I missed the goal…and I will not judge.
After England’s loss last week, I was due to write the weekly newsletter. I’d committed to writing weekly to the community since January 2021 and I couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t write the newsletter. I was tired, deflated and thoughtful.
With a continuing increase of children and adults spending more and more time on social media, a world of false imagery has exploded with people unable to identify what is real beauty and what is highly edited and false imagery.
It is common for people to over edit their photos, alter the background, spend a long time perfecting (in their eyes) an image before then posting this image online.
However, is this image then perceived by the audience as beautiful?
Surely if the image doesn’t truly reflect who you are then there is no “real” connection with the viewer….? What do you think?
I’ve found that a return to busyness has arrived. At first it was with the children’s after school clubs and now with the additional appointments we are all trying to book in along with meeting friends and families for outdoor fun and juggling our work commitments too. Busyness is a funny thing and I generally try to avoid it. However I have been thinking of how I can reframe the term “busyness”?

This week I came across a blossom tree. A tree sparkling in the blue sky and shimmering with beautiful white blossom.

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.
Darren Evans wanted a photographer who could capture each member of his team uniquely, creatively and naturally. As a business focussed on making a positive impact within the construction industry and encouraging others to create a more sustainable built environment, it was important that the images connected with their ideal client and Darren was very clear that he believed that there is more to a person than just a headshot. Darren wanted personality. He wanted his team to feel valued and recognised as individuals and to have each persons passion and unique character shine through. This was the project and I was over the moon to be the photographer chosen to take on the challenge.
For over a year now I have been on a personal journey exploring and discovering sustainable products and eco-friendly products for the home, family and my own personal use. During lockdown I found more time to consider my every purchase and to discover and connect with local sellers making and selling ethical and eco conscious products. Here are a few of my favourite swaps of 2020 so far.

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.
