This selection is from a vintage kids editorial shoot at the wonderful Mrs Benn shop in East Dulwich, London. I adore vintage clothes, and have collected kids vintage clothes for many years. If you’re interested in sustainable fashion, then you’ll love Mrs Benn, with its clothes rails heaving with beautiful vintage kids clothes. I also find it so comforting to be surrounded by 1970’s toys and furniture, as they transport me back to my childhood. There are some things from my 70’s childhood that are better left forgotten ( strict teachers and revolting school dinners anyone?) but I’ll always love the clothes and toys we had!
Like many children's photographers these days, I started off with an etsy shop, selling vintage styled kids clothes. I needed to take pictures for the online shop, sparking a renewed passion for photography I'd forgotten about since my school days. Pop over to Mrs Benn's shop to find my bonnets, which are displayed among an array of beautiful vintage clothes and toys.
As seen in my portfolio on the Vogue Italia website.
This family portrait session gives you a taste for how a session with me runs, the kinds of images you'll have to frame and store in albums, and also gives you a sense of my vision and style both in regards to how I shoot and how I process images. Get in touch if you'd like to talk about having a portrait session in your own home and garden. No two family portrait sessions are the same; they are a true and unique reflection of you as a family, which is why I love doing them so much. You just don't get that honest sense of who you really are in studio photographs…your home is the perfect setting to make photographs that hold real memories.
The Grace Tales; family photography in London; It was my absolute pleasure to photograph jewellery designer Carolina Bucci, and her gorgeous boys Lucas and Julius, for The Grace Tales this summer.
I love having the opportunity to do editorial shoots and family photography at the same time. We came up with a range of images to use on The Grace Tales, some directed and others which were more documentary photography.
If you would like a similar family photography session, with predominantly black and white images, then do contact me for details as I’d love to hear from you.

It was really exciting to get some of my photographs published in this lovely Thames and Hudson book, The New Artisans. I took several portraits of artist Sally Nencini at work, in her Peckham studio. Sally upholsters furniture and also designs and makes knitted pieces for the home. www.sallynencini.com
