Planning your photoshoot – where to start?

So you know you need some professional photographs to elevate your online presence: “I want to update my website and grab some photos for Facebook and Instagram…” And you know you’ll have to get in front of the camera: “Oh and some headshots maybe…” So what’s the next step?

Clothes maketh the (wo)man?

Here are pictures of Riley in pink looking and being Riley.  And there are pictures of Riley not in pink looking and being Riley.  They’re clothes, not a description of her preferences and personality.  Their function is not dependent on her gender!

On the success of others…

Do you have a few of those things that you’ve hated yourself for doing all your life and have wanted to change or maybe accept? As I reflect on my 40th birthday tomorrow (yup, 40 with a toddler – that was always my white picket fence dream… erm not…) As I reflect (oh – but...

(not) Labelling gender challenge

So I challenge you to replace the words girl and boy in your vocabulary for a day with kid, or child or a gender neutral equivalent.  For extra bonus points, listen for it in others and either a) rephrase in your head or b) have a discussion on the impact it may have. (And why...

Skating in three dimensions…

Decided my skating whilst baby wearing skills are not skate park ready so grabbed the camera on my way out the door – its like a magic pass that lets you stay in the action without wearing wheels.
