Eve's work should come with a warning: DO NOT view the results of your photo session at your desk, at work, in full make up -- that is, unless you want to sport the "sad clown" look for the rest of the day. The photos from our family shoot were BEAUTIFUL. As I scrolled through our gallery, I had to stop several times to clear away the "soft focus filter" that was being applied to the pictures by my tears Eve makes magic with her camera. The day of our shoot was forecast mixed: barely any sunshine, grey and overcast, chance of rain. Yikes. Eve confirmed that we would go ahead - and reassured us that the lack of sunshine was a good thing, as the bright sun can present more of a challenge. My in-laws showed up for the shoot with my MIL coughing up a storm (later diagnosed pnuemonia!) We had to rush to get out of the door, all a bit harassed, and with the star of the show (our very-nearly 1-year-old) in no mood to be cheerful or smiling. I didn't have high hopes... Eve met us with warmth and calm and kindness. She let us be ourselves, guided gently-but-clearly when we needed to be pointed in the right direction (often, literally). She weathered the elements along with us, with grace and as if it was really nothing at all. She was just quietly wonderful. We actually started to enjoy ourselves! And given the grey day, that was entirely down to Eve's wonderful manner and relaxed approach. And did I mention that Eve makes MAGIC with her camera??? Despite the chilly late afternoon, the drizzle, the rushed start (all us, nothing to do with Eve), the results were INCREDIBLE. Eve's pleasant and relaxed style goes hand in hand with being incredibly professional and organized. From the initial contact, through to the contract, her email with incredibly helpful pre-shoot advice, and making all the arrangements, I was thoroughly impressed and reassured. This is important when you have a rare moment, on a special occasion, to capture the people you love most in the world. And that's what Eve achieved. She captured love, family love, and the results were simply amazing. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Everness Photography. And if you are even thinking about doing a family photo shoot, call Eve. These images are forever, and you won't regret it.
Eve was really a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Very professional in terms of the expectations communicated, contracts, etc., and also professional during our session but totally warm as well. She was a blessing helping keep an eye on my kid while the camera was pointed at me, and she was great getting my child to smile or feel comfortable in front of the lens. She has a great eye and I was really impressed by the big picture captured in our photographs. While obviously the subjects in family photos are what we're focusing on, she's also paying attention to how the light, the sky, the grass, the flowers in the trees and the colors in our clothing all come together to make something beautiful. She was pleasant to work with, the photos are beautiful, and I highly recommend Everness Photography.
I had an amazing experience with Eve at Everness photography! She really made our whole family very comfortable and was able to make my 9 month old and 4 year old smile. This was the best experience we have ever had with a photographer and we will be definitely using Everness Photography in the future.
