Today's blog post is another 'Just One' image from a busy weekend of children and family photo shoots, this time taken on location in Kensington in West London SW7 and another photograph that I am particularly pleased with.
This was my second photo shoot with Megumi and her lovely family in Kensington and it was so nice to see them all again. When I last visited the family, Seiji was only one month old and we had a wonderful newborn and family shoot with his older siblings in Holland Park W11.
The first years seem to fly by so fast - it seems like yesterday that Seiji was a tiny baby and today he is running around, eating rice cakes and exploring the park with his brother and sister. As a London-based baby children and family photographer, it's so lovely to record these different stages and take pictures that the family will enjoy for years to come - photography is great like that, something that really increases in value over the years as memories become caught up in the pictures. Memories for the family - not of a photo shoot with me - but of the many summer days spent at their local parks, the games they like to play and the cuddles and snuggles that make the bond between parent and child so special.
This image caught my eye as I began to download the memory cards from our shoot. I love the sense of movement and space and, above all, absolute joy. I'm sure children experience things to a totally different level, I don't remember the last time I was that joyous and this is just one moment of many in a morning - oh to be two years old again!
I hope you enjoy this image too and do check back soon to see more from this family and children's photography session in Kensington SW7 in West London.
