We were lucky enough to win a photograph session for an animal when we entered a raffle for the Riding for the Disabled. As it was a charity event, Mel Taylor had put herself forward to offer to take a free photograph of a pet, so I picked up the phone and arranged for Mel to come over and photograph our dog Spencer. Mel is great fun and very imaginative, not only did she take some still life photos of Spencer, but she also had him running across the field at the back of our house and the photos of him charging through the grass are fantastic. She really caught his personality and as he is an English Springer there are some amazing shots of him springing across the field, Mel also put a DVD together with music which we have shown to all our friends. Mel is a truly talented photographer and I would recommend anyone to have their pet photographed by her. Spencer is a very special dog who we love very much and we will be able to treasure the photographs and DVD of him forever.

"Mel came to see me to take some photos of my Cocker Spaniel puppy, Ella at home. To say the photos were stunning is an understatement, they were simply gorgeous and captured every little puppy characteristic. Mel was amazing with Ella and is kind, patient, friendly and made it all fun. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

We spent a fantastic afternoon watching a consummate professional at work, Mel was fantastic, she was so patient with 2 wolfhounds being typically disobedient, her understanding of how to take the pictures as fascinating and produced some amazing results. We were also thoroughly impressed by her after service, informative, very proactive and professional. All in all great results which have captured the essence of beauty 2 wolfhounds portray. I would thoroughly recommend Mel for her professionalism, personal service, value for money and wonderfully artistic work - M Boydon.



As the owner of two black Labrador puppies, I asked Mel Taylor if she could photograph them togetherfor me. The results were amazing. How she managed to get them both looking at the camera I'll nver know. The setting and the use of an old wheelbarrow were an inspired choice. Since then, she has photographed them whist out on a hill walk at sunset and even against a black background!!! You wouldn't believe the results! This photographer has incredible imgagination! She is highly professional, has a great studio and take every care with the developing of her photos! Nothing is ever too much trouble and I would highly recommend her services. You wont be disappointed.

We loved our newborn photo shoot - the photos were beautiful
23 January 2014

Scooby & Zoe are a challenge to photograph separately, together I thought would be an impossible task. Mel knew exactly what to do to get some amazing shots, both still & full action shots, out at a beautiful location in the woods. The dogs were really relaxed and happy throughout the shoot. The photographs were all so good that we couldn't possibly choose between them - we will cherish them all forever. We are thrilled with the photographs & really couldn't recommend Mel enough.


I had wanted a painting of Tess our miniature schnauzer and needed a photo taken to give to the artist.Mel Taylor came around and caught Tess pottering in the garden totally unaware that she was posing and she took some fabulous photos of her for us to choose from,all natural,catching her personality beautifully.Mel also sent me some lovely photos of Tess looking like a snow plough last winter so i cannot recommend her more highly.

We wanted to make sure we captured some of the early moments of our baby daughter Eleanor's life and Mel certainly did that for us. The whole experience was very relaxed and with Mel's experience with newborns it meant we could keep Eleanor peaceful and sleepy, to ensure the process wasn't stressful for anyone. We even managed to include our dog Alfie in some shots which I didn't think would be possible.
There were so many fantastic pictures it was very difficult to choose.
Mel was extremely patient, friendly and kind and we will definitely be using her again...thank you

Mel has produced us the most amazing wedding photos. As Mel also specializes in animal photography (which is why we chose Mel for our wedding) we included the horses and dogs too, the images are simply stunning. Thank you.

So patient with the babies and such a lovely and calming experience. Thank you!

Had a lovely morning with Mel and my two labradors yesterday at the bluebell woods, lots of fun. Thank you Mel!

What a wonderful experience today! Looking forward for the future photo sessions!
