An update (and a scarf)

The pictures are pretty self-explanatory... I made a scarf... Mainly under my mother's influence. She's a knitting queen and her jumpers/mittens/hats made me want to create my own!

If you're think about making anything with wool... I must warn you, you need a LOT of patience and wool can be quite expensive!

Anyway, changing the subject... I started working for The Body Shop. I like it there, the company's morals and ethics are great and I enjoy raising money for charity... This year The Body Shop are supporting TCT (Teenagers with Cancer Trust) and I've been shocked at how much customers are actually willing to give (shocked in a good way... mainly)

This means that my photography has been somewhat neglected although I do still want to do everything my webpage states... (wedding photography and family portraits). I am finding it very hard to market myself. I have no idea where to start! I made a facebook page but the only people that see/care about that are my friends and family! I made a webpage but this is attracting mainly friends and family too. I want to make leaflets and adverts but obviously this costs money and I haven't been paid from The Body Shop yet. 

I think a lot of it is to do with people showing people photographs. After Holly's wedding I got 3 people asking about it. But none of them really worked out (God I sound depressing) However, it's not all doom and gloom because there is a lot of cake in our house and I've been eating it all!


  1. I'm so in love the your scarf––the colors you used are gorgeous! I hope everything works out with the photography business you're trying to get going. I for one am completely obsessed with your photography. ;)

  2. Awh Megan that is so nice to hear! Thank you :-D xx
