children’s photography in Saffron Walden


Long term readers of my blog may remember Edward and Violet. Although I first photographed Edward back in 2005 before the blog started they made their first appearance here in 2007 not long after the blog started.

I have said it before and I am sure I will say it again but truly the best bit of my job is seeing the same families again and again, having friends rather than clients who I look forward to seeing on a regular basis. It is lovely to look forward to my shoots knowing I am going to have a fabulous time and being keen to see how the children have grown and what they are into this year. It really is the very best.

So, with great pleasure I went back to see Edward and Violet and spend a morning photographing them playing at home and in the wonderful field of corn that grows behind the house. I can’t wait until next year…

Just to give new readers some context – here is Edward back in 2005 looking very serious while sitting on the living room floor.

then with Violet just a few days old at this point

and now full of beans and ready to take over the world
