For Amadea’s 21st birthday all she wanted was to hang out with all her family and friends somewhere awesome (before hitting the town of course!) and Beach Blanket Babylon in Notting Hill was just perfect. The second thing Amadea wanted was documentary-style 21st birthday party photography that captured it all just as it happened, without having to pose for CHEESE! moments all night long, and funnily enough that’s exactly what I adore to shoot for my clients, so I was thrilled to be asked!

And it was a return visit for me, as I photographed a 21st at Beach Blanket Babylon just a few months ago. In fact, that’s how Amadea knew she wanted me to make the photos for her, and I just love working for people who’ve fallen in love with my photos so how could I possibly refuse? Happy Birthday, Amadea!
