Natural Family Photographer London: Hyde Park Family Photos
When a London Mum contacted me recently to take some natural, unposed photos of her with her son we decided to go for a walk in Hyde Park for our session. Like so many of us, she is the designated photographer in her family, so often taking the photos and ending up not being in any. So far, so normal. But when her son's nursery asked for a photo of all children with their Mum for Mother's Day, she realised quite HOW lacking she was in the photos. "I looked through my phone and found hundreds of photos of the children playing, or ones I'd taken of them with my husband, but there were none of me. NONE. Then my husband showed me the only 2 pictures of me with our son that he had on his phone: neither of them were in focus let alone photos I liked!. It was ridiculous, he's 2 years old for goodness sake! It really made me realise that I definitely do want there to be some photos just of the two of us - and, just in case nursery come knocking again, ideally ones I like!".
This is such a familiar tale, and I was so happy to give this lovely Mum a whole set of photos JUST of her with her tree climbing tot, we had so much fun on our shoot and she came away feeling super happy. Here are some very kind words she sent me afterwards:
"I can't get over how good these are, your'e amazing!!! So so happy, I literally can't believe a walk in the park with you could produce such nice photos - we didn't even know you were taking most of them! Thank you so much".
If you would like there to be more photos with you actually in that you really like, taken in a natural and unposed way, please do get in contact, I would love to hear from you!
