Family Photography in St John’s Wood
I LOVED hanging out with the awesome Ramachandra family for their photo shoot in St John’s Wood, London. These guys were so much fun and totally easy-going and relaxed, which made my job really easy! They contacted me, as an experienced London family photographer, to see if I’d come along and document one of their last ever days in St John’s Wood, London. They’ve lived here for the last few years but are about to move to India, permanently. It was awesome having the kids show me round their local area, pointing out favourite restaurants and play parks. We even stopped for a few snaps outside their former school.
I love to photograph families documentary style, rather than putting people in cheesy poses or trying to get forced smiles out of kids, which is never a good look! Family Photojournalism, or documentary-style family photography, is a sort of growing trend now in the UK and has been in the US for some time. On a side note, look out for an upcoming blog post – and introductory promotion! – on my Day In The Life photo shoots, which are the ultimate family photojournalism experience.
Although we stopped here and there for a couple of slightly more ‘arranged’ shots, our photo shoot was largely child-led, which makes things so much easier and stress-free for all involved. We had a fab time playing and running around in the local park, had coffee in their favourite cafe on St John’s Wood High Street and even snapped a couple of pics in ‘Dad’s magic car with the roof that goes up and down’ (so cute!), soon to be sold in preparation for their big move.
Family Photo Shoots in London
I’m a Kent based Family & Childrens Photographer (I live in Sandgate, near Folkestone) but work in London regularly. I’m lucky to be super close to a train station on the high speed link to London and can be at St Pancras in 50 minutes flat! Plus getting the train beats driving, any day ;)
I’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in having me photograph your family. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 07841 457799 to discuss options and have a good natter about what you’re looking for! There are my standard family sessions which take place at an outdoor location of your choice, plus my new Day In The Life sessions (I’m excited to be finally launching these!) – more on those coming up in a blog post really soon. Get in touch if you’re in need of a London Family Photographer.
