STOP & BREATHE!
I know. It’s stressful looking for a photographer. There are literally thousands of websites out there and this one is likely not the first that you have looked at. But how do you know which one to choose? Who can you trust? What makes one photographer better than another? You know what, you just have to go with your heart. You have to find the one that you look at their work and maybe have a nosey at who they are as a person and you just know. Hopefully, that’s me, but if it’s not, that’s OK too and you can continue looking.
What can I offer you that makes me different from all the others? Good question.
You want someone to take beautiful portraits of your family, that’s a given, someone to capture the moments that are quickly passing by. A photographer who will not only help you choose what you want to wear for the day but will meet up with you for a coffee before your shoot to discuss ideas and go through everything that’s involved and what to expect. You want someone who guides you during your shoot and yet still creates those beautiful, natural-looking images that don’t look at all posed, you want options of digital files or wall art because you don’t have the time to sort it out yourself, you want all that and more and you want it without spending an absolute fortune! Well, maybe you’ve just landed on the right website and have found that perfect photographer.
You have a little family (or maybe a big one!) and the children are growing a little too quickly for your liking. To capture the fleeting moments, you probably already take hundreds of photos on your phone which you love and cherish but you would like something more. You want to have a professional session where you’re prepared, you’re all wearing outfits that go together and you’ve had your hair and nails done. Or maybe it’s just you’d like to be in a few more photos instead of taking them. I can help you. I create beautiful photographs that you and your family will treasure forever and proudly show off on your walls.
Before your session, we will have a chat about your family. We will discuss what you like to do, your favourite places, your interests and we will put it all together in a plan of action of where to take your photos, what to wear, and what specifically to encorporate on the day. The sessions are approximately 2 hours long and will be entirely taylored to your family’s identity. We could be at your home, at the local park, down in the woods or at your favourite family cafe.
“Ali is a fantastic photographer. We have been going to her for years to get our family portraits and we are always over the moon with them. The children really enjoy it and she’s so patient and makes them laugh so much. She really captures their characters beautifully.”
Liza, Kingston Upon Thames
“Ali had a very natural way with my children helping them to become instantly comfortable and to achieve the desired shots.”
Specialist children’s photography is about creating something bespoke and beautiful for your child. It is where we can get creative with locations, outfits, styled images as well as more natural images. These shoots are all about the children.
I spend all my time with your child getting to know their personalities and capturing them at their best and often leave having made a new little friend!
If she would love to dress up as a Princess and dance around the woods, this is possible; if he would like to take his trains to the park, we can do that too.
A newborn is one of the most precious things this life can bring to us. Your baby has arrived into this world and is the smallest that they will ever be. It is the perfect time to have photos taken so that you can always remember how little and fragile they once were.
Before your session, I will spend some time talking about what style of newborn photography you would like whether it’s more lifestyle and capturing the moments shared with a new family or whether you would like more posed shots with baby on a blanket. Your session can take anywhere from 2-4 hours and is completely relaxed. If baby wants to feed, you feed; if baby is usettled, you give cuddles. Like you, I’m baby led and we will work together to create those gorgeous images of your new bundle.
“Ali is like the baby whisperer! I was quite nervous when she arrived and didn’t really know what to expect but she made us feel that our daughter was so safe in her hands and the photographs are just stunning.”
“Throughout my pregnancy, I felt that it was just going too quickly and I wanted to capture some professional photos. Ali helped me with ideas from her Pinterest boards and we worked together to create the art that I now have on my walls”
So you’re expecting a baby! Such an exciting time. You want to remember it with some beautiful images before your feet are too swollen and you can’t fit your wedding ring on any more!
The best time for a maternity shoot is between 33 and 35 weeks. Before your session, we will have get together and talk about the style of the shoot, what to wear, where to go, and probably coo over some baby grows and teddies that you’re trying hard not to buy but just can’t resist. You might be feeling insecure about your ever growing body but you can feel assured to know that your photos will ‘blooming’ gorgeous and that I will work with you to make sure that you’re comfortable and looking your best.

We have been very lucky to know Ali for many years and have used her amazing skills for several family occasions including birthdays, my daughter’s prom, baby announcements, gender reveal and just updating our family photos. She has been absolutely fantastic, extremely professional and lovely to work with- especially with our kids- and has captured some truly beautiful moments in our family that we display throughout our home. I have recommended her to friends, all of whom have been impressed with her talent and have, in turn, recommended her to others. We have another baby on the way and are really looking forward to being able to do a new born shoot soon! Thanks, Ali!Victoria Hopkins
I’d highly recommend working with her if you want some great photos of how you and your family look right now. We change and grow up so quickly, it’s wonderful to have photos of moments along the way – be they milestones or just a Sunday in the woods.
Ali has taken photos for our family a few times and we have always loved the end products.
She is brilliant with children and has an amazing talent for capturing and editing very special images that we will treasure forever.
Friendly and professional – highly recommended.Lizanne Matthews
