A rainy Sunday in West London and a home full of love and delight at a very special new arrival...
What a delight to photograph Charlie and his mummy and daddy! We had a wonderful time trying out different outfits and backgrounds and there were lots of amazing cuddles and kisses for this precious little boy who was 10 days young on our session <3
Ashley has written a beautiful blog piece on her experience of being an expat pregnant in London and it's super informative!! I had the complete pleasure of working with Ashley and Jeff for Flytographer creating fun 'bump' pictures in Notting Hill before Xmas and then when Margot arrived in January + at 11 days young we captured gorgeous new born pictures......
" have someone else find you a photographer. // Being in a new city means limited resources — and since none of our friends here had hired a maternity photographer before, I wasn’t sure who to ask. I started to poke around online a few times, but I was always overwhelmed… when your only requirement is “NOT CHEESY,” Google doesn’t really deliver the goods.
After one too many websites full of photos of hand-hearts on bumps in cornfields (you know the ones), I realized that DUH, I didn’t need to find other personal recommendations — Flytographer already has access to some of the best photographers in London. We booked a 30 minute shoot, and as soon as we met Jackie, it was like hanging out with an old friend. Best of all, she didn’t ask Jeff to kiss my bare belly ONCE.
Obviously, it was a no-brainer to ask her to take our newborn photos, too."
FITIQUE sports boutique opens in Alresford
I've had the absolute pleasure to work with the ladies at Fitique capturing the store as it opens.
It's such an inspiring and gorgeous space, I instantly feel 'healthy' every time I'm there, whether visiting or taking pictures :-)
There's a huge array of fantastic running and yoga clothes AND very cool branded 'Fitique' water bottles, towels, and cowshed hampers (sigh - divine) You can use the treadmill for a gate test to assess how you run and which shoe is better for you (HIGHLY recommend this as a now sort of runner, but once full on runner - Vicky was amazingly helpful to me and because of her product knowledge and understanding of the structural elements which make you pronate or not, I trust her + I always go to her when I need new running shoes) Not fluff and hype, complete truth :-)
Very Best of Luck for the future ladies, it's such a super exciting time xx
This small body of work is just blowing my mind right now. I recently captured these at the wonderful 'The Lavender Hill Company' a fabulous florist in Farnham.
We wanted to create images to depict floral trends for this Autumn/Winter and Sue and Rachel came up with the most wonderful colour choices for me to photograph. Once I had captured the still life image for each of the three colour ways we then deconstructed the flowers and petals and foliage to create equally enchanting images. These are the results! x
