Professional Children’s Photography

Posted by & filed under Families.

I really do feel incredibly lucky having professional children’s photography as my job. It hardly feels like work sometimes! The image below was taken during one of many fun London family photography sessions I’ve done recently. I had photographed one of the boys at his nursery, where I take the children’s portraits every year. And the mum liked the photos she saw so much that she booked one of my family photoshoots for her three boys.

Professional Children’s Photography in the Park

This children’s photography session took place in the family’s local park in London. It’s a park that meant so much to the family as it’s where they spent most of their free time together. And as they were about to move out of London this special location had taken on even more meaning.

I spend a lot of time during all of my family sessions photographing the action as it unfolds. No posing, just allowing the children to play while I take candid shots of them. But I also make sure I get some relaxed portraits of the family together, which does take a little organising. But I make sure it’s still done in a fun way, so the smiles in the photos are genuine. If the photos are just of the children, I’ll often ask one of the parents to stand behind me and make them laugh. After all they know their children the best and will have an idea how to produce some giggles. It could be a favourite family joke, or a bit of crazy dancing or the odd slightly rude word, I’ve heard it all! I can’t remember what the mum did to get her lovely boys to smile for this photo but it worked. And I just love the natural children’s portrait it helped to create.

If you’d like to book a professional children’s photography session with me, please do get in touch. And to see more examples of natural kids portraits please take a look here London Family Photographer
