Fun and urban London family photography
Often when people think about family photography, it’s in their home or out in the countryside, creating the rural idyllic image and I do enjoy these sessions, however I love London family photography. Embracing the colourful urban landscape that is our city, there are so many great places to take photos of your children or even with you all as a family.
It’s easy to forget what’s all around us in London; there are beautiful doorways, funky graffiti patterns and lots of awesome textures. These all make for awesome backdrops for your images, whether you want to venture into the West End, love exploring the markets of the East End or enjoy moseying along the river, enjoy all London has to offer and capture your family in this fabulous environment.
The main thing really, when planning a shoot with your family is to make sure the environment is engaging, that it reflects the personalities of you all. And if it’s for a special occasion then find hints of that to highlight the meaning, such as a number on a wall to represent a recent birthday, or having the shoot in a place that’s special to you like a favourite coffee shop or park.
Our lifestyle shoots are all about capturing you as a family, about filling your house with memories of who you all are. It’s not about stuffy portraits with you all smiling inanely at the camera, it’s about having fun and giggling at inside jokes and if it’s been raining, jumping in puddles!
While younger children like to have fun, and for those growing up and in their teens, they want to be seen as grown up, so let’s create photos of them they can’t wait to share and you want to put up on your wall to remind you that it’s not all mood swings and bad music (or was that just me as a teen!)
