"We had a fantastic set of photographs taken by Josh of our newborn daughter. The experience from start to finish was extremely professional and Josh was great with the baby. The pictures came out perfectly and there is such a wide range of frames and mounts for them it’s hard to choose!! We are very much looking forward to our next shoot!!"
