Photoshoots and behind the scenes.

I love what I do. 

Over Christmas I was lucky enough to be involved in 2 photoshoots, one with Fiona Millington Photography  and the other with Steve Bond Images .

I love the variety of working on photoshoots, helping to create the look, then observing and tweaking throughout the shoot to see the best possible results. Whether it's a portrait shoot where I am helping the client feel amazing about themselves or a product or beauty shoot, I love them all. 

The above images are part of the shoot I was involved in with Fiona Millington Photography
We aimed to create a natural carefree look and I think you'll agree the photos are beautiful. The Clients looked relaxed in front of the camera.

This was followed by a 2 day shoot with Steve Bond Images the object of this was the create hairstyles and different looks to advertise my salon Tip Top Hair Design and some of the Make up that we sell. We had 2 fabulous models Helen from Lovebirds Vintage that we have used before and Marine Zeldita, My sister was assistant photographer for one of the days gaining insight into different
lighting techniques and modelling poses.
We were also joined by Make up artist Katie Morley  who did a great job too.
The beautiful hats that were worn in some of the images were designed and created by Mandy from Natty Titfers Millinery, she has designed some simply stunning hats for both weddings and the races, or for something a little different check out her steampunk range.

The above  photos were taken by Fiona Millington Photography

You know
My daughter.  13years old and Perfect. 
Quirky, beautiful, caring, loyal, nervous, friendly, lonely, loving, unusual, thoughtful. PERFECT. 
I've always described my daughter as quirky, or her actions as a lizzisms. 
The start of our journey. Lizzi had some unusual behaviour at infant school,  when she was about 5 years old, she rocked constantly on her chair "went off into her special place" unfortunately we didn't have a very knowledgeable teacher, she wanted to refer to camhs but made it sound as though we were in trouble, and to be honest we panicked. She said some things that shocked me and we moved her school.

Fast forward a few years to the last year of primary school where Lizzi anxieties started to manifest, particularly with bus journeys.  The first major problem was the school residential trip which she was really looking forward to. But a few days before she started getting very upset about the upcoming bus ride.  A few children had mentioned to …

Our continued journey 
After our psychiatric  appointment I was feeling quite positive things were moving forward and we were getting answers. I thought we'd get the support at school we needed but that wasn't to be the case, our psychiatrist wanted the school to refer her for cognitive psychometric testing however funding was an issue. So Dr Balal referred her himself.  
School This coincided with a particularly touch time at school, there was a number of bullying instances before half term with a few different children and I felt Lizzi was retreating into herself, she was quiet, more anxious, more highly strung and I was worried.  After half term I struggled again with getting her into school. 
We had been thinking of moving her to  Manor House School  for her GCSEs, an independent private school where their ethos is 'unlocking potential.  My husband my sister and I talked to Lizzi about the possibility of moving schools for this, she was so cross! I believe this was do…

It's been a while

Life Blimey!!! So it's been a while since I wrote on my blog, to be honest it's been a time full of highs and lows, I've kept thinking I must write but just haven't been able too. There has been lovely family meals and a great family and friends Christmas. There has been holidays,  fun days, dog days and downright tricky days. 
My beautiful daughter is quirky in the most glorious way. We've been referred to camhs for her as they're questioning high functioning autism (formally Aspergers), she certainly has some key behaviours, whether it is that or not, we need at times a little support and understanding with her. Academically she's absolutely fine, but social she's a few years behind, and sometimes that can cause issues.  We are currently 22weeks on a waiting list to see the correct department and they've said I could be another 30!  My advice is if you have any concern with your children push for help early!  
As a family we've had many issue…
