“…when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”
I love capturing the connection between a woman and her child, between nature and a toddler experiencing a new world: long swaying grass tickling little legs, rubbing soft, furry, ripe apricot skin against a sun-kissed cheek on a mid-summer’s day, meandering along a path, little hand in hand.
I’m driven and inspired by the simplicity and authenticity of gathering upon a rug, beneath the shade of a tree, sharing a simple baguette and cheese and a cup of coffee. Then wandering together along little paths, exploring and just being, as I capture your togetherness in a natural way.
I want for children to be truly ‘seen’, existing in a light and love-filled family bond. I am drawn to capture palpable emotion, connection, a love for each other that is as effortless and timeless as this simple season of life together.
I want you to be able to see, smell, taste the day you had together, exploring nature with your children. For the baby, in years to come to be able to see the love, pride and vulnerability of her mama, in the way she holds her, carries her in a sling, plays with her and gently leads her hand along a winding path.
I’m here for the dreamers, the believers, the poets, the thinkers. Rumi sits beside my bed and I dance to Spanish guitar and Carla Bruni while I’m cooking dinner with babies hovering at my toes. I’m here to document your life; the beauty, the whimsy, the everyday, to tell a story for you to reflect upon as you pore through photos, hands weathered by the winds of time, nestled, in years to come, alongside your next generation. I’m here for those who appreciate the solace of mushroom foraging in a musty Autumn woodland or a siesta, limbs entangled with your little children, under the dappled light of a huge oak tree.
It’s effortless and gentle. You share some food together, you wander, hug, spot dolphins in the sea, rub sun cream into pudgy arms, collect sticks, seaweed and shells. Whatever feels meaningful and authentic and natural. I simply follow and enjoy your company.
I will provide and style a wholefoods picnic setting for your arrival. This creates a lovely relaxed pace and allows for the togetherness that sharing simple, beautiful food provides.
Nature deeply resonates with me and it provides a beautiful backdrop to portray your togetherness and a natural location for young children to effortlessly explore and play. We collaborate to find a beautiful natural location to suit you. Perhaps you have a meaningful place or we choose from my list of reliable locations.
