Waverley Abbey has been a place I’d heard of many times but never got a chance to visit.

This photoshoot was very special – the family was visiting over from Washington, DC, and wanted to capture some special photographs of the kids having brilliant time here in London. Because they visit London frequently, they didn’t really want to have typical landmarks in the background, and instead opted for some relaxed family portraits in the private gardens of the Cadogan Gardens Hotel where they were staying.Read More
