As I wind down for Christmas I just wanted to share some images from a lovely pre-Christmas shoot I did recently. This little boy was an absolute joy to photograph – expressive, happy and chilled out. He also rocks a Christmas jumper better than anyone else I’ve met. I’ve had a wonderful year meeting and… Read more »

When I am asked to do a newborn session the new parents usually want to do it in the comfort of their own home, or sometimes they come to my studio. This was the first newborn session I have been asked to do in an outside location. Location family photography is fantastic because, as well… Read more »
I’ve written before about how much I love photographing a newborn baby with their older sibling. It’s an amazing time to record the changing dynamic of a family. Working with this family was extra special as I also got to record the special relationship between the twins. I’m an only child who grew up with… Read more »
Earlier this year I wrote about the wonderful privilege of doing a newborn photo session of my oldest friend’s daughter. Recently I photographed her again for the second shoot in our first year package. This session took place at my studio as the second shoot often does – with babies around six months old a… Read more »
Sydenham Woods in autumn is possibly my favourite place to do location family photo shoots and for this one we were treated to the most amazing weather. In the open the sun was too strong for flattering photography, but in the woods it was dappled and beautiful. It was lovely to work with one of… Read more »
My journey out to Hampshire last weekend was bittersweet. I was going to photograph little L for the final shoot of his First Year Package, and whilst I was happy to see him and his family again I was very sorry to think that I won’t be watching him grow up anymore. We had another… Read more »
On a beautiful and hot summer’s day (before the recent downpours) I faced quite a challenge: a family portrait shoot for fellow photographer. Suzanne Mitchell and I had participated in the New Creative Markets programme at Photofusion together and had discussed how, as we are always behind the camera, there are never any good pictures… Read more »
The most wonderful thing about having the opportunity to photograph the same people repeatedly is seeing how they change and grow. As I have mentioned before, recording the changes children go through during their first year is amazing but there is something even more special than that: recording people becoming parents.
Just back from my longest camping trip in years and feeling thoroughly replenished by so much time outdoors, I’m very excited to be working in collaboration with Treemendus Learning to offer family portraits at a Forest School session. On Sunday 20th September experienced environmental educator Gemma Hindi will be running a family Forest School workshop… Read more »
I’m very pleased to have had some of my baby wearing photographs published in the latest issue of Juno magazine. If you haven’t read it, Juno is a wonderful magazine with an ethos based on conscious parenting, sustainability, social justice, non-violence and a commitment to personal growth and spiritual awareness.
I just received a lovely testimonial from the mother of the striking girl with the blue ice cream on my postcards. It’s always lovely to get good feedback and I look forward to photographing her family again soon. “I have used Anna for personal and professional photos and always get lovely comments about the quality….

Last week I had another session with a new sibling being added to a family, this time in my studio. I’d photographed this family when their daughter was around five months old and it was wonderful to photograph their son at the same age. The main challenge with a mobile child and immobile baby is… Read more »
