One Year With You~ Artifact Motherhood~New Forest Family Photographer

One Year With You~ Artifact Motherhood~New Forest Family Photographer

One year. You turning one has made me so emotional and so reflective. This past year I have felt every emotion under the sun and moon. This time a year ago we were still in that hazy otherworldly phase of postpartum deliciousness adjusting from a family of three to a family of four. I still remember how I felt when I held you and your sister in my arms together for the first time, it was like the floodgates of a sea of love came pouring out with such intensity, …

Baby Niyah~Southampton, Hampshire Newborn Photography

A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of spending a lazy sunday morning with Casey, Josh and their sweet baby girl Niyah in Southampton before they headed off in their converted horse trailer travelling the country attending festivals. The love and connection they shared was palpable. I love seeing a woman come into her new role as a mumma so effortlessly and naturally. …

A Day in My Life: Year One

A Day in My Life: Year One

On February 13, 2019 just over 13 months after the my first day of shooting I completed my first Project 52/A Day In My Life/Year One. There's a real satisfaction I feel from having stuck with it. I know the sadness of not being able to have access to these early memories, my mother has Alzheimer's and she has no memories of my childhood and through her I have been reminded how important our memories truly are but also how fragile they can be and that is the biggest reason for why I decided to do this project: so that my own children will always have access to these early memories of their lives. …

Meeting Baby Franklin~Lymington, New Forest, Newborn Photography

I wanted to share a mini session I did towards the end of last autumn where I had the honours of meeting the beautiful baby Franklin, just two weeks old. If I could photograph newborns everyday of my life I would be so happy! I love capturing all the little moments that take place with the arrival of a new baby, I love seeing the interactions between siblings and witnessing the ever expanding love in mom and dad's face. …

The Travelling Mustard dress

The Travelling Mustard dress

I am so excited to be a part of a really wonderful and fun collaboration with 44 other British artists and one mustard dress. Being 35 weeks pregnant, I had already decided that I was going to use this as an opportunity to create some pregnancy self-portraits, and living in the New Forest I wanted to create them using both the water and earth elements as the sea & the forest are truly my tonic, the places I go to heal or soothe my mind, body and spirit and they are also the places where I just feel the most at home... …
