Why book a photoshoot with me?

With the cameras on our phones, it’s so quick and easy to take photos - and we do. Of celebrations, days out, holidays and all of that fun stuff.

But photographing how you feel.
That is what I love to do.

Remembering how your baby feels in your arms, the way your child plays with your hair, or the feeling of the breeze as ran past you. These fleeting moments pass so quickly that they’re gone before you can record them.

 

Please don’t wait until you feel your house is ‘insta-worthy’, or until you feel ‘photoshoot ready’. They will grow between now and then. These are the days right now. All I need is you with your loved ones. When you connect with the people that you love, I promise, you will look radiant and any sign of clutter will fade into the background.

 
The fun we had in the session pours out of the photos. There is such a sense of the pure joy of childhood, laughter and happiness that Chui has given us in the photos. We smile when we look at them and will cherish them.
— Vanessa Biggin
 
 

If you could freeze time right now, what feelings would you like to remember about this time? What would you like your children to remember about their childhood, and what would you like your children to remember about you?

Let me capture it for you, so that you can treasure these moments forever.

 

Where shall we hold your shoot?

Cheltenham Photographer Chui King Li Photography-9247.jpg

For newborn sessions, I visit you in the comfort of your own home, surrounded by cuddles and everything that you need. I will capture individual portraits of your baby, you all as a family, and the lovely moments in between!

I’m a strong believer of family photoshoots at your home. So much time is spent here, everyone is relaxed and it is such a wonderful way of jogging the memories of the house in which your children grew up. The bonus of this is that because these photos are taken in your home - they will automatically match your decor!

Having said that, if there is something that you really love doing as a family, or somewhere that you love to go, I believe in capturing you in your happy space. Whether it’s a particular walk or a park that you go to, a favourite coffee shop, or a family tradition - I’d love to join you wherever that is.

My photoshoots last for approximately 1-1.5 hours (2 hours for newborn sessions). This will allow enough time to create and capture the moments with natural smiles and details, showing the true connections of your family, and using natural light to enhance your images.

 
When Chui photographed our family, she surpassed our expectations. She captured the most beautiful family moments and made the day one to remember with lots of fun and laughter.

Happy Clients

It makes my heart so happy to hear when my clients have enjoyed their photoshoot and adore their photos! Here are a few testimonials from some happy customers!


Cheltenham Photographer Chui King Li Photography--72.jpg

Winter Family Photoshoot, Cheltenham

“ I am working since 13 years as a professional fashion model and am particularly "picky" about pictures and I was so glad when I found Chui. Thanks to Chui´s kind, caring, patient and sweet character and thanks to her professional approach and talent we got AMAZING results. She is really a fantastic photographer! Everything was so easy with her and she captures such natural and lively pictures. They are fresh, fun, cool and not posed at all. I absolutely adore her photographer style. This is what you want when you look for a modern capture of your family. I can absolutely recommend her. She is the best you will find in the Cotswolds! I promise :) ” Bridget

“Chui really puts yourself and your family at ease right away resulting in the most beautiful, natural photographs in stunning settings. You will not be disappointed. Chui plays with the children to make them comfortable and to make the experience fun for everyone involved. So pleased with our photos that we purchased the whole gallery!” Lara

“ To have someone in your home with your new baby is a big deal and Chui was absolutely incredible. She put us at ease and we immediately knew we'd picked the right person to take our photographs. We are so pleased with them and can't recommend Chui highly enough. She is dynamic and talented and passionate about her work. She clearly loves meeting new families and understands how special all the little moments are, and how to capture all the details you don't want to forget. We will definitely be booking her again in the future!” Katy

“We had such a lovely time on our afternoon out with Chui. We all felt at ease and the children adored Chui, chatting away to her as if they’d know her forever. The images are amazing and we are going to have a very tough job trying to decide which ones to print! Thank you so much Chui. Xx” Steph

“Chui is wonderful photographer!! We had a family & maternity photo shoot with her, it was our first time to have a photo session in UK so we were a bit nervous at the beginning, but as soon as we met her, all our family were really relaxed, and had great time with her. My daughter, 5 yrs old liked her very much so that she showed her best smile in the photos...!!! All of her photos are very gorgeous and professional, I recommend her from bottom of my heart! Thank you very much Chui!!”


Newborn Twins and Family photoshoot at home, Cirencester

Newborn Twins Photoshoot at Home, Cirencester

We could not have loved having our family photos taken by Chui more. She has such a natural eye for the special moments that no-one else sees and can get the best out of the most camera shy subject! She came to photograph our home life with newborn twins and our feisty three year old. You can imagine that we felt our life was a bit chaotic and messy and crazy - but she made it look happy and warm and joyful. We always thought a family shoot would be really cheesy, but the photos Chui took were extraordinary, our house looked beautiful, we looked happy, our children looked adorable. It was a day I won't forget - and we have the photos to always remind us. Thank you Chui for capturing such a special time for us with such care and precision. You are amazing. Xx

Newborn Baby Photoshoot, Gloucester Royal Hospital

“Chui visited us in the hospital the morning after I'd had our third little one and captured the moment our two older boys came in to meet their brand new baby brother. He was less than 24 hours old and I was in a bit of a haze having just had a c-section. I certainly didn't feel like I was looking my best ready for a photo shoot! Chui put us all at ease, managing to capture this personal and private moment without it feeling intrusive and took the most incredible photos! Thanks to Chui's talent, we've got the most wonderful keepsake of the time our third baby came into this world, the moment our three beautiful boys met each other and some lovely shots of me and Daddy with our gorgeous new bundle! Chui focuses on capturing moments and takes very natural shots, we'll be booking her in again soon for an outdoor photo shoot. I can't recommend her enough!

Winter Family Photoshoot, Cheltenham

“Our family would recommend Chui 100%. She is totally professional but relaxed and really brilliant with our two children- 11 & 6. We had such a great afternoon in the rain- so glad your kit wasn’t damaged! Thank you for persevering with the weather- it rained on our wedding day at the same venue so it was perfect for what we wanted to capture. Chui puts a lot of physical as well as creative effort in to achieve just the right shot - Fraser said you weren’t as bossy as he thought you would be! (You weren’t at all bossy!) You managed to chill the kids out which made for relaxed gorgeous shots which are just what we wanted. I was worried it would be an expensive indulgence but after seeing another shoot you did of my sister in laws family (also amazing and how highly she recommended you) I am really chuffed I contacted you and pleasantly surprised by the price. Thank you for lush photos, a fab afternoon and some great memories revisited.” Victoria

Autumn Family Photoshoot, Pittville Park

“We are so thankful to Chui for the photographs that she took of us a family. She is incredibly professional and it felt so natural having her with us for the morning. Our 3 year old couldn't bear saying goodbye to her at the end of the photo shoot. We love these photos because she caught so many natural moments between us all and has such an eye for detail, making the most of the surroundings and the light. I can't speak highly enough of her and I'm sure we'll be contacting her again in the future for a repeat in a few years.” Sally


Vanessa_ChuiKingLiPhotography-8089.jpg

Autumn Outdoor Photoshoot, Cheltenham

“We asked Chui to take some photos of us as we hadn’t had any pro shots done since our daughter was a baby. Chui organised the location; we were very lucky with the weather (thanks for organising that Chui!) and she captured the light so beautifully. The photos have absolutely exceeded our expectations. They have captured the fun we had in the session and in turn we feel that this means that it pours out of the photos. There is such a sense of the pure joy of childhood, laughter and happiness that Chui has given us in the photos. We smile when we look at them and will cherish them.” Vanessa


Family Christmas Tree Photoshoot Cheltenham

Family Christmas Tree Session, Dowdeswell

“Chui is brilliant at putting the whole family at ease and gives the perfect amount of direction whilst remaining friendly and fun. Thanks to her relaxed attitude and ability to put us at ease we got some fabulous photos that we will treasure for life.

It takes a lot to be really good at family photo shoots, you need to have vision, be able to give clear directions, to put people at their ease, to engage with children and take amazing photos. Chui ticks all those boxes!”

“Chui not only takes fabulous photographs, she also captures the smallest moments and shows the beauty in the tiny exchanges that otherwise go unnoticed. She's a natural with children and always manages to capture the playful energy of our daughter (even when she's being uncooperative!) as well as the precious intimacy of those first days with a new baby. 
Her family portraits of us are gorgeous - natural, relaxed and full of love and humour. We will treasure them.” Celia
