This session was quite special to me.
I met this lovely mum a few years ago during a local market, the St John’s Hill Festival, in Clapham Junction and since then she became a client and a friend. I worked with her son when he turned 1 year old and she wanted to have some family photos based on the movie Up. Okay Alexander was a bit grumpy 🙂 but he was so cute anyway! You can see some from that session here.
Then we worked together again when she decided to launch her website of personalised gifts. I was really impressed by her products and their quality and I embraced the project. I really had fun styling and photographing something different for a change. Actually if you are looking for a special gift you should have a look at the Lavender Closet, she has some exquisite things there!
A few months ago she gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl and I was really happy to capture her first days. She was the last newborn I photographed last year!
I visited them in their home in Wimbledon and we had a home session. I brought with me some props so we could have a studio feeling in some images while still enjoying a more relaxed session at home. I had to win big brother over playing Cars a little bit but eventually he warmed up. It’s not always easy dealing with toddlers 🙂
Let me introduce baby Lucia, 9 days new.
