Summer Family lifestyle photography shoot Kingston upon Thames

Running through the grass

Seeing as it is a miserable rainy day outside and I am full of cold and surrounded by tissues, vics vapour rub and my dogs Reggie and Rosie snuggled up beside me, I thought it would be a good idea to show this lovely shoot from last year.  I have so many shoots I haven’t blogged or mentioned yet and so here we have Jean, David and Noah!

I met Jean at a local Christmas fair last year and she loved the example of the lifestyle album that I had on view and so we arranged to make a date when the weather had started to get better to do the shoot of her family.

An example of my Rossini lifestyle albums is here and this is what inspired Jean to commission me.

Rossini Lifestyle Albums

We started the session in a local park in Kingston  and although I did some group shots I was just following a formality that I go through as I knew that Jean wanted photo journalistc images.  So after a couple of shots I just directed them to a certain extent but really I was there to document them having fun together.

When I came to edit this shoot – boy did I have a job!  Such a photogenic family but I had so many stories to tell!

Treasure hunting

I love the images of Noah above in the grass – he seems to blend in so well with his fabulous blonde hair!

The one thing that I have many parents say to me when they commission a photography session is that they don’t want to be in the photos!  I say that the images aren’t for them but for their children in years to come to look back at themselves as a family…

Relationships and showing what fun you have as a family is what I do and the images above and below are a perfect example.

Jean and David bought a 16×12 Rossini lifestyle album and I know it is greatly treasured!
