Doing a Family shoot in London for a brand new family is one of my favourite sessions to shoot when I’m not working on weddings. Photographing newborn babies and their parents on film, to me it creates a whole new level of authenticity, innocence, nostalgia and charm. When a baby enters the world, it shakes the very core of his/her parents lives. Such an epic shift in perspective and change in pace is monumental and should surely be captured and immortalised in photos. These days we tend to rush around achieving, making, building and growing but when a baby comes along…things really stop and change. I really love the idea of a slower pace of life to allow for time, reflection and peace. That is what I try to capture in my newborn baby and family photography…the dawn of new era, the joy and the excitement, the acknowledgement of a new way of life, a new beginning and no doubt a wild adventure!

Shooting London family photo shoots on film is one of my favourite ways to spend an hour!

A few weeks ago I met this gorgeous little family at the Hampstead Hill Gardens & Pergola to do just that….It was near artic conditions but this little family soldiered on like absolute troopers although we did need to stop for a spot of lunch for the little man!

Once his parents shared with me his love of the song ‘signed, sealed, delivered’ by Stevie Wonder, he really came into his own as I balanced my phone playing this wonderful song whilst snapping away at the same time! In all my years of baby and family shoots, I have found it is sometimes the funniest things which will get a baby to pay attention…some children or babies are fascinated by the shutter inside the lens so remain a captive audience whereas others need a bit of encouragement and of course a bit of Stevie Wonder (who can blame them!)

London Family Photoshoots can be held anywhere, be that outdoors in your own garden or home or park.

Thank you so much Sophie for asking to capture this special time in your lives, you are so very blessed to have this little guy in your lives and I’m grateful to have witnessed just a little slice of your love.
