“I would highly recommend Chris , he has a friendly calm manner and put my 2 little girls at ease straight away, as normally they are not too keen at having professional photos done. He is very talented at what he does and has a eye for what turned out to be beautiful photos.”  Claire Vickery


I was delighted when Claire & Gary asked me to take some pictures of their family whilst the autumn leaves were still on the ground and the weather dry. Claire chose an awesome location for us to meet, the Duck Pond next to Hartley Wintney cricket ground in Hampshire.


Now if ever you happen to visit Hartley Wintney Duck Pond, you should be aware that there are in fact TWO Duck Ponds! The one near The Waggon & Horses and the one by the Cricket Pitch. I found this out after standing in the cold for ten minutes by the wrong one! Oops!


The Sunday morning we chose to meet was pretty chilly, a bit misty, damp but perfect for taking pictures. Gary & Claire’s girls are adorable and I loved photographing them. Despite the cold weather we had a great time and captured some lovely images of them all.


I have made Claire & Gary promise that we will do it again in the spring, when the flowers are out and colour is returning to the trees (oh and its a bit warmer!). I have made them promise to bring their dog too!
