Kind words

I booked a photography session with Russ as he was offering a session for the price of a donation to a children's hospice and I felt that said a great deal about him as a person as well as having seen his fabulous photographs! Russ's manner with my two young children was just delightful and he had them laughing and co-operating where I failed! His patience with my dithering over the pics (they were all so fabulous at capturing the personality as well as best side of my children it was impossible to choose!), was worthy of a saint. And when the postman managed to misread the 'DO NOT BEND' on the envelope when delivering my print, Russ yet again went out of his way to help sort it out. You often see people say 'I can't recommend him highly enough'. Well in this case every word of that is true!

Russ photographed our toddler and newborn twins! He was patient (as you can imagine with these 3!), gentle with the children and friendly. Above all he created wonderful photos that we have displayed in our home, they are just gorgeous. Russ really attends to every detail and is extremely approachable and professional. We recommend him highly.

For one of my Christmas presents I was given a voucher for Russ Jackson photography. As I have a grand-daughter of five years and twin boys born last October this seemed a marvellous opportunity to get some truly professional photos. I booked the appointment and was thrilled with the results as were my son and daughter-in-law. Russ obviously has a way with children as the pictures are stunning! I cannot praise Russ and his professionalism enough and from the first moment to the last the session was fun and pleasurable. I would like to wish him all the best for the future as he genuinely deserves it.

We booked a session with Russ last August. My younger daughter was a bit shy but he was patient and friendly and got her to relax. He took wonderful pictures of my girls capturing precious moments! I recommended Russ to a friend and she and her family also had high praises for him. Thank you Russ!

My husband and I called Russ to photograph our new little family. We had adopted our daughter from the US and were so excited to have some photos taken as soon as we came back to London. We scheduled an appointment right away. Due to some issues with our daughters visa we had to reschedule a few times. Most folks would have been annoyed; Russ on the other hand was flexible and accommodating. The day of the shoot, we were so nervous but Russ put us at ease immediately and assured us everything was would be fine. It was so much better than fine. I cried when I saw the photos that Russ took of our daughter. They were simply stunning. The photos of my husband and I made us look so tanned and rested which is a real miracle for parents of a newborn. These photos will be cherished for the rest of our lives. We look forward to working with Russ again when our daughter turns one. If you are looking for a photographer who produces wonderful photographs, is brilliant with babies, personable, flexible and professional, Russ is your man!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful pictures that you took of our family. We were really keen to capture our new arrival before he grew and coordinating a newborn and two bouncing boys cant have been easy but you managed it with care and ease and we simply love the results. The hardest part was choosing which pictures to buy as we loved them all. Once again thank you so much, we have recommended you to lots of our friends and family and will definitely use you again in the further.

We recently had the most wonderful photo session with Russ of our three children. The photos were better than I could have imagined, especially of my ten day old baby and we will cherish them forever. Could not be more thrilled - highly recommended. 

Sarah McMull - Barnet - Hertfordshire. 

Russ took the most amazing photos of our daughter and us as a family. He made our daughter feel so comfortable as she is extremely shy. Russ has produced beautiful amazing quality photos and the hardest decision was choosing from them all. The actual session itself was fun, enjoyable and relaxing. Russ is extremely good and professional at what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Our experience with Russ Jackson photography was an unforgettable one. He was very easy to get along with, and made us feel at ease and by the end of the shoot we were much more confident and had enjoyed ourselves tremendously! The photo shoot itself was such an enjoyable experience and so when we saw the resulting photos, they were an added bonus! Our friends and family loved them, and we would recommend this amazing experience to everyone

I have 16-month-old identical twin boys who are notoriously difficult to photograph well. Having previously had an unsuccessful photographic session with a different photographer earlier in the year, I came to Russ having seen gorgeous photos he took of a friend's three children a couple of months earlier. On the day of our session Russ was courteous, professional, relaxed and easy to talk to. My twin boys were not easy subjects, both having fallen asleep just before the session and neither enjoying being woken up before they were ready, my younger son spent most of the session in tears and being totally uncooperative. As the session drew to a close, I was dubious as to what the pictures would be like. To my utter amazement, Russ produced some lovely photos of my boys which I was delighted with and I am so thrilled with his work that the pictures are displayed in different sizes and settings all over my house. I cannot thank Russ enough for his patience and hard work on the day and I am looking forward to our return in a year or two to chart my boys' progress. I would highly recommend Russ to anyone wanting good quality, professional, clear, bright, sharp photos of their precious children to last them a lifetime and which will be treasured for ever. Thanks again Russ for such a fantastic job.

We were given a voucher for Russ to come and take photos of our son Michael who was then 10 months with me and my husband. We found that up until then, we had hundreds photos of Michael but very few of us as a family. I was a little worried about what mood Russ would find our son in as he was teething at the time however Michael immediately warmed to him and very quickly had my son performing like a pro for the camera. We ended up having many beautiful photos to choose from and decided to also give them as Christmas gifts to our extended family. I'm now pregnant with our second son and hope to book Russ again when the baby arrives for some updated family shots. 

Clare O'Farrell - Beaconsfield – Buckinghamshire 

I was very impressed with Russ's patience during our shoot. He was happy to wait while I fed my baby (it took ages!) to get pictures we'd all be happy with. The results were great ! We have some lovely newborn shots and some great pictures of my other kids with really natural smiles. We hope to ask him back in a few years to document our growing family!" 

Jennifer McCarthy – Finchley - London 

We are absolutely delighted with the photos Russell took of our son. He has a relaxed manner that gets the best out of the person being photographed, particularly children; our son is autistic and warmed to Russell and his camera immediately. The results are outstanding and his prices are worth every penny. Many thanks Russ! 

Peter & Maxine Rowe – North Finchley - London. 

Russ did an absolutely fantastic job and we couldn't believe what beautiful pictures he managed to take - especially since our daughter wasn't really in the mood to be photographed! Everyone who has seen the pictures comments on how lovely they are - we are thrilled with them! We would definitely recommend him and would use him again! Thanks so much! 

Jessica Kaerick – Finchley – London 

When Russ said he was going to come to my house I thought it would be a nightmare. My 19 month old hates staying in the house and never stays still. As it turned out, I was worrying about nothing, Russ has the patience of a saint! He got the best out of my son (who is also very shy) and really put him at ease. Russ also managed to get the most stunning photos, even capturing looks on my son's face that I missed despite never leaving the room. This is the second time Russ has taken photos of my son and I will be seeing him again next year when my new baby arrives. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Wow! What amazing pictures!!! Thanks so so much, I absolutely love each and every one!

I wanted to thank you for the photos - I can not stop looking at them! Really special memories that will be in our home for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Russ and Valeria!

Thank you so much for posting the prints and the USB stick! Everything is fantastic and will be a lovely keepsake for Darya when she is older. The packaging alone is top class!
