Crofton Park family photographer: a one year boy old at home

This shoot was so much fun!  It is one of my absolutely favourite things when wedding clients get in touch to tell me that their families have grown.  Pete & Lou’s tipi wedding that I photographed a few years ago was absolutely epicly fun too – starting to see a pattern!  Being a St Albans family photographer means that I don’t often get to head to south London.  Therefore, working as a Crofton Park family photographer was a real treat! I just love heading to different areas, even not far from me as the variety of England keeps me feeling fresh and inspired!

Photos at home

It’s so satisfying to know that you can capture a family just being themselves and having fun. I love these relaxed moments with families just enjoying their time with each other. Furthermore, when Isaac had a teeny tiny upset about a carrot he didn’t want to eat and started flinging food, Lou & Pete just rolled with it, I kept photographing and there was no stress. While it seems a weird thing to take photos of kids while they aren’t 100% happy, these are the authentic moments that make up each day of parenthood. Before long I’m sure there will be no tantrums or tears in the same way so I hope that capturing this slice of time will remind them of all elements of when their son was a baby.

We did head out to the local park for a bit too and braved the freezing cold British winter.  I do love photos when kids are all bundled up though, don’t you?  I think little hats, wellies and coats are just about the cutest items of clothing ever!  So if you are thinking about having photos taken but want to try and gamble on the British summer, I implore you not to wait!  Yep, summer sun is wonderful, but being snuggled up at home while the rain pours outside is also such a lovely feeling.
