My photo sessions with the G Family have now become something of a tradition. This is the fourth time I visit Richmond to update their family portraits, having photographed their youngest daughter since she was born. These regular photo shoots are something I always look forward to, as it never feels like work – it’s much more like spending a couple of hours with friends.
This time, we decided to take it outside and visit the breathtaking views of Richmond Hill, immortalised in all their its beauty by Reynolds and Turner in times gone by, and still largely unchanged to this day. It’s the end of summer here, there is a new chill in the air and the leaves are starting to turn. It’s a great time for a location photoshoot, and we were lucky enough to chance on a mild Saturday morning, with the sun making an appearance against all odds!
Children’s Portraits on Richmond Hill
The girls loved running up and down the hill, exploring and picking wild flowers. The scenery unfolding behind them as they did so was so beautiful, I could not stop looking – or indeed, taking photos. The river flowing behind them, and layers of trees stacking in the distance – it looked like a carefully constructed theatre set, except that it was vast, natural and sweeping. Unbelievable to think that such a place can be found in such close proximity to London!
Mum and Dad were, as always, so chilled out and fun to photograph alongside their beautiful little girls. We captured a wealth of candid moments alongside a couple of more set-up family images (it is nearly Christmas after all, those photo cards aren’t going to shoot themselves 😀 ) – so much variety! I will post a wider selection from this photo session once I have finished editing it, so for now here is a little collage of the girls playing. Love these two!
