About Rachel Thornhill ABIPP ASWPP LMPA
I’m Rachel, wife to Andy and Mummy to Oscar (aged 8) and Benjamin (aged 6).
We live in Lower Kingswood, in the beautiful Surrey Hills just a few miles from Reigate, and not far from where I grew up. After a few years away for university in Oxford, and some time in Enfield, we were fortunate enough to be able to return to Surrey, and we now have an active family life here in the Surrey community.
Photography has always been my passion, anyone who has known me through my life will agree! 5 years ago I launched Rachel Thornhill Photography, and my dream job became a reality.
To help ensure my Clients get a great photographic experience and fantastic customer service, I am a fully qualified and award-winning Associate member of the British Institute of Professional Photography, am a Licentiate and award-winning member of the Master Photographers Association and an Associate member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. Those are the letters after my name if you were wondering! All of this ensures my work is of a high standard, and you have the reassurance of using a qualified and fully insured Professional Photographer to capture your important stories. I treat my Clients like friends, and although we always have fun, I take my work seriously, being just the kind of photographer I’d want to have to capture MY family and our story.
I have also had work published in The Guardian, The Evening Standard, Spirit & Destiny, and been featured in Professional Photo Magazine, The Photographer and various Surrey based magazines including Time and Leisure.
When I put my camera down, I am a Beaver Scout Leader, I love practicing Yoga, having fun on rollercoasters with my little thrill-seekers and spending time on the coast around Kingswear, Devon. Blackpool Sands is my happy place!
Below are some images from a Family Portrait session we had with Paul Wilkinson FBIPP FMPA FSWPP. I wanted to know just how you, my Clients feel in front of the camera, and having a Family Portrait Session was one of the best things we have ever invested in. The Storybook Album we chose is now one of my most treasured possessions, capturing our 10th Wedding Anniversary and the time just before B started big school. I want to give you, my Clients, that joy and create your photographs to treasure for many years to come.
So if I sound like the Photographer that you'd like to work with, please get in touch!
