Baby, children and family portrait photography, London
I provide the very best in children’s portraiture and family photography. I pride myself in capturing beautiful portraits of your children and family that you (and one day your children) will fall in love with and treasure for a lifetime. I take a huge amount of care in providing you with the very best artistic and emotive images because they are of the most precious people in your life.
Outdoor family photography
I live in Kensington, West London and travel to my clients and outdoor locations throughout SW London and North London. Holland Park and Chiswick House are on my doorstep; Richmond Park is one of my favourite spots and perfect even in the winter with all the long golden grass and bracken! On a frosty morning it is just magical. Kew Gardens is wonderful of course and perfect for those cloudy or rainy days because the hot house is full of beautiful, luminous light - and cosy in winter! Many of my North London family photoshoots are on Hampstead Heath around Kenwood House, which has blooming rhododendrons and meadows full of wildflowers depending on the time of year.
I am always discovering new and beautiful locations and keep my eye out for wildflowers and trees blossoming so have plenty of ideas for your session regardless of where you are in London. Of course I welcome your suggestions too!
What time of day?
My sessions take place around as early or as late in the day as possible (nap times permitting!) because that's when the light is soft and pretty and golden. I keep a close eye on the weather as our family photoshoot approaches and will suggest a back up date in case of bad weather.
The session fee is £225 for up to an hour of photography and is paid for at the time of booking. The session fee pays for the time photographing you and your family (and my travel and preparation time). It does not include the edited digital images (which range from £350 to £625 depending on the number of images), or my beautiful fine-art prints or albums which can both be purchased after your session if you wish to do so.
What is your style?
I am passionate about finding gorgeous, enchanting, soft light for my family photo shoots, whether on a dusky summer evening, or early on a frosty winter morning. I nearly always photograph outdoors and my portraits are as sun-filled and as magical as I can make them.
I have a very relaxed style of family photography and encourage children to run around and explore so that I can capture beautiful natural, un-posed images; however, for nervous parents I am happy to give as much gentle direction as needed! Often I find the most natural and sweetest moments are those between parent and child and I love nothing more than photographing that bond.
What happens next?
A selection of at least 70 high-resolution images from the shoot will be hand-edited, retouched and placed on a private online gallery for you to view and choose your favourite portraits to purchase. My collections start at £350 for a set of 10 high resolution digital images.
Your portraits will be available on the gallery approximately one week after your session and will remain on the gallery for a further one week after publishing. Should you decide to purchase a collection of images, these are provided by digital download directly to your computer straight from your gallery. The photographs are yours to print, share and duplicate as you wish.
I am passionate about creating beautiful wall art for your home; I believe that photographs of your loved ones should not live as jpegs on your computer, only to eventually get lost on an old hard drive somewhere! I offer beautiful luxury prints on museum quality fine art papers which start at £45 and will last a lifetime. You can see more details about printing your photographs here.
