“We recently used Gemma for some family photos, shot at Southerndown beach. The images were stunning and Gemma was a total joy to spend time with. She instantly put our 4yo and 6yo (and the grown-ups) at ease. She edited the images and sent us proofs at lightning speed, too. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking for beautiful, natural family photography.” Hannah Abbott

“This was such a fantastic day with Gemma. The pictures are fantastic and take pride of place in the house. Gemma made my daughters (3 & 5) feel really at ease and brought the best out of everyone involved. Can’t recommend enough – one of the best things I’ve done!” Owen Fear

“We were over the moon with our photos by Gemma. Gemma was professional and very patient with our uncooperative two year old. We couldn’t be happier with how our photos turned out and would 100% recommend Gemma to anyone looking for a family photographer.” Lucy Strong

“We could not be happier with our family photos. Gemma is a true professional and did such a fabulous job for us. She makes you feel calm and relaxed and knows how to position everyone to get the best shot. I’d highly recommend Gemma!” Jess O’Keefe

As her name already indicates, Gemma is a ‘gem’ and an amazing human being with an outstanding artistic gaze, genuine emotions, and professionalism! My husband, his parents and my parents were speechless upon seeing the photographs and we will treasure them forever – not only the gorgeous silhouettes and golden sunset, but also the joy of the moment and how time flew by! We had the opportunity of meeting her lovely daughter and we highly recommend Gemma’s fabulous skills to anyone who would like to celebrate the Welsh landscape with breathtaking photographs!” Cintia & Jason

“I have used Gemma’s photography services for family photo shoots, children’s portraits, business headshots and I have attended her training sessions to make me a better photographer. She is absolutely lovely and always puts at us ease when having our photos taken. I have always been so impressed with her photography and she has captured my little ones and provided us with photos of our whole family that will be treasured forever. I can’t recommend her enough.” Helen Sandford Taylor


I first contacted Gemma back in the summer of 2019 to book a ‘Maternity Beach Shoot’ as I wanted professional photographs taken with my partner to capture my pregnancy that we could always treasure. The shoot took place at the beautiful Southerndown Beach in South Wales during a gorgeous summer evening. Gemma made us feel at ease during the shoot and took her time to ensure that the best possible photographs were captured at different idyllic locations. The images captured were absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations, which are now proudly displayed throughout our home.

During the Autumn of 2019, I requested Gemma’s services once again to capture beautiful photographs of my mums beloved necklace who had sadly passed away just weeks before. Knowing I could trust Gemma to create and produce such beautiful images I did not hesitate to ask for her assistance. We met me at a beautiful location special to my mum at short notice and captured the most beautiful photographs that were just breath taking. Gemma also helped me to select a beautiful handmade frame and images that I was so proud and happy to gift to my brother at Christmas in memory of our mum.

Gemma truly is a gifted photographer who is passionate about her work and customers. The photographs and memories she has captured for us will always be treasured. Thank you so much Gemma. Can’t wait to work with you again and book further photograph shoots in the near future x” Gemma Tibbott

“We had a great time having our first ever family photo shoot with Gemma. Gemma immediately built up a great rapport with all of us and despite high winds, nearby rain and having to dodge a film crew we had beautiful images which we will treasure forever. Thank you Gemma for helping our family through your beautiful images, spread the lived reality of having a family member who has Down’s syndrome and being part of a growing community who #WouldntChangeAThing” Kate Harris

“We have recently had a family photo shoot with Gemma. Not only was it great fun but the photos were AMAZING and I can’t wait to get them up on the wall. It was so difficult to choose as we loved them all. Gemma was great with the kids and the shoot was very relaxed in a beautiful setting. Communication was great from planning the shoot, discussing outfits and viewing/choosing the photographs. Gemma is a fantastic photographer and myself and family would highly recommend her.” Rebecca Faulkner
