"Just a recommendation for the best baby/kids/family photographer I have ever used. Tanya de Villiers takes the most stunning photos and I come back to her again and again. A big plus is also that she is so easygoing and fun! The kids love her and she always gets the best out of them. Even my husband puts up with having his photo taken when Tanya is behind the camera! I can't praise her enough - I know there are lots of established names that often get mentioned here, so I just wanted to give her my seal of approval and encourage anyone looking for a photographer to give her a go, as she's fairly new on the scene, however her talent is amazing."

"I had a photo shoot with Tanya at the Christmas Market in Edinburgh, December 2017. In such a busy space it would be easy to feel self conscious, but Tanya is so good at putting you at ease that I soon forgot about all the people.
Tanya was brilliant with my children, quickly forming a connection with them so their photos are relaxed and natural.
She is a gifted photographer, the pictures of the children are stunning and she has managed to capture their personalities as well as their likeness.
Her customer service is excellent, following up with a series of friendly messages letting me know when the album will be ready. (And Tanya has endless patience with customers who take forever to choose their images.)
I'll definitely be in touch again in the future to arrange some more pictures.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon Tanya."
"Not only amazing natural photographs that really capture the people you shoot but such a lovely, warm woman who is a pleasure to work with 😊"
"Tanya came to our home when my second child was only a week old, to take Christmas family photos and newborn/family photos. She was here for a couple hours, totally charmed my 3-year-old, and took some truly fabulous photos!
She was completely at home within the whirlwind chaos that is life with a toddler and a newborn and really had us at-ease! Her documentary-style photos really suited us and some of the candids she took of my toddler, especially, were just unbelievably adorable -- she captured moments that wouldn't even have occurred to me were worth capturing, and I'll be cherishing the images for many, many years to come!
Tanya is definitely who I'll call for future family photo sessions! <3"
"Tanya photographed my daughter for her first birthday. The photos are absolutely stunning and capture some wonderful memories of this special time that we will always cherish. I would unreservedly recommend Tanya, she is so easy going, enthusiastic and makes you feel utterly comfortable while she snaps alway. Tanya clearly loves what she does, everything about the whole experience exuded both her passion and professionalism."
"Very relaxed but professional. Wonderful photo which really captured my little one :) "
"A more wonderful experience I couldn't have asked for. Tanya took the most precious photos of myself and my baby girl at the Royal Botanic Gardens. She is so professional and made us feel completely at ease instantly, I highly recommend her!"
