watching your family grow

Children's Photographer London Fulham

A recent family shoot in Fulham.  Just to prove that you don’t need wide open countryside to find great light and colour here are a few shots from my first family shoot of 2019 which I took in Bishop’s Park in Fulham on a very cold windy day.  This is my 3rd shoot with these clients and it’s been a pleasure to watch Nate grow up.  As a Children’s photographer London Fulham doesn’t have many places I use regularly but Bishop’s park is really lovely and well cared for.. They are renovating the old residence there at the moment so it’s difficult to get near to the building but if you can avoid the joggers you’ll get some really lovely spots.  There are large trees, long vistas, river views and a pond.  Not least there is a fantastic playground and cafe there for after the shoot!!

Children love outdoor photo shoots

This is a photo of the same little chap when he was just sitting in the same park.  Children who are able to move are far happier having their photos taken in the great wide open.  I strongly advice you to have an outdoor photo shoot in order to get the best expressions and enjoyment out of the session.  Do get in touch if you would like to enquire about doing your own family shoot..  they grow up very fast so don’t leave it too long!!

West London Photographer

It's always great when you get a little person who is able to take direction and loves the attention I give her. Little Rose was so sweet and loved the wind machine. I've been a West London Photographer for 11 years now and every now and then I do special offers for...

Artistic children’s photography London

When I wanted to do more fine art children's photography I put out a request for freckled children to come along and give me the time to experiment with lighting and posing etc and play with the fan (aka wind machine!). The mother of this girl contacted me and asked...

Children’s Portrait Photographer

These 3 gorgeous kids were part of my 'freckles' campaign, I wanted to capture children with freckles in a fine art setting, partly to make them feel special and partly for me to experiment with lighting and posing. They excelled themselves and were great fun. We even...
