I loved photographing these First Holy Communion ceremonies at St Joseph’s Church, Highgate. Children combine fun with faith in a very moving way, I think. Here are a few reportage pictures from the day.
‘We are looking for natural wedding photography.’ Clients often say this to me, and I am always thrilled when they do because I love natural pictures.It’s all a matter of taste, but I think it’s fair to say that the pictures in this link have a pretty strong whiff of fromage to them: http://thechive.com/2010/03/26/got-a-little-too-creative-with-the-ol-wedding-photos-17-photos/Natural portraiture can […]
This week’s date is at The Sampler, on Upper Street, Islington http://www.thesampler.co.uk/store/ . They also have a branch in South Ken if you must live over that way.If you haven’t discovered Jamie Hutchinson’s truly brilliant little off licence, then get thee down there at once. Buy yourself a sampling card (like an oyster card only for […]
Everyone needs a dose of fabulousness now and then. K is a great friend of mine and generally she will put an umbrella in your camera if you point it at her. She’s used to directing from behind the camera, but she hates having her picture taken. A former TV Director for the BBC, she is now […]
On Saturday night a friend asked me to photograph the confirmation ceremony at St Joseph’s Highgate. It was a beautiful ceremony and I love the way these teenagers approached their confirmation with such genuine enthusiasm. Confirmation is about identity; committing yourself to be who you are. In a way it’s a coming out ceremony – […]
I think I have a girl crush on my friend K. I mean, she turns up with Dragon Fruit and pistachio and rose scented cakes, so it’s hard not to! And she wears butterfly shirts! She’s also one of my dearest friends and we’ve known each other for ooh possibly decades. I love the fact that […]
Do you need a break from wedding planning or just need a massive injection of fun? This week’s offering is car and swan centric, inspired by the men in my life.
D and I have taken to getting tickets. Tickets are brilliant because you can ask the other person to keep a date free and then surprise them on the day. There’s no wimping out on the day with, ‘I’m too tired.’ For Christmas, D got me really fantastic tickets…I was bowled over by Ronnie Scott’s. […]
Everyone is innately beautiful. Nature cannot be otherwise; beauty is at the heart of our world. A wise philosopher said that ‘Nature is evidence of the presence of the Divine.’ And just as God is so beautiful, so nature is beautiful without even trying. It is only when we try to go against our natural […]
This was the most utterly romantic engagement shoot I think I have ever had the privilege of being part of. Maggie and Michael met me in Paris, all the way from Hong Kong to commemorate their engagement. We spent a fabulous day and night around Paris, commemorating the magical, transitory state of being engaged. Maggie […]
