Outdoor family photography in North London
When you’re having an outdoor family photoshoot, you want it to be relaxed, spontaneous, and a little bit wild, right?! Like you went exploring the outdoors together as a family one morning, and you all just happened to look amazing at the same time!
So rather than static poses on well-manicured lawns, let’s go for an adventure together somewhere untouched, unkempt. You know…somewhere that isn’t quite so obviously in Central London! We’ll go for a walk in the woods or through wild grassland. We’ll play some games, have fun together, and let the kids run around and explore. I don’t want it to be an outing purely for the sake of photos. I want to give you guys a chance to connect, let loose and enjoy the experience as a family.
But secretly there’ll always be intention behind every game, an idea for a shot I have in mind, or a beautiful photo I want to capture. So while you’re making memories, I’ll be carefully composing my shots, finding the best light and creating beautiful, stylish art for your walls. But don’t mind me, you’ll be having too much fun to notice.
Smiles so wide you’ll hear the laughter through the frame
Some of my favourite times as a parent have been simple days out on the heath, or in the woods with my girls. Rolling around in the sun together and coming home all covered in grass. Playing hide and seek behind inch-thick trees, or kicking our way through piles of autumn leaves. There’s something about being outside as a family that brings out the best in us.
My outdoor family photoshoots aren’t complicated or fussy, because sometimes simple is best. I want to give you stylish, natural family photos filled with movement, energy and love. If you love the memory, you’ll love the photo. And I can guarantee you’ll love the memory.
If these are the kind of family photos you’d love, get in touch today and let’s chat.
My North London outdoor family photoshoots are:
Guided but natural and unposed
Focused on your connection as a family
More of an outdoor adventure than a photoshoot

We’ll meet up, have a chat and all get to know each other before I start shooting. Then once you’re comfortable and I’ve made friends with the kids, we’ll start the shoot. I only ever book one family shoot per day, so I won’t be rushing you or clock-watching. Let’s just relax, take our time and enjoy the experience together.
As soon as you know when you might want your shoot, please get in touch. My diary usually books up a few months in advance, especially on weekends. I generally run my outdoor sessions from March-October but if you book outside this time and are keen on an outdoor shot, we can have a chat about the pros and cons (and I do recommend having an indoor location as a back up just in case!).
Your gallery and slideshow will be ready for viewing a few weeks after your shoot. I'll check in with you to ask when the most convenient time is, then send it over when you decide is best. Once opened, it will stay active for 72 hours for you to choose and download your included images and decide if you'd like to upgrade. If you decide to do so, it will stay open for a further month for you to download your additional images and choose any products.
'STUNNING PICTURES TO CHERISH FOR MANY YEARS TO COME'
Melissa was very professional...she was able to ease us into the photos and gave us clear directions of how to pose and keep relaxed. It was surprisingly fun! We absolutely love our family photos for my baby’s first birthday. So fortunate to have stunning pictures to cherish for many years to come. Highly recommend for family and newborn photos!
