Commercial children's photographer
CREATING BESPOKE IMAGERY FOR CHILD FOCUSED BRANDS
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN MY
Thank you for visiting. My name is Nina Mace and I am an award-winning Children’s Photographer who also works with a number of select companies as a Commercial Children’s Photographer. With over 10 years professional photography experience and 15 years in Brand and Marketing Management looking after global FMCG and leisure brands, my experience means I am able to take a project from brief to completion ensuring the imagery is on brand and to the client brief.
My work is bright, bold, upbeat and vibrant which fits well with mass-market children’s brands. Current clients include a UK wide private nursery group, independent schools, a digital sharing company and a children’s crafting brand.
Clients have described me as “having a great understanding of what we were looking to achieve and being very positive and flexible on the day of the shoot. Images were delivered ahead of schedule and we would happily recommend Nina for any future commercial projects”
Examples of recent commissions are shown below. If you have an Editorial Photography or Commercial Children’s Photography project that involves a child or children, please email [email protected] to discuss your brief.

Schools throughout the UK
I have worked with numerous schools throughout the South of the UK, helping them to bring their school values to life. These images are most often used in their prospectus, on their websites and for local marketing activity.
A full-day shooting includes the children interacting in class, PE lessons, playtime, reading lounges, and hands-on practical activities such as science.
I can also include images of the school buildings and headshots for staff.
Below are some examples from my most recent shoots and how my photography has been integrated into the school’s website and prospectus.
I have worked to a brief to create both branded lifestyle photography and pack photography for Oglee Poglee a well-loved children’s crafting brand. Images used for the companies website, marketing literature and notonthehightstreet.com
Oglee Poglee includes creative workshops, parties and craft kits Everything at Oglee Poglee focuses on fun and exploration. Having a go is how kids learn, develop and hone their skills. That’s why you won’t find instructions in our Craft Boxes, examples to copy at our workshops or come to any two parties that are the same. The child’s imagination leads the way. It’s Claire’s aim to ensure that Oglee Poglee nurtures this imagination and gives children the tools and freedom to explore their own ideas.
The Secret Stage school is a Camberley based centre for singing, dancing and acting. The classes culminate in an End-of-Term Showing. The classes focus on building confidence and developing skill in Performing segments of West End, Broadway & Big Screen Musicals.
I documented their classes after returning from covid capturing the fun and friendships that the children experience.
I work with the Childbase Partnership group across all their UK nurseries supplying images for their website, marketing collateral and stock photography for wall art in both the nurseries and head office. I also photograph new nursery openings and images for media and press use.
Rated one of the UK’s extraordinary companies by best companies in 2006, the employee-owned child base partnership is also a UK top 100 company to work for, because award-winning training and development programmes support staff in their daily pursuit of excellence. State of the art innovative learning through play programmes in imaginative age-appropriate spaces, both in and out of doors, ensures children of all ages are happy and confident.
I work with Lifecake digital sharing company supplying images for Marketing activity plus blog content for their customers who are passionate about photographing and storing their families images on a simple, easy to use shareable platform. Alongside imagery, I also guest blog on a regular basis with photography tips for families.
Lifecake is time travel for parents. See and share your child’s amazing progress with a fun and private photo and video timeline.

I wanted to thank you for the very valuable mentoring session this morning. That was the first photography discussion since months which let me feel again my lost passion for this art. I am really impressed by your deep and broad knowledge combined with your genuine approach to teaching/coaching. Your advice is always spot on and hands on. You are definitely the most inspiring person I have met along my photography journey. I hope that I will have once the chance to meet you in person and attend one of your workshops in the UK. Until then I will certainly come back for another Skype session.
I choose to book a photography mentoring session with Nina I felt that I needed advice and direction with brand awareness and business support. Her training was much better than expected. I was particularly impressed with how she had taken the time to do appropriate background research before the session. I will recommend her to other professional photographers and have already done so. I know other photographers who would benefit from Nina’s guidance.
I booked a Photography Mentoring session with Nina because of the rave reviews from other photographers on Facebook. I always go back and forth on booking a mentor or a training course. I’m not a beginner in photography, there are always areas for improvement. Especially when it comes to marketing. It’s hard to find group courses that would fit my needs. Since Nina offered 1-2-1 I decided to quit stalling and just book. 1-2-1 was definitely the way to go for me. I haven’t had any other courses on marketing or business planning so am unable to compare. But I can say Nina is very knowledgeable and completely transparent with her strategy and teaching. We live relatively close to each other; I wasn’t sure if that would be a problem for getting help marketing myself. I was very surprised at the level of advice I received. She shared everything with me. Nina’s session wasn’t what I was expecting…. It’s hard to articulate, BUT when I left, I felt great about my business plan and the direction I wanted to take it in. I felt REALLY excited about the new year and new plan. After my first visit, I wanted to put Nina on retainer! I LOVE NINA! She also provided some valuable help with website SEO and driving traffic to my page. Nina has a great personality. I clicked with her right away, which is so important when working in a creative field and hell yes I would recommend her! She kicks ass.
I chose to book a photography mentoring session with Nina because I needed guidance on the next step for my business and sound business and marketing advice. I walked away so happy, buzzing with excitement and Nina answered every question and more that I needed answers for. I found the advice on my brand and how to expand it to reflect me the most useful and would 100% book again. I would recommend Nina because she is so professional, great, chatty, puts you at ease and a perfect mentor and an awesome photographer so you respect her opinion.
Thank you for getting the images to use as quickly as you did and all I can say is WOW! They are exactly what we were hoping for and we cannot wait to get them up onto our website and into the school prospectus.
