I'm Gemma - Mother & Photographer from Cumbria in the UK. I have wanted to write a photography blog for some time, filled with the very essence of childhood, nostalgia & the beauty of nature. The leading inspiration behind my writing is the photographs I take of my children and the wonderful countryside & our coast nearby.
Inspired by my children and their adventures, the countryside & the coast, I began writing different poems and short prose to accompany the photographs I was taking. Eventually this led to a creative narrative of my photography and the natural world. My journal follows our journey through the seasons, the places we visit, the wildlife we encounter and the ever changing landscapes. In my journal I talk about the experiences of childhood and the importance of nature for our children growing up.
I would like to offer photography advice, tips for families taking photographs, editing & styling. As a family we love to craft and I would like to include a select few of our favourites for you. You'll also find nature prose and poetry weaving its way through my posts and a huge amount of love for our natural world. I hope you'll follow along.
Lots of love Gemma x
