Christmas at Petersham Nursery – family photography in Richmond


A visit to Richmond-upon-Thames isn’t complete without a walk along the river to Petersham Nursery. It’s a little place of calm, on the outskirts of the bustling city, and the perfect place to while away a few hours, either in the restaurant-Caf or The Teahouse. The glasshouses are stocked with the most beautiful flowers, plants and homewares – it’s impossible to come away empty handed (as my husband will vouch!).

When choosing the location for your family photo shoot it is so important to pick somewhere meaningful, and where you all enjoy spending time together. This could be your home, local park or, in the case of this family, the place your enjoy relaxing and eating good food. I met this couple and their cheeky little man for some cake at The Teahouse and then we wandered around the nursery grounds. It really was the most perfect setting to capture some seasonal, and rather Christmassy, shots of the family together. Thank you to them, and Petersham Nursery, for a lovely afternoon!
