Hello and welcome to Laughter & Light Photography


Hi! I’m Michelle, a creative portrait photographer who loves capturing families doing what they do best…being themselves!


Our promise….

All children and family portrait sessions are booked with enough time for feeding and tantrums, we will never rush your photography sitting.

We only offer upfront and honest pricing, no hidden charges or holding back photos.

Your families photos will be taken in a calm atmosphere where your family can relax and be themselves, leading to better photos!

We will aim to help you save money and not pressure you to buy in any way. 

My story began eight years ago when I took my own young children to be photographed by at popular, large chain studio. We went with the expectation that capturing this magical moment in our families history would be a fun and rewarding experience. However, after being rushed through our session in a noisy, hectic environment (which lead to many tears from my youngest daughter) we were feeling far from special and a little disheveled. 

We had arrived with a set budget which seemed realistic when compared with the packages being advertised, but now as we talked to the stressed photographer (who was eager to get rid of us in order to deal with the next session) we realized that these advertised prices had just been a way to lure us in. After adding on the hidden costs our original budget now would only stretch to a few unframed photos. As a family of five we knew a few prints just weren’t going to realistically portray this moment in our families history, so we asked if we could buy what we could afford today and return next week to purchase some more, but we were told if we didn’t buy them now, they would be deleted. All the while being pressured and rushed by the workers at the studio we panicked and  bought all the photos on our credit card, regretting our decision almost as soon as we left the studio. 

Looking at the substandard photos we received a few weeks after our session at the large chain studio I began think. There had to be a better way. I decided to use my background in fine art and photography alongside my experience as a mother to create a family portrait service that would offer the type of portrait photography I myself as a mum would appreciate, one that feels fun and is honest from start to finish.   

To book your family portrait session please get in touch with  me by calling on 07800923555 or by using the contact form in the menu above. I can’t wait to hear from you!
