I love these 3

Weekends like this. Families like this.

Forget fun in the sun, this is a typical wet and cloudy day in London, but that didn’t stop these guys from doing what they do best.

It never does.

These kids certainly know how to have fun together, and that’s where the magic is at.

But even beyond that they have something special between them and it’s so good to see it at times like this.

Real life, no frills, down to earth, gritty family shots, that just tell it like it is.

Family Photography sessions with Samantha Black

Family sessions are sessions where I really concentrate on capturing the real essence of your family.  It will be images that come out of a session like this that your children will look back at and remember. They will remember you, their family, and that time, so it’s really important to get them right, for all of you.

I am here to make sure that I capture your beautiful family the best way that I know, so that you have something to love and cherish, forever. I can honestly say that although I want to create images that you will love for years, I wish so much more to create portraits for you that last for generations and finished products that will be cherished by your children, and their children. I sincerely believe that you deserve to have a professional product when you have a session with me, which is why I am in love with creating beautiful portraits that will hang on my clients’ walls for a lifetime.

 Location

For family sessions I like to keep them really relaxed and personal to you so I can come to your home or meet you at a location of your choice. If you have garden space we could also incorporate that too.

Although I can work both in or outdoors for family sessions, I do not specialise in posed studio background type shots, so if this is something you think you might like, let me know and I’ll see if I can help recommend someone to you.

I always think that you, the parents are the best ones to decide whether its best to have your photos at home, or outside, since you know your children best. Plus it also depends on whether you would like a plain background and more posed studio type shoot, or whether you would like a more natural looking shoot.  I recommend we choose what works most for your children, so that we have the best chance we can of getting good shots

Groups
In terms of getting individual shots and group, I will aim to get as many ‘combinations’ as I can, and I will ask you to tell me what it is you really want, this will help me get what you want out of the session

What to wear
In a nutshell, keep it  fairly timeless but choose clothing that you like on you and your children. If you like bold colour, please keep colours complimentary, avoid obvious logos, think about how you would like to look as a family and also, when choosing clothing try to avoid items that may look too dated in many years to come. If you prefer naturals, great, just keep the tones fairly complimentary throughout.
Feel free to have 2 or 3 outfits ready to choose from, I am happy to have a look over these when I arrive and discuss options and combinations with you.
When, where and how long?
Sessions always take place in the comfort of your own home and/or at a location of your choice. Family sessions usually take between 2-3 hours.
How to best represent your session
Albums are popular for family sessions are are fine art prints and wall art.  You have to ask yourself what is the way that we see ourselves enjoying these images best? Once you know this, I can help you achieve your goals.

Forever portraits: Daddy and baby

Forever portraits I call them.

Forever portraits for me are those really special moments between a father his newborn, baby or child.

If I’m honest, my upmost favourite portraits I have of my second child when he was a newborn was one that I took of him and my husband (first image below). And 4 and a half years ago when my son was born I wasn’t a professional newborn photographer. Even so, it was the portrait that I knew I had to have.

And I don’t regret it for one second.

Some of the portraits you see below are quite posed, other are less so.  But whichever portrait style I am photographing, I can guarantee there will be that one moment when I can sense that feeling. Sometimes it’s awe I see, or laughter in their eyes, maybe is just pure love, or sheer happiness, but there is always something… and I will always notice it.  Because I love it.

It’s probably why I love my job so much. I get to witness moments like that. Priceless.

Even in between the awkward moments of baby accidents (which can sometimes happen during a dad shot!), it’s there.

So, if you are not sure whether a portrait like this is for you, hopefully after reading this, you will know one way or the other.

My forever photograph – Family Photography North London

This photograph was taken almost a year ago during my favourite season…

A photograph can tell a thousand words they say.

I don’t often get many photographs of my children together but I love every single one that I have of them.

Just because.

And yes, it is a little cheesy for my personal taste, but within this image there is a back story. So many memories and it makes me smile every time I see it on my walls.

He was asleep in the car, and after a 30 min nap I woke him, because the light was disappearing and his nap was a very late one, so he wasn’t in the best of moods (parents I hear your sighs, because we have all been there). It took a little while but we got there and in the end he gave me that look I know so well.

I see this face. Every. Single. Day.

And I’ll remember this face forever.

When he is towering over me, I’ll remember that face.

At every milestone, I’ll remember that face.

My daughter although becoming a little impatient, she managed to connect with her little brother so well at this moment in time, so effortlessly. She made this photograph. She is beautiful inside and out. And I thank her. I thank her for the love she has and gives.

I’ll remember how she made me feel right then in that moment.

I realised right then in that very moment that the bond they have is so very special.

Something they will have forever.

I will remember this forever and they will know how much this meant to me even when I am gone.

Because they will have this printed photograph in an album. In a box. On a wall.

Whatever. Wherever.

His face. Her smile. My everything.

Yes, this photograph can tell a thousand words. For me.

Autumn is coming

Emily, Dario, Luca and Valentina – Family Photography London

Emily, Dario, Luca and Valentina – Family Photography London

Family sessions are fun, eventful and energetic. This session was all of these things, and more.

Valentina and Luca were so easy to be around and wonderful children to photograph.

I felt I had gained 2 new little friends (especially Valentina) when I left their home!

Sessions like this really do make it hit home as to how important it is to get these family photographs, even if it is silly, fun and full of laughter, and sometimes the occasional tear.

But that’s okay.

Because that’s what family life is like. Maybe not all of the time, I know. But it’s all of those time that we will want to remember.

Especially when our children are silly, funny and make us laugh.

That’s the best time to get them photographed, without a shadow of a doubt.

Emily and Dario, you were amazing to work with,  thank you for inviting me into your beautiful home.

Baby Ayven – Newborn Photography North London

I love it when I step into people’s homes and get a first glimpse at the new baby.  Ayven was fairly small with fine features and a full head of hair – just gorgeous.

Yes, this perfect little man was tiny but oh so lovely in every way.

He totally rocked his Daddy shot as did Dad…of course.

I am totally in love with his nest image.

A beautiful family in so many ways.

Jacob and Freddie

Meet Jacob and Freddie.

2 gorgeous little boys with so much energy.

Mum and Dad wanted natural photos of their boys doing exactly what they love to do as well a one or two photos of all of them together. We visited a beautiful enchanting gardens that the boys love to go to, and it was there that I managed to capture them in their element. Whether running, jumping or exploring, the boys had so much fun and so did I. Plus I felt like I had a mini workout too – always a bonus 😉
