Photography projects to work on over lockdown

How are you doing? This really wasn’t the start that we had hoped for in 2021, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel this time. 

We’ve just finished a full week of home-schooling and let’s just say I’m looking forward to that glass of wine later! I’m lucky that my boys are a little older (nearly 13 and 10) so are pretty self-sufficient, but I do feel like I have become their IT support!

I’ve had to hang my camera up for the third time in a year, and reschedule the shoots I had booked in (thank you to my lovely clients for being so understanding once again). It’s not so bad this time of year as Jan/Feb is my quieter season, I just hope things are back to normal by the time all of my mini sessions start at the end of March.

Here is a photo of my boys homeschooling back in March 2020 in the first lockdown, things haven’t always been that peaceful and serene I assure you!

If you’re trying to work and homeschool your children, then I expect you’re even more frantic and busy than you would be normally. You’re doing a great job! I know it’s hard when you feel like you’re juggling all the balls and not doing anything particularly well, but know that you’re doing brilliantly. Don’t forget to make some time for you too, remember you can’t pour from an empty cup.
If you’re like me, and have been forced to stop the majority of your work, you may be finding yourself with a bit more time on your hands (in between being IT support for the kids!)
Rather than clearing out yet another cupboard or watching more Netflix, why not take this time to finally do something with all of those lovely photos you take. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to create family photo albums or create a gorgeous gallery wall of your photos…well fear not, I’m here to help!
Below are some articles I’ve written with photography tips that you may find useful over the coming weeks & months

I’m about to start putting together a photo album myself, I’m a few years behind so I’m looking forward to finally getting more up to date with them! 
Stay safe and well,
PS. If you’re a photographer, I’m currently running  my 6 week Delight & Dream programme with a lovely group of photographers.
I plan to do another run of the programme before the summer, so make sure you sign up to my waitlist so you don’t miss out.
