I’m taking a break from photographing families for 2024 so please get in touch with any of the other photographers on this page, they will be delighted to hear from you.

All the best,  JoJo x

Melissa Grey Peters (LONDON)

I’m Melissa – travel addicted mum of two and an award-winning maternity, family and newborn photographer in North London. I believe that your family is uniquely yours, and your family photos should be too. You know that feeling you get when you find something for your home and immediately love everything about it? How it looks, how it makes you feel, how you know exactly where it’s going to go? That’s how I want you to feel about your family photos.

But I also want you to look at the photos and see the family you love, as the people they are. I want you to look…what’s the word? Normal. Like you, just on a really, really good day! So instead of costumes from a client wardrobe, we’ll choose clothes together that’ll harmonise beautifully with the styling of your home. I’ll guide you towards the best light and framing, but I want the moments themselves to be real. Moments of closeness and affection, small gestures of kindness, a running family joke, kisses, cuddles. Small, simple moments that will mean the world to you in years to come. I want you to love the way your photos look on your walls. But above all, I want you to resonate with the connection that fills them.

Pixzara Photography (SURREY)

I’m Cherry, your friendly and talented Surrey family photographer, and I’m here to make your family’s story come alive in frames that will stand the test of time. As a parent myself, I understand the significance of keeping those heartfelt connections shared within a family. Family life can get so busy that time flies quickly and before we know it, new life chapters begin. Every smile, giggle, every tender hug deserves to be celebrated and captured in photographs. So if you’re in Guildford, Woking, Aldershot, Farnham or within Surrey and have been looking to get some beautiful family photos, let’s talk!

Enjoy a relaxed outdoor photoshoot with your family and leave the rest of the work to me. My style is joyful, natural and colourful. From the first toothless grin to the momentous milestones, I’ll be there to document your family’s journey through life. Whether you’re welcoming a new member into the family or simply want to capture your children’s growing personalities, let’s photograph the magic of each passing moment.

Rachel Jane Photo (WILTSHIRE)


I’m a family photographer based in Swindon, working with families in Wiltshire, The Cotswolds and Gloucestershire.
My warm, soulful and emotive style of photography is popular with families seeking to document truthful memories. I grew up around horses & spent care-free days and nights camping and caravanning. I ventured across southern America with a group of people I’d never met before when I was just 20 years old and these days I still love nothing more than being outside in nature.
You can probably tell from my portfolio that I draw inspiration from outdoor experiences. You’ll always find me chasing the last of the golden evening light in fields with parents and their children on their own little adventure!
I offer both outdoor and at home family sessions. During Spring and Summer I love to take advantage of the light evenings and beautiful sunsets. Shooting in golden hour light is my thing but if you’re early birds you may prefer a sunrise session instead where the light is equally as gorgeous.

Moira Lizzie Photography (HAMPSHIRE & SURREY)


Hi, I’m Moira and over the past 10 years I’ve loved photographing the unique connection of families across Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex.

From toddlers to teens and everything which comes in-between my goal is always to create natural, genuine images of families simply being themselves. My approach is engaging and relaxed resulting in timeless images which reflect the heart and soul of your family. 

Living on the South Coast in Hampshire I’m very fortunate to have both coastal and countryside scenery on my doorstep and often venture out with my family and camera in tow.  I can recommend some amazing locations but I’m always excited to discover somewhere new, near or far. I’d be honoured to share somewhere special with you.

Whichever stage your family is at, whatever moment you’re seeking to preserve, time goes by so fast – I’d be privileged to capture those nostalgic moments for prosterity with visual memories that raise a smile every time you walk past them.

I offer family, newborn and maternity photography around Brighton and Sussex – as well as weddings and other shoots that fit my vibe – all shot with love!

CHLOE BARNETT PHOTOGRAPHY (London, M25 borders, Surrey)

Can I just say, the female body is incredible! The fact we are able to grow another life inside of us, still blows my mind! The journey into motherhood is unlike any other, with so much newness and change.  

Let me help you preserve the memories of those special early days.

My maternity photography sessions focus on celebrating you and the precious new life you’ve created. It’s rare in life that we take a moment just for ourselves and my photography sessions are really all about that. I create a photography experience where you are encouraged to just be yourself. To help you relax into the session I tailor it for you and incorporate things that make you feel relaxed and centred. Whether that’s listening to your favourite music, meditation, walking through nature, or just having a good old chat. 

My newborn sessions centre around your new bubba. We go at their pace, I leave lots of time for nursing, cuddles and nappy changes. You can have your session at home or outside, whichever suits your new family best. Giving you photographs that capture the beauty and simplicity of those early blurry days.

As a mother of two, I know photographs are one of the most precious gifts we can give ourselves and more importantly hand down to our children. Children grow and change, memories become hazy and details dissolve. I’d love to help you capture the love shared between you and your baby and give you lasting photographs, that you will revisit for years to come.

My style is natural and unposed, I don’t use props, costumes or bean bags. I simply want to capture your new family truthfully and give you something you’ll cherish forever.
