“Iliana has been working with me for years in the UK. She’s consistently professional and positive and able to get the best out of the ‘model’ resulting in lovely images. I have booked her for portrait photos of my team, many large group photos of my choirs and she did an outstanding job roaming at our sell out performance at Wembley Arena. We have used her images on our website and marketing material and many National magazines and tabloids have printed her images of us. We miss her now she has moved to the USA and have even discussed travelling over to continue working with her on new images. I would highly recommend her for all types of photography and want to wish her well in her new home of America.”

“Iliana not only produced a beautiful set of family photographs for us, she was brilliant at engaging with our two small boys who started the day very reluctant to be photographed at all.  She has great insight into what works well for a shoot and as a result we ended up with far more than the one studio-type family portrait we originally came for.  In fact, some of the outdoor pictures she captured of the boys running around and playing freely in the local park are our most treasured. Can’t wait to work with her again – a true professional.

“We had a fantastic family photo session with Iliana. Despite our girls not having met her before she took time getting to know them and made them feel comfortable. After some initial ‘silly grin’ shots from our eldest daughter Iliana played with them and helped them to relax. This meant our end shots were natural and really reflected the girls personalities as well as how we are as a family unit. We never felt time pressured by Iliana and she was happy to go at our pace. The session was fun and we have had so many compliments on the finished photographs which we proudly display in our home. We used the framer recommended by Iliana and he said that in all his years at work and despite all the photographs he has seen Iliana’s are time and time again the best! Thank you Iliana for some amazing ‘captured’ moments in time!”

“Thank you for your amazing work.  Natural and absolutely gorgeous.The photos are a lovely memory of the 3-month milestone of our son.  We wish you were closer to us so you could take pictures of him now that he is 6 months!”

“We nearly cancelled on the day of the shoot as we were hoping to get some nice exterior shots as well as studio shots, and it was a rather a foggy day. Iliana persuaded us that it was still worth it. I am so glad we took her advice, we got some amazing pictures ! The kids were a bit cold, but Iliana had a great way with the kids and us to make us  feel relaxed and comfortable, all the while snapping away. We were only intending to  get a few pictures, but there were so many lovely shots it was very hard to make any kind of selection, especially after Iliana had worked her magic in post (even some of my wrinkles seemed to have disappeared !). It is a shame we now live so far from Illiana as we would definitely be booking in for a new set of pictures if we could.”
