Thoughts, stories and tips from Team Perfocal.

Welcoming a new child into the world is a pivotal moment in a family's life and one of those milestones that need to be captured for the sake of posterity.

To do just that, Jonathan decided he wanted to organise a fun family photoshoot to celebrate the imminent arrival of his baby daughter.

So in April 2021, Jonathan contacted Perfocal and described his requirements. His wife was already five months pregnant at the time, so they wanted to ensure that the photoshoot was as relaxed as possible.

They also wanted to make sure their young son also got to be part of the action, so they decided they'd like the shoot to take place close to their home in the lovely leafy London suburb of Islington.

After receiving Jonathan's request, the team at Perfocal got to work straight away, matching the family with our fabulous London-based photographer, Giulia.

Within a few hours of his request, Giulia contacted Jonathan, and they arranged for the photoshoot to take place at beautiful Highbury New Park, which is a stone's throw away from the couple's home in Islington.

With it being springtime in London, it made sense to make the most of a spell of good weather and arrange the photoshoot as soon as possible.

Type of shoot: Family

Location: Highbury New Park, Islington, London

Package: 2 hours (£189)

Add-ons: All original files (£19)

Photographer: Giulia L

On the day of the shoot, Giulia arrived in Islington fully equipped and bursting with ideas of capturing the family having fun in their local environment.

Having spent time talking with the couple, Giulia had built a great rapport with them in advance, and the whole family felt comfortable from the get-go. She even managed to put the family's toddler at ease and get him to have fun in front of the camera.

Giulia did a magnificent job shooting the family. She managed to strike the perfect balance between candid shots of the family having fun and playing outdoors and more formal portraits of the family members.

Over the course of a 2-hour photoshoot, not only did Giulia snap a diverse range of shots featuring various interesting backdrops, she even allowed the family to do a costume change and took a few extra relaxed photos of them in their home!

All in all, it was a fantastic afternoon out in Islington celebrating this lovely family and their much-anticipated new addition.

Perfocal was so glad to have the pleasure of working with this beautiful little family. We were delighted to hear that Jonathan and his wife were so happy with the service provided that they are looking to book another session with us for a 'welcome to the world' newborn photoshoot when their baby girl arrives in August.

Congrats to the family. We can't wait to meet your new arrivals soon and wish you all the best for the future.
