Helen Schryver

London & Kent | United Kingdom

I’m a documentary family photographer based in Kent but working lots in London and in the rest of the UK (and the world!).

I live with my 9 year old daughter Olivia (AKA ‘The Rascal’), our huge lego collection and the dream of a sausage dog named 'Sizzles' who we hope will one day become reality! Current obsessions include TikTok and baking.

My love of children and documenting real life with my camera is what got me into family photography. I’ve been a photographer for seven years now and I can’t imagine doing anything else. My photography style is relaxed, natural and honest. I just love capturing all those fleeting moments for my wonderful families, be they heartfelt or silly, and the best thing about being a family photographer is that I get to capture beautiful memories and enjoy my clients’ reactions when they first see their finished photos. I'm passionate about the value of documentary family photography, and how that value just grows and grows over time.. As well as 1.5 hr family photo sessions, I also offer all day 'Day In The Life' sessions. These are my absolute favourite to shoot, and I love doing these for the same families year on year and seeing how they've grown!

My favourite things in the world are travelling and spending time with my extended family, and when I’m not shooting you’ll find me either curled up on the sofa chilling, out at sea on my paddle board, or hanging out with my siblings enjoying a glass of wine or two whilst our kids run riot ;)

I spend way too much time on Skyscanner looking for cool places to visit and nothing makes me happier than travelling around the world and adding new stamps to my passport! In the last couple of years my work has taken me to Bangkok, Dubai, Milan and lots more wonderful places - I count myself very lucky indeed :)
