About Sophie

I live in East Molesey Surrey with my husband and two young children.  I’ve been photographing families and children for over 8 years now and absolutely love my job, it gives me so much pleasure being able to give people such treasured moments to cherish.

I like to keep my style really relaxed, fun and natural. I find everyone feels far more comfortable being photographed this way and children especially can just be themselves and enjoy the session, which usually results in some beautiful natural smiles rather than those forced cheesy ones we all don’t want!

Like anyone, I love to look back through photos because they fill me with so much happiness and always make me smile. I love how they can transform you back to a moment in time and they are just so precious to have for so many reasons and that is why I do what I do!

You may have noticed I have some neonatal photos on my website, there is a little story behind that. My son was born prematurely in January 2017 at just 28 weeks. My husband and I were thrown immediately into the world of neonatal care, something we knew very little about at the time, but which has changed all our lives forever.

The team at Kingston Hospital and The Born Too Soon Charity were incredible during what was a very challenging and overwhelming time. Having spent ten weeks there, after we finally arrived home three weeks before what should have been our due date – I knew I wanted to give something back.

After speaking to a few people within Kingston Hospital, we created the idea of offering a photoshoot to families on the unit, to give them the chance to have some precious family photos taken together whilst they are there. I feel honoured to be Kingston Hospital’s affiliated neonatal photographer.

Due to Covid I have had to stop going in to photograph on the unit for the time being however I am still offering families who have been on the unit a special welcome home photoshoot for when they return home.

Helping people to relive their most treasured moments through my photography fills me with so much joy, and my passion for expressing life through a lens is what inspires me to continue to produce work that goes above and beyond the ordinary.

I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

One of the many beautiful photographs taken on my wedding day back in December 2015. I will treasure these photographs forever, they make me smile and fill me with happiness every time I look through them.

This is why I love what I do. I want to be the one that make's people feel that way and allow them to relive precious memories at just one glance of a photograph.

Lets go and make some memories...

“Sophie did some photographs of my newborn and toddler. Getting them both to do what we wanted them to do was a challenge but Sophie was very patient and calm with my girls. This shows in the end product as the photos we got were amazing and take pride of place on our wall. We will not hesitate to use Sophie again.”

Kate and Chris

“From the moment we first met Sophie when we sat down to discuss the kind of photos we wanted, we knew that we had been lucky enough to have found a very talented photographer. Everything about the way that the shoot went was very smooth, professional and relaxing. Sophie allowed us to just enjoy spending time together as a family, and then she managed to find the best bits of that time spent, and has turned them in to some beautiful pictures that we will treasure forever. An incredibly talented photographer who came across as polite, helpful, friendly, experienced and professional. We would highly recommend Sophie for anyone looking to book a photographer for any occasion, highly recommended! We will be booking her up again for future photo shoots!”

Sam, Jason and Amelia Trinkwon

“Sophie was fantastic and we were so thankful for her photos of baby Harrison in his first week. The style of the photos was exactly as we wanted and we were grateful for her suggestions too. Her attention to detail was precise and as a former nanny, we even got some tips from her experiences. It was a great service from first phone call to the sending of photos and we still look at them every day. We have so many photos its hard to choose a favourite!”

Gill and Chris

From the moment we asked Sophie to do an engagement shoot for us we knew the images would be really special. Our photos were taken in the village where we live which gave it that extra special feel. The shoot was fun & relaxed which really worked for us. Sophie made use of the surroundings & went to extra lengths to get that ‘perfect shot’. It captured a really happy time for us & we couldn’t be easier happier with the end result. We used our favourite photo for the save the dates for our wedding.  It is clear to see how much love Sophie has for photography. She is a true professional & a natural at what she does. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Sarah & Adam

“Sophie photographed our wedding in August 2014 and prior to this took some photos of our engagement and she captured both perfectly. The memories we have from our photos tell the magical story of our wedding day from beginning to end. We could not have asked for anything more, they really are just perfect in every way. Sophie is a very talented and professional photographer and one that we can highly recommend to anyone looking for someone to capture those special occasions. Thank you so much Sophie, from both of us, I hope that we will have you to capture more of our special moments in the future.”

Rach and Phil

“I had some photos taken by Sophie when I was very heavily pregnant. At a time when I was feeling uncomfortable and vulnerable, I wasn’t brimming with confidence but Sophie has such a way about her that made me feel at ease immediately. We actually ended up having quite a giggle and I plucked up the courage to have some rather daring photos that I’d only dreamt of. Sophie is extremely professional, calming and produced great photos. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires some special photos”

Katherine Crick

“I would like to say how pleased we were with the newborn photoshoot that we had taken by Sophie. Our baby girl Lexie was 8 days old and if I’m being honest my husband and I were very apprehensive about how the shoot was going to go, as after all she was only a few days old and we were all still finding our feet!! Sophie came in with loads of props set up the room and waited patiently for me to feed Lexie. Once she was all fed we started the shoot but Lexie had other ideas and decided that now was the time to be very alert and not play ball! Sophie was very patient throughout the whole day and we never felt pressured to hurry up with feeding or getting her to sleep. She was very good at handling Lexie and I trusted her completely. Then the photos were sent to us a few days later we were gobsmacked – they were amazing and perfectly captured our baby all scrunched up and gorgeous! They will be photos that we will treasure forever… and I’m sure the naked ones will be used to embarrass Lexie when she is 18!! Thanks again Sophie you are a star!”

Jo and Dean

“We had Sophie come to our house to take some pics of our gorgeous new baby girl and her beautiful sister! Sophie was just amazing she was so professional she took pictures of the girls and us we wouldn’t have thought of taking, and they were just so lovely! She was also so patient with our little Mia who kept wanting to feed not sleep etc. (you would never know from pictures).

Couldn’t recommend Sophie more! We shall definitely be getting her back again to capture our beautiful girls again as they grow!”

Sara

“Sophie was extremely patient and kind with our 4-year-old daughter and our 1-week old newborn. She spent her time building up a relationship with the children to capture the most beautiful pictures that we could have asked for. Sophie is very professional and excellent at her job. Can’t wait to have her do more family pictures soon when our youngest is walking. Thanks again Sophie.”
