Documenting The Details

I follow a LOT of photographers online.  I find it inspiring seeing such an incredible amount of variety in people’s work and art, and I frequently find myself gathering new ideas for different perspectives to try; alternative ways to photograph something; and simple tips, suggestions and ‘how to’ techniques with regards to the more technical…

Little Loves: June 2019

June seems to have passed by quite quickly and I’m not entirely sure how we’re halfway through the year already.  I said that to someone the other day and their response was to cheerfully let me know that “it’ll be Christmas before we know it!”.  Um, no.  Just, no. In contrast to the last four…

Little Loves: May 2019

May felt like a total whirlwind of a month.  We got home from our annual Easter trip to Cornwall at the end of April and exactly one month later we jetted off to Boston for May half term!  The girls had precisely sixteen days of actual school (plus weekends in between) and during that time…

She was an incredible character in so many different ways.  She out-lived two of her four children and leaves behind her a legacy of eight grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.  Family was everything to…

Little Loves: March 2019

March has been an interesting month.  It has felt pretty full-on, intense, and, if I’m honest, rather stressful at times.  I’m going to be quite glad to see the back of it. We still have no kitchen following the fire we had last month, although thankfully things are starting to move forwards now and we…

Dad: 4 Years {Opening The Cardboard Box}

February is over, we’re almost halfway through March and I feel like I can breathe again.  I hadn’t realised I was holding my breath.  But I must have been because suddenly there’s a little bit less of a squeezing feeling in my chest. Last month marked four years since my Dad died, suddenly and unexpectedly,…
