Dumplings, Labradoodles and RPatz: The Lam Family

Back to blog

Asian family portraits London

I’m Hollie and this is my first blog post. Very exciting!

I photograph all sorts of families at Julia Boggio Studios, but I had such fun with the Lams. They brought along Teddie the Labradoodle, who completely stole the show. And a couple of dumplings, too.

Turns out that the dad is a chef, so they brought in loads of cooking props and 50 dumplings that they had made that week. As soon as the wrappings came off, Teddie went wild. Obviously a big dumpling fan. In this action shot below, you can see a dumpling falling off the tray and Teddie is ready to pounce. I was ready to fight him for it – they smelled so good. He won, though.

The Lams were so into the shoot and came ready to enjoy themselves. I loved that they brought along changes of clothes: hoodies for everyone in one shot and then clothes in different shades of red for another. When clients think about their clothing, it helps us to create even more amazing images for them.

You could just tell that they all loved each other and that’s what I wanted to capture. I thought it was funny that they called their brother RPatz, as they think he looks like the Chinese version of him. I can totally see it!

Here’s what they had to say about us: “We chose JBS because it was a recommendation from a friend who had wedding photos taken and we thought they were fun and innovative. We really wanted a professional shoot to get some pictures that we could hang up. It was our first time!

“We loved the friendly staff, the photographer and comfortable studio. Our photographer [that’s me!] was great, she put us in good positions and had good ideas and was patient with our suggestions and wardrobe changes.

“Overall, it was a friendly and welcoming, yet professional service.”

Thank you again. We loved having you at our studio!

  1. Thanks Hollie! We had a great shoot with you and absolutely love the photos that we now have to cherish. I’m sure my brother will be grateful that his RPatz name is getting out there. We would recommend Julia Boggio to anyone!
