So, in case you didn’t know, or haven’t seen me sporting a growing bump at weddings as the summer and autumn progressed, there’s a baby due at Retrosight HQ very, very soon! Really I’m already on maternity leave and distracting myself with nesting, tidying, napping, and packing and re-packing my hospital bag, but I wanted to share some of what this year has looked like with you. It’s been a quieter year which has been perfect as I experienced the most ridiculous exhaustion in the early months of pregnancy, and it allowed me to have everything wrapped up before the due date, whereas December would normally be especially gruelling with getting editing done before Christmas.

Thank you to those couples who were so patient while it took me a little longer than I would have liked to get their photos to them, and to all those brides, grooms, and mums who kept on checking in with me on wedding days to make sure I was eating and drinking enough! It made me feel even more welcome and a part of the family than normal. But overall, and as ever, thank you to each couple and family who trusted me with this precious task of capturing such special moments; know that I do not take it lightly, and these moments stay with me too.

Of course, this year we also launched The Picture Bus which has joined a few of the weddings I photographed (so many props – pun maybe intended – to my husband David for partnering with me in creating the Picture Bus, promoting it, running it with me at events, and particularly when I didn’t fit behind the wheel any more!) and has been a standalone feature at plenty of other weddings, festivals, events, and once even in David’s grandparents’ driveway so we could get some family snaps! Look out for a special post on the Picture Bus Facebook page very soon…

For now, I leave you with a glimpse back on 2016, and I wish all those newlyweds and parents of newly-borns a wonderful first Christmas on this new part of your adventure together.
