On this dark and cold London day, Autumn looks so far away now, but this family photoshoot warms my heart.
This is the year, more than any other before, we see how important are the moments with our family and close ones. The little moments in between in our daily lives, the closeness and connection with our children are one thing we sometimes forget to capture and it is the most important to remember.

If you want to give a family photoshoot a try, or if you have any questions about these types of sessions, please drop me a note – I’d love to continue the conversation.
I’m Ana Ruivo – an award-winning London family photographer. 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 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 do 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.
