Beautiful children’s and family photography in Canary Wharf, London E14


Canary Wharf and Docklands Family Photographer

Hi, welcome to my blog, I’m a family photographer based in London, and I’ve been photographing babies and families in Canary Wharf since 2003. In that time, I’ve photographed thousands of children and we’ve had such a lot of fun along the way. I hope you will choose me to photograph your family in Canary Wharf and I can create a beautiful set of images for you to enjoy for many years to come.

What can I offer to you for your Canary Wharf family photography session?

I can offer you a lot of fun. My business is based on returning customers and the many happy clients returning year on year stand testament to the enjoyable nature of the photo shoot. They are relaxed and fun mornings – working around your children’s schedules to ensure they get their morning naps as normal, while starting early to get them at their best and brightest – we have a brilliant time together.

You choose your favourite things to do as a family whether that’s out and about or at home in your house or flat. Anything goes on a photo shoot from indoor activities like reading books and Lego, or hide and seek and jumping on the bed, to outdoor explorations kicking a football around, mud-larking by the river or exploring the area and including some of the incredible architecture of the docklands in our family photo shoot. The choice is yours; I work around your family doing your favourite things to create timeless and stylish images that are completely unique to you.

What can you expect from your family photo shoot in Canary Wharf and Docklands

After a brilliant day together having fun you can expect a selection of around 70 beautiful black and white images to choose from. Black and white is the perfect medium for family photography as it’s completely timeless while also always having a modern fee. Images will look fantastic and contemporary now but also won’t date as the years go by. With black and white images you always focus on the people, the interactions, the emotions, the important things that we all want to remember.

These images will be a wonderful selection and include some family group shots (but don’t worry, we won’t spend hours posing for the camera, I take these quickly and then we get back to the important business of playing and having fun). I’ll also make sure to take individual portraits of all your children as well as those wonderful interacting shots which are often everyone’s favourites, images that capture personality and the bonds between siblings. Parents are included in images as you all enjoy yourselves together, flattering images that show your love for your children and their love for you, the images that as adults we treasure of our own parents. There’s a wide variety of images and I know you will love them all.

After your baby and family photo shoot in Canary Wharf

After your baby and family photography session I’ll process your images and then my colleague will visit you at home to show you the pictures. This is designed to make everything as easy as possible for you as I know how busy parent of young children are. The viewing sessions are always a joy, and you can sit back and see the images on a nice big screen at a time that is convenient for you. We offer a wide variety of frames and wall products which are all museum quality as well as fine art prints, heirloom albums and, of course, the digital files. Having the viewing in your own home also allows the opportunity to measure walls and make sure everything is perfect for your space, it’s the full service from start to finish.

Helen has been taking photographs of our children for many years now and I can’t imagine ever asking her to stop. Not only is she wonderful with the children but the results are always truly outstanding. We have a house covered with extraordinary, striking, unique and beautiful images of our family thanks to Helen. I could not recommend her more highly.

A family photo shoot in Canary Wharf from the archives

As a London-based photographer specialising in beautiful relaxed children and family portrait photography in London, I was thrilled to jump on the DLR to Canary Wharf, London E14 to meet Lara and take some pictures of her beautiful family.

We had a wonderful time exploring Canary Wharf while taking family portraits and lots of pictures of Lara’s beautiful little boy as he played in the many water features and showed off his new walking skills. It was also great to include some of the stunning local architecture in the pictures.

We had such a wonderful time and I hope that you will agree this is a stunning set of beautiful relaxed family portrait photographs from our children’s photography session in Canary Wharf.
