newborn lifestyle shoot at home {london}

Almost two years ago I photographed the wedding of Emma and Tom at St William of York in Forest Hill – a fantastic day surrounded by wonderful family and friends. So I was absolutely delighted when they asked if I could photograph their gorgeous little baby boy, Henry Arthur, who was born back in July.

Last week I visited Henry and Emma to take some natural portraits of them at home. Despite starting to teeth, Henry was a fabulous model (as was his mummy ) and did great in his first professional shoot!

Congratulations again to Emma and Tom – Henry is a little cutie. Here are some favourites from the shoot.

winter wedding photography at the lanesborough hotel, london

I love winter weddings - especially in London - where the elegance and glamour of the city really comes alive in the low light. Even when it rains, the reflections of the city lights provide a wonderful backdrop. I am sure this is something Victoria and Brenden had in mind when they chose to get married at The Lanesborough Hotel in Knightsbridge in November. This fabulous venue is perfect for a city wedding come rain or shine, or - in our case - a late winter's afternoon.

Victoria chose to get ready at the equally stylish Sloane Club in Chelsea, while the evening was spent eating well at The Bull and Last in Highgate - which serves some amazing food. We loved all of the wonderful details of this wedding, from the beautiful vintage veil and the Manolo Blahnik shoes, to the personalized cupcakes and gingerbread men - this was a wedding full of style and personal touches. Here some highlights from the day.
