"Will you catch me if I fall mummy?"

And we do at the very least try! And we do what we can, with the best of what we know as parents to ensure our mini humans grow up to be the best that they can be. But that's such a broad statement and one that has a different meaning for all parents. 

 

SpoonFed Talks Millionaire to MummySpoonFed Talks Millionaire to MummySpoonFed Talks event Susie Maguire Millionaire to Mummy

Maybe there are more women, more parents like Susie Maguire than we know of? and they too would be as big an inspiration as she is, in my opinion. This thing they call parenting, you know the sleepless nights and the constant worrying that comes with the territory "Am I doing it right?" "Am I following the rules?" "Am I feeding the right foods?" "Am I providing enough stimulation" and heaven forbid we fall into the trap of co-sleeping!... Guilty as charged!

Well forget all that rubbish, I agree with Susie when she says "parent from the heart", what do you feel is right? not what your head tells you but what your heart is telling you.  

We learn as we grow into this journey but sometimes I feel as though we have lost the ability to trust our own senses and our own unique ability to cope with whatever life throws at us, but that's just how society and alongside our own previous experiences have groomed us into falling into this discipline. 

I travelled South America for 6 months, on my own.  Life threw me into some pretty crazy, scary situations. I had a plan, and that plan was to simply let my journey unfold and run with it, whatever that entailed and so I did, much to the despair of friends and family. And it was pretty spectacular, I met some amazing people and witnessed the most breathtaking scenery. It was without a doubt worth every moment, even the crazy scary parts. Would it have been the amazing experience that it was? would I have even booked the ticket? had I not listened and followed my heart.

So I guess what I'm saying is we will never get it 100% right we cannot plan every eventuality in life and that would be pretty boring and non eventful so, let the journey unfold, take a chance and follow what's in your heart.  I've made more than a few decisions in my parenting career thus far that have raised more than a few eyebrows. But I stick to those decisions because that's how I parent, from my heart. So, say yes more than no to inspire your children and continuously encourage their natural curiosity of the world. 

Susie Maguire who has been a guest speaker on TedTalks came to Twickenham last week and gave a frank discussion about her own journey through parenting.  Her struggle to have children to finally falling pregnant to then becoming a single parent who then travelled the world with her son, schooling him along the way both in life and academically another inspiring and thought provoking talk from SpoonFed Talks

SpoonFed Talks The Secret To Being A Super Mum & Loving Your Motherhood https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/9/spoonfed-talks-the-secret-to-being-a-super-mum-loving-your-motherhood The ladies from the events team at SpoonFed Talks are back following their Summer break with their latest talk  "The Secret To Being A Super Mum & Loving Your Motherhood" with Jessica Founder of the SuperMum Society

I remember from my own experiences back in the early days of being a new mum, at first I had it all together or so I thought. Then I became that Mum who was feeling like a complete failure inside trying to keep on top of everything, trying to hold it all together, trying to run a business, trying to raise a baby, trying to be that "Super Mum" you know her, the one that manages to put make up on and always be immaculately dressed.

Well now you can be. Jessica gave a frank and honest account of her own experiences being a first time mum, the scare mongering horror stories people would so very often been overly keen to share (we all have THAT friend too) Life will never be the same we are told, and that's true but it doesn't mean it all has to end right there and then. Having a baby for me was the most empowering thing I have ever done as a person as a woman. It took me some time to get my head around it all and realise that after a brief sense of lose, losing myself was also a part of the journey of motherhood. Only to be reborn into a much stronger wiser person. 

It was really interesting listening to Jessica's journey which in some parts very much mirrored my own. She gave out lots of advice on creating your own values, priorities, goals, finding your tribe, dealing with toxic noise, enjoying motherhood and most of all... Having it all.

As part of this event I teamed up with Founder of The Birth of Mum Kaya George. Her business focusses on self care in motherhood and giving yourself back a little me time. It's a monthly subscription box with specially designed quests, along with three or more beautiful and carefully selected lifestyle products aimed to help you make self-care a priority. In conjunction with my very own project 'Something for the Mamas' which is all about empowering mums, showing gratitude and appreciation and acknowledging how hard this job this and that we are all in it together.  And so together Kaya and I we were offering mums the chance to nominate a mum-friend who they felt deserved a little gift of self care in doing so they too were automatically entered into a prize draw on the day to win a small gift of self care. The winner was announced on my Instagram page.

The Birth of Mum - Something for the Mamas Give Away https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/9/the-birth-of-mum---something-for-the-mamas-give-away  

 

A while back I kickstarted unbeknown to me at the time a project close to my heart that I now call 'Something for the Mama's'. The idea for this project came about after photographing an event for SpoonFed Talks which was held for mums who are looking to start their own businesses. As well as photographing the event I had decided to take free portraits of all mums attending with their little ones, as a way of giving something back. I know from personal experience that mums are rarely seen in photos as we are always the ones taking the photos. But from chatting to a few mums that day it made me realise that it's not just about being in a photo, although the memory of that photo we will cherish forever. I realised that the situation we all find ourselves in really is far bigger than that. Since then I decided to take it one step further and grow it into something for all mums, new mums, pro mums and especially mums in business as let's face it as mothers (full stop) when do we rarely put ourselves first and make time for a little ‘me time’? 

Self care in motherhood is crucial, a little me time goes a long way towards giving us back a bit of ourselves that we can so easily lose whilst playing out all the roles motherhood demands. It is a tough job and tougher still if you don’t make time for yourself. Time after all is the biggest gift we can give back to ourselves.  
 

So... This is where you come in! ✨ GIVEAWAY ✨as part of this project we are giving you a chance to nominate a mum friend who you think truly deserves a gift of self care. The prize is a gift of self-care in a box. But not just any old box, these contents have been lovingly put together with mums in mind and the theme is all about Gratitude.


It’s easy to enter;

 - Simply tag a mum friend in the comments under the Instagram post, someone who you feel truly deserves to win this beautiful gift.

- If you are attending the next SpoonFed Talks event 'The secret to being a Mum and loving motherhood' you can also nominate a mum directly here, by doing so you will be automatically entered into a prize draw on the day to win a small gift of self care, just for you. 

 

And so to kick start this project meet the wonderful woman behind the box, Kaya George Founder of The Birth of Mum, wife, mother and mumpreneur. 

 

Tell us an unknown fact about you? (can be funny… no pressure)

An unknown fact about me is that I am secretly a massive in-the closet hippie! I mean crystals, tarot cards, out of body experiences, the lot. I’m fascinated by the theories of quantum physics and the idea that we are all just walking masses of vibrating energy! But to tell you the truth, I rarely, if ever talk about this stuff with people as I get scared that they won’t take me seriously or will think I don’t understand ‘real’ science, or even worse, that I’m completely nuts! I guess the secrets out now though. 

 

Tell us about your business?

I set up The Birth of Mum Box as being in the throes of mummying a baby and a toddler, I am experiencing 1st hand how tough it is to make time to look after yourself as a mum. Not only the physical self-care, I also found that all the things I used to do to feed my soul (told you I was a hippie) became a distant memory. Speaking to other mums, I knew this was a universal problem and that’s when the idea for The Birth of Mum Box was... er born.

It’s a monthly subscription box that delivers self-care ‘quests’ or mini challenges, along with beautiful lifestyle and beauty products that support those quests. Each month takes on a different self-care or personal growth theme and all the quests are designed to fit this theme. For example, our first box was the Mindfulness box and each of the three quests were short activities that would help you weave mindfulness into your everyday life. The products inside ranged from jewellery, a gorgeous piece of homeward and of course products to help you pamper and relax. 

I really felt the box should have a tangible effect on the recipient’s fulfilment and happiness and not just be a box of nice ‘stuff’. I always source the highest quality natural beauty and food products and would never include anything in the box that I wouldn’t be happy to use on myself or in my own home.

 

Tell us why your gift is the perfect way to gift something back to another mum?

I feel the box is a perfect if not essential gift for mums as they so very rarely get any encouragement to take time just for themselves after becoming parents. What better gift for a tired mum than the gift of self-care? 

We give so much and so fully that it’s easy to get burned out and unhappy. Motherhood should be a time where we feel massively empowered and a time where we get to celebrate our immense strength as women and I hope that’s this box can help with that in some way.

We Got This Sometimes TW - Be Inspired Event with Steph Douglas and Holly Tucker https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/7/we-got-this-sometimes-tw---be-inspired-event-with-steph-douglas-and-holly-tucker Starting a business with a family sounds pretty straight forward right? But in reality it's tough going. Thankfully we were blessed with another great event organised by the team at We Got This Sometimes - TW  held a The Exchange's sunny roof top bar in Twickenham.

The event itself was a talk with the hugely successful entrepreneurs Holly Tucker UK Ambassador for Creative Small Businesses. Founder of the online marketplace, notonthehighstreet.com,  Holly & Co, a small business advice and inspiration platform, founder and trustee of The Happy Bricks Foundation and co-author of best-selling business books Build a Business From Your Kitchen Table and Shape Up Your Business alongside  Steph Douglas Founder and owner of the online gift company Don't Buy Her Flowers which she started after having her first baby, wanting to give something back to all other mums because " having babies is awesome and tough and new mums deserve something special just for them" which has since grown and now caters for all occasions. Steph also runs the blog 'Sisterhood and all that' about the highs, lows and laughs of honest parenting,  which she launched just prior to the the start of her business. Phew! So between them, there is A LOT of experience and expertise. 

It was a hugely inspirational and honest talk about business start ups in the early days, surviving the highs and lows and going from strength to strength. A few mama's got the chance to have a 10 minute speed mentoring session with both Holly and Steph. 

Another great night out which I'm sure fuelled a lot of mums with the confidence to pursue their businesses and ultimately their dream of working for themselves.

SpoonFed Talks Event Getting back to Work with Juliet Turnbull Founder of 2to3 days https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/7/spoonfed-talks-event-getting-back-to-work-with-juliet-turnbull-founder-of-2to3-days A massive 54,000 women each year, mothers, are denied flexible working. Difficult to believe in this day and age when we are all about the 'modern world' and modern technology that makes us work 'smarter'. However, this is the reality. Thankfully women like Juliet Turnbull founder of the recruitment company 2to3 days is challenging the stigma of flexible working for mothers. Her company is all about championing flexible employment to encourage experienced mothers back into the work place. And I cannot sing her praises LOUD enough! 

Juliet came to visit us in Twickenham at the great location that is the Turks Head, the room was filled with mothers who are at different stages in their maternity leave but are all ultimately nearing a point of returning to work in whatever shape of form that may be. With the aim of course to support their family home life in order create that work/life balance. The aim of the workshop was to give an overview on the best possible way to approach your career whether that's with your current employer or are planning on trying something new.  Juliet has a wealth of experience and I'm sure left all mums attending full of confidence for their next steps in their career. 

Well done to the team at SpoonFed Talks for another truly inspiring and helpful event for us mums!

Mother and baby portraits in Twickenham a special gift from Love Miss D Photography https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/6/mother-and-baby-portraits-in-twickenham-a-special-gift-from-love-miss-d-photography For those who attended the recent SpoonFed Talks event "How to run a successful business (Even with a baby!)" Will know that I was there not only taking photos of the event but I had a little special gift for all Mums in attendance which was the opportunity to have a free portrait photo taken with their little ones.

So the idea being us mum’s are constantly taking photos of our babies, right? And so we inevitably end up being the ones taking photos of everyone else with our babies. It’s a sad but true fact. And I guess the idea stemmed from this and the not so secret fact that I don’t particularly like being in front of the camera much prefer the safety of being behind the lens, however, from my own experiences with my dear Mum, who also hates her photo being taken it does upset me a little to think that in years to come all I’ll have is memories and no photos to back them up! 

Being visual it’s not just a photographers thing, we all love to look at photos to remember events, special occasions and precious moments in time. So, “Something for the Mama's” is probably going to end up being some kind of project for me, potentially. Fuelled even more by one mum at the event who also made the comment that she is always the one doing the photo taking.  Well here’s a lift gift from me to you, dear Mama.

Take a look at the portraits below of some of the Mums from Tuesday’s event and their unbelievably cute baby’s and toddlers. 

If you would like a portrait session of you and your little one, there are still a few dates left to book the fantastic mini photo shoot offer that will finish at the end of July. To enquire about dates contact me by email.

Steph Douglas How to run a Successful Business (Even with a baby!) Twickenham https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/6/steph-douglas-how-to-run-a-successful-business-even-with-a-baby-twickenham Steph Douglas another hero added to my ever growing list in the long line of empowered women who even through the stress and strains of motherhood, not to mention a few sleepless nights, she has managed to start her own business, and blog 'Sisterhood (and all that)' whilst being a wife to hubby Doug and mother to three beautiful children. Phew! I felt exhausted just writing that.

So as a new business owner myself, my interest was peeked and I was keen to not only photograph but pick up a few tips at the event held on Tuesday 12th June 2018, at the Turks Head in Twickenham. Another successful event organised by Liv Tilley founder of the events company SpoonFed Talks

Steph started Don't Buy Her Flowers in 2014 following the birth of her first baby, read her story here  As a woman who started her business so early on in motherhood Steph was here to talk about how it all began, and how she managed it in those early days having no family close by to help out and with a toddler in tow. I can totally relate to this big time, one of the things thats sticks out in my mind from Steph's talk was the advise she gave to wait to start your business and not try to do it so early on when your baby is still well, a baby.

This was the first mistake I made in those precious early days, following a battle with former employers for a work/life balance upon return from maternity leave that pretty much forced my resignation. I then found myself under the pressure of wanting to help out in being a provider for our new mini family, but found it near on impossible with a small one that just added to my stress levels at the time and feelings of failure. So I'm right there with you on that front Steph, speaking first hand it's only now that my little one is reaching 2 years of age that I am able to find the time (and sanity) to really focus on my own business.  

It was a really interesting, frank and honest chat about starting a business and balancing parenthood. What was even more interesting was the number of mums (a large number of babies plus 1 Dad) in attendance. Inspiring actually that so many mothers are aiming to become business owners themselves. 

Not only was I taking photos of the event itself, in which I captured some really cute ones of the babies (see below) I was also offering every parent attending the talk  a free portrait photograph, one mum who had her photo taken made a comment that she has hardly any photos of her and her baby as she is always the one taking photos of everyone else. Which was really interesting to hear because this was also my own personal experience and one of the reasons behind why I was offering this opportunity to others. 

Just by purchasing a ticket to the talk everyone was entered into a competition to win a free family lifestyle photoshoot! The lucky winner was Rebecca Saunders! 

A really great event that saw a few friends made both babies and mums plus lots of coffee and catch ups.

Family Lifestyle Photographer in Richmond Upon Thames Meet The Hartigan Family https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/6/family-lifestyle-photographer-in-richmond-upon-thames-meet-the-hartigan-family Meet the Hartigans, and their new addition to their mini family. It's not easy being a parent, let alone a new parent, with a new baby of just 8 weeks old. But they made it look so natural and easy, even their beautiful baby girl, their miracle baby (their words!) Parenthood really suits these lovely two and I can tell that they are cherishing every moment of being parents. 

So I don't take it lightly that it can be a hard decision to make booking a photoshoot at such an early stage in your new family life.  There are so many questions that run through your mind like:

When exactly is it the right time to have a photo shoot?

When will the baby be old enough to settle in order to capture great photos? 

The answers to the above are pretty simple really, there is no right or wrong time to book a photoshoot, the photoshoot simply runs to baby's schedule, if they are hungry we stop for a feed, if they are tired we capture some cute photos of them sleeping or mummy or daddy grabbing a few snuggles but most importantly of all we work at a pace that suits your family and your baby's needs.

I'm lucky being a photographer that I can take hundreds of photos of my little one and I still do. I can honestly say that nothing beats capturing memories at any stage in their life, but for me when I photograph families it has to be the first few months - years that are the most precious of all memories.

Remember that the first few weeks/months baby's change dramatically so why not document this time with photos to remember life as parents when it all began. There is still time to book one of the Summer mini photo shoot sessions for more information take a look at the blog post here.

Meet Liv, wife and mother to one beautiful baby boy. She is also the mastermind behind her new venture Spoonfed Talks  an events company that caterers for all Mums (and Dads) who wish to stimulate their intellect away from just 'baby talk'. It's true we do all lose a sense of self when we have a baby, and we find that we put ourselves third in level of importance. That's why it's so important to give yourself a little me time every once in awhile, the best part is, never missing out due to child care issues. Liv has found the perfect venue to host her day-time events at the Turks Head in Twickenham, which is not only baby friendly, serves great food, has a lovely garden, but Liv also provides baby toys to keep your little ones entertained. 

The first of many events took place yesterday 'The Life of a Lion Researcher' with Dr. Simon Dures giving a talk about his incredible discovery of the male lioness.

Simon spoke for the best part of an hour giving an honest insight into one of the most exciting studies about lions to date and his 7 years of research spent in Tanzania, South Africa before finally ending in Botswana. His research explores the movement, dispersal and genetics of lions across southern Africa.

It was a very interesting talk and I even managed to attend and listen, take photos and look after my mini man, taking Mumma Multitasking to a whole new level! 

Can you see your beautiful bubba? Bookings are now open for the Spring/Summer mini photoshoot sessions for you, your family or your newborn so get in touch as spaces are filling up fast.

We Got This Sometimes Events Mother Pukka Comes to Twickenham https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/5/we-got-this-sometimes-events-mother-pukka-comes-to-twickenham On Tuesday 8th May, us Twickenham folk got the chance to meet the legendary (or soon to be) Anna Whitehouse aka Mother Pukka. Anna a wife to Matt and mother of two used to work for L'Oreal until she fell pregnant and upon her return to work requested flexible working only to be told that 'If it was given to her, they'd have to give it to everyone' (queue shocked/angry facial expressions!) Uh Ha!

The thing is L'Oreal from what I know has a predominantly female workforce so its pretty shocking in itself to ever be told that your request for flexible work should be based upon others needs, given that the company is practically ALL FEMALE at some point or another pretty much the majority of your work force will be putting in said request and what you gonna do, alienate everyone!!?? 

Anyway - Since then Anna aka Mother Pukka aka Maternity rights hero has launched her campaign Flexappeal, which is championing flexible working rights for everyone, hoping to bring about a much needed change in our society about the need, the right even, to have a work-life balance. 

She's also written a pretty frank and funny book about 'honest parenting' called Parenting the shit out of life.

I was so chuffed to be asked to photograph this event, another successful one for the team at We Got This Sometimes - TW  Why? well undoubtedly my love for all things photography, a night out out of course, chatting to like minded parents and my secret love for free flowing Prosecco! But more than that, the flexible working topic is very close to my heart having gone through my own dreadful experiences with a former employer. 

I wasn't quite sure how I could help other women in similar situations but I knew I would try to, however small, in the end it all adds up to a big difference. Anna is my new hero and so whether it's you or someone you know going through a tough time at the moment I urge you to check out the FLEXAPPEAL campaign, we can all do our bit if not for you or someone you know then your children who will undoubtedly face the same issues unless we make this change happen. So help to spread the word by sharing this blog post. 

Here are the images from the night. 

 

Don't forget the Spring/Summer mini photoshoot bookings are now open, for more information click here

If you have an even that you would like me to photograph then please get in contact

Scummy Mummies - We Got This Sometimes Twickenham Events https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/4/scummy-mummies-we-got-this-sometimes-twickenham-events  

The comedy duo infamously known as The Scummy Mummies graced us with the presence in their own unique show which included a large dose of glitz and glitter and some unforgettable trade mark outfits that would see Dame Edna herself green with envy. The show was full of everything from ironing boards, an edible medal - courtesy of Enchanting Bakes, Prosecco (standard) and an outfit fit for a Queen, our Queen, Caroline who was crowned Twickenham's Scummiest Mummy after a confession that her daughter asks her to fart on her head every evening before bed!! Kids eh! Not forgetting the numerous tongue in cheek songs about honest parenting, everything any parent needs for a night filled with lots of laughs. What an amazing venue at The Exchange in Twickenham with that sunny roof top bar, a little hidden gem no doubt!... Who knew! 

Another successful evening for those talented event organisers at We Got This Sometimes TW and another hilariously entertaining night 'Out Out' for us parents. And lucky me I was asked to photograph the event so I get front row seats and even managed to get a cheeky photo with them at the end of the night (last pic) 

The lovely ladies at We Got This Sometimes TW were also supporting Redbox Project - West London, this is a non profit organisation raising funds and awareness for the many girls across the country who cannot afford sanitary products and for this reason miss out on education.

Lastly, If you missed the fliers handed out on the evening, I am now taking bookings for the Spring/Summer mini photoshoot sessions for an amazing promotional price of just £69. Contact me for further information, or take a look at the flier here

Knackered parents night out event with We Got This Sometimes Twickenham https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/4/knackered-parents-night-out-event-with-we-got-this-sometimes-twickenham With the alcohol flowing, lots of Mummy and Daddy's in attendance, plenty of laughs alongside some honest raw topics of conversation about parenting, it could only be another hugely successful event organised by the team at We Got This Sometimes - Twickenham  held at The Turks Head Pub, Winchester Room in Twickenham. 

Hosted by none other than Anniki Sommerville editor of Selfish Mother and co-founder of the The Hot Bed Collective a very straight talking and hilariously funny interview with Matt Coyne Man vs Baby and Sunday Times bestselling author (“hero for dads everywhere” (Daily Mirror)) and Sarah Turner The Unmumsy Mum who has published two Sunday Times best selling books The Unmumsy Mum and The Unmumsy Mum Diary

Lucky me I got to indulge in my first loves... A bit of photography and a good old chin wag with some like minded Mummy and Daddy's. You can even catch a rare glimpse of me in the photo's below.

Lots more exciting events coming up soon for us parents, yep another night 'out out'! If you missed the last event 'Hurrah for Gin' with Katie Kirby take a look at the photos on the blog

"PERFECT"

the first inkling of you, crept into her head, and she waited 

as you grew she adjusted her thinking to include the idea of you 

wrestled with uncertainty, fear, doubt crystallizing into acceptance 

and with a growing feeling of excitement welcomed you 

curving her hands softly around you 

eyes soft, mouth plush with secrets 

visible signs of transformation upon her flesh 

until the taut regions spongy with protective cushioning 

shaped to your tiny fist in smooth ripples 

as you revealed yourself in small beautiful shapes 

pressing longingly against her, your perfect foot testing its first ground while her hands smoothed and stroked peacefully absorbing not just the thought of you but the reality of you into her heart. 

 

 

 

Booking is now open!

Contact us direct to enquire and book your photoshoot session. Vouchers must be purchased by the end of March and are valid for a period of 6 months.

Katie Kirby graced us Twickenham/St.Margarets folk with her presence wit and humour tonight at the amazing event @hurrahforgin that was held at The Turks Head Pub. Congratulations also goes to to the team @we_got_this_tw for hosting a hugely successful launch event. I’m told that there are more amazing nights 'out out' for you parents to follow with the likes of @scummymummies in the diary so make sure you follow these lovely ladies  @we_got_this_tw  to be the first to hear about them.

I think I speak for all the Mums (and a couple of Dads!) who attended last night when I say that it was really refreshing to know that Katie is just as light hearted, down to earth, and naturally funny as she comes across in her books! #thedailystrugglesofarchieadams and #hurrahforgin 

In a very frank, honest and genuinely funny interview, Katie talked us through the reasons for starting her blog about the funny side to parenting which then led on to writing her infamous book Hurrah for Gin and now the just as funny if not more so sequel The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams aged 2 1/4. A Q&A session followed where the audience were able to ask Katie questions such as how she manages to juggle the work life balance with a family, how to go about starting a blog and more importantly did she have any cures for a hangover? Which she did, rather oddly Monster Munch crisps... Who knew! :) 

Throughout the night I spoke with lots of fabulous mummy's who all commented on how extremely well the event had been put together, not forgetting and appropriately so the Gin was in steady flow. Here are the photos to show how the event unfolded.

Sometimes I wonder if I have the best job in the world. I know that sounds cliche right? But consider this, I’m entrusted into the privacy of people’s homes, which for me I consider to be sacred space. I’m allowed into their world to capture memorable moments for both the parents, their children and their children’s children to cherish for years to come. That alone I consider as a gift, that’s priceless. 

The best part though is that I get to meet so many kindred spirits and some unbelievably cute children and witness the beautiful and undeniable connections within their family. 

I’ll always be grateful for that. So as my way of giving something back I am running a competition exclusively for all the parents attending the @hurrahforgin event on February 6th 2018  at The Turks Head Pub hosted by @we_got_this_tw.

I've posted a little blog about this on my instagram page @lovemiss_d in which I shamefully admit to being the only mother in the world to have not been introduced to the hilariously funny book about the trials and tribulations of being a parent Hurrah for Gin written by Katie Kirby, who by the way has also written an equally hilarious follow up Hurrah for Gin: The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams (Aged 2 ¼).


So to be entered for your chance to win simply look out for the vouchers on the night with a special promo code to use. Good Luck ☘️ and see you all there!

Daddy and Me https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/1/daddy-and-me

I must look like a weirdo sitting here gooey eyed with a grin even a Cheshire cat would be envious of. These two, thick as thieves. I can see it now, plotting together - plenty of practical jokes for Mumma in the future. Lots more fake spiders in the bathroom hidden underneath the shower gel and fake spiders hidden underneath my pillow 😨  These two, they’re trouble in the making. As they happily play away mini man on his favourite, the swing, Daddy pulling goofey faces, I grab my camera just in time to capture this shot. ‘We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone’. I ponder on that for awhile. It’s true motherhood can sometimes seem like it’s passing by WAY too quickly! Am I alone in thinking this way? So I take photos to help me remember moments and the love and connection within our mini family.


That’s why I love my job, being a photographer I’m able to gift so many family’s with memories of their own. Who doesn’t love trawling through old photos! The way I see it when we are gone from this earth we leave behind a legacy but what about the memories for our children and our children’s children. By which time our mini man will have a million and one (and then some) photos to trawl through, which he may or may not be pleased about but I’m hoping the later 🙏🏼 I hope these photos bring him years worth of memorable moments and plenty of smiles.

Happy New Year 2018 and Why I love This Photo https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2018/1/happy-new-year-2018-and-why-i-love-this-photo

 

As the shutter clicked and the sensor in camera did it's thing I knew in an instant this would be the one I used as my first 'Why I love this photo' post for 2018.

I don't think there's a need for an explanation with this one. But escaping the obvious, a. unbearably cute smile and b. the unbearably cute fact that he's in the midst of a melt down in stitches, I wanted a photo that pretty much summed up how my 2018 began and how it will continue.

Why I love this photo?...

For start it makes me grin alongside him like a cheshire cat and every time I look at it I burst with pride as a proud Mumma of such a beautiful soul. It makes me realise how lucky I am for the opportunity of being a mum and the gift of personal growth that comes with it. 2017 may have been a whirlwind of a year but through it all there has always been one constant in my life and I am always grateful for that.

Happy New Year all I hope your's started with a smile and hopefully a giggle or two.

My baby boy is slowly turning into a mini man in front of my very eyes, yet somehow I feel as though I'm missing it :( Maybe if I were filthy rich I would then have the means to employ a cook, cleaner and house keeper (sounds a little something like heaven) and then, maybe I could spend every waking minute watching him intently. BUT, even then I would still feel as though I had missed something. 

I know what you're thinking... What is she banging on about?  Surely being a stay at home mum you get to spend all the time in the world with your baby? and yes to a degree that's partly true. But life just isn't that black n white, thank-god! So what I mean by this is pretty simple, though I may over complicate it so bear with me, there truly is a point.  

I'm still a person too... I still have hopes, dreams and aspirations. I still want to take care of myself and feel good about me and who I am and MY place in this world. Does that make me a weirdo? Does this make me selfish? More importantly does this make me a bad mum? That there are times, when I take time for, like now for example, writing this blog post and my mini man is sat on his mini armchair eating a chocolate biscuit (naughty mummy) and watching Mr Tumble (queue grimaces from all knowing mothers!) Guilt is a beautiful thing, when you're a mum you might as well be wearing a neon sign stating 'Guilty as charged'... This of course calls for another blog post to elaborate on this subject (it's HUMUNGOUS) But for now I'll aim to stick to my original point. 

The answer to the above questions is a simple NO. This make me HUMAN, a human being. You don't switch off from life, a life you had prior to being Mum. What happens is you become so caught up in the whirlwind of motherhood, the birth, having a person to look after 24/7, no sleep, 3 in a bed, Google becoming your new best friend - the one you turn to for everything, food - feeding your baby the right foods!? the list of topics to worry about is endless and if the truth be known not all mums are so positively encouraging in this regard, which is a real shame as motherhood is huge without the added pressure of other mums looking down their noses at your choices... OK I'm heading way of subject here, told you I would!

So where were we? YES what happens is that in this constant state of thinking for another person, sometimes overthinking (comes with the territory) you do temporarily forget who you are and before you know it you have no identity left at all. You're simply 'Mum' People ask your baby's name, but they never ask you yours, they ask you about your baby, but they never ask you how your day has been?... So add this to the mix and we find ourselves slap bang in the middle of an identity crisis. 

Please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying It's not all doom and gloom and "LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!" No, nothing that dramatic in fact, this period passes in time. You start to get some sleep, you get your bed back, you've nailed breakfast lunch and dinner, and feeding your bubba a chocolate biscuit every once in awhile wont get you reported for being a bad mum (watching Mr. Tumble might though!) During it all there are snippets of moments, moments of clarity I like to call them when your baby will do something thats either cute, hilarious or truly amazing and then there are the quieter moments like those in the photo's of this blog post, taken at a pumpkin pick your own farm. These moments where you'll find yourself watching from afar in awe as you see the world through your child's eyes, and that's where the magic of parenthood lies. 

So I guess what I'm saying is even though you may feel or felt as I did, that you have missed out on your baby growing up, you really haven't because even the smallest of gestures turn out to be the biggest and best parts of watching them grow. Even though you may feel like you're somewhere in the midst of an identity crisis... well you can now rid yourself of that thought with immediate effect too. You are still YOU!... just a better more improved, more resilient, more patient, more lovable and don't get me started on multi-tasking capabilities... WOW!  So it's time to let go of the guilt, and remember as much as it may feel like it at times, you're not alone in your thinking. Take time for you - it will keep you sane, in this very insane job they call motherhood! and TAKE PHOTOS... one way of always remembering those first moments, those cute moments, the hilarious and of course truly amazing ones too plus every other moment in the middle and beyond.

What a difference 6 months makes! My not so little bubba finally made an appearance on 9th July exactly two weeks later than predicted and it's been one hell of a roller coaster ride ever since.

Sleepless nights - Check

Raging Hormones - Check

Baby Brain - Check Check 

It's a bit like being pregnant only now there's a physical person that you have to take care of on a daily basis. Did I say sleepless nights?... OH yes, oops! that'll be the baby brain! You get the picture right? 

But its all been worth it every sleepless night, every hormonal tear shed, every ending to a sentence (you know) the 'thingy' takes on a whole new endless list of meanings, every item lost (but not really you just forgot where you put it 5 minutes before)... I wouldn't change any of it. I have the most beautiful boy in the world and he brings me so much joy each day watching him grow (FAST) and seeing his own little personality develop... Oh yes, he's going to be a cheeky one! Not sure where he gets that from :)

You Bump and Me Series - Impatiently Waiting https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/7/you-bump-and-me-series-impatiently-waiting

 

Being at such a late stage in my pregnancy it's all systems GO on the nesting front! As a self confessed OCD addict, these raging hormones and the imminent if not slightly later than expected arrival of the little one wasn't really helping matters.  

Racing towards the 2nd week of being 'overdue'  I would have considered myself to be in a pretty peaceful place all things considered had it not been for the midwives at each appointment putting the fear of god into me with their preconceived idea that my birth 'may' go wrong followed up further with threats of being induced. Followed by further still well meaning friends sharing their thoughts and passing across information to a then heavily pregnant women at 42 weeks summarising why it's best to be induced at 39 weeks or face potential life threatening problems... yes probably not the wisest move.  

In any case, I'm massively in love with this bump of mine and if baby wants to stay in their all cosy and warm for a bit longer then I shall continue to wait, happily, impatiently but patiently for my little person to make their arrival in this world.

 

"PERFECT"

the first inkling of you, crept into her head, and she waited
as you grew she adjusted her thinking to include the idea of you
wrestled with uncertainty, fear, doubt crystallizing into acceptance
and with a growing feeling of excitement welcomed you
curving her hands softly around you
eyes soft, mouth plush with secrets
visible signs of transformation upon her flesh
until the taut regions spongy with protective cushioning
shaped to your tiny fist in smooth ripples
as you revealed yourself in small beautiful shapes
pressing longingly against her, your perfect foot
testing its first ground while her hands smoothed and stroked
peacefully absorbing not just the thought of you
but the reality of you into her heart.

A Sunny Easter Wedding at Oaks Farm Shirley https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/7/a-sunny-easter-wedding-at-oaks-farm-shirley Love Miss D PhotographyLove Miss D PhotographyWedding Photography

 

I'm so happy to finally blog the Easter wedding of Nick & Helen at the beautifully quaint setting of Oaks Farm in Shirley. The day itself was blessed with gorgeous sunshine (albeit a few non eventful showers here and there) a complete contrast to the last few weeks of dull days and dreary rain.  Nothing quite like a wedding to make the sun shine.

The love and connection between these lovely two who met at work was undeniable during their engagement photo shoot and have gone from making their excuses about lost stationary in order to see each other to what was a beautiful wedding day... Seems like nothing was going to get in the way of these two getting married and their day flew by without so much as a blip. Even me at a then 6 months pregnant ploughed on and lasted till the late hours to capture treasured memories for the happy couple for what was a truly beautiful day.

A day trip to sunny Brighton https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/5/a-day-trip-to-sunny-brighton OH I do like to be beside the seaside oh I do like to be beside the sea... de dum de dum! I haven't been to a beach in the UK for god knows how long so we decided to take advantage of the glorious weather we've been blessed with recently, take bump out on it's first seaside excursion and headed to none other than sunny Brighton. 

Of course we had a few stop off's along the way, for the inevitable loo breaks that became a bit of a theme ahem... give me a break, I'm pregnant! :) 

None the less we made it in true 'Curly n Mikee' style mid afternoon in time to soak up the sun and indulge in a refreshing glass of cider for Mikee and a real strawberry milkshake for me a bump... YUM!

Why I love this photo...? The Bridesmaids https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/5/why-i-love-this-photo-the-bridesmaids Hmm, I don't think it's really difficult to see why. Perhaps it's the pregnancy hormones on 'broody' overdrive. But these little cuties were such a wonder to photograph. There is definitely something indescribably Cute! about miniature bridesmaids :) Especially when they have an equally mischievous personality to match. 

So I was unable to pick just the one photo I'm afraid so it's a why I love these set of photos?... Why? Because they sum up the reason why every bride to be should have munchkin bridesmaids... too cute for words!

You Bump & Me Series 'Reality Check' https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/5/you-bump-me-series-reality-check Had a bit of a scare today which saw us rushing off to Hospital having baby checked over. For 2 days now I hadn't felt much movement from a usually very over active baby. It's one of those scenarios where you find yourself questioning yourself. Have I felt movement? Have I even considered or registered that baby hasn't moved?. Most babies are pretty active when mum gets into bed of an evening settles onto her comfy pillow all wrapped up and snug in her quilt then hey presto baby has other plans that include somersaults, backflips and all that jazz!

Still, as unwelcome a time of evening it is, you enjoy those moments as thats when you really get to tune into your baby after such a busy day where your focus has been on a million other things. But, for me this hadn't been happening across two days and undeniable fear had started to creep in. So I bit the bullet and phoned the hospital and spoke with one of the midwifes who advised me in a no uncertain terms to head straight to the hospital so baby's heart beat and movements could be checked.  I'm not sure if it was her urgent tone or the words she used but hearing this reality kicked in big time and fear had all but taken over, there were tears but the OH was good and kept calm which helped me to stay positive. Thankfully the happy ending to this story is that baby is fine, so fine in fact impressively performing quite a few somersaults in the time I was strapped up to the monitor. I think thats what they call the Law of Sod... or whatever... One truly relieved if not slightly exhausted Mummy and Daddy! 

 

So I just wanted to share with you some pictures that the OH took a few weeks back of me n little bump back then (not so little now!) I just wanted to take some time to appreciate this little miracle inside of me and share these precious moments and I guess the moral of the story is no matter how neurotic you think your being and I rate myself as a pretty easy going person and great at 'keeping my head whilst all around others are losing theirs' pregnancy will do funny things to your once oh so calming nature, but the point is you can never be too safe so to put your mind at rest make sure you get these things checked out, regardless!

The wonder of you! https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/4/the-wonder-of-you

 

So we find ourselves in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy! WTH!!… How did that happen so fast? Where has the time gone and crap we are NO where near prepared!! Are all very much pressing thoughts at this stage! With still so much to sort out, buy and read up on! UGH… it’s true what they say you’ll never be completely prepared no matter how much you ‘PLAN’

 

Planning has never really been on the priorities list for us, it was kind of a running joke that we would secretly boast about with pride. Plan? Don’t even know how to spell it, no, we don’t ‘Plan’ we live in the moment. Well if I can give one word of advice ‘Plan’ is a must and that’s the first rule of parenthood!

 

So back to bump, the photo above really does tell a story of its own. The fact that you see yourself every day makes no difference sometimes to the shocking fact that bump is growing and growing at a fast rate. Sometimes you wish you could control the speed in which it grows to allow yourself time for your brain to catch up with the very fact that ‘we’re having a baby’ This sentence is used quite often in our household… it’s a bit like positive affirmations, the idea being if I say them often enough they will sink into my subconscious and I will start to believe it.

 

So the wondrous third trimester has arrived and with little under 8 weeks to go its all systems go on the home front and with ‘Planning’ (there’s that word again!)

 

We went to our very first baby show a couple of weeks ago and was very much looking forward to it with the sole aim to buy everything we needed all under one roof… YAY! My intention was to be completely organized after this excursion… NOT. Far too many pushchairs, prams, cars seats, cots etc. on show for you to look over and decide upon. At one stage I turned into a woman possessed and could have been cast a part in the Exorcist for sure. Looking at the same pushchair for the 3rd time I turned to my OH ‘You have to help me decide’ I desperately pleaded wide-eyed and frantic, my OH who was very much in a state of composed level headedness looked at me with an expression that I can only consider translated to ‘Get a grip’! Who knew that shopping for a pushchair could be so stressful? 

 

On a serious note, the fact that my pregnancy has gone so quickly kind of makes me a little sad. Gone are the awful dreaded thoughts and anxiety about birth and I think the fact that we have started with our hypnobirthing classes has been a great help! Plus, time! Time in pregnancy as with everything else in life, is a great healer. Gone are the feelings of having an alien inside me (see post) every time the baby gave me a kick. These have been replaced with loving thoughts as the movement now feels like baby’s hand gently caressing my stomach from the inside… so cute! Instead of nerves I feel excited to meet our little one, I’m looking forward to the birth because I know that it will be my greatest accomplishment in life ever and any other experience in life just won’t compare.

 

Pregnancy is so amazing more than I can describe in words, if you’re a mum reading this you just ‘get it’ I will miss my bump for sure, even though we will have been together 9 months you spend a lot of that time really trying to get your head around a lot of things that come with pregnancy. It’s never all sweetness and light, stalks carrying babies, Bambi and tweeting bluebirds all round.

 

It’s the biggest reality check you will EVER have in life and once you finally get your head around it, the best feeling you will EVER experience, warts and all!

This lovely pair are getting married TOMORROW!... so excited to photograph this gorgeous Easter wedding at the beautifully quaint Oaks Farm in Surrey. The story behind Helen and Nick's destined love is so cute, both teachers they first met when working at the same school and found excuse after excuse to talk to each other, baked cakes (YES please!) lost stationary etc until finally their love blossomed... and the rest they say is history :)

Why I love this photo https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/3/why-i-love-this-photo Meet Samuel! This photo was taken on the day of his Christening. Such an incredibly well behaved baby. Having sat through the Vicars service first, which was a two part series one at the front of the church then at the back where the baptismal font is, having had luke warm if not cold water poured all over his head, been paraded around in front of the entire guest list followed by paparazzi style photographs with nearest and dearest is it any wonder he broke down! I think even an adult would have called time out at the water being poured over their head. In all seriousness though what a little trooper! So bless him, he'd just about had enough when Mum came to the rescue. Look at his little sheepish face which reads 'thanks mum your the best' SO adorably CUTE! and look at mum's face kind of says it all right there...  #canyoufeelthelove :)

Pregnancy... what they don't tell you! https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/3/pregnancy-what-they-dont-tell-you

 

 

Is it me or do you find when pregnant everyone around you takes on the persona of pregnancy guru! So many theorys, so much advice... who's right? and who's wrong?! 

The answer is anybody's guess, BUT as much as your friends and family are dying to tell you 'everything you ever wanted to know about pregnancy but probably didn't even know to ask' what the hell happened when they were in fact pregnant themselves? I'll tell you something for nothing my impermeable words of wisdom are as follows... (this is what they failed to tell you then)

 

Two little pink lines

You never know how your going to react when the 2nd line of the pregnancy indicator appears, it's probably not the first time you've actually done a pregnancy test and in the back of your mind your subconscious is standing there tapping her foot whilst rolling her eyes and thinking 'yep and this won't be the last'. But that one time the 2nd line actually appears your whole world turns upside down... A BABY! weird! A BABY inside of me? even weirder! or maybe that was just me followed by long periods of staring into space. Whatever your reaction don't beat yourself up about it, it's not all hearts and flowers and bambi waggling his fluffy white tail as birds tweet around your head. No matter what they do or don't tell you, this is real and a very weird concept that can take some time for you to get your head around! 

 

The First Trimester

Expect your boobs to expand BIG time! Expect them to hurt, Expect them to feel like 10 lbs weights especially when you get out of bed in the morning. Expect early morning every morning visits to the bathroom (get used to this it lasts your entire pregnancy) So you were a health conscious person who ate nothing but brown rice and lettuce well you can forget all about that diet for a while, stodge stodge and hmm yes please more stodgy meals don't even think about lettuce as the very thought will turn your stomach inside out and have you running to the bathroom. Sleep? Yes feel free anywhere you like, at work, in the car, at the kitchen table... no point trying to fight it the sleep demon will take a hold of you whenever and wherever you are. Your belly is growing at a slow rate but no one has a clue yet that you are in fact preggars and in any case your still trying to get your head around this yourself so both you and your partner are quite happy to keep quiet until you get the all clear. HORMONES! don't get me started, but expect to cry, worry, scream, shout and basically feel like at times the whole world is falling apart around you and you have absolutely no control... if you had little to no idea about hormones beforehand brace yourself your in for a very rude awakening! 

 

Your 12 week scan

'Oh wow there really is a baby in there'... I'm sure I'm not the first person to think it, put it this way, even after 2 positive pregnancy tests, falling asleep at my desk, eating my way through stodgy meal after meal and battling with 10 lb weights that have rudely replaced my once pert little breasts, I wasn't to be convinced I was pregnant until an 'expert' had confirmed this. Sadly your GP no longer provides this kind of test so you kinda have to go with it for a while walking around in some form of limbo unable to tell people and expecting a bump to appear at any given moment. So when your 12 week scan date finally comes around and your pregnancy is finally confirmed it's quite a moment in itself but seeing this tiny oh so real baby your baby for the first time is something else. You'll look at the screen and then at your belly and continue to do this 2 or 3 times before your eyes rest back on the screen in a mixture of awe and bewilderment... queue Bambi and those tweeting birds - this is your moment! 

 

The 2nd Trimester

Back in the game! Pregnant? who? me? Oh that's what that huge bump is out front, I did wonder. Apart from that you don't feel at all pregnant. Eating habits are back on track your more than keen, possibly over keen to get back into exercising again and you look in the mirror and feel like YOU, only a better version every day. Your simply glowing and err growing. Now's the time when people will start to spot your bump you'll notice side way brief glances before they very quickly look away, this will either make you giggle inside or feel paranoid like you should be wearing a Neon sign stating 'Yes, you were right the first time' So much so that you find yourself subconsciously trying to hide your bump. Then one day you wake up and its like you've doubled in size over night. There's definitely no denying it now, that's definitely a pregnancy bump and as more and more people acknowledge it you start to feel more at ease and slowly but surely you begin to wear your bump with pride and beam every time someone makes reference to it!

 

Pregnancy Related Symptoms

Word of warning, this is also the trimester when head aches can kick in which swiftly turn into migraines...Ouch! And if you are unfortunate enough to fall ill with a cold, settle in for the long run as your not aloud to take ANYTHING for it trust me I researched every website on the internet and the verdict... Nada! Heartburn... wow never had that before and really hope it doesn't return. Can keep you up all night pacing your living room floor as standing seems to be the only time it eases off. Peeing for England, they should put this one in the Guinness book of records. Rushing to the loo as the baby sits heavily on your bladder upon reaching the loo waiting for that oh so satisfying sense of relief as the floodgates of Niagra Falls begin to open and the disappointment that follows when nothing but a mere trickle comes out...(TMI) what the !?!?!? Insomnia... oh the joy! Thank god for Facebook, Google and Youtube at 3am!

But the weirdest and most wonderful of all is when you feel your baby move for the first time, they relate this to the feeling of butterflies... cute right? A few weeks later these are swiftly followed by a very obvious kick! Now that's weird and brings back your first moments of 'oh there really is a baby in there' and now  'oh my god its moving'. A friend of mine admitted that when she felt her baby move for the first time, it felt almost Alien only she was too scared to admit this to her friends in fear of being looked upon as weird! Let me tell you, there is nothing weird about considering your baby is an Alien after all you haven't yet met the bundle of joy and no scan picture can ever really mentally prepare you for that so when the movement starts it really does start to hit home that you have another being alive and growing and moving inside of you... Now try getting your head around that!

 

Final Thoughts

And/or potential words of advice, be prepared for your friends that now want to share with you all the horrors of being pregnant including the reality of child birth (in their experience) Wait for the weird and wonderful reactions when you announce it to your friends and family. And then there are the very odd and inappropriate questions that may be asked for example 'did you consider an abortion?' and 'are you happy?' Be prepared to adjust in your relationship with your other half, at times your crazed hormones take on a form of their own and your other half seems to be having the same pregnancy related symptom. It can be hard, but try to be aware and try to be patient, the both of you

With all that said and done and the 3rd Trimester waiting patiently in the wings and god only knows whats coming next, be conscious of the fact that you have been blessed with this gift and it will truly be the making of you with each passing day enjoy the moment of your baby growing, kicking and moving inside of you because this part of journey really does pass by ever so quickly. Take pictures, lots, write a journal, show off your bump and wear it with pride!

The Vintage Wedding Fair Chiswick https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/2/the-vintage-wedding-fair-chiswick Sugar and spice and all things nice. If you have ever considered a vintage wedding... STOP considering it and just DO it... that's my advice. After popping in for an hours workshop with the lovely Ruth owner at Festoon who showed us keen girls how to create our very own flower head crowns I had a little look round the Vintage Wedding Fair held at Chiswick Town Hall to see what delights I could find and I wasn't disappointed. The dresses OH the dresses I could try to describe them, but I'm afraid I would fail miserably to describe the exquisite and intricate detailing of these beautifully stunning one of a kind dresses. So, next time they pop up in town you'll just have to have a little nose yourself. 

 

But for now take a peek at this little beauty, the master piece that is my very first flower head crown!

Enchanted Evening Charity Event at The Richmond Hill Hotel https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/2/enchanted-evening-charity-event-at-the-richmond-hill-hotel I was absolutely delighted when asked to photograph the preparation and build up to the Enchanted Evening event which took place on Saturday 6th February 2016 hosted by Rachel Staggs at The Balcony. The event was held in support of three charities,  MIND, MacMillan and The Katie Piper Foundation. Three amazing and worthwhile charities you will agree. 

The main event included a drinks reception, 3 course dinner followed by casino, raffle and auction all with some pretty amazing prizes alongside thought provoking and moving speeches from some of the charities ambassadors. All this and more held in the splendor of the magnificent Ballroom at The Richmond Hill Hotel, accompanied by chandeliers and sparkling fairy lights, a venue worthy of the title to the event. 

With the help of many local businesses donating items towards the prizes and an array of creative artists giving up their time to offer services such as full make and hair, the event was tipped to be a grand success. 

Unfortunately for me I was unable to attend the evening, bump not permitting and fighting off yet another 'pregnancy' cold (oh the joy!)  but for further insight into the event take a look at The Balcony Facebook page.

Congratulations and huge well done goes to Rachel and Sacha who worked so hard to ensure the success of the event!

If you would like to show your support for these worthy charities, donations can be made direct to the fundraiser page.

You bump and me makes 3! https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2016/2/you-bump-and-me-makes-3 Hello world! it's been that long since my last post that I feel much has happened since. First off we welcomed the winter for a start (boo!) we welcomed the festive season (Yay!) and we welcomed the news of a little one on it's way... (eek!)

You never really know how you're going to feel when you fall pregnant. Every woman is different, I had a friend once tell me that she knew instantly and when I say instant I mean the moment biology of the human reproductive system took place. How is this possible?! For me I had absolutely NO IDEA! Not until the penny dropped when I realised that I was potentially a few days late - oops! It's one of those small details in my world that goes onto my list of 'I'll get round to that at some point' and that moment abruptly happened as I was rushing off out the door on my way to work ... AH! light bulb moment followed swiftly by some under breath cursing having to run back up two flights of stairs.

The inevitable was staring right back at me, a curiously small plastic instrument with two undeniably bold red lines.  Hmm interesting...! The rest of the journey to work was a blur after that, driving in my car reaching for my non existent bump and saying out loud 'I'm going to be a mum' over and over... just to be sure it would sink in. 

Two days later I decided it was time to share the news with the other half, I had put it off for a few reasons, not because I thought he'd have a nervous breakdown or anything. No, nothing as dramatic as that. After all we're both the other side of 40 (almost for me) so it's not like we're a pair of kids playing house. I simply wanted the moment to be special and memorable, so I wrapped the test into a box big enough to hold a pair of shoes and presented the gift as 'a little something to put a smile on your face after a long week at work' sat back admiring my genius and patiently waited until the look of confusion faded and that knowing grin crept over his face. 

(I should point out that the picture in this post has not been enhanced in any way (lol) this is Mikee's idea of trying to out do me in the 'bump' dept.)

So, not one to be known for doing things by half, or by the book for that matter (how ungodly boring would that be!) 2016 will bring the pitter patter of tiny feet and I cannot wait, my camera will be on overdrive, I'll need to invest in more hard drives and no doubt I'll turn into one of those crazed mothers that has to announce to Facebook every time their child so much as hiccups!! 

Apologies in advance...!

 

But for now... It's just You (Mikee) bump and me, which makes a soon to be 3!

Bohemian Bridal Photo shoot a sneak peek https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2015/10/bohemian-bridal-photo-shoot-a-sneak-peek My first love has always been 'Fashion editorial' photo shoots... I love the freedom you have to orchestrate and create this magical piece of editorial art. Across these past few months I have been working on my latest project for the Bohemian Bridal photoshoot. Putting together a team of creative artists, finding the right dresses and headpieces, creating props but more importantly finding a model with a look that was a complete fit for what I am was aiming to create. I have to say that I was truly blessed with the most amazing team. 

 

With all that said and done,  I am really excited to show you a sneak peek of what we created from that day. When I first took these set of images I absolutely in an instant,  fell in love... LOVE and LIVE for these moments.  I knew where I wanted the light to fall and the composition I wanted to capture the model in and without a shadow of a doubt I knew exactly how I was going to edit them and so here they are...

 

 

You can view behind the scenes footage from the photo shoot here.

Why I love this photo... https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2015/9/why-i-love-this-photo Can you guess? ... Sometimes a gentle bit of coaching is required to help couples not only get into pose but help them to relax into a position that might sometimes feel or seem awkward to them (beautiful from where I'm standing) but patience is a virtue as they say so as a photographer this is a skill you MUST adhere too. 

In picture 1 is where the gentle nudge came in and then (wait for it) Ta-dah!... in picture 2 there's no denying the chemistry or that knowing recognition between these two... SO adorable, SO worth the wait!

Long lost friends, beaches and love in the air https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2015/8/long-lost-friends-beaches-and-love-in-the-air A few weeks back you may remember the sneak peek blog post of Jez and Kate where I told you the story of finding my long lost friend? Ok so it wasn't quite that dramatic, thanks to good old Facebook Jez and I have been in contact for a few years now. But, we hadn't seen each other in something like 20 odd of them :) 

Until now that is... not only did I get to see Jez again after all this time, catch up and reminisce about the good old days, but I got to meet his better half Kate and gorgeous son Ryan, whilst strolling through the sunny gardens and beaches of Bournemouth. 

Here are just a few pic's from that day.

There's a moment in every couples photoshoot where the intensity of being far too sensible and serious becomes too much to bear YAY my favourite part of the day... smiles, giggles and lots of laughter! I love this part its when you see them both start to relax and just have fun with it!

So after hearing that Jez and Kate never quite managed a first dance on their wedding day something to do with taking the celebrations of the day a little too far a little too early (Ahem... Jez!) Well then, no time like the present! When you unexpectedly ask a couple to dance minus the music, this is what happens :)

And they lived happy ever after... THE END!

Actually not quite the end just yet, there is a Part 2 But you have to wait until the end of the week for that one :)

The stuff that dreams are made of... https://www.lovemissd.co.uk/blog/2015/7/the-stuff-that-dreams-are-made-of Aww I do love a happy ending and the quest for 'true love' is never a path that runs smoothly. There is a quote along the lines of “If she's amazing, she won't be easy. If she's easy, she won't be amazing. If she's worth it, you wont give up' from the late great man himself Mr Bob Marley! 

It was more a situational circumstance or should I say locational one for Mandy and Simon, who struck up a relationship the day before Simon was due to leave behind the fresh country air and head off to create a new life for himself in the big smoke... Great timing eh! (ugh don't you just hate it when that happens!)

Who knew then that a long distance relationship of some oooh 200+ miles would bring us to this day. Fast forward 4 years later and these lovely two have set up home in London with their gorgeous (now) family of four... (Queue sighs!) 

Aww I do love a happy ending, and was over the moon for these two, I can't think of a more deserving couple :) 

 

 

'When we met we knew, we were kindred souls.

People like us only come around once every blue moon,

and I could not tell you enough how dazzling it was to know that for that night

the universe wore a dress the colour of indigo'
