London family photography on vacation
Create a photographic journal of your family holiday. London is a glorious location for a family photoshoot with its iconic landmarks, historic architecture, quirky backstreets and green parklands. I know the city well and how to find great places to shoot. I will photograph as you explore and can follow your itinerary, or suggest some fabulous locations for us to visit together.
A fine art album or framed prints make the best possible souvenir of your special time together in London.
“London is a special city for my husband and I and we wanted to capture some memories with our three boys on our recent visit. One chat with Antonina and I knew we would be in good hands. Antonina was a pro, a tour guide, and a friend!! We will forever treasure the pictures she took for us.” — Tara
Visit London’s iconic landmarks
One of the many options for your vacation family photography session in London is booking a landmark photoshoot. We will chat ahead of your session and discuss which areas of London or landmarks you’d like to visit. Then I will suggest a walkabout route that includes some of your highlights.
Some of my clients love starting their London photoshoot at Big Ben or London Eye, and then continuing to walk along South Bank towards Millenium Bridge and Tate Modern. Or we can start at Tower Bridge and explore the historic cobbled streets of Shad Thames nearby. There are so many options, but I will help you choose a route that will make an amazing day out and include an essential stop for ice-cream.
Family photoshoots in London’s parks
Many of my Middle-Eastern clients prefer heading to one of London’s Royal Parks for their London family photoshoot. In the spring and summer, the parks are full of greenery and flowers so create a very English backdrop for family photos.
If you’re staying in Kensington or Notting Hill, then Hyde Park is a perfect option for you. If you’re in Hampstead or St John’s Wood, then Regent’s Park with its beautiful rose garden, or Hampstead Heath with its pretty wooded areas and views over the whole city are both beautiful locations.

London vacation photoshoot example
This was the second time I photographed this family from Singapore – on the previous visit to London their youngest was still a baby. We started their family photography session at a playground next to London Eye, and afterwards took a walk to St James’s Park, finishing on another playground. The parents brought bubble guns to play with the kids, and that added to the fun we were having.
“Loved every single photo that Antonina took! She was lovely to work with and we even forgot she was there sometimes!” — Fawz
