carin thakrar west london photographer

Hej!* I'm Carin.

Ever since a kid, creativity has always been a part of me – through arts & crafts, music, and later, graphic design and photography. My passion for photography grew stronger after having children, when they quickly became my favourite thing to practise on. I live in west London with my husband and three children, in a wonderful mix of Swedish and Indian culture. We spend a lot of our free time going for trips to parks and forests, travelling abroad, having too much ice-cream, and seeing our extended family. 

As a photographer, I specialise in storytelling photography for business owners, teams and families. I also take a small number of weddings every year. My aim is to give you a fun and stress-free session, whilst capturing natural expressions and emotions. Although the sessions are mainly un-posed, I will guide you throughout the session for best possible light and composition.

I can also help create bespoke, beautiful brand designs - either on its own or with photography - I've worked as a designer for nearly 20 years, both in the UK and in Australia.

If you are interested in booking one of my sessions or for my design services, I’d love to hear from you! You can find out about my prices here, or just email me at if you’d like to find out more!

50 Phenomenal Photographers award

I’m very proud to be part of The Brand Stylist’s list of 50 Phenomenal Photographers - a curated edit with 50 magnificent photographers with a broad range of styles from around the world.

“Honest, real and evocative work, it’s so good to see the realities of life being celebrated in all their forms.”


I’ve always admired Carin’s art direction and natural storytelling, both working in the design industry we understand the importance of professional, well executed photos. I knew she’d help me feel relaxed and get the expert results I wanted.

I’d highly recommend this experience with Carin, I am totally in awe of her skills and ability to capture me in my environment, not looking like the goofball that I feel that I am. Thank you from the bottom of heart for making me look like the professional I am!
