Paula Deegan Photography

Home About



I specialise in FAMILY, CHILDBABY and LIFESTYLE photography in Surrey, London and the surrounding areas.

I approach photography as an art form, seeking out interesting light, movement and raw emotion to inspire my images. I love creating images that tell a story and that capture authentic connections between family members. On a shoot my main aim is to capture your family in a flattering way using available light, either at your home or in a beautiful location.

As part of the client consultation, we will discuss getting the location right so that your family feels 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 down to their level and helping them feel at ease in front of the camera. I always have a few ideas up my sleeve that we can try but I aim to keep it relaxed and fun and let the session take its course.

Paula made a real connection with our kids from the outset, playing games and having fun with them before any photos were taken, so they really trusted her and were completely themselves in front of the lens – which is really evident in the beautiful photos Paula took.

I attained a Diploma of Photography from the Photography Institute in 2011.


I have a recent DBS certificate and am fully insured. I’m also a member of the Societies of Photographers and abide by their rules and conditions.


I have two children of my own so have plenty of experience with kids. I understand what it’s like trying to get an energetic three year old to stop to put on their shoes, or a tired seven year old to finish playing when they have other ideas.


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