Testimonials

It’s really important you feel happy with the person you choose to create your personalised portrait. I believe the best advocates for my portrait services are those who have previously used me! Please read how past clients regard their experience of using Lisa North Photography to capture their portrait requirements.

I saw Lisa's charity pet portrait sessions on social media. We wanted to truly capture the personalities of my dogs, especially whilst one was still a puppy. She was so patient and lovely with us and the dogs, giving them time to settle into the environment, and to get used to the lights. She gave fabulous direction for posing the dogs and making them look their best. I felt really excited as I love a photo! We had the most fun and the dogs did too! We are obsessed with the finished images, it captured them perfectly and I am so proud of how my girlies sat together on the chaise. Her direction and expertise was fabulous and enabled us to get the most beautiful shots of the dogs and also us as a little family. Everyone needs a professional photo with their dog. These are memories we have and will cherish forever. Lisa is so talented in what she does and has so much love and passion for it.

Lauren Rymer April 2024

We chose Lisa as our photographer as she has an amazing reputation, and we have seen work that she has done for others. We wanted a family portrait for our parents. I was a little anxious as I don't like photos of myself, but it was amazing! Lisa made all our family feel very comfortable, and even the young adults had so much fun. It was an amazing experience, and one our family felt so comfortable doing. Lisa was professional, helpful, kind and made it fun which has also gone down in our memories. There is no one better that give both a fun afternoon and high standard photography.

Hayley Bell-Tye February 2024

Stephanie Israel August 2023

Lisa made us feel so at ease from the first meeting.Photos of her work were amazing. She exceeded our expectations completely. It was just WOW!! Our wedding photos were simply beautiful. She captured every special moment of our day from morning to evening. Couldn't thank Lisa and Kay enough for that.

Alvin and Lisa Russell May 2023

We chose Lisa for her dedication to her profession, and her love of animals. We wanted memories of our doggies, and Lisa's patience along with the relaxed atmosphere captured amazing pictures. Initially we were a bit nervous about the shoot, but we were excited to see the results, and a bit emotional. Lisa is an experienced photographer, who listened to what we wanted and offered advice. Her experience meant we could acheive the perfect picture to hang on our wall for a lifetime of memories.

Sandie Beaumont April 2023

I wanted some images of Luna that capture both her amazing ears and her playful side - we certainly got that! Having time for Luna to settle in and then your various squeaky noises was a big help. It was well worth it for Lisa's professional expertise and all the studio lighting which would be impractical to so at home. I was really pleased with how the shoot went and delighted with the finished images. Lisa takes the time to make her customers ( human and canine) feel relaxed and comfortable and overall made it a lovely experience. I never felt that Luna was under any pressure to perform and the resulting images were very natural and very 'Luna'. She also allowed plenty of time for viewing and selecting the final images.

Susan Wright March 2023

Lisa is well known as a good photographer, and we wanted some once in a lifetime photos of our dog. He is our first dog we have had since a pup so he's a little more special to us. The results are more than I could have wished for and taken with the least amount of fuss. I was very anxious and full of trepidation about the shoot, but was relieved that it went so well. I was absolutely thrilled with the end results.It brought tears to my eyes when I viewed the photos. Lisa is exactly the right person to take photos of pets as she clearly has a great understanding of how to make them work well for the right shots

Jenette Kingsbury April 2023

We wanted to get a lovely picture of us for my parents and i knew we were in safe hands with Lisa. She put us all at ease. She strives to get the best pictures possible, and really nailed it with us.

Debbie Harris March 2023

We were already aware of Lisa's work and how professional she is. Getting some lasting memories for us and our children was the reason for our shoot. Initially were were feeling anxious as neither of us like having our photo taken but Lisa made us feel relaxed and totally at ease. We were thrilled with the results, which reflect how relaxed we were! She has a marvellous knack of making you feel totally at ease and very special.

Bill and Val Barrell February 2023

We won a Pet Photography Experience in a competition for dogs over 10 years old for our dog, Buddy. We wanted some informal and relaxed images. Lisa was extremely patient to get the right image every time. We were a bit apprehensive about the shoot, but were thoroughly pleased with the experience of the shoot. With Lisa nothing was too much trouble, and we were over the moon with the images. Everything and more than expected. Our advice if you are thinking of having a shoot is just do it. Lisa is the most patient person, and will go the extra mile to get that special image.

Les and Sonia Beckham February 2023

Lisa did a brilliant photo shoot for us and went beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend her for any type of photos.

Chris Jackson February 2023

We have used Lisa before for doggy photo shoots and have been thrilled with the results. Capturing memories of the dogs was what we wanted, and you captured their personalities in every photo! Although I didn't like having my photo taken Lisa made me feel relaxed. We were excited to see the finished photos and were thrilled with the final product. Lisa is great at putting dogs and people at ease to enable her to get perfectly natural and personality capturing shots.

Ed Phillips and Stacey Remblance December 2022

I have always wanted a session as I had seen the quality of work in the shop window, but never did anything about getting one booked until I received a voucher. I wanted some beautiful photos of my very own first dogs. I was a bit nervous as I wasn't sure what to expect. Lisa helped work with me to keep them still but motivated, and they loved her which helped. I am so so so happy! The pictures are amazing and nearly made me cry! I wanted all of them! Lisa is super friendly. very professional and happy to work with my two crazies so can handle anything!

Alice Lomax December 2022

Lisa came and took some superb photos of my horses back in May when everything was green and fresh. Having her own horse, she is aware of what is needed to take a good photograph. I am very pleased with my stunning photos, she has captured the expression of my mare to perfection which makes me smile every time I walk past. The only problem was trying to choose from the large selection offered they were all so good.

Rosie Fearnley November 2022

We have had previous shoots with Lisa, both weddings and family. We wanted good quality results taken professionally. Lisa's follow up was good and she helped us to select the best photos from the shoot. She exceeded our expectations as she took lots of time with our granddaughter to capture the perfect, stunning photos. We were really pleased with the results. Many thanks

Julie Glover September 2022

My shoot was a gift from a friend and I was just delighted. It more than met my expectations - knowledge of pet behaviour, patience and tolerance was very impressive. It never felt rushed or hurried. I was so delighted with the finished product, and the various choices of frame and finish were of astounding quality. I will be sharing and sharing these pictures with everyone. Thank you Lisa.

Carole Ladd August 22

You captured our dogs photographs pre-pandemic, and loved how you captured them. When it came to choosing our wedding photographer we knew it had to be you. Our expectations were exceeded from start to finish. You were both amazing, polite and professional, and knew what you wanted to achieve. The photos are perfect. You captured every aspect of our day in a relaxed and fun way. We loved how you embraced our quirks (shoes. flowers) and food. You made us feel joy and happiness when we saw the images.

Jason & Kevin Perrio-Stolworthy August 22

My daughter won a photoshoot with Lisa which was a fabulous prize to win. At the photoshoot Lisa was great at working with Olivia and her ponies putting them at ease and capturing great shots of them all. The end result was a great set of pictures giving us amazing memories to treasure. Thanks for offering such a great prize

Sarah Murphy August 2022

I had been recommended Lisa for a portrait sitting for Jackson, our chocolate spaniel. From start to finish, Lisa was extremely professional. Jackson was not the easiest to photograph, but Lisa got some amazing shots of him. As promised, Lisa contacted me two weeks after the sitting, so I could relax on her sofa and choose what prints I wanted. It was hard to decide as they we’re all lovely. Our portrait of our beloved spaniel was delivered to my home this week, along with the rights to five other photos which I had purchased off Lisa. I would highly recommend Lisa North Photography for any of your needs, whether it be animals, weddings or family shots.

Julie Hall August 2022

We met Lisa at a Pony Club event and saw some beautiful examples of her work and that she had photographed some of our Pony Club friends. We were a bit dubious about how they would turn out as trying to get two children and two ponies to perform at the same time could have been a challenge, but it all went perfectly, no doubt due to Lisa's experience and professionalism.The whole experience from start to finish was amazing, and I couldn't recommend Lisa more highly. The shoot was relaxed and Lisa had some great ideas and got some incredible photos of the girls with their ponies. The viewing in her lovely studio was a great experience; relaxing on her comfy sofa and looking at the photos on the big screen. Lisa helped us pick the photos with no pressure to buy. Lisa kindly delivered our prints and had wrapped them so beautifully for us and the girls. We were genuinely excited to open them, and we were all thrilled with the final prints and can't wait to get them hung on the wall. Thank you so much Lisa

Tony and Sarah Shipley July 2022

I was bought a Gift Voucher from my children, and I wanted to capture the personality of my dog. You were able to put him at ease, and take some great shots showing him at his best. I felt you managed the photoshoot in a professional and friendly manner. The viewing session was delightful as my family were welcomed into your studio with me. High quality photographs taken in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. The excellent use of technology to personalise the viewing ensured I made the best choice of portrait.

Felicity Golding July 2022

We spoke to you at the Lowestoft Canine Creche event, and also your brochure was very comprehensive. We wanted some professional photos of our dogs. We were very impressed with the session, you were so patient with our very excitable dog, and were thrilled with the resultant photos. You were very friendly and professional, and the quality of the photos second to none.

Alan and Jill Giles July 2022

Absolutely recommend Lisa North Photography for any wedding or event you may wish to be captured for posterity. Both Lisa and Kay joined us for our wedding day and were the perfect combination, working effortlessly together. Their professionalism was impeccable and they knew exactly when to step forwards, or when to simply allow the moment to unfold. I felt supported by them both, and Lisa was excellent at communicating throughout the day and helping to work around any hiccups. I had a few sneak peeks the very next day to update friends and family who had been unable to join us, which were stunning and captured us beautifully. We can't wait to see the rest!

Martin & Kindra Faulks June 022

My parents bought us a Gift Voucher for Christmas as we've walked past the shop several times and said how we would love to do a family photoshoot. We wanted to capture our family, and create memories of his first Birthday. Before the shoot I hated the idea as I have never liked the idea of having my picture taken, let alone professionally, but I was very comfortable. Lisa was brilliant and made us all feel very welcome, and managed to capture some beautiful photos of us all. I was very professional , relaxed and extremely welcoming.

Christie Mills June 2022

I have known Lisa for a number of years and always wanted her to take my wedding pictures. As we have only ever had staged photographs in the past which made us feel uncomfortable we wanted natural fun photos. Lisa's extensive experience and knowledge guided us through the day. We were totally at ease on the day and blown away with the final photos. Lisa is a fantastic photographer. friendly and professional.

Ron and Rachael Holmes May 2022

I came along to a Christmas charity event, and received a complimentary one hour shoot. After looking through photos I loved what I saw and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to have some portraits of my puppy done. Lisa achieved some beautiful shots to treasure as you cannot get these kind of images through your phone. I wasn't convinced my puppy would sit still but she knew exactly what to do with him to get him to do what was needed. I was happy and excited after the shoot to see the photos, and once I saw them I couldn't decide as they were so much better than expected. Lisa is friendly, easy to relax with, very knowledgeable, a true professional.

Frances Haydon March 2022

My daughter had previously had a photography session with her dog, and the photos were lovely, so I was pleased to win a competition for a session with my dog. I wanted to achieve keepsake by getting some lovely photos. Although I was a little nervous about the session, I was really pleased with the photographs and quite emotional. The photos are good quality and make the most of the subject.

Angela Palmer February 2022

I entered and won a Facebook competition for a Child's First Pony session for my daughter. After looking at your extensive variety of photos online, it was very clear that you're extremely knowledgable and I'd be in safe hands. The photos certainly spoke for themselves. We wanted to capture the bond between Connie and William, as well as their individual characters. This was certainly achieved, you took the time to use different locations on the yard to see what brought out the best in them both, and what made them feel comfortable and relaxed. There was absolutely no pressure which I think made them both relax. We were overjoyed with how many great shots you got even though Connie didn't have a smile on her face all the time. You still managed to capture their personalities which I didn't think was possible with the tears at times! You made us feel very relaxed throughout the session and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

Hannah Watson March 2022

I was sent a link to the Dog Valentine offer you had on in February, so I had a look at your work and fell in love. I had just got my puppy and I wanted to capture her at a young age. The pictures that were taken caught her character! I was very excited about getting pictures of the dogs, but nervous of the ones of me. It was so exciting to see the pictures, choosing the ones I wanted as prints was very difficult. I was delighted when they came through the post, even more so once I had framed them and put them up on the wall. It was a very pleasurable and professional experience, and a lot of effort was made to understand both dogs characters and this was captured in the pictures.

Jasmine Utting March 2022

Having used you for a family wedding many years ago I remembered how good you were, and kept you in mind for when I was looking for a photographer. I wanted some nice pictures of my partner and I as we don't get many opportunities when we are dressed up together and where we can get some lovely photos of us together. You definitely achieved that and got some really nice pictures of us. We were nervous as both of us are not always comfortable in front of the camera, but you made us feel at ease and more comfortable. It was exciting! The whole experience was fun and we felt so at ease, you made it a lovely experience! I would say you are a friendly face and very professional in your work.

Beth Capon-Morris February 2022

I was given a Gift Voucher for a significant birthday, but I had seen and admired Lisa's photographs on social media. I wanted some relaxed shots of me with the horses and dogs. Lisa made me feel completely at ease and achieved some fabulous photos. I was terrified, but I really enjoyed it and the finished images are outstanding. Lisa makes you feel completely at ease. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone, especially people like me that HATE having their photos taken - the results are astonishing.

Nicky Virgo - August 2021

I wanted a forever picture of my cats and Lisa has done a wonderful job. I was really pleased and overwhelmed as they looked better than expected – it’s lovely to have the girls immortalised in such a beautiful way. Lisa was very professional, but lovely and welcoming. She kept incredibly calm despite the cats taking time to settle in and perform for their photos. Lisa was kind to my girls and tried to put them at ease. I thought the whole set up was excellent.

Caroline Allen - September 2021

We have used Lisa for our wedding and we couldn't imagine using anyone else. We wanted a great set of family photographs, and Lisa always puts us at such ease. It's like having an old family friend around. She also has a great eye for the perfect photo. We couldn't be happier. Lisa is a professional of the highest standard. She will work with you to get everything you want and more. Her insight and skill in her craft will give you far more than you could ever expect.

Carl and Laura Sheppard - August 2021

I was kindly bought a Gift Voucher for a present. My friend had been recommended by a family member that knew of your wonderful pet portraits supporting different charities. I was hoping to get a professional photo in a beautiful setting of my handsome boy, Alfred, which was most definitely acheived. The setting was lovely, looked fantastic in the photos and went so well with Alfred's look. I had honestly never really thought about having professional photos done, especially for my dog. My experience definitely left me wanting more professional photo shoots. I was really happy after my photoshoot. I was worried as I thought my dog wouldn't stay still long enough, or it would be too overwhelming for him, but we both felt relaxed and comfortable. I couldn't have been happier with our final images. The photos truly captured Alfred's beautiful looks and his character.

Bethany Hyde - May 2021

I wanted a professional business shot, and like to use someone local. I hate having my photo taken, however Lisa helps with make up, and it was set in a relaxed atmosphere, which made it an enjoyable experience. I was very happy with the images and felt they were very flattering. Lisa is personable, approachable and produces a very professional photograph.

Pam Young - August 2021

Lisa helped us personalise our family photos and capture our two-year old’s personality. We love our photos, and it was hard to choose as there were so many we loved. Lisa made our son’s experience fun and relaxing. Lisa is very knowledgeable and listens to her clients.

Siobhan and Bertie Steggles - December 2021

We won our pet portriats in a prize draw after meeting Lisa at an event, anf the whole experience with her was lovely. It was a very relaxed shoot and our Labrdors loved Lisa as she is obviously an 'animal person'. The results were just amazing; the pictures turn out like oil paintings, and we're over the moon with our framed print. We brought extras as we couldn't choose just one favourite - all the pictures were gorgeous and captured the dogs personalities fantastically. Thank you for a great prize Lisa!

Karen Warmington - July 2021

I wanted some evelasting pictures of my horses, and friends have used Lisa before, and she came highly recommnended. I was a nervous as to how they would behave but I was overjoyed with my photos. Lisa is a fabulous photographer who manages to capture the love between human and animals, even in the midst of a battle!

Corry Mason - July 2021

I won my shoot as a prize for winning the Supreme Championship class at Bergh Apton Horse Show. It wasn't really something I would have thought about having done if I hadn't won the shoot, but I wanted some nice pictures that were different to show photos. We had a lovely day. It was really relaxed and wasn't rushed at all. The final images are beautiful. Lisa is highly recommended and captured the essence of what I wanted perfectly.

Georgina Wilkes - June 2021

We had had our previous dogs done professionally years ago, so we were looking for someone who could fulfill this role for us. We checked out the website and saw the lovely photographs of pets. We wanted a good likeness of our dog. With Lisa's patience she captured Sophie's different expressions. How she managed it with a dog that wouldn't sit still was nothing short of a miracle. We couldnt fault Lisa in any way, the overall experience ws amazing and the finished images were beyond our wildest dreams. If you are looking for someone who is professional, friendly and has the patience of a saint with your dog look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Chris and Wendy Landin - June 2021

Lisa had a local studio and was very helpful when booking, sorting everything out including hair and make up. This was to be a memory of my daughter's Prom dress as she didn't get to wear it due to Covid. Brooke felt wonderful afterwards and we are very happy with the photos. When recommending Lisa I would say she is helpful, passionate and professional.

Maria Atkins - June 2021

I saw Lisa's charity photoshoot advertised on Facebook, and liked her previous pictures and thought it would be nice. We had a photoshoot when Syril was younger, and wanted some as he got older. She achieved that by capturing some fantastic pics. I have always liked professinal photos as you are able to capture some great detail, and I was really pleased with the images. Lisa is a friendly, calm, patient, professional and talented photographer.

Carry Hill May 2021

Lisa took some photos of me and my new horse, and with her advice and guidance I got the opportunity to have some photos in my Prom dress which I never got to wear due to Covid. It was an amazing experience and so well guided by her professional knowledge for the shoot, and the images are amazing and a fantastic memory.
