In May I was lucky enough to get over to The Netherlands to shoot Grahame and Yulia’s wedding, and I jumped at the chance to stay an extra day and a half and go exploring a bit. With a busy family life it’s rare that I get a few full days to myself and I even worried that I would’t know what to do in just my own company, but it was wonderful to go wandering with my camera and explore. Here are some personal pics I took on both film and digital. The wedding was in Brielle, and I also pottered around Rotterdam before spending a night and the next morning in Amsterdam. Here are a few favourites..

So.. it’s March already. This year has had a much welcomed quieter start for me and my little family. There’s been catching up with friends, catching up with each other, hibernating under blankets on the couch, lots of cooking, and generally relishing the simpler things. It’s going to be another chaotic year (for reasons which you’ll read about below!) and I’ve been consciously trying not to overdo everything so far this year, and have loved having a few days doing absolutely nothing at all.I’m going to try and put this without sounding like one of ‘those’ people.. but on top of enjoying a few simpler pleasures, my husband and I decided to try and actually look after ourselves a bit more this year and set a better example for our girl. Health kicks in the past for us have often been short-lived.. we are probably the worst people I know for snacking on the couch with beers and wine.. but we are hoping to make some decent long-term changes and feel the benefits this year. I’ve a long way to go but I’m hoping to be nice and strong by the time wedding season kicks in!
Right.. the big thing this year is moving house. Anyone who knows me will be thinking “Again?!” as we’ve been house-hopping for quite a while now.. But this time we’re hoping it’s for good as we’re buying for the first time. We are leaving much-loved Leeds back to North Yorkshire at the beginning of next month, and will be moving in with my (very kind and very patient!) in-laws for a few months in between. In a sort of sad farewell we’ve been trying to make the most of what this wonderful city has to offer while we’re still here in between packing everything up for storage.
AND.. in other news.. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few exciting photography commissions this year.. pushing me out of my comfort zone. I’ve really, really loved it. Here are little previews from the Chilli Cake Deli..
North East band Cattle and Cane..And shooting for the Greco Brothers..And I have something else to announce very soon.. WATCH THIS SPACE. I hope you’ve all had a lovely and slow start to the year, bring on Springtime!All rights reserved. Copyright Sally T Photography.
In October this year my husband and I decided to take a little break and nip off to gorgeous Paris for a few days. We stayed in Monmarte and loved the brasseries, bars and gorgeous scenes across the city.To make it a real break I didn’t take my ‘big’ camera, and just used a little film point-and-shoot all weekend.. here are my favourites from a long lazy weekend..
