GILLIS FAMILY: ONE, TWO, THREE

Today we were lucky enough to have an amazing family come to see us at Elstree Photo Studios. Mum Charlotte, dad Avi and bundle-of-cuteness baby Jemima, all came in to brighten up our day for a few hours.

Charlotte was sure to bring in lots of different props and outfits, which is something we really encourage even though we’re well stocked here! Being massive lovers of bunting, which makes any occasion seem like a party, we were happy to use that in the shots too.

Here are a few of our favourite shots from the afternoon, we’re pleased to report that the Gillis family are thrilled with the results. We hope to see them all again soon at Elstree Photo Studios, to document Jemima’s growing years…














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’
