Paula Deegan Photography

Hello, I’m Paula, a natural light photographer based in Epsom, Surrey specialising in BABY, CHILD and FAMILY portrait photography.

I am a mother to two cheeky monkeys who love the fresh outdoors as much as I do and who are my biggest inspiration. I’ve grown to love creating images that tell a story or that capture natural moments between family members. My style has been described as natural, creative, beautiful and sometimes whimsical.

My aim is to capture your child or family in a flattering way using the light that’s available to me, either at your home (space & light dependent) or in a beautiful location. As part of the consultation, my clients and I talk about getting the location right so that children and families feel their most comfortable and I can get the best out of them.

One of the things I really enjoy about a portrait session is interacting with the kids and getting right down on their level (probably because I’m still a kid at heart) helping them quickly feel at ease in front of the camera for those natural expressions I’m looking to capture. I always have a few ideas up my sleeve we can try; however, it’s usually the children who direct the session in the end.

Since getting my first digital SLR camera back in 2003, I become passionate about photography and in 2012 completed a Diploma in Professional Photography. Since then and aside from professional work, I’ve been taking part in a 365 (daily) photography project and have photographed many children and families along the way.

Please see examples of my work in the GALLERIES and read KIND WORDS clients have written here. You can also find out WHAT TO EXPECT in a session and the SESSION FEE here. If you would like to check availability, make a booking or have any questions then please don’t hesitate to CONTACT ME.

My ability to capture natural family / childhood moments in a unique and beautiful way!


Interacting effectively with families and little ones is one of my favourite parts of the job.


I prefer quality over quantity. My focus is on creating a small number of high quality images, rather than a large number of average ones.


Working with little ones on a portrait shoot can be challenging but with my patience and experience with children, I am able to capture many enchanting moments.


I love my work and am dedicated to getting the best result for each and everyone of my clients!
