London Family Photography

Wayne La

Local London photographer

I had such a great time hanging out with Paul, Kara and their two little ones.  Hailing from The Golden State of California, these guys were on their first visit to London.

Having only had a couple of nights to acclimatise, all four of them were raring to go.  It must’ve been the hearty English breakfast and the glorious spring sunshine that did it.  Actually, I’d promised the girls that if we got close enough to Buckingham Palace, they might be able to wave to the queen through her window, but she probably had a lie-in from the previous day’s hand-waving exertions.

As a family photographer in London, the priority for me is to capture personalities and to let families be themselves.  Posing is of course part and parcel of portrait photography, but that doesn’t need to be cheesy or stiff.  I’m not just taking your photo, I’m hanging out with you and being part of your party.  Who doesn’t like photos that are natural and full of moments?
