Life doesn't actually go as planned 99% of the time. For example, this was supposed to be a cute picture of the three of us until my son decided he was hungry and tried to lean in for some food. 馃槅 I'm grateful that even though my plans don't often work out, they are plans with good people. Good people who love me well and always stand with me.


I put a lot of love on social media about my husband. I brag about him quite a bit. I'm sure there are plenty of you who wonder if I'm just doing it to look a certain way. (I don't blame you!) The truth is that I'm just incredibly grateful that he's.. Jake. He is everything I thought I'd never get in a guy. And I think that's why it's important to brag on him. I was single for four years straight before I met him. I truly lost hope that a guy existed that I'd become best friends with and build a life with. I was wrong and I couldn't be happier about that. I'm glad I didn't fully give up before I met this dude. This rad family was so worth the wait. 馃馃徏

#tbt to everyone鈥檚 favorite Disneyland pastime...the hotel pool.

#tbthursday to fun in the sun with these two. This was taken in Portugal last summer and I cannot wait to take more shots like this when we head off on our hols in the next few months. I really enjoy the challenge of shooting my own photos for this feed (even though the self portraits can be a bit frustrating/embarrassing/time consuming) but I what I most enjoy is taking photos of these two together - especially with a blue sky backdrop.

Even our busiest weekends are easier than slow week days because of this guy. I'm so grateful for a man who serves our family so well. He loves our baby just as well as I thought he would and I don't take that for granted. 鉂わ笍

This is the family photo that didnt make the cut. The 'before the photo' photo. And I love it just as much as the after photo. This is motherhood and I'm so blessed.

To be this carefree and happy as much as I can. To play as if I鈥檓 four years old with no fear. This is one of my goals to practice each day. And maybe... I鈥檒l capture it on camera. Of myself, of you or your friends. Try it out today: take a moment and think of something that makes you feel like this photo. If you can鈥檛 think of anything, get up right now from where you are, put on your favorite song and start dancing. If people watch you or ask what the heck you are doing, just tell them you needed a moment to feel free.

Two shoots, a year apart. What a difference a year can make. I don鈥檛 even recognise myself. Here鈥檚 5 pieces of advice I would have told my pre-baby self: 1) In a weeks time you鈥檙e about to go through the hardest time of your entire life, breathe, try and enjoy that tiny newborn and everything will be ok. 2) Each month does gets easier, enjoy the cuddles instead of doing the washing up 3) Please chill out 4) Why are you not going out every single evening and showering twice a day because you won鈥檛 be able to anymore 5) You鈥檙e about to love someone more than you ever thought you could, not straight away, but you will have a little human that makes your heart ache in every way possible.

Today was a really good day... The day I got to dip my toe in to family photography properly. With a family who weren't related to me, actual strangers willing to come on this exciting new journey with me.

What do you think?? Honestly... #familyportrait #familyphoto #newbornphotographylancashire #familyphotographylancashire #newparents #lydiate #lancashire #lovegetssweeter #capturingmemories #realfamilymoments

So a few weeks ago I got to shoot these lovely ladies for Gurgle magazine. For those of you who are fellow photographers or clients of mine, you might not know what I used to do before becoming a wedding photographer so I thought I鈥檇 take this opportunity to chat about it, for 8 years I worked at Time Inc art directing photo shoots for some of our best loved magazines, Marie Claire, Look and Now just to name a few, I worked with amazing brands to create content that was hopefully interesting but sold their product. I LOVED my job. When I fell pregnant it was so difficult as I knew I wanted to be near family but leaving that job was super hard. I鈥檇 already started my photography business so knew I had to take the leap of faith, move back to Yorkshire and believe in myself to make that succeed. It鈥檚 only now, almost a year after having Elle that I feel ready whole heartedly to throw myself back into work. Working for yourself is so damn hard, but if it means more time with my little girl then I鈥檓 in. I now get to shoot with so many wonderful people, mainly shooting the most special day in peoples lives but occasionally I get to enter back into that editorial, publishing world, just like today, and that鈥檚 wonderful too. Especially when you get a bunch of lovely ladies and babies like these to photograph.
The article is about hypnobirthing, are you for or against?

After nearly 7 months of fulltime overseas nomad travel we are going home. We have had a new home on average every 5 days since Oct 2017, and that has both had it's ups and downs about it.
I read a brilliant quote about 4 weeks before we made our decision to return to Aus, "there is a difference between giving up and knowing when you've had enough." We considered persisting with our self imposed travel timelines, but reality and expectation are two very different things.... and some lessons the road just teaches you. Things about yourself. About what you truly value. About what you neglected. And about how to better spend your time.
In some ways I feel like I have walked the walk of King Solomon's journey. Leaving comfort and privilege in pursuit of questions that need asking.
Questions that everyone should ask themselves at some point in life.
Questions about life and the status quo.
Questions like, "is there a better way to live?" "Is there an alternative way to spend my time?" " How can I live more boldly and freely?" And... I HAVE concluded that balance in every area is key to a more meaningful life.
I take great comfort knowing that King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, who had everything in the world, would still seek the answers to many of the questions that we also had.
This adventure has been true to our vision from the very beginning, and without it there could have been times where we wasted time. But our vision kept us anchored. We wouldn't ever do anything that didn't align with it. Our vision was always "togetherness and learning." The memories insurmountable. Lessons learned invaluable. Catalyst for change undeniable. Risks taken... un-regrettable. Now to begin the rebuilding of our life with the lessons we've learned. #thebestisyettocome
Oh and the best news... we're not even close to done with travel. We love it! Adore it! Already are dreaming and goal setting ways to achieve the long list of places we either couldn't get to or couldn't afford in this trip. So stay tuned... we may be grounded for a while... but in the meantime we'll be enjoy the very best of Australia.

I鈥檓 not a parent, but I鈥檝e been invited into many new parents鈥 homes to photograph them and their new bundle. It鈥檚 funny how different everyone handles their new reality. Sometimes new parents are laid back and seem to find their flow easily. More often than not, they鈥檙e overwhelmed and nervous. I mean, they鈥檙e literally responsible for keeping another human alive all of a sudden. Even if it鈥檚 not their first kiddo, they鈥檙e life will NEVER be the same again.
.
In all the differences in how people handle their change, one thing seems to be constant: this moment. The moment of total awe. Those little cheeks. The softest skin. The sweetest sense of just being present. To all those parents who have let me in to your little world to bottle this moment, thank you. My hope is that this helps you hold on to that moment. I hope that your photos help you to love your kiddos as they were, and for who they have become. 馃挆馃挆馃挆

Gosh I love this shoot with @coral.atkinson and her gorgeous family. We visited the amazing Brimham Rocks on Saturday on a rock climbing adventure which both her boys loved. Coral is the creator of @velveteen_babies a beautiful hand made nursery decor business. Also check out her Instagram feed for amazing nursery inspiration.

I always try to capture a little bit of everything during my family sessions. Of course everyone LOVES the perfect family photo with everyone looking and smiling BUT my favorites are always the little in-between moments that capture the true uniqueness of your family!
Which is your favorite??

I鈥檝e been off social media for a while while I work on my website & new client guide. Plus I鈥檝e been busy shooting some great sessions like this beautiful family

It was windier & colder than we all intended so these little girls spent most of the shoot in Mom & Dad鈥檚 jackets but I think it just adds to the charm 馃槉 #realfamilymoments

By now this construction scene is complete, and today a new house sits across from the Palmer's. But they can still hold the memories of when he was 3 and would wonder over every afternoon to dream up big adventures in the dirt piles with his bulldozer. . .

When I fell pregnant with Elle I did what most pregnant ladies do and researched everything and anything, how can i prepare for the birth, what I needed to buy, What should go in my hospital bag, the list goes on and on. My favourite way to do this was on @youtube. It was lovely to see other Mums chatting through their experiences with a cuppa. This is where I came across the wonderful @mrsemilynorris - Emily now has over 200K subscribers and I am one of them! Her videos are soooo good, with 3 boys she is definitely a pro at this parenting thing, her breastfeeding videos saved me in the early *crazy* newborn days. Without sounding too much of a fan girl I was beyond excited to get the chance to photograph Emily and her gorgeous family at their Essex home. I love this photo of her and husband Matt, apparently they couldn鈥檛 remember the last time they had one of just the two of them. #parenthood
