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's the second time I've photographed this family, once when their first daughter was born and again recently when daughter number two came along.
They live in a gorgeous house not far from me, and with both parents working in the design industry there were plenty of photogenic locations to use around their home.
As you can see, both girls are absolutely stunning and were so good in front of the camera that it really didn't feel like work at all.
I've been doing lots of business headshots lately, some for big corporate companies and other individual shoots like this one.
This is Nick Wallis, a journalist for ITV news and One Show reporter, who needed new photographs for his agent. We wanted to capture slightly edgy images of Nick so I suggested we head up to Alexandra Palace where there are lots of interesting nooks and crannies to use.
It was a very sunny but freezing cold morning and we were a bit worried that Nick may end up looking a bit like Rudolph, but we needn't have worried and the images turned out great in the end.
I must say, it really helps when your subject is used to being in front of a camera!
This is the second time I've flown to Jersey to photograph the gorgeous Joanne Reid Rodrigues and her beautiful clients who have all managed to lose weight on her inspirational programme Slimming Together.
Joanne's business is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and she wanted to mark the occasion by getting her girls (and boy) all dressed up courtesy of Coast and treating them to a fashion shoot to show off their new figures. And don't they look fabulous!
As readers to my blog will know I love to work with natural light, and thankfully we had some good weather that weekend, which meant I could take the girls into the street behind the department store where we were based to get some lovely images. I was also able to take some lovely shots just inside De Grouchy department store in front of the large glass doors.
Even though I've only worked with Joanne on two occasions, I feel like I've known her all my life. She's one of the warmest, most welcoming people I've ever met and along with her husband Zak, goes out of her way to make me feel at home and at ease. It's no wonder that her business is such a success and why her clients absolutely adore her.
Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and as you can see from these photographs, that energy shines through in her clients as well. Calling them clients actually doesn't seem quite right, Joanne considers them all her friends (and vice versa) and when that happens in business you know you're onto a good thing.
And here is the gorgeous Joanne herself, such an inspiration.
If there was a prize for the most loved up married couple, these two would win it hands down.
This is Joanne with her devoted husband Zak on the beautiful island of Jersey.
Joanne runs a successful business called Slimming Together helping women and men to lose weight and in turn feel amazing about themselves. A few weeks ago she flew me over to Jersey to photograph some of her incredible success stories. She also needed some updated headshots of herself, and whilst I was there we managed to get some beautiful images of her with Zak.
I will share some photos of her clients later, but for now I just wanted to post a few shots which I think sum up Joanne's energy, her love of life and her unbreakable bond with the lovely Zak.
