This baby is long expected so it was a must to get some stunning portraits of my friend Elisa to remember this important moment:) We picked Richmond park as setting, I believe is one of the most beautiful places in London.

The baby is due in November but Elisa was visiting London in August so we decided to do a pre pregnancy portrait session anyway:) It was a lovely Summer day not too hot and deers were walking not far from us…

One of my favourite spot is right in the edge of Pen ponds lake, I felt it could work beautifully having Elisa with this long Summer dress, green yellow and blue exactly matching out background, just perfect!

We don’t know if the baby is a boy or a girl, it’s a surprise! Little Sofia is very excited to have a little sister/brother coming to join their family, we did her pregnancy session in Windsor on a sunny day five years ago now, time flies and now is time to get all set for the second baby, hopefully will be able to fly to France for the new born photos and meeting the new baby:)

My first wedding in Madeira on the 28th of May this year- which was also my 35th birthday – was awesome! I met Miguel and Filipa in Jersey and after a few months they told me that they were going to get married in Madeira, the island where their family are from. At Neverland we do many destination weddings but we’ve never been to Madeira before, I of course accepted honoured and pretty excited about it. I was so lucky I found the best flat with view over the ocean and private pool with the best host ever: Carina’s flat in Canico.

Filipa & Miguel decided to get married in the same church where Filipa’s parents got married 30 years ago, so romantic! Canico Mother Church in right in the main square and looks a typical portuguese church.

Quinta splendida is a bothanical garden overlooking the ocean, anywhere is perfect for taking photos and we found that the food and the stuff was great as well, highly recommended to all our future bride and groom!

I met Miguel and Filipa at the wedding of Esther and Telmo in Jersey two years ago, they got married at the GreenHills Hotel, in July 2014. Both Filipa and Miguel are from Madeira, and so they decided to get married there this year, would I mind going on my birthday?! Of course not! It was fantastic!

It’s always great to do a pre wedding session and then talked through all the details about the wedding day, it helps the couple relax before the day in front of the camera and to get to know each other better. Filipa and Miguel booked their wedding at the stunning Quinta Splendida Hotel in Canico, images to follow…:)

I al always delighted of shooting weddings in jersey, one of my forever favourite location. I used to live in Jersey and still photograph weddings there almost every year. I met Carina and Diogo during a wedding show in St Helier two years ago, and they booked me for their special day this year.

Carina suggested to do out pre-wedding photos in St Catherine’s wood on the north east part of the island, which I had never visited before: what a an excellent choice!  St Catherine’s Woods is one of the largest woodlands in Jersey. It is situated near the north-east coast in the parish of St Martin and there are many trees which are among the oldest in the Island. My lovely couple are not one of those who can pose, but mainly I did reportage shot of the two of them laughing:)

Loved the stepping stones and trees hanging on the river, we went for a walk and talked about the wedding day which was going to be held at the Radisson Blue Waterfront in St Helier after the reception at St Thomas Church in town. We were pretty lucky with the weather on that Friday morning following all the rain on the Thursday when we were supposed to have our engagement photos taken, glad we waited till the next day to have sun coming out just for us!
