A day with baby James

Posted in Babies at 16:20 on 30/08/2007

As I often say one of the best things about this job is building relationships with my clients - seeing people year on year as their lives develop. The first time I photographed Sarah and Dan was for their engagement portrait, then we had the wedding which was a wondeful day with pictures taken on the steps of the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge (one of which you can see in the wedding section of the blog as the cover of the wedding section in Agenda Magazine) and then last week we caught up again to photograph their son James. We had a lovely time playing in the house and garden, here are a few of my favorite pictures. I personally love the tamborine shot, Sarah asked 'I wonder if you will get a picture of his scrunched up face as he chews things' - I think this was what she meant

Lara and her girls

I had a lovely time with Lara and her two beautiful daughters last week. We enjoyed the early morning light in the gardens behind the house and then came back inside for some more shots when the baby woke up. Here are a few of my favorites.

Sheila, Sam, Sebastian and Oliver

Posted in Maternity at 12:46 on 26/08/2007

I first met Sheila and Sam a while ago now for Shelia's maternity shoot. We spent a wonderful morning taking pictures. My nephew Myles was due at roughly the same time as Sheila and Sam's babies and so it was great to share the excitement.

I then had the pleasure of returning after the twins were born to take some family photographs. What a lovely pair they are, full of giggles and those massive smiles that are so fantastic on small babies, they light up the whole face. I have had such trouble choosing favorites but finally I have narrowed it down to a suitable selection for the blog. I hope you enjoy them

Christening at Caius

Posted in Parties and Occasions at 17:51 on 21/08/2007

On sunday I had the privilege of photographing Lyndal's son's christening at Gonville and Caius college in Cambridge. It was a wonderful setting for a lovely occasion. Unfortunately we didn't have the summer weather Lyndal had been hoping for but that didn't stop us as we took some portraits after the service in the chapel and around college. Here are some of my favorites from the day

80th Birthday shoot

Posted in Parties and Occasions at 19:31 on 15/08/2007

Last friday I had the pleasure of a photoshoot to honor Sarah's mother's eightieth birthday.

Sarah and her three sisters along with their husbands, partners and children all gathered at Sarah's flat before we travelled to the park. We found ourselves a nice patch of shade and after a few family photographs we spent a few hours chilling out while the family caught up and the kids enjoyed themselves playing with their parents, uncles, aunts and of course with their grandmother. As many of you know I feel very passionately that children should have pictures taken with their grandparents whenever possible so this shoot was a real treat for me.

Here are a few of my favorite moments from the day
