PHOTOGRAPHY THROUGH THE EYES OF A STORYTELLER
I am a portrait photographer based in London but work frequently throughout the UK and abroad. I am also a wife to Dominic and mother to 2 teenagers, Louis & Oscar, and have a black working cocker spaniel called Rolo.
School was where I first discovered photography and I used to spend many hours in the dark room. My passion for photography, however, was sparked whilst travelling in India at eighteen and I have been a keen traveller and photographer from that moment on.
I studied Fine Art Sculpture at Chelsea and Wimbledon Art Schools and used photography frequently in my work as an artist, not only as a form of documentation but the photograph itself became the final piece of my artwork. After Art School I worked with Interior Designers creating a variety of artwork for show houses in Belgravia, Mayfair and Knightsbridge.
Since becoming a mother to 2 boys, I have rarely put my camera down. Capturing those precious moments as the boys have grown holds enormous value to me and my most treasured possessions are my photographs. A moment can be fleeting, but capture it on camera and that singular moment becomes an heirloom which will last for generations. I consider photographs to be my legacy.
Over the years my business has evolved from family portraiture to commercial work with the luxury brands Cartier and Hermes; corporate commissions from Deutsche Bank Wealth Management, Clearbell and South Square Chambers amongst others; working with International Event Organisers, Quintessentially and Lillingston, shooting society weddings and events all over the world. I also enjoy many commissions from high profile private clients who value my discretion, trust and confidentiality.
Serena Bolton Photography offers the discerning client the finest personalised and genuinely bespoke service. Each photoshoot is specifically tailored to you and you will receive the highest quality photography.
As a portrait photographer my goal is to capture the essence of you in a series of natural, flattering and great portraits. My photographs do not embellish or alter but have a spontaneous and distinctive way of capturing your real character or the story of your event as it unfolds.
My approach is professional yet informal. You may feel anxious before your shoot. That’s fine, many of my clients do. I am told I am intuitive with a natural ability to empathise and connect with people which helps my clients feel at ease. During your session I will do everything I can to make you, your family and your friends feel comfortable in front of the camera in order to capture the very best version of you and in the process I hope to give you a fun, memorable and enjoyable experience.
Your story is unique and, as a fine art storyteller, my passion is to capture what makes you, your family or your event special…in classical, beautiful and artistic photographs and to create tangible, everlasting memories you can display on your walls and as collections in luxury handmade albums to enjoy and cherish for years to come.
