I lead a very simple life in Yorkshire looking after my two kids and giddy Beagle. My husband used to be our family photographer, but I stole that role because domestic housewife was a naff title! I love taking pictures that are affectionate, nostalgic and above all, capture ‘just as you are’ moments (direct reference to Bridget Jones!) I’m a sucker for happy endings, but capturing vulnerability whilst embracing my own gives me butterflies! I feel at ease dancing around you with a camera but I’m rhythmically challenged so unless I’ve had a bottle of fizz, I won’t be shaking it in public (thank god!) Last year, I discovered wild swimming which gives me a huge buzz, as does being barefoot, eating a plant based diet and having a bash at growing (or killing) them! We love being outdoors so come May, we’ll pack up our bell tent and thermals, and pick somewhere beautiful to pitch up! On long journeys, I talk my husband’s ear off but he puts up with it because I bring good snacks! When he gifts me loose tea, he’s my favourite person for at least 20 minutes! I’m a typical Aries, full of fire, but really value quiet time away from the noise. I shoot with my heart. That’s probably the main thing you should know.
Having gradually changed the way I live over the last few years, it makes complete sense that my business reflects these eco-values and ethics. Integrity, transparency, and building something that inspires are huge goals of mine, as is diversity and giving back. I want this space to serve a greater purpose than just for myself, by raising awareness of social and environmental issues.
