Family Photography on Hampstead Heath, North London

Hampstead Heath in North London is one of my most favorite places to photograph families. I often joke I ought to move closer, as I end up travelling up there a lot for family photoshoots, especially in the summer months. It has a perfect mix of wide open spaces, big blue skies, plenty of shaded areas to escape to during the hot summer days, and not forgetting the glorious views over London from Parliament Hill – always a hit with my expat clients living in the area.

What Do You Miss The Most?

I often joke that I don’t remember much from the first 2 years of my son’s life as he basically didn’t sleep – and neither did I. He did of course, but anything to do with sleep was a major struggle. One of the things I had to do daily was to go for a walk with him, so he’d have a nap – the only way he’d nap for over a year was in his Baby Jogger City Mini – and so that I could actually do some work in my business.
