– 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 concept to delivery, I aim to provide a full-service newborn and family photography experience that’s easy, enjoyable and, most importantly, completely unique to you.

WHAT’S IN A PICTURE?

Your family photos deserve to be more than just pretty pictures. They should be time capsules. They should burst with emotion and tell the story of who you are and what you love.

My mission, as your family photographer, is to reveal the true you. To leave cliches and forced smiles behind. To listen carefully and watch patiently. To get to know you and your family in a completely pressure-free way – before, during and after our photo shoot. I want to help you 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.”

Louisa, Fleet

“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!
