So 2015 was a big year for my lovely little business, I decided to make the big step of moving from my gorgeous studio in High Barnet to all location based shoots. Many thought I was mad to give up such a lovely space, and leave the comfort zone of the studio.
Here is an article, from The photographer Sept 2015 explaining why I did ,and the great changes is has made to me as a portrait photographer in London. It really pushed my photography in ways that are both good for me in a creative way, and for my clients , their portraits are now more unique to their family.

I think it is a real insight to how a great adventure (which Africa, Tanzania, and the whole experience with Raleigh International was) can completely change you’re outlook in life! And in so many ways that you might not even imagine!
2016 is also proving to be a very exciting year, with many new projects and adventures planned! I look forward to telling you all about them! 🙂
They really all do seem to have stemmed from this initial adventure! So go on push yourself to do something out of the ordinary! You never know where it might take you!
Speak soon! Love from a very excited portrait photographer 🙂
Having returned from another wonderful trip to Nepal with the charity Raleigh International, I am now back to shooting my day job, with some lovely location portraits in and around London.
So with the weather improving (slightly!) I have started to shoot all of my portraits of children and families out on location, and what a joy! I love to explore the beautiful countryside and parks that we have in and around London. We really do have a wealth of great open spaces that are perfect for family portraiture.

I am loving the freedom of not being tied to the studio, and the results I am finding are much more natural, and in keeping for the growing trend of lifestyle location portraits, although they are definitely more time consuming, clients are relishing choosing locations more personal to them, resulting in more unique portraiture.
Some of the more memorable shoots from last year include, a vintage bus shoot, a skate park shoot, the Cutty Sark, the seaside, and many others!
If you and your family would like to capture some unique portraits in a location personal to you, please do contact me to discuss your ideas! It would be great to hear from you!
I am now taking bookings for the summer holidays! With weddings and other commissions meaning I am very busy, please do contact me as soon as possible to book a particular date.
I look forward to meeting you!
A few weeks ago, I met a beautiful family down on Hampstead Heath for some lovely natural family portraits.
Three lovely smiley faces, were there to greet me on a marvellously sunny Autumn day in September! I have taken images of this growing family for a number of years and it really is a joy to see them all together for such a fun filled afternoon.
We started outside the very photogenic Kenwood House in North London
Such an impressive backdrop for some lovely family portraits. With beautiful tree lined pathways and gorgeous architecture we couldn’t go wrong!
These three little munchkins loved running through the park, and clearly had a great time in and out of the trees! Mum and dad even popped into a few of the images!
If you would like to capture your family or children in this beautiful setting please do contact me for more details! Also take a look at my portfolio to give you a taste of the work that I do.
