Baby portraits in London

There’s nothing that makes me happier than when I get to photograph a family over time. Heli and Julian got married last year in London’s Battersea Park (I seem to have not blogged it yet! Coming soon…) and have since had this gorgeous little boy. So I went to their home and nearby Vauxhall Park to meet him and to capture some portraits of him and his mummy and daddy while he was still little. He’s about four months old so there are lots of smiles and cuteness overload. He’s not a newborn and he’s not sitting up yet, he needs feeding and naps and while he is in fact one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever photographed, he’s not always totally co-operative – nobody is when they’re this tiny! Basically there is no ideal time for a family shoot with your baby because they’re human and messy and so going with the flow and making the most of the chaos is what it’s all about. Here’s a little dose of adorable… x

    Family of four portraits in the New Forest

    I’ve found my new favourite location for a family portraits session in the forest. On the edge of Brockenhurst there’s an area with a huge open heathland space with ponies roaming freely and an hour long – wandering slowly – walk that takes you through wooded areas with streams and bridges and fallen logs to climb on and explore and back to where the ponies are. It’s perfect for a family photo shoot with lots of variety and adventurous fun to be had. And this lovely family of mum and dad and two lively girls enjoyed the start of their Hampshire countryside day out

      New Forest family portraits featuring Fred the dog

      So here I am, back where I started shooting family portraits while at the same time here I am somewhere completely new. The New Forest couldn’t be a more perfect environment for family shoots with so much to explore from the open heathland to the woodlands and the beautiful coast. This super family trusted me to go for a walk in the forest near Brockenhurst to capture their two very tall (basketball playing) teenagers and their dog Fred. They were all very tolerant of me asking them to sit on fallen trees, jump over rivers and get among the equally tolerant ponies (Fred on a lead of course). It was a new place for them to visit too and I think they’ll be back!

        Hampshire naming ceremony

        Family events like christenings and naming ceremonies are, for me, like mini weddings. All the elements I love about bring generations together and celebrating the important moments in life are there and I can capture a mix of informal portraits, candid moments and even some fun group shots if they’re wanted. This little boy had his naming ceremony at his grandparents’ family home near Winchester on his first birthday. They incorporated a lovely sand-in-a-bottle feature into the ceremony and the boy of the day really enjoyed all the love and attention lavished on him.

          Poppy and Vinny – wedding at Villa Rouge, Corbières, France

          I miss skies like this. Deep blue, so deep you know it can only mean heat and southern French light. Summer weddings in France have a magical quality and this one at Villa Rouge in the pretty Languedoc village of Villerouge La Cremade was at the height of the sultry days, infused with happiness and warmth. Topped off with an outdoor meal as the sun lost some of its intensity, and with a pool to cool guests’ feet in the meantime, it was the epitome of relaxed celebration. Poppy and Vinny thought they’d be self-conscious but they were an absolute joy, just letting all their fears about their photographs go and having the best day ever with each other and with their friends and family. Hot love x
