Meet Lynette Brown a Playful Heart Family Photographer

The why

My mum always regretted that among the pile of photographs she took of us when we were kids, there is not one photograph of her with either myself or my brother and sister.

Now that I’m older, with only a trace memory of what my mum looked like back then or who we were in that juncture of our lives, I wish I had at least one portrait to paint our family’s story.

But the reality is: For many parents (and grandparents), day-to-day family life just doesn’t leave a lot of room for documenting these fleeting moments in time. And this is exactly why I’m so passionate about what I do.

The how

To me, portrait photography is about carving out the time and creative space for your family to engage meaningfully, so I can catch those heart-stealing moments before they pass with a blink.

My aim is simple: To make your relaxed family photo shoot a special day for the whole family to look forward to, while keeping the experience as fun and fuss-free for you as possible.

I’m here to help you capture moments of connection and get the kind of photos you’ll be proud to adorn your walls with for years to come, even if you’re a wee bit self-conscious about being in front of a camera or you’ve got ants-in-the-pants kids who can only sit still for 0.05 seconds.

All you’ve got to do is bring an open heart, a ready-to-frolic mind, and most important of all, your bottomless love for one another.

The where

I’m a North London girl and grow up in Hendon and Finchley, I currently live with my husband just outside London and serve the surrounding area including Whitstable and Sevenoaks in Kent, Muswell Hill and Hampstead in London, I’m happy to travel across the UK so contact me if you would love to work with a romantic comedy fan who dreams of one day living by the sea.

If you’re still not sure if I’m the right photographer for you, read a bit more about my approach over a traditional photo shoot.

The MacDonald Family

Lynette recently photograph our family and I’m over the moon! The quality is outstanding and Lynette really managed to capture amazing moments of my family! I really enjoyed the variety of poses that Lynette requested from us and never once felt awkward I knew she would create beautiful photos at the end.

Before our photo shoot Lynette contacted us with all the arrangements and ideas on what to wear, the whole experience was very stress free, during the shoot Lynette was Fantastic with my older son……. He was shy to begin with but she managed to expose his personality really quickly

I can’t wait to display my wall collage with 12 of our favourite photographs and I’m going to display the rest in a photo album,

The Philips Family

Before the photo shoot I was a bit worried about posing for photos and if the children would stay still long enough to get a good one! I didn’t need to worry, Lynette made us feel very relaxed and got the children involved with games and props – I forgot that photos were being taken!

I would differently recommend booking Lynette to anyone looking for great natural looking pictures of the whole family.
