Hi, I’m Emily and I love to capture the important times in people’s lives. Whether it’s a first birthday party or a naming ceremony, newborn portrait or family photo; I specialise in taking beautiful, authentic photos of people that show them just how wonderful they are, as they are.
I live in Highams Park with my husband and two small children. Just like you, I'm knee deep in the beautiful mess that is parenthood. That’s why I’m passionate about helping people document this special time in their lives.
I haven’t always been a photographer. I worked for nine years in video production and after that I retrained as a children’s nurse. I now get to do both which makes me feel very lucky and I’m truly privileged to be able to work with some fantastic families in both my jobs.
Being a mother and a paediatric nurse has given me a real understanding of how children think, and I believe that shows in my work. I am passionate about authentic, meaningful, newborn and child photography which is why my shoots are always family led, fun and relaxed.

Why choose me to take your photos?
I apply the same principles to every one of my child or family photography sessions. My goal is to provide you with images that are beautiful, authentic and natural.
I use natural light and a combination of gentle directing and opportunistic shots to deliver artistic, flattering photos that will make you want to smile whenever you look at them.
I want my photos to really capture this time in your life as it is. I truly believe that children and newborns are beautiful just the way they are and that props and intense posing aren’t necessary when taking beautiful pictures of families.
My background in children’s nursing and my experience as a mother means that if there is one thing I understand it’s children. I have no expectations of how they should behave in a session. It’s perfectly natural for a newborn to want to stay in your arms the entire time and completely normal for an older child to become shy or act up when a stranger comes to visit. I am experienced at working with both.
Emily isn't just a really good photographer she is also a pleasure to work with and has a rare and special talent for capturing the magic of the moment.
Not only is Emily super professional and great at what she does, she is wonderfully gentle and calm with your precious bundle.
