joyful and timeless
LONDON FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
I love showcasing the fleeting little moments, love and tender connections between you and your family. The photographs we create together will be all about capturing your family in a candid, natural way to create authentic and beautiful records of this time in your life. All you have to do is spend time together doing the things you enjoy most, and as your family photographer, I will be there to capture you as you are.
I offer in-home and outdoors lifestyle London family photography sessions. As a mother myself, I also have a soft spot for motherhood photography, knowing that often we are the one behind the camera and are therefore absent from family photographs. Whatever your choice of session may be, I love creating beautiful memories that you will treasure for years to come.
Below are a few selected favourites of my London family photography.
I would like your experience to be memorable and relaxed, and believe that you should simply enjoy spending time together as a family.
During our shoot, I will provide gentle guidance, use the most flattering angles and ensure we create authentic moments of your family life.
As a mother to two young children myself, I ensure your little ones feel comfortable and engaged to capture beautiful candid moments together.
BEFORE YOUR SESSION
If you have a specific date in mind, I recommend reaching out early as I only work with a handful of families per month.
To ensure a bespoke experience, I offer a complimentary pre-shoot consultation, so we can get to know each other, and for me to learn what is most important to you in documenting your family story through these images.
I love supporting you in your outfit and styling choices, including for your partner and your children. From the moment you reach out for your family portrait session, I will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
YOUR FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT
On the day, I will arrive a few minutes early so we can chat through any other questions you may have and importantly, for me to meet and chat with your children.
I don’t set any time limits on our shoots together, but typically spend around 90 minutes for a family photography session.
I will always be flexible, for example if your littles need a snack break or change of location.
Throughout our shoot, I will ensure you and your family feels relaxed and well taken care of.
AFTER YOUR SESSION
I know what the excitement feels like to see your photos, so after your family photography session, I will send you a few sneak previews within 48 hours.
I take pride in hand editing each of your images and will share your online gallery with you three to four weeks after our shoot. You will be able to choose between different packages to decide if you would like to keep the entire gallery (35+ images) or a smaller number of images.
I strongly believe images should be printed and would be delighted to support you with fine art prints or bespoke fine art albums to create beautiful family heirlooms.

“Lisa was so lovely to work with. From our first interaction via my inquiry to receiving our beautiful photos, she was professional, easy to speak with and thoughtful. She put our family at ease during our photo shoot, and the pictures she captured are timeless, fun and such a beautiful representation of our first family trip to London. She felt like an old friend by the end of the shoot! Thank you, Lisa!”
– Lauren, mother to Eleanor & Marguerite
How shall we pose?
For my London family photography, there are no specific rules here. I will ensure to capture you at your best and that’s when you feel most comfortable: interacting with each other, sharing a little kiss, laughing and playing with your kids. Every now and then, I will offer gentle suggestions such as turning more towards the light or engaging differently with each other. There is no pressure and if something isn’t working for you or your little ones, we will simply try something else.
Where do london family photography sessions take place?
I want you to relax and enjoy our session together – whether that’s in the comfort of your home which will hold many special memories for you, or at another London location that is meaningful to you as a family. Time permitting, we can start in your home and move to your garden / a close by park after. For outdoors sessions, I love Kensington Gardens or Chiswick House if you are located in West London. I’m always happy to make suggestions depending on your preferences and location, and be as flexible as possible.
WHAT IF MY CHILDREN DON'T WANT TO SIT STILL?
I don’t expect them to, quite the contrary. My style is taking natural, unposed images. Our sessions together will always be easy-going, joyful and tailored to your family. I am a mother to a toddler and a baby myself, so appreciate things can be a little unpredictable! I will spend time getting to know your children and have a few simple tricks to keep them engaged throughout our session together.
What should I/we wear?
It’ s most important to feel yourself. I am always happy to share ideas and we can discuss this before our family photography session during the complimentary styling consultation. I generally recommend neutral tones (white, beige, greys, pastels etc.) and ideally no bold patterns. Think complimentary colours instead of matching each other. Have a look this blog post detailing what to wear for your family photoshoot.
