Choosing a location for your baby and family photography session is a big decision and I always encourage people to pick somewhere that has a significant meaning for them. Usually this is a local park or meeting place and I try to work the interesting landmarks into the background to add to the identity of the images. So I was thrilled when Rachel got in touch and said she’d like me to take photos of her, her husband and beautiful baby boy in Greenwich Park, one of my absolute favourite places for photography. Not only have I photographed many families and musicians here, but I also used to live in Greenwich so it’s an area I’m very familiar with and absolutely love!
We met up bright and early on one of the hottest days of the year and walked around the park, finding various spots for the photos. Greenwich Park is awash with historical buildings and lavish backdrops. Of course the equestrian events of the London 2012 Olympics were held there and the views across the river to the city make a stunning background.
Glimpses of these wonderful views sneak their way into some of the shots we took on the day but the focus was completely on two lovely parents and their fabulous baby boy. The other thing you’ll see in the images below is his favourite teddy – an important plaything for young children often helps family photography run smoothly when babies get tired.
Hope you enjoy a few of the images from my latest family portrait photography session below.
