Hello and welcome! I am a baby, child and family photographer based in Muswell Hill, North London. I absolutely love what I do which I hope shows in the photographs that I've taken. I shoot only with natural light (no imposing studio lighting here) at your home or on location which give my images a very personal and natural style. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and looking at my photos, if you would like to make a booking please call me on 07527 711 967 or drop me a line at [email protected]
It has been a long time since I put anything up on my blog, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been crazy busy around here.
I have made a promise to myself to get better at this blogging lark, starting with this gorgeous family I photographed over the summer. The little baby girl was simply adorable and her big sister was one of the happiest children I have ever photographed.
Again, I was blessed with a beautiful house to photograph in and who can forget that long hot summer we had? This meant that I had lovely light bouncing around the already light and bright home. Perfect for photography.
The shot of the two sisters together was something of a surprise capture. It was a race against time as Baby A was ready for a nap and was getting a little bit fidgety, but we managed to get a very calm and serene image in the end and I love it!
May absolutely favourite photo from the session is this first shot where little baby A stared directly into the lens, and just look at those eyes!
This photo of her big sister makes me smile so much! She was cracking up practically the whole time, a complete dream to photograph!
For the last four years I've had the absolute pleasure of working with two schools in North London photographing all of the children, in different ways each time, for an end of year exhibition.
2017's theme was all about feeling the vibe so we decided to pose the kids with headphones and had music blaring out during the shoot. As you can imagine, the kids loved it.
This is the fourth year of working with the schools so the children are getting very used to seeing me around and posing in front of my camera. In fact, many of them don't need any encouragement whatsoever, as soon as they come up to the backdrop they adopt the most incredible poses which makes me a very happy photographer indeed. Not to mention that these children are among the coolest kids around - and incredibly polite to go with it.
I absolutely love working with them alongside the uber friendly and enthusiastic staff members. It's easy to see why both schools have outstanding ofsted reports.
The thing I love most about this project is the way it gives the children such a boost to their self esteem. Not only by having fun in front of the camera and making them feel special, but by seeing their image displayed at the end of year exhibition and showing them to their parents and carers. It's a very proud moment for them.
A special shout out goes to headteacher Mr Flathers for his commitment to giving the children such varied creative experiences and the brainchild behind the whole project, to Stephanie Moritz who contacted me in the first place all those years ago, and to Michelle McDonald and Deputy Head Vicky Dawes for somehow managing to get 1400 primary school kids to turn up to their photography session on time. Walkie Talkies are the best.
Here's a snap shot of what we managed to achieve last summer and here's to the next project in a few months time.
Other projects with this school can be found here.
So many sessions to catch up with here, starting with this beautiful little boy who I photographed a few months back now in Crouch End.
He was such an angel throughout the session, and has the most engaging eyes and expressions. I absolutely loved photographing him.
He's at that ideal age to photograph when they are easily entertained, can sit up on their own but crucially can't crawl off anywhere :] The perfect combination.
