Well, hello there! Welcome to the first post in 2013! Hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas and New Year celebrations with nearest and dearest I missed my blog over the festive holidays, but it was nice to take a break at the same time. We spent lovely time with family in Ireland, doing basically nothing :) I could have started 2013 with a post about New Year resolutions and things I'm looking forward to in this new year. Instead I'm going to share a photoshoot from December. Lovely Natasha Thompson (who is also a talented photographer) got in touch with me a while ago asking if I would take some photos of her and her family, as it was a rather special time in their lives and they wanted to capture it. Natasha and Mike are expecting the arrival of their second baby very soon! So I thought it would be nice to share their images as a family of three just before their new addition comes into the world. It's always a bit nerve-wrecking photographing a fellow photographer, but it was such a pleasure spending time with Natasha, Mike and their little girl. We couldn't have picked a better day for our shoot. The low winter sun was shining in Richmond and the light was just perfect. Little Alexa has such a bubbly easy going personality, and Natasha and Mike are so perfect for each other, my job was easy really! Guys, it was so nice meeting you and spending a couple of hours in your company! Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2013!
