Family photographer in Notting Hill, West London

20Jun

The Family Photography session on the blog today features a fantastic day spent in Notting Hill, West London, W11. I have had the pleasure and good fortune to have done a total of five Children and Family photography sessions for Emma and her beautiful family and each one has been an absolute delight. We always have such a fantastic time. The girls are, and always have been, really great fun to photograph.

For today’s Family Portrait Photography session, we headed to the stunning Ladbroke Square Gardens. This is one of the biggest of the Notting Hill private garden squares. We had an amazing time exploring the different area and playing a variety of exciting games. It was the perfect photographic location.

Emma bought some delicious chocolate eggs with her so we had a slightly out of season Easter egg hunt. Having said that, when is it not the right time to hunt chocolate eggs? The girls absolutely loved it. The expression on their faces as they discovered the eggs was one of pure delight. This made for great pictures.

Whilst playing in the playground, I took the shot of Hannah on the swing. This has to be one of my favourites of the year – her look of joy and happiness is just perfect. It is this expression, combined with the exuberance of the swinging movement, the lovely soft light and dark background, that makes for such a strikingly dramatic portrait.

After the swings, we had a great game of hide and seek. This is always a favourite game of mine as it never fails to produce lovely pictures of happy children having a brilliant time. It’s such fun for me too. I love getting involved in the game, counting to twenty and coming to find the family. ‘Ready or not, here I come….’

A fantastic time was had by all and I’m so thrilled with the pictures. I hope you will like them too – today’s Children and Family photography session from Ladbroke Square in Notting Hill.
