A series of portraits of the author and journalist Sasha Swire, for the book launch of her political memoir, Diary Of An MP’s Wife published by Little Brown Book Group.
We had lots of fun with the photos and even had a little help from Sir Hugo Swire – AKA the husband, to catch a few chickens for the shots outside, which wasn’t an easy task! Those cheeky hens just didn’t want to be in any of the pictures. Luckily the rest of the shoot was a breeze and Sasha is very easy to photograph, she had a clear idea of what she was looking for the launch of her sensational diaries. The different locations are relevant to different aspects within the diary…but to find out which you will have to purchase this tantalising read. I tell no secrets!
The location is stunning and it helps that they live in the most glorious old country pile with expansive cottage gardens, cosmos bursting from everywhere and rustic barns aplenty. The late afternoon shoot was bathed in beautiful soft September light, my favourite light to work in and lent itself really well to the country life look in the photos.
