• A warm welcome to Nicola Light Family Photography

    I am an award winning professional maternity, baby, children, family and headshot photographer based in Guildford and offer natural, relaxed and FUN family photography in Surrey, South London, Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire and Kent.

    I specialise in capturing bumps, babies, children of all ages and families together!

    Let me show you how we can work together to capture some wonderful memories for you to treasure for a lifetime . . . it’s time to capture your story.

    Please do contact me - I look forward to hearing from you!

So it seems I have still not found the magical solution to stopping time, even after trying a wide array of wands on a brilliant day out at Harry Potter World earlier this month!  So for the time being, we shall all have to be content enjoying every day we do have with our family and friends even if they whizz by so quickly!

The reason I take so many photos of my children (several thousand each year!) is that I like to record the moments I might forget in years to come. It’s the little details that I love, sometimes overlooked. But in years to come will bring me such happiness when they remind me what they were like at that stage of their lives. I love looking at a portrait that brings back not only a visual reference to that moment but brings back the sound of the laughter, the warmth of the sunshine or the smell of the flowers. I certainly felt that when I looked through all the headshot and family photography sessions I had in 2017. They all brought back such happy memories of the fun we had during these photoshoots. That’s the important word, ‘fun’! That really is the essence of my photography sessions. We are having fun, it shines through the pictures, brings out your true personalities, whilst you are having a great time! I am so pleased when people feedback that they didn’t realise it was going to be so much fun! That’s my aim, for your children to enjoy what they like doing best. If they are happy, you are happy and we can relax and enjoy ourselves!

Thank you so much for your support in 2017, it really has meant so much to me! It was an amazing year and I feel very honoured to have captured such special moments for so many families. I have lots of exciting plans for 2018, and look forward to sharing these with you soon!

If you’re reading this, and thinking about a session in 2018, I do hope that these highlights give you a flavour of my style and that you feel I might be the right photographer to capture some memories for you to treasure for a lifetime. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks for reading.

I really enjoyed this family photography shoot with this lovely family from Croydon in Surrey. We had such a fun time messing about in the garden, climbing trees and having running races! This session really sums up the essence of a family shoot with plenty of fun and games, giggles and cuddles and most importantly being directed by the children, letting them tell us what they wanted to do! The family are a great example of following the advice of my what to wear guide! Their colours coordinated so well and really toned in with the autumnal colours.

We had a great time at the viewing sessions. I always like to present a selection of ideas to help the family start to consider how best to display their favourite portraits. You can see some of these ideas below.

After their frames arrived the family said “We wanted to say how delighted we are with the photos! They are absolutely beautiful and the frames are perfect. They came very well packaged, so thank you. We couldn’t be happier with them, they truly are wonderful so thank you.”
My pleasure, have a great Christmas and hope to see you again some time!

I really adore these two girlies and their Mummy too! I was so excited to be asked to photograph my dear friend Amice and her gorgeous girls who I last photographed three years ago. We did the photography shoot in their garden, which was a perfect idea, so personal and familiar to the girls. They loved showing me all their favourite places to play and with the autumn colours providing us with the perfect backdrop, we couldn’t help but have a great time!

You may notice that the girls changed clothes, which is an option for any family shoot. It has the advantage of giving you a new look, which it certainly did when I persuaded the girls to get into the flowerbed amongst the red branches! I knew the colours would work well, the red looks so striking.

Amice was thrilled with her pictures and I can’t wait to deliver her frames, all in time for Christmas!
