Taryn was the ultimate professional at our daughter’s newborn session. Taken in the comfort of our own home Taryn came equipped with a truck load of props. Her warm and caring nature allowed us to relax and more importantly bub to settle. Taryn understood that our daughter dictated the day and she was very understanding and didn’t rush to get the perfect shot. Taryn went above and beyond to ensure we got all we wanted. We were very pleased with the range of shots we had to choose from and would only be too happy to recommend Taryn. Thanks, Lacey and Matt McCormackJuly 2013

We recently decided to have some family photos taken but I was a little worried about my 15 month old and how she would cooperate. Taryn from Essence Photography was fantastic! She was so easy-going with us and that really helped to create a relaxed mood for our outdoor beach photo session. When we saw our photos, we were amazed at the fantastic quality and also how natural they looked. We have had so many compliments about them and the hardest part was trying to decide which photos to choose! Thank you Essence Photography for helping us create some beautiful memories of our little family.Erin WynneMay 2013

I just wanted to post on here my THANKS and gratitude for what will be a VERY difficult session tomorrow for you. Kids and animals never mix right ;o) Goodluck with that by the way! On a serious note, this session will be most difficult for us, especially as we are trying to "pretend" to our girls that nothing is going on. We are most fortunate that you have been so accomodating and are dropping everything to do this for us. It means the world to us, and for that we appreciate it! These will be memories we will treasure forever! Thank you Thank you Thank you in advance. (Hopefully its not too much mayhem!!) xxxxTaryn, Our Winnie passed this morning in Kens arms. We are all so gutted. I sit here looking at our beautiful photos that you took, and are so grateful that we were able to get them done, and are eternally grateful at the amazing job that you did at our shoot. You captured Winnie exactly the way we want to remember him. THANK YOU so much for giving us beautiful memories that we will treasure forever! He wasnt just a dog to us - he was our baby boy. Thank you for respecting that! xxxxMonica CalderwoodMay 2013

Taryn,I Would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for our wonderful photo shoot and photos of our baby girl. You were a real natural behind the camera and took the most amazing photos. You captured Lilah perfectly. I highly recommend you to anyone wanting the perfect photo of their family. You made the entire process so easy and exciting and you were available anytime via email, facebook and mobile. I can't wait to use you again when our family grows. Thanks again xx your photos will be admired for many years to come.BelindaApril 2013

Taryn, just wanted to say a big thank you for the session you did for us on our " little garden fairy". You were so accommodating and made us feel very at ease during the session. My kids felt comfortable with you, it just felt like a day at the playground instead of a photo shoot. The pictures where you encouraged her be herself turned out to be our favourite. It just captured her personality and the photos didn't look staged. I will highly recommend you to all my friends who are keen to get some photos done. Thanks again for for the magic moments that you have captured for us.Jenny and DomMarch 2013

Taryn photographed our wedding in September 2009 and my husband and I could not have been happier with the results! Taryn's bright and bubbly personality helped us relax, laugh and enjoy the day. The photographs were spectacular and we were happy to see there was a mix of posed and natural shots. Before Taryn photographed our wedding she gave us lots of helpful advice such as locations close to the Church where we might have liked to have our photos taken and a very helpful tips for the bride - to bring foundation to the location for a touch up! And when I forgot this tip it didn't matter because Taryn had some on hand! Taryn fit in around the bridal party, Priest and guests, never having to ask us to repeat anything again or interrupting the flow of the day. Our experience with Essence Photography and Taryn was one we will cherish forever. Thank you!Samantha & Darren OraziSeptember 2009

Taryn from Essence Photography brought a personal, creative and unique touch to our wedding. She was professional from start to finish, very easy to get along with and eager to please. We have seen a selection of images from our wedding already and they are simply amazing!! Family and friends were delighted to be able to see these so soon after the wedding and the photographs captured the mood perfectly. The photography was certainly one thing I didn’t have to worry about on the day as Taryn was punctual, prepared and a perfectionist. I would recommend Taryn from Essence photography to anyone that is thinking about hiring a photographer who will make the memories of the most special day of your lives last forever!Chantal and Jeremy Munro 26th March 2011
