Family photoshoot outdoors | South London

Unfortunately, with the new Lockdown restrictions and London being in Tier 2, I can no longer photograph families indoors. The good news is that I can still do my outdoor family photoshoots  and with the beautiful Autumn colours currently all around us, this is the perfect time to photograph families outside. 

Parks like Peckham Rye park or Dulwich park are great outdoor locations for a family photoshoot.  I love the Sexby Garden and the Japanese garden in Peckham Rye park. I did a mini photo session there last week, and the trees are absolutely gorgeous at the moment!

I often start my Slice of Life family sessions at home, but I always try to go outside with the family as well. The playground is another fab outdoor location for a documentary family photographer. It’s perfect for lots of action shots when you are photographing slightly older children.

Apart from the park and the playground, outdoor locations for a family photo session can be found anywhere. I love the colourful graffiti walls in Peckham Rye, great background material for fun family portraits. I did a lovely on ”on location shoot” in Peckham a couple of weeks ago. 

Whether it’s a mini photoshoot in the park you’re after or a two hour “on location shoot”, if you book your outdoor family photo session now there’s still plenty of time to get your photos printed before Christmas. Don’t wait too long though!
