About Louise

Louise believes…Photography is about passion…

Portrait Photography is about the desire to give the client a piece of individual artwork that you have created, that portrays their love, emotion, passion and personality, whilst using all your skill as a photographer to pull it all together…in conjunction with lighting and shape, all in a split second of a shutter exposure, whilst you enjoy every moment of it!

…Feel the passion and you’ll get the shot!

About Louise

Photography by Louise Studios Ltd opened it’s doors on St Andrew Street, Hertford in 2002 and had a proven track record of delivering portraiture of the highest quality.

Due to the 2020 Covid Crisis, Louise took the brave and very pro-active decision to close the physical high street studio that she so adored working in. As she felt it was better for the business to survive in a smaller way than to drown under the strain of the Covid lockdowns.

So the office side of the Studio has been re-located to Louise’s home With the in-studio sessions now on selected weekends during the year at a Studio she now rents at Dicker Mill in Hertford.

Louise has been immersed in photography her whole life due to being the proud daughter of wedding and portrait photographers Peter and Pam Dyer. She realised her passion for the art at 14 years of age developing prints in the darkroom at her family home. She then moved on to an apprenticeship with Paul Kaye Studios of London where she was classically trained as a portrait photographer.

In 1991 Louise began her first sole trading company, PhotO’G Studios. She has since earned an Associateship with the British Institute of Professional Photographers and joined the Professional Photographers of America.

For Louise portraiture is about creating stunning images that capture a moment in time, so that over the years clients are able to build a collection of images that tell the story of their lives.

How it all Began…

When she was 14 years old Louise was given some advice by a family friend who was unhappy in his job. “Promise me you will do a job you love,” he said. And she did. It was then that Louise, decided to follow in her parents’ footsteps and pursue her passion for photography. Three decades later she happily recalls that advice as the best she was ever given. “It was the catalyst that started me on this journey, and I am fortunate to be able to say I truly love what I do.” That passion shines through in all of Louise’s work. From capturing a baby’s first smile to documenting families as they change and grow, Louise’s passion for her craft translates into photographs that tell the stories of peoples’ lives.

Louise’s enthusiasm for her work extends well beyond the studio walls. She sets aside time each year to travel, photographing other cultures and pursuing her other passion in life – motorbiking.

Giving Back

At Photography by Louise we take pride in building strong, long-term relationships with our clients and often photograph families for generations. We help celebrate their lives by capturing the beauty of the happy moments. Over the years our Studio’s founder, Louise, has also captured some of life’s more difficult moments through her volunteer work with the charity Remember my Baby that helps families who lose a child at birth. Louise realised her photographic skills could be used to give grieving families some comfort in such horrid times. Often a moment captured in time can provide solace for years to come. It is in this way that we as a studio use the power of photography to give back to our community. Photographing the terminally ill with their loved ones – be it children, parents or grandparents – helps to capture their love in order to hold it precious forever.

We are happy to help support local charities.

But Louise does other stuff too..She is off-road Motorbiking Mad .

In late 2020 Louise qualified as an Off-road motorbike instructor. She specialises in teaching ladies the art of riding an off-road motorbike with ease in groups as well as 1-2-1 instruction at the Sweet Lamb complex in Mid Wales.
