I’m a professional photographer specialised in natural yet striking baby, child and family portraits.
We really love Louise’s photos and Louise. The whole photo session felt really relaxed and the photos are stunning and natural. This is the second time we’ve had Louise take photos for us and it won’t be the last time. I highly recommend Louise.”

I’m based in Balham, in southwest London (SW12), where I live with my husband and three year old daughter.
Before becoming a photographer myself in 2011, I was the photography curator and manager at the Viewfinder Photography Gallery for two years, and then their Chairperson for three years; I was on the management committee of London Independent Photography, and the graphic designer for their magazine. I have an MA in Photography.
I feel very lucky to be doing what I love for a living! I really enjoy photographing children. I love capturing their individuality, and creating gorgeous photographs of moments that can never be recreated. I love getting to know a family and seeing what makes them tick, which helps me to really make each family session unique to them. I love hearing from parents that the photographs have really caught their children’s character, and that they’ve decorated their home with shots from their portrait session.
Press and exhibitions:
I was featured in Vogue’s collection of ‘the most talented and desirable child photographers in the UK':
“Adorable and dynamic shots.” Vogue
I was selected as the child photographer for the Tatler Parents’ Guide:
“One of London’s favourite family photographers … This is beautiful child photography – gorgeous portraits taken in your own home and outdoors.” Tatler
“A leading child photographer.” NCT Hour Time
I was Editor’s Pick on Clapham Mums.
My child portraits have been exhibited at the Keag River Gallery in the USA and in Papergirl in Belfast.
Thank you so much for these beautiful photographs- we are so pleased with the results! We love how everyone looks so natural and at ease- credit to your ability to make us all relax.
Thanks again and we will be telling our friends about you!”

We are delighted with the photos that Louise took of our family including our newborn, toddler and five year old. She had an instant rapport with our children and they had fun suggesting which poses they thought looked best! She was happy to accommodate their directions but thankfully had plenty of ideas on how to get the best photos. She worked hard with our 5 year old to ensure a more natural smile rather than his usual cheesy grin! She was also extremely flexible when taking photos of our newborn baby. We would highly recommend her!”
