Gingerlillytea photography




















Today, i wanted to talk a little about myself. As well as being a mother and a wife, i have my own photography business. At the moment, i have put it on hold until the girls are a bit bigger so i can spend all my time with them. It is still such a huge part of me though and i do love to come back to it every now and then. I am still photographing personal projects. I love to be creative and i still need to have that where i not forgetting myself and what i love whilst still trying to bring the girls up the best way i can. It is a struggle and some days i really want to throw myself back into photography and book clients but i struggle a lot with guilt and i know that i have years to do my own work. The girls are only going to be this small once and i need to be selfless now and dedicate everything i can to them. 

I am so lucky that i have had many magazine features of my work and i even bought a book out on blurb with some of my work in. I have an etsy shop and a society 6 shop also. My work is quite unique. I am a dreamer with a huge imagination and i like to channel that childhood innocence in my work and draw on childhood memories to bring out in my photographs. I do a lot of self portraits using a tripod and remote.

I love looking back through my work and remember what memories and ideas i drew upon to create certain pieces. I have note books full of ideas that eventually i will get around to doing. I actually started this blog as a way to showcase my work and then i decided to change it into more of a personal, family style blog. I talk about the girls a lot on my blog and i don't really share too much about myself, so today, i wanted to share this part of me. I hope you like the photographs and i can promise that by the end of summer, there will be more photostories for me to share with you.

  3. I just love your photos. You make me want to go running through a field barefoot with flowers in my hair and wings on my back. I studied theatre wit modules in photography and film at uni, and just think your photos really speak and tell a story in such a beautiful way.
    And when my girl is a big bigger I'm definitely going to get you to take some photos of my little fairy, in fact I might even get in on the action and be a fairy with her!!! ;) X

    1. This comment made me smile. I think i should do a little shoot with you as a fairy. I did a fairy shoot in a meadow one evening with my fairy wings. I walked all the way there and when i got there, there were two men just sitting right by where i wanted to shoot. I panicked a little and didn't know what to do but then thought, i walked all the way there so i was going to do my shoot. I put on my fairy wings, set up my tripod and just flounced around ;) they must have thought i was crazy but i got my shots and i gave them a giggle, i am sure! x

    2. Awww, I would love to flounce around like a fairy. I could even get my pointe shoes on and do a bit of crazy outdoor ballet.... with wings.... and flowers in my hair. I can see it already!
      I love the idea of you giving two men a giggle by running around in a meadow taking photos while they just sat there. The stuff we do for our art hey? I ran around the town centre in a princess dress for a performance piece once at uni, people thought I was crackers but it was really liberating. x
