England and London based family photojournalist, Panayis Chrysovergis.

Born in 1978, in the middle of the summer in Athens.. And fast forward to 2002: I studied Mechanical Engineering at Technological institution of Athens learning how things work and more importantly how to break them. I then worked in this field for 8 years, but this career path left me searching for a creative outlet. I’ve always liked photography but never thought in my wildest dreams I could make a career out of it. In 2010 i came home with a new mindset and determination, to do something more fulfilling and challenging. Something that would engage me creatively. I succeeded in joining the Department of Photography and Audio-visual Arts, making my hobby my life pursuit. I undergraduate with Ηonors in documentary photography. In 2012, I continued to study Documentary Photography and i attended the “Photojournalism and Documentary Photography” program at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York I completed my studies with a residence in the international research programme of residence in the National School of Photography (Ecole Nationale et superieure de la photographie) the only art school in France dedicated exclusively to photography. I had produced pictures on humanitarian crisis, focusing in social issues around the globe. Some of the countries and projects include India, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, France, Italy, Esthonia, Sweden, Finland, and United States of America among others. Since 2012, my photo projects began to appear in websites, newspapers and magazines worldwide (Le monde, Guardian, Le journal de la photographie, I-D magazine, Vice, National Geographic and others. In 2013 i have been Awarded as one of the best 10 Young Photographers at Athens Photofestival and the following year i was in the 1st Place, at Sony World photography Awards. But it's the story-telling part of working as a documentary photographer that has the most influence on how I now work as a documentary family and wedding photographer and this is how my editorial photography has shaped my photography. I spent a long time learning about light, about people and about story-telling. It’s not easy, telling a story with pictures.

Family Photojournalism in UK, England and London by Lyndsey Goddard

I live on the Kent coast with my husband Steve, another photographer, and our French Bulldog, Ozzy. I've been a full time wedding photographer for almost 10 years, and have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I love the unpredictability of weddings and capturing moments that could never be preconceived. I take the same approach in my family photography, simply spending time with you all and seeing what happens and where the shoot takes us. Life moves by so fast; we all grow older, tiny babies become children, those children become teenagers and before long they are independent adults. With family photography, there's no time like the present to capture you all exactly as you are, at this moment in your lives. I have been a member of the WPJA since early 2010, and was their top UK photographer in 2016. In early 2017 I was awarded the title of ''Wedding Photographer of the Year'' in both the regional and national finals of The Wedding Industry Awards. My work takes me all over the UK telling stories with my camera. Visit my website and let me know if you would like me to tell yours.

Portrait of London family photographer Irma Arrowsmith of England, UK

I've always loved photography, but it was becoming a mum that inspired me to change career and become a family photographer. Once my own daughter arrived I knew that for any parent these moments are the most precious, and personal, imaginable. And I also quickly discovered how fast they fly past and how impossible it is to properly capture them yourself. My relaxed and unobtrusive style of intimate family documentary photography reflects my own personality and attitude to motherhood - I am driven by capturing the moments my clients will always treasure and will want to share with their families, and to do that I ensure my photoshoots are as fun as possible for the families and especially the children. It's the little moments, often unseen in the joyful chaos of family life, that I am most passionate about capturing.

England and Cambridgeshire are where UK family photojournalist Alice Chapman works mostly.

Hello! I'm Alice, a photographer in Cambridge, UK. I have a young family and a cat who misses the quiet life. My house is full of Lego and my garage is full of books I might yet read. I like making things, children's stories about more than just falling asleep in the end, and dark chocolate but a Freddo will do. As a photographer, I love natural light, real life, true personalities, details, humour and telling a story. I love photos that mean something. I believe that being yourself in your photos is something to celebrate and champion. That's why family photojournalism makes my eyes light up. My documentary family photo sessions range from 1.5 hours to a full day. No-one has to say cheese and best behaviour is entirely optional. For photographers, one to one mentoring is available.

Essex family photographer Raluca Chase of England, United Kingdom

Hello! I’m Ralu, a London family photographer. I am based in Essex, but I shoot all over the UK, across Europe and worldwide. I’m the mother of 5 crazy kids and I am in love with people’s stories. To me, family photography is about capturing your life as it is right now. I know that parenting is not easy, which is why I thrive on sessions where kids get to be kids, where their personalities can shine, where I can capture both the maddening chaos and the overwhelming love that they bring to your lives. Your life may not be perfect, but it is yours and it deserves to be celebrated. I can help you do that.

Catherine Hill is a Kent based Day in the Life Photographer

I'm based between Kent and Jersey in the Channel Islands, my family home. I've had a love of photography from an early age and I've been lucky enough to have been photographing weddings professionally for 11 years, and more recently families. I have a passion for creating authentic, honest imagery and have fallen in love with documenting family life. As a mother myself, I know all too well how quickly children grow up. I would have adored having those wonderful, funny, tricky, chaotic, emotional, real moments captured and that I had been in the frame! I love capturing the connections and dynamics between a family and freezing those moments that often as a parent go unseen. Magical moments in isolation. I come from a family of creatives so I suppose it was no surprise photography would be in my life. When I'm not behind the camera, you'll find me in the garden where I can totally lose myself or making sourdough!

Bedfordshire, UK documentary family photographer Sharron Gibson

Hugger. Mother. Earl Grey tea drinker. And, oh yes. Rather importantly, I'm obsessed with light, finding it and looking at it. I love just watching different qualities of light and seeing how it moves and changes the world. I'm a former BBC journalist who went on to study an MA in Photojournalism and follow my photography passion. Photographing families and creating memories for them was born out of that passion.

England and Norfolk are home to documentary family photographer,  Rob Dodsworth

I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings and families since 2010. One of the best things in life is a good story and that's what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by. I get my best images when you're just being yourselves - natural light and natural emotions!

Spain family photographer Nacho Alba works for clients in Madrid.

We are also a family. Therefore, we know how important it is to have memories and to keep them, despite how quickly time passes. One day we wanted to photograph happiness, and we asked ourselves, where is it? At that moment we realized something that we had not been able to see. We were able to understand that happiness does not come from trips or specific things we can do, from an event or a celebration, but that real happiness is with us every day, in the routine of our life, of our home, together with the people we love the most: in games, in the bedtime story, in the afternoons lying on the couch watching a movie and eating popcorn, on walks to the park ...

United Kingdom based documentary family photographer Allister Freeman

I’ve been a professional portrait photographer for many years working with many families and children of all ages, as well as plenty of babies and newborns. Unlike most family portrait photographers, I aim to avoid anything staged or forced. Instead, I photograph my portraits in the same natural and authentic documentary style. I shoot mostly in black and white during these family sessions as I find it helps to convey the personalities, atmosphere and fun over and above colour, which can often be distracting.

Lifestyle Portrait of Nicola Rhodes, West Sussex Family Photographer

The gal looking through that window into your world. I'm mum to a nearly 18yr old forensic science student, mummy to a 3 yr old climbing princess with goggles on her head and always in a tutu, step-mum to a 10yr old flamingo-obsessed singing mermaid, and an 8yr old footballer! I should probably mention my gorgeous and supportive hubby who can not only fix the electrics but also cooks me delicious dinners and spoils me rotten. Life here is organised chaos, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have a very relaxed style of photography and like to let things unfold naturally, encouraging children to run around and explore so that I can see them naturally, keeping them engaged and capturing their individual expressions and unscripted moments, this is the point in lifestyle photography. I’m always happy to give gentle direction with any type of portrait and even with family lifestyle sessions, I will generally take a handful of group photos, parent and child portraits, and individual photos of the child/ children, aiming for a mix of a small number somewhat posed as well as the main bigger bulk of the images being un-posed and true. They don’t have to be elaborate affairs, some of my favourite photos were normal, simple, everyday moments - captured beautifully and naturally, using natural light, which I’m known for.
