Commercial Photography & Headshots
Photograph your remarkable story
Natural, stylish & imaginative photography for your family or your work
Hello and Welcome
Hi, I’m Jilly. I’m a family and commercial photographer based in London who loves to capture colourful stories in both personal and professional genres. My work is light, stylish and imaginative and a high level of professionalism, creativity and customer care are at the core of my business values.
At the very heart of my family photography is a desire to find and capture emotions and connections in natural light, creating memorable visual stories that families can treasure.
My commercial photography offers the opportunity to work creatively with a business to capture a set of images that illuminate their brand and people in it.
There is a special place in my heart for families and this beautiful genre of work was the very first stop on my photography journey. I have personally experienced all the stages from pregnancy to motherhood and my girls are teenagers now so I know how quickly the time flies. These incredible moments in time are fleeting and it is always an honour to connect with a family along their journey and document these precious times. I love photographing in natural light and try to create something authentic and emotive. My style is fresh, simplistic and dreamy and I engage with my family making them feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible while photographing the true essence of who they are and what they feel. I am based near Richmond and I photograph in London and also the surrounding countryside.
Impactful photography for your business is critical. Creating colourful stories about who you are and what you represent is something that I’m passionate about….. My style is natural and emotive with light and bright imagery particularly focused on brands involved in family and motherhood.
It’s a joy to work with young, growing brands that demand beautiful and creative photography to tell their stories and I love meeting the teams involved and being a small part of their story. I bring a professional, warm and flexible approach and offer a fresh, artistic eye to your business supporting you through the creative process. My work will include images for websites, marketing and social media and your team’s headshots.
I am used to working to tight deadlines and can be flexible to adjust to your ever changing business needs. Cost is always important and I have a variety of flexible charges to offer to support you.
HEADSHOTS & PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Having a professional headshot is generally not on the top of our list. Possibly because most of us feel uncomfortable with a lens pointing at us but also because its easy to take one on the phone. But as words on a CV or company promotional literature are important, a striking and engaging image to promote yourself is critical too. They may also be used for social media to enhance your online profile. If you are running a business you may also want to explore taking a portfolio of creative images giving you a strong personal brand identity. Playing with different locations and clothing options, I use my artistic eye to illuminate you and your brand and create a little sparkle.
