Light and laughter, daddy's arms, chasing the cat around sunny living room, a bit of tears when being dressed for a walk, mom's touch, excitement of seeing a dog in the park, little snacks as bribes. Childhood. This little angel turned one the day we went for a walk in Chiswick Park to take these photos.Read More
In August I had a chance to spend time with inspiring Celia Munoz, designer and founder of La Coqueta, and her five wonderful children. Celia was being interviewed for Spanish Vogue's supplement Vogue Niños and the editors wanted to see the environment where Celia lives and the way she dresses her kids and herself. We photographed at Celia's spacious Hampstead Heath house, threw together a picnic in the vegetable garden and went for a walk to play in the tall grasses of the Heath.Read More
So glad to share this session today! This family has a home that is connected to one of the beautiful gardens of Notting Hill. The garden is basically an extension of their house and their playground. I always love to photograph my families in places that hold special memories and feel like their home.
There are three in these photos and their love is about to grow even bigger with the arrival of the baby brother this summer. I don't know how this is even possible but I can feel it. We wanted to document all the tenderness and playfulness of the relationship between the mother and the daughter before the arrival of the little one.Read More
What have you asked Santa to give you for Christmas? How about a European adventure tour? This is what Gem, Matt and their adorable little Addy did. They flew to London from their native Canada few days before Christmas and planned a packed tour around England. They started in London, where we took some time for photos and to admire historic architecture, chase seagulls by the iconic Westminster bridge and take a walk to the London Eye. Little Addy seemed to enjoy every moment, jet lag forgotten, eyes bright and sparkling.
A key to this fun session? Preparation! Gem contacted me at the end of October when she was planning the trip and we had the session booked and scheduled months in advance. It could not go any smoother and I seriously home they left some points in the fountains and will be back to London again!Read More
The moment I walked into this adorable family's Notting Hill Home, I knew it was going to be a great photo shoot.
There is nothing I love more than photographing families at the place where they are most comfortable - their Home. I feel especially lucky when their space is as unique as the one Taraneh and Laurens have.
But much more than the apartment has provided me with the inspiration galore... Just look at these three! Bright eyed, so beautiful, full of love and big hugs for each other, their affection comes through in every frame! Little Kasper has so much personality already and he has behaved amazingly all through the session.
And then there is their space - apartment with modern and Nordic vibe, the interior that smoothly marries natural elements like wood tones with large glass windows, white walls and bright pops of colour. Airy open plan living room, flooded with natural light. What more can a photographer ask for?
And Kasper's little nursery made me swoon. Taraneh is great at combining quirky playful accents and details that add warmth and lived-in feel. The combination of clean crisp whites and cheery colours makes for a cozy atmosphere.Read More
2016 ended on a high note. I worked on several interesting projects in London and today I want to share a story I photographed for Los Angeles - based MINI Magazine. For their Holiday Issue, I was commissioned to photograph Whitney Bromberg Hawkings, her husband Peter and their three adorable kids at their stylish house in West London.
Whitney has very interesting story. After over a decade-long career in fashion working with TOM FORD, she left to pursue her dream - the opening of TheFlowerbx - online flower delivery service that sources the freshest blooms and sends them straight to your door.
Whitney, Peter, their two boys Barron, Snowden and little Wallis were a pleasure to work with! Their house reflects their exquisite taste, their love for travel and art. While I was with them, I could not help but admire how well Whitney has taught her boys to care and appreciate special and precious objects. Their living room is elegant, warm and full of charming pieces that also tell their story. They hand picked most of their furniture in France and styled it with contemporary pieces.
Whitney and Peter have met while working for TOM FORD, where Whitney was the SVP of Communications and Peter works as the head of Menswear. Whitney's career decisions resonate with me and I love that in the interview she says: "Everyone assumes I resigned from TOM FORD after I had my third child to "take things easy." On the contrary, I have never worked so hard in my life!"
Whitney's story is an inspiration. To read about Whitney's favorite London spots, beauty routine, how she balances it all, who her three kids are named after, plus much more, head over to MINI Magazine.Read More
