Family Photographer Camden


Family photography that is all about you

Today on the blog I want to share some more information Family Photography in Camden. Camden is a brilliant area for photography with stunning parks from the family friendly Waterlow Park in Highgate, to beautiful Regents Park, or the wilds of Hampstead Heath. Whatever your children love to do, and wherever they love to do it, we can create the perfect Camden family photo shoot around your children’s favourite activities which will result in beautiful photographs that are full of memories.

My style of family photography in Camden

I specialise in natural style family photographs all in black and white. Shooting in a documentary fashion you get to enjoy a family day while I take pictures of you all enjoying yourselves. I also, of course, make sure to take a few relaxed family group shots over the course of a morning so you end up with a beautiful and varied set of images including pictures with you all in, individual portraits, and stunning shots as everyone plays and interacts together.

With twenty years’ experience photographing children and families you can be sure of a brilliant set of pictures whatever the day throws at us, and I know as well as anyone that children are unpredictable. Over the years I’ve worked out brilliant techniques to get the very best from children whether they are boisterous and excited, or quiet and shy, and everything in between. The day is all about you and your children and I work hard to ensure they are completely comfortable and have a brilliant time.

A love of creativity in composition, of graphic imagery, and the challenges of using light mean that images will surpass your expectations and be completely unique to your family, images that you and your children will love for many years to come.

I work exclusively in black and white for all my family photography work and this will ensure that your Camden family photographs will look as good when your children are grown ups as they do now. Fashions in clothing or interior design will fade to the background and instead we can focus on expression and interaction, on relationships and love. Do spend some time browsing my website to see the type and variety of work I produce.

How do Camden family photography sessions work?

My family photography sessions are really relaxed and a lot of fun. I would visit you at your Camden home, arriving nice and early as I find that children are at their best first thing. Choosing a relaxed approach, I spend a full morning with you, usually from around 8am until about 1pm (or whenever you have lunch). I find that taking our time allows everyone to relax and the children to really enjoy themselves. Having the whole morning also means we have lots of flexibility, if you have younger children then they can have their morning nap as normal so you don’t disrupt your routine. It also means we can use more than one location and I often do half my photography session in one of Camden’s beautiful parks and the other half in my clients Camden home. This way you get fantastic variety to your family photographs and pictures that have very different feels to them. I find this works really well for the children too giving them pictures that are so full of memories, both of the parks and playgrounds where they love to play, but also images of their home and favourite toys, pictures that will be so special as they grow up.

How much are Camden family photography sessions?

My family photography sessions are based around a session fee for the time on the day and then albums, frames and digital files purchased after your shoot at your viewing session. The service is designed to make your life easy as I know how busy parents always are and so we offer an at-home viewing service as well as help with designing layouts of frames or other products to your exact specifications. All our frames are handmade and prints are archival quality and printed on beautiful fine art paper. Our stunning albums are superb quality and can be handed down the generations with pride. For a full price list please take a look at the prices page on the website or get in touch if you would like me to chat anything through.
