This week has been a great time for location shoots. I did a maternity shoot with Nouf on Wednesday at her art deco styled home, which was great fun. She’d seen the shots of Tia with a pink translucent scarf and liked that style, so chose a number of floaty dresses and scarves for her shoot. Two oriental screens made amazing backdrops and the art deco mirrors were just stunning. We also had oodles of natural light and Nouf looked great.

Yesterday, I photographed Polly and Humphrey Wood and daughter Kate Reardon with Polly’s two dogs – it was most definitely a family photograph of five! We took some family shots inside, some outside in the garden (dodging the builders) and then went for a walk in nearby Parsons Green. Kate was celebrating the success of her website Top Tips for Girls which has been live for about a week. The site’s members answer such questions as “How to be happy” and “How to remove chewing gum from hair” – and can rate contributions from others.
