So it’s been a while since I blogged. Have you missed me? I’ve sure missed you! I’m hanging out on Instagram more and more these days and whilst that’s lovely I seem to have neglected my website somewhat. If you don’t already then do follow me as you’re sure to get the most recent shots on there. Oh and Insta stories, I’ve been known to share a story or two.

Anyway, I headed to South West London last week to meet these gorgeous guys below. It was really lovely. The weather was shining, I had my Spotify playlist blaring and the windows were down as it was HOT HOT HOT. I bloody love the warm weather these days. I’ve even moved my editing station (my iMac and my slippers) into the living room so I can be close to the patio doors. It’s a temporary set up but much needed having spent the winter editing in my windowless office. I don’t know about you but working from home, on your own, in your pyjamas with no daylight is not conducive to feeling amazing! So with this temp move now I have to get dressed (my neighbours appreciate that part) and I get to look out into the lovely garden with the lovely daylight and the odd spot of sunshine. It’s AMAZING!

I digress, so where was I? oh yes I’m driving in my car to meet this family.  It was a very chilled, fun session with me pulling my best moves to get those smiles. It’s a sight to behold, I’ve said this before I know but I don’t think you understand what I have to go through. They put me through my paces, and that’s just the Dads. On a serious note I am naturally carefree so it’s actually pretty easy.  This is one of the things that clients tell me in the very generous reviews they leave, apparently I put everyone at ease, do the best high pitched ‘peek-a boo’ and am pleased enough to have people laughing at me and not actually with me. Anything for the art darlings.

If you’ve read this far well done, I’m typing this quickly as my boys wrestle each other in and out of various rooms so I can’t vouch for the sense it makes.

If you’d like to invite me to sing terribly at your children to make them laugh then go ahead and contact me using the form at the end of this page. If you need a bit more convincing then have a look at the other family sessions, check out my google reviews or even give me a call.

I can’t wait to meet you!

Kew Garden Family Photo Session

Kew Garden Family Photo Session

The end of March last year looked a lot like this… so there is hope for us yet! Do you sometimes feel like winter lasts for what feels lie forever? I’m ready for the daffodils to come (back!) and for the sun to throw out even a tiny bit of heat. All of the seasons are great to photograph in but Winter just seems especially long in the UK! It seems we have to do a dance back and forth before we can finally say…’ahhhh, Spring has sprung”

Having had my busiest year to date I am catching up on blogging all of last years sessions. This was one of my Spring favourites. It was a beautiful sunny day in Kew just perfect for creating images with interesting light and colours.   I’m so pleased to share these images on the blog today and I still have some Spring/Summer dates available for family portrait shoots… so please do get in touch I’d love to hear from you.

Here is where you’ll see more recent family sessions

TWENTY SIXTEEN in RETROSPECT

Dulwich Family Photographer

Kicking off the year with a family session in Dulwich, no room is left out when it comes to shooting in your home. As the kitchen is the central hub to most homes it’s only right we take some shots in there too.

Greenwich Baby Photographer

Freja turned 1 on the day of her second portrait session with me. This birthday photo session started off outdoors but it was freezing so we took shelter in The Maritime Museum. I got down on the floor with her and grabbed this shot as she flew over to me on her hands and knees.

Limehouse family photographer

When you tun up to a photo session and both parents are musicians, I couldn’t leave without hearing a tune…

We took a stroll soon after the spontaneous family gig and this happened. I love the movement and textures in this shot

W5 newborn photographer London

Easily, one of my all time favourite shots, not just from the past year. The intimate connection here only happens when everyone lets go, forgets why they’re there and just embraces the moment. The squishy baby face, the protective arm, the tender kiss, the doting look. I can’t ask for anything more in a family photo.

Putney Family Photography – portrait session at home

I love getting to explore different parts of London, you’d think I’ve have seen it all having lived here for 17 years! but one area of London I have not explored yet is the Thames pathway in Putney. Lovely riverside walk for those of you looking for family things to do along the Thames.

Charlie and Jonathan recently moved back to the UK from Asia. They invited me round to their home in Putney, back in October, to meet their gorgeous daughter Thea and have a portrait session at home. Charlie had mentioned that Thea was very social and engaging, which she absolutely was but she never mentioned that amazing huge smile that never seems to leave! I don’t think I’ve ever met a baby that smiled so much. This girl loved the camera and lapped up the attention showered on her by Mum and Dad, and she even laughed at some of my silly faces and noises which made me happy. She made the session far too easy, I loved every second of it.

Having started the session at their home in Putney, we decided it might nice to make the most of the dry day and head out for a walk along the river. These guys only live a stones throw from it so it made sense. Thea loved the fresh air and although she could hardly smile more than she did at home, she gave it a good go!

If you live near Putney and would like a family session please do get in touch for Spring/Summer session dates. I’d love to hear from you.
