I'm thrilled when I get to work with fellow creatives! Sam got in touch after seeing how I'd photographed another business, specifically this blog post for Farley's cool hair salon.  Sam is a designer who graduated from London, Central Saint Martins and is the brains behind Darkest Star.  She is at the very front of each creation and its manufacture. Quality, precision and dedication went into developing her own label of erotic lingerie designs (now I have your attention?) The items are very much about empowering women and sexuality. Sam needed some photos of herself, but liked how I also portrayed the business too. I was honoured and flattered as she explained, "I love your work and just know you are the one to capture me". When I find a designer or product I like, I want to know what their workspace is like, and of course love it all the more, for being hand crafted with love and dedication in this country! So me and my camera snooped about Sam's Hitchin studio one day, and found things that intrigued and engaged, things that explained her, that showed not just a beautiful woman, but an empowered talented designer, maker and craftsperson. It was a pleasure!

If you are looking for a relaxed and fun portrait shoot, with photos that show your personalities, then get in touch!  Kathy told me "We are fun, we smile alot, I really want some fun photographs of us in a place that means alot to me and my two daughters"
We headed up to the gorgeous and unspoilt Barton hills, just outside Hitchin. This is a place the three of them spent time exploring when the girls were younger. What I loved about this shoot, was the fun they had, I felt almost invisible at times, I hope they look back on these and remember so many things, about closeness, and family and the amazing location too. When I look at these images, I just smile and think about the short time we had together. I hope that they see so much more, it was touching to see a mum so happy and relaxed with her grown up girls. Whatever age your children are, a shoot like this will be fun and give you lasting memories. Print your photos, look at them and smile and remember everything you love about them.

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.

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
