“You captured both boys so perfectly and the shoot itself was a real pleasure. I was worried that my eldest wouldn't be keen but you put him at ease and he really enjoyed it. My mum loves the pictures of her grandsons so much they made her cry! I have been recommending you to everyone. ” (18month and 3yr old)


“Breathtaking photos, I cry every time I look at them.” (Bump and then 5 day old photoshoot)


"Thank you for the beautiful images of our girls, you've really captured their character and they had so much fun during the shoot. We now have some stunning pictures to add to our family photo album which we will treasure." (1yr and 5yr old)


"You made me look like a pretty cool dad!! Thank you." (Dad of three).


"I had a wonderful shoot with Sonya and my little girl and my baby boy who is now 6 months old. My daughter is usually very shy in front of the camera but Sonya really brought her out of her shell and made her feel completely at ease. Before I knew it she was having the best time and loved having her photo taken. Sonya has some amazing ideas and I am delighted with the photos.” (2 weeks and 4yr old)


“LeviLily Photography skilfully captures precious moments in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. A thumbs-up from Kane and family!” (Family shoot together with daughters 8yr and 5yr old and the family pet)


"We recently had some photographs taken of our new nursery and Sonya was a joy to work with. As a person, she is friendly, relaxed and really intuitive and so her photography mirrors this perfectly as we were provided with some beautiful, natural and artistic pictures. The children were really at ease and responded brilliantly to her and she was able to capture the essence of the environment and the atmosphere so well. She also has great ideas and likes to work with clients so that they are involved in producing the end result - we would highly recommend her!" (Binky’s Hampstead)


"Wow..... I don't know how you managed it but you made all of us feel so relaxed that the smiles are truly genuine. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you massively for capturing a lovely morning with our growing family. It is so easy to let these days go by in a blur but we have these memories forever thanks to you". (Mum of newborn and 3yr old)


Gorgeous wedding at the stunning V&A Museum and from the bride and groom "A MASSIVE thank you, Sonya, for such beautiful pictures. Saying 'yes' to you was a decision we'll always cherish!"


"Thank you for the beautiful images of our girls, you've really captured their character and they had so much fun during the shoot. We now have some stunning pictures to add to our family photo album which we will treasure."


I've just received your shots of my boys and wanted to let you know how delighted I am with them. The boys look so happy and relaxed - it's exactly what I wanted". (2.5yr and 5 yr old)


"Part of my job as an actress is to communicate my personality through photographs. It is so important to find a photographer who can really find the essence of you and produce the perfect image. Sonya does this with understanding and charm. Her shoots are always truly professional, relaxed - and fun!"


"LeviLily Photography did the photos for my website. As an Alexander Technique teacher, it is vital that images fully convey what happens in a lesson as it's not easy to do with words! Sonya immediately put me at ease. We worked together to come up with different 'scenes' using different items in the room and angles. This made the shots really personal. It was a very grey day so I was expecting it to be difficult to get a good light but she managed it and the photos look very bright and warm. We came away with so many usable images that I had too many for my website and therefore an extensive gallery to use for all my marketing materials too. I couldn't recommend Sonya more highly for a personal, enjoyable photo shoot".


"Wonderful photos. We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay, you're welcome back any time! " Villa Pia , Umbria, Italy. 
We stayed for 5 days over the photoshoot with such wonderful hospitality and food (all inclusive, I seriously couldn't have eaten more delicious, fresh food, all cooked on site), the kids didn't want to leave. If you ever fancy an award winning, very relaxed, family friendly bolthole 
Villa Pia is nestled at the foot of the medieval castle of Lippiano, with postcard-perfect Tuscan views. It is a pretty magical place, an 18th-century manor house set in five acres of box-hedged gardens and vineyards near the village of Lippiano on the Tuscan/Umbrian border. 


"Sonya did a fantastic job in making my tired old mug look vaguely normal. I'm not the most relaxed person when it comes to having my photo taken, but she really put me at ease, and made what I would usually find a chore into a pleasure. I can't recommend her services highly enough, and was thrilled at the portfolio of photos she produced for me."
