I photograph my family the whole time and pretty much everything that we do. But it’s very rare that I actually do a formal shoot with my family and purposely dress up the kids. So I used my brother and sister in laws trip to Los Angeles as the perfect excuse to go play with the light under Washington Pier. Zac and my niece Rosie stayed clean and dry for all of two seconds but both loved being the centre of attention. As you can see I’m blessed with a super photogenic family! I even got in front of the camera myself which I never do. Good thing I’m good at photoshop!

Don't get me wrong, I am loving LA, its beautiful weather and magical light. But for the first time since I've been here I've found myself craving autumn leaves, frosty mornings and thick knitted jumpers. Here are some of my favourite pictures from gorgeous children's brand Dotty Dungarees photographed last January. I've been shooting their look books for 3 years now, saying good bye to my UK clients for pastures unknown in LA was a big leap of faith. Dotty Dungarees brand is about the spirit of adventure. Georgie, Alice and I had so much fun thinking up the next adventure for our merry band of regular models.
My dream life and work life collide most days but this years Bumble and Ava Autumn Winter 2017/18 shoot was particularly special. The fabrics for this seasons fabrics were designed by my childhood friend and extremely talented illustrator Susannah Garrod. The 'Victoriana' theme dreamt up between Susie and brand owner Natasha Dickenson was the perfect excuse to indulge in a nostalgic childhood theme for this season shoot. But what made the shoot all the more special is that most of the models are my family. So a big thank you to my cousins Oli, Jess, Thomas, Clare, Plum and Henry for lending me Max, Ella, Sophia, Milo, Immy and Martha. Last but not least my own son Zac, who was bribed into posing with bubbles and bananas...again. And another big thank you to Susie for bravely letting us borrow her newly refurbished house in Anglesey!
