Lila Rose Harris (part deux)

Posted in Friends & family, Personal work, Portraits by Mike on July 9, 2009



Last weekend Claire and I were given the honour of becoming ‘Odd Parents’ to Lila, Jen & Simon’s gorgeous baby daughter. We were so chuffed to have been asked and, along with Jenny Stilts, made a commitment to Lila to help her Mum & Dad support and guide her.

Job no. 1 – buy her the Liverpool kit.

We’d spent the weekend with Jen & Si a few weeks earlier on Shoreham beach, where the above frame was captured.  Isn’t she cute!   The term Odd parent is no joke either – during the lovely but unusual humanist naming ceremony, we either got called Odd Parents or Mentors – Simon said he felt ODD Parents suited us better, cheeky b*******!  (I’m sure we’ll find a way to get…EVEN?) (anyone – please – I need help.)

In other news, if you noticed my email server outage post, you may be forgiven for claiming I undercooked the scope of my downtime prediction somewhat – in fact, went down for a few days because I decided to change my hosting provider (to BlueHost, who’ve been unbelievably great throughout).  The reason behind this dreadfully dull technical shenanigan is that there’s a new blog on the way and, frankly, it’s a spanker.  Should be live in the next few weeks.  Word on the street?… hot pink!

Next up though will be some shots from a shoot I did for the Hawthorne family recently, but I’ve not quite finished them as the deck is awash with work at the mo.  Watch this space.  Shouldn’t be more than a few days at most.

Thanks for stopping by!
