“Mel & Nikki managed to capture the essence of us as a family, whilst putting us at ease, so we were free to relax and express ourselves. The ability to quickly build a great rapport with our young children combined with the ability to take beautiful pictures is a rare talent they both possess.” Katharine Cameron-Clarke, Somerset
“The pics are AMAZING! You are a pair of dream boats – thanks for your hard work and the tireless efforts, the results are really wonderful" Hannah and Gavin (Mells wedding, 2013)
“It was a delight to work with Mel and Nikki - they were both very professional and efficient, as well as being extremely helpful with their creative ideas and finding just the right models. Cannot recommend them highly enough." Fiona Hodges, MD and owner Bathsheba Designs
“When we asked Nikki & Mel to photograph the nursery children we were overwhelmed with the results. Not only did they capture each child's individuality-they built up a rapport and ensured the children were completely at ease with the process.
The photographs were taken both inside & outside and a trip to the local woods meant the setting to capture the perfect photographs were ideal.
The photographs were taken whilst the children were engaged in play or exploring the woods & some children had no worries about assuming the pose!
The thoughtful, artistic professionalism that Eaton & Woods offered gave our parents' irreplaceable photographs capturing moments in time that they will treasure. So much better than a traditional stark portrait that doesn't reflect your child's character"
Shirelle Norris, Mells Nursery manager 2009-2012
“My family and I had a wonderful photographic session with Mel and Nikki from Eaton & Woods. My youngest was just a tiny week old baby and we have some really beautiful pictures from that day. With two photographers they don’t miss a thing and whilst one might chat or put you at ease (especially children) you hardly notice the other snapping away. It is almost four years since then and we are planning to book another session this year. I have recommended them to several friends who have been equally thrilled.” Jess Hyde, Somerset
“I can’t recommend the Yearbook from Eaton & Woods highly enough, as well as a fantastic keepsake at the end of it,
the children had such fun with the process – reminiscing about their time and friendships at All Hallows. Eaton & Woods managed it brilliantly.” Ian Murphy, Headmaster, All Hallows School
“Nicki and Mel were a pleasure to work with, they took the most brilliant photos of my children and were incredibly patient and understanding about their behaviour on the day! They were also extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it came to choosing the pics and deciding how to frame them. We had so much fun and are thrilled to have a wonderful collection of photographs as a result.” Laura, Dorset
“Mel and Nicky spent an afternoon taking photos of my 3 children as I wanted a surprise Christmas present for my husband. Mel and Nicky put the children at ease very quickly and were a pleasure to work with. The results are beautiful, really relaxed, informal shots which is what I had hoped for. The present was a real success.”
Rachael Kenyon, Somerset
“The quality of the photographs was exceptional as both Nikki and Mel are really good at getting subjects to relax! A great team. Would highly recommend.” The Morgan family, Somerset
“I was nervous about getting a "formal" business shot done but Eaton and Woods made it a total delight. I really did not want the classic of sitting behind the desk looking into space and I knew with them that I would get something much more authentic, something that I was really happy with. They really got it, and made it fun rather than nerve wracking. I have gone from stressing about having a suitable pic for clients and partners to being proud to send out what I now have.” Ed Haddon, Career and Small Business Coaching
