Kensington Family Photography
I'm Heather and I am a baby and family photographer in Kensington, Notting Hill and Holland Park, West London. My beautiful baby, child and family portraits are light-filled and full of natural, genuine expression and I would be absolutely thrilled to photograph your family for you!
Outdoor family photoshoots in Kensington
Holland Park, Notting Hill and Kensington Gardens are all right on my doorstep and some of my favourite locations in West London. Holland Park is closest to home and one of my most loved London parks for family portraits - and I've been known to photograph the odd newborn baby here too! It is so quiet and peaceful in the mornings, with just a handful of people practising yoga or tai chi in the Kyoto Gardens and only the noisy peacocks to disturb anyone! I love the formal gardens, just outside the ruins of Holland House itself, which works wonderfully well to keep exploring toddlers or crawling tiny tots within a certain range!
In summer these gardens are full of flowers and ornamental vegetables, bordered by beds of lavender, which make a gorgeous backdrop for photographs. In high summer when the sun can be too bright, I use the silver birch leaves to help diffuse the light. And I nearly forgot to mention the lovely rose gardens, just outside the Orangery. Everything is so close together, it is even easy to navigate with babies and buggies.
My style of children and family photography is very relaxed and natural, making the most of beautiful, natural light. If you would like to chat about your own children's or family photography session you can reach me here.
Baby photography in Kensington
I work purely on location so all my newborn baby photography sessions are held in my clients' homes so you can relax and we can take our time. I use only gentle natural light for my baby photography and the softest, neutral-coloured blankets and organic wraps. You can read more about my newborn baby photoshoots, including the best time to photograph your baby here.
"We had such a lovely day and the boys fell head over heels in love with her! Natural, friendly and super talented - Heather made all of us feel at ease and we are super happy with the brilliant results!"

"Oh Heather they are amazing!! Thank you so much for your beautiful photographs - you really managed to capture the personality of our family and this special time in our lives. The light is perfect and was definitely worth getting up early for on a Sunday morning! I'm so pleased that we finally managed to get some gorgeous outdoor shots of our cheeky girl too. Even my hard-to-please husband loves them (and being a film maker he is so picky)!"
