One of the most incredible family photography experiences for me are those of the families I get to see growing up every year, photographing them at a new stage; maybe a new addition, maybe those babies are now big girls and boys taking the lead of the photoshoot or maybe that newborn we photographed last year is now walking! Which was the case for this spring family photoshoot we had under the blossoms in Teddington last year! Just on time, before I pop!
Yes, I was 8 months pregnant at the time, full of energy though! you can imagine how it was to run after 3 energetic kids with a heavy camera! I had the absolute best time although could not properly walk back home afterwards! and am so happy to have had a chance to photograph this beautiful family again at this stunning season. Click here to see them 2 years earlier, when the little boy was only a few weeks old!
NOW is the best time for an update on the family photos.
Wait 6 months, to find time, warmer weather or any other reason and you will miss a few things in their characteristic, habits and even expressions, changed forever!
Like to know how the session flow?
We simply began walking and talking, the kids running around and calling for me to listen to them, take photos or just to run after them to find hidden gems here and there. At this particular session, everyone was curious about my pregnancy and how I feel and lots of support and advices from this amazing mamma of three I received that day.
Our first stop was under the blossom threes, where we laughed, played, hugged
then carried on walking, playing and talking newborns!
The daffodils was the next stop, the beautiful backlight through their hair, made these photos look even more dreamy. The season was the perfect time for the stunning colours and the weather although a bit chilly was the best to make new family memories.
We then walked through the woods, over the bridge and had a simple picnic to hear more stories from the girls.
With the wind began to blow, the hats and scarves were out, the final part of out session looked more like a winter shoot!
Enjoy seeing these moments, and remember to capture yours while they are there, the childhood, that cheekiness, and just them being children! Before growing up and evolving into the next stage.. while they are still very little..
with all your own special uniqueness!
In every family photography experience my goal is to capture your family as you are, your moments as they reveal, your unique connection at every stage of life.
When our children start to have their own family,
that is when we are asked more often how everything was when they were kids?
How our days were with little kidos running around? How was our moments, laughters, cryings and how did we all feel at that time?
These photos, the albums, all our memories up on the wall,
are there to tell our stories…
when they ask in future …
how things were.. when they were little…
Children are little only for a little while…
Capture those moments on time!
and what is a better gift for grandparents than a gorgeous photo of all their beloved children and grandchildren!
