One of my favourite things about being a family portrait photographer is when I get the chance to revisit the family for different occasions over the years. It’s an amazing experience to record these moments in time and see how the family has grown since my last visit.
This is how it has been with Nora and Thomas, who I first met when I was their wedding photographer at Chelsea Old Town Hall. If you’d like to see some images from their wonderful wedding just follow the link here Nora and Thomas Wedding
The following year, I visited them after the arrival of their beautiful baby daughter. We got some lovely family portraits of the three of them together as well as some of the baby on her own.
Last month I had the pleasure of photographing them again, with their lovely newborn baby son. It was fabulous to catch up with them, meet their gorgeous little boy and see their wonderful daughter, who is now an incredibly cute two-year-old bundle of fun. One of my favourite shots from this family photography session is the one where the big sister is lying next to her new baby brother gently stroking his cheek – such a sweet moment!
It was a very cold wintry day so we spent most of our time indoors, enjoying the warmth of various rooms in their family home. Towards the end of the shoot we decided it was time to brave the cold January winds and everybody grabbed their coats and hats and headed for the park. I’m glad we did as it adds a totally different type of dimension to the photographs and is a wonderful contrast to the cosy indoor shots.
I look forward to seeing them again soon, but for now, here are a few of my favourite shots from our morning together.
