This American military family was visiting London in January over from Italy where they were stationed at the time, and they reached out to me to document their London adventures before baby number two made an appearance. Despite what you might think, it doesn’t always rain in London in winter and we do have wonderful crisp sunny days and the low northern winter light gives that extra special look and feel to the photographs – but to be honest I can take great family photographs in any weather, rain or shine!
This family travelled to London from Tennessee, USA and decided to book the whole day with me so they didn’t have to “fit” the photoshoot into their already packed schedule (exactly what it’s intended for – busy families with lots on their plate!).
I can’t quite believe 2018 is almost over – can you? There was this one meme floating on the internet which I can’t now locate, but it basically went like this: 2018 was like “January, cold, World Cup, heatwave, heatwave, football is coming home, heatwave, December”. That’s definitely how it felt to me.
This photoshoot was very special – the family was visiting over from Washington, DC, and wanted to capture some special photographs of the kids having brilliant time here in London. Because they visit London frequently, they didn’t really want to have typical landmarks in the background, and instead opted for some relaxed family portraits in the private gardens of the Cadogan Gardens Hotel where they were staying.
This family was visiting over from Hong Kong, and although both parents have studied here (many moons ago) it was the first time for them here as a family of three and a very special trip indeed.
This family was shortly relocating to Singapore and booked a photoshoot with me after googling “a London inspired family photoshoot”, finding my website – and falling in love with my style. That was exactly what they wanted, relaxed natural images of the whole family enjoying their time together with a gorgeous backdrop of London landmarks to complete the picture.
