Children’s and family portrait photographer in Islington, North London

04Jul

Today I am posting a few more pictures from Debbie’s fabulous children’s and family portrait photography session in Islington, London N1. As a North London-based children and family photographer, it was lovely to visit a family so close to my home in Crouch End and, as always, it was wonderful to revisit a family who I had first visited a few years ago. When all these elements combine, I’m like a kid in a candy shop.

After a blissful ten minute journey on the train, I arrived at Debbie’s house full of the joys of spring and ready for our children and family photo shoot. I was greeted by two incredibly excited little girls, full of smiles and laughter and I knew we were going to have a fabulous morning, and by golly we did.

We spent most of the morning outdoors in the garden playing – it’s such a perk of my job to spend so much time just playing. All the little things that are so much fun when you are children seem to be forgotten in young adulthood, only to be remembered when the next generation come along and those simple pleasures are revisited – games of chase, skipping and jumping, checking who likes butter by the accurate buttercup test (it might not pass a peer review in a medical journal, but oh so much more fun). All these things are such wonderful fun – I’ll wager nobody can keep a smile from their face when an earnest three year old does the buttercup test.

We took so many lovely children and family photographs out in the garden of Debbie’s Islington home and, before we finished for lunch, we thought we would capture some pictures indoors too. Debbie has such a beautiful home that is so full of light, it was a perfect backdrop for these family portraits, especially the wonderful big windows that look out over North London and provided magical light for our beautiful photographs. I had the best time and I’m thrilled with the pictures. I hope you enjoy this selection of children and family photos taken on-location in Islington, North London.

If you would like me to capture some pictures of your own family, please contact us – we would be delighted to hear from you.
