Photographing in and around Hemel Hempstead
I work with families all throughout Hemel Hempstead including Boxmoor, Chaulden, Leverstock Green, Bourne End, Bovingdon, HP1, HP2, HP3 & HP4. Below are my favourite locations to photograph families of all ages.
From experience I would recommend your photo shoot starts in your home for an hour and then we head outside. This gives you the best variety of images and means that we really get to tell the story of your family. To see recent examples of full family photo shoots you can visit my blog here Hemel Hempstead Photographer
I have worked at Boxmoor for over 4 years and know the area inside out. It offers immense variety from fields, pathways, and stunning woodland. It is also where I run my Beginners Photography Courses for parents who have DSLR’s. It is especially stunning as we start to head into Spring & Summer.

Session fee & Pricing
I like to keep my pricing as transparent as possible so I work by charging a session fee to cover my time. My midweek sessions are charged at £50 and weekends, bank holidays & school holidays are £75. This covers your 1-2 hour photo shoot, editing and an online gallery to view your images. Once you have viewed the images, you can then go on to purchase digital files, with matching professional laboratory prints, from £199. For more details click below.

Beginners Photography Courses in Hemel Hempstead
I also run a very popular Beginners photography Course. I teach Mums and Dads with bridge or DSLR cameras how to get out of auto mode and take more control in a day. My course covers the technical workings of the camera, followed by very inspiriting section on light. We then look at how composition can make your images look more professional and finally how to get great expression from your children without saying cheese.
I really enjoy teaching the course and seeing my students images after the day. If you would like to see more details, and see some of the images they have taken after the course, then just visit here.
Supporting local Hemel Hempstead businesses
One of the other arms of my business is Commercial photography and working with other local entrepreneurs. Below are some of the local companies that I have come across that I would recommend not just as a photographer, but also as a Mum of 2.
Lime Grove, Childbase Nursery
I work with the Oustanding Childbase Nursery group, supporting them with photography for marketing and press activity, but also for photoshoots for parents. Lime Grove received a substantial investment in last year and has the most wonderful outdoor play area and facilities. I could not recommend this nursery more, from the nursery itself, to the team that works there.
Khana Cookery Classes
I am a big fan of Indian food and had been wanting to learn how to cook a great curry for years. A friend reccommeded Khana Cookery Classes and I was so impressed with this course! Sima who runs Khana can also run the courses from your home and you get an Indian Banquet included at the end. I am such a fan that I now host these nights in my home and am slowly converting all my friends to home made curry. For more details visit the Khana page here
Cakes stories by Lauren
Lauren runs a very successful Cupcake business and cupcake parties. Betsy Buttercream visits your home and runs a party where the children decorate chef quality aprons, makes cakes and generally entertains the kids. The children leave with their cakes, hats and aprons and your kitchen is left clean afterwards, what is not to love?! My daughter had Betsy Buttercream visit for her 5th birthday and she had a brilliant time. See here for more details
Hemel Old Town Sunday Market
I was so pleased to see the return of the Old Town Sunday Market which runs once a month. The market sells authentic local produce and has specialist stalls including food, drink, vintage furniture and bonsai trees. To keep up to date with when the market is on just like their Facebook page here
Hemel Hempstead Gazette
The local papers have always been a great supporter of my work and have reported on my Awards and Competition wins over the last few years.
