An summer family session in Hyde Park

Hyde Park Family Photography Session

Hyde Park is a gorgeous location for a photo session, especially for a family with young kids. There's so much space to run around, so many different wooded glades to play hide-and-seek or find pixies (we did a lot of that on this session!), and it's just as gorgeous in the autumn as it is in spring or summer.

For this session we arrived bright and early, around 7:30am just as the city is beginning to make their way to work, the sun is still low in the sky, and the grass is still wet with dew. Beautiful light, and all that open space almost entirely to yourselves, it's a great time to make some fun photos with the kids.

There wasn't any great 'plan' here, we just rocked up, and went for a walk - well, mum and dad went for a walk, and the kids hurtled all over the place chasing, and racing, and doing plenty of pixie-hunting. The Hyde Park pixies look after the park at night, and are friends with all the animals - but don't worry if you never see any, because they're magical and very good at hiding - although if you're very quiet you might be able to hear them sleeping... True fact!

Here's some of my favourites from this Hyde Park family session. If you like my style and want to capture your own family memories in and around London - or anywhere that's special to you - just get in touch and we'll set up a good time to have a chat.
