Linda G Photography came with a high regarded recommendation by my sister in law who used Linda to photograph her son as a newborn.
My first phone call with Linda was delightful. I instantly felt a connection with her which I think is important for a photographer/ client relationship. Linda's friendly and gentle nature put me right at ease and knowing she was a mother herself gave me comfort that my baby would be in safe hands. My son arrived 3 weeks early and Linda was able to fit me in amongst her busy schedule.
The photo shoot day was here and so was the hottest day Sydney had seen in years. 45 degrees and what felt like 100% humidity.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a 'Welcome Baby Frankie & Sister Chloe' sign which put a smile on my face and already I begin to appreciate Linda's attention to detail. Walking into Linda's studio I was absolutely blown away with the amount of unique props and backdrops she had throughout the room. Fresh fruit, cold drinks and sweet and savoury cakes were all on offer to my family and I.
Linda had pre selected at least 5 different custom styled setups to photograph. Each carefully thought out with complementing backdrops, baskets, bowls, wraps, and props. Linda handled Frankie with such soft and gentle hands not waking him once. As the day went on I admired Linda's creativity, professionalism and passion for what she does. I remember mentioning many times to Linda that day that she had the best job in the world where she was responded, "I really do".
While nursing Frankie, Linda took some beautiful candid shots of us that she later told me were a special gift to me. They ended up being some of my favourite images.
At the end of our session I had mentioned to Linda if I was able to select one image now to use for a birth announcement. Linda had the image edited and emailed to me within a day.
The package I chose was the 'Newbie Newborn Session'. That included 2-3 set ups and 8 high resolution, edited full colour images provided on a USB. I was able to view all my images in my own private profile through Linda's website. There I selected my 8 final shots. They were all so gorgeous, it was extremely difficult to choose. I received all my images in a beautiful little package. To my surprise, Linda had included 2 extra images she knew I would love at no addition cost. It's when gestures like that, truly show it has been done from the heart and not run by the money.
My overall experience was beyond anything I had imagined. I have referred Linda to many of my family members and friends who have all had the same exceptional experience I had. If I am ever blessed again with another child I would without a doubt book Linda to do what she does best.
I came across Linda's photography work on Facebook. Initially, I inquired for newborn photos. As I was pregnant at the time, Linda asked me if I considered maternity photos. I hesitated at the beginning, due to how I was feeling toward the end of my pregnancy; I am so glad I did them!
She made me feel so beautiful at a time where I didn't. Having never had professional photos of myself, Linda made me feel so comfortable with the entire process and really took her time. I was so impressed by Linda's work including her high attention to detail and subsequently hired her for newborn and family photos, and recently my son's christening.
Linda's photography images are of an exceptional quality that truly captured my family's precious moments. Her service is second to none and communicating with her is so easy, as she is prompt with responding to any questions. In addition, Linda goes out of her way to
make her client feel at ease and goes above and beyond what is expected.
I have no hesitation in recommending Linda G Photography to anyone seeking a photographer, as Linda is an amazing person and photographer who is exceptionally talented and truly passionate about her craft.
Linda is definitely the photographer you want to capture your newborns photographs! She is truly passionate, creative and this translates in her work - you won't be disappointed! Linda was very professional to deal with, has a great eye for detail and truly a lovely photographer to deal with.
She was responsive to emails, calls and any queries I had before and after the Photoshoot. Her studio is set up immaculately and you feel right at home upon arrival. The room was temperature controlled and my son was comfortable for the entire session. Linda handled and cared for my son just like her own whilst getting him prepped for clothing/wrap changes. She was so wonderful to watch whilst capturing my son's expressions. I really got to appreciate what actually goes on behind the scenes at a Photoshoot! Now the fun part, trying to select the images done on the day! They were so vibrant and gorgeous!
Linda had all the images on a USB in a beautifully presented box. You can just tell she prepares this with great love and joy! I loved the packages she has on offer and I was so happy with my final images she edited.
They are just a beautiful keepsake that I can share with my whole family. As a new mum, the whole experience was so relaxing and I will be recommending Linda to other new Mum's looking for a newborn photographer! I look forward to working with Linda again for my family photos and my son's first birthday. Thank you again Linda, one very happy customer.
