Because family is everything.
Because family is everything.

New arrivals, wobbly first steps, holding hot little hands – family life is full of moments that you’d love to capture but that go by so fast.
It’s so important to capture these wonderful, crazy years with really special photographs that will bring back precious memories for years to come.
Having watched my own little girl grow up in the blink of an eye, I’ve experienced first-hand how important photographs of each fleeting stage is. I understand how much you’ll treasure photographs of your children once they’ve grown up.
Sessions are always fun and easy-going. I take care to create a relaxed atmosphere where you can be yourselves – that’s when the magic happens.
I’m all about making this easy for you. Family life is busy, and I totally get that you need this to be an enjoyable and straightforward process!
I’ll guide you through each step of the process, and make sure you have everything you need – both before your session (with a prep guide, and a pre-session phone call) and after your session (with a next steps guide, and design support with any products you choose to order).
I’m a mum myself so I totally get how unpredictable children can be – some days they’re full of beans, some days they’re quiet and cuddly, some days they won’t take their fingers out of their nose! My ten years of experience means I can get the best out of any child. No matter what mood your child’s in on the day, I promise I’ll take gorgeous photographs that you’ll love.
“Louise took really beautiful photographs of our children and family. The session was enjoyable and relaxed and we are so happy with the result.” Emma
With family sessions, we’ll usually start off in your home (I cover all of London), and then head out to your favourite park for some outdoor photographs.
Newborn sessions take place at home; and with 3-4 hour sessions we can also head out to the park for some outdoor photographs.
Headshots can be taken in your home or office – or outdoors, depending on the kind of look you’re after.
With christenings, you can add extra time to cover getting ready photographs at home, and photography of the reception.
Please know that all families are 100% welcome – single parent families, same sex parents, all religions and backgrounds. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and I’m honoured to photograph each and every one.
Pets are absolutely welcome too, I fully get that they’re part of the family too!
Well, the simple answer is: now! I promise you you’ll never regret having your family photographs now. If you wait for that illusive perfect moment, though, you may find a year or two has rushed past and you’ve missed some really sweet moments.
That said, with babies there are some ages that work particularly well. See my recommendations on those here.
As for the time of year, I work year round so you can choose your favourite season. You can see photographs from each season here. Bear in mind that Summer and Autumn are my busiest months, and weekends can book up several months ahead – so do get in touch soon if you’d like to bag a weekend spot!
All your photographs will be lovingly edited, and available in both colour and in black and white.
About a week after our photography session, your photographs will be ready to view on a password-protected online gallery.
My design degree and previous role managing a photography gallery means I can give you expert support on how best to present your photographs.
There’s absolutely no pressure to order anything and no minimum spend – if you’d like to though, we can work together to create some family heirlooms.
“Our framed prints are stunning and we are absolutely delighted with them!” Heidi
