We’ve been featuring a great collection of London portrait photographers nominated by our readers. Choosing that special person to photograph your family can be a daunting experience. Hopefully our roundup will help make the decision process a little easier. Check out our recent spotlights here, here and here...
Our next two nominees are Sasha de Paz and Kelly Reeves. Enjoy!
SASHA de PAZ
Mum-of-three Sasha de Paz moved to London last year from Warwick, where she had been a portrait photographer for three years. Continuing her work here in London, she now has clients dotted about in Chelsea, Clapham, Battersea, Dalston, Belsize Park, Camden and Surrey.
“I adore my work. The children all certainly have fun with me and the parents love having a break when we are on location. It seems parents are looking more towards natural fine art photography as opposed to studio work, a more natural experience for their children.”
She tries to make her portraits candid, capturing children at their most natural and relaxed, which she feels lends itself to a more timeless portraiture.
“My portraits have received a lot of praise which is fantastic. Last year I was approached by the Guardian to write for them. I wrote ‘How to photograph your children’, aimed at helping parents get the most from their summer snaps!”

Kelly Reeves is a Chiswick mum of three who formerly worked in the Ofsted-registered childcare industry before starting her own photography business. She considers photography to be not only her career, but her passion.
“My style of photography is most definitely as natural and as candid as it can be. I like to shoot and capture moments as they actually happen in the natural state and the way they happen, using natural light wherever I can.”
While using the outdoors and local locations is her favourite way to shoot, Kelly does own a mobile studio and can accommodate this style also.
“Clients should expect a very friendly, relaxed session. Having spent many years raising my own children as well as working in childcare, I am very confident working with children and babies. I aim to make sessions as fun and exciting as possible—and with tiny babies, as calm and tranquil as possible. I strive to capture moments in time that you will treasure forever.”
