Beautiful Smiley Dot at Petersham Nurseries, Richmond London

We'd planned on setting this family photoshoot against the rugged backdrop of Richmond Park in London but the British weather had other plans this morning so we headed down to Petersham Nurseries for what turned out to be a beautiful session with the sweetest little girl. As Dotty's parents, Emma and Mark drank tea in the greenhouse, I captured them being playful with their daughter and giggling away. Dotty had severe reflux as a baby and still suffers from the side effects of this often unspoken about condition. Even at 14 months she has difficulty sitting upright unaided for long periods and needs to be fed soft food to help her digest it. Emma started a wonderful and eye opening blog to share her story and reach other parents going through a similar experience. I feel really honoured I was able to capture them all together in such a natural and unobtrusive way in such a beautiful environment.
