About Me

I’m Charlie Alexander and I take photographs. I take photographs because I think photographs are important. Photographs will tell our story to our grandchildren if only we think to take them. And when family life is so busy and their childhood days fly by so fast, I am here to create those lasting memories.

The biggest honour I have in my job is being a part of welcoming new babies to the world and capturing new families in those hazy early newborn days. I truly adore babies, I see these tiny new humans and everything parents go through to bring them in to the world as so very wonderful and important, so my main passion in photography is capturing them and their journey.

I am a Bachelor of Arts and have further qualifications in photography. I am based in Colchester and work all over Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and London. I work almost exclusively with natural light at my own in-home studio and on location. I am also a mother of three young children. Please take a look at my work and ask me anything!

Thanks for visiting

Charlie 🙂




What clients have to say about me…

“We had a lovely morning at Charlie’s cosy studio for our daughter, Eliza’s photoshoot. Charlie kept us very relaxed with endless mugs of tea, and was very patient and relaxed with Eliza who was determined to fight off sleeping!! We are over the moon with the photographs, totally what we wished for; natural, gorgeous and calm-they really show off Eliza’s personality. We will treasure the photographs forever. We would highly recommend Farlie photography-Charlie is very professional and friendly, and has a wonderful talent!”

“We had a fantastic experience during our shoot – Charlie was amazing with Lily and involved her big sister Emily as much as possible! A truly talented lady! I can’t stop staring at my girls! The photos of Lily and her big sister are beautiful! Could not be happier!!! Charlie captured the most amazing shots! Not only would I recommend Farlie Photography to everyone but I will be returning for some family shots in the near future! Thank you so much!!! Xxx”

“We LOVE our photos and we had the best time at both our shoots! Had the bump-to-baby package and so incredibly pleased with the result! Charlie is amazing at what she does, such a personal touch and she made us all feel so comfortable and at ease on both occasions.
And to not even mention the photos!! It’s more than just amazing, every time I look at the photos of our beautiful little family and our gorgeous little girl and baby boy I’m so grateful that we could capture moments like these, moments of joy and laughter, intimacy and closeness, love and peace and family fun and newborn purity!
Thank you Charlie for making us feel comfortable and so at home in front of the camera, thank you for capturing memories than I’ll treasure forever and now do not have to forget as they are forever captured in your/our beautiful photos … I’m so grateful that you’ve done it with such ease but such perfection.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!”

“Charlie and her photography are just amazing! She captures moments and visions and creates memories in an instant. Charlie was our wedding photographer and her kind nature made us, and our guests, feel so relaxed on the day. Charlie is not a photographer that you need to prep with a long list of what shots you want, for she sees them before you do! It’s magical looking back after your wedding and just thinking WOW she captured it all… and more! From the pre wedding shoot to the delivery of our photos, her service is seamless! I cannot recommend Charlie enough! Thank you!”
