It is wonderful taking photographs for return clients as I get to see their family grow and expand. I photographed Emma and her family on a few occasions before, and this time we arranged the photo session to mark her younger daughter's first birthday. We met in beautiful Ruskin park in Denmark Hill to take some location shots. I passed by the park many times and always wanted to visit but never had an opportunity. The park was named afrter John Ruskin, who was a prominant art critic in the Victorian era and lived in the area. I also discovered that it was used as a location for Pink Floyd's first photoshoot, shot by photographer Colin Prime. The park, with its many distinct sections, provided the perfect backdrop for family photographs. It was a beautiful but very cold November morning when we met, still a few leaves left on some of the branches. I took several family portraits around the bandstand, and then moved around the park to find suitable backdrops for children portraits and action shots (and to keep warm!). After about an hour in the cold, we headed back for a cup of tea and some play time at home. There I captured the girls having some quiet reading time with their dad, playing games and enjoying each other's company. Here is a selection of some of the photos from the day. Hope you enjoy them!
I met and photographed some amazing people (and pets!) this year. I can't wait to face many adventures and challenges 2018 will bring. Hope you all have a great evening and a fantastic New Year!
Today is my family Slava, a serbian orthodox tradition celebrating our family's patron saint, archangel Michael. It is a day spent with family and friends, so to mark the day I look back at some of my recent photoshoots which captured happy families across London and Surrey.
I met Paulina and Chris through a friend of mine so was delighted when I received and email asking me if I could take some photos to mark their engagement.
As Richmond upon Thames and Surrey wedding photographer, I work all across London, Surrey and the South East. The couple wanted a mix of greenery and urban atmosphere so we decided on London as location, and in particular Regent's park and Primrose hill as our two locations of choice. We had to work our way through the crowds in Regent's park but did eventually manage to find a few quiet spots which provided a beautiful autumnal backdrop for our photos. After some celebrity spotting (Liv Tyler and Woody Harrelson hanging out in Regent's park!) we headed towards Primrose Hill for a few city shots. We found quaint cobbled streets and lovely colourful houses which were the perfect setting for Paulina and Chris' city shots.
It is always nice to do a photoshoot for someone I know, and this one was no exeption! Below is a selection of my favourite photos from the day.
