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...

Two years on, time to start healing

August is a month full of fun in our house, lots of family birthdays including mine! No school, lots of time spent in the garden with the odd pj day thrown in. Yet 2 years ago our lives were turned upside-down and I feared we'd never feel happines...

More than a Mum, Wife and Photographer

Late night contemplation, it keeps me awake so often! I'm the definition of a night owl, all my best ideas and thoughts come way past 11pm. Obviously the house is much quieter at this time but it's always been the same way for me, even before tiny...
Life with endometriosis

Life with endometriosis

  I don't often talk about this and it's likely you didn't know I have it. Possibly you've never heard of it! Yet so many women have it to varying degrees, many women don't know they have it.  I'm generally a positive person, I love to bu...

Mum's it's time to get in the frame with your children! Family photography doesn't just mean your children, it includes you, you are so important. Our bodies have changed, our faces bare the dark circles of sleepless nights and wrinkles are starti...

Becoming a Mummy

"I want to call him Archie!" These are the words I shouted to the midwife standing in my hallway as she handed notes over to the team of paramedics. My son was going to hospital without me.   This week marks 7 years since I became a Mum...

Why I carry my toddler {Babywearing Photographer Colchester}

I guess the first reason why is because I want to, but that'd be a pretty boring and short read wouldn't it?! Toddler wearing or carrying a toddler in a sling/carrier is not for everyone just as natural term breastfeeding isn't but that's complete...

Christmas now you have children

Before there were children life was a little different at Christmas. It mostly involved alcoholic drinks, lots of rich food, evenings with family playing games, trips out to the cinema and generally doing whatever we fancied! As you get older h...

Getting the balance right – when you’re a sel...

  So I got it a bit wrong...   During the summer I smugly thought to myself "Yeah I've got this work life balance cracked." How wrong I was. Sometimes it takes stopping and reflection to make you realise that actually you were wro...

When your children come to work…

Today I took my family along to Chelmer Park in Chelmsford so that they could have a play with Daddy whilst I worked. Now often the children of photographers tire of having a camera pointing in their direction, our constant models! Today though th...

What a perfect Sunday. Lazy cuddles, films, a roast dinner - absolutely no work or homework for us today! I reminded myself that I really want to start capturing more of the mundane, more of the mess and our real lives. It's such an important thin...
