I love the film “True Romance” – there’s a line early on something like “thanks for being such a sweetheart, ‘cos you could have been a real ****”
I love these images, yet as I arrived on a damp and really dreary morning Imogen had a bit of a medical scare. Instead of postponing she wanted to carry on – something that afterwards I thought spoke volumes as I got to know her and her husband – I thought were both such lovely people. Oscar wasn’t having a sleepy or happy day – again probably not what they would have wanted beforehand – but I say it all the time – when you have to try and comfort your baby, you do forget about the camera a bit and it can be that I start to capture those real feelings, some real moments and some tenderness.
Photography requires a few things to “align” – sometimes the things you think might be necessary, simply aren’t.
