This lovely family from Chiswick commissioned me to take some natural family and maternity photographs in gorgeous Richmond Park, South West London. Lisia is expecting her second baby girl and was really keen to include her cheeky 3 year old daughter Sansia in the portraits too to mark the occasion.
Children’s portrait photography
It is so common for parents to contact me and mention their concern about photographing their energetic little ones! As Lisia put it - her "super-active-very-difficult-to-photograph 3yr old”! iPhones will struggle with fast moving subjects, but fortunately both my camera equipment and my skills are more than a match for toddlers running around at full pace… this is the norm and I am well used to it!
Outdoor pregnancy photos
These pregnancy portraits were all taken around sunrise in Richmond Park, which is such a lovely time of day with absolutely luminous light and very few people around! Lisia wore a beautiful semi-sheer cream maternity dress from Mamalicious which worked beautifully well; cream and lace always look lovely on camera.
This is what Lisia had to say once she saw her gallery!
"Oh Heather they are amazing!! Thank you so much for your beautiful photographs - you really managed to really 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) - We will have a hard time choosing the best ones!"
If you are interested in your own family photoshoot or pregnancy portraits in London, or further afield I would be thrilled to hear from you.
