Having our maternity and newborn photoshoot with Izzy was such a pleasure. She made experience with Hikari Lifestyle Photography so wonderful and the pictures show exactly that! Professional yet so personal. We will treasure her photography of the most special moments of our lives always

I had my maternity photoshoot with Isabelle; we shared some ideas and she really listened to me - I wanted to make the photos unique, dreamy and feminine. She discussed with me in advance and wanted to make sure I felt comfortable with the dress she prepared. On the day at the start I was a bit nervous so she helped me with some posing, giving me lots of prompts on how to look best posing pregnant. Between a few shoots she would show me the pictures so I can see what angle I like and look the best in. She is so talented. Very good at finding flattering angles and made the photos look very natural and elegant. I was very surprised at the results when I received some pictures. I can't recommend her enough!

Before going for the shoot I was really worried that I would look really awkward, as I could never act naturally during any shoots. However, during the shoot Isabelle kept giving me advices on how I should pose, where my hands should place and how to pose for the most natural facial expression. Throughout the whole shoot she kept praising me and acted really excited to see how every shot looked, which increases my confidence. Isabelle made the whole photoshoot easy and fun. The style of her photography gives a really warm and natural vibe. I would highly recommend Hikari Lifestyle Photography to anyone that’s interested in getting a maternity or family photoshoot.

I booked Isabelle for my maternity photos and before our shoot I was concerned that I would look super awkward but I really wanted to do a boudoir maternity session. I didn't like my skin tone, I was self conscious about the stretch marks and the rash around my belly.  During our session Isabelle explained how the session will run, she put nice relaxing music on and the session was so relaxing. She gave a lot of positive comments during the shoot, and she's easy to talk with. The best part of the photoshoot was she present some of photos during shooting and it shows how good her skill is. I never imagined myself looking like this. I would definitely recommend people to reach out Isabelle for maternity photos. 

"Isabelle did both our maternity photos and newborn family photos and provided us with beautiful photos which we will always cherish. She made the whole experience easily and effortless, which is exactly what you want when you are pregnant/have a newborn. From posing to bringing everything to our home including a maternity dress for me to wear and a coffee to help us look alive! As an added bonus Isabelle was not only great with our baby, she was amazing with our dog and got very cute photos of her as well. I think our dog wanted to go home with her! I would highly recommend Isabelle for any family and maternity photos and to capture those special moments."  -- Tiarnah

"We met Isabelle at the pier and right away felt relaxed because she had set up a little area for us, brought 2 maternity dresses from her client closet and was ready to go. she was so patient when our baby was getting upset and didn't rush us, allow us time to parent. We were so comfortable around her. Within a few days we already had some sneak peek photos sent through and not long after we had the full gallery and they were so beautiful. I can't wait to have them on display in our home. The colours are so soft and perfect. The online platform that they are sent through with is so so easy to download the photos from and you can pick which ones to print. Really easy to use. Thank you Isabelle for capturing these perfect little memories for us." -- Rileigh 

"We were absolutely blown away by our maternity shoot photos. Thank you so much Isabelle for capturing this special time in our lives so perfectly. Your direction and skill behind the camera was amazing, you made us feel confident and the results were beautiful. You really are talented, and we could see how much you love what you do! We can't wait for our newborn shoot!!" -- Mel & Onur

We had photo sessions with Issy three times. We love her editing style (warm and airy style) and all of the photos she took & edited for us are amazing. Such a great experience. She's so friendly and professional. I definitely want to have sessions with her again! Highly recommend!
