Sorry that you’ve not heard from me for a few weeks….I’ve been busy photographing and laying out my third book…I’ll give you a sneaky preview shortly! I’m so excited about my new collection, it’s all crochet (with a bit of knit!), very feminine, beautiful and summery!
I’ve also been busy art directing a couple of photography shoots for Rowan, so I thought I would give you a taster of the shoot…
I decided to shoot one of the collections for Rowan Mag 58 at the stunning Beacon Hill Country Park in Leicestershire. Some of you may know that I’m lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country, in rural Leicestershire. This county is a fabulous secret, not many people know about the wonderful rolling farmland and pretty villages, typical of the English countryside. We also have the most spectacular woodland and Beacon Hill Country Park is a fine example.
Beacon Hill Country Park is a part of the Charnwood Forest in the North West of Leicestershire. The park has over 335 acres of mixed woodland, grassland, wild flower meadows as well as adjoining farmland. Beacon Hill is the second highest point in the county, once the site of a Bronze Age fort and affords great views of the surrounding countryside. It is also the site of one of the many beacons across the country that are lit at special occasions such as the Queen’s jubilee.
Here are a few photographs I took on the shoot…I just love the fairytale fungi that was prevalent everywhere!
On the second day of the shoot, Mark (my husband) brought our dogs, Norah and Nelly, to the woods. They were models for the day and you’ll be able to see them in the magazine when it’s published! Here’s a photo of them that Liam took…looking very proud with their day’s work!
