MEET OUR TEAM

from our family to yours…

Lilly

Photographer and Retoucher

Cat obsessed, tap dancing explorer (who takes amazing travel photos) has worked at the studio for just over 5 years. Blossoming into an award winning photographer, she has a passion for couple photo shoots and is very talented at calming newborn babies! Currently studying for her Fellowship with the MPA she is busy with an exciting new project.

‘I love creative editing and producing something unique for each session I shoot, but the best bit is seeing the final product ready to hang on the wall.’

Ray

Owner and Photographer

What we can we say about Ray? Not only does he have a wealth of knowledge spanning almost 50 years, he is passionate about Photography and training photographers to be the very best they can be. Outspoken and loud, our resident Santa Ray is a well-known face not only in Cheshunt but in the Photographic industry. He loves a piece of lemon drizzle cake and on his days off will be taking a nice slow amble around the golf course. 

Current Chairman of the Master Photographers Association he is busy mentoring photographers and shooting commercial and industrial jobs – his real passion!

‘We have now been in the same studio in Cheshunt for 44 years and I am extremely proud that It continues to provide outstanding photography and personal service to all families that visit us.’

Karen

Cherubs Photographer

Apart from Ray, Karen is the longest serving member at the studio. Celebrating a whopping 30 years here this year she joined straight from school and has been here ever since. She is our resident Cherubs Photographer she has taken photos of over 16,000 babies during her time here. When she isn’t spending time with babies, she is busy looking after her two teenagers – never a dull moment!

‘It is such a lovely part of my job seeing the babies I have taken photos of come back year after year and seeing them grow.'

Abbie

Photographer

Abbie is the newest member of the Ray Lowe Studios Team but is already making waves in the photographic industry. She is a festival loving beach babe and when not at work is busy taking lifestyle photos and reading fashion blogs. She is currently studying towards her next photographic qualification with the MPA.

‘Newborn Sessions are my absolute favourite. I love spending time with babies plus I get to have cuddles too!

Kristy

Studio Manager

Unless you can’t tell, (everyone says they look alike!) Kristy is Ray’s daughter and took over the operating of the business over 13 years ago. Responsible for the overall running of the studio she first started working at the studio as a teenager, sticking stamps on letters and making tea! Mum to five year old Darcy (who is the apple of Ray’s eye) she is a total foodie, loves to travel and spend time with her family.

‘My job is to ensure our clients enjoy their experience at the studio from beginning to end. It is so important to us that it is fun, enjoyable and memorable.’

Lindsey

Baking queen Lindsey (who makes the best coconut icing) has just celebrated 10 years working at the studio. Currently writing her own children’s book inspired by her gorgeous 3 year old Otto, she has numerous photography awards under her belt. She is now working on a new and exciting fashion based project which will be unveiled later this year. Watch this space!

‘I absolutely love shooting Pet Sessions! Having two crazy dogs of my own means I know exactly how to get the best from them.’

Anna

Booking Coordinator

What would we do without Anna? She works tirelessly to make sure the office (and staff!) are in tip top order and the studio diary perfectly organised. She is the friendly face you will most likely see when you walk through the door. Constantly feeding us up with her amazing tiramisu, she can usually be found spending time at the weekend with her gorgeous family.

‘Coming along for a session can be daunting sometimes but I am on hand to answer any questions you may have…no matter how silly they seem!

Katie

Booking Coordinator

Family orientated, puzzle loving Katie (who is also a mean karaoke singer) is the friendly voice you will hear when calling the studio. She is Mum to adorable two year old Archer and is a big fan of our Cake Smash sessions.

'Finding a time to suit all members of the family can be tricky, but I’m on hand to find a session time to suit you and give you some handy hints and tips on what to bring along.

Emma

Office Administrator

Ultra organised, Disney enthusiast Emma is the person you will see if you visit the studio at the weekend. Besides her day job she is also an active NCT member and mum to two adorable little ones. She also loves being in front of the camera and can quite often be found modelling for our photography courses.

‘One of the best bits of my role is that I get to show customers their finished work when they come to collect, their reactions are just lovely to see.’
