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!

London and Surrey Family Photographer / Richmond Park Family Photoshoot

I really enjoy catching up with return clients and finding out what they’ve been up to. It was lovely to hear from Berry, who’s Cockapoo Joey I photographed a few years ago. He was a young dog then, and was very energetic so taking portraits was a big challenge! Below is a photo from that photo session; a moment of stillness before more energetic running around!

Since our last meeting, there has been a new addition to the family, and there was a big family get together to celebrate the occasion! As London and Surrey family photographer, I work at different locations across the capital and Surrey, but it was a special treat to go back to Richmond park for this photoshoot. The biggest challange this time was to get everyone comfortable and happy in front of the camera; to arrange a large group of people and take a shot while everyone was looking! I found an old tree branch which looked like the perfect spot for a big family photo. The curves of the branch provided lovely lines for an interesting compositing, and contained enough perching spots for everyone to sit (not so comfortably!), or stand around. After a few attempts, the children and Joy looked directly at me, and by some miracle I was able to capture the big group shot! The rest of the shoot was done in the lovely tall grasses in the park, and around beautiful Isabella plantation. Here are a few photos from the shoot - images will automatically change, but do use the previous and next controls if you need to.
