Absolutely amazing!!!! I was lucky to have maternity and newborn shoot with Vicki (not Penny as some assume :)) both of which were such a brilliant experience. My maternity shoot was lovely and so nice to have some “me time” before baby came along, it made me feel all fuzzy inside and I left with a huge smile on my face! Our newborn shoot was also so lovely both me and my partner were amazed with Vicki’s knowledge and love for the little ones, and even went home with some fab sleep tips! We also purchased a canvas from Vicki, of which I have never seen quality so good before! All in all amazing lady, amazing experience, amazing products and photos! Cannot recommend Pennycress enough!

Fantastically talented! My little one was lucky enough to be a model in one of Vicki’s training courses and the environment she created was lovely and welcome, calm and friendly. The patience she had for the 4 hours we were there getting the babies asleep, and putting them into positions and waiting for them to be comfortable was amazing! The props she chose and used came effortlessly but seemed perfect for the shot. A dedicated photographer that I would always recommend and tell my friends about! Thank you again Vicki for a wonderful day and a gorgeous photo to treasure. x  Jodie
Having a baby is the best experience of your life.  The second best experience was having my baby photographed by Vicki Huckle at Pennycress Photography. In a relaxed environment, surrounded by beautiful props (and sweets yum!!) we had an amazing day and came away with a warm feeling.  Vicki is without a doubt the most professional, caring and safety conscious photographer we have ever met and would recommend her services to anyone!! (in fact, I have already bored all of my friends and family with endless photos and cooing about my pictures!!)    Claire B

Andy and I knew we wanted some newborn photos taken when our little girl was born,something special. A friend of mine introduced me to Pennycress and i made contact with Vicki.Vicki was really helpful and we booked in a session for a few days after our little girl was due. Her professionalism and knowledge of newborns made Andy and I feel relaxed during our session.The photos are outstanding ,more than special and we cant wait to have another session with Vicki.  Sonia x

 What a fantastic experience. We had our last baby and wanted permanent reminders of this wonderful time with our 4 children. The children loved the afternoon, they felt very comfortable and were given great direction. The quality of the photographs were superb. Our baby was only a week old but Vicki’s magic technique had him sleeping peacefully in his best pose very quickly. The pictures on our walls have made us very happy. We will be back in a few years for more and couldn’t recommend Vicki highly enough.     Nicola C

The photo shoot for my 4 day old little girl was fantastic. You made us both feel very at ease and comfortable, especially as I was a bit nervous as Enya was so tiny. The photo’s are amazing and every-one that comes to our house always comments on how beautiful the photo’s are and they make me smile every-time I look at them.
I will cherish these photo’s for the rest of my life and all the photo’s are beautiful, classy and most of all, amazing quality.  Donna F

 The whole session went really well although I was a little nervous having a naked newborn boy could be a receipe for disaster but luckily he behaved.  I received a lovely set of pictures from the session which I have used to recommend Vicki to lots of my friends who have recently had babies or are due later on in the year. I also fully intend on booking in again when Benjamin is a little bigger.   Tracy E

We took our son to have photos taken with Vicki when he was 2 weeks old. She was brilliant with him and so patient! The finished photos were amazing we are so glad we got those first few weeks captured as he has changed so much already and it was only 6 weeks ago! We are still trying to decide which photo to buy as we love them all! We highly recommend Vicki and will definitely be getting more photos done with her when he is a little older. Laura

    We are extremely happy with the photos of our son, Felix, from Pennycress. We had them taken on his 1-month birthday and I was worried that he would be too old to capture in some of the cute, curly poses that newborns are able to create. However, Vicki was very friendly, professional and patient, which helped to ensure that Felix stayed fast asleep and Vicki was able to create the gorgeous photos we had hoped for. I would recommend Pennycress to every new parent – we are probably going to return for his 1st birthday for a Cake Smash! Tom & ColleenReplyCancel

    The photoshoot I experienced with my 1 year old son is a memory I will treasure forever. She was so great at putting Jacob at ease and he had such fun playing and being the centre of attention that the photos were a true representation of his cheeky smiley personality. I received a lovely photo of both of us together that is priceless and a great one of his cheeky smile playing with his shoe that I have had made into a HUGE picture on my landing. Every morning I walk out and see it and it makes me smile too. I would recommend her to everyone.ReplyCancel

    I went to see vicki at pennycress photograpy this week for my maternity shoot and after being very unsure and nervous about the idea of being photographed when heavily pregnant i am soooo pleased that i made the decision to book with pennycress photograpy. Vicki had a fantastic natural approach to making you feel very relaxed and comfortable, she spent time discussing with me what i wanted and what i felt comfortable with and then together we decided on what would work best. The studio was a lovely relaxed environment to be within and i thoroughly enjoyed the morning escaping the madness of my everyday life, i left feeling very excited and i am looking forward to returning with my newborn in a few weeks. Vicki has allowed me to capture some beautiful memories that i can look back on in many years to come, i would highly recommend pennycress photography a fantastic experience that il never forget, thank you vicki, victoria arpels xReplyCancel

    I love the newborn stage, and they change so quickly. I had tried to book in, but Vicki was full. Luckily enough she needed a model. I have no hesitations in recommending Pennycress. My photos were beautiful, exactly what I had hoped for. She is very gifted, and I will treasure my photos forever. I’m booking again for next year. My only advice is book asap, I was so close to missing out. Thank u so much.ReplyCancel

  • Helen MelvilleDecember 26, 2014 - 8:17 pm

    Vicki, thank you so much for the fabulous pictures of our little one. We are finding it so hard to choose how many we want as we would love to have them all (and may well do so!!). We enjoyed the shoot so much, your studio was perfect, you came up with so many ideas to complement the suggestions for shots that we had and the photos themselves are just so beautiful. I was sad that we missed out on a newborn shoot when our baby arrived so early and threw us into chaos but we are so pleased with these pictures I no longer mind. We will be back for a cake smash I think!! Thank you. xxReplyCancel

    We enjoyed the session immensely and felt at ease. Vicki listens to parents’ suggestions and took a variety of different shots. i felt extremely confident with her holding and positioning newborn Clara and i enjoyed watching the session unfold. the photos are beautiful and it was a delight to share these images with family. Vicki takes care over all aspects from baby safety to parents’ comfort, editing of photos and presentation of finished product. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    So so pleased with our photos. I was really anxious being a new mum leaving the house for 4 hours, but if couldn’t of felt more relaxed and at ease once I got there. Vicki is warm and welcoming and a master at her job. Highly recommended, we’ll be back for more without a doubt! XReplyCancel

  • Heidi StandleyJanuary 18, 2015 - 11:02 am

    It was a wonderful experience, having pictures taken of our newborn son in February 2014. He was a big boy at 10lb, and very difficult to settle but Vicky settled us in and was extremely patient as I changed and fed him and rocked him, until at last we managed to achieve some stunning images which we will treasure forever.ReplyCancel

  • Colleen HubbardJanuary 18, 2015 - 6:31 pm

    We were so pleased with Pennycress Photography’s photos of our son, that as soon as the due date was confirmed for our daughter, we booked her in! I can’t recommend Pennycress Photography enough – Vicki made us feel very comfortable and has the patience of a saint! She captured some beautiful images of our daughter. We simply wouldn’t go anywhere else!ReplyCancel

  • Nicola GiammelloJanuary 18, 2015 - 10:07 pm

    We booked a newborn session for our little boy, who arrived a month earlier than expected and Vicky was really accommodating. Her photos are simply stunning and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Vicky is so lovely, easy to work with and extremely creative. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a maternity, newborn or family photographer!!ReplyCancel

  • Kerrie WrightJanuary 20, 2015 - 3:41 pm

    We booked our newborn session for our little girl who arrived 12 days early. The studio was lovely and our little girl was lovely and relaxed. We had some amazing photos done of our little girl and also some family pics so have some great pics to look back on. Vicki is amazing at what she does and really captures the moment. Thank you Kerrie xReplyCancel

  • Becca JackmanJanuary 20, 2015 - 4:02 pm

    Pennycress Photography captured my dreams (my baby girl) in the most fabulous and creative photographs. Her setting is perfect and Vicki understands your requirements and then surpasses them (by far). Vicki goes a long way to make you feel welcome and to make you and your baby relax in a calm and friendly. All this achieved, when your baby is just a few days/weeks old. There is no one quite like Vicky, she is a true artist.ReplyCancel

    We were so pleased when Vicki had a slot over the Christmas period to photograph our beautiful baby daughter and we were thrilled with all of the images. We cannot recommend Pennycress Photography enough. Vicki captured amazing and unique photographs that we will treasure forever. Highly recommended.ReplyCancel

  • Keela FrancisMarch 16, 2015 - 12:52 pm

    We are absolutely delighted with our newborn photos. Vicki is a fantastically talented photographer. When we attended for our shoot she was very welcoming and professional. Our daughter was uncomfortable with tummy pain, which presented a challenge with positioning. However we were very impressed with Vicki’s caring approach. Her endless patience meant she captured some stunning shots. We purchased the images as digital files and also ordered two canvas prints. We would definitely recommend ordering a piece through Vicki as the canvas prints are of exceptional quality. The studio is a very pleasant and relaxing environment, which was kept at a lovely warm temperature throughout the shoot. We would definitely recommend Vicki’a services and will certainly be returning to her in the future.ReplyCancel

    We are so pleased with the photos captured by Vicki of our newborn twins. She captured some very cute photos of our littles ones and even managed some awesome family shots which are now all over our house! Vicki was extremely patient with me having had a C section 5 days earlier and took the time to make sure the perfect pics were captured. We didn’t feel rushed and in fact we were made to feel very welcome. We cannot wait for our sitting up session and look forward to seeing her later in the year.ReplyCancel

  • Beccy BranchJuly 16, 2015 - 5:25 pm

    Vicki has the most amazing vision and a huge amount of patience! Vicki made us feel very comfortable and was great with our son Noah who was not the most cooperative when it came to having his photo taken! Vicki was professional throughout and we absolutely love our photos, we will treasure them forever. Looking forwards to our next shoot already! Cannot recommend Pennycress photography highly enough! Looking forwards to hanging our amazing photos on the wall!ReplyCancel

    Following our cake smash with Vicki I wanted to say how fantastic we thought you were. Thank you so much for accommodating Oscar’s egg allergy and capturing some lovely moments between the 4 of our babies – especially between Oscar and Charlie! That picture is adorable!
    We loved all of our images and we are spoilt for choice with the images of Oscar! You were so very patient with our mobile and fussy four and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting beautiful keepsake images of their little ones – if only we’d known about you when Oscar was first born! Thank you!ReplyCancel

    I first saw the quality of Vicki’s work a long time before my girlfriend even fell pregnant. I used to be her postman and was intrigued as to what she actually did after delivering many parcels to her house labelled Pennycress Photography, so I googled it to have a peek. I showed my girlfriend the pictures in her gallery and instantly we both knew that if we ever had a little one that it would be a dream to be able to have pictures like that to treasure forever. A couple of years later Maria and I were expecting a little boy and we booked in with Pennycress. Due to various reasons, including our baby arriving early, it proved very tricky for us to actually get to a shoot but throughout the whole time Vicki offered help wherever she could to get us there. It truly means something to her that you’ve chosen her to do your shoot, you’re not just a number going in and out the door, it’s personal to Vicki. This is evident throughout the shoot and her expertise is second to none. Her studio is amazing too, such a nice comfortable atmosphere and absolutely looks the part, Vicki has the patience of a saint and nothing is ever too much. We’re so pleased we could actually get to the shoot, the results are something we can treasure for the rest of our lives….. we just can’t recommend Pennycress Photography enough!!ReplyCancel

  • Hannah CordellOctober 7, 2015 - 9:31 am

    We returned to Pennycress photography for another newborn session after having beautiful pictures of our daughter 4years ago!
    In addition to our little man & we decided to take his big sister along to see if we could get a couple of photos of the two of them together… and we are so pleased with the results…Vicki managed to capture some gorgeous images providing a mix of stunning & some funny which we love!😀
    It was a lovely informal atmosphere in a beautiful studio and Vicki went out of her way to make sure our little girl was kept entertained with toys etc too and she loved the whole experience so much she didn’t want to leave!!
    Thanks so much Vicki for managing to capture this special time xReplyCancel

Vicki has a brilliant way and our son is very relaxed and seemed to genuinely enjoy his session. Vicki has a very professional and calm persona and the best selection of props! Already booked for our cake smash next year! Thank you again Vicki xReplyCancel

    Me and my partner were very lucky to book in with Vicki to have a newborn shoot for our daughter Ella-Mae. We unfortunately had to spend some time in hospital with our little girl which meant we couldn’t make our original appointment but Vicki was so accommodating and happily rescheduled a new date with us. Vicki has been very friendly and made us feel so comfortable whilst still maintaining a high level of professionalism throughout. We were so pleased with the outcome of the the photos that we couldn’t choose which ones to have so brought them all as they were just so fantastic 😊 We would highly recommend Vicki to all of our friends and families as she captures all those special moments you only get one chance of getting and will defiantly be revisiting her in the future. Thanks again Vicki we totally love our photos. XReplyCancel

  • Kristina MihalopFebruary 23, 2016 - 9:08 pm

    Having missed out on a shoot with our first born, we made sure we got in early with Vicky with our latest arrival. We are so pleased that we chose Penny Cress to do our photographs! The whole experience was amazing, very relaxed and enjoyable for us all. You can tell Vicky works with newborns a lot. She was extremely professional but at the same time friendly and made us all feel at ease. We cannot speak highly enough of the end results either! The worst bit of the whole thing is deciding which pictures to have as they are all fantastic. Thank you very much, we look forward to our catch up when Max is sitting up.ReplyCancel

    Vicki did a sitting up session with our 9 month old little girl Nyla. From start to finish she was amazing. We had to cancel our first session as she was unwell and Vicki was great understanding and squeezed us in when she was well again. The session was brilliant she was a natural with Nyla and made her feel at ease in a warm comfortable environment. The photos were beautiful and captured our little daughters personality beautifully. Would highly recommendReplyCancel

    We recently met Vicki after admiring her work for a few years. I had the perfect excuse to book a mini session as we had a 3 month old baby!

    Although the shoot was only 20 minutes long, Vicki was very relaxed and in full control throughout, managing to capture beautiful images of my son and baby daughter. Nothing was rushed and there was even time for a change of outfit and a quick feed before finishing the session.

    With it being the run up to Xmas and knowing how busy it would be for Vicki, I was not expecting my images to be with me 3 weeks later!

    I am in love with every one of the photos and cannot wait to put them up in our home. As well as having beautiful images, we also have precious pictures of both our children together.

    Thank you Vicki, they are truly magical!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa BramfordDecember 15, 2016 - 5:20 pm

    We throughly enjoyed our shoot with Vicki, from the minute we arrived she made us feel relaxed and at ease.

    Vicki was so patient throughout the shoot and had lots of tricks to try to soothe and settle our daughter to obtain the required poses. Although Tilly was unsettled on the day we were able to gain some shots and Vicki kindly allowed us to return another day to finish the shoot.

    I love looking back at our shots now, 4 months on Tilly had changed so much the early shots are really precious.

    We can’t wait to return.

    Thanks LisaReplyCancel

    We booked a Christmas Mini Shoot and the service has been outstanding from start to finish. Vicki was brilliant with the girls (almost 1 and 4 years old) they warmed to her really quickly even though they had fallen asleep in the car on the way there. The photos are absolutely beautiful, ordering digital prints was super easy and our family loved their Christmas gifts! Thank you so much Vicki.ReplyCancel
