Hi, I’m Louise!

Ever since I got my first camera as a child, I’ve been photographing people. I’m a full-time family and headshot photographer living in Balham – in what I’m pleased to say is becoming a bit of a foodie-hub. I have an 12 year old daughter, and a cheeky Cockapoo.

My professional experience

My photography and customer service are award-winning, with 14 years experience as a full-time family portrait and business photographer.

My photographs have been published in over 20 publications (including The Observer, The Times, Vogue, Tatler, Baby London & Mothering.com), and exhibited internationally. 

I know photography inside out. I’m one of the only family photographers in London to have an MA in photography. Previously, I managed a photography gallery for four years.

Me as a person

I’m a mum – I understand first-hand the importance of having wonderful photographs to capture your little one’s childhood. As a small business owner, I totally get the importance of having distinctive business photographs – and a headshot that shows you at your best!

I live in a cosy house (that I’m constantly re-decorating!) with my drawing-obsessed 12 year old daughter and our cockapoo – who somehow puts up with us when we’re dancing in the kitchen.

My favourite things in the world are spending time with family and friends, travelling and eating out. Any spare time gets filled with squash, bouldering or a long dog walk.

I strongly believe in giving back. I volunteer as a Food Waste Hero for Olio, collecting surplus food from a supermarket each week and distributing it so nothing goes to landfill. 

I’m proud to have supported Street Child by donating my photography – such a great charity, creating educational opportunities for some of the world’s poorest children. I’ve also had the immense privilege of running photography workshops for patients at Trinity Hospice and for Homerton Hospital as well as Dulwich Picture Gallery’s programme for older people. Their art programmes are inspirational and really lifts the spirits of the participants. 

Press

My photographs have been exhibited internationally, and published in national newspapers and magazines including The Observer, Vogue, Tatler, Baby London and ITV News.

Recognised as an expert on family photography, I’ve written articles providing advice and guidance for family photographers in the Canon magazine, Practical Photography magazine, Creative Photographer, FStoppers, Digital Photography School, Mothering magazine – and many others.
