Kate Griffin Photography // London Family Documentary Photographer » Celebrating family life in London and across the UK

With a trio of sisters let loose in the woods, I found myself photographing a whole heap of character together with a bucket load of mischief. And that’s just how I like it.

You can try and keep up with them, but in the end, sometimes you just have to mastermind games where they run towards you, rather than away.

Or, you are in cahoots with Mum. And she has very cleverly brought along bribes. Which worked a treat.

We were so lucky with the weather and the beautiful setting sun, but only the strongest survive. By the end of the session we were down to 2 of the original 3. Not lost, or left behind, but tucked up peacefully in the pushchair.

Your kids are a complete spectrum of character. So why stop at the obvious smile? I want to do more than just capture cute. Because there is beauty in a sombre expression. There is soul in the faces I see.

I don’t offer a session that is just made up of headshot photography.

Why?

I always want to shoot more, to offer you more, to give you greater options and even more flexibility. Whether you’re a small business owner, an actor, an artist or even an opera singer (like the lovely Emily below), I think when you invest in portrait photography, you will want to have a range of images to use across websites, blogs and marketing in addition to the headshot you might need to send to a casting agent for that dream role.

I love to take the time to get to know you a little better, so that your portraits can represent the spectrum of who you are as an individual.

So you definitely will get a contemporary headshot that you can use in the traditional way.

But you’ll also get much more from me too. Our session is a collaboration because I know you have ideas about how you want to be portrayed and what you want your portraits to say about you. They don’t have to be obvious, ordinary or boring. I can take your thoughts and translate them into images that will speak louder and say more about who you are and what you offer.

So after using up the last of the window light inside her family home, Emily and I headed outside into the setting sun to take full advantage of that late afternoon glow.

If you want to invest in a portrait session like Emily’s, I’d love to photograph it. Let’s introduce the authentic you to the world.
