We got a fantastic product back and didn’t ever feel rushed at all.” Adelyn & Jun Wei, October 2019

“Had our third girl’s newborn photos taken by Jodie. The whole experience from beginning to end was positive and professional. Jodie was very patient when we ran late, engaging with our two older girls,and very gentle when positioning the newborn. The photos were natural and fully captured the girl’s emotions and personality. We ended up spending more than what we had planned to because the photos were just too good to part with! Thank you for helping us to capture this beautiful moment” Chew, September 2019

Jodie listened to what we wanted and was happy to facilitate all of our requests. The quality of the shots that Jodie took were outstanding. She really captured our little girl’s personality and all the gorgeous little things we want to remember from her being so small.

“We’ve had a newborn photo shoot and a cake smash done with Samantha May Photography and our expectations were exceeded with both. Jodie is fantastic with kids and so patient with cheeky little ratbags like my boys. She has an eye for detail and is so thoughtful with little finishing touches that show just how passionate she is about her work. I highly recommend Samantha May Photography and my family will also be returning in the future.” – Deb Pountney 28.04.14


“My goodness Jodie those photos are absolutely gorgeous. We love them so much. You’ve captured her beautifully.” “Thank you so much for the gorgeous prints we ordered after our cake smash shoot. The quality of the photographs and the way they came out with the print made the extra costs of printing so very worthwhile – the depth of colour would not have been achieved in any other way. We are so grateful for your guidance for the photos, the way the shoot happened and the amazing photos which will now be framed and put proudly on our wall. Limiting ourselves to only 3 was the hardest decision! We will definitely use your services in the future, and recommend you to anyone who will listen. We couldn’t have been happier with the service from start to finish.”
– Regan and Alicia with Stella Le’Roy. August 2013

“Dear Jodie, I wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful job you have done on Nathan and my wedding photos! They have been edited beautifully and we love them all. The day just flew by so it really is lovely to have all those memories captured forever. I can’t wait to show my children in years to come. We are in the process of picking a few of our favourites to enlarge up and have framed on our wall. But it’s so hard to choose just a few! We thought it was great that you gave us our photos in disc form so we were able to go through and print the ones we loved the most. I also wanted to say that you presented the disc wonderfully and we loved the extra thank you postcards you gave us. Seeing as we haven’t sent out thank you cards yet this was a great help to us! Thank you again and of course to your lovely assistant, Steven.” – Leah & Nathan, 20.02.12

Look forward to working with you in the future for my business and hoping to get family shots done too when you are free. Best wishes for a successful 2012.” – Gael Ward, owner First Feet Baby Shoes. 12.01.12
