Hadley and Erica's first photoshoot - newborn photography

Hadley and Erica's parents, Sarah and Martin (also known as Briz) used to work at the same advertising agency as me in Southampton. They too have now set up their own companies here: and here:

But more importantly they have newborn twins! Hadley and Erica were born 3 months prematurely. The Brisdion family have been through a tough time - but the babies are now home and well. They are now three months old so they were actually due this week! They are the cutest little things and it was so lovely to see them looking so well, after they've been through so much, so early in their precious lives.


Adorable no?


Erica was a natural - I'm sure she'll be a model when she grows up!

I love this sleepy look!


Hadley has had a bit more of a bumpy ride than his sister, so it was nice to see some smiles!

Bless him - thank you Hadley for letting us move you about so much, don't think you liked it that much! Sarah said this one is typical Hadley though!

Then we all calmed down for a lovely cuddle! Makes my heart melt!

They're even pulling the same expressions in this one.

Sarah and Briz are obviously amazing parents. Look at the way Hadley's holding onto his mum.

His new game at the moment is sucking his mum's nose - cute!

This is the end of the session, where mummy and daddy were dressing them back up ready for a little nap. Everything has to be done double with these two!

Yes Erica, we know it's tiring being a model, but if you're gonna earn the big bucks!

Thought I'd end with a gorgeous peaceful one of Hadley in mum's arms.

Thank you to the Brisdion family for letting me into their home and photographing them - hopefully I'll be allowed back soon before they get too big! To see all the photos from this shoot see here.

Engagement shoot in Winchester - Sarah and Danny

One of my best friends, Sarah, recently met the man of her dreams and I couldn't be happier for her! We decided to celebrate the occasion on Sunday with an engagement shoot. Sarah and Danny met in Winchester, so we thought having the session there made sense. Their wedding is next week - so she was having her hair and make up trial in the morning, which was convenient as she was all glammed up for the shoot!

When we started the shoot the light was going fast, so we made the most of what we had, then turned it into a night shoot instead!

We started at Winchester Cathedral.

This was in the Christmas market behind the Cathedral, they had Christmas trees, stalls, ice rink - so romantic!

Then as it got dark we had a wonder around the city.

Some of the Christmas lights were beautiful!

Aren't they both so gorgeous?!

I love these twinkly lights behind them here.

Here's Danny doing his one of his model poses (and very good he was too - apart from when he decided to start lunging!! We were all in fits of giggles at that point!)


I love this one of Sarah - I think she looks amazing.

Time to warm up with a coffee!

Then we headed out again to get a few more. They're so in love - it's easy to see!

This one was taken up at the Great Hall - I believe they've just started doing weddings here too now.

I got these signs from Etsy - I think they're so cool!

Thanks to Sarah and Danny who made the shoot so much fun (they didn't even moan about the cold!) Can't wait til the wedding at Hotel Du Vin, Winchester next week!
