What a privilege to capture all of the squishy goodness of a newborn! If it’s possible, there is something extra special about photographing a couple’s first baby. So much love. So much promise.
"Sona is more than a photographer, she is like an artist, who uses the lens of the camera to capture the essence of moments with an honest candidness that is not seen with a lot of photography these days. Sona is able to foresee the landscape in play with the clients prior to clicking the camera to take the image, thus the end result is breathtaking imagery. My partner and I are very impressed with our photograph portfolio that we commissioned with Sona. I have never really been one for photos that are too staged. I prefer a candid, more natural look; an image that captures the essence of the moment. This can be a little hit and miss with some photographers and the images that they take. What I found with Real Moments Photography is that Sona is able to capture that essence of the moment in every image that she took. I now have a beautiful collection of photos in our photograph portfolio that will stand the test of time. "
"We were most nervous about the photo shoot being such novices and having an unpredictable child! We greatly appreciated the guidance on what to wear and bring. We were very pleased with the variety and quality of backgrounds and they complimented Victoria perfectly. Your warmth and persistence for the best shots meant we left the photo shoot satisfied and excited about what you'll produce. The outcome was beyond our expectations. Each piece of artwork is perfectly put together with photos of the highest quality. Now mounted on our living room wall, it is impossible to not get constantly distracted by how incredible they look."
"This was our first professional shoot, we didn't know what to expect and were not sure if kids can be made to pose and smile! But we didn't know Sona has a great knack of letting us be just ourselves! We had a great family outing and got professional photos too! We absolutely love those photos and the products are worth every cent!"
"Being our first family photo shoot we weren't sure what exactly to expect. With a nearly one year-old it always feels like we are rushing around, but Sona's studio was a relaxed and comfortable environment. We were extremely happy with the results when we went to the viewing. As well as some lovely shots of our little girl, there are a number of special moments and photographs of us all together which now hang in pride of place (the quality of which is excellent)"
"We were delighted with the photos Sona took of our family and capturing the spirit of our love and bond. She went into an in depth analysis of our connections and things we like before the shoot and we felt absolutely relaxed with our photo shoot. Her photos were all stunning and I can spend hours looking at them. They truly are 'real moments'. Sona was very flexible with lay out options to allow for the pieces to fit in our home perfectly. Her photo shoot, selection of photos and after care service with the delivery of pieces was very professional. We are utterly delighted and forever grateful for her wonderful talent for capturing our family as it stands today."

"A uniquely impressive experience from the day of shooting to receiving the finished product. Service and products received were above expectations, and second to none in quality. Two words to describe Real Moments Photography: Wow Factor!"
"Thank you very much for making the session so relaxed and fun today. We enjoyed a hot chocolate afterwards and we all commented on how you managed to make us feel relaxed. It is something that rarely happens with me and photographers."

"We’re thrilled with the photos you took of Imogen and how fantastic the experience was Sona! For first time parents, it was a scary thought trying to get photos of a wriggly little baby, but you put us at ease and had an amazing way of calming both Imogen and ourselves.. The photos ended up better than we ever could have imagined, and we had so much fun with you on the day! Thank you so much Sona – we’ll definitely be back with child number 2….3….. "

"I used Real Moments Photography to get some professional photos of my two Golden Retrievers, it was something I was thinking of doing for a long time and had not gotten around to it. Sona and real moments photography were brilliant, Sona came around to my home and did some pre preparation work to find out exactly what I was looking for and hoping to achieve, from here we decided to choose a location along the river and set a date for the photo shoot. Sona was so easy to work with she was lovely with my dogs and even brought extra toys and things to attract their attention knowing that dogs can be difficult to work with, it was a lovely experience sitting on the river on a sunny day and the dogs enjoyed it and even got photos in the river. About 5 days later Sona delivered the photos to my house and we were able to see them projected on the wall in a larger size, I was very impressed with the technology that was used to help me choose my photos. After long deliberation I ended up with a large photo that has been framed and on my wall and smaller photos. I found the whole experience to be enjoyable, fun, and professional. I would recommend Sona and Real Moments Photography to anyone who is interested in creating some family memories."
