Family photography: how I work

Family photographer London

Nothing beats family time

Family photography sessions are always lots of fun. I want to capture your children just as they are – natural, spontaneous and totally in the moment. Seeing them play and interact with each other in their own inimitable style produces some amazing photographs.

We’ll be able to find a time that fits in with your family routine – family portrait sessions usually last for two hours and are arranged midweek and at weekends. 

I’ll take individual portraits of each child, photographs of the siblings together, portraits of each of you playing with and cuddling your children, and photographs of the whole family together.

Everyone’s welcome – grandparents, aunts, uncles, no holds barred!

Location, location, location

We’ll begin the session in your home to get everyone relaxed and used to the camera. After an hour or so at home, if you’d like, we’ll spend the rest of the session in your garden or local park for some stunning shots with nature and outdoor play. Wherever means a lot to you as a family, that’s where we’ll go. I want to record the most enchanting, precious moments, when your children are not even aware they’re being observed.

“Our photos exceeded my expectations. They are just beautiful. I actually welled up little when I saw the photos of the children together – Louise managed to capture something really special. They’re exactly what I was after. The ones of the children together are just divine. I’m really, super impressed!” Laura


Relaxed brings out the best

As a mum, I know how to get the most out of children, what to do to animate them and bring out their unique personality. It’s all about making them feel comfortable and unself-conscious. Your child will dictate the pace of the session. I’m used to allowing plenty of time for snack stops, toilet stops, and any little dramas that might crop up in the heat of the moment.

What’s great is that if your child is having a break, it gives me a chance to snap mum and dad together.

“We are really pleased that we chose Louise to photograph our family photos. She made us feel at ease and we had a lot of fun on the day. Our daughter just enjoyed being photographed by Louise. We have a lot of really good pictures so we will definitely recommend Louise and will be using her services again in the future. We’ve already recommended her to our friends who were so impressed with our photos!”
