Family Photography in Parsons Green SW6


Parsons Green for Family Photography

It’s always such a pleasure to head across to Parsons Green in West London and see some of my favourite clients and this shoot, our twenty-second session, was a joy from start to finish.  Over the past nine years we have built an amazing document of these wonderful children’s lives taking in their favourite places and activities and building our friendship alongside their family albums.  This is, without a doubt, the best part of my job, seeing the children grow up and celebrating their lives in photographs while building these wonderful relationships.  So, it was with a spring in my step, I jumped in a cab over to Parsons Green in West London for our family photography session to catch up and create a new set of images full of memories for the family.

Indoor Pictures on my Parsons Green Family Photography Session

As has been the case so often these last couple of months we had mixed weather for our family photo shoot and, as has also so often been the case this has resulted in a fantastic set of images full of variety with indoor and outdoor pictures.  I love photographing indoors for part of my sessions as this is where so much of family life takes place, children will have favourite games – indoor lazer quest for example – what a brilliant way to while away some time while it rains.  There are also all the details of architecture and design, elements that can be incorporated into images to add a sense of place to the pictures.  I love the idea that when the children look back at these images in years to come little details will transport them back as they remember their childhood home in Parsons Green West London through these family photographs.


Parks and Playgrounds for Creative Images

There were breaks in the weather of course and we headed out into the local area looking for adventure. This time we didn’t get as far as Fulham Palace or Bishops Park instead enjoying the local fun for our family photographs on Parsons Green and other nearby playgrounds. The kids had a brilliant time playing and I had a brilliant time finding interesting viewpoints for creative images, capturing their sense of adventure and excitement in beautiful black and white photographs. Playgrounds are such a fun place for family photography and such a creative challenge for me as a photographer – how to take pictures that sum up the moment but also which don’t include any other children in the shot. I like to explore angles and creative camera techniques as well as using the best lenses with wide apertures to isolate my subjects. Almost twenty years of experience photographing children all over London has given me a wealth of techniques I can draw on to create wonderful family photographs.
