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

My depression story.

This year for the first time I was diagnosed with depression, I can honestly say I’ve never quite felt anything like it, I had a few days of the baby blues when my daughter was born, but that finished pretty much as quickly as it started.  This was different and so much more.

I’d had a lot going on, the realisation that my daughter may need some help and a tough start to the year,  I knew I felt really low by March. I didn’t want to leave the house or the salon. They were my ‘safe places’. The people there wanted to see me. I started to pull my eyelashes out and hair (called trichotillomania) something I hadn’t really done excessively since I was a teenager.

I wouldn’t go out with friends, I wouldn’t  sit outside with friends when I saw them and have a coffee, I mean why would they want to sit with me?  I also got to the super market one day and it took me 20 minutes to be able to get out of the car.  My friends at work came to me one day and said they were really worried about me. T…

It’s Official

Today was the day we met with Camhs for the follow up appointment with Elizabeth. We officially have a daughter diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder, Aspergers. 15 months after we started our journey.

I’d had a meeting with them a couple of weeks ago so I did know the diagnosis already, but I’d asked that they talk to her with me as she is completely in denial about it all, and thinks it is in my head. If I’m truly honest getting the official diagnosis hit me hard, although I’ve thought it for years being told it for absolutely sure was upsetting.  I truly hope at some point she realises that the whole process we’ve gone through is out of love for her, wanting to help other people understand her and at times our family dynamics. Why she behaves as she does in certain situations and why I react in certain situations that may seem harsh or bossy, or nit picking. Generally at these times I can see something brewing and I’m trying to get on top of her reactions or behaviour before i…

Autism, ASD, Asperger

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 …
