I feel very fortunate to be asked to go into people's homes and take photos of them with their families. It is not something I take lightly; I know asking someone into your home is a generous and hospitable thing to do and I really appreciate it. One of the great things about this is that I get to see how others design their spaces. As a total interiors addict, it's a great way to get real-life inspiration and I was blown away by Alice and John's fabulous, quirky flat, filled with carefully curated vintage items. It provided a wonderful backdrop to the photoshoot and I love these soft, light-filled photos. It's so wonderful to have pictures of a first family home. I remember spending hours looking at childhood photos, full of half-remembered rooms and familiar objects in unfamiliar places.
You can already see the sweet, playful relationship that Alfie has with his parents! In the local park, there was even more space for larking about, tickling and generally throwing Alfie about! He was such a gorgeous, smiley boy, with a measure of cheekiness thrown in just to keep it interesting!
I can't think of a better way to spend such a beautiful, FUN summer day! Thanks for having me, Alice, John and Alfie!
