The Move & Nourish photoshoot was a beautiful experience with a beautiful lady. Aimie and I wanted to capture light, love and nourishment with a golden hour shoot. A stunning evening in Guivelivet park provided the natural setting.
I used the natural light to create the desired lens flare as a backdrop to Aimie showcasing her yoga moves.
The other shoot was a time to capture snippets of Aimie that she could use for social media and to add to her image collection for the website.
This lady is pure sunshine, which is what I hope the shoot captured both in her and the surroundings.

Hope you are all enjoying a well-deserved break for Bank Holiday. Sorry it’s not a very seasonal post, but I’m sure you’re sick of all that chocolate and sweet Easterness (yeah right). Well for those that are, here is something a bit different and interesting to keep in the fridge when you’re in a pickle!
Here are my Pickled Watermelon Rinds…
Watermelons are one of my favourite foods. They are soft, hydrating and packed full of goodness. We all know the flesh can be eaten, but what do you do with the rind? Throw it away right? Stop; do not throw that rind away!!
There are wealth of delicious dishes you can make with this often dis guarded part.
Firstly make sure you wash the watermelon thoroughly if you are going to use the rind. I am going to show you an easy way of using them, which is to pickle them. But you can also add them to stews, stir-fry’s and sauté them with spices such as paprika and chilli as a side dish which would be great with a fried chicken dish.
