NATURAL FAMILY SESSION IN HERNE HILL
At the end of October, I visited Caroline and her family for a family photography session in Herne Hill
Herne Hill is a lovely area in South London, where I used to live before moving to Beckenham. Every time I travel there I find everything so familiar that it seems that I have never moved. I have wonderful memories of the area and of the fantastic local park: Brockwell Park.
When I arrived, I spent some time playing with Caroline’s old son, 4 years old. A super clever boy, who showed me his books and his train. His little brother was still asleep so we took the opportunity to know each other better and become friends. Then the little one woke up, and we all went to say Good morning. Mum was super sweet and how lovely is it capturing everyone in the same room playing and reading stories. These moments seem to be meaningless as they are ordinary, but when they’ll be priceless before you know it. We moved upstairs to the master bedroom for more games
After a little snack, we headed off to Brockwell Park. The autumn colours were fantastic, the yellow, the brown and the red gave a good dimension to the photos. We went for a nice stroll, and then we stopped at a bench to enjoy the weather. In the meantime, I took some family portraits and captured some moments with the dad and his kids.
The session went exactly as I wanted, with no poses and with a natural flow. Just an ordinary day of a lovely family with two young kids in Herne Hill.
