Mackenzie Family | At Home Newborn Session

 

Being a parent myself and experiencing just how quickly time flies, and dare I say, just how quickly you forget so many of those little details, the fleeting expressions and life changing moments, I really do believe having photos of this special time is something you will never regret. I promise you that one day, your little four year old, will sit on your laptop, eyes full of wonder, holding your hands, as they revel in just how tiny they were and how their cute little bum rested so neatly in the palm of you hand. Never underestimate just how beautifully photographs can preserve your memories and pass them on to future generations. Family photography is a true extension of my wedding photography business, in every respect, and I feel lucky to be chosen by my couples and family clients. 

After photographing Lilian and Jimmy's maternity shoot, I was so looking forward to continuing their story with their newborn session at home. I love doing newborn sessions in the family home; they are so intimate and personal, as well as being more comfortable for families in those first few weeks as a new parent. All you need is the light from a window and the love of new parents to make some magic. 

Have a great weekend everyone! xx

 

Stefanie & Alex's Story | A Winter Elopement in London

 

I shot my first London elopement over 6 years ago, and ever since then, I've been lucky enough to photograph elopements every year. They are magical to document; intimate, personal, and romantic. 

Stefanie & Alex may have had a bitterly cold day for their wedding, but the light was glorious. It was hazy and golden, soft and and mystical. The perfect backdrop for the day. Stefanie & Alex wanted to incorporate parts of London into their images, but not "touristy" or "typical" backdrops, so we decided on Hampstead and the Pergola Hill & Gardens. Both some of my favourite spots in London. It's always a privilege to document a couple's elopement; the only ones to witness their marriage and their first moments as husband & wife. Samuel and I were also asked to be their witnesses which is even more of a privilege. I am so grateful to Stefanie & Alex for asking me to be there on their wedding day and I am thrilled they love their photographs..."The images are beautiful and exactly what we had hoped to capture on our wedding day. We can't thank you enough for photographing and being a part of our special day...."

Hair and makeup were by the ever talented Kirsty McCall and she did an amazing job as always!

I am currently working on my favourite images of 2016 which will be coming to the blog soon. I am also looking forward to capturing my second wedding of 2017 on Saturday before a bit of time off to recuperate! xx
