Sturmfrei: August blog circle

Our word-of-the-month, sturmfrei is German – literally ‘storm-free’; being able to do as you please. Think Home Alone; having the run of the place, completely by yourself; not having to answer to anyone (especially your elders), or to suffer their disapproval! So, we thought as a blog circle, sturmfrei is a great one for holiday-time…

Scotland North Coast 500 road trip

Scotland’s North Coast 500 route begins and ends in Inverness, and takes you round the Scottish coastal road at the very northernmost tip of mainland Britain. I have so much more to say about this, but that’s for another blog post or two. For now, I’m just going to post a selection of photographs to give…

It’s a really special, supportive network of female photographers; lovely to work alongside my mates, and to be…

Komorebi: July blog circle

Komorebi (koh-moh-reh-bee) 木漏れ日 A beautiful Japanese word meaning “the effect of sunlight streaming through the leaves of trees”. It’s a beauty of the everyday in this season, with leaves needed on the trees to give the right effect. It’s evocative of the fresh, bright, long days of spring and summer; this was supposed to be an…

Heirloom photograph albums

It is always a thrill, as a photographer, to see the pictures that you’ve captured turned into printed pages. You don’t need me to tell you that photographs are such an incredibly important record for us, as well as future generations. For this reason, I’m particularly choosy when it comes to printing labs – I…

Faodail: June blog circle

Back to this month’s blog circle and our word for June, which is Gaelic: Faodail (n) (fay-uh-day-l) a lucky find. It might refer to a found object but I’m also interpreting this as stumbling across situations and places that I hadn’t planned or known about in advance, but which felt like I was lucky to witness. My…

Natural family portraits Surrey

Every so often there will be a family who are so at ease with each other, and with being themselves, that it’s a total joy to document their real life at home. Everything just as it is, at that moment in time. I know that even in the months since we took these pictures, things…
