London portrait photographer Serena Bolton



My journey with photography began in school, where I first got my hands on a camera. However, it wasn’t until I ventured to India at the age of eighteen that my true passion for photography ignited. Ever since then, I’ve been an enthusiastic traveler and photographer.

I studied Art History at SOAS and Fine Art Sculpture at Chelsea and Wimbledon Art Schools. During my tenure in art school, photography became an integral component of my creative process. It evolved beyond mere documentation, often becoming the final artistic expression in my work. After art school, I created photographic artwork for interior designed luxury show homes in London.

Becoming a mother profoundly impacted my relationship with photography – I seized the opportunity to immortalise the fleeting moments in the lives of my children as they grew. The photographs I’ve captured have become my most cherished possessions, and I regard them as a living legacy.

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 time, I was asked by others to capture portraits of their children and undertook extensive professional training to perfect my craft. In 2003 I founded Serena Bolton Photography “SBP” which I ran and built while raising my family.

My work evolved from family portraiture to include personal branding, executive and headshot photography, corporate commissions from banks and global management consultancy groups. As well as events with top event organisers for private individuals and clients such as Hermes and Cartier.

As demand for my services has grown, so too has SBP Ltd. and I now work with other talented photographers to enable me to fulfill all of my clients’ photography needs. 

Based in West London, I undertake Corporate Photography, Personal Branding Photography, Headshots, Family, Women and Teen Photogrphay at my studio as well as location work throughout the UK and abroad. I am wife to Dominic and a mother to 2 grown sons, Louis & Oscar, as well as Rolo, a working cocker spaniel.

If you require a great portrait for business or pleasure – want to capture beautiful portraits of your children and family – are planning a wedding or party – or would like to gift a photoshoot, we would love to hear from you.
