Bump Shoot with the lovely Amy + 1!

One of my oldest and loveliest friends is expecting a baby next month and I absolutely jumped at the chance to photograph this wonderful point in her life. Amy lives in this beautiful little one room hut at the bottom of a garden, and I love that we chose there as a starting point for the photographs. 'Place' is very important to me in my images, giving context and strengthening the emotional connection you have to them in years to come gives them such extra value and depth. Although some things might not seem 'picture perfect' - your favourite chipped mug, a worn hand-me-down blanket, some muddy wellies - they're all things that show your past and make up another element to your life. I'll be following this post with some lovely snaps of her and her fella that we took in the afternoon!
