Helen Bartlett / Family Portraiture

I have known Murray for as long as I can remember. He has been my brother William’s best friend since secondary school and so has become a family friend too. We all go to the pub together on Christmas eve, our parents are friends, all the good things. So it was a great pleasure to spend the morning with Murray today and to meet his wife Marianne and their new baby nico. Murray and his family are over in the UK for Christmas and it was the perfect time for a photo session – particularly as we had the proud grandparents around too.

nico was a joy to photograph, a really smiley little boy which was incredibly impressive considering jet-lag. I have so many pictures that I love but I promised I would get a few online today and these are my absolute favorites.

This will be my last pre-Christmas blog post as tomorrow it is Christmas shopping time, think of me on Oxford street at quarter to four running around like a mad thing.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Enjoy the pictures
