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.
How to shoot your own portrait photos
Today I’m sharing a step by step process for shooting your own self portraits, including my best tip for crystal clear focus.
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.
Dark Academia With a Twist
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.
