I’m not really one to post a lot about my personal life but recently my mum, who suffers from C.O.P.D, has been extremely unwell in hospital and I have come close to losing her on a few occasions! It really is an awful feeling to watch someone that means so much to you fade away. The worse thing is, that is the only thing you can do….watch. All control is taken away from you and you feel so useless. Its also very exhausting having to appear to be strong, when inside you are falling apart. I have had lots of love and support from family and friends but still felt very alone. All I can do is stay positive and be thankful that each day I go to the hospital I get to see her again.
After getting home from a hospital visit one recent evening, I thought I’d look through some pictures I had of her to cheer myself up and remember her happy, smiling and carefree. As I logged into my computer and started to look, to my horror I discovered that I didn’t have any!!! The thought that she may no longer be with me and I didn’t have any images of her was just heartbreaking.
I’m happy to say that she is now starting to recover and once she is up on her feet I will be snapping away and also arrange a mother and daughter portrait session.
At the beginning of 2013, I decided I would only photograph weddings, but with recent events and my own personal experience, I have decided that I will again offer elegant couture portraits!
I think its important to cherish, love and have memories of those close to us because one day they may not be here!
