Lockdown Diaries: Snippets of Our Daily Life

I felt like I hadn’t really picked up the camera much over the past few weeks during the lockdown as I’ve retreated into my own bubble — but looking back and the thousands of files in my hard drive I clearly have. A while back I’ve heard Pete Souza, Barack Obama’s White House photographer, say that often the true meaning or significance of an image doesn’t reveal itself until some time has passed, and I’m embracing that.

Welcome to my London photography + life blog. It’s the place to get to know me a bit better and where I share some of my work, photography advice and tips, my travels, musings about life and parenthood. And books, a lot of books.

Best Family Photos of 2018

I can’t quite believe 2018 is almost over – can you? There was this one meme floating on the internet which I can’t now locate, but it basically went like this: 2018 was like “January, cold, World Cup, heatwave, heatwave, football is coming home, heatwave, December”. That’s definitely how it felt to me.

Photos from People’s Vote March in London

I’ve shared before that this year I’ve been trying to push myself out of my comfort zone of photographing families and started going out to photograph on the streets, including London Pride this year. I’ve also photographed both big People’s Vote rallies that happened in London in March and October of 2018, and through it was about time I shared the images, considering what’s been happening in British politics this month.
