SAYING GOODBYE TO HUDDLESTONE ROAD

with one comment

Oh my goodness! I totally fell in love with this family…

This family session was originally organised as part of a birthday gift, but while spending time with them and learning that they would be moving house the following month…. the photo session turned from just family photos, into capturing memories and the things they love about their long-time home on Huddleston Road.

So, alongside the images captured, I created a film – gathering what can’t be captured in photos, including some little things like… The children’s voices – at that age when everything they say is so sweet… sharing their memories of their home… and the way they giggle and snuggle each other.

and the doorstep – the threshold to any home.

Also, how they run down the pathway – the pathway that’s seen so many footsteps of friends and family come and go. The pathway that they won’t travel up and down on a daily basis anymore, as they’ve said goodbye to this home.

This is a gift they’ll have forever…. {much like the Time Capsule I made before we moved house.}

I love these moments… when pieced together, they create the bigger picture… a portrait of their home and family life.

Thanks for letting me capture this time in your lives, I wish you all the best in your new home. When can I come and capture your new family life?…

I love family sessions… contact me for details of how I would tell stories of your family life.

CHILDREN & FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSIONS

with one comment

Over the summer I photographed some fabulous families… some really precious moments were captured and these families will have some sweet memories to look back on… I’ll be sharing some of these sessions soon.

Have you been meaning to have some family photos taken?, but just keep putting it off…

How about we make it happen?

I can come and hang out at your home or favourite place…

See the kid’s rooms,

play in your messy kitchen or your heart of the home

and discover what you all love to do there…

We could have breakfast together,

or bake a cake,

or jump in puddles,

or sit on the doorstep,

or take me on a bike ride…

We could play in the Autumn leaves,

make paper aeroplanes,

dance in the hallway,

or roll around on the sofa,

eat snacks & have chats,

or read books,

or visit your favourite playground.

We can DO what you LOVE to DO… and we’ll have fun together whatever we do and I’ll shoot some pretty photos to print & share. Forever.

Let’s tell your story of your now… for you to treasure forever. Hey, these photos could make wonderful Christmas gifts or even christmas cards… how happy would the grandparents be, to have a new photo to put on the mantel piece.

I’ve even got some special Autumn offers on selected weekends in October & November as an added incentive to make this happen. Contact me and let’s have some fun.

I’d love to meet your family…

 

FAMILY PORTRAIT SHOOT

without comments

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.

THE FREER/GEERING FAMILY – A TIME CAPSULE FILM

with 2 comments

So when a photographer from the other side of the world contacts you about photographing their family – your tummy flips a little…

then you find out they’ve won Family Photographer of the Year in Australia – GULP!

Then you hear all about the amazing 6 week trip to Europe they have planned, (just as we’d returned from our big adventure, so I totally got the excitement)…. and knew first hand how precious the experience is and that moments like this should be captured and treasured.

We talked beforehand about how Robyn would love a film, that tells the story of who their family is ‘right in this moment’, just as their trip was starting… her children are growing up & blossoming and life changes so quickly. Robyn writes beautifully about the other reasons for their trip and the photo session here… and I love this quote -

“In twenty years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.” Mary Schmich

Our lovely afternoon was probably one of the crazy days I’ve ever spent shooting, as the Southbank in London was packed with people in the sweltering heat and there was so much for the children to do… it was a feast on the senses!

I could have chatted to Robyn for hours, but knowing how much this family time meant for her, I gathered as many moments for them as I could – the silly bits, the little details of her children and the sentimental moments… and plenty of smiles and happiness… and created a Time Capsule Film that I hope they will treasure forever.

Thanks for letting me tell your story Robyn… you are as fabulous now as you will be in 20 years… big love to you all.

 

NEWBORN PORTRAIT SESSION AND FILM

without comments

I love this family SO much. Shelley and I have known each other for years… one of those friends where a five minute chat always turns into an hour long gossip. Our children go to the same school and love hanging out with each other and I can’t tell you how many times she’s helped me out, all with a huge smile on her face.

I was so excited to meet their new little girl for some yummy snuggles… and give them a gift of some photos of this special time, as their family of 4 become 5.

 

MATERNITY SHOOT ON HAMPSTEAD HEATH

without comments

I fell a little bit in love with these two… so happy & care free, just about to embark on the exciting adventure of parent hood. Even Kirstin’s hay fever didn’t dampen their spirits on this beautiful evening last month…

Huge congratulations to them as their baby boy was born last week.

FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION IN LONDON

with one comment

This adorable family were visiting London, all the way from Singapore. Sulyana & Suhaimi were so excited about bringing their new son, Mikail, they wanted some photos to remember this first time altogether, in a city they love.

We weren’t blessed with the best summer day, but this didn’t stop the smiling, hugs and kisses for each other.

Hurry back to London… so we can all hang out again.

Are you visiting London over the summer? Would you like some photos of your visit together? Contact me… I’d love to show you around my city.

 

 

ON MY PARENTS’ ISLAND – NARAYAN

without comments

This is Narayan, he’s our wonderful nephew who lives in Bali. He’s such a vibrant spirit… a truly funny boy, full of laughs and fun.

First, he showed me his amazing leaps onto the bed – I was impressed with the flying in mid air! Then a calmness set in, lying on his parent’s room overlooking rice paddies, turns out to be a beautiful place to daydream…

I love that I’ve had the chance to take this project out of the UK (I have a couple more still to share from recent travels)…

Wanna be part of my Island project? Drop me an email… let’s make it happen.

 

 

 

A FAMILY SESSION – LONDON

with 3 comments

Oh my, this family are fabulous! I had the best time capturing this morning with them, at their house in London.

So full of happiness and laughter… plus bags of energy… they made the photo session so fun.

This is the message Marika sent after seeing her photos – “You are utterly brilliant. It was a joy having you here and I cannot wait to have you back! Thank you so so much for everything!”

I can’t wait to hang out with you all again… can we do it soon?

For more information about having your own family session… please contact me. I’d love to capture your smiley faces…

BEACH SUNSET – FAMILY SHOOT

with one comment

I was so excited to photograph this wonderful family again, last time my camera saw them Satya was just 3 days old… The next chapter in their story, finds them living in Bali.

We all went away to the beach, and I was able to do a sunset family shoot!. We hung out on the shoreline as the sun disappeared… if only I could photograph moments like this all the time!
