I'm lucky to live in this amazing countryside, with this fantastic Lavender field on my doorstep. People travel from miles to see it, and I love photographing here every year! Evie and Ethan's Dad booked me for a surprise shoot with his two lovely children. I love that 'Bear' became part of the shoot too! Their Dad hoped the children could keep quiet about our trip up to Hitchin Lavender, and then present his wife with some prints of the children for her birthday. We had an amazing time, the sky was perfect, the bees buzzed happily but didnt bother us. The lavender was, as ever glorious. What I probably loved most on this particular shoot, aside from that perfect mass of purple, was that the siblings were just themselves, the images show their spirit and their happy inquisitive nature. If you havent been, you really must plan a visit next Summer, there is a great cafe with delicous food. Oh and they managed to 'Keep Mum' So now she knows, I thought I'd share on my page, the perfect English Summer beauty of this field of Lavender.

Claire and Simon got ready in the same place, and hadn't planned this, but I set up a little 'first look' for them on which was super sweet!

Halloween wraps fear in innocence,
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat...

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It's the only way to live 
In cars

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me please
If I open my door 
In cars

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right 
In cars

I love photographing love and all that encompasses it. So to be asked to photograph this very special moment, by someone who clearly planned and wanted to make a special moment very memorable was an honour. We exchanged emails and the details and timings of this event were shared with me. Kyoto park is a pretty (and busy) little Japenese garden in Holland Park London. Full of peacocks, squirrels and lots of vibrant plants.  It was essential that I go un-noticed, this was a challenge, I picked a position and read a paper, whilst prentending to be interested in the other things happening in the park, not the real reason I had been booked to be there!  The photos were a big surprise, and Jess did not twig that Raj had arranged for me to be there. After she said YES!! I watched them take iphone photos of each other and offered to take their snap and email to them. (the last few photos on this blog post) Raj and Jess, I wish you both every happiness.
