How to cope when you’re not overly confident
Mothers, why do you get up early every morning when your family stay in bed sleeping? When it comes to your household, there are definitely easier jobs; jobs that bring less heartache and worry. So why did you choose to look after your little ones? What pushes you onwards? What makes you pause at the doorway to their bedrooms and keep battling on through the weary days?
The answers obvious – motherhood isn’t just about cooking chef-like meals or keeping a tidy house. It’s about love; feeling the heartbeat of the person you’re raising; unconditional love forever.
By nurturing your little one, by sharing your life experiences, you set them on the path to happiness and resilience.
Motherhood, the never ending adventure, is about watching your baby grow and blossom from helpless baby to bouncy toddlers determined to prove their independence. At times, you might be pushed to the brink of insanity, but in the quiet of the evenings, when your amazing little human has gone to bed, frustrations forgotten you’ll look back at these days as the best moments of your life.
Yes. Parenting is hard, but it’s also the most rewarding job in the world.
Photography understands this truth, photos speak from the heart, and booking your portrait session on the Isle of Wight is more than just getting new photos. It’s something bigger than pretty pictures, you invite others to experience the love you feel for your family. I truly believe photography is valuable gift that I dare to say is vital to every family portrait session.

As you all know by now, Sophie and myself were invited to a photo shoot by the very lovely and talented Amanda Herbert.
Amanda not only made us feel comfortable and relaxed about the whole experience, she also offered refreshment and breaks when needed recognising her subjects needs and acting accordingly. Amanda knew I wasn’t overly confident in front of the camera but we chatted and by magic she secretly caught me!!
Whilst we were chatting she was luring me into a relaxed face then got the shot she was after ❤ With Sophie, Amanda was excellent and could appreciate the trials of working with a curious and bubbly 7 year old. Amanda worked her well and stayed professional throughout the whole shoot making excellent use of natural light. We really enjoyed our time and Can thoroughly recommend her to people looking for portraits.
