your beautiful

SURREY FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT

The story of family life is imperfect, beautiful and entirely yours. My love, as a Surrey family photographer, is to capture the special moments that bind you, the unique chemistry that exists only in your world. The love that exists in the quiet spaces between the chaos, the loud, messy fits of giggles. The joy of connection, not posed or forced. Just perfect for those who are a little unsure about being in front of the camera. Those are the seconds that make up the loving family photographs and films I capture. Whether 'in home', outdoors or on the beach it is permission to stop, enjoy & indulge in each other. Creating the most beautiful tangible memories. Pictures that provoke conversations and inspire little minds.

Creating your own perfectly imperfect legacy.

BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS

Hester is the most amazingly talented Guildford photographer, especially when it comes to children. She managed to capture beautiful moments of me and my toddler in our Guildford home, even when I struggled to keep my little girl still, let alone to get her to smile! The photos are just beautiful. Hester must have used a little bit of magic to make those moments.

Guildford FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT

GREAT FUN

The family photoshoot was great fun and Hester was brilliant - warm, friendly, amusing and down to earth. Striking the perfect balance between directing us to ensure great photos and stepping back to capture us interacting naturally as a family. She was so patient with the kids and the photos are just beautiful. Thank you Hester.

GUILDFORD MOTHERHOOD SHOOT

your family

PHOTOSHOOT

As an experienced Surrey family photographer you can trust me to deliver a beautiful gallery of joy-filled photographs. Much of this is in the planning. I'll help you with what to wear, and how to prepare your family for the shoot. I'll pick a great location, find perfect light and inject plenty of fun throughout the shoot. Resulting in a collection of stunning images - that you will be proud to have on your walls.

THE PRICING COLLECTIONS

As an experienced Guildford family photographer I am happy to shoot in most locations. That being said I am a light seeker and will find the most amazing secluded places with flattering light, in and around Guildford, Surrey. The summer season is perfect for sunset daisy and wildflower field shoots. The autumn for cosy countryside walks. The beach perfect for running wild and free.

Your Surrey home is the perfect backdrop for year round shooting.

DO YOU SHOOT OUTDOORS as WELL AS 'in home' photography?

Yes I love both. Wild Surrey countryside, daisy fields, autumn walks & sunset beaches. But your home is where my heart is. I seek out beautiful light, find gentle corners of cosiness and help you & your family look stunning. Don't worry if your home isn't 'magazine worthy' - I create gorgeous pictures you will be proud to hang on your wall. I am a Guildford family photographer & happy to travel throughout Surrey, Sussex and South London.

I HATE MYSELF IN PICTURES. CAN YOU JUST FOCUS ON THE CHILDREN AND I WILL HIDE OUT THE WAY?

Everyone says this. And I mean - everyone! I'll pop you in the most flattering light and help you relax. When you look back at your photos you won't see the few pounds you want to lose or the lines you don't love. You will see an 'in love, happy, smiling' parent. Who doesn't want that? If you don't do it for you - do it for your children. One day they are going to want pictures of you. I guarantee it.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD/DOG/PARTNER DOESN'T BEHAVE OR HAS A TANTRUM?

Yep we have all been there. I have two little folk who keep me on my toes. My job is to capture the beauty within the chaos. To record real moments in an authentic, beautiful way. Involving your family in 'getting ready' helps but I have several tricks up my sleeve for children (& adults too!) to keep the peace and help everyone look like they love each other!

can we have a photoshoot and a little film too?

Oh yes! A film can be added on to any package. A one minute family film is perfect to freeze those moments.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Prices start at £250 for a Guildford family photoshoot, this includes some digital images. Let's get you booked in. Click here to send me a message and we can pencil in a date. Don't forget to check your junk mail!

YOUR

FAMILY FILM

 

I have always yearned after movement in my photography. To say I have caught the film bug is an understatement. As a creative Surrey family photographer I always look and wait for those little details. The bouncing curls. The chubby little hand in yours. The squeeze around your neck as they snuggle in for a hug. Those heart squeezing moments you see as a parent. But to capture this as an emotive film takes it to another level. Watching one of my films is like opening an old musty album of precious family photographs and seeing them bounce into life.

This legacy is all yours.

Add this on to your shoot package for £300.
