Celia the explorer. A family photoshoot at Chiswick House and Gardens

Working with two year olds can be challenging - I've been a mother to one and I know how busy they can be -  always on the move and often wanted to go it, and do it, their way. But I like a challenge - and I love to capture that mischief and playfulness along with a child's innocence.

Celia was the busiest toddler I've ever photographed - she was on the move all the time at their family photoshoot at Chiswick House and Gardens in West London. She loved exploring the world around her and was oblivious to me and my camera. And in all honesty, that didn't matter, in fact it was better that way. I really think her beautiful spirit comes through in this shoot and the excitement that was bubbling in this family, as they await the arrival of another baby in a couple of months time. I can't wait to meet them all again in July and capture the magic they make as a fabulous foursome.
