I can’t think of many things in my working life that beat being a Shad Thames family photographer for a day! If you don’t already know this wonderful part of London, Shad Thames is a cobbled street that runs alongside the River Thames next to Tower Bridge. It’s filled with converted warehouses and is incredibly photogenic. And it provided the perfect backdrop for this London family photography session.
London family photography at iconic landmarks
The photoshoot was with a family who were keen to have some professional photos taken near Tower Bridge. They used to live close to this iconic London landmark and wanted to include it some family photographs before they moved out of London. I was very happy with their idea, as it’s one of my favourite locations for London family and vacation photography.
As soon as we met up, I just knew it was going to be a fun session! The parents were lovely and their cute little boy so smiley and full of energy! We began the family photoshoot on the north side of Tower Bridge. As well as getting lots of relaxed family portraits with this stunning London attraction in the background, we also got some great images using various colourful walls which were close by. We also included some happy photographs in front of a red London telephone box, which I love to do when I see one!

Then we strolled across Tower Bridge to Shad Thames. At this point in a London family photography session really little children can start to get tired. But not this one! He was amazing – he literally did not stop smiling for the whole time we were together. We had lots more laughs playing with some bubbles in Shad Thames, creating some great candid images. Then we finished off this London photoshoot with more family portraits with the City of London in the background. And then it was sadly time to say goodbye to this charming smiley little boy and his lovely parents.
