2013 Review

December 27th, 2013

It’s that time of year again where I get to look back and reflect on what was good, what was bad and what was really, really ugly. Truth be told, 2013 has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs. The first part of the year was quite difficult as I’d been struggling with my health, and although it was something I didn’t broadcast I was conscious that my business wasn’t moving as fast I wanted. I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and unfortunately two doctors had missed it, so for three years my symptoms had been growing to the point where I just couldn’t function. I never realised that left untreated it could cause so many problems. I’d got to the point where I just thought I was suffering from stress and also generally being a bit mardy! When I was finally diagnosed it was like a huge weight had been lifted – mainly because I realised I wasn’t being mardy AND it was treatable. High fives all round! By the middle of the year when my medication had kicked in I was finally starting to feel like myself again. This was also the point where I started to push my business in a whole new direction.

Property Photography {Maltkiln Cottage}

December 2nd, 2013

Earlier in the year Ian and I had the pleasure of photographing Maltkiln Cottage. A lovely one bedroomed self-catering property at Crook Hall Farm in Ormskirk, the farm is owned by Cliff and Claire Martland. With a variety of animals on the farm including chickens that you can feed, you will fall in love with the place! You’ll be greeted by their three dogs (three different generations of the same family), who are as welcoming as Claire and Cliff. And if fishing is your thing, they also have fishing lakes available.
