Tesimonals - Emma Barnfield Photography

" I had never had a photoshoot before my maternity shoot with Emma. Even though I loved my pregnancy body I was a little nervous before my photoshoot,as I had no clue how to β€˜pose’..I shouldn’t have worried at all! Em made me feel like I was with an old friend, I totally relaxed and felt confident & comfortable. Such a natural gift for envisaging what you want from your photos...even if your not quite sure yourself! I absolutely love my maternity photos I will always treasure them. Thank you so much Emma, your a beautiful soul and so incredibly talented at what you do x "


'Thank you Emma for being a miracle worker and making me feel amazing! Despite being very nervous I was put completely at ease the whole time and am so happy with my pics. This has been a much needed confidence boost for me and I feel so much better now. This has really helped to get me back on track. Thank you so much 😘😘'


" I have been to see Emma 3 times now, and each and every time she has made me feel and look amazing!! From the first time I stepped into her studio she was a true professional, but also made me feel like her friend!

We chatted about life for a while, then about the shoot and what we wanted to achieve from it, she made me feel totally relaxed and gave me all the guidance I needed .......what then came from Emma/Camera/Me was truly breathtaking!

It was hard to believe that it was me at first! This has happened each and every time I have been to see her. These shoots have not only been a fantastic opportunity and a massive confidence boost, they have made me love myself and the body I have been blessed with!

If you are thinking about having a shoot with Emma, I would say stop thinking about it and just do it, drop her a message she is the most lovely, honest, non judgmental woman I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Go on - what you waiting for gather some underwear, paint you nails, get your hair and makeup done! Do and wear what makes you feel beautiful and special ....Trust me, You will not regret it.... "


 " I've visited Emma twice now and both times I've left after the shoot feeling like a totally different, positive person. Emma understands every feeling and emotion her ladies have and embraces every single one. Emmas guidance through the shoot makes it the easiest thing in the world to do. I felt comfortable, at ease and to say I'm thrilled with the images would be an understatement. Total professionalism with all the important extras such as, understanding and kindness. A truly uplifting, amazing experience from beginning to end. Thank you Em ❀ "


" After losing over 6 and a half stone I was feeling great but in my head I wasn't happy with how it had left by body looking. After hearing about Emma's work I built up courage to book an appointment. She was so reassuring and understanding all the way through the shoot. When I saw the photos I couldn't believe it was me. Totally empowering experience but more importantly a psychological fixing of my hang ups about my body. "


" I have had the pleasure of having two photoshoots with Emma and every time it has been such a wonderful experience. Boudoir shoots can be a bit daunting but Emma has the gift of making feel at ease straight away, guiding you gently on how to pose, giving you little tips and gradually increase your confidence until you feel like a million dollar! She’s so kind and approachable and her attention to details is what makes every picture a work of art. I can’t recommend Emma enough, she is a beautiful, talented lady with a gorgeous heart. "


" Emma see's you, truly see's you. She has the amazing ability to capture your soul on camera. She is lush. It took a while for us to finally meet as I have been a huge fan of her work. When I did it was everything I had hoped for. As a photographer she creates a feeling of ease, gives excellent direction so you get the best from the shoot. Her goal is to make all women see their beauty...she succeeds and I bow before her. I am all about body positivity and she is my goddess. X "


"Absolutely loved the Photo shoot and my photos were amazing :D it's made me feel a lot happier about myself and it has made me more confident in my own skin :) would definitely do it again, you made me feel incredibly comfortable and welcomed..youre an amazing woman 😍xxx" xx


" The experience was amazing! Never actually done anything like it before so being in front of a camera is scary at first but Emma makes you feel so relaxed and calm! Looking at the photos doesn't seem real as if that's me! Emma made me feel beautiful in every way and as if I could do anything I wanted to. It gave me such a confidence boost doing the shoot! Would totally recommend this woman to anyone ! She is a gem ! "


" Wow, never would I have thought I'd look at a photo of me and go wow is that me, that's sure is what I've done several times in fact since you showed me my sneaky peek photo. Never did I think I could look sexy at my size, I don't think I've ever felt sexy infact. Your amazing lady and your work is amazing, infact you should be prescribed through NHS for self confidence and self - esteem, because thats what you do, you given me that glimmer that i can be sexy, i can be who I want to be. I'm so blessed I met you.

I'm absolutely speechless your photos brought me to tears today, I don't have the words to convey exactly how I feel. I can't believe that those photos are me, never ever did I think I could look like that, fat people aren't sexy is what we are led to believe, well!! I can't actually still bring myself to say out loud, I can whisper it in my head 😘😘😘😘😘😘 I can't thank you enough, I'm so glad I found you. And If anyone is thinking of doing it and doubting themselves. Go for it ladies. "


" The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish! I felt so nervous beforehand but from the moment I walked into Emma's studio I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed. Rebecca the hair and make up artist was fantastic and the photoshoot was so much fun. I came out feeling fabulous and the photographs were more beautiful and perfect than I could ever have imagined. Thank you Emma xx "


" I just want to say a huge thank you to Emma. She helped me give my new husband the best wedding gift. I was extremely nervous but she made me feel at ease and we had a few giggles. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos they are so tastefully done. They are something my hubby will keep forever but also for me aswell. I have never seen myself looking like that and it makes me feel extremely proud and more confident with my body. Thank you again Emma 😊 "


" I thoroughly enjoyed the photo shoot. As an aspiring plus size model, blogger and a plus size pageant finalist, I wanted to get more experience in front of the camera. I'm not a naturally confident person but Emma put me right at ease and I really enjoyed the session. I also love my final photos! "


" The experience was amazing i felt really nervous to begin with but as soon as i met you i relaxed almost instantly. the photos taken seemed to come so natural and i was put at ease and didn't have to force anything. Seeing the final photos was the best feeling ever! I had to do a double check as i couldn't believe it was me. My confidence has hit an all time high because of this and makes me feel like i can do anything if i put my mind to it Jo xx "

It would be hard not to get along with Emma at all and the results from her photos are a testament to her skill!!  and can't stress enough how highly I can recommend her. "

" WOW WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!! SPEACHLESS !  from start to finish the whole experience was mind blowing ! My hair and Makeup was amazing and the photographs are just wow beautiful.Thank you Emma and Rebecca xx xx xx "


 " I first met Emma years ago... I was feeling lost I was suffering from body dysmorphia and depression.... I had seen a boudoir shoot she did for a friend and wanted to be brave enough to do something like that.... But was worried about my post birth body and stretch marks but I needed have worried at all....I was greeted with a smile and a hug and was made to feel amazing the whole time I was there... I felt so at ease with Emma she explained everything!! Made suggestions and only shot what I was happy with. I left feeling empowered and beautiful... Yes BEAUTIFUL! I have been back may more times, each time she has brought me back up smiling and feeling like a strong woman..... Emma loves shooting real women and if your body has stretch marks scars lumps and bumps your even more beautiful to her....I highly recommend a shoot with this wonderful lady this is her passion and it shows through her work. "


 " I have undergone several operation's as a result of this I have felt very low. in need of a desperate boost I booked a shoot with Emma she is so kind and caring and made me feel so amazing ! its just what I needed I look back on photographs when I need a pick me up and it takes me back to my shoot :-) Thank you so much Em xx "


 " Just wanted to say a huge thank you for today , not only did you make my wife very happy but may i say what a wonderful person I think you are, to hear you talk so selflessly about giving your all to other people to make them happy was very humbling. I'm a bit of an emotional kinda girl an I had to hold back tears. Absolute pleasure to meet you and your family :) xx "
