Life is too short for ordinary photography!
I’m Andisheh Thomson – a photographer of little people and their families. Most people agree that their family is the most important part of their lives. One of the reasons I became a baby and family photographer is the joy I bring when I capture so much love and happiness. Sometimes families book me for a special occasion – like a surprise gift for a grandparent’s birthday. Or maybe it’s because their 9 month old is growing way too fast and they want to remember how tiny and cute they are! Whatever the reason, beautiful photography is something that families treasure for a long time. I have three pictures of my daughter that I’ve placed at the bottom of my staircase. I took these when I photographed her preschool and every single time I look at these photos, it makes me happy. I will never get tired of looking at them! I want everyone to feel that way!
I trained as a professional photographer 10 years ago and have had my work published in most major UK papers, including the Times and Telegraph. I live in Twickenham, in lovely Richmond-upon-Thames, Southwest London. If you’ve met me, you’ll know that I have a lot of energy – which is perfect for photographing children. Hopefully you’ll see from my pictures that my style is unfussy. I love pictures of children that show genuine happiness and of those tender quiet moments when they forget I’m photographing them. I photograph all ages of children and I also adore newborns (who doesn’t!?) which is why I also specialise in newborn photography when babies are about a week old.
Andisheh’s areas of photography expertise
One of the first questions families often email me about is where photo shoots take place (that, and how much I charge!). Because I do both studio and natural style photography, families have the option of coming to my studio in Twickenham Green or doing something on location in the park or at their home. Several times a year I also do mini photo shoot sessions on location at different play groups, like Frankie and Flo’s play cafe or for local NCT fundraisers. In case you want more details as to the areas I cover, it’s basically South West London areas near the Thames River. This includes Twickenham (of course!), St Margarets, Richmond, Teddington, Kingston upon Thames, Surbiton, Kew, Barnes, Chiswick, Putney, Wimbledon, Wandsworth and throughout Surrey including Walton, Thames Ditton, Esher, Cobham, and Weybridge.
