  • I would recommend this business

We have had a wonderful time with Brigitte on our photo session. Her enthusiasm, professionalism and superb results made the whole affair fun! Brigitte was great with the kids and caught some really precious shots. We would highly recommend Brigitte and will most certainly ask her to take more photos in the future. Brigitte - thank you - so pleased with the beautiful photos

  • I would recommend this business

My Dad wanted a family photo for his 80th birthday. This simple request was actually a real challenge: we have a 10 month old daughter, my sister is 7 months pregnant, and my parents' mobility is limited. However, Brigitte found a perfect location, and with great humour (and a lot of patience!) really brought out the best in all of us to capture a genuinely beautiful and happy set photographs of our family that we will truly treasure.

I couldn't recommend Brigitte more! She took the most amazing portfolio of pictures of my granddaughter. Absolutely stunning!! She came to the house, and we had a very relaxed session resulting in the most perfect pictures.

Lovely review from author Fiona Goble @indiie_knitting_designer " Brigitte did some author photos for me for my publishers. I normally hate photographs of myself...but I really liked Brigitte's photos because I look so much more relaxed and confident

From Our Website

For families, I create beautiful images of your children and big life events that you can treasure for ever. For small businesses, my commercial photography will help make sure your work gets noticed by the right people.


I completed my three-year apprenticeship with a Master Photographer near my home town and then worked for the regional press in Germany. When I moved to the UK, I worked for a photo agency and as a freelance photographer and my work appeared regularly in books and magazines. I married a Brit and we now live with our 14-year-old twin boys in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, just 25 miles from central London. I am happy to work locally and to travel, and speak fluent English, German and Spanish. When I'm not working or busy with my family, I love listening to music - anything from classical to reggae and I love design and the arts.


We've used Brigitte a couple of times and she has taken some stunning photos of our family, even when our kids don't really want to play ball! Thanks Brigitte, we love the new Folio. Brigitte has accomplished a miracle with the photos she took for my new website as I hate having my photo taken. But she cajoled me through the whole process and I actually really enjoyed it in the end. I think even the dogs did and she captured us so well in nature which was one of the ideas that I wanted to portray on my website.


A portrait is the first impression of you or your business. I am an experienced portrait and headshot photographer and will make sure you are relaxed in front of the camera and that you achieve a natural, yet professional look. The images can be taken at your home, in your office, outdoors or in my studio in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire. I cover a 15 mile radius or further afield and abroad on request. Prior to the shoot we will discuss your requirements. I can take the pictures in your home, office, outdoors or alternatively in my home and can set up a studio if required.


I love watching children play; they are spontaneous, creative and sometimes cheeky! I can capture your children's personalities either in the intimacy of your home with their toys, or on location outside, where they can burn off energy in a natural and relaxed atmosphere. Please browse the image gallery, for ideas and inspiration, or bring your own suggestions to our initial free consultation. Prior to the shoot we will discuss the various options and alternatives. I can take the pictures outdoors, in your garden, the park or in the comfort of your home.


For small businesses, having pictures of yourself and your products on your website can make a huge difference to potential clients. People buy people, and you want them to have a positive impression of you, even before they've met you. I specialise in providing small businesses with natural photographs which create the perfect first impression. Prior to the shoot we will meet to discuss the nature of your business and requirements. Together we will develop a concept for the shoot. I can take the pictures on your premises, in your home, outdoors or wherever is appropriate, or set up a studio on location.


When photographing an event, I take time to meet people, familiarise myself with the venue and itinerary so I can provide clients with an all-inclusive story of their special day. I capture the emotion, the highlights, the people and the surroundings so they can re-live the occasion forever. Prior to the event we will discuss the timing and plan for it. Please let me know if you have any specific requirements or ideas. I like to mingle with the guests unobtrusively and take reportage style images of your gathering or can set up a studio in your venue or home, for more formal group shots or family portraits.


A wedding is such a special occasion you want to capture the emotion and highlights but might not need a photographer to cover the full day from early morning to the last dance? I offer two alternative packages covering the highlights of the day for 2 to 6 hours, the arrival of the bride, the ceremony (registry or church), a few group shots with family, friends and bridesmaids, a few relaxed portrait shots of the bride and groom and reportage style images at your venue. Prior to the wedding we will discuss your ideas and the plans for your wedding photos, for example the arrival of the bride, the registry or church wedding ceremony, the family or group shots, the couple shots and reportage style images of your guests.
