Former Garden House School Girl Flo Brooks runs a successful photography business, established in 2016 specialising in luxury and sporting events, children’s parties and portraits of children and
recently has been working on various projects at Garden House.
Flo’s work has been featured in the new Garden House Prospectus which was published late last year and a number of her images have been used to enhance and refresh the School website. Flo captured the enthusiasm and energy of the Christmas Carol Services and the restrained grace of our 2017 School Remembrance Day Service.
All these photos are available for viewing on the Garden House website – Parents’ Page – School Events. Flo is booked to photograph Shakespeare in the Spring.

Flo is professional photographer with ten years’ photographic experience. In 2008 Flo was recognised as one of the top ten photographers in the country in her age group.
