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!

13 years of Mark Warner Holidays!

I can remember the exact moment we decided to try this bunch out: I was sat in our rented accommodation (we'd sold one house and were renting another while our forever home was being renovated) with a 2 year old and a 6 month old baby, surrounded by chaos. I’d had to...

Its a whole new element in school holiday chaos!

It’s a new dimension in stress today - stress that has arrived in the form of a 10 foot trampoline with no safety net. Of course, said trampoline was indeed ordered with a safety net and a zip that made sure none of the boys could fall out and break anything. However,...

A beautiful sun down family photoshoot in Ightham, Sevenoaks – Kent

When I first spoke to J about her family photoshoot, back in the spring time, we discussed the possibility of this shoot being an early evening shoot. Her children are teenagers now and this is a good time of day for them. And, if you’ve followed my Instagram feed,...

Tonbridge family photoshoot

It is always my absolute pleasure to be invited back to photograph families. It’s such an honour and so lovely that they enjoyed their first shoot so much that they want you to come back again! Thank you! I first met this wonderful family (who, like pretty much all my...

A Brick Lane photoshoot for my very good mate Jo!

I love my mate Jo, she's also known by several other names, some of which I’ll share, some of which I won't! But my favourite nickname for this one is "Roomy". Roomy because on many girls’ holidays, me and her have shared a room - she's well versed at my getting...

An extended family shoot – Tower Bridge and The Southbank – London

 I think it is no secret that I love London - not just a little bit - but a proper love - a place that I can’t wait to get to and really enjoy shooting in. I have, over the years, taken so many images of my own family in London, such as trips to musical instrument...
