If you’re planning a trip to London with your family, why not hire a professional London Vacation Photographer? It’s the perfect way to record your special time in this amazing city.
I’m a documentary family photographer and have lived in London my whole life. This means I’m lucky enough to know pretty much every street in this wonderful City. I’ll be happy to advise you on what location will work best for a photo session with your unique family.
Many families are keen to include some of the famous London landmarks in the images, which is a great idea. As a natural family photographer, I can do this for you in an authentic way. Rather than you all posing for the camera I can photograph you having fun, with London monuments in the background.
Family Photographs at the Southbank by the River Thames
Below I’ve included some images from sessions I’ve done all over London. One area that always works well is along the Southbank, next to the River Thames. Sometimes I start photo shoots at Westminster Bridge and wander along the river towards the London Eye. Here we can also include one of my favourite spots, which you might not know. This is the graffiti-covered Skateboard Park near the Royal Festival Hall. It’s such a fun location and works fabulously for photos.
Tower Bridge, Borough Market and more….
Other shoots have started near the iconic Tower Bridge, which always looks pretty spectacular in images. From here we can go on to explore the nearby Borough Market, which I love for its quirky backgrounds. It’s also a good opportunity to grab a bite to eat if you’re starting to feel a bit hungry!
Another great area is around Covent Garden. It’s such a fun place to go with the Market, the cobbled streets and the very colourful Neals Yard. And just a few minutes walk from here is Trafalgar Square, where you can admire the lions and the fountains.
Other families prefer to go somewhere quieter and have their vacation photography session in one of the London Parks. I’m happy to recommend one that will work for you, maybe near where you are staying. Hyde Park and Regents Park are always firm favourites with families. Or you might prefer Battersea Park, where we can include the River Thames and pretty Albert Bridge in the photographs. Or maybe you’d like the less well-known Holland Park, with its beautiful Japanese Kyoto Garden.
Wherever you decide to have your family photography session you can be assured that it will be lots of fun! And you’ll go home with a wonderful set of professional photos that will always remind you of your wonderful family trip to London.
