"Just taken my dog (a very energetic little poodle) for her first photo shoot with Chrissi. Made to feel very welcome and we enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine with Chrissi and darling Bo while Chrissi went above and beyond to give me the shots I wanted. Highly recommended :)"
"We had our son Henry in August 2010 and already coming up to 5 months and developing more and more everyday we were desperate for a professional photographer to come and capture those special moments so we could share them with family and friends. We heard about Chrissi Bell Photography though a close friend and didn't hesitate to contact her. She worked round us and came to the comfort of our own home which was a great advantage as Henry would be in familiar soundings and had everything we needed at hand. Chrissi first came round in December 2010 and strait away I was drawn to her friendly and bubbly personality and Henry absolutely loved her. Henry was still quite small being only 5 months old so Chrissi took photos of my partner Alex and me holding and kissing Henry and some on his own. The photos were fantastic and Chrissi really captured the joy of our new arrival. Being more than happy with the first set of photos we arranged for another set of photos to be taken. Henry was coming up to one and now very mobile, Chrissi provided some great props including bubbles which Henry thought were great. Chrissi captured Henrys personality and the little boy he had become! On both sets of photos Chrissi printed a selection and provided us with a CD ROM which has been more than useful as we can choose photos to get printed for family and friends, they can also borrow the CD ROM Which comes in handy as we have family who live a long way from us and havn't had the chance to see Henry as much as they would like. Chrissi has a very friendly and professional approach and we are delighted with the photos she has taken and couldn't be more happier. We have had so many compliments on the photos, so much so that we have kindly asked Chrissi to be the photographer for my sisters wedding in October. The photos will be amazing."

"Chrissi did a fabulous job with our wedding photographs. She carefully followed the brief we gave her which included some formal and also more casual shots. The result was a huge number of lovely pictures to choose from. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to others."

"We were delighted when Chrissi professionally photographed some of our knitting shop items for us. Chrissi's photographs managed to present the traditional craft of knitting in a visually innovative and modern way which has certainly been appreciated and commented on by our customers."
We would both like to thank you for the beautiful photographs you have taken of our wedding.
We had a fantastic day and this is shown in the way that you have captured us and our friends and family.
Everyone commented on how lovely you were and professional at the same time. We are so pleased that you did this for us, it really was a perfect day. Please don't give up on weddings, you're too good!
Thank you again,"

"Chrissi manages to combine professionalism with a warm and friendly manner. She made me feel relaxed throughout the photo session. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the results. I had the photo’s within a few days. I would not hesitate to recommend Chrissi to anyone."
"The girls enjoyed having their photographs taken and we were delighted with the results. The photos made terrific Christmas presents for the grandparents. Thank you Chrissi for capturing the girls in such a relaxed and fun way. A moment to treasure, captured in print."
"We contacted Chrissi to take some photographs of our two granddaughters Zoe and Gemma, then 6 and 7 years old, as a surprise present for our son's 40th birthday.
Chrissi came to our house to take the photos. Before taking any photos she chatted with the girls, did drawings with them and they were very relaxed and confident with her.
Chrissi took a series of the most beautiful photos of the girls, had them changing clothes for different shots which they thought was like being a model. Chrissi took colour and stunning black and white photos. Apart from standard portrait type photos she also produces unusual shots with a difference
We now have a wonderful collection of photographs much treasured by their parents and grandparents.
Zoe and Gemma are now 10 and 11 and cannot wait to have more photographs taken!"

"What can I say?
You came along, put us all at ease and produced some fantastic photos of our children. The result - our beautiful children – looking perfectly natural, not stiff and posed. You managed to capture their personalities. My husband was absolutely delighted with the results (as was I). A wonderful surprise 25th anniversary present for him (and me!)
It is something we will treasure as long as we live.
Thank you so much. I have no hesitation in recommending you to others."
