A natural light sunset 🌅 portrait shoot is up there with one of the nicest working environments IN THE WORLD 🌎
It’s a great opportunity to get outdoors into the heart of nature & capture a fresh editorial style of imagery.
This type of shoot is for you if you either have a business that you need to create some personal headshots/content for. You are a blogger who needs imagery content, or you fancy breaking out your shell and showcasing your best self?.. maybe you’re a model/aspiring model and so you want to freshen or add images to your current portfolio?

My life is pretty clearly defined by periods of taking photos.. and then editing photos at my home. So while I’m editing I’m thrown largely into my own world, I don’t make time to watch TV or even catch up on much news other than what’s currently trending online or on radio. I rely on environmental pages that I follow to keep up to date on other major issues impacting our world, like climate change, endangered species such as the Vaquita or Borneo Orangutan, oceanic pollution, ice cap melting, raging wild fires 🔥 (with this years global record breaking heat waves...)
Where do you catch up with the world friend? & are there any good shows that I’m currently missing out on?? and so need to make time for? Please tell me.. I’m in my own lil work zone bubble here. ;) once you start.. you just can’t stop! (I didn’t say workaholic..) 😇📈📤📌📚💻📸🔪🌲
I’ve just moved from the “cool neighbor” category.. (neighbor who doesn’t do weird stuff) to the “weird neighbor” category... All in the space of like 5mins, right now! Lemmy explain..
It all happened so quick.. like many stupid things we do, I bet you’re on the edge of your seat right now yeah?? Look.. I can’t help but have weird moments, it’s just.. it just happens k.
So I’m minding my own biz.. and I hear a cat lit screaming and a group of people laughing next door to me. So I drop everything check where my cats are.. I can only see one! I Go outside & in a real LOUD voice calling the missing cat! You may remember her as “Dream cat” from a previous blog, but if you’re new, heyyy! Welcome! FYI her name is Silver aka Silvi and she’s a little dream ;) (see previous blog) anyway I get all protective thinking the absolute worst! See.. the cat sounded like it was crying and people laughing which = equates to me IMAGINING THE WORSE.
So here I am (real LOUD voice) Silvi.. silv.. come on. Then I decide to “go around” to that side of the house and because I’m all fired up on.. adrenaline.. god knows what.. (lord pray for me) I decide to “peek” over the fence. (Little peek) But the fence is pretty high, so I stand on a food bin, (this happened in seconds) thought was; “ah I’m peeking quickly.. nobody will see me anyway! Like ya know “peek.. and then down real quick kinda biz”
So as I stand on not so trusty food bin I hold onto the rickity fence.. (did I tell you the fence was a bit rickety?) peek over, but as I do I see a real cute couple with a baby giving it kisses literally right WHERE I am!!!! (New couple.. moving in.. I’m gonna have to explain that) I then promptly fall off the food bin... onto the rickety old.. high fence and “pretend” like that’s a totally NORMAL THING TO DO... the other side of the fence is deathly quiet with a faint aroma to it of (WTF.. who is this strange.. weird neighbor!!!)
OMG.. yes that was the transition. (Did I ask you to please pray for me?) oh how one min you’re riding high.. and the next.. you’re, well.. you decide! Weird? Strange? Or.. do you think they won’t notice??
You know.. turned out Silvi was hiding on the windowsill! Bless her little fluffy heart... But I guess.. weird or not! I’d fight tigers if needed for that little (dream) cat. ;)
Suki feels like...
can I share a secret with you? Can
I explain why I spend endless hours working on my craft? Because I LOVE it. I love the feeling I get when I have my camera 📷 in my hands, that freedom to express myself through the visual medium of photography, but more so that feeling I get when you say how much you love your images, you actually make me feel SO overwhelmed by how much joy my work can bring to my special ppl.
Seeing how you genuinely love your images, means absolutely everything to me, and that in and of itself makes everything worthwhile.
I spend hours pouring into my craft because I love it... and also because I want to provide the best work I possibly can for you.. I love making you happy! 📸🤟😘
So from Suki (sidekick) and I.. Thank you! 😘🐾📸
So today I thought I’d post a “behind the scenes” photo.. “so why have you just posted a random photo of a walkway and a lighthouse Yvette??” (I hear you say) well.. the thing is, this IS behind the scenes! Honest boo.. see, I’m a natural light photographer and so with this work comes working., yeah! You guessed it! Outdoors in the heart of nature., our beautiful natural environment!
This was taken after an evening shoot with a young boy & his mum. It was a perfectly BEAUTIFUL evening, so instead of driving straight home, I took a solo walk back into the dunes and got some more photos of insects and the sunset. So my job literally has good health benefits yo.. like, just drinking in a sunset 🌅 YES please!!
See I’m a girl who mixes business WITH pleasure and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
Carpe Diem baby🤟

As a photographer I help different people.. like aspiring models & creative entrepreneurs create fresh & natural imagery they can use to build their portfolios/create website content.
✨ My work can be viewed across Instagram, my website, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, 500px, Flicker & LinkedIn.
✨ Natural light portraiture is something that I genuinely love doing as I feel that while combining the two elements of working with different people & having the freedom to grow & develop as a photographer/artist through the process, is mutually beneficial to both of us.
✨ The main point is being able to work organically while creating a series of work which not only aims to empower but to create confidence & evoke a real connection with the subject & viewer. I like to think of my style as a fresh, relaxed feel with also an editorial & ethereal undertone. Love ❤️ Yvette x 🙂

In recent years, Iceland has become a prime global tourism destination, praised for excellence in social, economic and environmental sustainability.
The current hunt to kill 238 endangered fin whales puts that reputation at risk, as it is in defiance of the 1986 International Whaling Commission’s moratorium on whaling. It is also economically unsound; Iceland’s whale watching industry generates $20M USD annually, which is far more than the whale hunt. One in five tourists to Iceland go whale watching, making it Europe’s premier destination.
Whales are highly intelligent, sentient beings critical to the health of our oceans. They prevent species over-population, regulate food systems and combat climate change.
As a global citizen, I call on the Icelandic government to ban whale hunting permanently. Until this happens, I will spend my tourism dollars in countries that protect wildlife, not those that slaughter it.
BE THE CHANGE.
