London Maternity Photography Shoot at Battersea Park with Sarah
It was such a pleasure to photograph Sarah for her London Maternity Photography session on a beautiful sunny day in Battersea Park South West London. With the River Thames running past the park with views of Chelsea Bridge to the East and Albert Bridge to the West, it is such a picturesque place to have a Photo Shoot.
Sarah got in contact with me when she was 38 weeks, so it was literally a couple of weeks before her baby girl was due. We decided to meet by the Peace Pagoda next to the River, on a gorgeous summer day in May, where we could get stunning shots of Chelsea Embankment and the Bridges as backdrops. Also, the Peace Pagoda is such an iconic place in Battersea Park alongside the Zoo and bandstand that we had to get images with Sarah there.
The morning was gorgeous; the sun was shining with a cool breeze and it was just a perfect peaceful day for a London Maternity Photography session. We started out taking portraits next to the River changing the view from Chelsea Bridge, Albert Bridge and Chelsea Embankment. We then move a small garden with the Peace Pagoda in the background, before then moving to the Peace Pagoda itself.
We chatted quite a lot through the session, finding out that she had two other girls, move from USA 8 years ago with her husband and, also was in the middle of moving house!
We moved the session towards the centre of Battersea Park taking in the long grass and some of the other beauties in the park including Russell Page Garden.
After a quick outfit change we went to the famous Bandstand for a few iconic images and then finally ending the session next to the Fountains (which decided to stop when we wanted them in the background)
It was such a pleasurable photoshoot and look forward to doing more of these sessions in the future.
Below is some of my favourite images from Sarah’s London Maternity Photography session.
