“Natasha was great at capturing our children’s character and spirit and was incredibly patient with both them and with me. As a mother herself she really understands kids and as a result makes them feel like it’s just another day running around the woods and not a photo shoot”
Though photography began as a hobby for me when I was a teenager, inspired by photographs my father had taken, it soon became a creative outlet, a way for me to capture moments, to create memories and to tell stories. My passion for photography was reignited by the birth of my own baby six years ago. I wanted to hold on to every second of this new life unfolding before me. I love capturing today’s memories and preserving them for the future, not just the first smiles, first steps, first holidays, but the magic in everyday moments and family life.
I am a big kid at heart, I have a very fun, easy-going personality, and I like my shoots to be playful experiences. To get the most authentic photographs, I allow the children to dictate the flow of the session. Being a mother, too, I know how important it is to be patient and calm as a newborn is fed and comforted, or as a toddler slowly sheds her camera shyness. I may give some gentle direction to make sure everyone is in the best light, and to make sure you achieve the type of photos that you want.
It’s inspiring that I get to play a part in capturing the magic of childhood and preserving it forever.
I really want you to treasure the photographs that are taken on the day of your photo shoot and be able to look back at them in five, ten or twenty years time and they will still bring a smile to your face. So, I really try to capture the character of any babies, children and families that I work with. I love using natural light because of its beautiful, soft quality, and how it changes over time.
Learn more about how my shoots work or drop me a line and we can discuss your requirements. I look forward to meeting you and your children! Please read all the kind words that my clients have said about me.
I cover a 10 mile radius in and around Brighton & Hove.
What Clients Say About Me – Family Photo Shoots
So, so pleased with our photos. Natasha was great at capturing our children’s character and spirit and was incredibly patient both with them and with me, even when I insisted on wearing 4 inch heels in a forest! Natasha has a very artistic eye and is brilliant at catching the not-so-obvious shots. As a mother herself she really understands kids and as a result makes them feel like it’s just another day running around the woods and not a photo shoot. We will always smile when we look back at these photographs at the happiness and mischievousness that comes shining through and that’s all credit to Natasha. Thank you.Alison Ferns
Wow, so many great images we don’t really know where to start with our selection! Natasha had certainly given a lot of thought to the variety of shots she was hoping to achieve before we’d even turned up for the day. While our 5-year old was a very willing model, our 2-year old was not, so it is nothing short of outstanding that we have so many beautiful pictures to cherish. If you want photos that are full of life, depth and vibrancy, I can’t recommend Natasha and Red Pebble Photography highly enough.Melissa Brookes
Massive thanks to Natasha for our beautiful pictures taken at stamner park. This wasn’t an easy shoot for Natasha as our eldest daughter refused to smile or cooperate but Natasha was not at all fazed and kept persevering with great ideas on how to coax some grins out of her! Thanks again and would totally recommend.Leigh Gibson
Natasha made our kids feel so at ease, she was so patient with them and they had a lot of fun (rather than having to sit still and pose!?) We were absolutely thrilled with the shots, so natural, vibrant and beautiful against the fab setting of Brighton seaside (which is also where we live and the kids have grown up). I don’t know quite how she got so many smiling shots of my 2 year old, who wasn’t really cooperating!? I would definitely recommend her, she has a real eye for capturing candid, natural shots which are full of life, and are wonderful keepsakes.Susie Sefton
Thank you so much Natasha! We are absolutely delighted with our photos. The whole experience was great and so professional. Despite none of us being ‘natural smilers’ you somehow worked your magic and captured some absolutely fab photos. Thank you so much!Kate Osbourne
I would absolutely recomend Natasha. She was brilliant with our 5 year old daughter, who giggled her way through the entire photo shoot. She somehow managed to get lovely, natural shots, despite our daughter refusing to stay still for more than a second! She completely captured her personality, and we will treasure the pictures always.Helen Tatch
Natasha was brilliant. We met her in Stanmer Park and the whole experience was really chilled and relaxed. She was really prompt with sending the pictures and we now have a CD full of some lovely memories. The price was reasonable and we’d have no hesitation using Natasha again. Thank you!Jo Williams
Delighted with Natasha’s photos of us on a lovely sunny day at the beach! Her warmth and friendliness made us all feel really relaxed. I particularly love some of the ones she has taken of our little man!Anna Bush
Thank you so much Natasha for a fun afternoon having our family photographs taken on Lancing beach. Natasha made the whole experience really natural and enjoyable. She was fantastic with my two young children. We can’t wait to see the photographs. I would highly recommend Natasha.Suzanne Llewellyn

The kids had so much fun working with Natasha, she made the whole experience fun and still managed to capture so many of their expressions that we love and the result speak for themselves… photos that we will cherish for a long time to come. The images were not staged but happened in such a natural way that it was a relaxing and fun experience for all of us. I would recommend Natasha to anyone who is looking for some great photos as well as a fun experience for all.Kate Finberg
Natasha totally captured my son’s personality in our photo shoot down at the beach. The results are a set of stunning photographs that we will always treasure. And to top it all she made it a fun and relaxed experience so that we all enjoyed the process. I couldn’t recommend Natasha highly enough.Sophie Harvey
Had a fun morning on the beach with Natasha. She managed to get some beautiful shots of my son despite his best efforts not to look at the camera. Very Highly recommended.Mark Daniel
Can not recommend enough considering a two year old boy that wouldn’t have any of it I received fantastic photo’s of both Sammy & Emily will definitely be back for more as they both grow.Kelly Osman

What Clients Say About Me – Newborns
Thanks Natasha! We absolutely love the pics. The newborn stage seems so fleeting that it is wonderful to have photos that really capture this stage and give us memories to treasure. I did not expect Joseph to be as amazingly relaxed as he was but i think this was down to you meeting all his needs and keeping him so calm – he was always kept warm, continued to be breastfed as and when needed, enjoyed the background ‘white noise’ and looks completely snuggled and cosy in all the pics. Thank you!Annabelle Walker
Very friendly and professional. A natural with our baby keeping her calm and happy throughout. The pictures are amazing! You have captured some wonderful family pictures that we will treasure forever. Thank you Natasha! xxEmily Evans
Lovely photos Natasha. We had fun and our baby boy was happy and content (and asleep!) whilst having the photos done.Farah Suleman
Natasha is fantastic to work with, has a great eye for setting up the shot and the results are truly stunning.Adrian Collins

I cannot praise and recommend Natasha enough she was so patient with my 4 year old she just has the magic touch even though at times my daughter was in a bit of a grump and wasn’t massively up for cooperating there is no way you could tell from any of the photos. She’s incredible and has captured such wonderful images that I will treasure forever.Michelle Mackmin
Natasha was fab to work with and the photos are beautiful. I’m so happy with them. It’s not easy working with babies but Natasha is patient and kind which makes the process soon much easier!Rachel Collins
What Clients Say About Me – Photobooths
I booked Natasha for my 40th birthday at Big Beach Cafe in Hove. Natasha was brilliant – all the guests really enjoyed the photo booth and silly props that she had provided and returned to the booth several times throughout the evening. I am really pleased with the photos and they will be an excellent keepsake for me of the night.Emma Jarvis
It was really, really cool having the photo booth at our party it was brilliant! It made our party extra special for us and we have some epic photos to remind us of what a great time we had. Everyone enjoyed getting dressed up and striking their pose; even some of my friends who aren’t keen on having photos taken quickly got the hang of it with all the cool props. It was so much fun and we laughed so much!Natasha took some fantastic photos of all of my friends looking absolutely gorgeous … And a little bit crazy! Thank you Natasha can you come back next year?!!Louise Cox

What Clients Say About Me – Animal Photo Shoots
I had the pleasure of meeting Natasha and her photography when she spent a pleasant afternoon with my son, daughter in law and my lovely grandchildren. I was so impressed that I phoned and booked an appointment (but with a difference) and I am proud to say I was the first person for her to photograph my gorgeous Labradors, I chose the venue and we picked a perfect day weather wise. I found Natasha to be extremely relaxed and very friendly, we spent nearly two hours together, she was so patient and kind with my dogs as I said it was her first photo shoot with dog’s. Needless to say the photos were wonderful (a Christmas present for my husband). I highly recommend her work and a very reasonable package. I have also met a very nice lady and friend.Adele Steer
What Clients Say About Me – Nurseries
Red Pebble Photography came to our nursery, Fizzy Fish, last Autumn. To ensure that all the children were included in a photoshoot, Natasha arranged several sessions over a month – she was incredibly patient, very endearing to the children and worked around the routine of our setting. She captured the personalities of all 30 children aged 6 months to 2.5 years. All the parents were thrilled with the photographs and we have invited Natasha to our other setting Fizzy Fish Pre School in the Spring to take photos of our older children.Lou Adams, Manager, Fizzy Fish Nursery and Pre-school.
Natasha has come into our preschool on a number of occasions over the last year to take photos of the Dolphins children as part of our Parents as Partners initiative. She managed to capture images of the children in a natural and relaxed manner while they played and explored in our outdoor space. All the parents were delighted with the quality of the photos which showed their children’s individual personalities.Sheila Gavan, Principle, Dolphins Pre-school.
