Let's make some memories ...

At the heart of family portrait photography lies the ability to freeze fleeting moments in time, encapsulating the dynamics and personalities within a family unit. Each photograph tells a unique story, reflecting the relationships, emotions, and milestones shared among family members.

Adept in family portraiture, I possess not only technical skills but also a keen understanding of human relationships. I skillfully orchestrate poses, lighting, and composition to create images that are not only visually striking but also deeply meaningful. From newborns nestled in the arms of adoring parents to multi-generational gatherings brimming with laughter and joy, family portraits capture the evolution of a family over time.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can we incorporate our own props in the family or couple's shoot?

Absolutely! Props can bring a unique and personal touch to your session. Whether it's a cherished family heirloom, a beloved toy, or a symbol of your relationship, we welcome its inclusion.

How many clothing changes are allowed during our photography session?

You're free to change outfits as often as you'd like within your booked time slot. For a shorter session, we'd advise minimal changes to maximise shooting time. For instance, a 30-minute slot might allow for just one or two simple adjustments, like changing a scarf or hat.

Where can our family/couple's photo session be conducted?

The choice is entirely yours! We can set up in our dedicated studio, opt for an outdoor location, or even come to your home. Our objective is to ensure the setting aligns with the vibe you're aiming for.

Will we receive guidance on how to pose, especially with kids involved?

Of course! Our photographers are skilled in making everyone feel comfortable and will offer pose suggestions to ensure each shot reflects the genuine essence of your family or relationship.

How long after the session will we receive our edited pictures?

Once you've selected your preferred shots, expect your polished images to be with you in just three business days.

In what formats will we receive our final photographs?

Your captured moments will usually be delivered in high-quality JPEG format. However, if you require TIFF or PNG versions, please let us know.

Do you offer any services related to makeup and hairstyling for our shoot?

While our core expertise lies in capturing stunning images, we can definitely arrange professional makeup and hairstyling services as an added option. Just mention it when you book, and we'll ensure everything's set for your session.

"The photographer was professional but relaxed and made me feel very comfortable. I felt relaxed and happy and the final images reflect that.

I have had many photoshoots over the years and this was by far the best experience I have had. I now have excellent headshots and when I need more, I shall be returning.

There are many photographers in London and it can be difficult to find one you feel at ease with and comfortable to showcase the real you. I am so pleased I have finally found one.

Thank you."
