Carin Thakrar Photography - west London newborn, family and maternity photographer

About me

I’m a country girl at heart - born and raised in a little village in Sweden, but made London my home 10 years ago. Creativity has always been a part of me; being it drawing, designing magazines or playing piano. I discovered photography a bit later - and since having my children it has slowly become a passion. Not so much the camera and gear as being able to capture moments - to help me remember them and re-live them through the pictures. 

My main passion is family photography: to be able to capture the soul and essence of a family, and to know how much joy the photos are giving them is just amazing. 

I have a fantastic husband who I have three wild and beautiful children with, and we live in Isleworth in west London. We spend a lot of our free time going for trips to parks and forests, having (a slightly unhealthy amount of) ice-cream, watch family movies and spending time with the extended family. 

I studied media technology and graphic design in Sweden, the U.S and Spain, and have worked as a graphic designer for over 10 years. Becoming a photographer felt like a natural transition for me. 

Apart from newborn and family photography, I also do children's portraits, smaller events and headshots. (Have a look at my portfolio here)

I am also a graphic designer and can help you with things like logos, branding or marketing material.
