First Year Photo Session Primrose Hill

First Year Photo Session Primrose Hill

Sunny Primrose Hill in London was the perfect backdrop for a photo-session with lovely clients I had met the year prior when they had just welcomed their baby girl. This is a special place for this beautiful family who wanted to have their daughters first year session where they had spent so much time becoming a family together.

As a location based photographer I travel across London for photo-sessions and its really important to me that the location chosen by clients is somewhere that is special to them, that way i know their photographs will become treasured memories of their lives as a young family. For some this is in their home or in the beautiful green spaces london has to offer, for others it might be both and I am more than happy to split a session between home and the park - time and weather permitting of course!!

You can see more of little Theia's newborn session here.

The Black Family

The Black Family

This lovely couple asked me to take photographs of them as they were expecting their third child. I was very lucky to then photograph them again one their new son arrived.

Richmond Park

Richmond Park

There are so many pretty places in and around Twickenham and a really great one is Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park. Its a great place for kids to run around and explore or take a picnic and sit by one of the small ponds, its the perfect way to spend the day and why not tie in with a family photoshoot!! I took some photos of my daughter Ella having fun there recently and I hope you'll agree it makes a beautiful photo location!

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

Every-where we go at the moment the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, its so beautiful and my daughter is thrilled by all the pink around us. I had the idea that it would be nice to dress Ella in her pretty pink dress and get some photos under the cherry blossoms. We are very lucky to live right between two of the most beautiful royal parks, on one side Richmond Park and on the other Bushy Park, and on a recent walk to feed the ducks I found the perfect location where there are quite a few cherry blossoms next to each other. We waited until the right time when it was warm enough and not too windy and when the perfect afternoon arrived and we siezed the moment - Ella loved it! Aside from placing her where I wanted her under the trees she did the rest herself, she danced and picked flowers and had a bit of fun pretending she was a fairy!

As you will know if you have visited my blog or website recently my family moved back to the UK in September last year, I am currently on maternity leave after having my second child in October and am now starting to contemplate how and when I will start Tantrum here in the UK. There are many things to consider for me as the business will be very different to Dubai, not least because I won't be able to take advantage of the beautiful warm weather of the UAE. As I work things out I will be posting a series of photographs from shoots taken with clients over there. This exercise is, for me, really one of organisation - I need to conclude that chapter of Tantrum and make sure all client shoots are properly archived but I also want to share some of them with readers and prospective new clients here in the UK, so I will start with a few from a lovely little baby called Harry. As you will see we were able to take these photos outside, with nothing more than a nappy on him and he slept through the whole shoot! We were on hand with blankets in between shots, but the temperature was perfect for him - I somehow can't see this happening in the UK!
