AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY-STYLE PHOTOGRAPHY & FILMS FOR FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES | LONDON

No fixed grins, no awkward poses: just natural personalities.

DOCUMENTARY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY & FILMS

Mother in a striped top and jeans adjusts her son's pirate mask while younger son reads on the floor wearing a yellow striped t-shirt. A box has been made into a pirate ship saying The Jolly Backhoo with a tea towel with slogan A Room of One's Own as a flag. Natural family photography in Lee

It’s the little details and the small moments that make up your family story – the toys scattered on the floor; the teenagers raiding the fridge; the scrunched up nose at a family ‘in’ joke; the ‘pet lip’ on the cusp of a tantrum; the tiny mucky handprints on the wall. Real life – meaningful, sometimes a little crazy round the edges, organic and unscripted – not Insta-life!

Stunning photos …

Heartwarming stuff …

Rachel is both talented and lovely to work with

Natasha,
Clapham, London

Like many people, I’m not a massive fan of having my photo taken, but Rachel made me feel relaxed and, dare I say it, I actually enjoyed it!

Super pleased with the photos. Being a coach, it’s important that my photos create a sense of who I am, which these really do.

Thank you for doing such a great job with my branding film – I LOVE it! Watching it made me all emotional! Thank you for putting me at ease and making it such a relaxed and enjoyable experience. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.

I was fearing meltdown but the kids actually had a ton of fun with Rachel. She really managed to capture the kids in their element.

You mean I don’t have to smile for the camera? This isn’t like having your school photos taken AT ALL – it’s just running around and playing and being me. This is fun!

From the moment Rachel came into my studio she put me at ease. I had been overwhelmed as to how to present the different strings to my bow, but we talked, she filmed and took photos, capturing all the tiny details to create a beautiful montage that captured the essence of my working methods and creativity. These are windows into my creative world!

Rachel was great fun to work with on our branding shoot – really relaxed and understood our vision and how to illustrate that to our potential clients with high quality photography.

Sara
Studio SeARCH Architects, Hackney, London

Rachel was incredibly friendly and easy going which put everyone at ease, even two reluctant young children. I’m so grateful to Rachel for having captured this special time for our family and delighted with the photos. What a talent!

Sabina
Fulham, London

Thank you so, so much: we LOVE them! There are so many beautiful shots – you are very clever! We will treasure them forever. 

Katherine
Tooting, London

We had a lovely family shoot with Rachel which was really relaxed and good fun. Rachel caught some lovely moments and really got the best out of our toddler. She has a great eye for the right shots and the best light and made us feel very comfortable.

Boris & Lucy
Sydenham, London

We so enjoyed our shoot with Rachel – her cheeriness and warmth made us feel right at ease and it shows in the photos! We’re delighted with them.

Adela
Brockley, London

Rachel was incredibly patient with our hungry and sometimes crying newborn. We are very very happy with the photos and so pleased to have such beautiful images of our daughter at this young age.

Hi – I’m Rachel.

With over 20 years experience I have photographed all walks of life from the Royal Family to sheep farmers and everything and everyone in between.

If you’re just after a few quick snapshots on a tight budget, then I am not the right photographer for you. If you’re after family photos of you all in your Sunday best in a picturesque location, I’m probably not your photographer either. And I’m definitely not the photographer for you if you want studio backdrops and lights and poses and directions to smile, or fancy frills and stylised images.

But if you value memories and want to look back on a family life filled with extraordinary ordinary moments; if you will cherish those works of art for years to come; if you value showcasing those images – on the wall or mantlepiece, in the hallway, above the bed, pride of place over your sofa; or treasured in an album on a shelf, pulled out and poured over for this generation and the next – with the highest calibre prints, frames and albums that will last a lifetime; or you want to invest in yourself and your business with showstopper images that tell your story and stand the test of time … then we may just be the perfect match!
