In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    I love the way you seem to look for unusual perspectives and angles for your portraits.
    I also like how your lighting covers such a wide range between highlight and shadow without losing detail even in the extremes. And there’s so many shapes and textures that you’ve used your lighting to accentuate, but managed to keep them subtle… encouraging me to seek them out.
    I find it hard to believe you’ve only been shooting seriously for a couple of months judging by the quality and originality of your portfolio. Almost as hard to believe as that you’ve got NINE kids.
    You are definitely a worker of miracles, and will probably end up a saint.
    Nice work!

  • Ah, thank you! 2 months ago I stumbled across the website, with its photo competitions and quickly became addicted… before that I don’t think I knew what a low key image was! Or high key, for that matter. Through I was introduced to redbubble – how wonderful! There is nothing like seeing other people produce amazing work on a daily basis to improve your own! I feel like a whole new chapter of my life just started… ( :
