Preparing for a new arrival

Every few months I take a trip back home to Guernsey, where I grew up. It's always a great opportunity to catch up with friends and family and for a few days swap the London smog for the fresh Channel Island sea air. This time round, I was lucky enough to catch up and photograph Clare who is just weeks away from welcoming baby number three.  She's relaxed, excited and even managing to squeeze in the odd trip to the gym! 

Clare and her family live in a beautiful townhouse, opposite a park and just on the outskirts of St Peter Port.  The kitchen really is the heart of this home,  proudly displaying photographs, drawings and paintings of and by children Amelie and Arthur and  I wanted to capture Clare in the heart of this room.

I remember feeling quite nervous at this stage in my pregnancy but Clare is just blooming and excited to find out if it will be a boy or girl joining the family and taking it from four to five. Not long now!
