Scroll-stopping Baby, Family & Business Portraiture and editorial Wedding Photography for style-conscious East Londoners

“Whether you're booking a photographer for your wedding, newborn, family photoshoot, or business portraiture, you may have similar concerns.

I totally get it – you need your photographer to be both creative and professional, and even more importantly a calm and friendly person who'll do everything possible to help you look your best and feel confident and relaxed in front of the camera. That's me.”


Hey, I'm Nicola

OMG, I recently turned 50. How did that happen?

But if curling up on the sofa with my tabby cat, clutching a rhubarb G&T and watching a psychological thriller on TV is the new me, I'm happy.

As you've gathered, I'm a photographer. I'm also a mum of two teenage girls (yeah, I know, right – it's like living with ravenous, nocturnal magpies). So please be assured, if booking me for a family shoot, or a wedding with tots and teens darting this way and that, I've been to Motherland. Not just watched it on telly.

Indeed, I recently reflected on the similarities between toddler and teen. Both have bedroom floors strewn with obstacles that impede the parent desperately trying to gather laundry and uneaten scraps. Both are also ruled by powerful emotions, swinging from laughter to tears in a second. And that's all before bedtime.

Are you still with me? Luckily, I have a calm, friendly manner and the patience of a saint (yeah, right, Mum!). Which hopefully comes in useful when photographing tricky babies, teens . . . and sometimes the "grown-ups".

Anyway, I cannot wait to meet you and hear your life story (always one of the best bits of my job). So do please do get in touch, even if not yet ready to book, and we can chat photography, branding, parenting – and the latest things right or wrong with the world.

“We had a great experience with Nicola. I originally contacted Nicola for a pregnancy photoshoot. I ended up delivering early the day we were suppose to have the shoot! Nicola was incredibly responsive and flexible and we rebooked my deposit into a 'Newborn at Home' shoot. The newborn shoot far exceeded my expectations. Nicola was great about recommending positions and outfits and also calming the baby. We're so happy with the images we captured - would highly recommend!””
