Hello! I'm meant to write this blogpost before I left but I never got round to it, so here it is! You may or may not already know that I'm currently travelling Italy with my boyfriend, Mike. The plan was to not have a plan and just take our time to explore and do a few 'workaways' on organic farms etc. We started a travel blog: www.biglittleadventures.com where you can read some useful stuff (and some rambles!) about our journey.
This is definitely one of the crazier travels that I've done. Firstly because I've moved out of my flat so I'm technically homeless; and secondly we're not taking any flights so the journey is done entirely overland. We started off with a bus ride to Paris and now we've somehow made it to Tuscany. I had never thought of travelling overland until I met Mike in Cambodia- he'd travelled to SE Asia overland! I'm totally sold by this idea; I love train rides and we got to see so much more than just Italy (again, more on our travel blog).
And thirdly- travelling for three months means that I won't be able to take on any shoots. This is not the first time that I'd done that. I think it's quite easy to fall into a habit of saying yes to every job, because why not?! Money is money. But for me personally to keep doing what I love means having a balance. I find so much joy in shooting weddings and engagements; but I also find it essential to have a balance in my work. That is why along with weddings I also shoot food, lifestyle & travel photos, it keeps me constantly inspired and excited. Variety is the spice of life!
Having said that I'm not taking on any jobs, I'm still in business. I'm still working on some weddings left over from summer, updating my website and doing some admin work. Wedding bookings are being taken for 2016 & 2017. I'm available through emails, Facebook & whatsapp so don't hesitate to get in touch!
Here are a selection of photos from our travel so far.
