moments you Won't want to forget

"Pippa's presence was unobtrusive and my kids eventually forgot she was even there. She quietly captured our real life getting moments and expressions that were so fleeting I didn't even notice them happening until I looked back at the photos which truly froze those special glances and touches in time forever."

details you can hold onto forever

"Pippa joined us at the hospital where my second born son entered our lives and she captured every memorable moment perfectly all while giving us the space and sense of intimacy we required. Nothing posed or scripted as you are so preoccupied! We will forever have these unbelievable memories to look back on thanks to Pippa’s abilities!"



memories meant to last a lifetime

"Such a pleasure to have Pippa capture a day in our family’s life! Amazingly talented!!"

May you grow up to be righteous, may you grow up to be true.

May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you.

Meet Pippa

Hello! I'm Pippa - and I'm a documentary family photographer for one reason: YOU.

I believe that the hard work, day in and day out, that you are doing as a parent is worth celebrating, and I want to celebrate YOU, just as you are. I've lived all over the place - London, NYC, Vancouver, Los Angeles - and it's family and my role as a mother that keeps me grounded no matter where I am. 

I believe that the photographs that result from the real, authentic approach of documentary family photography are the ones that matter most. Your life is authentic, and your family photographs should reflect that authenticity.

We often see the real, the messy, and even the negative bits as bad and something not worth capturing. But this is where your story truly shines, and where your work as a parent comes full circle. 

Someday your children will realize everything you did for them. Let's provide photographic proof of how wonderful your every day is, and give them something tangible to hold onto 30 years from now. 




If you want to keep your memories, you first have to live them.

Whatever colors you have in your mind, I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine.
