    Why you don’t have to worry about your kids misbehaving during your family photoshoot

    Why I’m not worried about your kids misbehaving during your photoshoot. Errrm… because basically, I really don’t mind. As long as they stay clear of the camera gear, I’m cool with that.  Let them be kids, run wild, jump up and down and be kids. This is what I really want from them. And sometimes this level of hyper can lead to images like this… Now, if, however, you’re looking…

  • The girl in the red dress

    So I used to only work with neutral colour palettes…. but this past year I’ve definitely found a love for colour in ways I haven’t felt before. In particular warmer colours like mustard, rust, yellows and all shades of red are all pretty much up there for me. They are warm and warming. I love how the editing can also make certain colours even more warm and yummy. I’m Samantha.…

  • The End of Lockdown is in sight – Mother and Child Photography London

    So I’m taking bookings for babies due around September onwards plus family, portrait and any other soulful, warming session that comes my way. I can’t wait for the cuddles and emotions, the tears and laughter and the complete craziness that come with what I do. And Mamas, please I’m dying to shoot more Mamas and their babes, so please, if you’re looking for an intimate session with your baby or…

  • 20 Children’s Portraits I still love!

    I’ll never stop loving these…. all were taken during outdoor Family Photography sessions or Portrait Photography sessions in the last 8 years. I love looking back at my work. I’ve been a photographer for almost 9 years. I can’t even believe it because my style has changed and I’ve really found my groove. I’m also starting to get the itch to help others more and more. Something I never really…

  • Who here has lost count of the weeks?

    Who here has lost count of the weeks? For me, this is my daily. I don’t know when things will improve and what will be the next step. I know they will. And I’m good with that. Sometimes I forget that it really doesn’t matter where we are. Quarantine or not, ‘here’ is just fine. But what about you? What’s going on for you? I’ve spent the last couple of…

    Spoiling our children

    What does it mean to spoil our children? When we ‘spoil’ our children we often refer to material gifts and over indulging our kids. Gifts however can include material gifts and, can also include sacrificing your own time and freedom to give your kids whatever it is you want to give them. Put simply, it’s overindulging your kids. It’s sometimes tricky to make the distinction between what is ‘too much’…

    Natural Family Photography Islington

    Natural Family Photography Islington Sessions like this are some of my favourite family sessions to do. Children are often playing, laughing and just having a great time. Yes they may get dirty, but oh they will laugh. I’ll capture them both how I see them and how you see your children. All the while I’m there capturing it all and of course setting up a few portraits in between. When…

    Family Photography North London  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…

    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…
