London children’s, baby and family portrait photographer
Hi, I’m Thea; a London children’s, baby and family portrait photographer offering timeless, creative portrait photography in both black & white and colour. I love to create photographs that celebrate the wonder and beauty of your everyday; extraordinary moments that might otherwise have been forgotten. Each portrait session is uniquely tailored to each individual family in order to create natural, authentic photographs that speak to the heart. I specialise in children’s photography, baby photography, pregnancy photography, Christening photography as well as wedding photography in London and the South East. Prices start at £180 for a standard session fee, which are also available as gift vouchers.
“It can be a profound action, taking a photograph. It’s a piece of realisation. The preservation of a fleeting expression. A recording, even, of the precise moment the world changed.” Leica
A camera is never far from my side and I love to photograph beauty and emotion in everyday life creatively, using natural light. Photographing families has become my specialism because it’s what I love doing. Children should be photographed creating, moving, doing and making…photographing real life lends vitality and authenticity to a photograph. I love the way children respond to the camera and how they get involved with the whole creative process of making photographs. I love knowing I am there to record fleeting moments in their childhood in order to preserve them for future generations to enjoy. It’s my collaboration with my clients that is vital to the process, in order that we end up with a selection of images that are both beautiful and original.
I’m based in London, and cover all other areas in London as a baby, children’s and family portrait photographer. I also travel to many other parts of the South East including St Alban’s, Sussex, Middlesex, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, Essex, Buckinghamshire, and the Home Counties ~ Kent and Surrey.
I use an unobtrusive approach to photography and I love using natural light. Your family portrait session can take place both at your home and in a favourite location of your choice. I like to involve children in their portrait session; being a qualified art teacher and mum means that I am able to quickly gauge when children are happy and at ease, and I know how to encourage them so they feel comfortable in front of my camera. I often encourage children I’m photographing to engage in an activity or game that they enjoy so that they feel happy and relaxed. With newborn baby photography I like to photograph babies in a very natural way. I take on a select amount of work in order to give each client my very best. I also occasionally photograph weddings, in both the UK and worldwide.
