Katrina’s senior portraits

Katrina came to the studio this afternoon for her senior portraits to go in her Vermont high school year book. We took some photographs in the studio and also went outside for some environmental portraits. She’s such easy company to have around and looks just fabulous.

Jennifer’s maternity album

Jennifer booked in for a maternity portrait session last week – and decided that she would like a Queensberry digital (coffee table) style album. We took quite a number of images in the studio and also went on location in Narrow Street, near where she lives in east London. I pre-designed her album and today we made a few changes so it’s just about finished. Below is one of my favourite images of her and her bump.

London engagement portraits | Kate and James

Spring FINALLY appears to be here and I could work with the door open for most of today. It was also a chance to get together with Kate and James, who are marrying in August, for their engagement portrait session. We were able to capture some fun photographs of them and find out their favourites, so time we spend together on their wedding day is fine tuned. During our session, we walked around Greenwich market, which is usually crowded at weekends, visiting the old fashioned sweet shop (which Kate & James revisited later!) and using one of my favourite cake shops as a backdrop. The church you can see at the end of the lane in several of the portraits is St Alfege Church, designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor.



London family portraits – Mimi and family





Ros, David, Mimi and Dora came into the studio today for their first sitting as a family of four. Dora is four months old and just adorable – she smiles if you get up very close to her face or in a mirror. Mimi is a bundle of fun too – with great dress sense. We started with Ros playing ‘flying baby’, Mimi being tipped upside by her dad, stopped for a break while Dora had an early lunch then Mimi did some drawing. She was wearing brand new pink shoes – the only colour she would even contemplate when in the shoe shop yesterday!

Snow!

It’s weird that a few days I thought spring was on its way (the daffodils are in full flower) and this morning when I woke up, everything I could see out the window was covered in thick snow. I took some photographs, then dressed and went to Greenwich, which was even more stunning.
Sir Walter Raleigh seemed distinctly unimpressed.

This local lovely couple was taking the opportunity to photograph themselves.

Water features were frozen.

Plants had a shock.

Snowballs were thrown.

The view was silent.

But you could hear a flautist at Trinity College of Music practising Peter and the Wolf.
