Chiswick House Family Photographer

Posted by & filed under Families.

It’s always a bit nerve-wrecking when you arrive at a venue to meet the family you’re photographing, and you discover that the session is a surprise for one of the family members! In this case the dad had thoughtfully booked the session as a birthday present for his wife, and she had no idea what was happening until she met me! I needn’t have worried though, as she was overjoyed at the idea of having a family photoshoot. As I hear so often, she’d wanted to have one for a while, but just hadn’t got around to booking one. And as for me – being a Chiswick House family photographer for an afternoon turned out to be the best fun!

The family were brilliant – there were three lovely children with their parents. Plus one grandma, an aunt and an uncle. And the venue they chose was one of my favourites – Chiswick House and Gardens. All in all, it was perfect, and I couldn’t wait to get going capturing some natural family portraits.

The joys of being a Chiswick House family photographer!

Chiswick House provides so many wonderful backdrops, so I’m always spoilt for choice when I photograph families there. For this session I picked some of my favourites backgrounds and in each location photographed different combinations of this extended family. This way they would have a huge variety of images to choose from after the shoot. The family were great to photograph – such fun, and the session was full of chat and laughter. The children were brilliant – running around, jumping up and down and cuddling.

One of my favourite images from this London family photography session is the one where they are doing funny walks along a pathway lined with beautiful purple flowers. Such a joyous image. I’m also really pleased with the large group portraits of everyone together. I really wanted these to look spontaneous, rather than forced and posed. I love how they are engaging with each other and you can see the close relationships between family members. This really was a wonderful London family photoshoot, and I’m so glad the surprise was a happy one!
