"Can’t stop looking at them, Sophie!   You’ve given us a wonderful variety of memories, atmosphere, things we missed witnessing on the day and family pictures that are literally unrepeatable because it’s so difficult to get so many together all at the same time.  We were thrilled that everyone went to so much trouble to make the occasion such wonderful fun and you’re the one who has captured it.  We’ll have many happy days poring through all the pages and choosing which ones to pass on.  The shots of the children are just fantastic !   Very, very many thanks – it’s a brilliant piece of work.  We really enjoyed meeting you and it was clear from the start that you were entering into the spirit of the day and making it something we’ll never forget. Love from us both, A&M"

"Thank you so much for the wonderful photos and videos. They are just so beautiful. You have got the most beautiful portrait shots of us all - even I look good : ) - and Sophie and Nicholas just look gorgeous. There are so many absolutely wonderful photos - it hard to pick which ones I like best. We all love the video. It is just like you said it just really captures a moment of our life and all the stop motion work so well - nicholas' favourite is the goat and troll one of course! and humpty dumpty! Tom loves the one of him and Sophie together. - Nicholas has already viewed it about 10 times - this is what he said this morning "grande sophie fait belles, belles, belles photos". loosely translated"big sophie does beautiful, beautiful, beautiful photos!” Armelle

"Gigantic thanks Soph, the pictures are absolutely incredible, they totally tell the story of our family and we LOVE them.  The kids thought you were brilliant too, I don't know how you do it - you managed to get the kids at their ultimate best at the same time as creating beautiful photos - so very impressed.  THANK YOU."

"The wonderful Sophie Mitchell has photographed my family twice - and I can honestly say those two days are up there with the happiest of my life!  The first was a relaxed 'fly on wall' documentary style shoot of my family in 'action'! It was hilarious. My then 4yr old daughter and 2yr old son rampaged through the park, dressed up in daft costumes at home and played in our makeshift kitchen (we had builders in at the time!) - while my husband and I were swept away with the whole thing, laughing and running around after them. It was all utterly natural and unposed; it genuinely surprised me that it was possible to be this carefree and uninhibited during a photo shoot. While Sophie provided surprise gifts such as silly-string to play with, told inappropriate and highly amusing poo jokes for the kids (ok, all of us love a poo joke) and chased and laughed along with us, she succeeded to capture truly intimate and special moments between each member of the family. We were all thrilled with the results; the photos, often taken in fast sequence, really tell a story and bring back so clearly that ridiculously fun day when we did nothing except laugh, run, tickle and enjoy each other as a family.  The second shoot two years later was under very different circumstances but still beautiful and memorable beyond words. As well as a highly respected and trusted photographer, Sophie now become a close friend Sophie photographed the birth of our third child. No mean feat for Sophie to even agree to this 'project; I could not give a day let alone a time for this busy and in-demand photographer! But Sophie dashed from her home in Sussex to London at 11pm (on her birthday!) to meet us when, finally, the exciting albeit nerve wracking time came.  To say I am impressed with Sophie's professionalism, empathy, sensitivity and well-placed humour is an understatement. I can't imagine being comfortable with having anyone else join my husband and me during such an intense and deeply personal time. Sophie was a pure joy and terrific support, and I'm delighted she was part of baby Margot's water-birth. The photographs capture every emotion from anxiety and pain to a bubbling hysteria of happiness! Every image literally takes our breath away; including a jaw-dropping shot of Margot rising up through the water, literally entering the world.  Thank you a million times over, Sophie Mitchell xxxxx” Lizzie

"I'm quite blown away by how amazing they are - a real treasure of the occasion!  I wanted family shots to celebrate two special birthdays and I'm so glad I booked Bubble&Bean. Soph was great with the kids and reluctant adults to get the best shots - and believe me, everyone has complimented me since as overjoyed with the photos. We will be rebooking...thoroughly recommended!” Victoria
