Helen is my oldest friend - we met when we were four and Helen started school nine days after me. I was delighted to hear she would be back staying at her parents for Christmas and bringing her new baby Charlie and her boyfriend Gareth with her, of course I had to take some pictures. Charlie is fantastic, I am really looking forward to watching him grow up and to getting out these pictures when he brings his first girlfriend home. It was also lovely to have Helen's parents there for the morning and to see how thrilled they are with their first grandson. I am always particularly happy to have grandparents around during my shoots and I am sure that Charlie will really treasure these pictures when he is older.
So here are a few of my favorites, I can't wait to see everyone again when they are next in the country in June and I am sure there will be more pictures posted then.
