We’ve been here just over 2 weeks and despite my huge excitement at having a place to work, shoot and spread out my props, with everything else going on with moving in, I’ve yet to shoot here. So today I spent a few hours ‘faffing’. Goodness, it has been a long time since I had a frivolous faff. And my fears that the light and space wouldn’t feel right were proved to be completely wrong. It was a dark day here, after all the sunshine and hanging loads and loads of washing outside today has been filled with light drizzle but I loved the light on my huge new wooden table and the few things I finally had a chance to photograph.

These books Living with Plants and Destination Barcelona are beautiful, small guides with really inspiring imagery. I bought both from The Future Kept there are so many gorgeous pieces, books and home ware that I’d love to own from this carefully curated online store. Do have a look if you haven’t already!

Now I’ve broken in the space, I can’t wait to get on with the list of shoots and ideas I have coming up. I’ll be sharing little snippets of behind the scenes on Instagram Stories if you want to see the other side. How is everyone finding Stories? I have to say for me, I’m far more comfortable with this than Snapchat, which I tried a few times but it made me feel old! Plus logging in and out of yet another app just didn’t fit into my schedule. I’m liking Stories so far, not loving, but liking a little bit of everyone’s unedited lives however not too much I feel there could be a little too much oversharing, I promise not to be that person!

Anyway a mornings faff, happy Friday.

We moved. It’s big news for us, it’s something we’ve been planning and thinking about for over 2 years. It was never supposed to take this long, I packed up summer clothes thinking I’d see them in a few months little did I know I’d ship them off to a family garage for 2 seasons! We started the unpacking process last Monday, bringing together all our belongings that have been waiting in four different(!) locations for all this time, plus all our current things from our flat. We have 6 salt and pepper pots! 4 graters and far too many food props but it’s lovely to have us and everything we own all together. We had 5 days together, unpacking, exploring, working out how to put the hot water on and getting to know our new home. Eden & Haven have loved all this new found space, the novelty of going up and down the stairs and having a garden.

We have a studio space, which when it’s not so full of boxes I’ll share images very soon.

Regardless of all the moving and unpacking this time of year the lavender is in bloom at the Mayfield Lavender fields and we made our yearly visit for portraits, this year we find they’ve added a telephone box and a little silver airstream cafe (by the picnic tree) which has made this beautiful place even more popular. I thought I’d share a few images with you here.

One of the loveliest companies I’ve worked with and a brand I have really fallen for, if you drink any kind of coffee then you really should try Cupsmith, roasted at home in their beautiful on site Roastery their carefully crafted and delicious blends are then packaged up and delivered to your door. I spent the day there a few weeks ago to create images for their website. If you try their coffee, follow along on their instagram feed and join in with the Cupsmith Hashtags, #cupsmithtravels #cupsmithdays #cupsmithwalks if you need coffee to get through the day (like me!) then this is a perfect cup every single time.

We managed to squeeze in a last breakfast at House of Small Wonder just before our flight home. A cash only breakfast / brunch spot at the top of the prettiest staircase I have seen.house of small wonder photography Catherine Frawley 05

Upstairs is lovely too, light filled with plants and flowers filling the room. The breakfast choices were simple, but fresh and generous and the coffee was good. It’s definitely worth the visithouse of small wonder photography Catherine Frawley 10house of small wonder photography Catherine Frawley 13house of small wonder photography Catherine Frawley 20house of small wonder photography Catherine Frawley 33house of small wonder photography Catherine Frawley 36
