We had a wonderful experience with the lovely Asya! Having ‘won’ a session at a charity auction, I wanted to get some informal shots showing the love between my three generations of women – myself, my mum and my daughters. For good measure, we were joined by Rolo our chocolate Labrador. We had such great fun and the photos are fabulous – an amazing memory of a wonderful day. Thank you!Linda Christmas
She puts you at your ease so you’ll get fantastic natural photos. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
Well worth the money.
Asya helped me to feel relaxed on the day and I can honestly say, after a makeover from one of Asya’s make up artist contacts pre shoot, I felt really happy with how I looked for the photos. When I saw the photos, they surpassed my expectations and I will definitely come back to Asya when I need more photos for business or pleasure.Melanie Eastwood
Asya Barskaya recently took new head shots for me. I am not someone who enjoys having their photo taken but Asya made it so easy, plenty of conversation to relax me and plenty of direction to get the shots. But that isn’t the best bit, the best bit is the photos she takes are amazing, professional shots but relaxed and not stuffy. I was expecting good photos but I have been woowed by the final results. I highly recommend Asya for any photosrahy you need, but particularly for business head shots, she is fab!!Andrea Frate
I was looking for a photographer and had the good fortune to sit next to Asya at the 10-12 Business Xmas lunch. When Asya said she was running a business portrait session on my birthday I knew I had found who I was looking for. Asya welcomed me into her home and make up artist Penny Campbell put me at ease – I wear minimal make up and was keen that I should come across real, approachable and natural. Working with Asya was fun. She knows exactly how to put you at your ease, talking and encouraging you as she snaps away. Choosing just one photo was SO hard as they were all so good. When I posted my chosen one on Facebook it received over 97 likes and counting – the last today “who took these amazing photos, your soul is shining through. ” Thank you so much Asya you are amazingCheryl Brickell
Asya is a calm, relaxed individual who’s warm personality invites you to relax whilst your photos are being taken. I asked Asya to take some business photos for my LinkedIn profile and the end results are fantastic. I had a hard time choosing two as I liked most of them. I would definitely use Asya again should another occasion arise where photos are required whether it is personal or professional.
Prompt service on receiving the proofs and the chosen photos and exceptional value for money
A pleasure to work with!Tracey Bass
It is so easy to write a recommendation for Asya: I just love her way of making people shine through her camera lenses. Asya is fantastic with kids, with dogs (mine was in love with her!) and with adults who do not enjoy photo sessions particularly. Her pictures are a reflection of her personality: sunny and lively, with a tender touch that allows her clients to remember these photo sessions with humour and pleasure. If you have not tried, you should go ahead and book a photo session at ABL Photography.Stephanie Timsit
Asya is a brilliant photographer! She has now taken several head shots for me as well as family pictures – which always capture the moment perfectly.Karen Livingstone
As someone who hates having their photograph taken, it was with some trepidation that I realised I had to get some professional shots done for my LinkedIn profile. But Asya was great, she somehow enabled me to connect with my inner self and as a result, the photographs were superb, and just what I was looking for.Andrew Banning
Asya did some profile portraits for me and I’m absolutely delighted with them.
She is a very professional photographer and also an exceeding nice person.
I highly recommend her….she is outstanding!
Asya combines technical skills with the ability to make you feel totally at ease during a portrait session. As a keen photographer myself, I picked up some useful tips from her and am delighted with the results.Stewart Stone
Asya – I am so delighted with my portrait photos! I have had so many wonderful comments since I changed my FB profile picture!! I will be recommending you!! xCarol Keller
Asya has been beautifully capturing my children on camera for the past 7 years. Patient, talented and very creative. I highly recommend ABL Photography. Thank you Asya!Lucy Mills
Asya is a very kind, talented and lady both inside and out. Despite being a photographer myself I did not realise how nervous I would get before having my own head shots taken. Asya was an expert and putting me at ease. From the moment I arrived she offered me a drink and made me feel very comfortable in her studio.
She chatted at ease and complimented me giving me confidence. Nothing was too much trouble for Asya as she altered the temperature of the room to suit me and got the best out of me for the photos themselves. Asya created many lighting set ups and moods changing the backgrounds and the posing set ups which she confidently explained to me (how to sit, stand etc). I mentioned it had been my 40th birthday a few days before and Asya turned the shoot into a celebration too of this milestone in my life. I loved the shoot and I look forward to having another shoot very soon with Asya - this time I will be bringing my family. The results where amazing. Asya is very talented as I LOVE my images. I received the most likes and comments ever on face book and felt very confident and happy as result of the shoot and the images.
I highly recommend Asya.Tina Cleary Henness
Wow ! Truly an amazing lady who captures you in just the right way. Stunning pictures and Amazing Memories to treasure forever. Thank you so much xCatherine Rogers
Asya, thank you so very much for giving your time and exceptional talent to our event! It cannot be easy to take photos during a live concert but you certainly did!! You discreetly succeeded to take the most stunning photos that captured perfectly the spirit, energy and beauty of our young performers. Thank you so very much and we hope that you will be able to make it next year! Thank you again, Janette Mooney Nyangiti and Eithne Rosenmeier, Co-Organisers of the Henley Youth Festival Proms at the Kenton Theatre, Henley on ThamesJanette Mooney Nyangiti
Stunning pictures, a lovely woman!Victoria Grace Ruskin
I have always hated having my photograph taken and have always struggled to find suitable images for my website and various social media profiles. Asya immediately made me feel at ease and I was completely relaxed for the duration of the session. The results speak for themeslves – thank you Asya, I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.Ann Warne
Asya made having my picture taken for my LinkedIn profile not only painless but even enjoyable, which is amazing as I hate having my picture taken. I knew I needed a professional picture for my LinkedIn profile as this is the first impression people get of me and my business and I am so pleased with the images Asya has done for me. So if you want a great profile picture I would definitely recommend using Asya.Penny Campbell
I’m not a big fan of having my photo taken, however, Asya’s relaxed and friendly manner put me at ease and I really enjoyed the photo shoot. She was quick to send me the proofs, which posed a difficult problem – I have never received a set of photos where I liked them all and it took ages to choose! I’m really pleased with my professional pictures and would highly recommend one of Asya’s Business Portrait Studio days.Holly Thorne
Asya is such a delightful person to work with! She clearly loves what she does and has the ability to put you at ease in front of the camera, making the whole experience fun and enjoyable. I usually hate having my photo taken and the results invariably reflect this, but I really had difficulty choosing one head-shot from all the pictures Asya took as so many of them turned out even better than I had hoped. I ended up choosing four!Marion Connah
I highly recommend Asya as a photographer. She recently attended our Against Breast Cancer Achievement Awards launch and took some great photos that we can use for promotional materials, press and social media. She took on the brief and excelled. Thank you Asya.Kelly Gibson
I recently had a photo session with Asya in her fab little studio in Twyford. I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome. Asya is a very experienced photographer and has a great passion for her work. Due to her warm personality and her accommodating style, Asya puts her clients at ease straight away, and can offer extras like recommendations for a professional makeup artist etc if required. However her technical skills as a photographer are such that you may not need the extra camouflage! I would highly, highly recommend Asya’s photography service, she really is brilliant at her craft.Olivia Woods
Asya did a great job with our company photos, I highly recommend her work! Very professional yet so friendly.Sophie Perret
Asya is a very talented photographer, not only did she take a lovely portrait of me for my social media pages, but she also managed to take a good head shot for my passport! Asya was excellent, she made me feel really comfortable and relaxed in her lovely studio. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone requiring a portrait or family images.Alix Horne
Asya is extremely professional and has a great manner. She put the team at ease straight away which meant she got great photos of a lot of people in a very short space of time. The end result is a super set of profile shots that people are very happy to use in the press and on linkedin profiles.Emma Lattimer
I have been an admirer of Aysa’s photographic talent for many years but only sat for her last week! She was our company’s first choice for professional portraits and she instantly recognised the perfect way to portray our personalities and we were able to put our faith in her straightaway! I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone wishing to find the best side they never knew they had.Helen Ferguson
Asya photographed a lunch club I held recently. She really captured the ambience of the event and the photographs taken showed off the best qualities of the subjects. People have commented on the photos, uploaded onto my Facebook page, like ‘should be in a magazine’. Asya is a people photographer and can make anyone look great in a photo. Let’s get my linked in one sorted Asya.Karanjit (Kran) Sondh
I recently had my business head-shot taken by Asya and the results were excellent. I liked the way Asya encouraged my to try different backgrounds which I would not have considered. The hints and tips she gives to help you relax and smile are very good and work well. Overall it was a very enjoyable session and I would happily recommend Asya to anyone updating their head-shot or looking for new pictures for their website.Karen Livingstone
I can thoroughly recommend ABL photography for professional business headshots. Asya’s photography services are excellent and the quality of the photographs is superb. Asya made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable and fun and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any business needing high quality photographs for their website/business.
A pleasure to work with!Julie Deadman
I have three daughters who are all growing up very fast. As parents, we are often so busy we don’t actually stop to look at how wonderful our children are and to record the moment at a point in time.
With this in mind, we booked Asya for a family portrait session. She made us all feel very welcome and relaxed when we arrived at her home-based studio.
My husband and I were struck by her liveliness, enthusiasm and energy throughout the ninety minute photo session. She communicated perfectly with the kids, and the photographs she produced were spot on!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Asya for family portrait photography. I have also seen several of her professional headshots for people’s business and personal online profiles which are also striking.Lindsay Mcloughlin
My first photoshoot with the 3 children and Asya made us all feel extremely relaxed. The whole experience was very enjoyable and resulted in a great selection of brilliant pictures. I was spoiled for choice.
I had a fantastic shoot with ABL. I was so disappointed with school photos but didn’t want to go with a national chain like Venture. My children are not crazy about having their pictures taken and I was worried that they would be unco-operative, but Asya made them laugh so much and an hour flew by, to my amazement! The pictures are of the highest quality and really capture them having fun and looking at their best. Highly recommended.Charlie
Asya has taken beautiful photographs for us as a family on several occasions, always putting us at our ease during photoshoots and creating fabulous framed prints which we treasure. We recently used ABL Photography for my daughter’s 10th birthday party, with a fun photoshoot and some super pictures of the girls in party mode! We were delighted with the results and would certainly recommend Asya to anyone looking for professional yet fun photographs at a reasonable price!Jane Errington
