A Family Shoot at the Barbican
London Family Photography.
I ended 2018 on a bit of a high with this Barbican family photography shoot on the last day of the year! One of the super pros being a London Family Photographer are all the new, different and unique locations you visit and photogtaph for each shoot, but here at The Barbican has proven to be one of the coolest yet. If you’re not from this part of the woods, the Barbican Complex houses families in a very iconic brutalist estate, as well being home to the famous Barbican Centre. The buildings are quite imposing, towering over you, but draped with so much greenery it’s a bit like the wildlife is starting to take over. I love it. I hope soon to do another shoot here, but taking advantage of the famous Barbican Conservatory (get in touch if this sounds like your kind of family shoot!)
For this London Family Photography shoot the family really wanted their home in the Barbican to play an important part in the images, from their incredibly well styled interior (that’s what happen’s when you get to photograph architects!) to the striking architecture of the estate. It was such a fun adventure shooting this sweet, funny and welcoming family – I even got a mini tour of the area!
A few things I learnt from this shoot: I absolutely adore shooting families through windows! it just adds another level of interest to the images. I equally love photographing families surrounded by all the plants! And, I must visit more iconic areas of this city, I have been living in London for six years and this was my first time to the Barbican! So, more Barbican family photography please. Well more urban family photography, as I love incorporating some more of the edgier side of the city into my images.
