Family Photographer East London

Having been a full-time family photographer for over ten years now, I’ve photographed hundreds of families in East London.

Family photo shoots tend to start off at home, and we’ll head outdoors to your favourite park too. Victoria Park, Hackney Marshes and Millwall Gardens (and a quick visit to Island Gardens for some boat spotting!) work well for family portraits. Mudchute City Farm is also a fun option – or we can simply go to your local park.

“My NCT friends had a photoshoot with Louise and after seeing one photo she took I immediately knew that this is what I was looking for. Clean, natural, beautiful photography – not over styled, just very tasteful. I could tell after checking her website that she has got a great artistic eye and can capture that ‘special moment’.

Louise is such a pleasure to work with and she is a fantastic photographer! She managed to capture all the special expressions of my little one which I will treasure forever. She has such a lovely and gentle approach and my baby felt so relaxed with her. Louise is also very organised and thinks of every detail. She was also great on advising what to wear which was very useful.

I love photography and seeing how quickly my daughter is growing I really wanted to have her childhood captured professionally. The quality of Louise’s photos is outstanding – with beautiful natural light, so much depth and expression in it. Simply stunning! I absolutely love all of them.” Eva

Natural, meaningful family photography

Family photography sessions are always fun and relaxed. You need this to be easy to arrange, and enjoyable – and it will be! 

You've worked hard to create your family, and capturing this stage of childhood is precious. I photograph children just as they are – natural, spontaneous and totally in the moment.

Family life isn't perfect or polished, so there's no need to worry about how your kids will behave! It's all about the cuddles, the giggles and the little moments that really sum up your children. 

Photographing your children play and interact with each other – and with you – makes for really meaningful images.

Over the course of your session, I’ll find the right moments to take individual portraits of each child, photographs of siblings together as well as photographs of each of you playing with and cuddling your children.

The love and bond between you all is so important, so of course I'll also take some relaxed family shots too.

I always look to take photographs that will not only move you now, but will also bring back memories in years to come.

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.

I have a simple pricing structure, with no hidden surprises.

Helping children relax 

As a mum myself, I really understand how to get the most out of children, how to work with their mood and bring out their unique personality. My ten years' experience as a full-time family photographer helps too! 

Your portrait session is always child led – there’s plenty of time, and no rush.

It’s all about making children (and grown-ups!) feel comfortable and not at all self-conscious.

We’ll allow plenty of time for snack stops, toilet stops, and any little issues that might crop up.

I’m highly experienced with children of all ages so can keep even the crankiest toddler on side – I promise!

Your child's the boss – whatever toy or game they're in the mood for that day, we'll run with that. Rest assured though that I’ll gently guide you into pretty light and spaces that will work well for portraits.

You can find out what to expect here, and we can discuss what you're looking for to see if I'll be a good fit for your family. Just get in touch

Quality prints, frames & albums

I work with specialist framers and album suppliers to create truly stunning products for you to treasure, and to pass on to the next generations. It's a great opportunity to create some family heirlooms that your children can share with their own children in years to come. 

Fine art prints really bring your photographs to life, so I include at least one print with every booking. It's so important to have your photographs out where you can see and enjoy them! 

Frames mean you get to enjoy your photographs every day. I can provide design support (free of charge) in selecting the frames that will suit your home best

Albums create a beautiful time capsule of this stage in your family's life. Looking through them together as your children grow up is a magical experience – we never tire of it!
