I had such a wonderful time creating these Cannizaro Park family portraits. The family were great fun and I loved spending a morning with them. The location was perfect too! Cannizaro Park is a beautiful park just off Westside Wimbledon Common. It actually has Grade II status due to some of its rare plants, which are all around the park. It really is well worth a visit if you don’t know it already.
We met up at Cannizaro Park early one morning, when the light was at its best. After a quick chat with the parents and their two lovely lively boys, we made our way to the rose garden. There are so many wonderfully different areas to the park we were spoilt for choice really. But the rose garden felt like the perfect starting place.
We got some lovely relaxed family portraits here and some fun shots of the boys playing together. Nearby we found some fallen tree trunks, which made fantastic seats for the boys while I took individual portraits of them, then some of the two siblings together.
Cannizaro Park Family Portraits – Italian Garden
We then went to my favourite area of Cannizaro Park, the Italian Garden. The old walls surrounding the garden made a wonderful backdrop to the natural family portraits. We actually spent most of the session here, creating different looks with various family combinations. I especially like the photos where the family are standing behind the wall, next to the stairs. The lovely old brick wall, the smiles of the family and the stunning trees behind them helped make some wonderful family portraits.
All too soon our session came to an end. It had gone by so quickly, but we had managed to capture a large variety of images. I was so happy with the photos we got that morning and was overjoyed to hear the family loved them too!
