Prom

The amazing thing about Prom is not how it seems to have crept over from America these last few years but how it has been widely accepted and has become a part of our end of high school rituals. This is an event that I highly advocate. I’ve been able to offer portraits this year,…

Leaving you speechless

I love being in a creative community. A lot of the women I have met through my photography are very much empowered and devoted to their skills and craft. I am very grateful to know writers, musicians, artists, graphic designers, bakers, florists and now an amazing glass artisan. Tucked away in the corner of her…

The importance of your existence, in photographs, NOW!

You are here.  If you’re anything like me, you document that. You continuously share images taken on your phone and on any and all social media. It’s evidence. It’s your precious life’s journey. Maybe you focus on your children, your job, this amazing world around you, the food you eat. If you do, I applaud…

There are monsters in the woods…

  There are monsters in the woods. Or so my mother told me… ..Creatures of such fierce nature that they would make you stand and quiver.  But don’t run. Don’t make any sudden moves then you’ll understand a secret. Do you want to know what I uncovered? Do you want to see? Are you brave? I…

Christmas tradition

An almost desperate need to repeat traditions that it is as rampant in the air around me as Wizzard, wishing it could be Christmas every day. But this is not a complaint. I simply adore Christmas with the side trimmings of it’s wacky, family and seasonal…

Colibri

Bespoke, graceful and effortless. Caroline Everett is on a mission to style our little ladies. Sat together at my kitchen table I’m relived at its large size.  Caroline has brought a sumptuous amount of textiles, all tangibly tantalising with rainbow variations of colour and hue. Bold summer flowers, swirling mists of the sea and creatures…

Vintage Flowers

As I walk down Blackfriars street in Hereford I’m actually glad of the small pip’s of rain dotting my shoulders.  I have a bag of goodies loaded on my back that includes my camera, tripod and lights.  It’s not a far walk for me today I’ve cheated and parked around the corner from The Great…

The Philosophy of Cake

Did you know that the word Philosophy literally translates as ‘love of wisdom’. There is certainly a heaped measuring spoon of both of these virtues; in the superior and  delicious cakes that Vic’s Vegan Bakes produces. Despite her young age (only 20!!) Vic has taken her two most passionate, essential beliefs to create cakes that…

The Great British Florist

This weekend I was in Hereford city centre to meet Alex, client manager for The Great British Florist. I had been invited to document one of their many training courses. An experience that did not disappoint. With one step over the threshold to the premises  my senses were immediately sent into a botanical vibrancy. I…
