Sharon: ( Various Sessions)

“Another amazing session and incredible images from Petra. Our family was first introduced to Petra through The Tiny Light Foundation. A charity that provides professional photography for children and families that have been faced with a life-altering diagnosis. We were connected with her and had our first family session done. I was deeply touched with her involvement with a charity like this and after chatting with her, meeting her for our family shoot and getting our images back, I was hooked. Is one really able to say “MY photographer” the way they do about their doctor or dentist? I do. We have had 6 different sessions now with Petra and I would NEVER consider going to box store photo sessions ever again. We have done a newborn session, a few of our yearly family sessions and most recently a 1 year birthday milestone session. MY photographer is deeply caring with her clients and passionate about every session she has with you. You really feel like you are her only client. It’s a special feeling and the images that come out of your session are proof of that. I would and have recommended her to people who are looking for “their” photographer. You will NOT be disappointed.

“Chris and I are so thankful to have met Petra King. Our first session was when Cole was 16 days old and she did such an excellent job of capturing our precious little baby in such an angelic way. She worked with such ease and skill at this first session and as first time parents we couldn’t believe it went so well but she certainly knows what she is doing! As the time approached, we were so excited for our 6 month and 1 year photo shoots, and again she so eloquently worked with Cole to capture priceless expressions and the best of our little man as he grew. Now that we have our milestone photos framed in our family room we can’t believe how wonderful it is to have this first year of his life so beautifully captured and displayed for all to see.  Thank you so much Petra!

Amanda: (Sweet Baby Plan)

“My husband and I would like to thank Petra for sharing with us and capturing our daughters most precious moments through her first year. We couldn’t have asked for more. Petra goes above and beyond to make your experience an absolute pleasure. Her level of skill, organization, kindness and warmth is exactly what every new set of parents look for when seeking someone to work with their new baby. We look forward to maintaining a relationship with Petra in the years to come…thank you so much for all you do!”

Petra we always have the most incredible experience in your studio and that resonates in the photos. Thank you for giving my family the greatest gift of memories to reflect such a precious time.

Christina: (Newborn & Sibling Session)
I cannot express enough how much I love the portraits that Petra took of my newborn son and my seven-year old daughter. Petra took such loving care of my newborn during the photo shoot, he was so content and I was able to relax and enjoy the moment.  She was able to capture the essence of those pull-at-my-heart-strings moments that we are lucky enough to have as parents. Her photographs of my children have become modern family heirlooms that we will treasure for years to come.

The Singleton’s: (Newborn & Family Session)
Going into this photo session for our son Charlie was so exciting, but we didn’t know what to expect at the same time. Thankfully Petra was amazing! From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left it was so relaxing and fun. Petra is easy to talk to and it’s great that she was still having a conversation with us while she was working with Charlie. She allowed us to have as much input into the photos and poses we wanted, but we left it up to her and her creative mind and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome! We also had delicious tea and scrumptious cupcakes made by her beautiful daughter. We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful photographs and such a great experience. Can’t wait for the 6 Month – and even more- the 1 year sessions.
Thanks again Petra King Photography!


“Just thought I’d take a moment to say what a truly gifted photographer Petra is.  I’ve now had the privilege of having Petra photograph all three of my children and I am truly amazed at her natural ability to capture just all of the right moments. Her attention to detail and the care with which each shot is taken is a testament to Petra’s professionalism and skill. There aren’t many photographers I would trust with my babies, but I know with Petra they are in good hands — she is meticulous in her work and so very patient and kind.  The quality of work you get is the same as if she were photographing her very own children. Petra – thanks for capturing the moments and memories! I’m looking forward to the next time…”


“Your work is amazing. We really would have regretted doing our photos with anyone else. The shots from the maternity session made me feel like a beautiful pregnant woman  – which is no small feat in the last few weeks of pregnancy!  The images you took of our children during the newborn session captured both of them perfectly – the smallness of our new wee one and the sweetness of his big sister’s new love for him.   I loved every single shot and I had such a hard time deciding which ones to order!  Kids grow and change so fast and I am happy to have such beautiful photos of them from this very special time.  Thank you!”


“Petra King was recommended to me when I was looking for a photographer to do head shots for my business.  Having never gone to a professional photographer before, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  She was very professional in setting up the studio appointment and answering questions beforehand.  The session was painless!  It went very quickly and she made me feel totally comfortable.
The proofs were ready quickly and each one was beautiful!  I had a hard time deciding!  All the feedback I have gotten has been so positive.  I love my pictures and highly recommend Petra!”

Liz & Daniel:

“My husband and I had the most wonderful experience with Petra during our sons’ newborn session. She is amazingly talented and it shows through our beautiful pictures. I can’t thank her enough for spending precious time with our sweet baby Daniel. She took this incredibly special time in our life and made it into memories we will be able to cherish forever. We are looking forward to doing many more family photo sessions with Petra King Photography in the near future.”

Michelle: after an email I sent her…
“Petra, I’ve just gotta say that when i see this headline, i get very curious, cuz frankly i cannot understand how you can possibly make things better than what they already are. Over the last few months, we have had the sheer pleasure of getting to work with you in an awesome summer session and then again when you saved my hide with your gorgeous Christmas cards…which everyone absolutely loved . Too often these days you either get professionalism with a cold demeanour or flakiness with the best of intentions. you, my dear, are a sincere, warm and true professional who has no trouble making everything look and feel easy. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts and all the best for a wonderful new year!!”

“Petra, I am so happy that you were available to take photos of our daughter at 8 days. Babies’ faces change so quickly and they get big before you know it. Those early days are so incredibly precious, and I couldn’t think of a better person to capture those moments. Thank you very much.”

“P, you’re work is amazing. I recommend you to everyone I know.”


“she was fantastic with my two little girls ….. adding a piece of candy at the end of our shot just gave her a few more amazing shots with dazzling bright eyes”

“Our session with you was so much fun, and I am so thrilled with the shots that came out of it! Your ability to keep my 19 month old engaged in it was amazing, and I can’t say enough about how wonderful the whole experience was! Everyone who I have shown the photos of Grace to have said how beautiful they are, and I am so happy that I have such wonderful photos as a memory of this all too short time in my child’s life!”
