  • Baby Mia Photographed at Home

    For me, photographing previous clients is such a lovely experience. I am fortunate enough to have some of the most loveliest clients and Danny & Louise are no exception to that. I first photographed them for their wedding at Le Talbooth, Essex in September 2014 and was delighted to capture their newborn baby Mia in July 2016, and then again in ...

  • Family Portrait Photographer on Mersea Island

    Being a family portrait photographer is an honour especially when I get to work with great couples like Samantha and Paul. This was the fourth time I have photographed them! The first was their pre wedding shoot, the second their wedding day and the third time was when Grace was a baby. It was so lovely to catch up with them again and meet the newe...

About Jasmine

London and Essex based photographer, specialising in relaxed family photography and portraiture in homes up and down the UK. Working predominantly with children, I capture natural childhood moments and document your little ones as they grow up — so you can gift them their memories, when they’re older.

Picture this

After a three-day labour and emergency C-section - I hope I’ll be forgiven for not being able to capture the initial moments after my son was born. I grabbed my camera as soon as I could and have been making up for it ever since. First, documenting Parker’s first few hours in the hospital… then his first few days… and then every moment I possibly could thereafter. In fact, I’ve had no less than five professional shoots taken of him in his first year. Memory is a powerful thing, but nowhere near as powerful as a photograph. Things fade from our minds, no matter how precious they are. Even after just one year, if it wasn’t for my photographs - I would have forgotten just how vulnerable he was. How helpless he was. Just how wrinkly he actually looked the day he was born. I would have forgotten how tiny his hands looked in mine - or how he styled his rockstar mohawk, before it suddenly abandoned us… and became regular flat hair. I don't want to forget anything. And I’m sure you don’t, either.

Capture it

I specialise in capturing the moments that matter. I’ve been photographing families for over 10 years, but following the birth of my son, have a completely new perspective on what I want to offer my clients. Before becoming a Mum, I always preferred the ‘perfect shot’ - posed photographs with babies delicately placed in baskets, children smelling flowers in bluebell fields etc. As a parent? I quickly realised that the imperfections mattered more than I knew, and what I used to consider ‘imperfect’ shots of my son soon became my favourite photographs. They captured the real situation - the real moment - and showed Parker exactly how he was. Today, I strive to capture these raw, relaxed photographs for my clients, offering a window into a moment in time - reflecting just how everything truly was. My ‘real’ photographs of Parker become more valuable to me as time goes on. When he becomes an adult himself, they’ll become his gift - all of his childhood memories, captured forever, in countless albums, endless frames and prints on the wall… so he can go back there, whenever he likes.

Create a window to their past

I want to gift your children the same thing: their memories. The sofas they jumped on, the forts they built - the kitchen tops they sat on, the cupboards they hid in… the pets they loved. As time goes on, I want to capture them grow. Their first uniform, their first bike, the measurement marks on the door frame. I want to photograph their journey, year after year - and tell their story, the way they live it, in the homes they grow up in.

How I work

I work unobtrusively in homes and gardens across the UK, building a portfolio of images of your child in their favourite spaces, that they can then treasure forever. Producing luxury relaxed family photography, I work with the natural light and decor of your home, snapping the natural moments as they happen. It’s all about getting to know you and your child, capturing a true-to-life essence in all my photography.
