I love being a Fulham Family Photographer! Fulham’s an area I know really well, and it works brilliantly for family photoshoots. It’s full of lovely green spaces and perfect locations for family and children’s portraits.
Fulham Palace, the historic home of the Bishops of London, is a hidden gem. It’s tucked away near the River Thames, close to Putney Bridge. The palace itself is stunning and the scene for many a wedding. The architecture makes for some really interesting family photographs. And the fountain is always a source of pleasure for young children. The grounds of Fulham Palace are full of beautiful plants, rare trees and a stunning walled garden. It always feels like a secret garden as it is so secluded and never too busy. It really does provide the perfect setting for a family photography session.
Fulham Family Photographer at the playground!
Next to Fulham Palace is the large Bishops Park. It’s so pretty with the ornamental lake, urban beach and moat garden. It’s also great for Fulham family photoshoots as it features a large playground. I normally spend at least part of my family photo sessions at the playground. After capturing some natural family portraits it’s a great place to let off steam. It’s also a chance to capture some fun candid moments of the children enjoying themselves. One of my favourite walks is next to Bishops Park towards Putney Bridge, by the River Thames. It’s so picturesque with its green railings and large trees overhanging the water. This backdrop always looks striking in family photos. It’s also a really popular spot for rowing and is of course the start of the famous Oxford/Cambridge boat race.
Fulham family photoshoots in the other parks and cemeteries
Other great locations for a Fulham family photographer are Hurlingham Park and South Park. The smaller Eel Brook Common and the very pretty Parsons Green work well too. And I’ve taken some beautiful images over the years in Fulham Cemetery. It really does look magnificent in the spring with its blossom trees. Brompton Cemetery is another great spot for family photoshoots. I’ve really enjoyed several family photography sessions there using the Autumn colours as a glorious backdrop to family portraits.
If you live in Fulham, or it’s an area you enjoy visiting why not treat yourself to a family photography session? It’s a location that really does work wonderfully in images. And the photos will always remind you and your children of what a beautiful area they played in during their childhood.
