In 2019 London was crowned the world’s first ‘National Park City’ meaning that you dont have to go far to find a beautiful looking backdrop for your pictures. There are so many places to choose from when it comes to capturing family photographs outdoors and lets face it, letting the little ones run wild and free is one of my secret weapons!
I may currently be a city girl but my heart lies somewhere in a meadow (not literally!) and Ive made it my business to seek out the wilder looking parts of London so we can wander amongst the long grass hunting for bugs and play hide and seek behind the mighty oak trees! The great Royal Parks will always be a firm favourite for many of my clients and they offer an iconic and often beautifully manicured backdrop but if you look carefully you will find the wilder parts of these parks too, and often avoid the crowds at the same time.
Take a look at this selection of places that I have discovered on my travels as a family photographer in this great city.
