About Me

Hi, I’m Vicki.vicki-knights-headshot-01

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

Photographing families is my absolute passion. This is SO much more than a job to me. I’ve been in business for 8 years and have photographed over 400 families, yet I still get excited about every single shoot I do. I love the fact I am freezing a moment in time for families and I take that responsibility seriously.

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

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

My work has been published in local and national press including the Telegraph, Sunday Express, Mother & Baby magazine and Professional Imagemaker magazine, as well as on lots of photography and parent blogs.

I’m also on a mission to show all parents how to take great photos of their kids when I’m not around. See my photography workshop website for more details. (You can get your hands on my free training here.) I also mentor and train other professional family photographers.

I live in the Hindhead/Haslemere area of Surrey with the 3 men in my life….my boys (aged 8 and 6) and my husband Karl. When I  haven’t got a camera in my hand, you can normally find me going for long walks with our little dog Betsy, giggling with friends (normally over a bottle of wine or 2!) or in the gym or running if I’m being good!

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!

random facts about me

  • I’m never happier than when I’m walking in the woods or countryside with my family and our dog

  • I start the day healthily with a green smoothie but normally end it unhealthily with wine and/or chocolate!

  • I’m rubbish at baking and tidying (thank goodness I can take a decent photo though!)

  • I have a ridiculous laugh

  • I have a phobia of dry sponge (so does Fearne Cotton apparently!) So please leave any sponge balls at home during our shoot! 😉

  • Nothing annoys me more than bad customer service & rude people
  • I appeared on a TV dating show when I was 20 (no it wasn’t Blind Date!)

  • I love a bit of adventure and am a qualified scuba diver, have jumped out of a plane and have done a bungee jump

  • I’m definitely a night owl…don’t be surprised if you get emails from me at odd times!
