Authentic, in-the-moment family lifestyle photography. Serving Putney & Guildford with surrounding areas. Come join me on my adventure!
"Childhood is a once-in-a lifetime experience..
the days may seem long but the years go fast."
Imagine photographs with a “through the keyhole” feel–photographs that tell a tale of love, laughter and sticking together no matter what. Focusing on journalistic style photography we limit the number of posed and staged photographs, trying instead to highlight the in-between moments. Understanding that each family is unique in their style, dynamic and story, we produce images that reflect that individuality.
Our sessions are designed to create a warm and welcoming environment, allowing you to let down your guard and relax into the moment. The feeling of 'I need to look good/natural but I don't know how to' can build a lot of pressure and make you feel nervous about being photographed. But hey, all that you really need to be thinking about is hanging out with your family and enjoying yourself. That's the beauty of lifestyle photography!
Because we understand our clients desire for beautiful, classic products that will stand the test of time and exceed their expectations, we represent a Scandinavian take on quality, style and sustainability—the very best that are possible in family lifestyle photography. To minimise our carbon footprint we use local suppliers, recycled & naturally resourced materials—linen instead of leather, cardboard instead of plastic, reusable ink pads and rubber stamps.
I migrated here from Sweden in 2012 and currently live in Guildford with my very tall, very handsome Englishman. We got married in July 2016 and it was the most beautiful day I could have ever imagined! (Here are some photos!). We also have a very sweet and completely insane little pug named Watson.
The first time I picked up a camera was back in 2005, mainly as a way to photograph my first baby sister Lova and document the life we were living. Now, living 600+ miles away from her and my other sister Julia, my every-day-family-life photos with them are some of my most treasured.
My mum has always had this poster in her house that says "The little things in life become the big things" and I am a firm believer in that statement!
I usually hang out with little people and have been nannying part time since 2013. I think children are absolutely brilliantly funny and honest, and never see it as 'work' to spend time with them.
Other interests of mine include coffee, running/hiking/climbing/horse riding, everything Jesus, reading thrillers and soaking in candle-lit bubble baths.
Enjoy an afternoon of immersing yourselves into the beautiful outdoors – not just any old park but a truly stunning, rural 'off the path' place where we won't be interrupted by other people. This is not a session for the faint-hearted as you may find yourselves being directed into fields where the grass stands tall or into oceans where the water is blue.
Ideal for those who have just welcomed a newborn into their family or who have very little children, this is a relaxed, playful and intimate session that takes place in the comfort of your own home. Prepare to spend some serious quality time with your little ones!
Learning what kind words past clients have to say about me and my photography might be helpful and comforting for you as a prospective client.

Anna was great with the whole family and made us all feel very much at ease so the shoot never felt staged at all. The resulting photos were just stunning–The photographs made me feel truly special. Anna captured our daughter in the most beautiful and natural way and her calm manner very much came across in the photographs. Would highly recommend Anna for any family.
Thank you Anna

Thank you so so much for such a wonderful opportunity, you have the most incredible ability to capture their personality with only having met them that morning! Thank you thank you so so much, you’re amazing!
Anna, the images are simply stunning. As we went through them, we had about 57 “favourites”! It’s been so difficult to choose just a few as they’re all so wonderful. They are fantastic images which capture the natural craziness of our life with three toddler boys!!! You really are so very talented and we appreciate all your incredibly hard work. Thank you again, your experience and natural talent is worth every single penny.
All the best,
Joanna and Jeroen
