I have always been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. At school I was always the one with a camera in hand, capturing those carefree and innocent childhood years. When I went to university I always had a disposable camera with me on our nights out and as such I have so many wonderful snapshots of my child free, no responsibility days. Remember when you had to go into Boots to get your photos developed? Ah those were the days.
I got my first DSLR, a Nikon, in my final year of university when I had this crazy idea that I wanted to go back to university and do a photography degree. That didn’t end up happening as I really needed to go out into the world and earn money, but I did develop a passion that has never really gone away. However I didn’t have a particular niche that I liked to photograph.
When Maddie was born, I certainly found that niche, and even more of a passion than I ever thought I would have. I upgraded my DSLR, and have since been bitten by the photography bug. Now it is by far my favourite hobby (well that and making videos).
Obviously my favourite thing to photograph is my children, but I also love travel and lifestyle photography too.
Taking photos takes me to a happy place, I can’t really explain it, but having my camera in my hand, clicking away, gives me a feeling that I don’t think I will ever tire off.
I want to freeze time and capture those little details forever.
My blog is full of the day to day images of our lives together and I love to experiment with the kind of photos I take. Most of my posts are full of photos. I also love instagram. You can find me on there as @katie_ellison.
