Little projects




(Photographs taken by my best friend, Hannah)

-I have always loved the look of vintage night dresses and i often scour the charity shops for them to turn them into dresses. A project for me this year is to continue doing this and fill my whole wardrobe with wonderful, unique dresses that i have customised from old night dresses.

- Over the last two years, i did a fairy photo series. I loved having a photo project to get my teeth into and this year i have decided my project will be "hidden parts of nature". Now i have my car, we can explore any place we like and i want to share these hidden places that no one knows is there. My aim is to get deep into forests and explore meadow after meadow to capture these hidden places. I cannot wait to start and share with you all what i find.

-My ebook. I have mentioned this quite a few times already this year and wanted to share a little more information on what you can expect. The ebook will not be a "how to photograph" or a "how to use your camera". I want to share my skills and knowledge of setting up a shoot from an initial idea to the final image. I will be taking the reader through how to tap into their imagination and then how to execute the shoot and get the final finish. I will be sharing my steps to how i come up with a story for my photoshoots and parts of my journals with my notes in and explaining where to go from that initial idea. It is more about exploring your creativity. I am hoping to offer a one to one email advice service too. At the moment, i am trying to explore the best options for me to move forward as a photography business so i am just getting intial ideas down about where to go after the ebook is finished. There might even be workshops on the horizon!!

-Fitness. Since January, i have been trying to be healthy. I have a tendancy to throw myself into workouts and "diets" and then after a few weeks, i have burned myself out so i am doing insanity workouts and just trying to eat a balanced diet rather then eliminate things or cut down on things. I am just making smarter choices but still treating myself if i feel like it and then working out harder. It seems to be a better set up for me. I am starting the gym next week also as it is a 24 hour gym and because of Gilles's crazy work hours, it means i can go more often and have some time out in the evenings if i need to.


Did you see that the MAD awards are now open for nominations?? If anyone is thinking of nominating, i would love for you to consider my little blog for maybe the photography/family fun/craft or home interior categories. I would be most grateful. Thank you in advance if you do nominate my blog. x

  1. Excited to hear more about your ebook! And i'm with you on the fitess thing, I tend to burn out after a while, approaching it differently this time - need to find a gym like that too so I can go when G is home {which isn't very often!}

  2. Diets don't work for me either, I am much more into living a sustainable lifestyle eating healthily most of the time with treats and exercise to balance it out. I'm not a member of a gym but I wish I was this morning as the weather isn't great for running at the moment! As always love your beautiful photographs, good luck in the MADS x
