Looking back helps to see how far you’ve come and gather fuel for the year ahead. In collecting the material for these 2013 :: LOOKING BACK posts, I’ve been wonderfully surprised to see how much I’ve shot this year… for myself & for other people, in photographs and through films.

With an abundance of stories and images – I’ve split them up into manageable posts…

Part one begins with a selection of some of the amazing people and families I’ve captured… preserving this moment in their lives… It’s a real honour. Thank you.

Meeting and capturing new babies with their new parents can be one of my most favourite sessions…

These guys were wonderful especially lovely baby Kira, who was a delight all morning.

I wish them all a splendid first festive time together… I remember how special our first Christmas with Ky was.

We took plenty of photos for their Christmas cards… Here are a few of my favourite in-between moments…

I photographed this lovely couple on a summers evening just before their due date…. when they were so excited about the next chapter in their lives.

Now Sebastian has arrived… and what a beauty he is…

One of my favourite photo sessions are newborn ones… all that ‘newness’ in the air, tiny hands & feet, fresh baby skin and parents who are so in love, they can’t keep their eyes of their baba.

This time is so special and so fleeting, as babies change daily.

Parents are usually so sleep deprived, over-whelmed and excited… it’s wonderful to freeze this moment in time, so they can remember just how precious it was.

Thank you for letting me capture this special time…

It was Seren’s (or “Serry Berry”) birthday and her mum, Jasmine, wanted some photos to celebrate the occasion. We took a walk through their favourite park and created some photos to send to family overseas & give them memories to look back in years to come.

I love this couples’ tradition of taking family photos around the first birthday of each daughter… they love the story it has become and how it shines the light on this moment in their lives. Travelling and living all over the globe, these girls have some wonderful experiences to share, and my Sunday morning in their current home in London was the best fun… they performed, they played, they twirled and they filled me up with a whole lot of girly-ness.

Thank you for letting me be part of your tradition and tell the story of your wonderful girls.

Lovely Eddie is at that wonderful age of loads of smiles and fabulous noises…

These guys just love being a family… so much love and adoration.

New mama and her sleeping babe. Moments like this always make me smile.

Vanessa & Leon have a new baby girl… Meet Lyla…

During a newborn session it’s often the details and the in-between moments I love… and sometimes a story is best told in black & white.

Oh my gosh… I got to hang out with these lovelies yesterday… amongst the tiredness that a new baby brings, there was so much love and wonderment in this new family. Love these guys, (they were my first ever wedding!) I’m totally honoured to tell the stories of their lives.

Carly and Ben are totally in love with their new son Acer, and I spent a lovely morning hanging out with them and capturing this special time. I remember those days just like it was yesterday…

And then because I love to tell a story…
