Introducing #MummyFriday – a support network

It’s taken me a long while to get my head around what it means to be a mum for me. When I was pregnant and in that first year of parenthood, I wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share on social and here on the blog. Although I’d share the odd post here and there, I felt like it was more important for me to focus on taking everything in in “real life” and concentrating on what it all actually meant. Plus figuring it all out!

Our little one didn’t sleep through till about 14 months old and even now at 18 months, she doesn’t do a full night without ending up in our bed.

I don’t always remember to do these throwbacks, but it’s nice sometimes to reflect isn’t it? So I’m jumping on the throwback Thursday bandwagon and sharing some images from the past…

In this digital age, where we all take photos on our phones and upload them to Facebook, we don’t always look back do we? We don’t have photo-albums to pull off the shelf and flick through, in the way we used to (well I actually have made a point of printing photos of our little girl now and making proper real albums out of them!) and holding a real photo, something tangible, seems quite rare.

So throwback Thursday is a nice reminder to actually sift through all those photos on your computer and pull out some of your faves. So that’s what I’m doing today…Continue reading

Lifestyle Maternity Photoshoot Peak District

I am so excited to finally be kick-starting a new series on my blog – Lifestyle Photography. This series will be a collection of lifestyle photoshoots, including: maternity (or bump) shoots, newborn shoots and family shoots. Why? Because I love photography and I love the informality and honesty of a lifestyle photoshoot. I like looking at ordinary people, living their lives and capturing special memories on camera. I hope you do too.

I’m honoured to be able to share photoshoots from other couples and families…a sneak peak into their lives for a moment. Eek! Here we go…Continue reading
