Pricing: family photography


“Just put your confidence in Louise and all will be good. Louise is an excellent photographer and also very relaxed to spend time with. The combination of these qualities is wonderful. Louise was particularly good at locating some rather magical backdrops/locations for the shoot, and she has a wonderful eye for capturing unusual and unexpected moments. Her photos are some of our most valued possessions as a family.” Jeremy

I have a simple pricing structure and no hidden surprises.

If you’ve ever purchased artwork before, you’ll know that prices vary wildly. Photography is pretty similar, you’ll likely see a whole range of fees.

I’m not the most expensive photographer out there, but I’m also not a cheap option – I am certain though that I offer excellent value.

I offer only the highest quality products, my photography is award-winning and so is my customer service.

Some families spend £2,500 or so per session – what you choose to spend really depends on what you’d like to create with your photos.

“As always, we are thrilled with the results of Louise’s photographs. Louise always delivers. Even in the most trying of circumstances, she remains calm and unruffled. I wouldn’t use anyone else for family photographs. She dealt admirably with my not terribly cooperative three and a half year old, displaying seemingly infinite patience. A fabulous family photographer – highly recommended.” Helen
