5 Things About Me You Can See In My Pictures... & Farlie Frames #7

5 things about me that you can see in my work...

1) My favourite colour is white. 

Call it my Essex girl upbringing! I love white. I wear a lot of white, I have 3 drawers of white tops. Almost every wall in my home and every home I've ever decorated is some shade of white. My bedsheets are white.  I love a lot of scandinavian monochrome design. My fantasy "Grand Designs" build would be one of those enormous white minimalist box houses. All my studio set ups centre around a very strong white theme and all my lifestyle/location work uses a lot of overexposure to bring as much white in to pictures as possible.

2) I like space. Dislike clutter. 

You'll see a lot of negative space in my pictures. I like how it focuses the subject and creates drama. I also like to live in space. We live very far from my husband's work to enjoy a larger home. We chose village life to see and feel space around us as much as possible. I never feel calmer than staring out to sea and I like to keep the house as decluttered as possible.

3) I love being outside.

Country girl. Brought up outside. In woods. With horses. Walking the dog. I walk whenever possible with the kids. I exercise just as much to be outside as to be fit. Hence soooo many woods pictures.

4) Always prefer simplicity over style and natural over intentional.

I wear minimal make-up, I think faces should look like faces. It's always my preference on clients too. I'm not high fashion but I do like natural textures in photos and my clothes. I like unposed. Gummy over-smiled smiles are the best.

5) Variety is the spice of life, I'll mostly have a go at anything. 

When this photography business got up and running and I wasn't necessarily that good at it (by my own standards of where I wanted to be with it) I took a big deep breathe and decided the only way I going to get where I was going was to be ok with being average or even bad at things. Because that's the only way you get good at stuff. If you won't let yourself try things and be a beginner you'll never get to be great at anything. Since I decided this I've got good at a few different things I never thought I would be. And so I say I allow myself to say yes a lot. Ergo... A blog with with photographs of everything from babies to flowers to landscapes to people to whatever else will be next.

So there you have it... A little share about me and how it goes in to my work!
