Family Photographer, East Grinstead.

Thank you for visiting Pippa Tanko Photography. I am a West Sussex based family photographer with a studio in East Grinstead and I would love to capture your family for you.

I have been capturing families in Sussex, Surrey and Kent for over 15 years and can truly say that I love telling their stories through images. Capturing a moment in time, so that you can look back and remember that moment for years to come, is magical. As our children grow up, it is important to leave a legacy of images that tell our story and help our loved ones remember us.

Family photography is incredibly important to me. Having lost my own father in a car accident when I was young, I only have a handful of photos to remember him by. This is why I want to help families capture those precious moments in time. There are so many milestones in our lives worth capturing, weddings, pregnancy, birth and not to mention our precious children. Newborn babies grow and change so quickly, learning to smile, sit, crawl and then walk.

Inviting a professional photographer to capture these special moments means that not only will you get beautiful photos to share with your friends and family but your children will grow up with a strong sense of belonging having you in the photos with them. Family photography can boost a child’s self esteem. My own children love looking back of photos of us as a family from when they are little.

The page below should provide you with all the information you need for your family photoshoot but if you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

I am often booked up in advance so if you have a particular date in mind please do get in touch as soon as possible.

I look forward to working with you.
