‘My Heart & Home’ commercial photo shoot at the Medicine Garden – Part 1

This was one of my favourite shoots of all time! I was very excited when Janne Ford who runs ‘My Heart & Home’ found me through Twitter and commissioned me to do a photo shoot for her vintage-style children’s nightwear & gifts. We chatted on the phone and met before the shoot to discuss the styling, photography style and potential locations. We were both as excited as each other about the images we were going to create to take her business to the next level!


We decided upon the beautiful Medicine Garden as a location for the shoot. It’s a 19th century walled garden in Cobham, Surrey which has been lovingly restored. It’s also where I run my photography workshops, so I’m very familiar with it! It was the perfect backdrop to Janne’s beautiful nightwear and products.


I am going to be sharing the images from the shoot with you in 3 parts as there are just so many I want to show you! We had to make sure that the images weren’t too seasonal as Janne wanted to be able to use them to market her products throughout the year. We used the walls of the Medicine Garden as the backdrop to the first set of images to ensure that they didn’t feel too summery. We had 4 beautiful little models for our shoot who are all absolute stars in the making!¬†

And then this set of images below were styled to have a more autumnal feel….

On Wednesday I will be sharing the images from the gorgeous styled tea party in the garden and then on Friday I’ll post the images from the mini sessions I did with the girls in their own clothes.
