About Me

I have a kind heart, wise mind, brave spirit and bold faith!

I have always loved photography. I studied film photography at school and as an adult I have always been reaching for my camera. I have an eye for composition, the ability to capture moments as they happen, and an ease of being around others that make them feel relaxed and comfortable. Having grown up in Australia and moving to the UK when I was 18, I have lived so far from home for so long that photographs have always been my connection to my nearest and dearest. It was when I became a mother in 2012 that I reflected on my love of photography and felt pulled to dip my toes into the waters once more. I resigned from a successful career in Mental Health and have spent the last 7 years working as a professional photographer. I started my own business in August 2016 Ella Lacey Photography which has been growing and evolving at a great pace. I travel a lot, work random hours, run around chasing kids with my camera, listen to heart-warming speeches and witness the bonding of brand new families.

Ella Lacey Photography

Kind Words

“I cannot recommend Ella highly enough! Our photoshoot didn’t feel like a photoshoot it felt like a family trip to the beach, the photos were so natural and everything I had wanted! Ella is so kind and caring and didn’t force anything she just let our little one take the lead. I will 100% be using Ella again!
Thank you!

“I had a session with Ella to take some portraits for an upcoming book project. From the moment we met, I felt like Ella really understood my vision, and she was so easy to work with! Not only were the photos perfect and exactly what I wanted, I felt like we had a really nice creative experience during the forest photo shoot. Such a great collaboration, and hope to work with her again! Massively talented and just a genuinely nice and sweet person!!! THANK YOU ELLA!”

“You have beautifully photographed the clothes of Frieda & Paul and at the same time filled the pictures with emotions. I’m already looking forward to the next shoot in autumn with you”

—Freida und Paul

“Ella beautifully captured our wedding last month, we are over the moon with our photos. Overall what stands out is her professionalism - attention to detail, patience, well organised group shots and generally a calming and reassuring presence. Thank you ever so much Ella!”


“Thank you to Ella for creating a fabulous suite of shots for our corporate image library at Research Partnership. Ella was very professional, followed our brief to the letter and was a joy to work with (according to my colleagues who were trying their hardest to misbehave). Would highly recommend Ella for her photographic talents – especially for people shots which I know are her favourite. Keep up the great work!

“Ella recently took some pictures of me for my personal branding. I'm building a business and a website around communication, musician promotion and small event organisation. As you can see it's quite a wide range and really it's all about my strengths, interests and capabilities, so the pictures had to be really honest and very 'me'. I usually prefer to be behind the camera so Ella did a fantastic job of making me feel relaxed and I think the pictures capture that really well.
