A Heartfelt Family Photography Session in Hyde Park London
Summer is here and this year, in particular, I have lots of clients leaving London. Living in central London is absolutely wonderful and this family wanted to capture their morning in their home but especially their nearby park. Nothing like a family photography session in Hyde Park. The green was so lush that it came out almost like an electric green!
It’s been 11 years I have been living in London and it is still my favourite city to live. The reason why I love London this much? Mainly because when you live there, every day, you feel like you are travelling the entire world without boarding a plane. Just simply by crossing the city by bus or tube, you will have the opportunity to see people from all over the world.
Despite the pollution, London is one of the greenest cities in the world and there are around eight million trees in London. Can you imagine that 47% of the capital is covered in green space? That’s about half of the city!
I could go on and on about why I love so much London (maybe I will do a post about it) but definitely, it’s because its people.
It was lovely to meet this family and I am sure they will miss London and cherish these photos for many years to come.
I hope you enjoy this pictures from a family photography session in Hyde Park, London.
I’m Ana Ruivo – an award-winning London family photographer. I am specialized in family and baby photography. Since 2013 I have photographed hundreds of clients from all over the world, all the UK and the USA, Spain, France, Portugal, New Zealand, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, UAE and Hong Kong.
My view of documentary family and baby photography is that it is unscripted, unposed, and records what happens naturally. I’ll come to your home, or meet you at the park or at brunch, wherever you choose, and just take photos as you and your family or friends interact just as you would on a day when a photographer was not present. I will not ask you to pose, sit still, “say cheese”, or pretend anything. There is no pretending, this is your life, documented. Let the kids be kids, Dad does his thing, and Mum just enjoy the experience.
I want these photos to capture the true essence of your family, your relationships, the stage of your life you are currently experiencing. I want it to be real, in all its tantrum-ing, messy, teary, silly, beautiful glory. I want to capture this chapter in your story so that you can look and remember exactly how it looked and felt at this very moment.
Your family has a story, many stories actually to tell, and I believe they should be preserved.
