Sydenham family photographer


Brothers Jay and Zak were absolutely full of beans when I went to photograph them at their flat in Sydenham.

Bromley newborn baby photographer


Ellen and Pete booked their newborn session a couple of months before their due date to make sure they could get their newborn baby photography session done within the first few weeks of the birth.

The Shard Shangri-La, central London, proposal photography

This was an unusual one for me – to photograph an actual proposal! I was contacted by The One Romance – a company that plans wedding proposals – to take part in a planned proposal at the Shangri-la Hotel at The Shard in central London. My job was to capture ‘the down-on-one-knee moment’ as it happened – the emotion, the reaction, the answer! Eek – no pressure there then. I just hoped she’d say yes!
