A couple in love

I have followed Emily Quinton for some time.  As an established photographer with a real passion for the art of photography, she has a real talent for capturing that special moment between people.   Emily has a real eye for detail and her fine art work is just breathtaking, check out her botanical advent. So when I read her blog about offering 1-2-1 sessions, I jumped at the chance to get involved.
I am a firm believer that you can never stop learning and that the only way to become good at what you do is push yourself and learn from everything you do.  Many photographers believe they are only as good as their last photo and constantly seek out workshops, techniques, inspiration to always improve. It is because of this that I push myself with every photo I take and why I jumped at a chance to learn from Emily.

Part of the session included a shoot with a couple and I was lucky enough to shoot the the gorgeous Emma and Lee. 
Emma and Lee got married back in October and a very much a couple in love. These guys are totally devoted to each other and I hope I captured that love in the images below. It was great shooting them and I thought today would be the perfect time to share the images from our afternoon stroll around London. I hope you guys are both enjoying your first New Year as a married couple.

Tea, cake and photography

Fanni and I had been discussing a shoot swap for some time when we stumbled across our mutual love of cake! It was at this point we decided our shoot should involve cake and then the idea just developed into something more than a shoot. After a bit of research we settled on the most wonderful tea shop bake-a-boo, and rather than indulging in a spot of afternoon tea together we thought we would share the fun with friends and invited the lovely Dasha along and the very talented make-up artist Aline

Walking into bake-a-boo is just heaven. There are delicious treats everywhere, the decor is just amazing and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. I can't thank Zoe enough for letting us invade her gorgeous shop and creating a beautiful haven in West Hampstead.  If you are ever at a loose end or fancy a lovely afternoon tea, I can not rave about this shop enough!

It ended up being a great day of us girls hanging out, having fun and taking photos.  It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday and I would gladly do it all again.
