Family photographer in West Sussex

Family Photographer in West Sussex for the real, natural & full of feelings families

I am a Family Photographer in West Sussex, focusing on the connections within your family. It is an experience where we work together to tell the most beautiful story: Your story, moments that will make you smile and bring memories for years to come.

Being a West Sussex Family Photographer allows me to capture the quality time you spend together, truly bonding with each other: playing together, running free, hugging, forehead kisses, snuggles, laugh etc… The seemingly insignificant and ordinary moments are the most meaningful.

I will guide you through the family photography session but I will also stand back and allow everyone to show their personality. There is also time for a few typical look-into-the-camera photographs, that are also an important part of your memories.

Children grow up fast and we are all changing so much, that these are the moments you want to preserve.

"The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them."

Paul Coelho

“She is incredibly talented, a pleasure to work with and has given us images that warm our hearts whenever we look at them. Thank you so much Vanessa!”

family photographer in west sussex: Your precious moments into forever memories

Investing in a family photographer is a way to freeze time on those moments so you can cherish them forever.

Family photography sessions are not about smiling to the camera but instead capturing the love that connects your family.

Hiring a Family photographer means that you can take part on your family photos and your children will later on enjoy to see how happy you were all together.

Choosing a family photographer can be a difficult decision but I am here to support and guide you. All I want is your photos to be as special as you do.

We live in a digital world and very often we forget to print our photos. For that reason I am offering packages that can include prints or a photo album, you choose! Your images become more meaningful when you can hold them in your hands. These beautiful pieces of art telling your story will pass down generations and keep your memories alive.

My pricing comes with all my dedication, love and time. Every session and each photo is special and I do my utmost to provide you with genuine and heartfelt moments that mean everything to you.

It depends, in peak season my turnaround time can be up to 8 – 12 weeks but I always strive to deliver sooner.

You should get some images of both. I normally take this decision during editing. Some photographs suit colour more and others look amazing in black-and-white.

I absolutely believe in promoting body confidence and self love. However, I do appreciate that you want to look your best for your photographs. I can remove blemishes which aren’t permanent, for example, acne, bruises, skin rashes etc. But, if you are specifically concerned about something then please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate during posing.
Yes. I have insurance for public liability, professional indemnity and an equipment cover.

In case if something happens to me or if I’m really ill and can’t make it to your session, I will do my utmost to reschedule it as soon as possible.
