The Christmas rush is over, everything has been delivered to happy clients and we are excited at the thought of lots of beautiful albums and prints being opened on Christmas day.
Kate and I are now going to relax with a minced pie (or seven) and a glass of wine, and enjoy the festive season.
We reopen for business on Monday 9th January 2012.
In the meantime, we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful and happy New Year.
Let me leave you with my Christmas card shot for this year - a picture from my trip to the Arctic in June, I hope you enjoy it
See you in the New Year!
I travel all over London to take children's, baby and family portrait photographs and so I was thrilled to go to Wimbledon to meet Rosemary and her family. Regular readers of the blog will know how much I love wooded areas for family photographs, and so Wimbledon Common is one of my favorite locations for portrait photography sessions.
It was a very cold morning when I arrived at Rosemary's beautiful Wimbledon home, so we started the morning playing indoors before heading out to the common. There was still frost on the ground so Wimbledon Common looked like a winter wonderland - a truly beautiful setting for our family photographs.
The twins were fantastic fun to photograph, braving the cold and taking early tentative steps - they had only been walking a couple of weeks. I am thrilled with the pictures and I hope you enjoy these few from our children and family portrait photography session in Wimbledon, London SW19 and SW20.
As a London-based children's and family portrait photographer, the run up to Christmas is one of the busiest times of year for me but it is also one of my absolute favorites. I love seeing my regular clients again, and it is always a pleasure to catch-up and see how the children are growing.
I've photographed Olga and her family since the twins were eight-months old, and so I look forward to their shoot all year. As always I visited their home in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London before we headed out to take some photographs. Last year, we went along the South Bank (as featured in my blog last year), and this year we went to Battersea Park which is one of my favorite places for relaxed and fun family portraits in the whole of London as there is so much to do there.
I hope you enjoy this set of pictures from our children's photos shoot in Battersea Park in South West London, SW10 and SW3
Holland Park is one of my favorite places to take children's and family portraits in the whole of London - it is such a beautiful area, and I do like the different coffee options near the tube.
I was thrilled to be asked to visit one of my favorite clients for something a bit different recently (and you can tell we have been busy as the blog is a little behind) - I visited for Bonfire Night to take some portraits of the children as they enjoyed an evening of fireworks in the garden and sparklers, a personal favorite of mine.
I have to say though, that a small child wielding two sparklers like light sabers has to be one of the most terrifying things to photograph. I couldn't work out if my hat or my hair was more likely to catch fire first - luckily neither, but it felt a close run thing at times!
I love the results - capturing those moments of glee. I do hope you will enjoy this selection of children and family photographs from Holland Park in London, W11 with the addition of firework fun!
I had such a wonderful morning taking beautiful fine art baby photographs for Fawzia and Simon. I was thrilled to be invited to their lovely home near Cambridge to spend a morning taking pictures and drinking very good coffee.
We played indoors with baby Amara, making use of the amazing mirror that Fawzia has hung in her hallway. We then took some beautiful shots with Amara on the bed, always a great place to photograph babies as they feel happy and safe, and can roll around and topple over without hurting themselves.
We finished the day's portrait session with a few shots in the garden that I absolutely love, and I hope you enjoy them too.
