Jordan and Sophie have been best friends since birth! Their moms met at a playground in Tokyo ...and both families were transferred to Hong Kong within 2 weeks of one another.
They have such a special bond and are so sweet together!
This coming summer will be there first time these little girls are living on separate continents...it is going to be such a huge change for them and I know they are going to miss each other so much!
I loved the idea of doing a best friend photoshoot for them so that no matter where these little girls end up, they will always have these photos as a special memory of their early years together.
I had the best afternoon with them...It was BOILING hot and Deep Water Bay was so humid and infested with mosquitos...hahaha! You would never tell from the photographs! Sophie and J.J are total naturals and handled the unfavorable circumstances with such ease!
Thanks for being such supermodel rockstars girls! Love you both lots xxx

"A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give."
Annabel Elizabeth Jane Robbins was born on 25th April 2013...I met her on Sunday afternoon so she was just over 3 weeks old. She was so alert during our session and I just couldn't get enough of those gorgeous big eyes!
Her parents, Will and Stefanie, are so great! Hong Kong is such a small place and I can't believe it was the first time I'd met them. We have loads of mutual friends so I really hope I get to see a lot more of them in the future!
I loved our afternoon together! They were both so easy-going and we spent the whole afternoon laughing. I have a very natural approach towards taking photographs and they were the perfect clients!
Thanks so much for welcoming me into your home!
This little beauty was born weighing 5lbs 15.5oz at 15:02pm on 30th April 2013.
Her full name is Eliza Clementine Violet Stemp - how beautiful!?
Her parents, Catherine and Tom are such a lovely couple and they welcomed me into their home like an old friend!
Eliza was so good during the whole session! We barely heard a peep out of her... She slept so peacefully even though we kept moving her into different positions - such a little star! Catherine's mom was visiting from the U.K and it was very special to be able to photograph three generations together!
We had such a great morning capturing their tiny new bundle of joy! xxx
Three Generations - such a special photograph!
Thank you so much for inviting me into your home! I loved spending the morning with you all! xxx
On Sunday morning I took the ferry out to Discovery Bay to photograph The Fossey Family - Lisa, Seb and baby Isla.
I really need to venture out of my little H.K Island bubble more often...It was so lovely to get a bit of fresh ocean air and the journey was only 25minutes! When I arrived, I enjoyed the short walk along the promenade (10mins to be exact!) and I arrived at The Fossey house. What a great location! I am very jealous of their gorgeous, spacious home!
The weather, in typical Hong Kong style, was hot and humid so we decided to do most of the shoot in the cool air-conditioning - an essential part of any H.K home!! :)

Seb and Lisa welcomed beautiful baby Isla just before Christmas - what an amazing gift!! She really is the sweetest little cherub.
They've been in Hong Kong for the past two years but have travelled loads and have also lived in Australia and Dubai. They are such a lovely couple and were so welcoming when I arrived on their doorstep on Sunday morning!
Isla is one lucky lady to have them as parents.
Their home had such gorgeous natural lighting which is always such a treat - I was in my element! :)
Thanks for a great morning...I really enjoyed spending it with you all!
Over the weekend, the lovely Brian Campbell, from Secret Ingredient, celebrated his birthday in quintessential British style - picnic, preppy attire & lawn games. As usual, the food (all from Secret Ingredient) was sublime!
This city never ceases to amaze me...just when I think I've been everywhere, I arrive at a new destination and am completely blown away. Victoria Peak is a popular tourist hot spot and I've done plenty of hikes up to take in the view. I have never been all the way to the top though...The gardens, the view, the lush greenery are all simply amazing! What a perfect spot for a picnic, a glass of bubbles and a game of croquet!
Thanks for an amazing afternoon Brian! xxx
Paddy Galvin is the product of two of my favorite people, Laura & Simon. He is the perfect mix of them both and I just adore him! I cannot believe he is already 9 months old! I love babies at this age...they have the chubbiest little rolls - he is totally irresistable!!
I popped round to see them for a coffee & a catch up and just couldn't resist getting that sweet little man in front of my lens.
Bribery never hurt anyone...did it?! :) It seems these little banana flavored puffs (yum!) did the trick! Paddy will be crawling soon!!
"I eat my peas with honey; I've done it all my life.
Bath time Fun!
A bath is not a bath without a flock of yellow ducks :)
