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.

An extended family shoot for a family in Sevenoaks

Judith first got in touch as her sister was visiting from Hong Kong and wanted to know if I could come and photograph them all, together with their little ones’ Grandparents, just before the main summer holidays started.  I often get booked for these shoots and I...

A commercial branding shoot for local magazine writer Rachael Hale

I first met Rachael, Home Interiors Writer, when she contacted me having seen my blog about renovating my family home. She was really interested to come and interview me about the works and the style of the new part of my home. I was delighted and the extra bonus was...

An at home newborn shoot for a little man just under 3 weeks.

 I love all my work. I feel so privileged to be allowed to capture family memories, particularly when I’m invited to such an exciting time of someone’s life, such as the birth of a new small person.  You will often find me saying over on my instagram page...

A Commercial Shoot for City IT Recruitment Firm Burns Sheehan

This is by far the biggest job I have undertaken to date. When the brief came in I was so excited as it included phrases such as "edgy" "black and white", and "looking away from the camera casual shots" to update imagery for their new website.  I went to meet...

Watergate Bay Hotel in Newquay – paradise found….

Our journey to finding this place is a story in itself. Our wonderful holiday group, who, if you’re a regular reader of mine, will know I love and mention all the time, were looking for somewhere to book for a mini break. In our group, we have a lot of very good...

Vacation photoshoot for four families traveling from America, The Netherlands, Finland and England

  One of the things that surprised me, when I started in this business quite a few years ago now, is how fellow professionals were all so welcoming. I had expected that I would, eventually, be seen as competition, but I was welcomed with open arms into this tight...
