Hello there…

Welcome.  I’m Louisa, a Cambridge photographer specialising in natural and relaxed family portraits. I photograph children and families in the gorgeous great outdoors in and around Cambridge, Newmarket and Saffron Walden.  My sessions are all about having fun together as a family and capturing real smiles.  I love to make beautiful and timeless portraits that will bring a smile to your face whenever you look at them on your wall!

As well as family work, I’ve styled and shot beautiful new branding photography for lots of small business and entrepreneurs around Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.  I believe that telling the story of your business is absolutely key to making your brand stand out from the crowd through imagery.

Lastly, I teach beginner’s photography to help you get the most from that new DSLR camera you just bought.  I’ve taught a wealth of Mums and Dads how to use their cameras to take great shots of their children and families at home, out for walks, on holidays and special occasions.

I’d love to work with you, whether it be photographing your family, capturing some great new brand shots for your business or teaching you how to get the best from your DSLR camera!



My style of family photography is natural and relaxed.  A family photo shoot with me is all about having fun and capturing real smiles, giving you a beautiful collection of modern family portraits.  My aim is to provide a record of your family that brings a smile to your face when it’s hanging on your wall – something your whole family will treasure forever.

I photograph families and children throughout Cambridgeshire and Suffolk including Cambridge, Newmarket, Saffron Walden and Bury St Edmunds.

Family photoshoots are £149, with photos bought separately afterwards, starting from £399.



Throughout the year, I offer a number of family mini shoot days.  These take place, usually on weekends or school holidays, at various gorgeous rural locations through Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.  Families can book a time slot to come along for a short photoshoot on their chosen day.  The number of mini shoot days available each year are limited, typically a couple in Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Family mini-shoots are £200 and include your five favourite photos.  Upgrade options are available.



Alongside my family photography work, I have been photographing entrepreneurs and small lifestyle brands throughout Cambridgeshire and Suffolk for the last 5 years.  I strongly believe photography for your business should bring your brand to life and reflect the very essence of what you do. 

I have over 12 years experience in marketing and PR, so I can help guide you through styling, taking and choosing the right photographs to grow your personal brand.

Personal Branding shoots start from £399.



In addition to creating family portraits, working with businesses and brands throughout Cambridgeshire and Suffolk to create storytelling images is something I love.

I have over 6 years experience working as a professional photographer, but before that, 12 years experience working in PR and Marketing with big brands such as Disney, and P&O Cruises.  Having this background means I’m able to listen to your brief, and work carefully with your team to deliver photography that is relevant to your brand, styling and communication requirements.

Half Day commercial photography rates start from £600.


Photography training in Cambridge, Newmarket and Saffron Walden

I offer hands-on and practical photography tuition for Mums and Dads who’d like to use their DSLR camera out of ‘auto’ mode.

Learn from an award-winning local photographer how to take great photos of your children and family.  You’ll cover some of the basics including aperture, shutter speed and ISO to find your way around your camera.  See how light and composition can help you take better photographs of your children and family.

A 2-hour private lesson starts from £199 and gift vouchers are available for birthdays, anniversaries and new baby gifts!



Giving the gift of beautiful family photos is always welcome!  Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous new set of portraits to brighten a wall at home?

I offer gift certificates for family shoots, seasonal mini shoots, beginner’s photography courses and one-to-one photography training.

Stunning! Beautiful! Brilliant! Hotly anticipated photos left us speechless. The beauty in Louisa’s photographs is astonishing – not only does she capture those ‘moments’ but her compositions, use of light and colour, perspective – all comes together to provide a set of images of our family that we will all cherish forever. An incredibly talented photographer, who effortlessly put us all at ease and made the entire shoot fun for everyone. We are delighted with the results and feel very lucky to have had such an enjoyable experience. Could not recommend more highly …. be prepared for the fact you’ll want to buy and print your entire collection!

Elaine - Saffron Walden

Louisa is an exceptional photographer. It is not just the amazing images she captures, which totally reflect the characters of our family, but the manner in which she goes about a shoot – she is fabulous with little ones and has the whole family giggling and feeling stress free. I would highly recommend Louisa for a family photoshoot – at any stage of the year. We’ve done three sessions with her so far and she nails it every time!

Laura - Cambridge

An utterly stunning experience from start to finish! I have to confess to not being a fan of the camera, but instantly Louisa made the day fun, relaxed and we all forgot that we were being photographed!! Louisa was truly brilliant with the children……they had an absolute ball, both were hanging on her every word!!! Louisa’s eye for natural settings and her use of colours and scenes really is outstanding. It was a beautifully hard to choose from the collection we were sent, but going for a package of prints and the whole collection on a USB stick will allow us to always have each and every moment to hand! I can not recommend Louisa enough. Inspirational photographer, truly recommend.
