I firmly believe that photography sessions should be fun.
When I look through my lens, I'm aiming to capture every giggle, tickle, laugh and cuddle.
Moments like these are precious and all too fleeting.
It's such a privilege to be able to work a little magic and freeze a perfect instant in time with my camera, because when our babies are grown, these are the memories we'll treasure...
I'm always honoured when someone trusts me to capture precious memories of their family, especially when it is a friend and fellow photographer. Evie Winter-Luscombe thanks for the best morning of you guys being amazing! I had so much fun with you and your gorgeous family.

An intimate ceremony on a boat on the Thames surrounded by their closest friends and family made this gorgeous wedding a day to remember.
And, of course, the London weather being as capricious as it always is, meant it tipped down with rain the entire time.
Absolutely nothing could have dampened the spirits of the guests, or indeed the overwhelming atmosphere of laughter, love and joy that surrounded this special day.
Dan and Amanda certainly knew how to make an entrance! They arrived (almost like royalty) on a boat, waving to their guests who were huddled under the strategically placed umbrellas outside a pub on the river in Richmond.
After everyone boarded the gorgeously decorated boat, the guests were treated to the loveliest of ceremonies as the boat sailed through Richmond up to Hampton Court Palace.
The torrential rain meant that we had to improvise a few quick portraits around the Saturday shoppers in Richmond itself (which was a lot of fun) as the wedding party splashed its way up to the couple’s favourite restaurant for a 10-course Italian feast before heading on to celebrate long into the night.
It truly was an honour to capture such special memories for the gorgeous Amanda and Dan, you can see a few of their highlights in the slideshow above.
I just knew there was magic in this gorgeous autumn light!Read More

For me summer has become almost synonymous with flowering lavender which can be found in abundance at the Mayfield Lavender Farm in Banstead.
I first visited this gorgeous location three years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. We've been ever summer since and I can almost chart my children's growth among these beautiful blooms.
Gorgeous photography location
Because it has such a special significance to me, it has become one of my favourite places to photograph my families.
I spent most of last weekend there with some absolutely lovely families, you can see some of them featured in the video above.
Magical family photographs
The lavender certainly does provide a gorgeous backdrop for photographs, but what makes these special is the love and connection, the unique bonds and relationships that all these lovely people have with one another.
Would you like some magical family photos? I'm taking bookings for summer sunset sessions throughout August and am opening bookings for my Autumn sessions in October and November. Contact me now to snap up yours today.
This sweet baby girl turned one over the weekend and she celebrated with all her family and friends.
She handled the whole party in style, insisting on drinking from a champagne glass, making sure she tried on everyone's hats and smiling and laughing with anyone who picked her up for a cuddle.
She wasn't too sure how to blow out her birthday candles, but she knew exactly who that cake was for... her dad. She decided he needed feeding and she made sure to dig out the very best bits of her beautifully baked, homemade cake for him!
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Ava about a month before her birthday, in Greenwich, where I photographed her gorgeous family.
She smiled and laughed the whole way through our session (despite not having had a nap that day) and was just as happy and playful on her big birthday. Ava is just pure joy, I wish her and her lovely family all the very best - she has an exciting second year ahead of her!
London is a vibrant, living map of the memories that tell the story of my adult life. As a photographer, I get freeze pieces of those places in time, so I don’t forget parts of my journey. I’d love to do the same for you and your familyRead More

Dads - after countless shoots, I know that for most of you a family photoshoot is not top of your list of things to do, but I just want you to stop for a minute and think about what your children are going to remember about you and their childhood in years to come.
Will they remember the tickle fights, being thrown in the air, the hugs and cuddles over scraped knees, stories at bedtime or the silly impromptu games you always play?
Will they remember the love in your eyes, the feel of your strong arms around them or the feeling that they are flying, perched high up on your shoulders?
Photography is an investment
Memories matter and I firmly believe that family photography is an investment in your future, a tangible record of who you are and where you are, right now.
And dads when you book a photoshoot with me, you don't even have to look at the camera if you don't want to. I just need you to play with your kids, the same way you do every single day - and occasionally wrap your arms around your partner (that awesome person you fell in love with, all those years ago).
To celebrate all those great dads out there in the run up to Father's Day, I am offering a free framed 12"x8" fine art print for anyone booking a family photography session for any time this year, with me, before June 17.
I still have a few sunset sessions available this month and am taking bookings for July right through the summer.
Memories of who you are, where you have been, who you have loved and who you matter the most to, these are treasures which have a value that is immeasurable and that is why family photography is so important to meRead More
If you book me you can rest assured that I aim to do for your family the same thing I do for mine, every single time I pick up my camera: capture special memories of you and your family, just as you are, right now.Read More
