ABOUT NINA

Documenting the everyday

HELLO

I’m Nina, mum to 3 crazy boys and living in Bexley Kent/South East London. I am a family documentary photographer, specialising in Black & White photography, and capturing candid and authentic images of family life. As a mum to 3, I’m very used to children, and I find children soon relax around me.

With my style of photography, nothing is stressful, we can happily break for the children to have a snack or to feed a little one – all these things are perfect photo opportunities too!

Having spent many years documenting my boys growing up I have a good eye for a picture and see pictures in ordinary, everyday life. This shines through in my photography with a unique style – offering something, quite different, to most family photographers.

Over the years, I’ve been lucky to be featured in a number of publications including a feature in the Daily Telegraph, who got in touch having found my Instagram feed. More recently I was delighted to be invited to join the “Where the Boys are project” a blog of mums of boys around the world sharing their experiences through pictures of their sons.

This year has seen me have my first feature in Vogue which has been amazing and I have enjoyed collaborating with lots of top brands including Ted Baker, Clarks, Hamleys and Ichiba to name but a few of the most recent ones.

My documentary sessions last approximately 2 hours and normally start in the family home. This is particularly beneficial for younger children as they have a chance to get used to me being around, in familiar surroundings. An hour or so in, we all throw on our coats, (or sunglasses weather depending!) and head out to somewhere near you, a short walk or drive, for the second half of the session.

Seasonally, I will offer mini sessions. These sessions last half an hour and are held in specific places on specific dates. Forthcoming sessions include: bluebells, Fathers Day, Lavender filed, Back to School and Autumn sessions. To find out more please click on my prices, blog and events pages. Cant wait to meet you!

New for 2020!

I am now offering two types of studio photography in my pop-up studio at my home in Bexley Village DA5. Firstly, Cake Smash sessions. These are extremely popular to celebrate your little one’s first birthday. They are shot in a very understated way against a white background ensuring your baby stays the focus of the shot. These sessions last approximately 1 hour. 

Secondly, I am offering some posed, yet still natural, New Born photography. These are shot when your baby is between 7-14 days old. Sessions last around 2 hours and at the end, include Mum and Dad too. Siblings are welcome, but need to be brought along nearer the end of the session.

Christmas mini photoshoots priority @ 3B&ME

I’ve been wanting to offer Christmas mini shoots for a long time now. I’ve offered these outside before, but often it has proved tricky due to our UK weather and the timing. One year I offered them on the Southbank and it worked really well but they had to be shot in...

Studio reopening 7th September for sitters and cake smash sessions!

Its It’s been a while, since early March when I (unknowingly) had my last session in my studio - a set of beautiful twins that had been booked in for one of my sitter sessions. Back then, when I gave them both a little cuddle as they said goodbye, I had no idea that...

Extended family newborn shoot – Shoreham Village Kent

I loved meeting this wonderful family. This shoot, originally a lifestyle newborn shoot, had been in my diary for months, but when the pandemic hit, all plans were put on hold. I had quite a few newborn babies booked into my diary (it’s always advisable to pencil...

Autumn Mini Shoots 2019. Booking now open for 2020.

A combination of the Rugby World Cup and the UK weather did its best to spoil these sessions this year!! Living in a house full of boys, and boys that like rugby, I foolishly hadn't connected the date when I booked in my autumn minis for this year! The further along...
