Family Portrait Photographer

Being able to document a persons life through photographs is so incredibly special and important. Especially through the early years because before you know it we’re all grown up. It is my duty as a Surrey family photographer to capture these precious moments between you and your loved ones.

My wardrobes are plastered with pictures of my childhood that my parents have taken of me and my brother. The nostalgia it brings overwhelms me with happiness and constantly reminds me of the amazing family network I have around me. That feeling of nostalgia and overwhelming love is something that I want to create for you and your family when you look at your imagery.

Surrey Family Photographer

I photograph my family sessions in the great outdoors due to the beautiful surroundings we have in Surrey & London. Communication is key when planning a family session and it’s a really exciting process! We’ll be discussing locations, choosing outfits and working out timings amongst other bits and bobs before the shoot takes place.

My sessions usually start with us having a good natter. I love meeting new people and I believe it’s important we get to know each other so that the session is as relaxed and natural as possible for you. It’s the best way to capture the real emotion and the real relationships between you and your family members. I want you to be at ease throughout the whole session and by the end, see me as an old friend. With my approach, I like to take a step back and snap away while watching how you interact with each other to get those candid and beautiful moments.

After the session, I’ll take your precious memories home and start working on the post production taking a great deal of care when hand editing each individual image and then choosing a bespoke selection for you.

Photography is a wonderful art that involves having “the eye” and technical skill. All photographers are different and so is their vision which is one of the main things I love about taking photographs. You will never get the same image twice.

Ultimately with us all being different, it means that we all have a unique way of pricing our services, based on our experience, talent and the quality of our product. The most important thing you are paying for is my time.

To keep things relaxed and simple I only have one package for my family sessions. In this package you will receive a shoot that lasts up to two hours and beautifully hand edited images in screen resolution for £250. If you would like any images in high resolution for printing purposes then please get in contact and I can share my price list with you.


We had a fantastic time with Beth at our twilight photo shoot. Everyone was very relaxed and enjoyed themselves. Beth gave easy direction to produce some fantastic photos.

We had a family shoot with Beth last week and I couldn't be happier with the images she captured! I only really wanted pics of the children as I hate having my photo taken however we all felt so relaxed that she managed to capture photos of us all as a family - which is awesome as usually one of us is taking the picture! Beth was extremely professional and well organised and the kids loved her. Afterwards it wasn't long before we received a link to our photos - her website is brilliant and so easy to use - I couldn't stop flicking through all the shots. So hard to choose which ones I liked best as they were all so lovely. I would highly recommend Bethany Lavin Photography to anyone wanting a photographer that has a natural talent at capturing something special that is often missed with the naked eye.
Omg!!! Omg!!! Absolutely amazing. Seriously thank you so much. I have a tear in my eye. Some of those pictures really caught a moment. You really captured amazing shots, ones we didn't even know you'd taken. We're totally taken aback. Seriously Beth every single photo is my favourite. You're an absolute star.

Thank you very much for the session you had with Amelia. The photos are absolutely stunning. It couldn't of gone any better, I was worried she wasn't going to cooperate as she never stays still but you worked your magic. You engaged with her so well and kept her interested the whole time, she smiled and pulled funny faces for you. I will definitely be booking you in for her 1st birthday. Thank you again for such lovely photos, I can't wait to send them to my family!
