autumn family photo session

 – Welcome –

I am a specialist newborn and family photographer based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

I love photographing little people and telling their stories, so that the memory of this magical time in their lives (and yours!) never fades.

The families I photograph are at the centre of all I do. From planning your session to hand-delivering your beautifully presented portraits, you can expect a full-service portrait photography experience that’s easy, enjoyable and completely unique to you.

WHAT’S IN A PICTURE?

I believe that spontaneous portraits are one of the best legacies we can leave our children. They are precious time capsules. They should tell the story of how families come to be, and the many ways that they grow over the years.

As your family photographer, there are some vital steps I must take to tell your story in a real and honest way. To listen carefully and watch patiently. To leave cliches and forced smiles behind.  To get to know you and your family in a completely pressure-free way – before, during and after our photo shoot. This is how, together, we create a true picture heirloom with beauty and meaning.

Whether you love being out and about, or prefer the cosy atmosphere of your home, I will craft a fun, yet intimate photography experience just for you and your children, where you’ll have the time and the space to be yourselves. You can put your full confidence in my talent to translate your connection into timeless images that mean the world.

Some lovely things you said

“From the moment I set eyes on your website, I fell in love with your work. Thank you so much for all our beautiful photos. Your patience and unassuming nature always manage to capture the moment in a natural contemporary way.”

“Cristina has taken family pictures twice for us and next to the exceptional quality of her work she is a beautiful person to be with. She makes everybody feel at ease and this is reflected in her artwork-like pictures!”

Cindy, London

Cristina has a real talent for making adults and children alike feel totally relaxed and then manages to capture that in beautifully composed timeless images. We’re delighted with our family and individual photographs, images to treasure forever – thank you Cristina!
