Fine Art Family and Wedding Photography

Locations


I travel in and out of London for my photo shoots, with locations varying from local parks and gardens to family homes. If you would like me to travel to you then please contact me to discuss. Do have a look at selected locations below.

AT YOUR HOME

Sometimes the ideal place for newborn and maternity photo shoots can be your very own home. With natural light and comfortable surroundings, I will travel to you for your very own photo shoot.

AT MY STUDIO

Choose between my studio near Greenwich, or head west to studios in West Kensington. Contact me with your preferred location and date and I’ll arrange the rest for you. Setting up a mobile studio at your location is possible with advanced notice.

ON LOCATION

I love the beautiful landscapes and natural light of our outdoor spaces. Choose from a variety of locations outlined below, from Alexander Palace to Greenwich Park to Kew Gardens; or let me know a place of your choosing.
