I had a lovely email from an old client and friend yesterday; Nathalie.  I photographed Nathalie twice at the end of 2010.  Once when she was 4 months pregnant and then again when her gorgeously little boy Oscar was born and he was only 2 weeks old.  Nathalie's email reminded me that Oscar was already one now and ready for his next portrait shoot which I am so delighted to be doing.  It's a lovely aspect of my job that I get to meet and know families - and watch them grow.  Similarly I am fortunate to be shooting the weddings of two sisters of two different brides whose weddings I have photographed over the last couple of years.  It's always wonderful to follow and be part of the lives of my brides as their own families grow. A couple of pictures of Nathalie pregnant followed by Oscar aged 2 weeks... I'll have the updated versions by the end of March after our next session....

Family or baby portrait sessions are from £250 and include a couple of hours shooting time at c. 30 images on a disc for you to keep and print from.

Faye + Hugo's London Wedding

This summer my friend and fellow photographer Lorna ended up with a foot in plaster.  Not a good situation for a wedding photographer - you kind of need to be super mobile and for hours on end.  I was more than happy to step in and help her out at the intimate London wedding for Dutch couple Faye and Hugo. Having been living in London for a few years and big fans they wanted to mark their wedding in true London style which meant red double decker buses, union jack bow ties and Chelsea Town Hall.  Their bigger wedding happened later back in Holland later in the summer.

We caught up with them at Chelsea  Town Hall where the guests arrived on a London bus from The Hilton Hotel in Paddington.  The ceremony took place at the Chelsea Town Hall and the couple arrived together, Hugo walking Faye up the aisle in front of a small number of family and friends.

After champagne on the street the group headed back to Faye and Hugo's gorgeous flat in Notting Hill for cake and champagne.  Their friends had clubbed together to buy them a garden bench inscripted with their names and the date of the wedding.

A few hours later everyone regathered at the stunning private members club, Home House, for an evening meal and speeches.
