“Photography is a way of feeling, touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything”

I'M AN ADVENTURER, WIFE, MOTHER, SELF-CONFESSED SUGAR ADDICT AND SAYYESMORE AMBASSADOR
I’ve been incredibly lucky to experience some of the most jaw-dropping places on Earth. I’ve watched the sun set on Mount Everest, the Milky Way in the middle of the ocean and the morning sun turn the Alpine mountains into a white sea of diamonds. I’ve jumped off turquoise waterfalls in the Grand Canyon and my adventurous spirit is always looking for new challenges and explorations.
But as much as the wonders of our big blue planet feed my soul, the smaller pleasures closer to home bring simpler, but just as special, meaning. A snuggle on the sofa with my kids (though it needs bribery these days), a really good bar of chocolate or the pure indulgence of a back scratch.
When I'm not photographing, I'm an ambassador for SayYesMore, ski as often as I can and run through the woods with my four-legged friend.
I'M THRILLED TO BE AN AMBASSADOR FOR SAYYESMORE
"So what IS this SayYesMore thing anyway?"
It means different things to different people, but the interpretation that makes most sense to me is that it's a message to encourage us all to make positive life choices and challenge ourselves, using social media to bring people together in the real world, all with the backdrop of the great outdoors.
Pioneered by the trailblazer and adventurer that is Dave Cornthwaite, the YesTribe is a social enterprise that has grown from a loyal band of Facebook followers into a now global not-for-profit community dedicated to nudging people into finding out what they're really capable of.
We create events, spaces and situations that help people, ideas and mindsets blossom. Whether it's supporting brave decisions, encouraging adventurous thinking, finding (or creating) work that we love or simply designing a lifestyle that fits perfectly with our individual personalities and needs, we figure that if we look after ourselves and those around us and don't forget to have fun along the way, the world will be a much better place.
The SayYesMore ambassadors are a wonderfully driven, infectiously enthusiastic bunch of humans all undertaking and overcoming challenges of their own. I firmly encourage you to find out more about them, how SayYesMore has influenced them, and what it can do for you too. Use the social links on the left to follow.
Breast Cancer Portraits
I run a charitable venture offering sensitive portraiture to women affected by breast cancer, aiming to help restore confidence and self-esteem for ladies who have been affected physically and emotionally at a time in their lives when they feel at their most vulnerable. Having been through it myself, I am all too aware how the often disfiguring treatment can erode our feelings of femininity, desirability and self-worth and I get immense joy at helping these women back on the road to emotional recovery through beautiful intimate portraiture. For more information, please get in touch or see the Breast Cancer Portraits page.
