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.
