Kensington and Holland Park children’s and family photographer

25Nov

One of my favourite places in London to take family photographs and children’s portraits is Holland Park and Kensington in West London. It is such a beautiful part of the world (and has such a great array of coffee shops, not to mention a fine Waterstones for picking up a paperback on the way home).

I was thrilled to meet Oliver and Katja to take some photographs of their beautiful children and family in their Kensington home. I was also excited to see what a talented photographer Oliver is himself – he had some pictures of brown bears taken in Finland that are the equal of anything I have seen elsewhere. So, after looking through Oliver’s pictures, I felt inspired for the morning. I knew we were going to take some wonderful children and family portrait photographs.

We started taking pictures in their beautiful Kensington home – the children sat on the rocking horse is a particular favourite from the day – and then headed out to Holland Park for a run around in the lovely autumn weather.

I am thrilled with the pictures from our family and child photo shoot in West London, W8. I hope you will enjoy them too, especially the last image – my homage to the great W. Eugene Smith.
