Lucy and Hayden's engagement shoot in France by Roshni Photography Harrow

Family and couples Shoot while practising social distancing London

Family  and couples shoot while practicing social distancing London

While we are now going to be practising social distancing to be safe the Family and couples shoot on locations such as your back garden or the park is the way forward!. Most of my shoots consist of me shooting from a distance and getting the shots we need 

Most of us are self-isolating and making sure we take care of our family, parents, and grandparents as much as we can. Most of us are also lucky enough to work from home or have requested as you are taking care of someone at home. Kids are staying home and getting used to the new routine. The shoot takes place at a location or a park where we can maintain our distance and get the shot we need. 

Couples who have got engaged during this period or have been living together for the first time ever can also take advantage of these shoots to remember this time. 

I get so many questions asked while inquiring about the outdoors sessions so I have put together some FAQs here to make it easier for you

FQAs

THE PLANNING

To book your session I take £150 deposit and the rest is paid a week before to shoot. We decide on the location of your choice and meet at the car park or at the entrance of the location. The initial consultation call, we will be discussing how many members of the family you have, what you like, and if you like to go for a theme for the shoot. This really makes the shoot fun if you are wearing theme colors, bring props, or dress up your kids or pets. 

WHAT IF THE WEATHER DOESN’T PLAY BALL ON THE DAY?

We simply reschedule… you have not seen my hair in the rain! I keep my date flexible so we can reschedule for a new date the day before. I tend to keep an eye on the weather for the days we have the shoot scheduled. 

DELIVERY OF THE IMAGES

The images are sent to you via an online gallery ready to print yourself or order them directly from my store.. It’s pretty easy. The lab will send you the print directly so there is no human contact here too. 

WHAT TO WEAR?

We will discuss this on the days coming up to the shoot and I also tend to send a Pinterest board full of ideas on what to wear. You can then decide on the color scheme you love and wear whatever you feel comfortable in.. As I said – some dressing up is also allowed for kids and pets!  Some of my family shoots are can be found HERE 

HOW WILL YOU BE SHOOTING?

I shot using a 200-700mm zoom lens so I can be as far away as I need to and shoot from a distance. The minimum distance for a full-length portrait is 3-meter maximum can be 10 meters…. So I got you covered! We can walk around keeping our distance and I can carry on shooting from a distance capturing your family having a great time out!


Mother's day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day gift ideas.

 

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. Washington Irving

 

Mother’s day is the special time of the year when you get to celebrate the love you share with your mother and the best friend. Mother’s day is also a great time of the year to show all the women in your life how much to love them and how much they meant to you. If you are looking for gift ideas for your mother, sisters, grandmas, aunts and your friend I have some ideas below that may help.

With mother’s day just around the corner its time for us to think about what we are going to buy our mother to show her how much she means to us. To be honest nothing in this world will be enough to thank our mothers who brought us into this world.

Embroidery

 

I was searching for something authentic and handmade for my mother as a Mother’s day gift. My mother is a designer and does embroidery on clothes like Indian Sarees and dresses. When I was growing up I always had the best clothes to wear on my birthday, New years and all other special occasions. Some were hand designed handicraft and embroidered by my mother. So I started researching and came across Zodiac embroidery kits: Liberty London Embroidery 

Here I found this beautiful embroidered zodiac design for my mother’s star sign. It looks so easy to make and I can embroidery myself when it arrives. The print and easy to follow instructions come with the kit. All you have to do it get started and get it ready for Mother’s day. Of course, my mother will love this as she will be proud I learned something from her after all.

Personalised gifts

Look what else I found! Personalised prezzies: http://www.prezzybox.com/personalised-gifts-for-her.aspx. I mean how amazing these gifts look. My most favorite is this framed box that you can frame the pictures around. The box can hold all the precious things and looks amazing on the dressing table

Newborn lifestyle Photography Harrow London

Family lifestyle family session

Lifestyle family portrait session takes place at the comfort of your own home at you convenient time to ensure we get the most out of the session.

Writing about this family gives me joy and pleasure. Sonal approached me via a friend and we arranged a Life style portrait session to take place at her lovely house. The session was for little Anika who is now almost 6 months. I wanted to do a lifestyle style shoot at their house to capture the essence of love Anika has brought to the family.

On the day of the shoot I arrived at 11 am and quickly scouted out the house for the space we were going to use. I love their lovely second bedroom which has lovely white walls and ambient light coming through from the large window. Lucky it was a light cloudy day and sun was on the opposite side of the room. I took some fairy lights with me to capture some for the background and used the bed as the background. I really love how comfortable Anika and her parents were as we were in the comfort of their own home. The session was complete with the selection of portraits of Anika and her parents using different parts of the house. I took some fluffy blankets to use as backdrops which blended in pretty well with the beautifully painted walls of the room.

This session was one of my favorite as to I was able to be a part of the family for a short period and capture the joy and love of the Family. My favorite shots are ones of Anika’s feet and her sleeping with her favorite bunny. She only slept for 10 minutes but I was able to capture some shots of her which turned out to be really gorgeous.

I really hope you like the selection of images of this session.
