    20 things you probably don’t know about me

    Anyone that knows me knows I’m a fairly introverted soul. Here are 20 things about me that I didn’t put on my about me page. 20 things you probably don’t know about me I’m a plant Mama to many plants, but I’ve had to strip them back recently.

    Letting your kids fail

    The hidden truth behind mistakes Since the only place where we can truly live our lives is in this moment, perhaps mistakes are actually a gift. Maybe they even arrive to wake us up. They startle us enough to bring us into the now. The Dalai Lama says, “A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals the secret…

  • Beautiful Girl ballet dancer by London Photographer

    Portrait of a ballet dancer

    My daughter stopped ballet a few years back because she loved to tap dance much more and ballet just wasn’t for her.  After 13 years of ballet, she proved herself to be a graceful, strong ballet dancer.

    Momentum: Black Lives Matter

    Here is a post I shared on Instagram yesterday about Momentum. I hope you’ll take some time to read it. Are you tired of it all? I’m tired of years of living and breathing it too.

  • Who here has lost count of the weeks?

    Who here has lost count of the weeks? For me, this is my daily. I don’t know when things will improve and what will be the next step. I know they will. And I’m good with that. Sometimes I forget that it really doesn’t matter where we are. Quarantine or not, ‘here’ is just fine. But what about you? What’s going on for you? I’ve spent the last couple of…

    Silver Linings

    Business is quiet. With being a hands-on photographer, I can’t take any risks, so everything is paused for now. Yes, I’m pretty sad about missing your moments. But I really am looking forward to meeting those families, babies and children I’ve missed out on doing recently. All bookings for March, April and May are now moving into the Summer/Autumn. Additional reservations are coming in, and I’m grateful. Still, of course,…

    Minimalism and Slow Living

    Is anyone here into minimalism and slow living? I’d love to hear how it works or has worked for you/ your family. What is Minimalism? Minimalism is about removing distractions to enable you to find more freedom to live a more intentional life. A life of value. I became interested in it just over a year or so ago. This was when I discovered people like Joshua Becker, Ryan and…

    What does family mean to you? For me it’s meaningful connections and relationships with people whom I love, trust and are thankful for in my life. For me, it’s more than just blood family but my friends too. What is it for you? In my family sessions I document and tell your story. I will weave my way into you family for a few hours to tell your story as…
