Meetings

One of the things I really enjoy about my photography business is that I get to meet so many lovely people. I photographed this gorgeous little girl who was so attentive in front of the camera at just 10 weeks old, a model in the making! Her parents were warm and welcoming and I also got to meet some of the proud Grandparents, a real pleasure.

How To Avoid This Pose

When I was 2 ½ a photographer came to my nursery to take photos. I remember trotting into this room where there was a massive white umbrella and a tripod and a screen thing and I was really scared.  The umbrella in particular was really scary. My mood definitely shows in the photo so credit to the photographer for capturing how I was feeling. And I love the jumper, hand-knitted by my Mum.

I suspect that it’s partly due to this experience aged 2 ½ that explains why I still avoid studio set-ups. I enjoy the spontaneity and the endless think-on-your-feet creative options that are possible outside a studio. I’m very happy running around indoors and outdoors with camera in hand taking photos playing along with the children, but I wouldn’t like to pass onto any little girl or boy the fear of the white umbrella!!

Have Camera, Will Travel

I finally got to London to photograph three families who’d asked for photos of the children if I was ever down South. And it was a lovely excuse to catch up with friends who I hadn’t seen for too long. The photo shoots were great – being in London there was plenty of green space to have a run around (there are parks everywhere). I got to hang out with some very cool little people and even got to photograph Poppy the dog with her Princess Diana eyes….
