I’ve worked with Andrea professionally as well as personally (work and family shoots) and I have loved both experiences. Professionally Andrea worked incredibly well to a brief, was great with the team we had, provided exactly what we wanted stylistically and worked quickly and efficiently. Personally Andrea put us at ease and did a fantastic job of capturing us ‘as we are’ as a family. I love the natural lighting element of her work; it makes for such personal feeling photographs. Andrea is so easy to be around; I would highly recommend her for family shoots (and more!).

Now, I have never been one for family pics etc. In fact, I don’t even think we have one photo up in the house but we were lucky enough to have the chance to have Andrea Thomson Photography to do our family pics and I just couldn’t be more delighted with the results! It was also such a fun afternoon as Andrea is such a pleasure to be around and she dealt with my middle one being a little monkey with such professionalism! Really delighted to have these memories in such fantastic quality and to actually be in some pics with my family!

For our tenth wedding anniversary I realised my hubby and I didn’t really need any more ‘stuff’ so instead I bought a family photography session for us and our three children. We spent a couple of hours exploring the great outdoors while Andrea took photos of us (nothing staged, which is great for someone like me who hates photos of themselves) and we are absolutely delighted with the photos. It was a fun, relaxed and enjoyable afternoon, our kids loved her, and she was completely unobtrusive so it didn’t feel like hard work at all. In fact the time flew! The photos are natural and really show our three children as they are, which is exactly what we wanted. The only issue now will be trying to find enough walls to put the photos on!! Highly recommend.

Andrea came to our home one Saturday morning and as soon as she walked in it felt like we had known her for years. She made us all feel at ease and captured our family doing our thing at home - making pancakes, playing in the garden - special everyday moments - that i will treasure forever. Thank you so much everything - the experience was wonderful and the photos are very very beautiful indeed. xx

Andrea was friendly, enthusiastic, and so professional as she gave us all direction. How she interacted with the kids was amazing, and definitely helped them to relax meaning we got so many great photos. The photos are amazing and family and friends have all commented on the quality of them. She was brilliant at capturing so many great moments and expressions, and we often forgot that she was there. We couldn’t have been happier with the photos and would without hesitation recommend Andrea to anyone thinking about or wanting photos of their kids, family or for any special occasion.

We loved when Andrea came to our house for the photo session. Andrea took time in order for the kids to get used to the camera which meant that the photos were very relaxed. She captured our Saturday afternoon perfectly and we love the final photos!

We did a photo shoot with Andrea at home. Her friendly and relaxed manner soon had my three boys run around, climbing on furniture, building forts and reading books, all the things they do in their day to day life. The result was natural photos of us being ourselves and at the same time Andrea managed to capture the unique character of each of the boys in the perfect moment. We got pictures to keep and to give away to grandparents. Win win.

Andrea spent a lot of time with us at our photo session and was brilliant at capturing everyday moments as we went about our usual Saturday. We love our photos - they are very natural and unposed and perfectly capture us as a family. She has a real talent for finding the special moments in the humdrum of everyday life. Highly recommended and we will treasure our pictures!

Just look at the photos; they speak for themselves. Andrea misses no opportunity to get gorgeous, natural shots but her unobtrusive approach allows her subjects to just ‘do their thing’. Highly recommended.

Andrea is so great at being a fly on the wall and capturing the beautiful everyday moments that are so easily overshadowed by the posed family photos in frames on the wall (but of course she can do the posed photos too!) I cannot recommend her enough! Beautiful photos, easy and enjoyable session, posed and candid, she just has a way about her and an incredible eye.

Andrea had the wonderful ability to capture your families personality perfectly. She puts you at ease and just enjoys snapping away while you and your family hang out and have fun together. Very talented lady, creating timeless images.

We have three girls and the thought of a photo session had me in hives so we haven’t had photos done in years. However, Andrea put the whole family at ease and captured the individual personalities of the children so well - bouncing youngest, tree loving middle daughter, tween eldest daughter. I’m so pleased we went ahead with professional photos because now we have a permanent record of this particular time in the girls’ lives. I would highly recommend Andrea and will definitely book her again next year!

Andrea joined our family on a walk up our local hill in Edinburgh & whilst the children were relaxed & happy, she snapped away without them realising! She’s an incredibly talented photographer whose skill and enthusiasm enabled her to capture beautiful, natural family shots that we will cherish forever.

Andrea is a natural with a camera, which makes a shoot with her a fabulous experience. As a mother herself, she is totally relaxed about the challenges of wriggly children and able to get great shots regardless of the circumstances. Andrea took some lovely shots of our girls and really managed to capture their personalities.

Andrea took some fantastic photos of my outdoor boot camp. The session was super relaxed, I absolutely love the photos and Andrea really managed to capture the fun people were having on the day. It felt very natural having her there and at times I even forgot she was there snapping photos! If you are after some natural photos that really capture what is going on, Andrea will get you those shots. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

I was wanting food photos to be taken for my new personal chef website. The photos she took are fabulous! Professional, easy going, relaxed, hard working and always smiling, Andrea is passionate about her vocation which comes through in her work. I’d highly recommend Andrea to work with.

Thoroughly recommended! Andrea took some terrific photos of our group to use for promotional purposes. Andrea is friendly and approachable, there was no nonsense of faff. Andrea listened to what I wanted and delivered what I asked for. We did an outdoor photo session and the group were completely natural, relaxed and happy to have her around. The photos express the vibe of our group brilliantly. Five stars!
