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!
Kids fashion shoot for Fin & Zee’s new range for SS19
It was really lovely to work again with Kiki again this season, with a fashion shoot showcasing their lovely new kimonos and dresses. As you can see we had lots of fun with real-life mother and daughter models who all looked simply beautiful in the kimonos which are available in both adult and children's sizes.
Now that we are heading into the winter months, it's often a great opportunity to focus on having family portraits within the home. Photographing families in their home is a comfortable and practical way to do a photo session. The images taken in your own home will mean far more both now and in future years than any that could be posed during a formal studio shoot. In order to structure a session that is unique to each family, lots of collaboration and communication goes on before the day of the session.
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
