Make // Flower Crown Tutorial

I decided to make Busby a flower crown for our Tale of Two Skirts shoot over the weekend (I love a good prop in my photographs, especially on my kidswear shoots).

Make, Do and List // Week Six

I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog this week as we’ve been in Yorkshire visiting Nick’s parents – it’s been wonderful switching off technology and enjoying time outside. But here we are again! This week I have been:ReadingI’ve read a couple of books this week. After failing to take my Kindle on the Hen Do, I’ve made up for it by reading up here in Yorkshire. I’ve read the post-apocalyptic novella Crash by Michael Robertson, which was very  ...
