Chelsea Town Hall Wedding

Happy Anniversary weekend to this gorgeous pair!

This time last year they were tying the knot at Chelsea Town Hall and celebrating with their closest friends and family……and their daughter Florence, the cutest little flower girl I ever did see! After the ceremony we took a walk to Albert Bridge for some couple shots, it was pretty magical….

2016: Family & Photography

2017-01-16_0006

2016 was packed full of love and I was invited along to capture it all! Family has always been at the heart of what I do, it’s the reason I love my job so much and last year it shone through more than ever.  I met some lovely new families, caught up with some familiar faces and we even started a little family of our own with the arrival of Hetty!

Juggling Hetty and my photography meant it was definitely a year of multi-tasking…..I learnt to edit with Hetty strapped to me in a baby carrier, I fed her in between speeches at a wedding and travelled to Italy with her at 3 months old to photograph a family wedding!

2016 was full of love, chaos and fun…..and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Thanks for a great year!

Happy 6 Months!

2016-08-31_0006

This has been my first blog post for a while as a certain little lady has been keeping me very busy! I’ve had some time out on maternity leave to throw myself into family life and the joys and challenges of motherhood.  I’m loving being Hetty’s mummy and can’t believe she’s 6 months today!…..it’s been amazing watching her grow every day and learn new tricks, her favourites at the moment are blowing raspberries and doing a bit of downward dog (she must have been paying attention at baby yoga!)

Through the haze of sleepless nights I’ve tried to pick up my camera (or phone camera mainly as it’s always close by!) as much as I can but I really wanted some nice photographs of us all together as a family so booked a shoot with Eline, you can see more of her lovely work here.  It was a great experience and  a good reminder of how it feels to be on the other side of the camera….I had the same thoughts as a lot of mums who book a shoot with me; how can I persuade Dad in to doing the shoot?! what if my baby screams the whole time? what should we wear?  Eline instantly put us at ease, it was nice and relaxed and we all really enjoyed it….even Jack!

Having these precious newborn photographs of Hetty has made me even more passionate about doing the same for other families and I’m really excited to start shooting again!  I’m now taking bookings for October onwards so please get in touch if you would like me to photograph your family.

Chelsea Maternity Shoot with Jojo Maman Bébé

2015-05-27_0004

The sun was shining, the blossom was in full bloom….a perfect day for an outdoor maternity shoot in Chelsea! I’ve had the idea of doing a shoot in Chelsea for a while now and when a collaboration for a street style shoot with JoJo Maman Bébé came up it was the perfect location!  Emily was the model for the day, we worked together previously in Beauty & Fashion PR and she now writes for her blog blogmebeautiful.  It was great to meet up and work together again, I scouted locations while Emily selected some gorgeous outfits from the JoJo Maman Bébé Spring/Summer 2015 collection, we had a fun afternoon catching up and creating some gorgeous natural maternity images….

Jacob George, 11 days new

2015-05-11_0001

Meet my new little friend Jacob George!

I’ve been so excited about doing this shoot ever since my friend’s Jo and Mark announced they were pregnant and I knew I would get to photograph their new arrival! You may recognise Jo from her recent maternity shoot which you can see here and Mark designed my website for me!  It was so lovely seeing them settling into parenthood and finding their way through it together, they make such a great team! Jacob is a real cutie and was very chilled out for his photo shoot, he was loving all the kisses and cuddles with his mum and dad….and a few with Aunty Laura too!!

Maternity Shoot in London Chelsea

2015-04-09_0005

This week I photographed a collaboration maternity shoot in London Chelsea with JoJo Maman Bébé and lovely Emily from www.blog-me-beautiful.com.  The images are under wraps for now but I can share with you a few shots of Emily in her ‘model’s own’ outfit taken at the end of the shoot.  We found a quiet little mews just off the King’s Road, it was lined with gorgeous white town houses and a white brick wall which made the perfect backdrop.  Emily looks so amazing pregnant, love her maternity style!….. it’s not surprising that passers-by kept stopping to say how gorgeous she looked!
