Naomi – 4 weeks old

I was honoured to be asked to photograph beautiful baby Naomi and her parents as they settled into life as a family of three. At 4 weeks old, Naomi was alert, showing off her incredible blue eyes and gazing up at her mum and dad. It was so special to spend time with this new little family in their home where they were relaxed and comfortable and to see the bond between them. After I sent over their gallery I received this lovely message from mum Kathryn: “Thank you for seeing her as we do, and for capturing so many sides of her beautiful innocence and playfulness. We can’t ever thank you enough xxx”. Photos taken in the first few weeks of a baby’s life are so special and I love to think that these images will be treasured forever.

Poppy: a cat portrait session

Poppy is a rather beautiful black and white cat who found her forever home with Catherine. She was a scared little kitten when Catherine first met her, but with kindness and time she’s settled in and relaxed in her new home. Now she loves watching birds through the window, curling up on the radiator and admiring the view from her perch on top of the door. I spent a sunny afternoon getting to know Poppy in her favourite spots at home, capturing images that show her clever and mischievous character.

You can see more of my wildlife and animal photography on my website. I love animals but don’t have space for one at home at the moment, so I’m always happy to make friends with other people’s pets – if you’d like to book a pet portrait session please do be in touch!

Rebecca & Patrick’s Blackheath Wedding Reception

I don’t normally photograph only the evening reception of a wedding – but when my friends Rebecca & Patrick’s photographer finished before the cutting of the cake or the first dance I was glad I had my camera with me at the Hare & Billet pub in Blackheath. Rather than giving a number of hours that I work, when I photograph a wedding I simply say that I’ll be there from bridal preparations through to the first dance – so there’s no stress if things run late. Sometimes the first dance gives some of the most romantic images of the day – and with such an incredible backless wedding dress I’m so glad I was able to capture them for my friends. Congratulations Rebecca & Patrick!
