Photography has been a joy to me for a long as I can remember (a 110 Kodak Pocket Instamatic camera for my fifth birthday!) and I hope now to actually learn and understand the art of it.

I live on the fringes of the Lake District (England's lakes!) in a small hamlet, although I am from New Zealand. Having had the pleasure of living in some of the most beautiful places in the world, I am usually in awe of the wonder of nature and photographing it is something that I am aiming to do...

However at the moment I am caught up in the lives of the little people - three children and two step children (12 and under). Add in my fab man and our business to run, life is pretty manic but good. Thankfully my children are patient subjects and capturing their day to day lives is a privileged pleasure.

I am finding Blip a wonderful way to gain encouragement and insight. Also importantly for me it is giving me a few minutes a day to call my own (Mummy's blipping - leave her alone!).
