Hi, I am Xanthe (pronounced Zan-thee) living between London, UK & Hoi An, Vietnam with Luke. I love to fill the frame with bright colours, movement, sunshine and joy – elevating the everyday and bringing a warm smile.

I’m a photographer, video creator, stop motion artist and educator. A wide variety of projects keeps my photography and video business buzzing with activity. From my beginnings in lifestyle portrait photography for families and women, to guiding and inspiring others to start shooting video and make their own films, through my workshops and online courses. I’ve worked with many leading UK brands, such as Boden, Cath Kidston, The White Company, Twinings, Penguin Books, Warner Music, Etsy UK to name just a few – creating videos, stop motions and photos to be shared across their social media channels. Find out more about how I work over here…

The variety of work is something I love, from capturing photos and videos for brand campaigns, to creating a stop motion of handbags & shoes in my home studio, or teaching on a video walk, an online class or being invited to speak and teach at many events around the world… or simply playing peek a boo with my camera, while photographing a toddler.

I’m hugely passionate about personal projects, with always a few on the go to push myself creatively and experiment for fun… for example I made a video every weekend for five years and I’m currently making daily videos on @xanthevideos.

You’ll find me regularly on Instagram sharing something colourful or riding my yellow bike in all kinds of weather or drinking tea, usually in a pretty dress.



I love creating film & photography content for social media campaigns and working with brands through my blog & Instagram feed – Find out more HERE.


“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.”

I’d love to capture your MOMENTS through one of my portrait family sessions… let me tell your stories through photos that can last forever.
