Fun family photography is not easy to come by if you are only looking for a family portrait session. Adding the documentary approach to my lifestyle photo sessions allows my clients to have a taste of all the amazing benefits that documentary photography can do to enrich their family albums. Unposed moments, real emotions and authentic connection are all captured.
Fun Family Photography in London
This lovely and joyful family were leaving soon to New Zealand, and they wanted to capture their home before leaving. This was the perfect moment to make photographs to remember forever, not only beautiful portraits by their doorstep but also the sweet in-between moments, their daughters’ interactions and of course their lovely home. I always love to incorporate my client’s home in the family photoshoots. It’s the place where they are often the most comfortable, and it’s reflected in the relaxed, real-life, documentary imagery.
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.
I hope you like this lifestyle family photography session where I incorporated a documentary approach. If you would like to know more about Documentary Family Photography check it here. I am a proud member of the Documentary Family Photographers Association.
West London Fun Family Photography
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.
