This new post is way overdue, but first of all:
Welcome back to my London Photography Blog, where I post some of my favourite shoots!
As you all know, I am a London family documentary photographer.
However, if you have ever wondered what that actually means, you can check out this one of my previous posts for an explanation.
(You may even find that this is exactly the type of photography you have always been looking for!)
Today’s session is a very good example of a 4-hour documentary session in the centre of London. We took the time to play around the Victoria Tower Gardens near the Parliament building, we ate some ice-cream, walked past the Household Calvary Museum to check out Her Majesty’s gorgeous mounted horse guards, walked along the South Bank, ate a delicious lunch at Wagamama, played with huge bubbles on the Queen’s Walk and even had time to go down on the sandy bank of the Thames, where we ran around, played hide and seek and skipped stones. We ended all the fun with a big hot chocolate at Cafe Nero, because all good days end with a hot chocolate. It was crazy windy and a bit cold, but it didn’t matter. We still had fun!
I have to admit that even though I enjoy doing these kind of sessions, it is always a little nerve-racking when my subject is another photographer. Nevertheless, it was a very rewarding session. It was so great to see how close ‘A’ and her son are, and to witness their connection and their love for each other. By the way, this mum, on top of working full time as a photographer, running her own marketing courses and speaking at conferences also manages to somehow home educate her son, too! How awesome is she?!
Dear ‘A’, I tip my hat to you. 🙂
If these are the kind of memories of your family that you have always wanted, then book a session soon. I would love to be the one to help you remember your family the way it is today.
