I moved to Dorset when I was 2yrs old, not having much of a say in the matter a choice I’m glad my parents made. Growing up here I didn’t see much of what was around me, tangled up in my our life of school, friends and daily drama of a teenager, as a child you don’t take in the special moments that you now value. Dorset is a beautiful place full of adventure, with miles of countryside and coastline waiting to be explored. Living here I am lucky enough to experience this amazing place in all its glory, through out the seasons, watching the change of nature makes me appreciate and respect this place I call home.
Now married, I get to share my adventures with my husband and daughter, we are all lucky enough to share the same passion in Dorset and being outside…no matter the weather!
Don’t forget the Camera!
As a Photographer…seeing Dorset through the lens and telling a story is what I like to do best. I very much value the small things that make my day great, this has made me a better photographer, a better parent and wife.
Value the small moments too!
Driving to the local village to drop my daughter off to school, making the 5 min walk up the lane skipping as she holds my hand so tight. As we approach the school gate,
we get a lovely feeling as we walk past the church where we got married last year, its a happy memory we get to live over and over each morning.
Driving down the country lanes in my CRV, not knowing what is about to come round the corner…..a tractor, a car, a huge muddle puddle!
Hearing my husband walking up the path, after a long day at work. As he walks in a burst of excitement that runs from the living room shouting ‘daddy’ greets him, followed by a happy wife and another pair of shoes to trip over.
Valuing the smaller things in life has made me see the world very differently, Now as a photographer I see even more, I stop and enjoy moments that would normally pass by way to fast. As a photographer it’s more important to me to see the world with that ‘Photographer’s Eye’ then to spend hours in training learning the technical side to photography. That side comes with practice, but having a photographer’s eye is something you have already, it cant be taught.
Bring your Photographer’s Eye to Dorset! you won’t regret it!
Dorset has it all…whether you are into photography or not, countryside,coastline, woodland walks, beaches, events and festivals. come and see for yourself.
