About Nicola Hippisley Photography

Are you looking for beautifully crafted, emotive family portraiture to share with your loved ones? Do you need a portrait for your website but not too keen to get in front of a camera? Would you like a professional headshot for your business? I am a female photographer with over 20 years of experience producing distinctive images that always delight. I’ve always nurtured a passion for photography and have been fascinated by expressive portraits of people. I love how a smile or a certain gaze can reveal so many dimensions of a person and my aim to showcase the best aspects of someone’s personality. Here I combine my technical expertise and creative eye to produce striking images full of flair. I studied photography at Newcastle College of Art and trained with commercial London photographers. I have my own studio in Stoke Newington, North London, but also shoot on location – either somewhere in the beautiful outdoors, in the comfort of your home or at weddings, christenings and parties. I am patient, warm and friendly and I use my artistic eye and experience to suggest great ideas and ideal props to add something unique to your style or persona. What sets me apart is my ability to build a good rapport – I know portraits make many people nervous but I ensure a calm atmosphere so you feel relaxed and confident in front of my camera – it will be a breeze! I'm always generous with my time and never book too many people on a day (only two portrait bookings per day). So, I’m always fully focused and never rush through my sessions. Your comfort and satisfaction is what counts and this ultimately keeps me going because I love what I do. My rates are very reasonable and I offer discounts for multiple sessions. For instance, a family booking a maternity and a newborn session at the same time, or two families booking an outdoor family portrait session receive a £50 discount for each family. A one-hour family outdoor session is £300 (£250 with discount) and includes 40+ retouched high resolution digitals. For individuals, two adults booking a studio session for business headshot or portraiture get a £25 discount for each adult. Full price £175 (£150 each with discount) including 10 high res digitals in colour and b/w. I also provide a private online gallery service so clients can easily share images with family and friends plus a complimentary custom app for their tablet/phone so they can show-off their photographs on the go. To discover more, please get in touch for a reliable and outstanding service and I look forward to an opportunity of being your photographer.

Seena M.'s review on Jun 25, 2019

We did a newborn shoot with Nicola in our home and are really happy with the lovely photos we have received. The shoot itself was so much fun and Nicola worked her magic by keeping our daughter calm and sleepy throughout! We also had enough time to do a couple of family shots at the end. We really recommend hiring Nicola if you are considering a newborn shoot!

An excellent photo session with our two months old baby. Nicola definitely is a baby whisperer, and the aforementioned baby enjoyed it a lot.

Shaju M.'s review on Dec 10, 2018

From start to finish Nicola was very professional. The pics have turned out great and the variety/choice far exceeded what we were expecting. She has some very good props to work with, our daughter was thrilled with all of it especially the balloons! The turnaround was stated as 2 weeks from photo shoot to sending us the pics, and she was bang on with that timetable. The retouched pics look fantastic, we are glad to have booked Nicola's service's and will be looking to book her in future as well.

Ana P.'s review on Dec 07, 2018

I am glad I hired Nicola as a photographer for our wedding. She was very professional and helpful. She went out of her way to make everything work well, like she arrived at church early and photographed the guests and the groom before the wedding started and even bought the confetti for the after wedding pictures, amazing! I was a bit nervous at the beginning, but she made it a lot easier for me to be able to relax in front of the camera. Thanks so much Nicola, John and I really appreciate your help and the photos look fantastic!
