Behind The Camera

Hi, I’m Lucy

I’m Lucy, a mummy, wife, dog owner & self confessed chocoholic.

I’m very easy going, super chatty and I’m in my element when I am behind the camera.

I absolutely love being a mum! Of course it’s incredibly hard and testing at times but the love that you feel for your little person and the joy and love that they give back to you is undeniable.

Watching how quickly my own daughter is growing up and continuing to change, I am very aware of how easy it is to let the lovely moments of every day life pass by and get forgotten about. It is therefore my intention is to preserve those memories by capturing beautiful, natural images that are full of emotion for you to cherish.


Capturing Every Special Moment



Take a peak at my work!

AT home

A photo session in the comfort of your own home. These sessions are perfect for newborns but equally lovely for all of the family, whether that’s snuggled up together on the bed or playing and tickling each other, I’ll capture the joy and fierce love you have for each other. 


A photo session at an outdoor location of your choice.  You get to hang out with your favourite people in a place that is special to you or just provides a pretty backdrop for the photos. It could be the forest, the beach, a flower field or a local park for a picnic. I’ll capture you all having fun and loving on each other.


A photo session of you doing you. These unposed sessions generally take place in your home and I  capture you going about your daily activities, hence the name ‘lifestyle’. This could be baking a cake with the kids, building a brick tower then knocking it over, reading a book together or snuggling on the sofa.




Frequently asked

Do you have insurance?

Yes absolutely! I am fully insured for public liability and I also have a professional indemnity. 

Will you back up our photos?

Of Course! The last thing I would want is for my computer to crash or hard drive to fail after your session and that’s your images lost forever! I back up the images to at least 2 separate hard drives to ensure that they are safe. I addition to this, your images will be backed up in your online gallery, however once your images have been delivered it is then your responsibility to back up.


If you have opted for The Essential package you will receive at least 20 images or 40 images if opted for The Luxury package, all edited in my signature style and usually a lot more, but the amount of images will vary as every session is different. I will leave in as many images as possible, however I can not present every image taken as some will be duplicates, eyes shut etc.

Is Travel included?

Yes, travel is included within a 5 mile radius of my home in Locks Heath for The Basic Package, 20 miles for The Essential Package 40 miles with The Luxury Package. I’m happy to travel further and just require a little extra to cover the cost (45p per mile)

What Equipment do you use?

I’m a Canon girl! I use the Canon R5 professional mirrorless camera accompanied by a range of professional zoom and prime Canon L series lenses but you’ll usually find me on the 35mm or 85mm. I always use both memory card slots, which allows me to continuously shoot to 2 memory cards, meaning that if one memory card failed, your images would not be lost.

How long will it take until we receive our photos?

You will receive your full gallery within 6 weeks of your session date, usually sooner.


Kind words

I would highly recommend booking with LucyLou Photography to capture any precious life moments, as you won't be disappointed. Im chuffed with the photos Lucy sent through from my family shoot. Her service was so great we even had a sneak peak that night! Lucy you're such a talented photographer, your work is incredible!! I will definitely be booking again.


I would highly recommend Lucy at Lucylou photography. We have used her a couple of times over the last 2 years to capture some precious family moments and I have to say that the quality of her work it outstanding! She made us feel very comfortable on all of the shoots and made it so much fun, especially with our 2 year old.Had we known her when we got married, we would have definitely wanted her there to shoot our wedding too. Can’t wait for her to capture more of us in the future! Thanks Lucy x

Couldn’t recommend Lucy enough. She was professional throughout and put us all at ease during the photo shoot. Our 3 and 4 year old boys were on the go all the time but Lucy was so patient with them and had so many creative ideas and ways to make them smile for the photos. The photos were wonderful and meant even more to us as my husbands older children were in them and with the lockdowns we’ve barely been able to see them this past year. The photos were natural and everyone had so much fun during the photo shoot. I picked out some of the photos and Lucy presented them to us in a beautiful album, the perfect birthday gift. Family is so important and we can’t thank Lucy enough for providing us with such a wonderful keepsake.
