Blog / The year that was 2015 – a round-up

I wanted to do a little round-up of my 2015, so here it is!  Just a little one, a few pics from some of the jobs I’ve done.  This year I’ve shot in London, all over Essex, the Suffolk coast and throughout Suffolk, Saffron Walden, Cambridge and surrounding villages, Bury St Edmunds, and all over the country for the editorial shoots.  This year has felt really long and full, in a good way, which is great!  January feels a life time ago.  I like it when years feel like that.  It’s kind of gone in a flash, but not at all. I’ve done some lovely weddings, at golf clubs, village halls, marquees in gardens, register offices, more village halls, hotels, and some barns.  Some full days choc full of family, friends and celebrations, through to pre-wedding intimate photo sessions (literally a few hours before the couple headed off to get married) and a surprise family gathering after an elopement.  I’ve photographed various editorial and commercial jobs for Fabulous magazine, S Magazine for the Sunday Express, Spirit and Destiny Magazine, Unsworth Sugden, Saffron Center for Young Musicians, and Artists and Illustrator magazine.  I’ve shot Christenings, 21st, 100th and 4th Birthday parties, newborns, babies, children, pregnancy bumps, families and other portraits that were “just because”.

It’s been really nice.  Along side all this my eldest son started school and turned 5.  My youngest is about to turn 2.  My husbands job has changed.  We bought a new shed.  I did yoga about 3 times, and ran once, maybe twice.  Drank about *** bottles of wine.  Watched about 8 million hours of TV of which I remember about 35 minutes. I bought one new camera and two new lenses.  I still didn’t buy an Ipad.  I re-branded and got a new website. I blogged a bit.  I spent too long looking at other peoples thoughts and pictures on social media and worried just a bit too much.  I tried to figure myself out a little bit better, but am not sure I’ve achieved that one. I enjoyed and cherished my children as much as I possibly could…in between feeling annoyed and frustrated and being a real person. I enjoyed my family.  I tried not to succumb to the feeling that I could possibly be becoming agoraphobic….I think the shock of the school run was to blame (the idea of chit-chat can often fill me with fear).  SO…I wasn’t going to say much was I, and here we are.

A great year, not yet over (but possibly it is by the time I get round to publishing this) and I’m looking forward to next year.  The diary looks pleasant so far, with some lovely weddings booked in and other exciting things along the way.  What a lucky, blessed person I am.  I really must stop worrying.  Hmmmm….we’ll see.  Big love all, happy 2016 and beyond to you all.
