I never thought I’d really have the chance to go to Thailand. It just seemed like one of those far-away, mystical places. Luckily, my best friend Emily travelled the world this year and I managed to join her for two weeks, travelling to Bangkok and the Gulf islands of Thailand! We started with 3 days in Bangkok, including a visit to the Grand Palace. I’d highly recommend a visit to the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand, a two hour drive from the city – we got to walk with, feed and shower the elephants, as well as learn about where they’d all come from. It wasn’t just a home for elephants, either – bears, gibbons, birds and dogs were all looked after. I wish I could’ve stayed with the elephants forever, especially baby Prin!
A long overnight bus and ferry took us to Koh Samui, our first island adventure. The Sirin Samui Hostel was the perfect stop, with clean, spacious rooms and a great pool to relax by. We spent most of our time on the beach! Our second island was Koh Phangan, for the infamous Half Moon Party. Once we’d recovered from our hangovers, we visited Paradise Waterfalls and even found the beautiful Milky Bay resort tucked away on the beach. The breakfast was delicious and they let us use their pool!
Our final stop was Koh Tao, which fast became my favourite island (perhaps purely because of the sunsets). Koh Tao is the smallest of the islands, and I found it the most beautiful! Our days were mostly spent relaxing on the beach and walking around the shops and restaurants. A snorkelling or scuba-diving trip is a must – we visited all of the bays of the island, as well as Koh Nang Yuan which is just breathtaking. I can’t wait to go back!
My two loves of vintage and photography came together a few Sundays ago when I was asked to photograph Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair in Cambridge. Look out for some of my snaps on their Facebook or Instagram pages!
It was over a year ago that I paid my first visit to the pretty coastal village of Coverack in Cornwall. We chose the perfect weekend to go in July – I couldn’t get enough of the deep blue sea and sky, and the little shops, cafés and pubs. Every corner of the village was picture-perfect; here are some of my favourites.
I finally got my negatives developed from September, most of which were from the Duxford Air Show. It was quite an emotional day for my family as we all were obviously thinking of my grandpa, who passed away a couple of years ago, all day. I’m lucky enough that I inherited his 35mm camera, so seeing the air show through his lens was a very lovely, moving experience. Enjoy the photographs, taken on Kodak Porta 400.
Back in September, I was lucky enough to work with these two lovely ladies to create a dream shoot. We had a seventies inspired wardrobe and golden hour, as well as the classic autumn backdrop of fields and forests. Styled by the fabulous Emily Gray, and modelled by Jasmine Clark, here are a few of my favourite shots; there will be more on my official website (coming soon)!
