Family Sessions

I photograph future parents, babies and families in London, UK. I offer two types of photo-shoots. “Bump & Baby” and my signature session “Family Life”

Family life is full of ups and down, and my photography aims to capture the beauty of all those moments. Even if you might sometimes wish it was, family life isn’t all about smiles and cuddles. There’s much more to it than that, and there’s nothing wrong with embracing that.

Family Life | up to 6-hour session.

I will follow your family during your everyday routines and capture candid moments. I use a documentary approach to photograph honest moments of interaction between family members. These photos don’t involve poses or smiling for the camera; they’re all about capturing what’s real and true to your family. Don’t worry, we will dedicate some time for formal family portraits.

Those first few weeks with your baby are precious and it’s only natural that you would want to document and record them in a special way. Children grow up fast, and having beautiful photographs that show how life is for your family at this time will mean a lot when you look back in the future.

Bump and Baby | up to 2-hour session

This is a shorter and relaxed session where I will photograph a mix of directed and candid moments. This is perfect for soon to be parents, or for capturing the first days of your new-born baby, in your hospital room or in the comfort of your home.


Location

I really enjoy photographing families in their home, especially if they have young children as these are often some of the most compelling and sentimental moments to look back on, but your session can be done on-location. You know your family best. Choosing a place in London that has meaning to you and your family will prompt natural, organic moments to unfold.

Out & About | Outdoor photography

As a photographer and a Mum, I absolutely love the vibrancy and energy of London’s playground - they are often a great place to capture the genuine interactions, excitement, and joyfulness of a lively toddler.

Rest & Relax | Indoor photography

Home is where the heart is, and that’s why in-home sessions are so good at capturing real and authentic family moments. Interactions, whether positive or trying can make wonderful photographs that capture a certain truthfulness and honesty. Those daily routines carry more significance than you imagine and my photographs of your family can reveal that to you.

Hi! I am Stella


I’m a French photographer currently living in North West London with my partner and our two little boys. I’m passionate about documentary family photography and catching those little real-life moments that can be so poignant and important to families.

When I photograph my boys, I try to capture those everyday things in an honest way. That means the nice and cute things like the hugs and the kisses, but also the real-life hardship of motherhood and parenting in general. That’s why I won’t simply ask you to look at the lens and smile when I take photographs for your family. Instead, I’ll make you feel comfortable so that you’re able to be you and my images will reflect that.

Whether you’re young and in love, preparing for your first-born, chasing down a spirited toddler, or merely want to capture the magic of a major milestone, I would love to record and hold those memories for you.
