With a fresh look, and a new life! Well, not so much a new life, but a lot is changing at the moment. Firstly, we are no longer living in China. We found out in February that we are expecting a little babe in late October, so we made some plans to get ourselves a bit more settled. Although we loved our life in China and our Xiamen family that live there, we didn’t see ourselves having a baby there. We’ve always wanted to be closer to family, and after almost 9 years together we decided it’s time to make that transition and move to the UK.

This also means starting again with my business. It all feels a bit daunting. An unfamiliar place, with an unfamiliar culture, and hoping my work and my style will fit in with it all. In addition to making England my home, I’m also working to carve a place for my wedding and boudoir photography, and sometimes when I think about doing all this stuff at once (not to mention growing a baby), it makes me want to cry/hide/nap/run away from it all. But there’s also a huge part of it that excites me. Driving through the countryside, or stumbling into little English villages, I find a lot of inspiration, good energies, gorgeous light, and places I want to photograph.

In light of all these new changes, I decided my online presence needed a bit of a refresh as well. I’ve been working A LOT the past few weeks on giving my blog a new look, and am now in the process of building a new website. I want a simple and clean look for both, a minimalist approach really. I’m finding more in more in work, and in life, I want my spaces to be free from distractions and clutter, so that the simple, important elements can really shine through. I have a lot of new content, and some of it has never even seen the online world. So keep an eye out for that all kicking off in the next couple weeks. I’ll be sharing it all over Facebook and Instagram.

This past week I was thrilled to have my work featured on one of the top UK wedding blogs, Boho Weddings. Karl and Nicole’s teepee village wedding was highlighted. I feel honoured to have my work featured alongside so many other beautiful weddings. Check out the blog here.

I’m looking forward to updating this blog more often. With all the changes that are happening, it will be fun to share some of them here. If you don’t already, I share little tidbits on Instagram more often, feel free to follow me.

Happy Holidays
I'm not going to lie, Christmas has kind of taken a back seat this year to other things that are going on. But I still love this time of year and knowing that there is going to be a respite, from work and other things, to spend with family and friends. I like taking part in our local community's holiday activities that bring people together and I love finding little treasures for people to open on Christmas day. Favorite gift I found this year were these little stamp sets for my niece and Eliot's god-daughter.I also really love when I get to reconnect with people who's photos I've taken in the past. One of the biggest compliments is getti ...

Southampton Children’s Photographer :: At The Circus
You may recognize these two little ones. We did a complete family shoot with them last year which you can see HERE.This set up was for Carter and Makenna's 2nd birthday. This is the sweetest photo session I've ever done. It was completely designed and thought up my Carter and Makenna's mom, Marissa. She had this idea in her head for a while and when she asked if I'd photograph it, I was so excited. It sounded like way too fun. I can only take credit for the photos. The set up and styling was done completely by Marissa. She made the signs, and the streaming bunting, she is incredibly creative. Makenna and Carter are 2 very lucky 2 year old ...
