Family Portraits in London

I spent a weekend in London a couple of weeks ago and did two lovely but very different portrait session.  The first was with Colin and Susie, and their little boy, Tristan.  Tristan loves his football, so we went over to Wandsworth Common with a football, a rugby ball, and some bread for the ducks.

Tristan is a similar age to my eldest, Josh, and it is such a fun age to take photographs – they just get into doing something (like kicking a ball) when they suddenly and irresistibly get sidetracked by something even more fascinating, like a stick, so you get these fantastic moments when they are just engrossed in something incredibly trivial.  These moments make for some of my favourite photographs, like the ones when Tristan discovered that there were several ways around the bamboo and it made a great hiding place…

Here is my pick of the family portraits from the morning.

As a photographer, I genuinely enjoy the process of taking photos – the interaction, creativity and happy clients keep me enthusiastic and innovative. Many people find it awkward having their photograph taken – I use my experience to put people at ease so that I can get the most out of them, often in a short period of time.

Over the years I have been a professional photograph, I have won both regional and national awards, and I have been awarded an LMPA from the Master Photographers Association.
