If you’re looking for a well-loved and trusted newborn, baby and family portrait photographer in East London, you’ve come to the right place...

For portraits that let you memorise this moment in time forever; that you cannot wait to hang up; that you cannot stop looking at; that make your heart skip with joy at every glance.


I pride myself not only on being technically skilled at creating beautiful portraits, but also, and perhaps more importantly, on being able to engage, genuinely and whole-heartedly with my families. I don’t call you my clients, because once we’ve made a personal connection, you’re no longer just my clients. It is these true and genuine connections we make when we are planning your session and when we meet, that enable me to capture your real emotions and love for each other; those moments that remind us why the people you are at your photoshoot with, are the most important, precious beings in your life. Together we carve out a moment in time for your family to reconnect and fall in love all over again.

And as if you needed the proof of the incredible love you have for each other; you can go home with a stunning piece of wall art, or an album to showcase what your family means to you (beyond a Facebook post or an Insta story).

I've been passionate about photography for over 20 years, initially learning how to capture and develop images using film SLR cameras and the black and white darkroom. These days I use a Canon 5D Mark 4 & Mark 3 (backup) plus a range of Canon L-series portrait lenses; with my digital “darkrooms” of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom running on my trusty Mac.

Rocking Horse Photography was born 5 years ago, out of a combination of my love for photography and my new view on life, after becoming a parent myself.

I have created maternity, newborn, baby and family portraits in the studio, outdoors or at home, for hundreds upon hundreds of local East London families, and have even won a few photography awards for some of them.

I am very proud to have been chosen by each of my families. I know there are plenty of photographers out there, and certainly I am not the cheapest, but I do know and am so often told that the quality of my photography, the finish of my products and level service I provide is amongst the best. I pride myself on exceptional service, partnering with the finest professional-only print labs and framers of the country, and my continuous investment in training and equipment, to ensure I am always creating the most stunning images I can, in a fun and relaxed environment. But don’t just take my word for it - scroll down to see what others are saying (you can also read more of my 5* reviews on Facebook and Google).

During the week I usually photograph pregnancy, newborns or babies & families in my East London studio, or attend lifestyle and outdoors sessions with local families. I also offer cakesmash sessions for first birthdays from the comfort of my studio. If you would like to book any of these, then please get in touch to arrange a mutually convenient date and find out more. I also usually offer one weekend date a month for scheduled outdoors photoshoots in Victoria Park, and one weekend date a month for scheduled sessions in my purpose-built studio in East London (10 mins from Canary Wharf and Stratford). These weekends dates tend to work particularly well for parents who are working on week days but they book up fast. Every few months I also capture photos of your little ones at local events such as NCT Cheeky Monkeys' Parties and offer specials like camera classes for Fathers’ Day.

Do you know what kind of session you would like already?

If not, have a look through the photoshoot session types. What do you like the look of, and what would suit the decor of your home (for when the photos are hung up)? Would you like my guidance on the different session types & styles? Ping me a note or give me a call and we can talk it through.
