London children’s and baby photography: Sleeping babes and family portraits

I photographed this set back in the Autumn, but have only just sat down to add these to the blog – the wait has been worth it for me though and revisiting these images to compile this post has been gratifying as I had forgotten how much I like these images – so it gives me great  pleasure to share them.

So we roll back to October and a trip out to Hertfordshire to visit this young man and his parents for a portrait shoot. Before I arrived, I had been asked to capture some strong black and white portraits and general documentary shoots of the family.   A sleeping baby greeted me, which made for a relaxed start capturing some detail and making the most of a still baby.

    Oh Wow! This takes me back – The little boy is our son, Gabriel. We had such fun and the pics are scattered (in a good way!!) across the house. He’s changed so much, we might have to get you back soon!! Thanks Andy, Jacq x
