This morning’s wedding at Chelsea Register Office was with Vikki, Toby and two witnesses before a portrait walkabout and going onto The Wolseley, where they were having an early lunch. Toby and Vikki’s mothers are in Spain and Cyprus and have been told a wedding day photograph is going online for them to see – so here it is.  More will be going up in about a week, so check back to see more when they have been edited.

Chelsea baby portraits | Thea

Almost five years ago exactly, I was photographing Patrick on his first birthday. Now he’s running around with a Nintendo game … and it was his sister Thea’s turn this week on HER first birthday in Chelsea. What’s amazing is how similar they look at the same age. Here are a few from their session which are going into a feature album with one selected as a large wall portrait.
