I want to send the biggest congratulations and I am so glad we got a chance to do your London Maternity Photography session and you received the images in time before your wonderful bundle of joy enter the world xxx

London Maternity Photography Shoot at Battersea Park with Sarah

It was such a pleasure to photograph Sarah for her London Maternity Photography session on a beautiful sunny day in Battersea Park South West London. With the River Thames running past the park with views of Chelsea Bridge to the East and Albert Bridge to the West, it is such a picturesque place to have a Photo Shoot. 

Sarah got in contact with me when she was 38 weeks, so it was literally a couple of weeks before her baby girl was due. We decided to meet by the Peace Pagoda next to the River, on a gorgeous summer day in May, where we could get stunning shots of Chelsea Embankment and the Bridges as backdrops. Also, the Peace Pagoda is such an iconic place in Battersea Park alongside the Zoo and bandstand that we had to get images with Sarah there.

The morning was gorgeous; the sun was shining with a cool breeze and it was just a perfect peaceful day for a London Maternity Photography session. We started out taking portraits next to the River changing the view from Chelsea Bridge, Albert Bridge and Chelsea Embankment. We then move a small garden with the Peace Pagoda in the background, before then moving to the Peace Pagoda itself.

We chatted quite a lot through the session, finding out that she had two other girls, move from USA 8 years ago with her husband and, also was in the middle of moving house!

We moved the session towards the centre of Battersea Park taking in the long grass and some of the other beauties in the park including Russell Page Garden.

After a quick outfit change we went to the famous Bandstand for a few iconic images and then finally ending the session next to the Fountains (which decided to stop when we wanted them in the background)

It was such a pleasurable photoshoot and look forward to doing more of these sessions in the future.

Below is some of my favourite images from Sarah’s London Maternity Photography session.

London Fine Art Lifestyle Maternity Photography – Cody’s Bump to Baby shoot @ 14 weeks

Cody’s Bump to Baby – 14 weeks; The first shoot of the series.

It is such a pleasure to be able to offer Fine Art Maternity Photography and capture such a precious time in a woman’s life

I was very excited when I was approach by Cody to shoot her at different stages of her maternity. We scheduled the first of our Bump to Baby photo shoots together when Cody was 14 weeks. We felt this was good time as Cody’s bump was just started to show.

We decided to shoot at her beautiful flat that she shares with her husband near the beautiful Holland Park in London. It was a great choice as the weather on the 1st Day of February was amazing, it was a bright sunny afternoon which bask the flat with wonderful natural light, which fitted so well in the nature of the shoot.

Enjoy the images and look out for the next instalment coming sooner than you think…

Manchester Fine Art Engagement Photography – Ammaarah & Hamza

Manchester Surprise Marriage Proposal – Hamza proposes to Ammaarah

I was contacted by Hamza, as he had planned a romantic shopping and dinner trip to Manchester for his beautiful girlfriend Ammaarah. But what she didnt know, was that he was also planning to surprise her with a marriage proposal at the famous Manchester restaurant Rosso over lunch.

We discussed the plan on how and where I would photograph them in the restaurant and also the signal for me when he was ready to pop the question. With the cake ordered that would hold the gorgeous ring, and the table booked, the day was set for a very romantic marriage proposal.

I arrived at the restaurant early to speak to the manager, who showed me where the couple will be seated and the best place at the bar for me to get the best angle to photograph the couple from, but would also be discreet enough that they wouldn’t see me before the big moment.

It was very exciting shooting this surprise wedding proposal, and when they brought out the cake with the ring, and when Ammaarah notice what was happening, the look on her face was priceless!!

After the special moment and Ammaarah saying yes, we took a short walk to Manchester City Centre for a quick couple shoot before I left Hamza & Ammaarah to continue with their celebration.

Congrats to Hamza & Ammaarah, they were such a great couple, I am so glad that I played a part in your precious moment and  got photograph this special day.

Wishing them all the luck in the world and look forward to the announcement of their wedding.

Surrey Family Shoot – Sarah & Daniel Epsom Downs Shoot – Sneak Peeks

Sarah, Daniel and Baby Maiya Family Shoot on Epsom Downs, Surrey – Sneak Peek

As much as I love photographing weddings, when I get a booking for a family shoot, I get really excited and when includes a beautiful baby it is even better. 

When we were discussing where to shoot, we decided that Epsom Downs was a great place, with the backdrop of either the grandstand or the downs that go on for miles, we knew it would be perfect. 

But the day belonged to the gorgeous Maiya, so I thought I would make this preview about her….

Berkshire Engagement Shoot – Katrina & Dominic – “A Month Today”

“A month today” !!!!

With 4 weeks to go until Katrina & Dominic’s wedding day, a notification on Facebook came up from Katrina with the quote “A Month Today”. So I thought this would be a great time to post the pictures from their Engagement Shoot a couple of weeks ago.

For the engagement shoot, we decided that I would travel to their beautiful cottage in the country village of Cookham in Berkshire, and what a spectacular view that caught my eye once I left the A4. Travelling up the winding road through the hills was amazing and I knew this was going to be a great shoot. 

Once I parked up and caught my breath from the gorgeous view, we decided that we would have a walk down the hillside towards the River Thames and maybe, just maybe, try some of the local beverages at the riverside drinking hole. 

Katrina & Dominic were amazing, not just for their photos, but being so cool when I stopped every 5 mins to comment on how beautiful the view was and how lucky they are to live and bring up their daughter here.

It was a beautiful summer late afternoon and the stroll down to the river was wonderful even the tricky slope we had to overcome to get to the bottom. Katrina & Dominic were so relaxed and we could have chatted all evening about their lives, how they got together, and what the plans are for their wedding day. 

So 28 days and counting, can’t wait…

London Engagement Shoot – A walk around Dulwich Park with Kelleigh & Jason

London Engagement Shoot – A walk around Dulwich Park with Kelleigh & Jason

Really can’t believe that 18 months has gone since I first met Kelleigh & Jason to discuss their wedding. With less than two weeks until their big day at Oaks Farm, Shirley in Surrey, we decided to meet up for a chat, a walk and of course some photos. We decided to meet up last Sunday in the gorgeous Dulwich Park, taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings, and we couldn’t resist a few shots and nice cup of tea, across the road in Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Gardens. Got to say, every time I meet up with these two, it is great. They were so relaxed and so easy to get on with and the best thing was that are really excited about me shooting their wedding (ok I added that bit in)!!!

For the second time, I shot Film alongside Digital. I really am loving using this method, and am getting more and more comfortable with shooting Portraiture on Film. Look out for the scans once I get them back from the Photography Labs.

Got to say thank you to Anneka for assisting me and cannot wait to work with you again on Kelleigh & Jason wedding day.
