A few weeks ago, after the speeches at my friends Lai & Graham’s wedding at Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire, my friend Julia asked me to take a few photographs of her and my wife Michelle in the daffodils just next to the venue.  These were only jokey photographs (and dare I say it, Julia & Michelle had consumed a little bit of alcohol… ;-)) so I experimented a bit with off camera flash.  I like these photographs so thought they were worth sharing – each shot was taken with two flashes off camera, both triggered using Pocket Wizards.

    Claire - I’ve just stumbled across these (while typing a certain blog feature)… and I LOVE them! The word ‘enchanted’ springs to mind. And their sense of fun shines out. Fantastic.

One of the things I have been proudest of since starting my wedding photography business is that I have remained friends with many of the bride and grooms I have worked with long after their wedding day.  I was therefore delighted to hear last year from Rebecca and Peter, a couple whose wedding I covered in July 2007, that they were expecting a baby!

I got to meet Rebecca and Peter’s beautiful baby daughter, Martha, recently when Rebecca asked me to take some photographs of Martha for her.  Martha is such a cute little girl and wasn’t phased by the camera at all!  I always prefer to do baby and toddler portraits at the child’s home as that way they are more comfortable, especially with all their toys surrounding them!

Rebecca and Peter had also invited their family round for the photoshoot so we also took some lovely family portraits as well – of course Martha was always the star of the show!

Rebecca and Peter – congratulations to you both again! Martha is a beautiful little girl, I hope she enjoys looking back at these photographs in years to come!

Here are a few of my favourite photographs:
