Welcome to the home of Nina Mace photography, Family, Lifestyle & Children’s photographer of the Year.

My photography sessions are all about having fun and capturing real smiles, giving you a photographic record of your children that you can look back at in years to come. My aim to create modern family images which you will treasure forever. I work by photographing you and your family at home, and then outdoors on location, to create colourful family portraits in a relaxed and natural way.


I am well known for my vibrant and bold visual style and using the colours of the UK as the backdrops for your family portraits.  I am also recognised throughout the UK for offering Child Photography Workshops and Mentoring for both Beginner and Professional Photographers.  I have also just been named as top 3 professional trainers in the UK by the SWPP.  It’s an honour to have been featured in international publications and children’s photography competitions including Vogue and to have been named Top Children’s Photographer of the Year by the Guild of Professional Photographers.

Children's photographer

We could not recommend Nina as a childrens photographer anymore.  Her approach to a family shoot was contemporary and refreshing. The final images are displayed all over our home and we would not hesitate to recommend her to photograph your family.

The James Family, Hemel Hempstead

Nina immediately made our boys feel comfortable and gave them the freedom to move around whilst also expertly guiding them to where she wanted. We love our family photos and are already planning our family photo shoot for next year

Natalie, Hertfordshire

I have invested in family photography every year since our children were born and was so pleased to have found Nina. Our final images are colourful, natural and a real reflection of our family dynamic. I have found the kids photographer I would like to use for always now!

Beginner Photography Courses

I love children’s photography and sharing my knowledge and I have taught hundreds of Mums & Dads how to use their DSLR’s and get out of Auto. Along with the technical teaching, we look at light and composition to start you on the path to taking images that look that little bit more professional.

I offer Beginner Photography Workshops for groups on the weekends, smaller groups in the week and also 1-2-1 sessions for both beginner and intermediate photographers.

I also blog Children’s Photographer tips and ideas. Training starts from £79.

Training for Professional Children's Photographers

Prior to becoming a professional Child Photographer, I worked for 15 years as a Brand & Marketing Manager and as a result I now offer photography training and children’s photography workshops for other up and coming professional family photographers which include shooting outdoors, advanced editing and business & marketing planning. I also offer 1-2-1 Mentoring in 1 hour, half day or full day sessions. xxxxxxx
