Surrey Family Photographer | Chiswick Christening

I love photographing events, whether it is weddings, birthdays, family gatherings or christenings. I strive to capture the emotion of the day in a set of beautiful, timeless and candid photographs which you and your family can look back on in years to come.

I photographed little B’s christening service a couple of months ago at St Michael and All Angels church in Chiswick. It was a beautiful service, with family and friends singing together with the minister, and children gathering around little B’s pushchair. It felt very personal, and very intimate. Following the service, family and friends gathered for some drinks, food and cake.

I worked using documentary-style photography to capture the afternoon unfold, and combined wide angle shots to give the service a sense of scale and place, together with tighter framing to show detail and emotion. As Surrey christening photographer, I work across Surrey, West Sussex and London to photograph baptism or christening services.

If you are planning your child’s christening or baptism, and you are considering hiring a professional photographer, please get in touch to discuss your ideas and options. I would love to hear from you!

Surrey Family Photographer | Richmond Park Family Photohoot

The best thing about my job (except documenting amazing moments in my clients’ lives!) is getting to know my clients over the years, as we meet to take photos at different stages of their lives. I love seeing my clients as single couples, parents of babies and young children, and parents raising their growing family.

I photographed Bhavisha and Ajay back in 2015 when Bhavisha was pregnant with Jasmine, then Jasmine when she was a newborn baby and this time it was family fun in Richmond park, together will little baby Sia! We chose Richmond park as it brings back fond memories for the family, and it has an amazing playground down by Petersham gate. It was great fun trying to capture action shots of Jasmine as she played, as well some more quiet and intimate family moments.

As Surrey Family photographer, I work across Surrey and London photographing families enjoy themselves and having a good time. If you are looking to have family photos taken, please get in touch I would love to hear about you plans.

Surrey Portrait Photographer | Professional Headshots

The thing I really like about headshot photography is getting to know the individual in a shot space of time, and seeing how they relax in front of the camera as the session progresses. I met Philip last summer - he contacted me as he needed professional headshots for his Linkedin profile. We chatted about photography and work and life in the far East over a cup of tea, and discussed options for his headshots. We settled on two looks - a more formal one using studio background and lights, and a more relaxed look using natural lights and outside space as the backdrop. You can see a selection of images from that portrait session in the gallery below; my personal favourite - natural light and a relaxed candid expression! If you require professional headshots for your business website, social media profile, or even actor headshots, feel free to contact me to enquire and discuss options. I would love to hear from you!

Surrey Family Photographer at Denbies Wine Estate

I had a great pleasure of photographing this joint surprise 60th birhtday party at Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking. It was a wonderful occasion with family and friends arriving from near and far to join Alan and Lesley celebrate their birthday.

Alan and Lesley’s son and lovely daughter-in-law, who are the owners of the first vegan pizzeria in the UK, Purezza, have organised this amazing celebration for them. And what a surprise it was! They had no idea where they were going or who was waiting for them. Have a look at their expressions when they entered the room - pure surprise and joy! The guests were treated to Denbies’ wines and a tour of the winery. It was really interesting to find out the history of the estate and geat to have the opportunity to photograph the guests appreciate the big canisters where wine is kept, enjoy the wine testing session in the moody Denbies cellar and having a good time afterwards!

As a family and event photographer, it is such a privilage to do a great variety of jobs, from quiet small family shoots to birthday parties to big family gatherings like this one! Photographing joyous occasions is definitely one of the perks of my job. I really enjoyed capturing Lesley and Alan’s family and friends on this very special occasion, and I hope they’ll look back on the photos in years to come.

If you are organising a special event, or a large family gathering and thinking of hiring a photographer to capture your day, please drop me an email - I would love to hear from you!
