Well what a year 2020 has been! Certainly not the easiest to be a London family photographer! Very luckily, I was able to get back to doing family photoshoots after the first lockdown, which was wonderful. Since then I’ve met many fantastic families and had such fun with them creating family portraits. I am so grateful to them all for supporting my business through these difficult times.
Unfortunately other areas of my business have been badly affected. Mainly my wedding and events photography. It’s hard to see at the moment when these will return to normal, but like everyone else I’m trying to just take a day at a time and be thankful for the work I do have.
The joys of London vacation photography
Another part of my photography that stopped in March was my London vacation photography. I used to photograph so many families that were on holiday in this amazing city and I loved it. It was brilliant meeting up with families from all over the world, hearing about their lives back home, and creating memorable portraits of them at London’s spectacular landmarks.
The image below was taken during the last London vacation photoshoot I did before the March lockdown. I met up with this lovely American family and none of us had any idea of the year that lay ahead. It’s almost impossible to believe that when the session took place we were only a couple of weeks away from lockdown in the UK. Hence the photos from this wonderful family photoshoot have become really special to me. And I’m happy to report that the family were overjoyed with the images too! I’m looking forward to photographing them again when they return to London at some point in the future.
