”I was really nervous about having my photograph taken, however,  Rachel made the session  so relaxing  and  enjoyable.  I  usually cringe when I see a photo of myself but I am delighted with the images and  feel  proud to use them for marketing.  Thanks Rachel you are a true  professional.” – Veronica Assadi

”We appointed Rachel to be Northumberland County Council’s ‘Be Digital’ project photographer having had Rachel highly recommended to us by a number of colleagues and contacts.  Rachel produces beautiful, high quality portrait photographs that are full of warmth and character – they really capture people’s personalities.  This aspect of Rachel’s work was key to us as we are working with women who run their own businesses….  Not only is Rachel a talented photographer, she is also highly professional and can be relied upon to take on any challenge and to deliver commissions punctually…….We would highly recommend RJM Photography to anyone looking for a professional photographer in the North East.” – Fay Cooper, Digital Strategy & Commissioning Manager, Northumberland County Council and Anita Nicholson, Project Coordinator, Northumberland County Council www.bedigital.org.uk

”We are absolutely delighted with our ‘sneak peek’ of our Knickerbocker photoshoot with RJM photography” Anna Louise Melling, Knickerbocker Babies retail photography

”Rachel not only made me feel at home and relaxed. But she also managed to make me look as well as feel a million dollars. I was hard pressed to choose one photo for my main publicity shot and have used almost all the others all over my website. I loved my afternoon and will certainly be back for family photos as well as professional ones.” Gillie Smellie

Back in the Autumn Rachel came along to one of our group sessions and I was immediately struck by how professional and friendly she was. I was nervous as were some of the other ladies but she immediately put everyone at ease with her warm friendly manner.
The photo shoot was fun and we laughed a lot which meant the photographs were so natural and Rachel managed to capture exactly what our groups are all about.
When I saw the final photographs I was really pleased. I loved the colours and I loved that Rachel had managed to convey the true spirit of our groups.
Thank you Rachel!” -Kim Scott, These Girls Can Run

”Rachel put me right at ease making sure I new what to do and where to stand. It was a very relaxing shoot and the photos have come out far better than I anticipated as I am not a fan of being in front of the camera normally. The shots are very natural and really bring out the best in my working environment. I would 100% recommend Rachel to anyone for personal or business shots any time.’ Lesley Wall, Doodle Bugs Ceramics

”Rachel has provided the Infant Feeding strategy team in Northumberland with posters of local women and their children as the backdrop to promoting key breastfeeding messages. Rachel has been a pleasure to work with as she is reliable, conscientious and importantly an excellent photographer.” – Debbie Wade Infant Feeding Co-ordinator, Midwife/Health Visitor for Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust

“I first met Rachel almost three years ago when my eldest daughter had her first professional photo taken. I now have two daughters and my house is filled with beautiful images of them at various ages, all taken by Rachel. I can’t imagine ever letting anyone else photograph my girls. Rachel knows that happy children produce the best pictures and having the sessions at home really helps to make sure that they feel comfortable and relaxed. Rachel is patient beyond words and allows plenty of time for outfit and backdrop changes, only concluding a session when she knows that you are entirely happy with the range of shots taken.  I will continue to use Rachel to document the lives of my girls as they grow. I may just need a bigger house with more space to display the results!’Sarah O’Hare

‘I can’t recommend Rachel highly enough. She did a photo session for my daughter and some of her friends and the results are absolutely stunning, capturing the characters of the children amazingly. My only problem is choosing between the images as they are all so good. Not only are the end results fantastic but the session itself was so easy, Rachel made sure she understood what I was after before taking photos – during the session I was just able to relax and drink coffee!. Thank you very very much.’ Lorna Watkinson
