Autumnal London Family Photo shoot
It was so much fun to photograph Shayna & Oli’s Autumnal Family photo shoot. I had the pleasure of photographing the couples wedding in North London. At the time they married Shayna was pregnant with the little bundle of gorgeousness you see in these photos. We had such a blast on their wedding day that that they got back in touch, once their little boy had been born, to arrange a London family photo shoot.
When I do family photography I tend not to do too many baby shoots. Often we arrange to do the photos when their little one is around 6-8 months old, and I love that. It’s a wonderful age, when cheeks are chubby, legs are chunky and there are dimples on hands. Babies this age are super cuddly and you get smiles, reactions and giggles. They are also getting a bit stronger so can hold themselves up more easily.
For their London family photo shoot, we started at their home in North London. We had a cup of tea and a catch up (always a nice way to start a shoot!) and then wrapped up to head out to their local park to make the most of the beautiful Autumnal sunshine. Their little boy was fabulous, he smiled and gurgled and was a total star. Not a tantrum in sight! After a little wander and some photos outside we headed back to their home for a few more pictures. It’s always great to get photos in your home, especially when your little one is little. When they are 18 and you have probably moved house a couple of times, or they’re leaving for college, these photos will be that amazing reminder of that time. A reminder of you as new parents, but also a reminder of your life as it was. Important photos that get more precious as time goes on.
I am a London wedding and family photographer taking natural, beautiful, and creative photographs of wonderful, happy people in London, Surrey, Kent and further afield! If you fancy having a family photos shoot take a look at my Family Photography pricing page for more info.
