Classical Portraits of Childhood Adventures

About Mimi

I’m a Sussex based portrait Photographer offering location based family photography including: child portraits, family portraits, family events and children’s parties

How it All Began

Growing up in London I often visited art galleries and was in awe of so many photographers and artists, but I never imagined being a photographer myself.

Photography put me in touch with all the things I love, exploring new places, constantly learning and meeting new people.

It wasn’t until 2003 that I bought my first digital camera. I was moving to Spain and wanted to document my experience, and my journey with photography began.

Largely self-taught which means that I learnt by reading, under going a great deal of practicing, attending online tutorials as well as joining some incredible London based short courses and workshops.


I call my portrait sessions “childhood adventures” because during our time together we have so much fun, playing hide and seek, leap frog, or my own made up games of make believe.

I love the energy being a family photographer gives me which allows me to relive my youth on a daily basis.

Knowing that your children will be looking at their photographs in years to come, perhaps showing them to their own children, and reminiscing on happy days gives me a great sense of pride.

My philosophy

My style of portrait session is about the people in front of the lens.  I want to take photographs that tell a story about who you are and what you like to do.

Before booking in a session its important to me to talk to you about your family.  What you like to do together, the places you go and find out more about the unique individuals that make up your family.

After a session, I don’t think you want a disc full of images that will remain in a draw, technological advances meaning that they can’t be accessed in the future.

My philosophy is place your images in places where they can be enjoyed time and time again.  In a frame, on a canvas or in an album, if you want digitals too, just in case, that’s fine too.

Mimi VP Photography provides a service that is as personal as you are.

By committing life’s milestones to photographic images, we are allowing ourselves to relish, relive and reimagine those important times.
