Six-week-old Seth officially became the youngest baby to step through the doors here at Elstree Photo Studios when his mum Nicola brought him in to see us in May, along with both grandmas! It was lovely to be doing photographs of one so young, photographs that his family will keep and cherish forever.

At first he seemed a touch wary of the camera and the lights, but he soon warmed up and gave us a few seconds of beaming smiles to record on camera. He looked adorable wrapped up in a woven blanket, and soon grew into his role as a model! His mum was thrilled with the pictures, a few of which have already been printed beautifully for her. Special thanks must also go to the grandmas for holding toys, waving, cheering and encouraging their gorgeous grandson to look up and smile!

We hope to see Seth again soon, and to really record his growing years here at Elstree Photo Studios.

Blake Ezra

Blake Ezra regularly works on commission for some of the UK’s biggest publications and organisations. His background in informal education brings an ability to work easily with people from all walks of life, bringing out their character in his pictures. Blake Ezra has worked on commission for newspapers such as The Sun and The Financial Times, and organisations including Chessington World of Adventures, Harrods, Lulu Guinness, National Lottery, Playboy, The Chief Rabbi, and World Jewish Relief. He has also recently become one of London’s most sought after wedding photographers through a blend of attention to detail, strength in versatility, ability to capture a moment, and not-yet-certified workaholism. Favourite experience in photography: “I always see photography as a passport to privilege- to situations whereby access is nearly impossible without a camera. There have been many moments in my career so far where I’ve spent time in crazy situations- backstage at concerts, royal weddings and plenty of helicopter-based aerial photography. However, nothing beats seeing the reactions on clients faces when presented with their pictures.” ‘Nothing makes me happier than taking pictures I know my clients will love, I usually work with a beaming smile on my face! I gain massive job-satisfaction when I see my images seen by millions of people in the national press, but equally nothing beats the feeling of creating personal memories for people who will cherish them forever’
