Summer tea party mini-photosession @ Stepney City Farm | London Portrait Photographer

It might have been the perfect venue for a summer photo-shoot, except that on the day itself, it didn’t just rain, it poured. But we didn’t let this dampen our excitement! The farm animals were kind enough to lend us a clean shelter with a small skylight where we set up our props. We made it look festive despite the downpour. There were delicious cakes and tea aplenty in the cosy waiting area whilst families where led under golf umbrellas and buggy rain covers towards our homey animal shelter.

Thankfully, the sun came out a little while later for short periods. We took these brief opportunities to capture images under cloud and sky instead of barn roof! Here are some images from the day.

Thank you to Stepney City Farm, especially Jessica, for being so helpful and giving us access to all areas. Thank you to the Tower Hamlets NCT volunteers Ceri, Adele, Kerry and Vanda for all the admin, time, cakes and serving they did so excellently. Thank you to my lovely assistant Lisa Warren for helping me get through the day!

And finally, thank you to all the families for making it happen! Here are your photos.
