Capturing the ‘ketchup & cornflakes’ moments of everyday family life as timeless works of art

London Family Photographer – Premium documentary and lifestyle family photography

A published, multi international award-winning, London family photographer documenting the beautiful in the ordinary everyday moments. Stunning, unique and natural family portraits to treasure for a lifetime.

“Stunning photos … heartwarming stuff … Rachel is both talented and lovely to work with,” Natasha, Clapham

No fixed grins, no awkward poses: just natural personalities, gestures and expressions shining through to create relaxed yet elegant portraits.

A unique London family photo session – simple, unaffected, authentically you.

It’s the little details and the small moments that make up your family story – the piles of laundry on the sofa; the toys scattered on the floor; the scrunched up nose at a joke; the ‘pet lip’ on the cusp of a tantrum; the curtains you never really liked; the tiny mucky handprints on the wall. Real life – meaningful, a little crazy round the edges, organic and unscripted – not Insta-life!

Signature and ultimate luxury ‘Day in the life’ London family photography sessions available. Contact me for more information and a brochure.

Luxury bespoke service with a focus on exceptional quality and highest-calibre fine art prints and products.

All about me

Hi – I’m Rachel. I’m passionate about capturing your special moments as a family, creating beautiful works of art from your ‘ordinary’ that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Memories are not created in a studio with a white backdrop, with fixed grins and matching outfits and ‘no-hair-out-of-place’ perfect hairstyles. They’re created in the everyday moments – the fleeting smiles and crashing tantrums and the snuggles on the sofa and the sitting down to dinner together and the running through the woods and the asleep in the back of the car on the way home. All the tiny details and seemingly ‘ordinary’ moments of your life that weave together to tell your story.

Highly accomplished 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. Published and  multi international award-winning, I have been featured in Vogue Italia and legendary photographer Rankin’s This is Britain book; shortlisted as Professional Photographer of the Year; and I am a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. I bring a reportage approach to create a unique family photography experience making relaxed yet elegant, unaffected portraits of your family that capture the essence of you and your story.
