International Women’s Day 2019

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of talking with the Ipswich Women in Business for International Women’s Day 2019. Surrounded by amazing women, I was grateful to share a little of my story and my thoughts on the level of connection you can achieve when you remove your mask and consciously step in to […]

How Family Portraits Boost Your Child’s Self Esteem

One of the hidden but powerful aspects of family photography that moms and most photographers rarely consider is how it can help us raise children with stronger confidence in their own worth and abilities. Psychologists and experts have done some work in recent decades exploring the link. A revealing study was conducted in 1975 with […]

Autumn Family Photography on Location

Autumn is on the way and that means gorgeous afternoon sunlit family photos, without the oppressive heat of Summer, are almost upon us!

Why my Business is leaving Social Media

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of being screamed at. Everywhere you look today it seems, there are people and brands only too keen to spell out exactly what they think and what they want you to know, in the loudest terms possible. As the volume continues to climb, I begin to […]

Jenny’s Family Photography In The Studio

Karron’s Family Photography Out On Location

This year I want to […]

She’s 4 Years Old!

Salt Mama Studio is officially 4 years old! I think she’s been a part of me for a lot longer though – probably as long as I’ve been a Mama and I’ve loved every part of this wild ride. I’m incredibly proud of her (uh huh, my business is a “her”) and grateful to everyone […]

Unique Photography with Salt Mama Studio

The challenge of something new

The freedom to create something new is the driving force behind the Magic of Christmas sessions. At the end of each year I say I’m not doing them again…..but come August the following year, I’m thinking about what’s next. What’s different? What hasn’t been seen before? (And I do them again…lol) I love being able […]
