Summer in London – Family Documentary

English Summer weather is quite tricky – we can have literally 4 seasons in one day – but it’s wonderful to have warmer days and to enjoy London parks. My families have been scheduling and re-scheduling in an effort to find a beautiful sunny day but sometimes to wait it’s not possible and we work with what we have. Life goes on and life with children feels that goes even faster.

We are so lucky with this glorious day of sun, the family enjoyed a morning in their garden. This session reminded me of my own children as they have the same age-gap and oh dear it’s not easy! So much fun running after them…

Don’t wait to book your session!

If you want to give a family documentary session 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.

A Day in the Life – Primrose Hill

Documentary family photography has a real power beyond just a “nice” picture to go on the wall. We are creating a heritage for future generations – the ability to look back at what life looked and felt like on that one day, to start conversations between our children and their own grandchildren, long after we have left this world. When you think about it, that is pretty darn cool! This is why I choose to make unposed and undirected family images.

You know that thing that you all do, that feels so perfectly iconic for your family? Your beloved weekly trip to the nearest beautiful London Park. Sunday morning treats and children parties. We are all so busy in this city but some activities you keep doing repeatly because it’s part of you as a family.

It was such fun to capture a Sunday with this delightful family. Their daughter just started to ride her bicycle and it was lovely to have it captured. Little one is so cute and loves to play games joining in whenever he can.

    Home is where your story begins – London Family Photographer

    It’s winter, it’s cold, it’s dark and I was all set to write a post called “10 great reasons you should have your photo session at home”, but then I started pulling images out of my archive of client photos and from my family, and honestly, they speak for themselves. No list of reasons is needed. The proof is in the pictures.

    These images are full of personality, history, tradition, milestones, details, creativity, expression, comfort, laughter, meaning, and above all, love.

    What would you would miss most about your home if you ever had to leave it for good? What milestones have taken place under your roof? What has changed in your house since you moved in? What family traditions take place in your home year after year? What little moments and details do you currently take for granted? One day they will evolve and change, and perhaps even disappear without you realizing.

    These are all the reasons why you should document your story in your home. Your sacred space. Your extension of you.

     

    You can have a look at a beautiful Day in the Life session here, other Day in the Life and  my very own here.
