“Ariana is one of the most intuitive and sensible people I’ve ever met – as a friend and as a photographer. She has a warm and kind energy so, when she first told me about Well Fed Photography I knew this will be so much more than just a great business. Ariana’s amazing sense for those little, everyday stories we all have but never have the time to appreciate, has created a lifetime memory of pure joy. It reminded us of the real values in life - all the while laughing our heads off! I’d be happy to recommend Well Fed Photography anytime and to everyone – it is one of the best presents ever you could give to your family and yourself. ❤️”
“Today marked a momentous & defining moment for me Ariana and I feel so blessed, supported, nurtured and cared for that you have been there to document my spiritual journey/awakening in such a gentle and compassionate way. I am so delighted that Karen gave me the initial recommendation ✨💕✨
The photos are INCREDIBLE from the memorial gardens and the bond between Aria and I is palpable in every shot. I feel aligned and tuned to her and this is visible which is amazing! It’s so special to see the joy, peace, love, gratitude and appreciation captured and it validates my personal growth and provides contrast to the more challenging time of my first Photo Session back in Oct 2019.
I will treasure all of these incredible pieces and I know Aria will gain a comprehensive insight into life before her new home. 💕”
“Ariana’s mindful approach to the attachment between mother and child was what drew me to her. It was no surprise to me that I encountered some profound moments on our playful forest walk. But what was most special was at the photo reveal I could see that Ariana had caught all the moments of connectedness; within ourselves, with each other and with nature. These are zero stereotyped mother child moments and involve the whole spectrum of emotions which are welcomed on the shoot. Prior to doing the photoshoot I had some anxiety around what I would look like, as most women do post baby. But from doing the session we felt so safe and secure that when I look at the photos now, I see how we felt and the fun we had exploring. Each time I look at my photos I get to relive those magical moments that are so easily ebbed away from our memories over time. I absolutely cherish them and each one contains a special message that reminds me of what is most important as we journey forward with our children, in gratitude for what we have learned along the way 🙏”
“I recently had a madonna and child photoshoot with Ariana in the lead-up to World Breastfeeding Week, and it was the most beautiful experience! She captured the most tender moments, and really caught our personalities and our bond in a really special way. Her photos are a welcome break from the fluffy newborn photography I saw everywhere, so if you are looking for something truly professional and very different to the usual baby photography, I cannot recommend Ariana highly enough. Enjoy!!”
“When I thought my breastfeeding journey might be coming to an end, Ariana suggested having some photos taken. I’d always been interested, but figured that after 20 months, our time for sweet baby nursing photos had passed. In the end, I couldn’t resist. Ariana did a fantastic job of capturing some precious moments! Feeding a toddler is a different experience, and I couldn’t be sure how he would react to being photographed, but Ariana kept things light and fun and he wasn’t bothered in the least. I’m so glad that we went ahead with it and I’m thrilled to have these photos to look back on forever! What a wonderful way to celebrate and document our experience. Thank you so much Ariana!”
“Ariana came to our home last summer (following COVID guidelines) to do a family shoot. We had never had one done before although always wanted to. She was so professional at all times and so easy going. Her lovely warm and friendly personality put everyone at ease straight away. She was so understanding about our family needs and catered to us. I would totally recommend this beautiful soul to do family and breastfeeding shoots, she just gets it! Thank you so much Ariana.”
“I had the good fortune of being chosen to contribute to Ariana's book of breastfeeding stories from women around Ireland. Ariana came to our house to photograph myself and my toddler as part of the book feature. We had the most lovely, relaxed afternoon in the house and the garden and Ariana made us both feel so at ease around her. The afternoon finished with tea and lots of chats! I've had professional photographs taken before but this experience was different and I couldn't put my finger on exactly why. Until my photo reveal....!! Everything about Well Fed Photography screams luxury. The incredible service, the amazing communication from Ariana, the experience during the photo shoot and Ariana herself. I therefore wasn't surprised by the incredibly professional photo reveal session that took place over a Zoom call. What I wasn't prepared for however, was the emotion that spilled out of me like a fountain the very second her stunning photo reel video started playing! My goodness I was blown away. The emotion and atmosphere that Ariana captured in those photos was beyond anything I have ever seen before or that I could ever have wished for. These are not photos, they're prescious life moments captured in art. The connection, the bond, the emotion and the personalities spilled out from those images of myself and my daughter and I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I will have these on my wall to treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Ariana! Not only are you incredibly talented but you're a beautiful soul too ✨💖”
“Ariana is the best!!! We LOVED all of the photos of our baby girl Logan. Ariana made us feel so comfortable during the whole shoot that she really captured our everyday lives with Logan. She also took her time to make sure she got the shots – we never felt rushed or felt like we had to manufacture any of the poses. She has a baba of her own so even gave us some helpful tips on Logan. She really is the best – can’t recommend her enough!”
