I fell deeply in love with the ruined orangery at Gibside. The tall brick arches with the overgrown garden within was like something out of The Enchanted Castle – my favourite Edith Nesbit novel.
Of all the things I’ve bought for myself this year, this coffee and cream gingham dress is the one thing that I never want to take off, and it’s easy to see why!
I’m hoping for more magical, sun drenched days so I can break out all the floaty, dreamy sundresses this summer, even if it’s just for a socially distanced walk around the block. In times like these, it’s the little things that breathe meaning into our days.
I’ve been suffering from an awful bout of writer’s block, so for this post I decided to go behind the camera instead of Owen, and asked him to share some Dadly wisdom for father’s day.
This post is all about celebrating the joys of a good outfit – or outfits! – and exploring an unexpected riot of daffodils on a spring evening. Snatching Simple Joys from the belly of a bustling life.
On International Women’s Day, I’ve partnered with Redbubble to bring you a. some joyous images of fat bodies being unabashedly, gloriously celebrated, and b. some thoughts on vulnerability in women’s empowerment.
Today I’m sharing a step by step process for shooting your own self portraits, including my best tip for crystal clear focus.
When you grow up in the tropics, snow is the most impossibly magical thing. As a child I used to pretend that the clattering chunks of early summer hail were soft, whispering snowflakes instead.
When I first tried on this Christy Dawn dress, I immediately decided that it had to be my Christmas dress for this year. It’s so swishy and glam, yet very dress down-able – the perfect holiday dress!
Owen and I have been wanting to do a proper Christmas card photo ever since we’ve been together (7 years this month!)
As November draws to a close, I must reluctantly bid goodbye to autumn. All the leaves have been blown off the trees now but I was just in time to capture them in their final, most striking blaze of glory before the end.
In the autumn of 2018, Owen and I went to Wheelbirks and took some photos in the orchard right at the end of apple picking season. When I see these photos now, all I can think of is how things have changed since Lila.
My school days are long over, but that doesn’t mean I can’t bring you some back to school outfit inspiration in the ‘dark academia’ style I so adore! With a little twist of colour and print of course, thanks to Redbubble.
I’ve been wanting to capture the heather in bloom for years now, but magical as it is, it’s also ephemeral, fleeting. This year we finally caught it at its peak.
Here is something I’d been planning to do for years, and that’s using machine dye to give some of my old, damaged but still very loved clothes a new lease of life.
