99 Red Balloons …

Well ok not 99 ! but a good few accompanied little Miss Poppy and Mum & Dad to the faithful country park last week, I met Poppy when I shot her cake smash, she is a lovely little girl with a big personality, she has a real vintage look about her which I ADORE x


The outfit works perfectly although Poppy wasn’t 100% about the bow !!


Poppy’s Mum Kate has a great eye for design and detail and I just love these balloons with this pretty frock (it IS a frock dontcha think ?) and those curls !!!


Now i’ll let you into a secret.. this was one of those shoots that are more luck than judgement.. Poppy wasn’t really feeling herself AT ALL and really needed lots of Mummy cuddles, so I was really using Mum and Dad’s distractions skills and her Kryptonite.. cheese and raisins !!!!


Poppy did great, we took it at a slow pace and tried to keep it as lighthearted, Poppy had lots of cuddles and we managed to get some sweet shots x

I mean honestly LOOK AT THIS HAT !!!!


A few wandering dogs helped distract us with a wag of a tail and Poppy even fed one beautiful German Shepherd a biscuit !

We had a good stroll through the orchard ..


And then decided we were probably pushing our luck as Poppy was looking pretty fed up ! so we walked past the field and decided to have one last go ..

and then …

THIS HAPPENED !!!! I just love it ! Poppy totally rocked this all by herself ! ❤ it just go to show…working with children and probably animals is BRILLIANT !! and so rewarding !


Thanks so much Poppy xx

In an kentish country garden

Summer is on its way for sure ! the birds are happy, the bee’s are making honey, it was 5 blue skies and sunny down at the country park where Jasmine & Freddie were having their portraits

Lucy, proud mummy and stylist was wonderful and had supplied some excellent props, 10

I LOVE how this dress pops in the meadow !


The cow parsley is so tall and looks so delicate and lacey, turned out to be a great back ground for softer coloured dress …


jasmine is a lovely little girl, that adorable mix of shy but brave.. she had a really thoughtful moment with the flowers


Freddie was super well behaved and was amused by the bubbles


he is a real cutie pie.. with eyes like little mirrors, look close and you can see the sky and oak trees, beautiful


Thanks so much Lucy for choosing me to take your family photos it was a real pleasure xxx

Waltzing Matilda ( warning you may need a tissue or two)

Are we sitting comfortably ? then we can begin..

This is the story of a couple in love, a princess called Matilda and a handsome horse called Prince.


This is Tilly ( aka Matilda) she is just so sweet, her mum Laura is British and her daddy Tim is Australian, the photo shoot was booked to take place at a gorgeous stables where Laura grew up, and where her horse Prince is kept.


This is prince, isnt he handsome..


Laura & Prince have been friends for 12 years, having a little one means you dont always get time to play as much as you’d like so Prince teaches other children to ride in his spare time !


what a gentle soul .

Laura, Tim & Matilda are leaving our shores at the end of the summer to start a new life in Australia so this shoot was all about making memories ..


Tilly in her christening gown ( worn previously by her Mum & Auntie!) looking cheeky ..


isnt she the cutest !
