Wild & Free

Wild & Free {Personal Blog Post}


Shooting from my heart

In 2015 I made a conscious effort to photograph my two children how they are – finding beauty in the every day and documenting them with their own unique personalities and traits. I wanted to capture their belly laughs, their silliness, the fun & games they got up to and adventures unfolded. I wanted to learn and encourage my creative soul, there was little or no direction from me to the kids, it was just like normal – I just happened to have my camera with me at all times.

I don’t care what they wear, I don’t care if they get muddy – clothes can be washed! WE are a family who love to be outdoors, running through fields, walking barefoot on the sand and climbing trees (Well not me…..!) My favourite images are the ones where they don’t know I’m there – capturing the moment.

Personal Project – 52

For 2016 I have decided to document these images on a personal Website (www.wild-free.co.uk)
Wild & Free is exactly how I see my family. I plan to document with images every week, I want to show the highs and lows, it isn’t all about the fake smiles, we all have bad days… we’re human after all.

Printing the images

I cannot stress enough how important it is to print the images, you cant beat holding the images and seeing them on a daily basis! (You should see my house – my walls are covered) Every time I glance at them they make me smile and remember the times they were taken. With project 52 I plan to make a book with every image I’ve chosen for 2016.

This has also made me evaluate my portrait work and what I can offer clients. I am pleased to offer TWO types of portrait work.
