Thanks for visiting!  I’m Alex, a commerical and family photographer based in Ardingly, near Haywards Heath in West Sussex.

My photography style is natural & relaxed and often incorporates my love for the outdoors.  Each photoshoot is created uniquely around your own family or business – I’ll be guiding you all the way and I promise we’ll have fun as we go!

As well as being an established children’s and family photographer (I’ve been running my business over 10 years!) I offer a wide range of commercial photography – personal branding and professional headshots for both adults and children as well as event photography and school prospectus photography.  I’ve rently started running photography courses which are a hit with children too!



Family photography is all about having fun and I feel privaledged to have the best job in the world – creating gorgoeus images which will be treasured for generations to come.

The majority of my family photo shoots take place at your family home but I’ve got plenty of alternative locations up my sleeve if you’d prefer.

High quality, creative commercial photography will bring your business to life and elevate your branding in a way nothing else can. I have worked with all types of businesses and brands both big and small photographing professional headshots, portraits, personal branding, food photography, products and interiors.

Together we’ll create images that will give you the confidence to show your business off to it’s full potential.

Photography Courses

My Sussex based photography courses are hugely popular with children especially.  Whether you are new to photography or looking to improve your existing skills I have the photography course for you. Bespoke one-to-one sessions can be arranged with discounts for larger groups.  My workshops are held in various locations around Sussex including Borde Hill Garden, near Haywards Heath and Tilgate Park in Crawley.

Alex is so thoughtful in everything she does with an impressive eye for detail creatively and technically. From the day of the shoot itself where we were made to feel so at ease, to her beautifully presented personalised online viewing portal, the follow-up consultation with carefully considered advice, skilful technical editing work behind the scenes, and of course, Alex’s expert oversight of the final production process. A truly premium end-to-end experience. I’d highly recommend Alex for family photography in Sussex!
