Picture of London lifestyle photographer Irma Arrowsmith of England, United Kingdom

Hi there, I'm Irma, a mum and family documentary photographer born in the Netherlands and living in London. I've always had a passion for photography, and have taken photos all over the world on my travels, before I finally moved to London, got married, had a baby girl and started my own business. I love the joy, fun, humour and happy chaos of family life - something I try to reflect in my work. For me it's all about capturing the tiny moments that say something unique about you and your child and family. Whether it's messy meal times, splashy bath times or a day in the park, it's the seemingly insignificant details, captured on camera unposed and unfiltered, that show the individuality of each and every family.

Lifestyle Photographer, Alexa Kidd-May of London.

Hello, I’m Alexa - a specialist storytelling family photographer based in London. I love to photograph real life as it unfolds and my working style is calm, relaxed and most importantly fun! It’s not about awkward posing and smiling for the camera – it’s more about capturing the natural moments of family life. As my two kids grow up they teach me that life’s precious moments are hidden around every corner. Looking back at the photos I’ve taken throughout their childhood is one of my greatest joys. My aim is to capture that joy and emotion for you and to create a beautiful set of timeless images for your whole family to enjoy for ever. It sometimes feels like there are actually four kids in our family: my husband, our two children and possibly the cutest dog in the world. When we’re not battling it out over a board game or cooking huge family roast dinners I get the chance to lose myself in the latest Netflix drama series, before working my way through endless “to do” lists which never, ever get finished! And did I mention I quite like chocolate too?

London Lifestyle Photographer, Marion Pelletant - UK

I'm a family lifestyle photographer based in London. I've always been passionate about photography but it's only in the last few years that I started specialising in family and baby photography. I believe that children are a godsend for a family photographer because they give so much and are so open with their emotions that it reflects on all the family, unlocking all the love and playfulness. I'm originally from France but I love my new home in the UK, walking through Kent's countryside or London's landmarks with my family.

London Lifestyle Photography by Ana Ruivo

I create soulful images and films full of emotion, love, and real moments that are so timeless and classic that looking back at them transports people right back to that moment in time and brings on a wave of nostalgia so real that they feel it in their bones. The clients I work with seek me out for my approach to documenting everyday life and ability to create beautiful images for them without any pressure to perform or be anything but themselves. They tend to feel a strong connection to their home, to their family, and to the idea of preserving memories and stories that can be handed down to their children and their children's children. I was born in sunny Portugal, former Architect and designer, now London based family photographer and filmmaker, available for domestic or international travel. I moved to the London in 2010, and I live here in this beautiful and vibrant city with my husband and my two little girls.

Portrait of Northern Ireland family lifestyle photographer Melanie Hudson of the United Kingdom

Hi my name is Melanie and I am Mel Hudson Photography and I’m a Lifestyle Maternity, Newborn & Outdoor Family Photographer based in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim. I’m also Mummy to 4 little humans. My passion for outdoor photography has been around for as long as I can remember. Long before camera phones were a constant companion my SLR accompanied me everywhere. I would spend hours developing my images in Dark Rooms watching the paper come alive with moments I had captured. I've been told its best if I pop a few details about me down. So here it goes real quick. I'm an introvert with a camera, love warmth, cherish my family & friends, travelled the world and ended up back home because there really is no place like home and if I have a spare 20 minutes I'm either getting lost in the book for this months book club or watching Grace & Frankie on Netflix…. and breathe.

West Sussex Lifestyle Family Photographer Nicola Hudson

A trained photojournalist, and having photographed over 500 weddings, events, families, and couples, I have the experience, skillset, and knowledge to take true documentary photos that tell the real story and personality of you and your loved ones. I have a naturally creative eye, therefore being artistic, seeing things from another perspective, chasing the light and looking for pockets of light, creating dynamic compositions, and getting down to your child’s eye level is how I capture life through their eyes. It’s an enjoyable and rewarding job, and I am a true perfectionist in what I do, but more than anything I'm passionate. You won’t be disappointed. I have a very relaxed style of photography and like to let things unfold naturally, encouraging children to run around and explore so that I can see them naturally, keeping them engaged and capturing their individual expressions and unscripted moments, this is the point in lifestyle photography. I’m always happy to give gentle direction with any type of portrait and even with family lifestyle sessions, I will generally take a handful of group photos, parent and child portraits, and individual photos of the child/ children, aiming for a mix of a small number somewhat posed as well as the main bigger bulk of the images being un-posed and true. They don’t have to be elaborate affairs, some of my favourite photos were normal, simple, everyday moments - captured beautifully and naturally, using natural light, which I’m known for.

Norfolk Lifestyle Photography by Rob Dodsworth, UK

I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings and families since 2010. One of the best things in life is a good story and that's what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by. I get my best images when you're just being yourselves - natural light and natural emotions!

Portrait of Martin Dabek, Bristol Family Photographer

Hi, I’m Martin! I live in the city of Bristol in a cosy house with my beautiful wife (teenage love birds), a fun-loving baby boy (sleep thief) and stubborn Golden retriever called Lulu. My favourite things in the world are travelling and watching movies, and when I’m not shooting weddings or making family portraits you’ll find me walking with my dog, watching Netflix and planning my next trip. Nothing makes me happier than hiking in the mountains, camping or visiting new places. I’m addicted to Mate (South American caffeine-rich infused drink), hummus and spicy Asian food!

Bedfordshire, UK Lifestyle Photography by Sharron Gibson

Hugger. Mother. Earl Grey tea drinker. And, oh yes. Rather importantly, I'm obsessed with light, finding it and looking at it. I love just watching different qualities of light and seeing how it moves and changes the world. I'm a former BBC journalist who went on to study an MA in Photojournalism and follow my photography passion. Photographing families and creating memories for them was born out of that passion.

Portrait of Kingston Lifestyle Photographer Viara Mileva

Before becoming a family and lifestyle portrait photographer, I was a parenting scientist. I got a PhD, analyzing thousands of mothers playing with their babies and I learned to notice tiny changes in facial expressions, small movements, and family dynamics. These are important to my photography today. I now live on an acreage near Kingston, with my husband, three children, and a menagerie of animals. My days are spent with the crow of roosters out the window, while I drink ALL the coffee and spread the joy of loving your life, loving your real self, and being forgiving of yourself as a parent.

Belgium Lifestyle Photographer, Ruth Wytinck, from Flanders

By taking photos of my sons, the value of small everyday moments really became clear to me. I photograph them during play and mischief, during fun moments and crying, during fraternization and quarrels. These photos say so much about them and their personality that I am sure that they will cherish these memories the most later. I also want to realize these memories with you. I live and work in Landegem near Ghent, but as a photographer I go everywhere. Feel free to contact me if you live in Antwerp, Ostend, Brussels, Kortrijk or Hasselt. A trip abroad is also perfectly possible.

Ireland and Dublin lifestyle and family photography by Camila Lee

I am Camila and I photograph families spending time and having fun together. ​ My job is to make sure your kids have photos with you in them to look back on. I am a mum too, and just like you, I take lots of photos of my daughter with my phone, but I am not in a lot of them... just like you... but I can help you with that! ​ My story with photography began in 2007 when I was in fashion college. I fell in love with photography, and have been married to a camera ever since. ​ I believe photographs have the power to take us back in time. I love looking back at my family photos, they always put a smile on my face. I'd love to put a smile on your face too. ​ I'm the kind of person who always sees a half-full glass and the little things in life make me happy, like seeing other people laugh or eating biscuits for breakfast.
