Jane Chapman and Tim Warnes

Spent a great day shooting at the home of Tim Warnes and Jane Chapman who have successfully been writing and illustrating children's books for the last 20 years! They not only are extremely talented but have created a wonderful home in the Dorset countryside which will be featuring soon! Meanwhile check out their amazing websites which are full of fun and inspiration. Jane and Tim, thank you for a truly wonderful day !

Bear has a great, big jar of delicious honey, and he’s NOT in the mood to share! Will Mouse and her team get a pawful without that scary bear seeing them?
One of my daughters favorites.

Now out in 'English Home Magazine' June Issue 2013

English Home Magazine

'A thoroughly English Idyll'

Spent a glorious day with Helle at The Old Rectory B&B taking photos for English Home Magazine which is now out in the shops!   The sun shone all day for us which made it all the more glorious!!  Hele welcomed us into her beautiful home which is now running as a successful Bed and Breakfast and she made us feel totally at ease. 

The Old Rectory B&B, Wiltshire

The house is stunning and we had a great deal of fun all day, putting together pictures.  Hele had already put together some posies of wild flowers and blossoms from around her garden.

How simple and beautiful!

Inspired by the glorious weather Hele created a beautiful backdrop to this kitchen shot, by opening the parasol and dressing the table. Look at that garden view and I love the colour of the parasol which blends beautifully with garden.

These calming pastel greens really work

Hele has collected these pebbles and has transformed them into an interesting artistic feature in the entrance porchway.

A simple but effective artistic creation

Look what I found? My fishes from my blog.

The balmy scent and rich colour from Wisteria in May is heavenly.

         Thank you Helle, for a wonderfully inspiring day and finger crossed for more sunshine!!
