FRONT COVER FOR LUCINDA MILLER’S NEW COOK BOOK

I had such a happy, quite intense, day photographing Lucinda’s gorgeous children and nephews and nieces for her new cookery book. This is potentially the front cover – deemed the winner by our Facebook followers.

Lucinda is a highly respected and sought after naturopath who is in the process of writing a book full of wonderful recipes to help children stay healthy and strong. I arrived with Amanda Jackson Sytner, my lovely make up artist friend, in time to photograph the children having breakfast, and staying until tea had been served.

“CUSTARD” FINDS FAME IN COUNTRY LIFE

Not exactly your usual frontispiece, but this is one of my favourite photos for Country Life.   My great friend and hugely talented make up artist, Amanda Jackson Sytner, and I headed down to the dark depths of Devon on a cold wintery day in early March.    

Publication was set for the end of April, so I’d been briefed to capture the colours of spring. but there was not a flower let alone a bluebell in sight.   Fortunately the yellow derelict digger, aka “Custard”, caught by eye and invited some quirky compositions, and worked particularly well with Freddie’s bright green dress.  The red wellies provided the final touch.

This portrait may not have captured any spring flowers, but the bright colours made a pretty good substitute on this bleak midwinter’s day!
