Makelight Magic

Hi everyone. You may remember back in November as usual I entered the #stylingtheseasons hashtag on Instagram with my flatlay of blues and wintery objects. I don't know if I told you this but I WON that monthly competition and to my delight I was able to pick a photography workshop to attend run by the lovely Emily Quinton. Well last weekend I went on said workshop down in my favourite London town and I had the most marvelous time!!!

The moment I walked into Emily's studio in West Dulwich I knew I had to have one! 

The space is filled with amazing props, pretty things and wonderful light. What more could a photographer and blogger want? We spent a while chatting and picking Emily's brains and I was surrounded by likeminded ladies who were a source of great inspiration too. If you don't know Emily Quinton then you really should take a peek at her lovely website and find her on Instagram. She is a very successful lady and this is clearly down to her hard work and amazing eye for composition and beauty. We were then let loose to photograph our hearts out using all of the things around us. I loved the experience and Emily also kindly helped us all out with using camera's and Instagram advice. I took some lovely photos of gorgeous flowers and practiced my flatlay skills and I also used the studio to capture my vintage styling kit. More about that in my next post. Anyway a week on and I am still buzzing from the experience!! It has given me another little push in my quest to break into this industry and it also made me rearrange the dining room into a more studio based workspace. (any excuse!)

So thank you to @aptapothecary @lottsandlots @emilyquinton and @ruthlgarner for picking me I really can't thank you enough xxx

And here are some of the photographs I have been taking at home after my head was filled with lovely stuff! 


  1. Didn't we have a lovely time!! Thank you for this great reminder of our day - I love that pink pussywillow.

  2. You've taken some beautiful photographs and I always enjoy seeing yours on Instagram too. I need to improve my own photography, so it great to see yours, and others that help me get betterđź’ś
