There are some families that you know you’re going to love spending time with since the first email. The Queathem’s were one of those special families. Since the first time Candace sent me a message sharing her idea of the perfect family session I knew it would be one of a kind.
The Queathem Family just moved to London from the U.S and they wanted to capture the colorful, cosy side of London seen in the mews houses for their family session. When Candace sent me pictures of the location, I couldn’t believe I was going to shoot there. We chose the West Kensington neighborhood to be the main location of the shoot. Kynance Mews is known as one of the most beautiful streets in London. I thought it would be crowded since it is such a famous location but it is a calm, beautifully quiet neighborhood. We laughed and chatted through out the entire session. I could have stayed all day with them and almost did!
When I am photographing parents with their babies I always keep my own family in mind. I think of every single feeling that I’d want to remember years from now, I think of what my children would want to know about our relationship, and then I translate it into the images for my clients. I cherish the joy, love, wonder that we can see in these images. The wait for a second child is such a wonderful time in the life of each member of the family and I’m glad they chose me to capture this moment, saving a timeless memory and sharing it with loved ones now and in the future.
