Your Feedback

  • What can I say about Saraya - well her photography skills speak for themselves, so I will say that she is one of the nicest people you could wish to meet and every time we have taken our children to see her she has had them wrapped around her little finger. My eldest has aspergers and he adores her. She brings the best out of her pictures because she brings the best out in children!
