My Approach

— Lorem ipsum dolor sit —

As a professional London family portrait photographer, I understand that in order to capture photography images that you will look back on and really treasure forever, your London family photo shoot needs to be relaxed, stress-free and centred on real emotions and family connections. Cheesy, forced smiles are simply not my cup of tea, and having worked with young children for many years before making the switch to family photography, I understand it is best to just let children be themselves. That’s why I love creating family portraits outside on location or in your home, where you and your family are free to run around and play games instead of being forced to sit unnaturally still under intimidating studio lights. For everyone; from adored grandparents to your precious newborn baby, photography shoots outdoors can create a much calmer experience.

Choosing me as your London family photographer means that we can capture your timeless family portrait in a choice of stunning locations. You might choose the woods where you walk the dog (pets are always welcome to join our photography shoot by the way), a favourite London park, or your own home and garden. Family portraits always mean so much more when the photography shoot takes place in a location that has a meaning or connection to your family and London has no shortage of memory-making backdrops and iconic locations for you and your photographer to choose from.

London Family photography without the stress

What’s my favourite part of of being a portrait photographer? Getting to provide beautiful & natural family photography across London by creating an unrivalled family portrait experience. As your London family photographer it’s my job to put you at ease, erase any tension and deliver photography that you can enjoy for the rest of your life; long after the frog wellies are outgrown and the comfort blanket becomes old and threadbare. Living in a fast-paced city like London, we often don’t take time to pause and appreciate those little moments that define family life. Each family photo I take provides an opportunity to preserve some of those precious fleeting moments forever.

Currently selecting your perfect London family photographer? It’s important to ensure that not only are their photographs in the style and of the quality that you love, but that your chosen portrait photographer has invested time developing their photography craft and will spend time developing their understanding of you. I studied portrait photography at Morley College in London, and now combine my technical knowledge with my training in childcare and education to ensure that I’m not just another family photographer in London that prioritises kit over comfort.

Just as every London family is unique, so too is my approach to your family portrait shoot. A pre-shoot questionnaire allows me find out a little more about your family and the images you want captured. Family photography is about telling stories and celebrating characters, and whilst other family photographers take a one-size-fits-all approach to shooting your family portrait, I adapt each London family photoshoot to every family I shoot.

Want lots of photographs of your family all smiling in the direction of the camera in pristine outfits? Fab! That’s something we can do. Want your London photographer to take totally candid pictures featuring muddy boots, chocolate-covered grins and tickles-induced giggles? Awesome! That can easily be done too. It’s so important that you look back on family photography photoshoots as a wonderful time and that the process of creating high quality family portraits is as fun-filled as the resulting images.

For me, being a family photographer in London is about working together with you to ensure that my photography is loved by everyone who laughs, smiles, grins and giggles in front of my camera. Photography should be based on a collaboration between the photographer and the families involved in the portrait session, so be honest about any lumps, bumps or perceived flaws you feel anxious about having photographed. I love how diverse and multicultural London is, and being a family photographer based in London allows me to use my photography to celebrate families of all backgrounds, shapes and sizes.

When family photography is done wrong, you leave feeling stressed and disappointed. When family photography is done right, you will leave your shoot feeling great about yourselves before you even see the photos. By choosing me as your family photographer, your happiness, individuality and comfort are valued just as much as the photography itself. With me as your photographer, family life will be captured naturally and authentically, without the need to aspire to someone’s else’s idea of what the perfect London family looks like.

During our London family photo shoot, we allow plenty of time on the day for you to all get used to having your photograph taken and for any little tears to be wiped away and any little tantrums to be resolved (hey we all have them and that’s totally OK). Being a full-time family photographer means I know that no London family is the same as the next and I pride myself on being able to create beautiful photographs of your family that you can’t wait to share with friends and relatives; regardless of whether your kids are as quiet as a door mouse or have more energy than a Duracell Bunny!

I’m not one of those family photographers who will make you do all manner of weird and wonderful posing that feels unnatural and inauthentic. Each portrait I take of your family will be centred upon capturing true personalities and expressions. Throughout your London family photoshoot, I will check in with you to make sure that every member of the family is feeling relaxed and enjoying their time on the shoot. I will take various combinations of photographs, so that you have a huge choice of stunning images and amazing memories; including shots that capture you as a family unit and individual portraits that celebrate every member of your beloved family.

I firmly believe that beautiful family photography should be an experience that every London family enjoys. Should you have children who have additional needs and / or may need a little more reassurance and a sensitive approach to your family photoshoot, please be assured that I am a photographer who is always happy to work around complex child and family requirements. With more than 10 years’ experience of working with children with special educational / additional needs, I can shoot your family in a non-intrusive way that will help to keep anxiety at bay throughout the family photoshoot.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do we choose the best location?

I am more than happy to take photos in a location of your choice. However, if it is not somewhere I have photographed before I will need to check that it is suitable for a shoot. Ideally our location will have a little shade if it’s really sunny and a bit of shelter if there are rain showers. It’s also important to check we have permission to shoot there and that that there are not going to be lots of distraction of health and safety issues.

What happens if it rains?

A few light showers won’t stop us having fun and can create awesome images. Heavy downpours are more problematic and so I will always offer to reschedule at no extra date.  Wearing layers is a good tip so that we are prepared for the predictably unpredictable British weather!

What if my children get upset or play up?

That’s totally OK! My family shoots allow plenty of time for children to relax and get used to my presence. Being outdoors mean that toys, props and games can be incorporated into the shoot to keep everyone happy, engaged and to get some really natural images.

Can we bring grandparents?

Of course! The more the merrier. All I ask if for you to let me know the names and ages of the family members in advance. That way I know how to plan some of the group images in advance, and can be made aware if an children or adults have mobility issues that I will need to factor in.
