About me


Since you’ve managed to get this far, you’ll have probably read twice now that my name is Liz.

My actual name is Elizabeth which is far too posh for me, I think my mum thought I was going to marry a prince or something – bless her heart.

I am married though, his name is Barnaby. He’s not an actual prince but I do think he’s pretty hot which is basically the same thing really.

We’ve got some of those kids, contrary to what I tell my closest friends I do actually quite like them. I birthed 3 of them myself and my husband brought 2 along with him which, if my maths is correct, makes a total of 5. I know, right!

Did I ever plan to have 5 children? No, I did not. But would I change anything? Damn straight – I wish they’d stop eating everything and go to bed on time.

Jokes aside, they’re a good bunch of kids and we know how lucky we are to have each and every single one of them.

I couldn’t really do any of this if it wasn’t for all the support from my husband. He’s a great dad, a pretty good dishwasher emptier and he can make a mean spaghetti bolognese.

My husband also works in the wedding industry. He’s a photographer and he’s well good. None of that sepia, dreamy, vignette, colour pop nonsense (sorry if that’s your scene) – he’s all about real life, documentary style, stunning photographs.

I’m very passionate about what I do and I hope that comes across in the work you can see here. I’m even more passionate (and hilarious) in actual real life.

Feel free to message me anytime (sleep is overrated in our house anyway) with any questions or enquiries and I’ll reply as soon as I’ve finished feeding the baby.


Love and peace and hugs and kisses
