It’s been the most amazing year of photography – full of family and baby photography sessions, musicians’ portraits and weddings. I’ve met so many lovely people and visited some fantastic places and have enjoyed every minute of it – I can’t wait for more of the same in 2015!
I thought I’d end the year with this very sweet baby photography session in West London. The morning started in the family home. I always think it’s a great place to begin family photography sessions as it gives us all a chance to get to know each other a bit before the camera comes out. It’s also an opportunity for children to get used to me being around and allows them to relax in front of the camera.
We got some lovely shots of the beautiful baby girl playing in various rooms around the house before we all headed out to the local park. Although it was the end of November the autumn leaves were still on the trees and looked fantastic as a backdrop for many of the shots. We had a fun time in the surprisingly warm sunshine and the parents blew bubbles for their baby daughter, which she loved. It was wonderful to see her clutching her parents’ hands as they led her through the park. We all wandered home happy after a successful family photo shoot.
One of my favourite images from this baby photography session is the one of the three of them lying down with the two parents looking lovingly at their baby daughter. I love the way the Dad is gently smoothing his little girl’s hair and how she is chewing on her fingers – too cute!
I really enjoyed photographing this family and hope you like seeing some of my favourite images from our morning together. I wish you all a Happy New Year!
