10 random facts about me

10 random facts about me, so that you can start to get to know the girl behind the camera!

1)      I’m the youngest of 3 children.

2)      My sister and I were both born on Friday the 13th.  Oooh, spooky!

3)       I love Swansea!  I moved here in 2000 from Kent to study at Swansea Uni and never left.  Classic story of girl meets boy really.  I met my husband a few months after graduating and there was no leaving then.  I can’t imagine living anywhere else now, as far as I’m concerned Swansea has everything you could want or need!

4)      I sometimes feel like the perseid meteor shower is my birthday present from the universe!  Hmm, does that make me sound a bit self-important?!  Well, either way, I love heading out to the beach and watching the shooting stars.  In fact, I wished for my son on one of those stars.

5)      I absolutely loved being pregnant.  I loved feeling my babies kick and squirm and especially loved feeling them have the hiccups!  I read everything I could about pregnancy and birth and hope to share some of that info on this blog.


6)      I am yet to make it through an episode of ‘One born every minute’ without crying.  Seriously.  And I hold my breath until I hear the babies cry when they take their first breath. 

7)      I have watched the Gilmore Girls more times than I should admit.  And Alias.  And Buffy.  I’ve just finished working my way through the Dawsons Creek boxset (thank you late-night-in-bed-feeding sessions!) but I have a feeling it’ll be one I come back to.  I love the comfort of watching these familiar series (serieseses?!).

8)      I call woodlice ‘Cheesy bugs’.  No idea why.  But everyone I grew up with calls them that too.  And I fully intend on teaching my children that that is what they’re called!

9)      I honestly worry that my baby brain will never go away.  I don’t think logically any more and it drives my husband mad!

10)       I blame my best friend from Uni for turning me into a coffee addict.  I never liked coffee or tea until she came along!  Now I can’t get going in the morning without a cup and I get a kicking headache if I do somehow miss my fix!  

“Oh, I can’t stop drinking the coffee. I stop drinking the coffee, I stop doing the standing and walking and the words putting-into-sentence doing”  - Lorelai Gilmore.

Maternity portrait session, Llangennith beach, Gower              Swansea maternity portrait photographer

I met Menna when we were both studying at Swansea Uni.  We had stayed friends via Facebook after we graduated but had only seen each other once since then.  So I was really excited to meet up and take her maternity photos for her.

We decided that a beach session would be a good fit for her and her husband Simon and she was really happy when I suggested Llangennith as this was where he proposed to her!  It was so nice to go to a place that had such meaning to them.

Menna had chosen a fab red dress for her session which helped create some striking images and when she changed into her stripy top we were able to create quite a different look which really showed off her gorgeous bump!

Photos of Baby Jones to follow soon!
