Any Other Photo {Lucy and Phil}

My thought process when putting together Lucy and Phil’s AOP was along the lines of the following – ‘oooh, scrumptious dress…NICE pink tie, mmm I love those orange wedges…HOW excited does Turquoise Lady look?!’ and then BAM.   Have you ever seen as content a bride as Lucy? That relaxed hand holding her (awesome) bouquet, [...]

The friend that made me me – Emma

The first piece that Emma wrote for us was for International Women’s Day. It was brilliant. And when she sent it in, she mentioned that she had a ‘friend that made me me’ piece that she was working on, if we were still interested in them. Of course I replied and said that we would [...]

Jobs For The Girls – Head of Sudan Team at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

I first came across Caroline when she sent us this post for International Women’s Day.  I got slightly over-enthusiastic about it, and received a lot of mockery from my nearest and dearest as a result.  You see, they know it’s a job I’d love to have.  And whilst I am also a civil servant, working [...]

Two hearts.

If the cliche is true, if home really is where the heart is, then I currently have two homes. Or two hearts. Or something. That sounded more eloquent in my head than it looks typed here. My home is here in KL. It’s where I live my life, it’s where I am settled. It makes [...]

The Meaning of Marriage

Four years in, I still find it hard to pin down the point of marriage.  At the time, it felt like the right thing to do, like something that I wanted, and so I said yes.  But, being honest, it’s hard to make clear, in day-to-day terms, what the difference is between being married and being [...]

Weekend Wonderings

I found this blog post via the inimitable Emma Case’s Twitter account. It is a kind of wonderful that I don’t really have the words to describe. And though on the surface it is about wedding photography, really, it isn’t. Enjoy, readers. Happy Weekend. Hello there, friend. Although we don’t know each other, we have [...]

Any Other Photo {Laura and Chris}

This Any Other Photo has been scheduled in for a few months now. We booked it in, with much excitement from both sides, and then waited. We knew it would be a good one. We knew that Laura would write something sane, and wonderful, and that the image would be a beaut. Then all of [...]

London in Spring, My Mother and Life Lessons

This was a long winter.  Admittedly, I went on holiday right in the midst of it, so I’m not complaining per se, more observing.  It’s difficult to complain without being lynched when part of said winter was spent lounging in a bath on a balcony.  But it was long.  Cold, dark, and long. And now it’s over.  [...]

A very long and lovely story

This post from Siobhan is the perfect commute companion – it’s long (Siobhan’s submission email was headed ‘My VERY long story’), it has lots of super cute pictures and it is tug-on-your-heartstrings LOVELY. It’s a good old-fashioned boy meets girl tale, but with transatlantic distances, a cult and a bet involving a kitten. What more [...]

I’m not going to write a huge introduction to this piece. I don’t think it needs it, and I don’t know what I’d say. I just want to say that if any of you feel like the writer of this piece did, don’t. You don’t need to. I hope her story explains why….   I’ve [...]
