Family Photography at a fireworks party in Holland Park, London W11

19Dec

Holland Park is one of my favorite places to take children’s and family portraits in the whole of London – it is such a beautiful area, and I do like the different coffee options near the tube.

I was thrilled to be asked to visit one of my favorite clients for something a bit different recently (and you can tell we have been busy as the blog is a little behind) – I visited for Bonfire Night to take some portraits of the children as they enjoyed an evening of fireworks in the garden and sparklers, a personal favorite of mine.

I have to say though, that a small child wielding two sparklers like light sabers has to be one of the most terrifying things to photograph. I couldn’t work out if my hat or my hair was more likely to catch fire first – luckily neither, but it felt a close run thing at times!

I love the results – capturing those moments of glee. I do hope you will enjoy this selection of children and family photographs from Holland Park in London, W11 with the addition of firework fun!
