You can go your own way…

Its been a year. nearly. I can’t believe I haven’t drawn or posted for a year to all you lovely people.

In that year I quit my job to focus on my own business, spent a whole summer photographing people in love and editing weddings.

I crashed completely burnt out in October with no idea what I felt or wanted. Went to a party, met a boy… you know how it goes. Fell in love and now, here I am.

Altogether changed and altogether more focused than ever. Completely in love with the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. Because when you know, you know. And I believe that now.

Here are some random snippets of my year, from rainy London streets to photoshoots in the woods, red lips and taking baby steps into drawing again.

This year I have big plans for my little corner of the world here but more on that very soon…

You see the world in black and white…

Sometimes it’d good to take things back to basics. Pen and paper. Ink and water. To stop looking at things in colours or shades. Or ‘maybes’ or ‘one days’. To just take people for who they are in the moment that you have them and nothing more. Seeing things in black and white makes me stronger than ever. Makes me less fooled when people have no intention of sticking around.

I remember when this year began and someone told me that it was going to be unlucky. That the number 13 was set to change things up for everyone. Well I wish I knew then what I know now. Because now is beautiful. Now is worth everything that changed this year, its worth all the so called mistakes and lessons. I am exactly where I’m meant to be.

Summer time round here seems to be getting a bit hazy, and a little bit slow. Photography adventures are cut short by the sun setting too quickly. And so its time to settle back into my desk with my paintbrush! This year has changed me, broken me down, built me up and taught me so much that if I didnt have all of this I wouldnt know where to begin. I’m so thankful to be able to say that now, more than ever I know where I’m heading.

I’m so lucky to have all of you here to share this with, and I appreciate all of your lovely comments! Here’s a few pics from recent Grace & the Heart photoshoots, with a bit of a Doll with a Frown twist.

It’s all I used to believe.

These past few weeks of summer have been beautiful! Bike Rides in fields, spending time with friends, lots of photoshoots, taking a road trip to Bournemouth with Steph, singing along to Matt Nathanson & Fleetwood Mac with the windows down, walking along the beach and being free. Sunshine and freedom makes everything better and its so good to take the time to adventure every once in a while. Now I’m home again it helps me see things in a new way, reminds me why I love the things that I do, and the things that I want to change.
