"Such a joy to be photographed by Paula, her friendly and professional approach to create the look you are after is brilliant!"

Hey I'm Paula

I'm a portrait photographer based in Epsom on the Surrey / London border.

I'm passionate about creating beautiful, expressive portraits of you or your family which are tailored to show the side of your personality you want to get across whilst feeling confident, relaxed and connected.

Feel nervous about having your photo taken? 90% of my clients say they feel the same... at first, but I can assure you that I have strategies in place to help you prepare beforehand and relax throughout. Plus my photoshoots are super-relaxed and friendly and absolutely no experience is necessary!

It's great that you're here! Take a look at the services below and if you have any questions, get in touch I’d love to hear from you!


"I am not naturally comfortable in front of a camera but Paula 'got me' in such a way that I could relax within the first few minutes."


I aim to make each photoshoot experience as straightforward and enjoyable as possible - walking you through the whole process from start to finish so you feel fully prepared beforehand, enjoy the session, and love the images you end up with!

Possibly like many other people, I don't like having my photo taken but Paula made it a relaxing and comfortable experience for me. She took time to understand what I was looking for and I ended up with photos that I am really delighted with. If you are looking for a professional headshot, I would definitely recommend Paula.

This was my first solo photo shoot, I was super nervous and utterly clueless. Thank god for Paula!!! She guided me gently but expertly throughout the whole process. Helping me to figure out things I didn’t realise I should be thinking about. Paula’s natural empathy and warmth made me feel comfortable and at ease. Keen not to look too ‘posed’ Paula knew exactly what to say and when to point and shoot to get the result I was hoping for! I am so glad I chose Paula, she gave me exactly what I wanted, and more besides. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now!!!

I was so pleased with my professional head shots that Paula took for me, and the whole experience was just brilliant. I am not naturally comfortable in front of a camera but Paula 'got me' in such a way that I could relax and within the first few minutes, there were already some shots that I was happy with. Highly recommend.

I went to Paula for a set of professional profile and head shots. The whole experience was super efficient, friendly and well run, with a fast turnaround. Paula has a great style and puts you at ease to get natural looking poses. Photos are lightly touched up as needed and can be tweaked for styles, colours, backgrounds. Overall, very happy with the results and I wouldn't hesitate to use Paula again if/when I need updated photos. Highly recommended.

Paula was our photographer at our small family wedding and she was just amazing. Her professionalism and ability to capture the essence of the moment is extraordinary. Following her lead was just fun and she even made behave our noisy, naughty Italian family! Paula granted all our requests and wishes and we couldn't be happier with her work. Thank you, Paula!

The entire experience was very easy. Paula was very engaging from the moment I contacted her and even researched my company website to check the style of photo that was needed. Was very accommodating and friendly on the day, allowing me to take several style of photo. It took place at her home, and I felt very comfortable. Overall very pleased and would recommend.

I’m a personal stylist / fashion boutique owner and needed a photoshoot of my latest clothing collection. I love the emotions captured in Paula's photos and approached her to photograph me for my business. During the shoot, Paula made me feel relaxed from the beginning. She seemed in control, helped me with making sure my outfit looked good when on location with no mirrors around but most importantly made me feel confident and relaxed in front of the camera. I am not a natural in front of the camera but have to have photos taken all the time for my business - so I was very grateful to Paula for making me feel that way. The photos are AWESOME!!! They are now on my website and social media pages and I've already had lots of compliments about them! Thank you Paula!

Quick responses to emails, friendly calls to discuss the shoot, very welcoming and amazing studio set up, very prompt editing and delivered some truly outstanding headshots. I'm most grateful and would highly recommend her services to anyone!

I could not recommend Paula enough. After completing online contact form, Paula replied quickly and explained her process in more detail and asked questions to fully understand what it was I was looking for. Paula made the whole experience very easy and put me at ease. From the first telephone conversation to the session on the day, the whole process ran so smoothly and makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed.

Paula did our maternity shoot and I love the pictures. Her turn around time to provide the photos was very quick. She was also very accommodating with changing dates due to the cold weather and my wanting an outside shoot. Will definitely use her again in future.

Paula is professional, talented and easy to engage with. The experience was low key in the best possible way, her work is quality turned around very quickly and incredibly well priced... I couldn't recommend her as a top choice enough. All the stars!

I cannot recommend Paula enough! I left my website headshot to a very last minute and not only she accommodate me quickly but also made me feel relaxed at the shoot and most of all the results were brilliant! Paula is very friendly and patient and the whole experience was enjoyable and relaxed. Paula really understood my vision of what I was trying to achieve and I was pleasantly surprises how many lovely images I had to chose from. I am not a fan of a camera and having a photo taken and I was dreading this experience but I got my website photo in 24 hours and I am 100% happy with the result and her work! Paula is definitely your 'go to' photographer and if I have any more requirements in the future she will be my first choice! Do not hesitate to book your shoot with Paula!
