So lately, things have been a little like this…

The boys have been off camping, and whilst it’s lovely and quiet – I kinda miss the chatter. I know they’ll be having the best time – come rain or shine…  can’t wait to hear all about their adventures in the woods.

So it’s been just us two…  which has been magic… enjoying a little sunshine and some delicious treats…

I had a wonderful portrait session with a family visiting here from Singapore…… they were totally delightful! They wanted some memories of their little boys first time in London… this is such a fabulous idea and I’m going to start offering this “tourist” photo session to other families visiting here… Please get in touch if you’re visiting London in future.

We hung out by the London eye and Big Ben – it was a little too blustery considering it’s actually nearly June!!

Hey, I’m thinking of organising an instagram meet up in London…after I was inspired by this film.  I’m thinking the Shoreditch area as there is SO much goodness to capture – Would you come & play? I’ll announce details next week… stay tuned.

Fancy a walk through the rice paddies in Ubud Bali? – this is our One Minute Memory… Everyone else rushed ahead of us, so it was Cosmo and I taking our time, capturing along the way. It was hot and sweaty, but so amazing, with green as far as the eye could see… locals working and gathering their produce and just as we thought we couldn’t walk anymore in the heat… there was a beautiful restaurant with the most delicious drinks waiting for us… bliss!


My course COLLABORATE starts next week, I’m excited to see the films that can be created with you and your family capturing together… You could even make a One Minute Memory

I’d love to offer TWO places on my course…just leave a comment on this post, and I’ll choose the random winners on Tues 4th June at 6pm GMT… I’d love to have you join us…

Have a great weekend…

I’m off to Paris tomorrow to spend time with Irene as she hosts her first Tedx event…  Andrea will be speaking at the event, so I get to see her too! and I’ll be able to cross some items off my list too – this trip is kinda #25 & I’ll be doing #8 & Andrea is going to help me with #9… Which is all pretty cool!

See you on the other side… wishes can come true…

    Eep. Hope I’m not too late to enter the competition. I’ve been so busy shooting footage to join Collaborate that I nearly missed out. Got my fingers and toes crossed 🙂

    Hi Xanthe- this course sounds wonderful! My children are adults now but I’m hoping that I can learn how to put something like this together, by combining the pieces of past memories with the now. They do not live close by so I miss them very much, and I think that this would be great.

    I would LOVE to win this! All three of my kids have iPhones/iPod touches so they are already video equipped. I am trying hard to get them all to develop a passion for photography. If nothing else, I would love for them to film just so that I can see the world the way they do! I hope I get a spot!! 🙂

    I’ve been enjoying your videos and sending links to friends who I think should take the class. I would love to take your class, but have been hesitant because I don’t have children of my own, just a nephew and niece. If I win then I know it was meant to be.

    I took your course ‘Creating Time Capsules’ earlier this year and loved loved loved it. And it’s an interest I have in common with my 12 year old son – though his film making differs somewhat in style (R.E. homework – a Bible story told Gangnam style – I’ll leave that one to your imagination…) But I love seeing how his photos and films capture something totally different to mine, even if we are doing the same thing, we are clearly seeing it differently. Be great to win a slot, fingers crossed!
