Arranging a family photo shoot when you visit London

08Jun

If you are thinking of arranging a family photo shoot when you are visiting London then I am the photographer for you. With years of experience photographing children and families and encyclopedic knowledge of all the best locations for family photographs in the UK capital city you can be sure of a fantastic day and a brilliant set of pictures.

Shamsa visited London for her family vacation and was keen to arrange a portrait session for her five children. I suggested nearby St James Park as a great place to go, it was near the hotel and has lots of variety for beautiful pictures. We didn’t want to go too far afield as we needed to fit around nap times for the baby and so this worked perfectly.

We spent a wonderful morning together enjoying the early summer weather and the kids had a lovely time running around and playing games. As on all my photo shoots we did a mix of very relaxed documentary style photography whilst also ensuring that I got pictures of all the children together – no mean feat with five kids! I feel it’s important to get a mix of portraits and documentary images to provide the best set of pictures for my clients.

Stunning black and white photography means that the images will stand the test of time and careful use of light and creative compositions ensure a really varied set of pictures. As you can see from the children’s expressions we all had an amazing time.

If you are keen to have family photographs taken when you visit London for your summer holiday or family vacation then do get in touch – we can go to a park like we did for Shamsa’s shoot or we could visit some of London’s famous landmarks for our photo shoot or a combination of the two, you can read about some of the many options open to us on my London vacation photography page. Drop me an email or give me a call and we can have a chat about your family and what would be best for you, each photo shoot is unique and I can’t wait for yours!
