As a mum of four boys I know that family life is never perfect. I also know just how good our family all feel when …
Here I am sharing five simple tips to create beautiful, natural and fun photos of your family in 2021. With more time at home this year and more quality time with the kids, why not capture your everyday moments and cherish those memories. Here’s a few simple tips to help you.
Embracing outdoor play during lockdown.
The weeks seem to whizz on by and the kids have been enjoying playing in the garden, collecting snails and making Harry Potter wands from sticks.
We have been getting outside as much as possible and the benefits to our health and wellbeing is amazingly positive.
Here’s a little round up of news for you and a few of my favourite nature photos from the past week.
This week I have been “looking for the light” not just whilst out walking with the camera but in the everyday too.
t’s been a tough week and I know we are all experiencing these same emotions. What has hit me though is the impact on my children.
I have been dreaming this week. Dreaming of the day that we are able to get out and visit places once again. So I thought, I’d ask the boys where their favourite family places are. This is what we came up with.
These are a few of our favourite family trips where we love to visit, meet friends, explore and have fun and of course my camera usually comes too. Where are your family favourites? I’d love to hear.
I wanted to share and celebrate with you the wonderful photos that have been captured in the online Connect and Create photography group. This is a space where we have been sharing our nature photos from our daily walks or garden and I have been setting a theme to help guide the photography each day.
It’s a bit of fun and it’s a lovely way to connect with one another and share the different colours out there that nature offers.
At this time I feel that it is important for us to come together as a community and I am inviting you to do this through nature and by embracing this opportunity to slow down for your own health and wellbeing.
Being outside is proven to be beneficial to our health and I would love to encourage you to take some time out each day to connect with nature for you and your family.
Connect and Create is designed to be a safe and welcoming community for women to come together to take time out, slow down and re-connect with themselves, nature and others amongst nature.
Each month we come together at Kingsweston House in Bristol to walk amongst nature, learn how to use photography as a tool to calm the mind, get creative and connect with others whilst we walk and explore.
Throughout the year I collaborate with nature based businesses to bring to you new creative skills and activities to express our individuality and learn how you can live more sustainably in every day life.
Connect and Create sessions are designed to be relaxing, calm and fun. You can read more about the upcoming collaboration with Clementine Moon here.
Why I love capturing family photos in the home.
I love family photos. I love the real life moments that can be captured within the home. For young families it is the perfect way to capture simple honest moments of your family life that your children can recognise and relate to. When you and your children look back at these moments, they not only recognise the moment in time but the feeling and familiarity of being at home. This is your safe space. This is your fun place. This is where you are all uniquely you and this should be celebrated and documented to look back on over time.
