I was 6 years old at my first carnival. The excitement of loud music, elaborate costumes and the waft of Caribbean food in the air.

Notting Hill Carnival Behind the Lens

Documents people on the streets during Notting Hill Carnival


His name truly deserves to be uppercase. Starting out in photography can be a lonely business. And if you ever saw how many different Photography related Facebook groups I’m in, you’d probably laugh awkwardly or judge me just a little.

A fun fact for you: my Dad used to be a photographer too. We took some headshots of each other last weekend and it made me realise: in hindsight and very subtly, I’m sure he is where my photography journey began. It sounds obvious, but I say subtly because I didn’t fall in love with […]

A Mini Collab with Mini Manes – 60 Years of Black Hair


Revamping a 23 year old Dollshouse for my two year old I knew that with my little lady turning 2 this year, I didn’t want to do the big birthday party like last year. So I was determined to make sure at least one of her gifts from me was sentimental and something she’d never […]

Renovating my Childhood Doll’s House


Reflecting on one year of being a Mum I type this is as you lay asleep. It’s gone 10pm, I have a cuppa to my side and a warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach. I will save this blog post for you to read when you’re older, but for now, I finally have a moment […]

A Blog to my One Year Old
