Welcome!

Hi, I'm Nina. I'm a mum to two girls and love almost everything about living in London (though I do miss the Australian beaches!). In my free time you’ll find me relishing a quiet coffee with my husband, wandering amongst the Impressionists at the National Gallery or curling up on the sofa with a cinnamon tea and a Lindt ball to watch the latest period drama.

And let me guess:

  • You’re a mum or mum-to-be who loves your life but wishes you had an extra two hours every day for the projects that really inspire you?

  • You pour endless time and love (and tears) into your family and sometimes feel overwhelmed by the demands of motherhood?

  • Every day in your home there are moments of joy and tenderness that make your heart swell and you wish there was a way you could bottle that feeling?

  • You appreciate quality photography and have a bare wall in your bedroom crying out for family images. But the last time you hired a photographer was for your wedding and you’re not sure you have the time (or energy) to arrange a family photoshoot?

Let me help.

What does a family photoshoot look like?

Think of your photoshoot as dedicated family time. I’ll come to your home or you’ll come to my natural light studio and for 60-90 minutes you’ll read nursery rhymes with your toddler, bounce on the bed with your five year old, blow raspberries on your baby’s tummy or snuggle with your newborn. I’ll give gentle direction simply to ensure everyone is looking their best.

No awkward posing required. We're telling the mini stories that make up your everyday life.

Ten days later you’ll receive a gallery of 25+ images that you can’t wait to share with your family overseas. They’ll capture your life’s everyday moments and somehow make them feel magical.

But what about…

Worried about the cost? Of course. We all want to spend our money on the things we value most. My pricing is transparent and inclusive, there is no separate session fee, and all packages include a selection of digital images.

Worried your baby will be fussy or that your toddler will misbehave? There’s always plenty of time to settle your baby and we’ll work together to turn around any upsets. I’ve had lots of practice. My own daughters are master tantrum throwers!

Worried you won’t like the way you look? That’s why you hire a professional - we know the most flattering angles and making sure mum looks her natural best is one of my priorities.

Your beautifully imperfect life

If you’re only looking for photos where everyone is posed and smiling directly at the camera, or where your newborn is perfectly positioned in a basket, I may not be the photographer for you.

Instead, we will capture your daughter’s squeals of delight as she’s thrown in the air by her dad or your newborn’s milky skin as they nuzzle against your shoulder.

The booking process is simple (email me!) and we’ll find a time that suits your schedule. Before the shoot i’ll send you a few simple tips for how to prepare (it’s easy! you already have everything you need) and if you don’t love your images i’ll refund your money.

Babies and children grow way too quickly! If you’ve checked out my portfolio and think i might be a good fit for your family get in touch today.

Mum (and dad), let me show you the beauty of what your sleepless nights and sometimes endless days are creating.
