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 12 years and have photographed well over 500 families and yet I still get excited about every single shoot I do. I love the fact I’m 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, 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!

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, Guardian, Sunday Express, Mother & Baby and Practical Photography 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.

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!


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!
