I met a girl called April when I was 14 and living in Canada. We have been friends 21 years. On the weekend I got to spend a far too quick twenty four hours with her and her beautiful boys. I have to tell you about April and her family in Canada. She has beautiful kind hearted parents. And her brother and sister will always be like family to me. She was brought up in a house full of love. You could feel it when you went there. You were always fed and always felt loved. And that is exactly what they have created with their boys. I was fed the most amazing food and there is an enormous amount of love in that household. It is very special. It’s exactly like our household, its a bit chaotic, its a bit wild. But there is so much love there, its not about things. It’s about them. Like her family in Canada. You want to be a part of it, because that kind of love isn’t every day love. It is touched by something special. Messy is so beautiful.
A few months back, not long after our little girl was born I felt I needed a new project. That I needed to shoot more personal work, work just for me. For the love of it. So I floated the idea to a few girls whom I love dearly and the shh nobody’s watching project was born. There are rules, one shot, no direction, no interaction, just as you see it, while nobody is watching. We submit weekly. You can catch the weekly updates on our Facebook page. This week some of my non shh personal work was featured. It is always scary for me sharing personal work. It feels very intimate, like I am letting someone look right into my soul. I suppose because each image means something to me, each image is a part of me. You can read my whole interview over on the shh blog, if you would like to get to know me a bit better. Here are a collection of my personal images xx
