This little angel was so much fun, Upon arriving Mum Helen let me know that they had not had the most restful night, little Eleanor had been awake most of the night, not crying or unwell but smiling and singing to herself. I am not sure Mum and Dad were as amused!
Despite this set back Eleanor was great, she is already such a bright baby and so aware. lovely images from a lovely family. Watch a slide show of the whole shoot, and check out my favorites below.
This shoot took place in Weybridge Surrey, With Mum Amanda and Dad Matt and the very willing baby Alethea, this little girl as you can see below was brilliant, at a mere five months she is like a little Kate Moss in the making. Every shot she came up with a new expression, different but just as cute as the last. It was a struggle to edit them down. Just beautiful.
This was a great shoot with Mum Sue and Dad Alex in Ashstead Surrey, after spending some time at home with the cheeky roary and adorable Hannah, we went to Alex’s old school grounds, the reason I enjoyed this shoot so much is that it took no direction, I was just a an observer watching Sue and Alex have fun and play with their children…priceless.
Andrea contacted me as a conveniently located Surrey Photographer with a brief of family shots that showed the English countryside, she is the assistant head of lower school at TASIS and has been here for 6 years, and is now going back home to America. So with her husband Greg and the completely adorable baby Lucas, she wanted something to remember her time in England that she has enjoyed so much. After shooting in the grounds of the school we set off to Windsor to get shots with the castle in the background, here are the results I really like them. Andrea and Greg are a great couple and I wish them good luck with their move home.
For this photography shoot we had three generations of the same family and as most of them are gardeners it’s no surprise that we went savill Garden in Windsor great park, a really great and loving family which I think really shows through in the images. This shoot was a birthday present from Suzanne and her sister to their Mum who was thrilled, they all enjoyed the shoot and have chosen some really great images to hang in their homes that we now be treasured for years to come.
Here are a few of my favorites
Three children in this shoot, and all under 5!! They are cousins Georgia, Lucia and Olivia. We had fun watching them play, and keeping up with them was definitely a task, they are all so sweet together, and I am sure they will all treasure this collection of photos when they are all grown up.Priceless.
My little subject for this shoot lives literally a stones throw away. Isabella’s parents are both teachers at the American school situated in my village, and apart from the odd student wandering through the village, you wouldn’t know that there are 600 students attending this school. It was niceÂ to meet someone from behind the scenes and find a out little more about the school.
At just six weeks old she is, as you will see a real cutie and even gave a smile, I am relieved to say I caught it, as quite often babies will wait until your camera is zipped up in your bag before they give you a grin! It was a lovely sunny morning and we also got a few shots outside, with the proud Mum and Dad and the very beautiful Isabella.
The thing I find most enjoyable abut this job, is when IÂ come back to photograph a baby or child. Of course we are all aware that children are constantly growing and changing, and parents are always shocked by how fast it seems to be happening, but it is a real pleasureÂ when like this shoot with Scarlett, I have returned to photograph her, and she is now sitting all by her self, and in that wonderful stage between baby and toddler. It is nothing less than remarkable the changes that happen in a baby’s first year.
She has changed so much since her newborn shoot and as you will see is adorable and so much fun.
This shoot in Esher Surrey had a few surprises, Janet and Ray have rescued a variety of owls! I apologise that I can’t remember the breeds, but I do know the white one is twinkle. It was a real treat to see these beautiful creatures up close, and although I had come to photograph the children, I could not resist taking a few shots of the owls.
This is not to say that children were not the main attraction, baby Chole and her adorable brother Scott were both angels, and Scott is just so proud of his new baby sister, that if he is not kissing her, he is showing how well he can hold her.
Sunday, what a beautiful day. I am glad I got the chance to wander around the stunning Windsor Park and Virginia Water lake, before the rain came this week.
Lulu and Georgia were my little subjects on this shoot, they are cousins and this shoot is part one, as their youngest cousin Olivia was unable to make it Sunday. So I will be back with them hopefully in the next few weeks. As you will probably have noticed from the website, I am a big fan of black and white photography, but I am not a complete purist and if you are surrounded with autumn colours that we have at moment then it has to be colour all the way, this is my pick from the day, and I don’t know why but the shots on the bridge remind me of the illustrations from the winnie the pooh books.
