Hey to all my cyber space homies! 😉 It’s been a year since my last blog post and so much has happened since then. My intention was to keep plodding along with sharing my photographic journey with you guys, but my body just couldn’t keep up with the sudden change when I found out I was pregnant in June last year 🙂
I’m so sorry for my internet absence, but rest assured that I’m back….my images are back….and my blog is back too – whoop whoop!
It’s been a crazy year filled with heaps of changes but it feels so good to be communicating with you all again. My daughter, Hannalee was born in February this year and now that she’s almost five months old, I’m feeling myself again. To be completely honest I didn’t have any material prepped as soon as I found out that I was pregnant. I felt like I needed to embrace pregnancy whole heartedly with both the ups and downs. It was really tough in the beginning as my husband and I had no idea what we were doing (being first time parents and all) and so the baby was in control of us. Now, its the complete opposite – we’re in control of her 🙂
So, besides taking the odd snaps and sharing them on Instagram and interacting with a couple other social media platforms (while breast feeding/pumping), I’ve been pretty silent on my blog. Those crucial first few months were spent snuggling, losing sleep and getting to know my little kitten.
I was a little fearful in returning to blogging after being away for so long and felt like I’d lost my momentum. For some reason I kept avoiding blogging – dwelling on whether I would be seen or not right now. I kept thinking about what my ‘come back’ post would look and read like and if I’d still have you all as my support system. So, I threw caution to the wind and decided today that I really wanted to share with you where I’m at.
My love for photography continues and so the images you’ll see below were taken at the Mayfield Lavender Farm in Banstead, just outside of Central London. It was my very first visit and it was absolutely amazing. Acres and acres of beautiful Lavender have been planted which seems to be a popular visitor attraction during the summer (as that’s when the Lavender starts to bloom – towards the end of June). It’s simply breathtaking. The images were taken using my Canon EOS 1200D and my 24-70mm lens. Enjoy!
I thought I’d end with an image of myself to once again thank you all for your support and kind words over the past year and for being so sweet, it seriously means everything. It feels damn good to be back!
Peace and love,
