Family portrait in Caterham

"Myself and my boys had a wonderful early evening shoot with Charmaine out in the bluebell woods. She was relaxed and fun to be with and we all felt at ease. When the images arrived we all loved them! I highly recommend Charmaine for some family photos, we’ll treasure ours".

Thank you for visiting my website.  As you are viewing my website, this means you are in the process of organising photography to display around your home.  

I am a Photographer providing Portraits, Headshots, Family Portraits and Maternity/Newborn photography services, based in the South Croydon area.  I cover London and as I love driving up and down the motorway, no county is too far!

I currently provide photography in two ways: Indoor Photography where I visit your home and do studio type photography using different backdrops or natural light and, outside photography at beautiful locations that either myself or you will choose that is suitable to your requirements.

As photographers know, it isn't the camera that takes great images, it's your skill, your ability to trick the camera into seeing what you do: relaxing your client to feel comfortable in front of it.  To ensure you are relaxed, there will be a consultation to discuss your needs; processes of the shoot, relaxing in front of the camera and most importantly, what you want your look to be.....the end result.

As a mobile professional photographer, I very much enjoy driving around the country to take photographs of people and making them happy.  I will always bring love, life, creativity and commitment to my clients, so that when they look at the images I have taken of them, their response is "that's me"! My brand is "I can, I will, I mustI!

Autumn Outdoor Family Mini Sessions
18th October to 14th November

Family portrait in Caterham Viewpoint.

Autumn Mini-Sessions are coming up and what better way to create memories of your children playing, family group photography in great surroundings.

My sessions will take place at Beddington Park, SM6 7BY.  This is a beautiful park with great little spots, rivers and ponds.  If you prefer a different location that is also great too.

Family photography is so much fun as you get to see the raw emotion in everyone involved. You will see the love and joy you have for one another. The children get to run around freely and have a whale of a time. I always say "Children do not stay young for long, but their smile lasts forever"!

Book your session now.

Head to my Family Info and Prices page for more details.

As a photographer, I love the mystery that black and white images give. When viewing black and whites, everyone I speak to, wants to look deeper into the image, know more about the subject and query the emotion behind it. I also like the vintage look it gives.


When viewing colour images, your eyes tend to draw more to the colours and contrasts, rather than who you have photographed. This isn't a bad thing, but its an edge, I feel that black and white images have over colour.
