  • Project 365: Week 2 (a week of illness)

  • So this week our house has been full of illness and trying to take a photo a day has been a bit of a challenge. I most definitely haven't been feeling creative and picking up my camera has been hard. But I did it... (I'm giving myself a little cheer because when you're feeling rubbish you really do [...]
  • Happy Families

  • It's been a long time since all my brothers and sister have been under the same roof - but today we all gathered at mum's house. We had lots to celebrate - Isaac and Jim's birthday and then the wonderful surprise of Isaac and Tash's engagement. Here's some of the photographs which I hope capture [...]
  • Project 365 (well 366) begins

  • So a new year has begun...happy 2016 to you. I've decided to challenge myself this year and take part in Project 365 - which is where you take one photo a day for a whole year (technically this year it's Project 366 because it's a leap year). I'm trying to push myself and experiment with new i[...]
  • New Exhibition

  • This week has been a big one - I’ve put up my first ever exhibition! I was so thrilled to have been asked by Paul to share some of my work but as the date got closer the nerves and self doubt started to creep in… am I good enough? Will people like my work? I took a deep breath and thought sod [...]
  • Tutus and Tiptoes

  • "To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak..." {Hopi Indian saying} I was asked to photograph some classes at Cumbria Dance. Here's just a very small selection from the pre-school classes. Oh to be able to wear a tutu again..... Nell x [...]
  • Park Life

  • I love to close my eyes, turn my face to the sun and feel the warmth and light on my eyelids… such a simple movement which brings such a feeling of wellbeing. We never know how long the sunny days will last so we’ve been making the most of them. We had breakfast in the garden (with dew on the gra[...]
  • Perfectly Imperfect

  • Our family is perfectly imperfect or possibly imperfectly perfect… from the outside it may seem complicated… but from the inside it’s simple. Here’s the aunties playing with their niece and nephew...(there was quite a bit of pretending to be animals - I'm sure you'll spot the tigers and elephant![...]
  • Miss-matched pjs and unbrushed hair

  • The girls were delighted that their London cousins made an unexpected, but extremely welcome, visit to Cumbria this weekend. They haven’t seen each other since the summer but within a few minutes it’s like it was yesterday. I thought I’d photograph a few moments from their morning together. There[...]
  • Nothing is ever black and white...

  • ... apart from for me, at the moment! I have a confession...I have an obsession that I need to share. I’m in love with taking black and white photos. I’m in love with the different moods that can be created, I’m in love with how images automatically feel timeless and nostalgic and I’m in love [...]
  • A letter to me

  • It's interesting how something becomes a tradition… how many times do we need to repeat something for it to become one? There’s no better time of year for them. They are everywhere. For our family the one tradition I love is reading ’Twas the Night Before Christmas every Christmas Eve (my mum sta[...]
