    Hi Matthew, Julie and Hannah, Absolutely love this picture of Hannah, she is growing so fast….. look forward to seeing you all next month. xx

It has been an incredibly busy week at work for me, so the hour and a half grabbed on Tuesday evening to photograph Caroline was particularly welcome! Caroline is a painter, mainly specialising in powerfully vibrant and textured landscapes.
