It’s been three years!

I knew the anniversary was coming. A date that shook our world. And there it was on my Facebook memories, April's prolonged febrile seizure, 3 years ago today. There was a time that I thought this date would be ingrained in my mind, a anniversary ...

Summer Holiday Fun (that won’t break the bank!)

Are you feeling the strain of the school holidays yet? We're a couple of weeks in now. My social media feeds are full of frazzled parents reaching for the wine! Right there with you with my glass of Malibu in hand! So many articles and posts about...

Being interviewed by a journalist.

What was it like? Why did I say yes to the interview?   A couple of weeks ago you may have seen that my breastfeeding journey hit the UK media online. It has been shared by the likes of Tamara Ecclestone on Instagram and I've been contact...

Time to stop apologising?

  Why do we (particularly women) apologise so often for being ourselves? Or for our lives in general? Sorry is a word to use when you've done something wrong or hurt someone's feelings. Why say sorry about being yourself? And I know I'...

Embrace – Learning to love our bodies

Last year I finally started something that I've been thinking about for years. I've photographed many mothers over the years, with their children and families plus the occasional head shot. I had a vision to create a safe place for women to come t...

Baby Loss and Rainbow Babies

Today (20th March) is one of those dates etched in my mind forever. I have to admit my memory isn't particularly brilliant when it comes to dates but some simply never leave you. Birth dates of your babies and special anniversaries, they stick as ...

Christmas gift ideas for Mums

Firstly let me tell you, I LOVE supporting fellow work at home Mums. It takes a lot to juggle life at the best of times but add working and running your own business, wow it's tiring! Nonetheless it's amazingly empowering and of course we experien...

Making time to capture the everyday moments

Yesterday I grabbed my camera for ten minutes to capture April at home. It's surprising how rarely I do this! As we near the end of our time in this house I'm suddenly hit but emotion, for this house was the place we brought our little girl home t...

So much love for The Kindness Elves – A new Christm...

  Would you like to start a new Christmas tradition with your family? It's always lovely to recreate the traditions you had as a child for your own children but new ones are just as important. Last year I wanted to introduce something n...

Fancy taking some cool sparkler photos?

So Guy Fawkes is upon us. A weekend filled with fireworks displays, the smell of bonfires in the air, toasted marshmallows and wrapping up warm with loved ones in the dark! If you're not off to a display, or even if you are then I'm sure many of y...

A little note to my younger self as a first time Mum

  Dear Sarah, Oh my younger self you are so amazing. You've already been through baby loss and given birth to our beautiful boy at home. You are stronger than you know, I wish you could realise that. I want to give you a really impo...

Don’t be afraid of that competition, embrace it!

Easier said than done perhaps? The thing to remember is that your business type is not unique, you are not the only photographer, cake maker, clothes maker, designer etc in your town. What you must remember instead is that YOU are the unique p...

Family fun at the beach

I met this family last year for some autumnal fun in Chelmsford. Oh how I love this location, it brings back many childhood memories for me! She is a little sweetheart and even had some photographs including her little boyfriend, seriously cut...

The other half of my parenting team…

I talk of Motherhood and all it means to me often. Being a Mum has been my life for the last 7.5years so of course it's never far from my thoughts, in fact I'm pretty certain it's a part of all my thoughts the majority of the time! As the years ha...

A beach adventure

You know me, I LOVE the beach! Family photo shoots at the beach are always full of so much fun, it's a place that we all love to be. This summer I've spent most weekends there and I've had the most amazing time. This shoot was a little different f...

Why I LOVE Autumn!

I think we all have our favourite seasons. For the weather, for the events it brings, for the clothes we wear and the places we like to visit. My absolute favourite day would be a sunny, crisp day in autumn. A little chilly but wrapped up in a cos...

Goodbye Summer!

This Summer has been amazing! I've visited the beach nearly every weekend, played in long wavy grass and had fun in the most beautiful purple flowers. Mostly though I've enjoyed watching and capturing families just simply being together, the conne...

Running a business when you’re a Mum

So what's it really like running your own business and being a Mum? Oh how I'd love to tell you it's all sunshine and roses! It's not always as easy as it seems. Truth is it's bloody hard work! If you're a Mum (pretty likely if you follow my p...

Mothers, I see you!

Have you seen the way your little one looks at you? I have. Have you noticed how they are so happy to have you near, at ease to truly be themselves? I have. I watch you beautiful Mama, I see you. You are barely there in your family photographs, he...

We found a Grasshopper!

Quick Mummy get your camera! The other day during one of our many days spent between our lounge and garden, Luke discovered a grasshopper on the trampoline! Then came three little (hmmm not so little!) squeals of delight all wanting a turn of h...
