Relaxed Family Portraits – London Photographer

This was my second shoot with Nicole and her gorgeous family. The first one was when they lived in London and had just 1 boy. Now they have 3 and have moved to the countryside. Sevenoaks is the countryside right?!

It was so lovely to see them all enjoying the hot summer in their huge garden. The bigger boys face planting the trampoline whilst the small one slept peacefully in the shade of the playroom. These guys are living the dream and if they happen to come into any trouble they have their very own superhero/s to save the day.

These are my most favourite kind of photo sessions. Relaxed and fun and it feels like seeing old friends.

Nicole has a lovely blog that you should check out full of poems and other lovely things about parenthood and life.

Thanks for stopping by, do say hello, I’d love to hear from you!

Dulwich Family Photographer

Kicking off the year with a family session in Dulwich, no room is left out when it comes to shooting in your home. As the kitchen is the central hub to most homes it’s only right we take some shots in there too.

Freja turned 1 on the day of her second portrait session with me. This birthday photo session started off outdoors but it was freezing so we took shelter in The Maritime Museum. I got down on the floor with her and grabbed this shot as she flew over to me on her hands and knees.

When you tun up to a photo session and both parents are musicians, I couldn’t leave without hearing a tune…

We took a stroll soon after the spontaneous family gig and this happened. I love the movement and textures in this shot

Easily, one of my all time favourite shots, not just from the past year. The intimate connection here only happens when everyone lets go, forgets why they’re there and just embraces the moment. The squishy baby face, the protective arm, the tender kiss, the doting look. I can’t ask for anything more in a family photo.

Kent Beach Family Photographer

I met Sean over a year ago, we both attended a photography workshop in Norwich and kept in touch afterwards. In fact the whole group did and we’ve met up a few times since. Sean is an amazing wildlife and wedding photographer, of course he has many, many gorgeous pictures of his daughter and wife though not many with him in! This is a common thing for us photographers, and not just the professionals, I’m sure within your family there’s one person that is always taking the pictures. When you’re that person, you don’t mind because you love taking photos but you soon come to realise that if you’re ever going to be in the photo yourself you’ll have to ask! That’s exactly what Sean has done, he asked me to take some family photos. I was honoured and a bit terrified I must admit.

I shouldn’t have worried at all, it was just like hanging out with good friends for the day and all he was worried about was being in the picture for a change. I met them at their home in Sittingbourne where we got a few shots in before setting off to Botany Bay. The sun was splitting the trees! It was challenging because it was so incredibly sunny but I wouldn’t have had it any other way – it was perfect for a beach shoot. Slightly less wind would have been welcomed but it made it fun!

There was sand everywhere, windswept hair and very wet feet (we’ll say no more Sean), but choosing to have a beach family photo session meant we got some stunning photos that these guys will treasure forever. I conscious that that phrase can seem over used within the family photography industry but they truly will be around forever and when Sienna groups up they’ll mean the world to her.
