Say hello to Pip!
Pip doesn't like having her picture taken - this one took lots of treats! But, she's the cutest thing and at home, she's the best thing to photograph!
We live in
Cumbernauld, with my husband and our daughter - she's 14. Our house is modest but lovely - a proper 1990s house with the original pine wood window frames, skirting boards, doors and staircase. When we moved in, I thought about painting them and then realised I loved the wood! After much thinking, talking and searching, we realised that mid-century G-Plan furniture was perfect and now we have an abundance of it! The bedrooms are filled with trusty old IKEA though - who else ever sees bedrooms?!
In my loft,
I have a darkroom. I love analogue photography because there's so much anticipation, waiting at least hours to see if your images came out . The most calming place in the world - for me - is a silent darkroom; it's where I do all my best thinking!
I was born
in the 1980s and have an affinity to 90s music. My favourite bands are still The Charlatans (I fell in love with them when I was 14) and James (I hated them until around 2012). One of my favourite things to do is go see them live with the hubby - Paris, London, Manchester, who cares where? Every trip is an adventure!
I'm totally a bookworm
and have too long a favourite list to list them all but they include: The Secret History by Donna Tartt, The Crimson Petal and the White and Under the Skin by Michel Faber, The Collector and The Magus and The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles... The Gruffalo and We're Going on a Bear Hunt are up there too!
My hair is
changed often - it frequently cycles between blonde, red and brown before starting all over again. For now, we're back to blonde!
I'm a Tea Jenny...
... and I drink tea all the time. There's nothing better than tea and Rice Krispie cake! Ok, so Michelin Star restaurants are way better but they're a rare treat (if you haven't managed to, try Raby Hunt, Tommy Banks, Andrew Fairlie, Studio and Tom Kitchin - I think they're my faves!)
This is me dancing onstage with James at The Royal Albert Halls in London. I'm in the yellow jumpsuit, with a jumper around my waist and long hair! The person I'm holding is my husband. Definitely one of the best things that's ever happened to me!
