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.

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 »
At the moment I seem to be doing a lot of follow-up sessions with families that I have already photographed, which I really love. Sometimes it is because they have a new sibling joining the family. Other times the parents have booked a first year package (three photo sessions in a year), as these parents… Read more »
The weekend before last I taught a photography workshop at LattjoPop in Streatham, organised by House of Bricolage. I’ve been teaching photography to adults for over ten years but have only recently started offering workshops for parents and children to attend together. This workshop was aimed at giving parents knowledge and a few useful tricks… Read more »
A couple of weeks ago I returned to a family who I first photographed when their daughter was a newborn, after her inspirational breech home birth. It is always lovely to revisit families and see how the children are growing, so I was delighted to be asked back to photograph her as a six month… Read more »
I’m currently talking to a journalist for an article about the positives and negatives of photographing the weddings of friends and family. It is something I have done several times and, whilst I have always enjoyed it, sometimes balancing your roles as guest and photographer can be tricky. Fortunately the same cannot be said of… Read more »
