Filters are my best friend!! my skin broke out with acne and a sore eye! Plus right... I have a new phone and this camera shows up absolutely everything. 🌟
So my cracked iphone screen was lit a God send because it created a natural hazy filter. Yes... I love filters! I'm a filter QUEEN. It's like treating yourself to a £50 facial.. and that's something I plan on doing! but for now.. this is how I roll 😎
I've been using rosehip oil for the last few days and my skin is clearing up okay now. Also I've binned my "Fit me" maybelline foundation (it was bought as a last min touch up for a wedding) but it contains things that agrivate skin. I've since learnt that any ingredient ending in (cane) is bad apparently. Hey, if you have any suggestions for good natural products/things you swear by! please, please share! 🌙
My skin is so temperamental atm and prone to sensitivity and breakouts if I use the wrong type of products. Also.. side note; Never! do NOT put coconut oil on your face!!! It's great everywhere else, but on your face is no good. I learnt the hard way! Rosehip oil or Olive Squalane all-the-way.
The END of BLUE SKIES 🌌 “Solar Geoengineering”
“”We could shoot sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere, where it would turn into droplets of sulfuric acid capable of reflecting at least some of the sunlight coming toward Earth — which could counterbalance the planet-warming effects of more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It would also be much cheaper than”” (devices, capable of extracting carbon out of the atmosphere)
“Broecker said, but of course it would mean the END OF BLUE SKIES too.”

Sky inspiration 🌌
Finding new ways to to become inspired can sometimes seem a little tad.. daunting..
I sometimes think to myself, is this it? Have I now maybe reached my creative limits and so need to work about 200x harder to get inspired??✨
Then one night you just go outside and see a prettttty sky 😍
I shot this with 3x stacked neutral density filters. And got a cool set of different shots. So.. what I learnt? That half the battle is just showing up. When you find your zone.. it just flows.
That reignited feeling of creativity! She wasn’t dead! She was waiting for the optimal time to resurface and say.. hollla, I’m here! #boom 😉
Is not the movement of a clock that produces the newness of life, it is the movement in your mind. You’re gonna hear all things said about you.. throw it behind you.
The enemies that you see today you will see them no more. Any weapon formed against you will not prosper. Every tongue that rises against you, God will condemn.
Truth of the matter is, everybody is going through a change. You don’t have to be ashamed of yours... we are all in the process of transforming to a higher better expression of ourselves.
What separates us.. is transformation, the possibility of change.. the desire to evolve.. the passion to get up off the ground and stop eating dirt.
I’m tired of doing what I always do.. if I always do what I’ve always done.. then I’ll always be where I’ve always bin. I’m gonna throw it behind me.
Because the real battleground is in your mind... That’s where the FIGHT is. You lay down with it.. you get up with it.. you go to work with it.. you can’t digest your food because of it.. smiling at people and nobody knows that there’s gunfire going off in your head...
It’s not a geographical location
It’s not debt
It’s not money
It’s not haters
It’s not enemies
It’s not liars
It’s not backbiters
That’s not the battleground.. stop wasting your weapons on what people say.. because it is not what people say about you that matters. It’s what you say about YOU that controls your destiny.
I dedicate this to you.. to the greatness in you, and to the dream that you showed up on the planet produce. 🌎

I do this every now and again, and it’s always a challenge to introduce myself for the first time to those of you who are new around here, while still sharing something unfamiliar with those who’ve known me a while.
Funny thing about me, though, I’m always up for a challenge! So hi! I’m Yvette but my Grandad called me Tufty.
It’s a long story... I’m a photographer but as a kid I always thought I’d grow up to be a marine biologist, I’m passionate about what I do because I get to document inner confidence and create portrait art! but I never take for granted that the models/people trust me enough to capture them.
🍫 A perfect day for me always includes chocolate out the fridge.
📲 I can’t go more than a few hours without checking my phone!
🍇 If I were confined to eating a single item of food for the rest of my life it would be Raspberries.
🎶 My jam right now is CardiB I like it like... and
🎭 the last theatre show I saw Brighton Rock. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
It was Nice to meet ya! Now.. who are YOU? :)
Thriving business created from apple 🍏 donations!!! (That would be otherwise wasted) How amazing is that?! They’re set to employ people in the near future, so from the surrounding area of locals who made this new cider company possible.. it’s now having a knock on effect by creating jobs. It’s a good message for the world I think. How about you??
Community and giving is powerful. From an “idea” to a “tangible business” from “no jobs” to creating “jobs” ALL from “community kindness & generosity”
Philanthropic giving is the way forward to creating a sustainable future, environment and lifestyle.

My protection is gone.. but I’m gonna be ok! Speak life and positive vibes into your life. Blessings into your heart (and hearts of others)
I just love sharing positivity through my posts, you know.. I feel like that’s something we all need! It’s not airy fairy.. it’s science. You know?
Did you ever see that campaign that Ikea did with two identical house plants?? They were given the same, identical sunlight access and water. But one plant people were asked to say hurtful things to, the other one to speak love and kindness. Man.. oh my gawd.. you have to see the results!! I nearly cried. Legitimately. I nearly did.
I thought., that if this is what happens to plants. I think we can safely say then it’s going to be the same with people. “”Positive and negative vibrations””
Let’s spread some love and growth over here guys. ✌️🤟 Peace, love and Harmony too ❤️
I dedicate this post to a special friend. I want to say, you are amazing! Thank you so much for being in my life these past 8x months. I love you! I love your kindness. Blessings to you! You’ll always be my special star!!! ✨ (thanks for the exercise tips, cream, combs, protective jacket) Love 💕

Photography for me is about developing and growing as an artist, it’s something which happens organically and you really can’t rush the process!
I suppose it’s like birthing a child, I heard this somewhere else before! It takes “time to grow” and then all of a sudden when nature says it’s time! Your baby (or your “new” creative self) comes forth. But that’s only just the beginning, because just like a baby you need to nurture yourself (that dream you have) and help yourself to grow, evolve and develop.
But one things is for sure! You literally have the world at your feet. Hey It’s a big world out there too 🌎 #Dream
Do you think the butterfly 🦋 held it in its heart that it was possible to fly.. when it was only just a caterpillar 🐛???
I mean., if we didn’t know any better.. wouldn’t we even say that it’s “impossible”???? How can You suddenly “transform” and sprout wings? It’s literally a living miracle. And like many small miracles, they can can be seen as “the norm” because we just take it for granted.
If you stop and really think about it though.. it’s straight up amazing. 🦋
What are you holding deep within your heart my friend? Because maybe it’s natures way of telling you, this is what you’re here for. This is what you’re capable of. If we knew we could fly.. 🕊
6 years ago my eyes were opened up to the magnificent world of photography.. 5 years ago I scraped enough money together to put myself through a part time photography night course so I could learn about photography and how to use a camera..
I was the ONLY student without a camera 📷 because I literally spent all the money I had on the education!! So my thoughts were.. that the “education” would be a good investment because it was over a year! So a years worth of learning about a subject I loved. (It was a great investment) and I thought that after a few months into the course.. then I should maybe have enough money to buy a camera!..
It got to the October time and the tutor took me to one side & said that it was essential that I now have a camera because otherwise I really couldn’t complete the course!. So with half the money saved up, my dad 🙏🙏 actually helped me with the remaining so I could purchase my first ever beginners DSLR!
FAST FORWARD & I now photograph a range of different models and have started a “woman at sunset” project 🌅 I also document nature and environmentally themed topics that I’m interested in, and I have been lucky enough to have my clean energy work of “innogy WindFarm” published in their recent annual report. I also love photographing couples & provide wedding photography bespoke services.
Never let your circumstances define you. If you have a dream of doing something.. only YOU have that ability to go out there and grasp It with both hands.. make it happen and don’t give up. Don’t let anything stop you!
Don’t be afraid to look like a fool and sign up on a photography course with not actually owning A CAMERA!!!! Don’t let ANYTHING stand in the way of your dream. And keep in mind this quote below ⬇️
lastly.. (Remember to Go hard after your dreams..) Yx
“”If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”” Martin Luther King Jr.

How to start a work day.. Gratitude 🙏 for doing what you love (right?)
It’s time for a progress report on all those lofty promises we made to ourselves this January! I’ll say I’ve been flailing pretty hard-core... I don’t even remember what those promises might have been to begin with!!! but it’s never a bad plan to challenge yourself yet again. 😇
I’m here confessing, I want to eliminate any negative self-talk & not work past 9pm.. (I don’t think any of this will be easy) see, old habits can be hard to break, but if you pick one, maybe we can hold each other accountable! What do you want to do less often? Btw, you’re looking beautiful today boo! ;) 🙌😘
Livvy started her modeling journey exactly one year ago.. I had the pleasure of meeting Livvy & her mum Carrie and we’ve stayed in touch ever since.
It’s been absolutely AMAZING to see Livvy grow over the past 12 months, in that time she has worked and collaborated with many creative professionals within the industry, she’s been part of TV & advertising & most recently worked in Paris to film a crime drama series for bbc AMERICA!!!
I’m incredibly privileged that Carrie loved Livvy’s photos so much (as much as I loved meeting and working with them both!!) Carrie has continued to support my work and is quite possibly the warmest person with the biggest heart I’ve ever met! ❤️
I can’t wait to see what the next 12 months has in store for this beautiful girl and her mum. I feel privileged to have documented the very beginnings of her blossoming career. 🌸 With the world literally at her young feet! 🌎
