Welcome to Piccolino Photo Studio



I am based in BECKENHAM and specialise in family photography in and around BROMLEY, SOUTH LONDON AND SURROUNDing AREAS


Hi! I'm Francesca from Piccolino Photo Studio. I'm a family photographer in Beckenham. I've been a photographer since 2007 and I simply love to photograph family life so you have beautiful portraits to enjoy for many years.  I'm originally from Italy, but the UK has been my home for 19 years now. I'm also a busy mum of two very active boys, and the wife of a lovely man, who's been supporting me in my career from the start and through its ups and downs. I love coffee, cooking (I never miss my Saturday night pizza!) watching films on the sofa and spending time with friends, maybe around a table with plenty of food and drinks.

I specialise in a candid and natural style of photography


Whether I’m photographing families or weddings I seek out those spontaneous moments which are the essence of a feeling or the mood of a moment.


When you are looking for the right family photographer for you, you will see many styles: some photographers pose families in a studio whereas some, like me, specialise in more natural photography, to record informal moments in familiar environments. 

Before we begin, I ensure my clients are comfortable before I pick up my camera - particularly when I’m working with children. As a mum of two, I’ve experienced first-hand the endless photo opportunities kids present when they’re exploring their world and the surrounding things. So I don’t try to engineer poses that aren’t authentic, I just take the time to help familiarise them with their surroundings so that I can capture them at their natural and spontaneous best!

I want people to relax and feel comfortable with me, and it's important to me that you enjoy yourselves. 

Weddings are also a big part of my business so if you are looking for a documentary wedding photographer have a look at my work on my wedding website.

Whether I’m photographing an intimate family moment or a boisterous wedding crowd, I am passionate about finding those real moments which perfectly capture feelings and emotions to make these moments last forever so that you can re-live the same emotions when you look at your family pictures.  If you are looking for a Family Photographer in Beckenham, Bromley or London,  I would love to hear from you.
