emotionally moved, not just myself but also my husband, when we viewed the images. The beauty and purity of our children that radiated from their eyes was captivating and had us quietly ‘welling’ up. What did Esther say or do to get that ‘look’?
To have in your possession anything by Esther and Terry is to have an absolute treasured moment in time – captured forever.

I first met Esther in 1998 and her incredible imagination and creativity has helped capture the most beautiful shots of my family and I over the years. I don’t think many people feel 100% comfortable or particularly photogenic in front of a camera, but Esther has a softness to her and her work that makes everything so easy whilst capturing moments that will melt your heart.

Dr Heidi Ward-McGrath

Esther is a true professional. I have always found I was comfortable to leave the creative process in Esthers hands. I could just relax and go with the flow. No hassels, no stress, no requirement on my behalf even to articulate what type of images we wanted. Esther has always exceeded our expectations. Her expertise and experience has the ability to draw out a creative story – she is a storyteller.

I trust Esther to represent our children in a precious way. She captures their innocence, freedom and love of life. When I look at their photos – I feel their joy.

Her images are original and a fine blend of love, art and magic.

Rebecca Fisher

Working with Esther is something I have had the pleasure of doing a number of times since I met her 3 years ago. She has a wonderfully open attitude to her clients’ needs. She approaches her projects with enormous enthusiasm and spirit. Most recently I have been privileged to work with her on a project that shows not only her tremendous professionalism but an amazing desire to conquer new and innovative creative heights.

The Blundell family

As a family, we have been lucky enough to have Esther take our photographs on several occasions and in different settings. While the thought of having family portraits taken of 4 little boys under the age of 7 was daunting, the whole experience of working with Esther was just lovely. She was delightfully calm and patient with our boys and it was fun. The photographs are beautiful and emotive, the images captured the very essence of our family. We are privileged to have had Esther take them.

The White family

We spent a lovely afternoon with Esther. Our three girls were so eager to perform – twirling, star jumping, climbing trees and trampolining I thought she’d never be able to get away. Esther demonstrated great reserves of energy, patience, adaptability and creativity and the results are absolutely gorgeous. We couldn’t be more delighted with our photos and DVD. They are memories made permanent and ones we will cherish for a very long time.

The Kearney family

My husband and older daughter (because she had to wear a dress) weren’t keen on the idea of a photo shoot. I was excited and I talked to Esther about what I wanted. The day arrived and Esther worked her magic, my kids had a ball and my husband relaxed. When I went to view the photos Terry projected them onto the wall. Esther’s brilliance shone through, the photos were stunning, so stunning in fact I was moved to tears, then I had to CHOOSE!!
The whole experience was fantastic and easy, Esther had translated my wishes into wonderful priceless memories of my gorgeous family that will be treasured for many life times.
Thank you Esther and Terry.
