Family Photographer North London
Photographing families in a lockdown world
Diversifying in these weird old times – who isn’t eh? At the start of this lovely lock-down, I imagined I’d just down tools, start frantically cleaning and de-cluttering and focus on getting the youngest one to do his schoolwork. All whilst keeping everything crossed that a vaccine would be found in a few weeks and I’d be tootling back to work. Ok – artistic license there, I’m not quite that stupid but I certainly didn’t think I’d be shooting anyone for a good long while. I certainly didn’t think I’d start being super busy as a family photographer again!
Then, during a lengthy WhatsApp conversation on our road group (probably regarding cardboard donations for junk modeling or the like) I had the idea of doing my family photography in people’s doorways as a reminder for us all of these unique strange times. I didn’t realise then that that would actually be my route back into the shooting world and that I’d get quite so busy!
Family photographer London – shooting on a doorstep
So here I am now, having posted some artwork onto the local social media groups – booking in the great and the good of North London! I’m no longer sitting at home, instead, I’m scooting around in my car shooting lovely North London families all as they emerge looking glorious. Whether in Muswell Hill, Crouch End, Highgate, Hampstead or further afield I’ve covered them all! Having brushed their hair and applied their first dose of make-up in months, these lovely families have opened their door to me (literally).
Professional headshots on the doorstep too
In the beginning, I was only offering Family Photography and had a huge response to that. Having realised how gorgeous the lighting is as I shoot through the open front door into the dark hallway beyond I’ve been converted and am now offering these to anyone needing a great new professional headshot too. It’s a brilliant way to take your business to the next level, to give it the ‘face’ it deserves – yet not to have to actually leave your home to do it! And let’s face it – lockdown, relaxed lockdown or no lockdown – none of us really want to leave our houses at all at the moment do we?
I actually think that I’ll be shooting this way for rather a long way to come now – even without this horrid virus, it’s a lovely way to work – and the pictures speak for themselves (though I say so myself! ;))
If you think any of this sounds appealing please do get in touch for a chat – oh and I forgot to add – these doorstep photoshoots are HALF THE PRICE of my normal ones….
