Family Photographer Richmond-Upon-Thames

I can't believe I haven't shared this shoot before now because it's one of my favourite family sessions of last year. I'd photographed Serevine and her family a year before this shoot at their home in Putney, London. Then last Spring she got back in touch to say she wanted to do another shoot, this time, outdoors in the wilds of Richmond Park.

We met early one evening in May with a picnic and three eager children all ready to explore Richmond Park. The light was soft and pretty and the children climbed trees, blew dandelions and gathered handfuls of long grasses as I shot their session.

This is a family full of love and with a great sense of humour, I can't wait to capture them all again, this Spring, one year on.

I really love shooting in beautiful London locations like Richmond Park. Late Spring is a magical time for photoshoots and taking a picnic for an early evening session means you get a relaxed and informal collection of images during the golden hour.  Whilst I'm based in Richmond and do most of my work on location in the park here, I'm always happy to travel too to other wild and beautiful spots. If you'd like to find out more about booking a shoot with me, whether it's a family photographer you're looking for or you're interested in capturing your pregnancy or newborn, drop me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Maternity Photographer; Richmond-Upon-Thames

Mireille wanted natural shots to capture her pregnancy in the wilds of Richmond Park. Whist she lives in Hampstead Heath, Mireille came down to visit me in Richmond, and together we walked through the long grasses and across the meadows, stopping every so often for me to capture her in a gentle and peaceful way.

I'm in awe of what women are capable of, how strong our bodies are and how focused we can be when awaiting the unknowns of labour, birth and beyond. And I love the anticipation and excitement in maternity photography, it is such a fleeting part of our journey as mothers and so rarely do we take the time to celebrate what we are capable of through images.

Documenting the journey from inside to outside the womb is truly the greatest gift and I was very lucky to capture Mireille after her baby had arrived with a newborn shoot. I'll share her newborn shots soon but for now, here are some of my favourites from her Maternity session.

Whilst I'm based in Richmond-Upon-Thames, I work all over London and beyond. I'm happy to travel if you're excited about having me and my eye capture you and your loves. If you'd like to find out more about booking a home or location session with me, whether it's a maternity and pregnancy photographer you're looking for or you're interested in birth, newborn or family photography, do drop me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Family & Baby Photographer in Richmond Park, Richmond-Upon-Thames

The majority of the shoots I do for client's outdoors are set within Richmond Park in the pretty pocket of London, Richmond-Upon-Thames. It's not just because it is local to me that I love to shoot there. It's because there are so many hidden corners to get lost in and ample space to loose the rest of the world for a while and find a quiet spot to relax and just be. Children seem to feel at home when they are surrounded by nature. Simplicity, it seems, is both calming and familiar to little ones, and with acres to explore within the park itself and the fact it is left wild in so many places rather than manicured like many other London Parks, there is always something to see, animals to spot and open space to explore.

This peaceful family photoshoot with baby Ernest and his parents was one very bright and hot morning in August. I was worried it would be too hot for a baby and too bright for me to get really great shots but we found a beautiful shady tree to curl up under, and the rest of the magic this family conjured up themselves.

My favourite kinds of photoshoots are the ones where people let themselves forget I am there for most of it and allow me to be an observer of their time together. That is always when I find myself catching the purest of emotions, the most intense chemistry and the true spirit of a family.

If you'd like to me to capture you and your baby or family, either in Richmond Park or elsewhere in London or Surrey, please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
