NATURAL - AUTHENTIC - CREATIVE
CHILDREN'S AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY IN LONDON
Stephanie's style of photography is about more than casual snapshots. It's about creating beautiful portraits that capture moments of precious childhood that you will want to treasure for years to come. Stephanie's style of photography is very relaxed so that children have the space to be themselves naturally without feeling they need to perform for the camera, ensuring that the photographs are both natural and authentic.
ON-LOCATION FAMILY PORTRAITURE IN YOUR OWN HOME
Stephanie starts sessions in either your own home or at an agreed outdoor location. Stephanie's work often incorporates beautiful locations in London and Surrey to add context and interest to your photographs. There are so many beautiful places in London such as Richmond Park, Clapham Common, Bushy Park, Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park, Primrose Hill, Wimbledon Common and Hampstead Heath which can provide a wonderful backdrop to your family photographs.
CREATING BEAUTIFUL & AUTHENTIC PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORIES OF CHILDHOOD
Stephanie's aim when photographing families and children in London and Surrey is to capture far more than just the likeness of your children but to create a session that is fun for everyone so that their true personalities can shine. During your consultation Stephanie will discuss what your children like doing, their personalities and favourite pastimes so that you can work together to create a fun shoot that is full of adventure and results in natural smiles and expressions.
CHILD AND FAMILY FILM PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE ULTIMATE IN QUALITY
Stephanie is one of the few photographers in the UK that still shoots exclusively on film for the ultimate in quality. Black-and-white film still has a very different look and feel to digital photographs and the inherent beauty of film and its unique grain structure becomes an important part of the photograph. Stephanie also provides digital scans of the negatives for her clients so that with each beautifully framed print they also have the convenience of being able to share their photographs online with family and friends.
CREATIVE, AUTHENTIC AND NATURAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF CHILDREN
Stephanie's style of photography seeks out quiet moments when children are not performing for the camera. Shoots are fun but calm so that a full range of expressions can be captured of your children. Stephanie is particularly known for her soulful portraits of children that capture them in quiet moments where they are unaware of the camera and are totally relaxed. When combined with beautiful backdrops these photographs can make stunning wall art for you to treasure over the years to come.
