Reflecting on 2014

It is hard to describe how my 2014 went. It was amazing, I had a lot of exciting things happening but on the other hand my confidence was terribly low, I was struggling to be positive and brave. Entering 2015, I see it as an opportunity to kick myself in the bum and start believing in myself.

I started the year selling my first set of cards.

I behind-the-scenes photographed an exciting fashion shoot in Manchester.

I decluttered my studio.

I finally launched this website to give my blog, shop and portfolio a home.

I launched a brand new collection of cards and prints.

I was hired to photograph the lovely Hollywood Ball.

And finally, I managed to finish all 4 commissions in few months ready for Christmas!

I hope you had a great 2014 and an even better 2015!
