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.
