“Connect and Create”
It’s important to me that I bring people together. As a mum of four and a business owner, I know that motherhood and self employment can sometimes be lonely and it’s beneficial for you to put yourself first and make time to connect with others. I discovered that by meeting new people, connecting and also getting creative was a fantastic way to boost my wellbeing, get inspired and de-stress and I would love to share this with you. My mission is to create safe spaces for women and families to connect and re-charge. Family wellbeing is key to my story.
This is why I bring creative activities to my clients, friends and followers. I believe that creativity is beneficial for our health and through creativity we are able to express our individuality and release our true selves. Come along, meet some new friends, connect and get creative. A list of events are listed below.
If you have a unique and creative skill that you’d like to share please get in touch. I’d love to collaborate.

Come along to this beautiful event where we each will be making a beautiful Christmas Wreath for you to display on your front door throughout the festive season.

All materials are included. We will also be taking a break mid way for a 20 minute nature walk where you can join in with some mindful photography activities too.

This event is limited to 10 spaces.
Mindful photo walks in Bristol
Grabbing my camera and heading out for a walk is something I love to do and I know the psychological benefits this activity has on my own wellbeing.
I run mindful photography walks for anyone looking to take time out and connect with themselves and connect with nature. I love to share my photography expertise and skills with the local community and to encourage others to get out into nature and connect.
I love to see children, parents and families connecting with nature and each other through exploration and child led play. Bringing the camera along helps to focus the mind and get creative.
I also work with local schools and run nature connection photography workshops for children from 8 years and up. I believe that photography and nature can be combined to encourage children to connect with nature, explore and get creative whilst also having a profound effect on health and wellbeing.
If you’d like to work with me or are interested in finding out more info please contact me.

Why should I come on a mindful photography walk?
Do you want to feel calm, grounded and focused? Confident and in control? Combine the psychological and social benefits of walking with the pleasure of mindful photography.
Join me as we explore the beautiful gardens of Kingsweston Estate and Old Church Farm in Bristol. Learn how to be mindful of your natural surroundings and environment with the use of your camera and feel the positive benefits for yourself. I will also spend some time teaching photography basics, so you can get the most out of your photos.
Why is walking in nature good for you?
Spending time in nature boosts your mood, confidence and working memory. It also helps to relieve stress and anxiety, as well as getting your creative juices flowing. By the end of the walk, you’ll be brimming with photos ideas!
Learn to look Close
Photography encourages you to notice the small details: seeing ordinary, unusual and everyday objects in a new light. Look around and observe what grabs your attention. Take notice and look closely. Capture the image and the feeling – focus your mind.
Join me for more mindful photography tips over the coming season – and keep an eye on my blog for mindfulness exercises you can apply in your day-to-day life.
