Bournemouth Maternity &Newborn Session~Juniper~ Maternity & Newborn Photographer in Bournemouth & the New Forest

I cannot believe it has been over three months ago just a couple of days before the winter solstice ago that I got to meet little Juniper, what an incredibly special session it was and one that I will always remember.

The March Portrait Loop: Artificial Light

The March Portrait Loop: Artificial Light

This month's portrait loop is all about artificial light, and for this I wanted to do something in nature with candles...This past week as the world is going a bit crazy, and feeling increasingly surreal, the forest has been my solace. Mother Nature has brought lightness to where there was heaviness, and peace to where there was anxiousness. My equilibrium has been restored. …

Nature as our temple~New Forest portrait & branding photographer

Sometimes magic happens when you least expect it. We did not plan these images, they just happened in the most beautifully organic way as we spoke about our love for nature, the human body and all the magic we possess. As we passed by a beautiful fallen tree that was covered in the softest of moss creating the perfect place to lay on she became inspired and brave so we decided to create some images right then and there. It was perfect. …

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. …
