Being a St Pancras portrait photographer was the perfect way to spend an afternoon just before Christmas. The lovely mum and son in the photos below were holidaying in London and wanted to capture this special time with a London vacation photography session. They were staying at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London so were keen to have some photos taken there. They also wanted to have some festive portraits in front of other beautiful Christmas decorations in London.
St Pancras Portrait Photographer – Hotel and Station
We met up at the St Pancras Hotel and began with some photos on the stunning Grand Staircase. This famous staircase is just fantastic and was perfect for some portraits of mum and son. Then, after a quick change of outfit, we moved outside and used the wonderful building of St Pancras Hotel as a backdrop to our images.
We then decided to take a series of London portraits in St Pancras station itself. It was a fantastically photogenic space with its high ceiling and I knew it was going to work brilliantly in the photos. And this stylish pair looked fabulous, as they wandered around the (luckily for us) empty station.
Covent Garden Christmas Portraits
We then made our way to Covent Garden, where there was time for more festive portraits in the beautifully decorated Apple Market. Covent Garden is one of my favourite areas of London for Christmas family photography sessions, so I’m always happy to return there.
Family portraits with the lights of Carnaby Street
It was starting to go dark at this point, so the perfect time to make our way to Carnaby Street. This was the area that the lady in the photos was most looking forward to visiting. The Carnaby Street Christmas lights and decorations cause a lot of excitement every year, and I was so happy with the colourful, vibrant portraits we created of this lovely mother and son duo.
I really hope you enjoy seeing these London vacation photography images. To see more of my family portraits around London please do take a look at my website here London Vacation Photographer
