Family Photographer Kensington & Chelsea

A full-time family photographer, I’ve been photographing children in Kensington & Chelsea for ten years now. Having spent so much time in the area as a child myself, it’s a total delight to photograph the new generation here.

We’ll usually start off at home, and then head out for some outdoor shots. We can either take photographs in your garden, or in one of the beautiful parks close by. From Chelsea, we can also take photographs by the picturesque riverside.

Scroll down to see a selection of photographs taken in nearby parks. Kensington Gardens is a magical spot for family photography. The open grass areas are fun for children to run around in, and the shaded areas are great for family group shots. The more formally planted flowers also make for a great distraction, and a splash of colour. Nearby Holland Park and Hyde Park also make great options if you’d like to go for a stroll.

“The photographs were stunning and absolutely perfect, showing the children relaxed and looking totally comfortable in front of the camera. Simply by far the best professional photos we have ever had done.” Graham

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!
