Childrens Portraits, London

Photographing children on location in London, is a real treat for any portrait photographer!

There are so many wonderful locations to chose from, stunning parks, bridges, famous landmarks and some really funky urban settings!

Recently I had a request from a family that I have had the pleasure of capturing for many years, to have a family portrait shoot in Shoreditch.

Ebor Street, just off Bethnal Green Road, was the place to meet!

This was a new location for me, and I am always keen to find new and interesting locations to push my work creatively.

I arrived early to scout the location, and WHAT a location! It was obviously well known to other photographers, as there seemed to be a stream of them up and down the street! Taking images of young models, children, and business portraits.

However, after a while we had the place to ourselves, and it was wonderful. The colors, the cobbled street, were just perfect for the style of clothes the family had bought along.

It really does make a difference to the shoot if clients have really thought about what they are wearing in their chosen environment.

The girls were fantastic and had great expressions, and it really is lovely for me to see my clients grow, in to beautiful kids and be great friends!

Two beautiful girls portraits,Winchmore Hill.

Last week, I had the pleasure of returning to a fabulous house in Winchmore Hill, North London, for some natural portrait images, of two gorgeous little girlies!

This is a yearly occurrence for this family, as they want to capture their growing family and how their girls are changing so quickly! It is really lovely to see how the girls are really getting such lovely little personalities!

I have been imaging the girls for a few years now, and started doing this in the studio in High Barnet, I now have moved all of my shoots outside, and on location, as this seemed like the natural progression!

The kids are loving the freedom of being able to go outside, and as a result the images taken are more natural and unique to each client, something which clients are really embracing.

If you are thinking of having some beautiful natural portraits of your family or children, please do contact me for details! It would be a pleasure to chat with you!

Lets go outside!

Having returned from another wonderful trip to Nepal with the charity Raleigh International, I am now back to shooting my day job, with some lovely location portraits in and around London.

So with the weather improving (slightly!) I have started to shoot all of my portraits of children and families out on location, and what a joy! I love to explore the beautiful countryside and parks that we have in and around London. We really do have a wealth of great open spaces that are perfect for family portraiture.

I am loving the freedom of not being tied to the studio, and the results I am finding are much more natural, and in keeping for the growing trend of lifestyle location portraits, although they are definitely more time consuming, clients are relishing choosing locations more personal to them, resulting in more unique portraiture.

Some of the more memorable shoots from last year include, a vintage bus shoot, a skate park shoot, the Cutty Sark, the seaside, and many others!

If you and your family would like to capture some unique portraits in a location personal to you, please do contact me to discuss your ideas! It would be great to hear from you!

I am now taking bookings for the summer holidays! With weddings and other commissions meaning I am very busy, please do contact me as soon as possible to book a particular date.

I look forward to meeting you!

Beautiful family portraits, Hampstead Heath.

A few weeks ago on a lovely Autumnal morning I met a lovely family who wanted to capture their growing family!

It is always so beautiful shooting on Hampstead Heath, especially in the Autumn with the wonderful warm colours and falling leaves.

We met outside the very grand Kenwood house and started shooting straight away! I would always suggest a morning shoot if choosing a location such as this, (it gets very busy, and trying to avoid the crowds can be difficult!)

Also it is particularly beneficial if you are shooting smaller children, they are definitely better in the morning, straight after breakfast they are generally full of energy and lovely to work with, enabling me to create some natural and timeless portraits.

These two gorgeous little ones, performed very well and the interaction between them was just beautiful to see! My favourites are where we stopped for a little rest at the front of Kenwood, and I just asked the two to play between them! The results were just precious! The obvious love between the two was a joy!Erin and Connell-042

If you would like to capture your family or children in such a way, please do contact me!

I now only shoot on location and from March-November so get booked up from weekends very quickly! (especially during the summer) so book WELL in advance if you would like a shoot.

I am available to shoot throughout the South East and within London, so it you have a great location, please call me to discuss!

Kids portraiture, London!

A few weeks ago, I met a very cool twosome, down on the Southbank in London for some funky kids portraits!

Lola and Jon were brilliant, and the clothes and props that they had bought along for their photoshoot were just great for this wonderful location!

We got straight in and started taking images in the very cool skate park! We had arranged to meet quite early, as it was the summer holidays and we didn’t want the park to be busy!

The bright graffiti and urban feel, were just perfect for these two and their cool clothes and skate boards! And we managed to have the park all to ourselves, which was just great!

We then had a little walk around the local area to scout some more areas, for some more portraits and the Southbank is just full of them! Colourful staircases, giant hands, and beautiful murals, just an amazing backdrop for some great fun kids portraits!

The kids just loved exploring the area with me! They even managed to find two giant, and I mean GIANT slides, that they persuaded mum to take them on after the shoot!

If you fancy some unique and funky kids portraits in or around London please do contact me for details! I would love to hear from you!
