As soon as we met Otalia, she made us feel very comfortable with her warm, open, bubbly and genuinely friendly personality. She has an abundance of fantastic energy which powered all of us 5 adults. What’s crystal clear from the onset is Otalia’s love of capturing beautiful photos with a great eye both for the subject, framing, lighting and location. At every turn Otalia saw the opportunity for a beautiful moment; her passion is enlightening!
We had a wonderful afternoon and we now have beautiful images to cherish. Looking forward to working with her again!

Our session with Otalia was FANTASTIC and our pictures are BREATHTAKING! We couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with ☺️ She was extremely easy to get along with…actually, it felt like we had known her forever. We loved the way she was willing to get down and dirty to get the perfect shot. She was so good with our daughter and tried to incorporate all of her ideas for pics as well. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sweet London Photography to anyone and hope we will get to use her again someday. We can’t thank you enough for your amazing work Otalia.

Working with Otalia was a wonderful experience. She is a very talented photographer, who is warm, friendly, extremely patient and is excellent with children. The instant you meet her, it feels as though you have known her for many years. She made my family feel comfortable from the first photo of our session to the very last shot. Her flexibility in scheduling was very professional and she made it easy for us to have a complete session despite the rain. It was an absolute pleasure working with Otalia and we are looking forward to many more sessions with her during our time in London. Thank you, Otalia, for capturing such beautiful moments that we will cherish for many years to come.

My family was hoping to capture memories of our time in London, wrapping up two years of living here and heading back to our home country. We never dreamed we’d have such beautiful photos to take with us! Otalia has an eye for capturing gorgeous moments. We were instantly comfortable around her, making our shoot an incredible fun experience – making memories while making memories! Thank you, Otalia, for giving us such an amazing gift we will cherish always.

It is truly hard to find the words that encompass the amount of gratitude we have for Otalia and the photos she was able capture for us. From the first point of interaction to the last she displayed great warmth and professionalism; she is very efficient and very quick to communicate and to deliver her final product. We were a bit nervous and a bit awkward in the beginning of the shoot, but she made us feel very comfortable and gave great advice on positioning and poses as she managed to capture the most artistic and creative shots without us really even noticing. She has such a precise eye and pictures the most raw and special moments between us and the city as well as remembering any requests we had mentioned. We will treasure our photos and the memories made with Otalia forever. If she lived in the states we would never use another professional photographer again! We will be back to London and we look forward to booking with Otalia someday again!

Otalia made our special life event so memorable with her artistic photography. We loved the photos and received a lot of compliments from our friends too. It was amazing to see how Otalia could mix creativity with something that we always had on our mind. Apart from her awesome photography skills, something that also stood out about Otalia is the way she goes above and beyond to understand the special bond in the relationship and captures it so well. She was always so patient and gracious with her suggestions when needed. She is great with planning the entire event taking care of even the smallest details like where could find a place to sit and eat in between the shoot. Her attention to details really impressed us. She was thorough and prompt in all her interactions and so personable at the same time. And that happened to be our first visit to London and interacting with someone as wonderful as Otalia made it even more memorable. We absolutely enjoyed the photoshoot and ofcourse the outcome and look forward to any future opportunity to collaborate with her soon.

Otalia’s strength is truly displayed when you meet her. She is warm and smily, and she made us all – including the grand-parents – feel very comfortable and the session went very smoothly. She was particularly good at letting the little one carry on with his own activities, and being all natural, as well as stealing some beautiful smiles. When we received the sneak peek preview we were very excited, and once we saw the final pictures we were delighted. So thank you to Otalia for making Gabriel’s first birthday a special moment and allow us to keep such wonderful memories. The whole family loved the pictures!

When on vacation in London, I had the pleasure of working with Otalia, taking pictures throughout the city with my children. Working with her was a pleasure – she has a fantastic eye, a very easy going style that puts you right at ease. Our photos turned out amazing! I will definitely work with her again on our next trip to Europe.

Working with her before hand (even 7,000 miles away) was so easy – within a couple of days we had all of our plans made and it was so simple. I would give her the highest of recommendations!

It wasn’t our 1st professional photo shoot but it was definitely the best one yet! With a professional, warm atmosphere, we felt very comfortable instantly. Otalia is not only a lovely, friendly person but an amazing photographer,who is incredibly patient with a very active and curious toddler. The photo shoot was lots of fun. Otalia had tonnes of ideas to put us and our daughter at ease and make all of us laugh; Issie had a great time playing up to the camera! Different locations, angels, poses and ideas were skilfully implemented to result into a great number of absolutely amazing images!! More importantly, Otalia managed to capture our daughter’s personality and emotions of the day exceptionally well. We are very grateful and happy we found you:)

Otalia is simply the best!!! This was our first trip abroad with our 10 month old son and we wanted to capture our first moments with him in London. Otalia went above and beyond to get the most amazing shots of our family and I couldn’t be more pleased with our session. She is so easy to work with and interacted so well with our son. If you are considering getting your family photos made abroad all I can say is “go for it!”…and of course use Otalia! You won’t regret it!!

I had the opportunity to work with Otalia of Sweet London Family Photography in January 2015 on my visit to London for a baby moon with my husband. She went beyond what I expected from the London sights/maternity shoot we hired her to do. She was easy to work with and made us feel comfortable and happy on the very windy winter day we chose to book the shoot. The photos she captured are some of my favorite from any shoot I’ve been a part of. Otalia captured both us and who we are as a couple and the amazing city of London at the same time in some amazing shots. I am so grateful to have found her and that she was available during our week in London. Robin

Otalia did an amazing job of capturing our family of 3 teenagers an adolescent and two adults. She had all the best suggestions and also listened to our desires. She gave us pictures we will be sharing for years. We were visiting London from the United States and it was a huge trip for us and Otalia preserved our memories. My only regret is that she didn’t go to Ireland with us! If you are considering her service DO IT – you will not be disappointed.
