Rachel is Timaru-based and is amazing. She is very down-to-earth and puts you at ease.

Penny Nichols

Another one for Penny. I wish that I had her for my wedding. A friend did and I loved the pics so recommended her for my sister (great pics!). She also does the B&W kindy photos, which are amazing and everyone comments on just how wonderful they are, capturing the children's personalities.

She gave a talk at the Christchurch Photographic Society and was very knowledgeable

Just been to a family photograph session.

I'm no photographer but why do they insist on taking over posed pics. "Put your hand here" "lay your head on his shoulder" My god it looked awful! Reminds me of some of those awkward family photos you see online.

Does anybody know of a family photographer that takes just natural looking photos! I think I will find someone else to do another family photo session for Mum.

did you not tell him what you wanted!. afterall you are paying.

It wasn't me that wanted it in the first place, Mum organised it and asked for me to come along.So I didn't feel it was my place to pipe up and say something or complain about what she was doing.

I am just asking for recommendations on other photographers so I could organise someone else to take pics for my Mum

highly recommend backyard studio :) can be found on facebook or google the name for their website

Yours are lovely matt574.
I love the Penny Nichols ones as well.
I'm a keen amateur photographer & I just click, click, click & hope for that 'x factor' shot when photographing people.

Delphine co-owns studio 28, they do fab family portraits!

Try Backyard Studio. Have heard they are fantastic

xxsaffyxx, Sep 19, 5:59am
Barry Flewellen (not sure of spelling), takes fab shots. Helps get you at ease very well.

I highly recommened Laura and Sarah Palmer ofBackyard Studio- I wish I had booked them for my wedding last year- our photographer made Hitler seem nice

kimmyflo, Sep 19, 7:12am
another vote for Penny Nichols.she took pics at my preschool last year and shes coming again this week. she does reasonable package deals for families too

Here's another suggestion. Bryan Isbister, based in Ferry Road, lovely guy and fabulous natural pictures.
