I’ve been doing quite a bit of charity work recently, but this particular job is one I am glad Sobell House kindly allowed me to make public.
A few years ago, my mother-in-law spent her last few days of life surrounded by the love and care of close family members, and the nurses/carers of Sobell House. Then just a few months ago, my father-in-law did the same. Without doubt, we all felt their ends-of-life were made extra special by the stunning surroundings of the Sobell House rooms, and by the attention and support of its workers. It never once felt like a sad place, or even a hospice – infact we took with us on every visit our toddler and baby, who were always comfortable and happy (ok, the nurses took a bit of a shine to them!).
I’m enjoying doing what I can for Sobell House, whether it’s photographing charity events, or photographing vibrant, welcoming new portraits (for both staff and patients). I am including below the outdoor portraits I took for 3 super-lovely nurses.
Please do check them out, and if at all possible, consider helping them out (they arrange charity walks, events, fairs, and more).
A special thank you and mention to Dominique and Rochelle, without whom this shoot wouldn’t be possible.
