Family photographer in Greenwich and North Greenwich

“Louise is a great photographer who puts children at ease and captures lovely natural images. We treasure the photos she took of our baby.” Alex

Family portrait sessions usually start at home, where little ones feel most comfortable and relaxed. After an hour or so, we’ll head out to spend some time in your favourite park. Having this variety of indoor and outdoor photos makes for a lovely collection of images.

Family photo sessions are always child led, we’ll move from room to room at their own pace. There’s plenty of time for breaks, snacks and cuddles.

Greenwich park is one of my favourite parks to photograph families in. The wide open spaces work brilliantly for photographs, and the more formally planted areas make a great contrast. Having the variety of long meadowy grass as well as open plains offers great scope. The brightly coloured flowers and the bandstand also offer great photo opportunities.

The riverside stretches between Greenwich and North Greenwich are also very picturesque. The historic buildings offer an interesting backdrop, and the open views across the river also work well.

We can also go to your local park. Playgrounds and swings make a great photo opportunity, the bright colours of the paintwork really add a pop of colour to toddler portraits.

If you’re not sure which would suit you best, we can discuss what you’d like from the photographs and I can advise which park would suit best.

Photographing families in Greenwich is such a delight for me, I love returning to a favourite stomping ground! I used to manage the Viewfinder Photography Gallery in Greenwich, and lived in North Greenwich. It was wonderful living over the river, and walking alongside it to get to work. Not to mention having Greenwich park on the doorstep! I really enjoy photographing the new generation growing up here.

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!
