Out for a stroll


I am always taking pictures of my family. No matter where we are or what we are doing, I have my Nikon at hand. So today, as usual I captured the events on camera. This time round I am going to share the images and tell you a little bit more about me.

I am married to Aaron Garcha and have been for 3 years. He is an Senior Aircraftsman in the Royal air Force, basically he is a geek and loves planes but don’t tell him I told you. I served 5 years in the RAF before leaving to have my beautiful little girl in the pictures below. I served in Afghanistan from 2009 until 2010, I am proud of myself but I couldn’t go back now I am a mother. I left the military and became a stay at home mum….which I found so very boring. Especially after being in the military for 5 years, doing nothing was just boring. I needed a hobby, so as my hubby prepared to set off on his detachment, he bought me my very first Nikon. It was a Nikon d3100 and I loved it. To me it was perfect. I fell in love with taking photographs of EVERYTHING. Anyway, after a year of using it and thousands of hours on-line learning all about ISO, Aperture and well everything else you need to know about your camera, I bought a new one. A D90 this time round, again I learnt all about it and by this time people had started asking me if I was a professional. I wasn’t but I suddenly thought, I could be. I saved up and started buying kit. I spent thousands on lights, backdrops an iMac…… Finally I had it all. My first customer was booked in and I was so exited. The shoot was amazing and well more and more people came to me, I was fully booked within a week and now I am here. Just little old me, on top on this amazing hill looking down at my past and wondering why I didn’t do this sooner. I love looking at my past because it’s what has brought me here, to this stage of my life. I now have 2 daughters (the baby isn’t pictured below as she was sleeping), yes it’s been hard going but I got here, and I will keep going, pushing harder and getting better.

Anyway as promised here are my favourite images from today. We walked around the ruins at minster lovell hall. here is the link to the website if you fancy a visit.  http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/minster-lovell-hall-and-dovecote/
