About Me Paola Perni:
Your Specialist London Family Photographer

Professional Family Photography in London


Hello, London families!

I'm Paola Perni, your London-based specialist photographer capturing timeless portraits and authentic connections.

Whether you're seeking beautiful family photos in Wandsworth or a stunning studio session in Kennington, I'm here to document your unique story through the lens.

I offer on-location sessions across Greater London and local photoshoots in Central London and South London near you.

You might prefer a captivating outdoor shoot across Battersea or St.james' Park, maybe Hyde Park. Feel free to reach out.

My experience allows me to connect with families of diverse backgrounds.


My signature style blends formal composition, studied light design, and a focus on natural poses. Capturing authentic moments allows your family's true essence to shine through, creating powerful and intimate portraits to cherish for years.

Your Trusted London Family Portrait Photographer

As a trusted London family portrait photographer, I've witnessed nearly every situation imaginable in my career – from joyous maternity shoots capturing the excitement of expecting London families to heartfelt newborn photography. Speaking of professional newborn photography near me, sometimes I shoot birth sessions directly in the theatre: it's a truly magical experience.

While I enjoy working regularly on exciting projects outside London, I lie in capturing the charm of families and their stories across Greater London. 

Let's capture memories together through authentic sessions and local photoshoots in South and Central London.

As an animal lover, especially equines, cats and dogs, I wholeheartedly support initiatives focused on their welfare and well-being.


So, let's chat about capturing your family's story!

Whether it's near your favourite London spot, another corner of the UK, or somewhere more exotic, I'd be honoured to be your trusted London family photographer and document these precious moments in your journey.

Why I Chose Pennypics: A Client's Story

"I have known Paola for several years. She has been working on professional projects for my architectural practice and informal personal assignments. She has approached each job always with the same professionalism, accuracy, creativity and artistic flair. She has made valuable contributions in representing my projects and I consider Paola a member of my team.


She has met me on several locations in the UK and abroad and she has been always extremely flexible in accommodating even very tight travel schedules. Working with Paola is easy, she can defuse tense situations and she makes everybody comfortable with her great sense of humour. Over the years I have become accustomed to her very exacting standard but every time she manages to exceed my expectations."
