I grew up with a father who was obsessed with taking photographs and more specifically our family photographs.
Everywhere we went he would pull out his film camera and get us to stand together against some backdrop or other and smile sweetly at the camera.
He would surprise my brother, sister and me at Christmas, with photobooks he had spent hours creating and we would pore over them, utterly absorbed, laughing as we remembered the moments he had captured.
I remember thinking, ‘I wish there was someone there to take photographs of him, so he could be in them too but of course, he was mostly behind the lens.
This is why I became a photographer. I wanted to capture those priceless memories for other children but with all the family members included - with no one missing.
As time passes and people age the value of those images become more and more invaluable.
In the days that my father took photographs, there weren’t digital images that were stored forever on computers, or software you could produce photo albums with; Images had to be printed and stored with love in family albums.
There is something so special about holding photographs of family members in your hand, which is why my packages all come with stunning luxury prints.
I hate the idea of images being stored for years on hard drives or computers, getting lost and never making their way to print or frames.
I therefore specialise in large, ready to framed wall galleries, which you can hang with pride to complete the style of your home and I pride myself in producing the most beautifully designed photobooks for you to gift your children at Christmas and Birthdays.
These gifts last a lifetime
My photoshoots are very relaxed. They are all about capturing you and the raw love and connection between your family members. My images are unposed, natural and artistic.
I let kids be kids and photograph just that. You and your kids (even your partner!) will leave the session with me, feeling like you had just had a wonderful, fun trip out with the family- I was just there to capture those memories for you.
Once booked with me, I will send over a style guide to help you get the best out of your images.
My family photoshoots start at £449 and include ten luxury prints and 20 digital images.
My other packages include wall galleries and luxury photobooks and for peace of mind I will provide you with the digital gallery to complete it.

Victoria!!! I don't even know what to say. These are just utterly dreamy, beyond beautiful.
I've had a very difficult week this week and seeing this gallery is a tonic like no else. Thank-you, Thank-you! ~ Bethany
I feel totally overwhelmed and in love looking at the gorgeous photographs of my family. I am absolutely in love with them. The whole experience was perfect, we felt like we had been on a beautiful morning out, rather than to have our photographs taken.
Victoria took away any stress and was absolutely amazing with my children. I wish we could do it every weekend. I actually can't wait to book Victoria again!! ~Sara
