Newborn portraits | Rory

I had the pleasure of photographing Lynsey and Craig’s wedding last year – and was excited to meet their baby Rory for his newborn portraits, aged 12 days. Guarding the new arrival was Angel Cakes the German Shepherd.

And given that she pre-dated Rory as the first member of Lynsey and Craig’s family – her own portrait.

There were lots of signs of a baby:  cards, balloons, new toys … and a tired dad.

London professional portraits | Claudie Plen

I had the pleasure of photographing Claudie this morning for updated professional portraits.  We have known each other for many years and often shared pots of tea, so we chose somewhere that reflected this. Here are just a couple from her portrait session.

London family portraits | Islington

I photographed Jo and Manoj’s wedding about six years ago and since then, they’ve had two delightful daughters – Isabel and Ava. We recently did some family portraits of them in and near their London home in Islington.  They had a selection of reportage style photographs of them reading stories and playing games and and some more formal portraits of them in a nearby park.  Here are some of my favourites.

Wimbledon family portraits | Monica and family

Monica wanted some casual photos of her family taken in the park near their Wimbledon home to capture where her children spend so much of their life, as well as having a more formal portraits for a grandparent’s 80th birthday present.
We started with a family group.

Brighton engagement portraits | Craig & Liz

Yesterday’s engagement portraits with London couple Craig and Liz were in Brighton – one of their favourite places and somewhere they steal away when they can.  They wanted to show the fun in their relationship – hence meeting on Brighton Pier. Here is a preview of three – more to come next week when all the portraits have been edited.
