Family photography studio Derby – photos of Lucy and Alex

I’m glad to present a new set of family photographs from the family photography studio Derby, Elen Studio Photography.
I feel very pleased and proud when my wedding couples come back to me for their baby or family photo shoot. We photographed Lucy and Alex’s wedding back in 2012, and it was so great to see them again with their little boy Maverick.

When children are 2 years ol or older it is almost impossible to photograph them in the limited space of a studio as they need to constantly move somewhere. Therefore, I prefer to do family photo shoots outdoors, on location in a park, wood etc with nice background and lots of space to run. Markeaton Park in Derby is an ideal location for such a shoot.

We started this session by simply having a stroll through the meadow and wood. Maverick needed some time to get used to two more adults with ‘strange black boxes’ in their hands.


Then Maverick got interested in sticks, new leafs, fallen tree and then it was much more easy to capture his emotions. Playing hide-and-seek is another great game to make children laugh and play and completely forget about the photographer 🙂


We all had good fun in the park, and brilliant photographs as a result. Guys, thank you so much for getting in touch and bringing Maverick – he is so lovely little boy!

Would you like to have such an experience and great photographs yourself? Give us a call or drop an email and bring your family over to photographed and have fun!

Family photographer Derby – Claire, Rob and Elliott

A new set of family and Six Plus photographs taken in Derby.

Following a newborn photo shoot of Elliott, it was great to see Claire, Rob and little Elliott again for their family photo shoot. First, we had a few shots outside and then moved indoor to complete the photo session. The coming Christmas will be the first Christmas for Elliott so we’ve decided to create the festive atmosphere a bit earlier and made it a theme of this shoot 🙂

Family photographer Derby – Jenny’s family

It was a lovely day out in Markeaton Park with Jenny and her family. I would like to note that Jenny prepared two great outfits for the shoot, not only for kids but also for both parents. It was a good decision to choose Markeaton Park – at the end of the shoot Bethany got very excited and forgot about everything for a while at the playground whilst Joshua had a nap.

At the beginning of the shoot Bethany was shy and careful with a ‘suspicious photographer’ but then we became friends so that she even allowed me to help her change her dress and hairpin 🙂 Joshua was great as well he gave lots of smiles to me 🙂

Family photo shoot of Rachel and Colin

The family photo shoot of Rachel, Colin and their lovely kids Emma and Sam, we decided to organise in Markeaton Park in Derby. The kids were in excellent mood, running around with endless energy and curiosity to things happening around. Although intially we planned more pictures of the family together, we soon realised that it is not easy to bring kids together and make them still (not to mention looking in the direction of the camera 🙂 ).
Anyway, we are very pleased about the result – natural and lovely family lifestyle photographs. Many thanks to Rachel and Colin for excellent preparation and to Emma and Sam for being so good during the shoot!

Kids photoshoot with Elena

This was a very interesting photo shoot. Children always require a special approach and this shoot was not an exception – both girls were different and we had to be quick so that capture their instantly changing emotions. Many thanks to Elena who invited us to photograph her niece and goddaughter – we had great time and lots of fun with these lovely kids.

Baby Photoshoot of Alisa

Back in 2009 we photographed wedding of Irina and Michael (click here to see the post with their wedding DVD Slideshow). This year, they have got a third member of their family – a girl, Alisa, who was born just few months ago. We were very glad to see Irina and Michael and, of course, to meet Alisa, and to capture these important moments of their family life. Here I’d like to share with you some photos from this baby photoshoot.
