I wanted to have a page where I have all my gatherings in one place - it something I am so proud of and something that brought me such peace and joy!  I'll give you a bit of background...

When I was on maternity leave with Jack back in 2014, we lived in a beautiful village on the outskirts of the Cotswolds in England.  The summer of 2014 was honestly one of the most happiest times of my life.  I had a new baby, it was a warm summer and everything just felt good.  I started creating photos on instagram and made so many online friends whom I am still in contact with now.

Inspired by Instagram and all the beautiful images I was seeing everyday, I decided to go on a walk everyday and gather any fallen leaves, nuts, berries, sticks, flowers and make them into images.  I clearly remember going for a walk with Jack in the carrier, he would fall asleep and we would get home, I would put him in his bed and then I would rush downstairs and arrange the gatherings into images and take photos sometimes as quickly as possible because I knew he would be waking up any minute!  Other times I would do it while he was in his highchair having a snack or playing contently. (Not something that happened that often!!).

When I fell pregnant with Harry and then moved to South Africa I lost the routine of gathering and then got back into it and lost it again.  I am not a consistent person and I learning that this isn't a bad thing!! I ebb and flow like most of us!

Anyway - so I want to try get into gathering again and sharing an inspirational quote with it once a week or even once a month so I will see how I go.  In the meantime, here is my collection of Gatherings.  I hope they bring you happiness and inspiration!

If you want to collaborate in any way or want to buy some framed prints - pop me a message!
