Travel Journal: New Forest Getaway

Travel Journal: New Forest Getaway

I recently decided to be spontaneous and went on a mini getaway to the New Forest (one of my favourite places – I love the wild ponies!). I spent a night in a lovely spa hotel (because a girl needs a break, am I right?!) and then went for a midday walk before driving back to Surrey.

Today I will be chatting about a topic that i’ve been wanting to speak up about for a long time.

I’ve just struggled with how to word it and how to share my story with transparency without worrying about what “other people” will think. 

Then I found some “other people” who had shared similar stories, and their stories encouraged me – they made me feel less like an outcast, more accepted. 

And I knew that it was time.

If i can be the voice that encourages just one person and makes them feel less alone in their struggle or story, I need to step into those shoes. No question about it.

People who share my story need to know that they’re not alone. They need to know that there is hope and healing and that their struggle doesn’t have to last forever.

Sometimes, life knocks on the door and you've got to be The One to step up and step in. When Kathryn and Moray got in touch with me, they had just been let down by their third wedding photographer. Their wedding was in two days. Yup. 

What makes a picture look good?

A picture can look absolutely perfect to anyone else, but if you felt stiff and awkward in the moment, you won’t like it.

Two years ago, April hadn’t even planned on going to that party. 

The party where she’d sit up all night, talking to a handsome stranger. The party where she met Ricardo.
