Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire Family Photographer

Children change so quickly and watching them grow is such a pleasure and creates special memories. I want to capture these moments for you, whist you have fun together. Ultimately, I want my families to have a good time – laughing, playing, running around and being yourselves. You’ll take home some wonderful memories and the photos to prove it!


I am passionate about where I live in the Chiltern Hills and the stunning countryside that surrounds us. I love to share my favourite locations as I take my clients on photography walks in the Ashridge Estate, Wendover Woods, and Coombe Hill. I also love to discover new places so if you have a favourite location as a family that holds special memories please talk with me about your ideas.



‘We had a fab shoot with Tanya! She was utterly brilliant with our children and got some very natural happy photos of them. She was patient, kind, funny and encouraging which very quickly put the children at ease. However it did make choosing our final photos difficult as there was just so many lovely ones to narrow down from. Would 100% recommend to anyone!’

I love meeting families and photographing them having fun together. It’s always an honour to capture a moment in a family’s story, watching them run, laugh and love. The best photos I take are when your family is happy and relaxed, whether that’s in your home, in the garden or out on location, I am happy to work around what suits you best, making for great natural images.


Images will be made available in a private online gallery for digital downloads and ordering prints.

Bespoke Photo Albums

Want to be able to see your photos in a stunning coffee table book, but don’t know where to start? Have you tried to make a book yourself, but just found you don’t have the time? Are you looking for a personalised birthday or anniversary gift?

In a digital world it becomes so easy to lose our photos and forget those special moments. I provide a bespoke service to collate your photos and design a very high quality, but affordable book for you to treasure forever, without the stress of producing it yourself!



We have repeatedly used Tanya to photograph our family. She has a relaxed approach to the photo shoot and is great with the kids, managing to get the best from them each year. We always get a number of brilliant pictures which we love.’



Below are some FAQ, but if you have any further questions before booking, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Where will the photo shoot be?

I have a range of locations I use in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire which I can discuss with you. Location will depend on where you live, the season and time of day we are shooting.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

I will always do my best to reschedule in the event of bad weather, but I tend to go ahead if there is light rain or showers.


Do you give guidance on posing?

I give some prompts on how to pose, but because I focus on lifestyle photography a lot of the images I capture are very playful and relaxed so the kids have a lot of fun playing games and it gets the best out of them. I always want to deliver a wide range of images for you, and children rarely sit still so we have lots of fun running and swinging!


Can you give advice on what to wear?

Depending on the time of year I give advice on what to wear in my ‘what to expect’ guide which you will receive when you book your shoot. For example, bluebells look best with white/grey and pastels, whilst an autumn shoot needs a different, warmer palette. You don’t have to match either, but it helps if family members coordinate.


When will I get my images?

I aim to deliver your online gallery within 2 weeks of your shoot. You will have an online password protected gallery that you can then order your prints from.



We would love to hear from you, and if you do have any questions at all before booking, please do feel free to give me a call on 07816 752 349.
