“Had a fantastic experience with my maternity photo shoot. Hair and make up was fabulous and eveyone was super lovely. I felt so comfortable as I'm always a bit awkward in front of cameras. But felt really relaxed and was super fun! I also got to take outfits I wanted to use and was really helped with the photo stlye I had envisioned. Thank you!"


“Had a fantastic morning at our baby girls newborn photoshoot. Kirsteen made us feel very welcome and was brilliant at keeping our baby calm for each photo, being patient and helping to soothe her. There was a beautiful selection of props and outfits to choose from and the studio had a lovely relaxed vibe to it. Nothing felt rushed and we were able to feed and change baby when needed between pictures. Can't wait to see how they turn out! Would definitely come back to Willow & Bear in the future."


“Went for my pregnancy photos last week, and instantly Mirren and Claire made me feel SO at ease! Not confident with photos but they made you forget that’s what was happening! Cant wait to see the final product! Thank you!."
