“Tori documented it to perfection.”

I felt so lucky to have just had my second homebirth with my third child. The house was chaotic when Tori arrived – birth pool semi-deflated in the kitchen and the sofabed out in the lounge so we didn’t wake the older two in the night. I was still in my nightie and hadn’t yet had the opportunity to shower, the children were in their pyjamas with bed-hair and we definitely didn’t think to offer a cup of tea! But she was totally relaxed about it all, didn’t stay long, didn’t ask anything of us – just snapped a few pictures as the five of us lounged around in our newborn bubble. I was amazed by what she was able to capture with such ease and little equipment, without any of us posing or even getting out of bed. A baby is such a little gift, and the moments fly by too quickly, I don’t think you could ever regret having them beautifully documented, exactly as they were, and Tori did that to perfection.

“She is amazing with children”

We couldn’t have had a better experience with Tori. She was so professional and responsive during the planning of the shoot. And the actual shoot, which I was kind of nervous about because I’m not fond of photos, was such a blast!! She is amazing with children. She formed a bond with mine early on in the shoot and then was able to capture us during a great day out. It was so easy and fun. And the best part? The photos are so, so gorgeous. I’m having trouble picking which ones to get! Thank you, Tori. You are a true talent and professional.

“We are absolutely over the moon…!”

Tori flew out to join us for a day on holiday in Portugal, and we are absolutely over the moon with the resulting pictures! We so rarely get any pictures of us all together on holiday other than the odd posed one, but now we have a great collection of captured memories ranging from playing on the beach to wrangling a 3-year old while applying sun cream – all equally precious. Everyone felt very comfortable with her from the start, and she caught some wonderful moments when we were unaware the camera was even pointing in our direction. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tori to anyone looking for a photographer, she is fantastic!

“She managed to remain almost completely unnoticed”

Tori has now photographed two christenings for our family, one 3 years ago and most recently last month. We have been delighted with the pictures both times. Tori captured the special moments in the service whilst managing to remain almost completely unnoticed and therefore not in any way imposing. She also patiently arranged our requested posed photos at the end, ensuring we captured all the group shots we had requested. We’d highly recommend Tori if you are considering a photographer to capture all the special memories from your next function.

Fran C - St Albans christening photographer

“Skilled at capturing really joyful candid moments”

Tori took photos of our family when our son was just 2 months old and they are gorgeous! I’ve never had professional family photos done and it was such a treat. She is so skilled at finding the right light and capturing really joyful candid moments. I loved both her portraits and candids of us. She also works really quickly so that there’s no worries about whether the baby will lose his cool or not. Tori is wonderful and I highly recommend her!!

“Captured all our perfect imperfections”

We were in such a whirlwind when you came to the hospital and not feeling our most beautiful in our sleep deprived states so weren’t sure how we would feel about the photos. However, it has been so precious to have these images to look back on such a brief but important part of our journey becoming a family that all seemed to happen in a bit of a blur. Thank you for capturing all our perfect imperfections and these earliest of memories.

“She has a fantastic way with children…”

I have no hesitation in recommending Tori. We had a fun and relaxed shoot with her near my home in St Albans, and she was great at putting the whole family at ease- I had been a bit worried that having photos taken in public would be embarrassing, but after five minutes it just felt like a normal day at the park, which resulted in some beautiful candid shots. She has a fantastic way with children, and was very patient and playful with my uncooperative toddler and sleepy baby. Usually I am behind the cameraphone, so it was lovely to get some proper photos of the whole family together that I actually want to hang on the wall, and now our extended family also want copies for their walls! We will book Tori again in the future- the children grow so quickly and it is so nice to have pictures like these to look back on.

“A relaxed and authentic feel for what family life is like”

We are absolutely thrilled with our family photos.  They were exactly what we wanted – a more relaxed and authentic feel for what family life is like (without the tantrums).  Tori has such a warm and approachable personality that works perfectly being a photographer.  She slips right in like one of the family so we all felt very at ease.  We will definitely be getting more family shots now that we have a new family member.

Kim P - Kent family photographer

“The shoot itself was comfortable and enjoyable”

Tori has provided us with some once in a lifetime photos of our new born. The shoot itself was comfortable and enjoyable; you barely noticed her snapping away. And the photos are just fantastic. I would encourage anyone to use Tori to get photos that you will cherish forever.

“Tori has worked with our whole family for years”

We are SO happy with the photos of our son’s Christening. Tori captured the day perfectly and managed to get some fantastic pictures of the family – not that easy with lots of children involved! She also helped us create albums which we gave to grandparents who were delighted to have a beautiful keepsake. Tori is warm, professional and discreet. She is great at taking both formal and in the moment shots. Tori has worked with our whole family for years and we would highly recommend her.

“The most heartwarming photos”

Tori came to Trent Park to do a family shoot for us.  Amidst the muddy terrain she managed to capture two toddlers, a baby, a 9 year old and several chatty adults, into the most heartwarming photos.  The photos Tori took now hang with pride of place on our lounge walls.

Dan B - Trent Park family photographer

“You relaxed us straight away”

Wow, we are absolutely delighted with the wonderful photos that you took for us, especially considering how demanding our two year old was that day! You relaxed us straight away and the end result are some beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you and we will certainly be using you again in the future.

Jo B - Cambridgeshire family photography

“We love the photos so much”

We would highly recommend Tori to anyone wanting to capture some happy family memories.  She immediately put all of us at ease including our then 15 month old daughter.  Tori managed to capture some beautiful, natural photos which we can cherish for years to come.  We love the photos so much that we are now planning on carrying out another shoot with the newest addition to our family!

Fi S - St Albans family photographer

“Such a playful and fun experience!”

Tori’s style is really easy going and professional, she connected with both our boys quickly and they responded very positively towards her. We love the photos she took, they capture Ted’s and Hector’s characters and relationships with each other and us so perfectly. It was such a playful and fun experience for them and we were delighted to have photos taken outside in a lovely spot in St Albans. Thank you Tori!

Nisha J - St Albans family photography

“Tori has a great manner with her subjects young and old”

We asked Tori to shoot some portrait photos for a family birthday, with family from one to ninety years old. She let us spend time together to capture some informal moments, then managed to gather us for some more formal ones. We’re thrilled with the results.
Tori has a great manner with her subjects young and old, which gets the best out of them. Her customer service was perfect, with the collection quickly edited, shared in digital and printed formats, and attractively packaged. Thanks so much for your help.

“Looking forward to getting you booked in to do more soon!”

Thank you so much for capturing such fantastic photos of us and our little one, Tori! You put us all right at ease and we absolutely love the shots you captured for us and will treasure them!! Looking forward to getting you booked in to do more soon!

Becky H - Welwyn family photography

“A warm and relaxed photo shoot!”

A warm and relaxed photo shoot! Tori is lovely and easy to get along with. We got a beautiful set of proofs, so lovely we couldn’t pick just a few and had to get the memory stick of them all! Thank you for a wonderful experience, we would thoroughly recommend you to anyone.
Rob H - Luton family photography

“She captured our cheeky, smiley boy brilliantly”

We asked Tori to take some photos of us with our 8 month old and our families following our son’s dedication. Tori did a fantastic job! She captured our cheeky, smiley boy brilliantly and took beautiful pictures of the whole group as well as our various family members in smaller groups. Various family members, myself included, don’t particularly enjoy having our photo taken, but you wouldn’t know it – we look relaxed and natural. Thank you Tori for beautifully capturing what was a very special day for us.
Helen C - St Albans family photography

“She has a wonderful empathy with the subjects, putting everyone at ease”

Tori has done two wonderful photography shoots for our family. The first was me and husband and our two children when they were young. We did some shots in our garden and in our home and then went out and about to capture the family in more natural and playful poses. Tori even managed to humour my cross-patch 3 year old daughter into smiling although the one with the ‘big-bottom’ lip pose is one of our favourites as it captured her personality at that time! We loved the quality of the shots and the happiness in the photos. She framed them beautifully for us too and they have pride of place. The second shoot was a more complicated and busy shoot for my mum-in-law’s 70th birthday party in Essex. Tori was calm, organised and clear in her instruction always with a smile too trying manage 16 of us in various group shots and then many other shots in a more reportage style. What you get with Tori is a natural and creative representation of the event or that moment in time – she has a wonderful empathy with the subjects, putting everyone at ease …especially tricky children or shy adults and gets the best out of them –  you will get pictures you’ll cherish forever. Thank-you Tori

“Photos of our family that perfectly capture our personality”

We are a lively family with 4 boisterous boys so catching us all naturally on camera is no easy task. Thank goodness for Tori, who spent a lovely few hours at our house doing a Lifestyle shoot. Tori’s charming, easy manner put us all at ease, and her professionalism and skill as a photographer produced just the results we wanted: beautiful natural photos of our family that perfectly capture our personality and lifestyle. I highly recommend Tori for her professionalism, personal service and great results.

“Lovely natural photographs”

Thank you so much for our photos which are gorgeous, we are delighted with the results. You made us feel at ease in front of the camera and had lots of patience with our daughters which resulted in some lovely natural photographs. We have several of your photos framed on our walls and have received lots of compliments. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and using you again for future photo shoots.

“Tori was incredibly discreet, active and creative”

Tori helped me with a corporate networking event in August. She was prepared, worked out the best places to take pictures from, and the brief was candid shots as well as shots of the event proceedings and speakers. Not only was Tori incredibly discreet, active and creative but she also then got the pictures to me very very quickly so that I was able to use them for social media and they are absolutely wonderful. Lots of different styles and she captured the essence of the event but also some amazing shots of delegates, so much so that I struggled to work out which to use first! Thank you so much Tori, highly recommended and it was lovely working with you.

“Tori really captured the intimacy between us all”

We used Tori for a family shoot. She initially came to the house and put the children (and my husband) at ease immediately. Her style is relaxed reportage so we got on with a few activities and she snapped away. Tori really captured the intimacy between us all. We later met at a bluebell site and once again Tori gave us minimal direction but she got the most beautiful images of the children and some fantastic natural family shots.

I was delighted with the results when they came through. We’ve framed many of the shots and people always remark on them. I’d have no hesitation recommending Tori for any of your photography needs!
Laura G - St Albans family photography

“Tori made the session fun”

We booked a maternity shoot with Tori as a way to document this milestone before our little one arrived. I don’t enjoy being in front of the camera and always feel super awkward but Tori made the session fun and I felt relaxed and not at all goofy in front of the camera. The result, beautiful shots of my partner and I that now take pride of place on our wall at home.

“The best moment driven photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with”

It’s obvious to anyone that meets Tori, that she is passionate about what she does and also that she is a gifted photographer. However her stand out quality for me, is her ability to make every person she photographs feel incredibly special and important – setting you at ease, and capturing that “perfect shot”. Tori has photographed many things for me, but it was on our recent family shoot that I was even more impressed by these qualities. Tori coordinates an entire family (and dog!) seamlessly, and she has a special talent for engaging children in what she’s doing – even letting them photograph with her camera! Tori has an amazing ability to capture those candid moments, which the kids just love! Tori will capture those special looks and silly things you do (even the kids stropping), which makes the photos she produces so real and authentic of that point in time – she truly is the best moment driven photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Highly recommended!

Wendy G - Hertfordshire family photography

“An insight into our everyday world…”

It was so lovely to have some beautiful natural pictures taken of me and my daughter (I’m usually left out of photos as I’m the one taking them). I loved that they capture our closeness and an insight into our everyday world, playing and having fun together. Tori made everything so relaxed. Heidi had great fun and I didn’t feel self conscious at all. I didn’t really notice the photos being taken. I’m thrilled with the end result. Thank you Tori!

Mel O - St Albans family photography

“Made us grin from ear to ear the moment we looked at them”

Thank you Tori! I don’t know how you managed it but you were somehow able to transform a dull rainy day into a super-fun experience. And the gorgeous pictures of us and our son are just full of love and laughs – and made us grin from ear to ear the moment we looked at them. You made sure to show lots of variation in the photos – activities, groupings etc. And we really appreciate this because it feels like there is something for all of us in different ways across the whole selection of photos. Thank you!

Ben H - London family photography

“She is more like a friend along for the outing than someone there to photograph it”

We love the photos that Tori took of our family in Bushy Park! It was a freezing day and she managed to put both us and our 2-year old at ease very quickly, getting some fantastic shots in the limited time we had outside.  Tori is very relaxed and friendly, and gets the job done without you even realising she is doing it, she is more like a friend along for the outing than someone there to photograph it. She was very flexible when it came to arranging a time to meet, working around weather and unpredictable nap times, and she is always very responsive.  The frames we ordered from the shoot were wonderful Christmas presents for grandparents, and everything arrived quickly, and beautifully packaged. Tori was a wonderful wedding photographer, but I think she may be an even better family photographer! Thank you!
Andy F - London family photography

“We wouldn’t even consider looking for anyone else to take family photos

If you are looking for a family photographer then you need not look any further! The first time we met Tori, was when we were looking for a wedding photographer. We instantly clicked and needless to say she got the job. She then captured our special day so perfectly that within 18 months we met up again for her to take photos of our baby daughter. The many photos she has taken for us have pride of place around our home and we wouldn’t even consider looking for anyone else to take family photos. Her photography skills are the best in the business and I cannot recommend enough that you get in touch with her. Thank you Tori x
Heather M - Hemel family photography

“She lets everyone be themselves in front of the camera”

Tori’s photos leap off the page, because she’s a wizard with a lens and because she lets everyone be themselves in front of the camera. Tori knows how to handle grown ups and toddlers, to get the shot she wants without being bossy or tiresome, and she doesn’t take hours to do it. Our last shoot was in the bluebells near Wheathampsted and the photos are magical.
If you want to treasure your photos, the albums are a must; Tori’s album of our wedding is the first thing I would save from a fire. I’m glad she talked me into getting it.
Zoe B - Hertfordshire family photography

“Tori has a lovely way with children”

I used Tori for a family shoot. We went to the woods, and now have gorgeous natural pics that we treasure. Tori has a lovely way with children in that she is just there taking pictures without them knowing. My youngest daughter is very shy and hates having her picture taken but thanks to Tori, we have gorgeous pictures of both girls. She even helped the girls look for ‘stickman’. Thanks Tori, can’t thank you enough!

Emma H - Hertfordshire family photography

“You really caught her cheeky little smile and personality”

Tori, I just wanted to say thank you so so much for the wonderful photographs you took of us recently. It was our first photo shoot as a family and you really helped put us at ease. The photos are amazing and really capture this period of our Abbie’s life. You really caught her cheeky little smile and personality. Thank you so much again, and we’re looking forward to booking a session in next year to do it all again! Love Pete, Cath and Abbie

Pete H - Nottinghamshire family photography

“Yet another set of amazing photos”

Just a quick note to thank you so much for taking yet another set of amazing photos of the boys.

We can’t believe how many great pictures you took of two energetic preschoolers! You have really captured them and their personalities. We will treasure these photos forever.

The picture book is also stunning quality.

“I’m amazed at the expressions and emotions she has captured”

We have been lucky enough to have Tori photograph us for 3 years. She did our bump shoot during pregnancy through to age 2 family portraits. She takes shots I would never think of and they are fantastic!  With a young son, I’m always taking photos with my phone but Tori manages to capture these every-day moments that become treasured photos. I’m grateful to have these to look back on. Thank you Tori!

“Tori was great at getting the best out of all of us”

I booked a family photo shoot when my daughter was 5months old. It was a pretty cold autumn day and we had booked our shoot outside so that we could use the lovely autumn colours as a backdrop. Tori was great at getting the best out of all of us and really read the situation well with a little one taking centre stage. She was kind, patient and ultimately took some great photos of all of us. We absolutely love them!

Dave T - Hertfordshire family photography

“We can’t wait for the next photo session!”

We absolutely love the photos Tori took for us at home. It really captured family life with a 5 month old baby. Tori is warm and put us all at ease. We can’t wait for the next photo session!

Xena A - Bedfordshire family photography

“The photos look fun and natural”

Tori did an informal family photo shoot for us with our two boys. She did a really good job of making us feel relaxed and keeping the little ones happy so the photos look fun and natural. We were really happy with how the photos turned out.

Scott C - Hertfordshire family photography

“I have never had such amazing photos – really!”

OH MY GOD!! They are fabulous thank you so much! I have never had such amazing photos – really! We are absolutely delighted. Thank you Tori! Will be booking you in for the wedding!!

You are a talented photographer who has the ability to know exactly what we wanted and made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole process from briefing to delivery.  You captured the moment and mood to perfection and delivered first class results.  I have no hesitation in recommending you and will use you time and time again as a reliable, efficient and exceptionally creative photographer.

Caroline D - BatMitzvah photography

“Exactly what I needed”

Tori did some portrait shots of me to use for work purposes. They were great and exactly what I needed. She also did some family shots of us and the children – I loved how she immediately engaged our 2 young boys and captured their spirit. I’m delighted with these photos.
