Let’s put them in pictures!
Photography that celebrates personality in Brighton & Sussex UK


Located just minutes from Brighton & Hove, Dautlich Photography specialises in modern storytelling portraits for families that value moments from their everyday life.

I grew up with a passion for photography in the Pacific Northwest, USA. I now live with my English husband (we met through our love of photography on instagram!) and daughter in Sussex. You can read more about me here.

I make photographs for people who want authentic images that celebrate their life and personalities. I create heirloom prints and albums that are an alternative to cheesy awkward family photos. View my family photography, newborn photography or maternity photography to see if we’re the right fit for each other with my natural documentary portrait style.

Love Notes

Each and every photograph that April presented to us made us laugh or feel instantly nostalgic. From my little moments spent playing in their bedrooms, to hanging out on our street with our closest friends and neighbours - April entered our world and saw things we miss even as parents in the mad daily rush that is our life. Precious interactions between our boys, knowing glances, a moment of comfort after a fall - it's just an incredible privilege to have these moments to keep forever. It's a common complaint amongst friends that there's always one parent who takes all the family photos, and is therefore never actually in any of them! This session was the one time I made it into any shots with my kids - it's something that I think will mean a lot to them when they get older. I know I wish I had more pictures of me and my mum from when I was little - there are only a handful! - Sian A, family session

The first time we looked at the photos we both had tears in our eyes. The photos of Sylvia are so lovely and her personality really shines through. The photos really capture the feeling of being in our home with our baby and our dogs - a real 'day in our life.'  I know I will love looking back on these in years to come, and it will be great to show Sylvia what things were like when she was a baby! - SARAH P, infant session
