Corporate photo shoots

” I know Kate from her previous career and was delighted to work with her again in her photographer role. I now have a selection of excellent business photos to use for professional conference materials - a huge improvement on the security photo that I was relying on before. Kate makes a photo session very relaxed and works with you to produce whatever kind of photo you want. I strongly recommend using her" Janet Davies

"Kate Lloyd transformed what could have been an ordeal - having one's portrait taken - into a fun and pleasurable experience.

I needed a range of portraits for promoting my business that could be used in a variety of contexts to convey different messages. Kate understood the requirement and coached us with much good humour to achieve the desired result. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate Lloyd as a photographer for family shoots or for business PR work." Julie West

"She is great fun and a delight to work with and the results are just fabulous..I'm delighted with them and the only difficulty I have is which ones to choose as they are all great. I'm a keen amateur photographer myself so am difficult to please in this area, so well done Kate! I'm delighted to give her the highest recommendation possible.” John Clare July 2011

 

Newborn baby Shoots

” Kate is a true professional. She spent many hours with us in our home trying to get the perfect shots of our 6 week old baby. She is personable and very patient! We loved the final photos and would recommend Kate to anyone looking for photos of their new born baby" Jenny and Paul Best

"Kate photographed Tom and Harry when they were four weeks old. She made them so comfortable that they slept through the whole shoot without stirring once. Kate was patient and spent time capturing the right angles, lighting and images. I love my photos and have them displayed in my hallway for all my visitors to admire. I'd recommend Kate to any new parents looking to capture precious first photos". Jo Gibson

” I was really excited about Edward's photo shoot with Kate and it certainly lived up to my expectations. Edward was a little unsettled throughout the shoot however, Kate was very patient and stayed the majority of the day. Kate had a very gentle manner with our son and was very skilled at getting him into tricky positions. I was delighted with the photographs Kate took and choosing just a few proved more difficult than I had first thought! I am looking forward to displaying the photographs in our home and am sure they will be greatly admired" Jenny Butterfield

” There are not enough stars here for Kate, we would give her 100 if we could! We had 2 sessions with Kate to photograph our newborn daughter. The first day Kate spent 5 hours with us, & baby screamed for approximately 4 hours & 45 minutes of that! Kate did not seem remotely phased by this, she was amazing with baby & put mummy & daddy very at ease. Nothing was a problem. Despite managing to get some great shots (we have no idea how she pulled it off!), Kate offered to come back for a second attempt, during which baby behaved beautifully & Kate captured beautiful images of our little star. Kate's photos are simply stunning but what really sets her apart is her obvious love of babies & how wonderful she is with handling them & calming them. Not to mention calming a very anxious new mummy! Kate is a lovely lady & a wonderful photographer. Like we said earlier - 100 stars!! Thanks Kate! The Benton family"  Nick and Kylie Benton June 2012

We were very happy with the photo shoot. Kate had some brilliant ideas and was more than patient with our baby boy. We found Kate very professional, friendly and extremely caring toward our baby. We would certainly recommend Kate to our friends and family. Mirka and Matt December 2012

Kate was just fabulous at Poppy's shoot: patient, intuitive, gentle and warm. She knew exactly what would work and what she wanted to achieve and yet there was plenty of room for my creative input and ideas. We are thrilled with the finished results and will treasure them for many years to come. Fiona Humberstone February 2013

Family Photo shoot

Flying the nest

"Kate came to our house to take pictures of my daughter the summer she was 18. I wanted a natural picture of Georgie before she left home for her Gap year.

She enjoyed the whole photo shoot enormously and Kate involved the dogs and her older brother too. Tom enjoyed it so much he had to have his own photo shoot a few weeks later.

When choosing the photos it became more about the pets than my children, they all looked so handsome.

Kate’s photos are truly magical, I feel like they are in the room when I look at the pictures, not at University or thousands of miles away. It’s all I can do not to cry."

Jane Eastell September 2012

Kate is the perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism and it was easy to build a rapport.  I love the photos we chose and would definately recommend Kate and will be asking her to help us when the occasion next arises.

Clare Dancaster December 2012

Thank you Kate for the most amazing photo book I have seen in my life it's a beautiful treasured memory :) Jane Blackbeard-Powick May 2012

Family and 3 year old

“We're absolutely delighted with Kate's photos of our daughter and family. Following an easy, relaxed morning in our garden, Kate was able somehow to capture our 3 year old with the most incredible expressions. Arabella doesn't normally stand still for a moment and certainly doesn't want to stop for photos, but Kate's amazing ability to engage with her and make the whole session stimulating brought about incredible results. Both mine and my husband’s eyes have filled more than once at the results. When the photos were delivered, Arabella said "I loved it when Kate came to play!" ... which sums it up, a great fun play session in her eyes! Beautifully framed, thank you again Kate we couldn't have imagined how easy you would make it and how perfect the photos would be.”
