So you’re looking for a family photographer in Hertfordshire?

I’m glad you are here.


Let’s face it, child and family photography can be a bit cheesy.

Thankfully I’m here to shake it up a bit.

As a family photographer in Hertfordshire, I create beautiful pictures from your natural everyday connections and expressions. Re inventing your family photos to leave you with fresh images bursting with character and genuine moments. Personalities leap from my images, not fake smiles.

If that’s what you’re after please stick around!

“We love our photos so much. You captured everything we wanted so perfectly and were so lovely to deal with and be around. Thank you!”

What to expect from your family photographer, Hertfordshire.


Firstly, we need to talk. (That’s a no obligation talk by the way.)

I just like to hear what you want from your family photography. Who you would like photographed, what your family interests are, is the dog coming? The more I know the easier it is to create a family photography shoot that ticks all your boxes.

Above all communication at this point is key. You may have questions about me too. I’m open and honest and totally here to help!


Contact me here to chat!

I’m really relaxed, open to suggestions and full of my own too!

Mainly I shoot on location in Hertfordshire, taking advantage of being surrounded by beautiful countryside and woodland. Similarly we can shoot in a more urban environment, using local industrial settings as our back drop. Anything goes really.

If you prefer a few creature comforts I am happy to come to your Hertfordshire home for our family photography shoot. Don’t worry though, you don’t need a “show home”. Your home environment is perfect to tell your family story. What you might see as mess are real elements of your life. I want to tell it as it is, to create tangible memories of who you are right now.

“We had the best time taking our family photographs. You showed us a magical part of the woods and made us feel at home.  You perfectly captured my daughter’s happy curious spirit and now we have the most beautiful artistic photographs that we will treasure forever. Thank you Denise!”

So how long will my child and family photography take?


Each photo shoot will last approximately 2 hours, although this can vary from family to family. I will always invest my time and effort into putting you and your children at ease so everyone feels relaxed. Really ensuring we get the best from our time together.

I like to shoot freely, letting you and your children interact and play. Ultimately resulting in natural images full of honest, beautiful moments. I often bring along games to encourage play and invite you to bring along anything that you might feel will add to your shoot.

If you have older children who notoriously hate the camera (unless they’re taking the picture!) don’t worry. I’ll try and impress them with some cool dialogue, but  probably fail as they cringe into their devices.  Ultimately though, I’m confident that I’ll win them round and put them at ease. I have four of my own so I should know how to handle them!

 Happily I am around for conversations before our shoot. To advise on clothing choices, location, package choices and anything that may crop up in between!

” I cannot thank you enough for our gorgeous photography Denise! Having a small baby with us I was a bit anxious , but I didn’t need to worry! We were made to feel at ease and the kids had a great time! Thank you for our prints that capture our family perfectly and we will treasure forever xx”

After our family photography shoot, the fun continues for me.


Each image taken is individually assessed and edited. I use my artistic interpretation to show your images at their best. Therefore creating a collection of roughly 30-40 images that are not only emotive but beautiful too. Worthy of the family album and your walls.

This will be delivered via a private on line gallery within two/three weeks. You can then view this at your leisure, share with family and friends and choose your print or digital package.

Once you have chosen your package I will then deliver your prints or USB personally if you’re local because I’m nice!

( And if you’re not local, they will be carefully packaged and sent first class.)

So How Much Will My Family Photography in Hertfordshire Cost?


I’m excited at the prospect of photographing your family so hope I can offer a package to suit.

You will find my range of price options here.

Whether your shoot is in your home or outside, travel costs are included within a 12 mile radius of Welwyn Garden City. (I am willing to travel further but this will incur a small travel expense.)

If you don’t find what you are looking for and are after something little different just get in touch. I am happy to chat over your needs and design a package to suit.

If you would like to book me as your child and family photographer in Hertfordshire, please leave me a message here.

I’ll be in touch soon!

My family photography style can be described as lifestyle or documentary. I like to keep things fluid and natural. Definitely more moved by the moment than a cheesy grin.
