Natural, lifestyle photography for your school.

I have worked as a family photographer for 10 years and before that as an experienced brand marketeer so I believe I have a good understanding of how to not only take really good, natural images avoiding the fake smiles / awkwardness / silliness that can often appear when someone gets a camera out but also how to make sure I get a clear understanding of what it is you want to visually communicate to your parents and the wider community, it’s important these images reflect and support your schools ethos and values. I can take natural lifestyle shots but am also happy to work with you to create a set 'shot list' for me to work through on the day, which may included some staged images to make sure I am capturing exactly what you want. I have both public and private liability business insurance plus a current DBS certificate (more detailed checks available if required).

Natural Marketing Images

Lunchtime, Playtime, Children learning (natural & staged shots in class), Sport,  Forrest school, SEND, Extra curricular clubs, Wrap around care, Social responsibility. Allow 15mins PER area you want me to cover with time in-between for moving from class to class / subject to subject. 

Special Needs

Photographing  SEN children regardless of age or needs requires patience and the ability to not overwhelm.  Some kids are more than happy to engage / be photographed (sometimes a little too enthusiastically ;>) others just want to be invisible and my presence as a stranger in their space alone is enough to make them feel uncomfortable.  I've learnt over the years (through work and my own family life) how to best  to capture wonderful images for a  school who support kids with more complex needs.

Relaxed Staff Photos

Relaxed lifestyle staff photos of your Senior Leadership Team, Teaching staff,  and Support staff in their natural surroundings...doing what they do best.   I've learnt very fast that most teachers HATE having their photos taken so capturing them naturally in action seems to be a popular option - plus it shows parents a true snapshot of what life is truly like in your school setting.

Team photos / more formal shots (facing camera) available too.   Allow 5-10 mins per person for headshots, 20mins for group team photos.

St Benedict's Catholic Primary School

Louise was a pleasure to work with. She has took marketing photographs for our school website and prospectus. She was especially good at engaging with the children and really put them at ease to get the best from them. Louise took some amazing shots of the staff and children, she really captured how happy they are in our setting, she even got a lovely portrait shot of me. I could not recommend Louise highly enough - she was professional, patient and enthusiastic throughout.

I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU and WOW!  the photos are absolutely wonderful !! They truly capture the spirit of Greenbank, it’s amazing that after only a few visits, you totally know what we are about.

Marketing wise you will make my job so much easier, we look forward to working with you again soon ! - Marketing & Media Manager

We have worked with Louise several times now and each time it has been a very positive experience. Louise plans carefully beforehand but appreciates the need for flexibility in a busy school! The photos have been excellent and true to the ethos of the school, something we were keen for Louise to showcase through her photography. We will definitely be using Nurtured with Love's services again - Headmaster

St Simon's Catholic Primary School

Thank you for visiting our school and for capturing our children loving, learning and laughing together, so expertly. The images reflect our school ethos perfectly and will be used to remind us and share with others that whatever we do at St Simon's, we do for the glory of God.

Your friendly approach and casual style was a hit with our children; they trusted you and responded well to your instruction. We particularly appreciated the way that you were calmly relentless in your quest to photograph even the most reluctant of subjects!

The final images are bright, varied and a true representation of our wonderful school. We will showcase them with pride to celebrate our children - the real superstars. Looking forward to welcoming you back in the future. Thanks once again.

The Orchard (SEN Unit)

Louise joined us on a recent trip to the local community allotments. She instantly made our children feel at ease with her sunny and fun disposition. Louise got involved, sporting her wellies and patiently managed to shoot the action and joy of the morning. Our SEN group require our full attention so photographing these moments can sometimes be tricky, especially as some of our children don't like being photographed. Thank you Louise for capturing such gorgeous natural images of our event - the staff and parents of The Orchard are very grateful.

They are the most beautiful and amazing photos. Absolutely fantastic work from Louise. We are super delighted and I have booked her to photograph our sister school already.
