Children’s Photographer Barnes and Richmond: Spring Family Shoot

I spent a gorgeous sunny day on Barnes Common with a lovely family recently. The common was perfect for family photographs as there were beautiful wild backdrops, with so much variety of scenery and gorgeous light. I have often photographed children in Richmond and surrounding areas, but I had not yet done a shoot on the Common. I will definitely be coming back here with other families. I look forward to blogging a wider selection of the rest of the photographs from this photo shoot, but here is just one for now:

Award winning portrait photographer

I entered a national portrait photography competition a few months ago and am delighted to announce that I won first prize.

I think like all skills photography requires constant practice, and I have thousands of images of my family and friends as well as all my client work. When I read about the Portrait of the Year competition run by Photoanswers I looked through my archives for something that might match their brief of an image that stands out from the crowd. (To be honest, the one I picked is my favourite photo of my daughter – it makes me smile every time I look at it.)

These were taken during an afternoon spent playing with a joke pair of water-squirting glasses that came free with a Simpsons comic:

and here is the winning photo:

So a big thank you to Digital Photo and Practical Photography magazines for choosing my photograph, and thank you to my family for putting up with constant photos!

Maida Vale baby photographer : Isabella

I  was lucky enough to photograph Mattio when he was just a newborn and I was delighted to be asked to photograph his new baby sister Isabella and her parents in their beautiful home in Maida Vale.

I have so many gorgeous photographs of this family that I have had a difficult job choosing which to show. This photo of baby Isabella in her daddy’s arms is one of my favorites – she has such a soulful look, and her eyes are incredible:

It was great to be able to incorporate Abby’s beautiful room into the backdrop of these photos:

It’s one of the parts of this job that I most enjoy capturing the quiet moments when parents sit and look at their new baby. Working on location means that everyone is truly relaxed in their own environment – you can just feel the peaceful mood in this photo:
