surrey photographer - Vicki KnightsHi, I’m Vicki.

So this is the bit where I need to tell you a bit more about me. Well firstly I’m mum to 2 gorgeous boys and wife to a lovely man. They’re the inspiration behind everything I do and fill me with pride every day.

Photographing people is my absolute passion. This is SO much more than a job to me.

I’ve been in business for over a decade and have photographed well over 500 families and business owners. I still get excited about every single shoot I do.

Read more about my aim for every family shoot I do here.

My photography style has been described as natural, joyful, expressive and beautiful. I love to capture children and families authentically (no cheesy poses or fixed ‘cheese’ grins allowed) but making them look beautiful at the same time!

One of my super-powers is making people relax in front of my camera. I help even the most camera-shy people feel confident at my shoots!

With a mum of two boys myself, and having photographed hundreds of children over the past decade, I’ve seen it all! I’m known for my ability to get you belly-laughing and cuddling during your session, and you’ll leave it feeling like you have made special memories and have reconnected as a family.

I’m also passionate about capturing images for big-hearted entrepreneurs that takes their business to the next level and help them to stand out from the crowd. You can see more details about my headshots and personal branding shoots here. 

My work has been published in local and national press including Vanity Fair, The Telegraph, The Guardian, Sunday Express, Mother & Baby and Practical Photography magazine.

I’m also on a mission to show all parents how to take great photos of their kids when I’m not around. Check out my online photography course for parents.

I have mentored and trained other professional family photographers since 2014 and I co-host an award-winning podcast for photographers.

I live in the Hindhead/Haslemere area of Surrey with the 3 men in my life….my boys, my husband Karl, our dogs and cat. Here are a few photos of me with my lovely family.


When I  haven’t got a camera in my hand, you can normally find me going for walks with our dogs Betsy & Teddy, giggling with friends (normally over a glass of wine or 3!), attempting a downward-facing dog or binging on a Netflix series!

If you’re still not sure if I’m the right photographer for you, hopefully reading this should help you decide.

Here are some iPhone photos of me with my family and some random facts about me so you can get a glimpse into my world before you invite me to photograph yours!
