York Steiner School: Advent Fair 2014

My little girl Holly started kindergarten at the York Steiner School in September and absolutely loves it.  One of the biggest events at the school is the annual Advent Fair which is so lovely.  Full to the brim of craft stalls, children’s activities, amazing food, music and a beautiful Grotto.   The Advent Grotto this year was my favourite yet.  The theme was Father Christmas’ house on Christmas Eve after he’s left to...

Children’s photography York: Holly is not so little anymore

Children’s photography York: Holly is not so little anymore

I can only apologise for the shocking lack of images shared over the last year of Holly.  Client work always comes first and although the camera has been working hard capturing my little girl growing up there never quite seems enough time to share.  She’s now 2 1/2 and I’m really not sure how that happened! We had a Mobo horse when we were little so it was really cool when my Mum picked one up at a local auction for Holly. ...

Our new home in lovely York

Official fanfare announcement….  I’m now officially a York based photographer.  We’ve been in our new lovely house a few weeks now and we are so happy.  It already feels like home and would like to suggest that York is quite possibly the coolest and friendliest city on the planet! It hasn’t been a big move geography wise but from a lifestyle perspective it feels massive.  It’s all about quality of life and...

Holly – my little baby turns one…

Holly – my little baby turns one…

I’m really not sure where a year has gone to but on Saturday it was our little girl’s first birthday!  To help mark the occasion we held a chilled out afternoon tea party for family and friends at home.  Holly had a fab time and loved hanging out with her little friends.  I didn’t take as many photographs as I’d have liked as I was busy in hostess mode but here are some absolute favourites of my little baby girl and...

Holly at 11 months

Holly at 11 months

I’ve had to keep these under wraps until now as some of them were used as Christmas prezzies for family so it didn’t seem right to give them a sneak preview!  Holly’s growing up so fast and I can’t believe that she’ll be one in less than 2 weeks – where has a year gone ??!!  I love her cheeky cheesy smile and was really chuffed to catch it so well on one of the images.  She’s just started to take her...

Holly rocks the studio

Holly rocks the studio

It’s been a busy week for us with Jonny in the studio recording tracks for the Fossil Collective Album.  Took Holly over to visit her Daddy on Thursday and she seemed to love it – a producer in the making?  Great to hear the Fossil boys in action and can’t wait for the finished album – it’s going to be amazing.  So proud of Jonny and all the hard work he’s put into the project.  Some images also of...

The great Tongue Tie battle

Sorry to dwell on a slightly depressing and personal matter but it’s really important to me that I try to help out others who might find themselves in my situation…. After an amazing birth experience using Hypno Birthing techniques I hadn’t given breast feeding a second thought in terms of preparation.  As with so many other Mums you just take it for granted that breastfeeding is something that just happens naturally. ...
