London Maternity Portrait Photography – Sarah’s Battersea Park Maternity Shoot

At the time of writing this, Sarah has given birth to a beautiful baby girl called Genevieve. I want to send the biggest congratulations and I am so glad we got a chance to do your London Maternity Photography session and you received the images in time before your wonderful bundle of joy enter the world xxx

London Maternity Photography Shoot at Battersea Park with Sarah

It was such a pleasure to photograph Sarah for her London Maternity Photography session on a beautiful sunny day in Battersea Park South West London. With the River Thames running past the park with views of Chelsea Bridge to the East and Albert Bridge to the West, it is such a picturesque place to have a Photo Shoot. 

Sarah got in contact with me when she was 38 weeks, so it was literally a couple of weeks before her baby girl was due. We decided to meet by the Peace Pagoda next to the River, on a gorgeous summer day in May, where we could get stunning shots of Chelsea Embankment and the Bridges as backdrops. Also, the Peace Pagoda is such an iconic place in Battersea Park alongside the Zoo and bandstand that we had to get images with Sarah there.

The morning was gorgeous; the sun was shining with a cool breeze and it was just a perfect peaceful day for a London Maternity Photography session. We started out taking portraits next to the River changing the view from Chelsea Bridge, Albert Bridge and Chelsea Embankment. We then move a small garden with the Peace Pagoda in the background, before then moving to the Peace Pagoda itself.

We chatted quite a lot through the session, finding out that she had two other girls, move from USA 8 years ago with her husband and, also was in the middle of moving house!

We moved the session towards the centre of Battersea Park taking in the long grass and some of the other beauties in the park including Russell Page Garden.

After a quick outfit change we went to the famous Bandstand for a few iconic images and then finally ending the session next to the Fountains (which decided to stop when we wanted them in the background)

It was such a pleasurable photoshoot and look forward to doing more of these sessions in the future.

Below is some of my favourite images from Sarah’s London Maternity Photography session.

Berkshire Engagement Shoot – Katrina & Dominic – “A Month Today”

“A month today” !!!!

With 4 weeks to go until Katrina & Dominic’s wedding day, a notification on Facebook came up from Katrina with the quote “A Month Today”. So I thought this would be a great time to post the pictures from their Engagement Shoot a couple of weeks ago.

For the engagement shoot, we decided that I would travel to their beautiful cottage in the country village of Cookham in Berkshire, and what a spectacular view that caught my eye once I left the A4. Travelling up the winding road through the hills was amazing and I knew this was going to be a great shoot. 

Once I parked up and caught my breath from the gorgeous view, we decided that we would have a walk down the hillside towards the River Thames and maybe, just maybe, try some of the local beverages at the riverside drinking hole. 

Katrina & Dominic were amazing, not just for their photos, but being so cool when I stopped every 5 mins to comment on how beautiful the view was and how lucky they are to live and bring up their daughter here.

It was a beautiful summer late afternoon and the stroll down to the river was wonderful even the tricky slope we had to overcome to get to the bottom. Katrina & Dominic were so relaxed and we could have chatted all evening about their lives, how they got together, and what the plans are for their wedding day. 

So 28 days and counting, can’t wait…

Also on this shoot, I used my Mamiya Medium Format Camera to take a few images, and these are some of the scans I received back from UK Film Lab . Really happy with the results, and hopefully Katrina and Dominic are pleased xxx
