FAQs on Family Outdoor photography session

Where will we take our family portraits?

I love working on a location, nature has so much to offer. I love taking seasonal images. Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer! such beautiful colors and flowers. I will set up a skype call and we will discuss this beforehand and select a location that you love. I tend to work mostly outdoors and in natural light, as it will give us a great variety of backdrops on nature we can use.

What should we wear?

Oh!  you need to be just as comfortable as you can With little kids running around actively and getting dirty in mud you plan the outfits that you are happy to be walking around in. We do tend to stop and have one outfit change as this helps add more color to the shoot. I will also send you a Pinterest board to give you an idea of what to wear depending on the season we are in

What locations do you cover?

I travel up to a 50-mile radius from my place HA1, and have shot at places like Gunnersbury park, Painshill Park, Regents Park, Bushy Park Holland park, and many more! 

We are looking for a mixture of candid and posed family photos. Can you do both?

Of course, I love the documentary style and capturing the images in a natural way. You cannot fake a natural smile! with kids, natural emotions are best captured when they are not aware of it.  I take some posed images too, so if you have any poses in mind I am happy to incorporate. 

When will our photos be ready, and how many will we receive?

The process takes up to  3 weeks, I edit the best 50 of the gallery and send over the link for you to choose from the batch. You can either choose 10, 20, or all. my packages are on the Family Prices page that will help you choose the best price for you.

Can we bring along the family pet?

Oh, I love pets, Dogs, Cats, Bunnies, please bring them as long as it is safe for them! 


Small Intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall London

As the times are changing and evolving, there has been increased in Many couples booking small weddings until summer next year and have another reception next year in 2021. I have so many couples who have changed their plans this year.

This does not have to stop you and your family from marking your wedding in 2020. This Small Intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall London proved we can still celebrate love in a smaller scale and then next year we can have a big celebration.

 

Birhan opted for Old Marylebone town hall with her intimate groups of people who attended the ceremony. Iowas in the awe of how beautiful the day went. We also had enough time to walk around the area and have some couples shots for the portrait session. I never miss an opportunity to capture some group shots too, we also were able to try out the social distancing group shot on the stairs of the Town Hall.


Mehndi ceremony in an Indian wedding ceremony , Barnet, Potters Bar

Indian Mehndi, Vidhi and Haldi ceremony , Potters Bar

Prima’s Mehndi took place at Potter’s bar, at one of our family friends house. Well, it was a family affair and it was a good one. I love taking pictures of my family and have the advantage of being really close to the bride and the family.

The mehndi ceremony is an auspicious ceremony, which since ancient times represents the purity and cleansing of the soul. The smell of hena is supposed to be healing and calming for the bride to calm their last-minute nerves and help with all the stress of the wedding. This is just my interpretation of the ceremony..hehe, don’t quote me on this.

I was able to capture these happy moments for the family and be the part of the day too. Prima looked absolutely gorgeous in the two outfits she wore. I was so happy I got to capture some beautiful portraits of Prima and her sister Rachana.
