London Family Photographer: Victoria Park Family Photo Session
Natural Family Photography in Victoria Park
Once upon a time in London, this little boy and his parents went to Victoria Park to do what many families all across London do at weekends when little people come along: to get coffee and run around in the playground. So far, so normal. But on this particular Sunday, a few weeks before his parents got married, I came along to capture some gorgeous memories of just the three of them, which is something I definitely recommend all families do while the children are young, as photos which have both parents in them are a wonderful thing for these small people to have to look back on when they're older. Do you have a collection of photos you love of these early years of parenting, to bottle just a fraction of the long day short year era?!
These relaxed, natural sessions of people at home and in their local surroundings make my heart sing. Don't get me wrong: the wedding photos were AMAZING too, but away from all the merriment of the wedding day, a different kind of love shines through. When we take a snapshot of our everyday life in a session like this, we stop for a minute to hone in on the details and the people in it. The photos we have from doing so provide both us and our children with a valuable trail back to the here and now - holding all the details of the place we lived when our baby was born, the park he loved to run around in for hours on end, or just the very fact of documenting some time as a family altogether. The thing I REALLY love though, the clincher, is the idea that one day this little boy might look at these photos and see the wide smiles shining back at him, and feel the love for him that shines out from a time a won't remember. To me, in these crazy busy times where we blink and everything changes, there is magic in these weekend walks. Take a look for yourselves and if you'd like some natural, unposed images of you with your family, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
