I had planned to post this at the beginning of September but life has been somewhat busy with the return to school and lots of branding sessions to prepare for as well as getting Edition 4 of This Detailed Life (my photography magazine) ready to publish!
Better late than never and I'm still getting it out there just before September ends so without further ado, let me introduce the beautiful Ajooni...
Ajooni and her family came down from Essex to meet me at Greenwich Park in London for their shoot. We made sure to capture some of Ajooni's favourite things like cycling and her owl from when she underwent treatment and of course, lots of family fun after what had been a very difficult time for them all! I absolutely love the cheekiness and joy they shared with me at this super fun session in the park!
It's such a pleasure to be able to give this gift to a family who've been through so much. You can read more of Ajooni's story over on the Gold Hope website.
Here's what Ajooni's mum Roop had to say after they received their photos...
"We were so fortunate to be aligned to Bex through Gold Hope . From the moment we first made contact, she made me feel at ease. We didn't want a photographer that would ask us to pose and sit together in a studio. I really wanted naturally captured shots in an open space. We found Bex and she made it all happen. She is a magician, a natural born photographer.
Every single photo we received is incredible, I can't pick a favourite.
She suggested locations for the shoot and put our convenience first as a family when choosing dates for the shoot. She took particular interest in suggesting props, helping us choose outfits and making sure it all comes together perfectly and it did!! She is a thorough professional and a very friendly, calm and happy lady.
I cannot recommend Bex highly enough!! Don't think twice :-) she has to be the one.
God bless you, Bex for putting yourself forward for this charity work. You have helped us make memories. We are so very grateful to you."
It's one of the most rewarding things, being able to do this for families <3
