ABOUT ME

with 22 comments

Hi, I am Xanthe (pronounced Zan-thee) I live in London, UK… with the love of my life, our two amazing boys and two adorable cats.

Filling the frame with bright colours, movement, sunshine and smiles; my work centres around family life and adventures…

A wide variety of projects keeps my photography and film business busy. From guiding and inspiring others, through my online film courses, to my relaxed photo session reportage – capturing everyday moments and cataloging these memories is my passion.

“There’s nothing more magical to me, than being able to frame a moment or a connection in time. Lovers embracing, new parents wonderment at new life, siblings sharing laughter, families together & all the details that makes these bonds so wonderful.”

You can find me contributing & blogging here -

Also, I’m running a photo walk at Blogtactular in May and currently loving the new Lumia 1020.

A lover of sand between my toes, things served generously when we got to adventure to Asia last year… and also, I love sitting around the campfire, wearing chucks & bright colours, growing beautiful things in the garden and singing along to music with my boys…

Hey, I’d love to capture your MOMENTS… let me tell your stories through photos & films that can last forever.

Please say hi and contact me for information regarding availability and pricing – each project and portrait session is different.

I’d love to hear from you x.

    Wonderful website…fantastic photos. I’ve joined you for the color project and thank you! SO fun. I am familiar with you from Instagram and followed you at some point last year when you were on far away destinations with your family, it was amazing and inspirational to say the least. Anyway, just popping in. Take care!!

    Hi Xanthe,
    I’ve been browsing through your work instead of finishing behind the scene’s. I got to lesson 12 and your beautiful photo with your sons and then I got lost on your stream..
    I wonder if you would mind sharing what your favorite lens is when shooting those portraits? and if you pretty much stick with that one lens or move around to other…
    Your portrait work is beautiful.

    Wow! I’ve just discovered your work through seeing one of your weddings on Rock My Wedding. Your work is so beautiful, so much character and gorgeous light. Love your website too.

    Love you site, found you through the Kim Klassen blog. I assume you are in London? I am as well! During a rest between contracts I am looking to do a bit more shooting – I do a lot of the community garden I volunteer on. Great place for colour, but no mustard yellow as of yet!

    Hi Zanthe, so impressed by all your pics and how’s you’ve put them together….very heartfelt and ‘real’.
    It certainly looks and sounds like life is being good to you and your boys are gorgeous though that’s hardly suprising!!
    Hope your folk are well too. Do say hi to them….we haven’t spoken in YEARS!!
    Take care

    What a lovely site! My daughter shares your name…and she attends school in Berkeley :) She is named for one of my childhood classmates…we grew up in Berkeley, California. My husband is a photographer as well. Your work is wonderful.

    Hi Xanthe,
    What wonderful pictures! I am just looking for a Wedding Photographer in Berkeley, California and your Website showed up. I was so amazed seeing the film about LOVE and am so sad that you do not live/work in Berkeley, CA to shoot our small Wedding ;-)

    I will put you in my favourites and come back from time to time. It is such a different style of Photographer´s Website. I love it.

    All the best!
    Mandy
