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’d 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’d 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’s 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’m 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’s wonderful too. Especially when you get a bunch of lovely ladies and babies like these to photograph.
