All about me

Hi – I’m Rachel, a family photographer in London. I want to help you capture your special moments as a family, creating beautiful works of art that you will treasure for a lifetime.

I cut my teeth as a professional press photographer over 20 years ago and I have been passionate about taking photos of people – and places for that matter – ever since. I bring a wealth of technical expertise and experience to my photography which underpins my warmth and enthusiasm for taking stunningly-unique and timeless images.

My philosophy is to bring my reportage background and a lifestyle approach to create relaxed yet elegant, unaffected portraits of your family that are true to you and capture the essence of your family. Whether at home or on location at your favourite haunt, I want to document what makes you ‘you’ and bring those memories to life as beautiful, stylish works of fine art that you and your children will cherish, creating works of art that are as unique as you and your family. I like to think of it as capturing the ketchup and cornflakes moments of life.
