This past weekend, I 'dusted' my camera gear and headed to Central London for an outdoor portrait session with Kwasi.

We have been following each other on Twitter during the course of the pandemic and now that things a fairly back to normal, I thought it would be the perfect time to get back to one on one portrait sessions.

Portraits: Kwasi

This past weekend, I ‘dusted’ my camera gear and headed to Central London for an outdoor portrait session with Kwasi.

We have been following each other on Twitter during the course of the pandemic and now that things a fairly back to normal, I thought it would be the perfect time to get back to one on one portrait sessions.

When I put out a call-out on Twitter, Kwasi was kind enough to accept my offer to take his portraits. And it was also a good opportunity to finally meet face to face whilst I re-flexed my outdoor photography taking muscles.

This outdoor portrait session took place in Regents Park and we walked around the beautiful park for like 3-4hrs just chatting and looking for spots to stop and take photographs. Let me tell you, I am out of shape. 🥵

Anyway, I can safely say, that I did a pretty good job seeing that the last time I photographed anyone else other than my family was back in 2019.


P.S. Kwasi is also a very good photographer and he came with his film cameras. This a photo I took using his Seagull 4a. camera with the Rollei RPX 400 film. You can follow him here to check out some of his work.

Daughter and Me

Daughter and Me, 2018

When this photo was taken, I just realised that I couldn’t remember the last time I took a bath with Kena. Let’s just say now that she can talk and notice more stuff 🙈😬😂, the questions were coming in thick and fast.

For me this was one of many moments to feel comfortable in my own skin/body after the changes of giving birth to two adorable minions causes – birthing scars, stretch marks, wobbly/saggy bits, the works. Accepting that no matter what, mummy is still mummy and beautiful. After all, other than daddy ☺️, they never knew/saw me before then, so…

A Little Introduction

I Woke Up Like This, 2019

I rarely put pictures of myself on here, but I thought, why not introduce myself to the few who follow me here. Besides, #Selfies are not my thing, but what the heck, right?

I am a photographer.

I was born in Nairobi, Kenya, but I have lived in the U.K. for most of my adult life. I am married and have two adorable children, a boy and a girl. For the last 7 or so years, I have been studying for a BA & MA in Photography and I also work as a freelance photojournalist covering mostly art, corporate and sporting events.

My passion is photographing portraits as I meet amazing people and I get to know more about them. It also gives me an opportunity to grow as a person.

I also love experimenting with my photography especially working with 35mm, 120 and Instant film.

I recently revived my blog as I wanted to share my experiences/journey as photographer, but it has been a struggle to get the right content going as writing is really not my thing. So, please bear with me as I find my stride.

I’d love to hear from you. Introduce yourself and let’s get this conversation going.

And, if you know someone in the London looking for a photographer to spruce up their social media with pictures, show them this post or you can direct them to my contact form here.

Also, please follow my blog as I post something every Friday.

Comment. Like.
