What’s it like being a photographer – with Claire Storey’s Photography
If you have come across my blog because you follow my instagram page then you probably have a keen interest in photography, or at least an interest in images being created and captured on film that tell a story. Perhaps you have your own Instagram page or blog or DSLR and you are taking photos of your children to capture the everyday. Then imagine that you turned that hobby into a job – imagine if you actually became a photographer. That’s exactly what Claire from Claire Storey’s Photography did. She had a dream, she had absolutely no photography background and was able to teach herself to become an acclaimed newborn photographer. Read More »
What’s it like being a blogger – with http://www.littlepaperswans.com To any new blogger, the suggestion that they could make money out of their little corner of the internet would probably leave us feeling impossibly shy. Because to begin with most of us will just tell you that we do this as a hobby, perhaps we […]
If you’re anything like our family Christmas is a mad dash between families trying to see everyone and spending as much time with everyone as you can. And this Christmas was no different. In fact it was even more special as it was Otis’s first Christmas. Read More »
Interview with an influencer and professional photographer
All the support I have had for this series of interviews has been overwhelming. Sometimes its hard to commit to an idea, because we cannot tangibly see how it is being received, but the unbelievable engagement I get, whether it be on my feed, through DM’s or wordpress site stats blows my mind. So just for you, I have an absolute treat. I have the pleasure of sharing with you one of my favorite accounts, her magical and illuminated feed will have you feeling all warm inside!Read More »
Something that I have long wanted to do and not yet found the time is to start is to vlog. This is not a recent desire, but one that goes all the way back to when I first discovered PixiWoo vlogging in their bedrooms about 5/6 years ago. I was training to become a makeup artist and they totally inspired me, however at the time I didn’t have the balls to do it. Now the vlogging is becoming a lifestyle for many, and some are able to earn enough to commit to it as a full time career, so its clear to see what a powerful media outlet in can be. Then I found this dynamic due, vlogging their way through their first year together I must admit I became a bit addicted to their vlogs.Read More »
If you follow my Instagram account you will know that I am a lover of Insta Stories, so when I hatched the plan to get some of my followers to come up with the next set of questions for the Instagram Interview Series, they didn’t disappointRead More »
With the risk of my Instagram stalker tendencies being exposed, there is one account that is always on my mind when I take an outdoor shot. Its funny, because I can literally remember thinking of her on all of the occasions I have taken these images.
This is the second in the Instagram Interview series where we take a closer look at some of my favorite and most inspiring accounts that I follow on Instagram. If you read my first installment with just.isla.and.i then you will know how much of a IG obsessive I am. I stalk many accounts on a daily basis but one of the accounts that I have been following since before I even changed my Instagram name to @homewiththebuckleys (it was previously my collage nickname!), since before I had discovered how to edit not using an Instagram filter and way before I even knew what a hashtag was, I followed and adored the beautiful photos of @sienna.and.iRead More »
It is no secret that I am an Instagram addict, I am an obsessive and a super fan. 12 months ago I posted my first picture in over a year, a picture of my pregnant 30 week baby bump! Little did I know 1 year later I would have over 1000 new followers and spend most of my spare time (my precious, limited, spare time), thinking, planning, posting and interacting with Instagram.

It is in this digital age of fast photography that we forget to get our images printed! Especially the Instagram community because we see our images so often, we share with our online community daily, and we forget that tactile photos are such a joy. Now photo books have been around for a long time, and I have used a few different companies, so when the opportunity to be a product tester for Saal Digital couldn’t wait.Read More »
