A professional photographer since 2000, Karen launched her Brighton East studio in 2010. Since then Karen Wilson Photography has distinguished itself as an inviting, comfortable space that produces a stunning array of family and professional portraits.

What a professional photographer does

Everyone has thousands of photos of themselves and their families but you can take a million selfies and never once get a picture of the real you. Ironically, true portraits are rarer than ever before.

At Karen Wilson Photography, we create portraits. Portraits that show not just how you look but who you really are, and what you mean to each other.


We believe that every family should have at least one portrait that they can share with friends and family. A portrait your children will someday share with their own family and say with pride: "this is us."


A good photographer knows how to use her equipment and how to create a professional headshot, but a great photographer also brings a deep appreciation of how to capture an organisation’s culture.

This is the third time we have used Karen to photograph our family. Whether it is because she remembers to bring the bread for the kids to feed the ducks or because she provides a warm and safe environment in her studio, I don't know, but the results are always fantastic! This time at the screening I actually shed a tear, she just got it so right!

Karen's photography skills have been a great asset to my business. A professional photo shoot can be very daunting but her relaxed nature helps you feel comfortable and get the most out of the shoot. Seeing what she could do I have also worked with her on commercial projects and for a family photo shoot too. Her work always exceeds my expectations. I would highly recommend her for your small business, commercial and family photographer!

Karen has done an amazing job taking photos for our furniture business. We've had some problems in the past capturing the right tone of wood and she managed to nail it. Very professional, accommodated all of our requests and timelines. Thanks Karen, you're great to work with and looking forward to future projects together- Bayres Design
