So.. Hi I'm Yvette! :) and I'm a portrait, lifestyle & wedding photographer an I reside in beautiful North Wales, UK where my passion is predominantly photography. I also have an adorable little dog called Suki and two equally adorable cats. I draw much of my energy an inspiration from my surroundings and I feel most a home by the beach. In fact.. a nice Seychelles beach with my camera in one hand and a snorkel and mask in the other. (On the side will be a refreshing low alcoholic beverage) maybe my iPhone to listen to music and podcasts In-between posting to Instgram a cute pic of a palm tree while I'm swinging in a hammock.. Sorry.. Where were we? Ahh yes! #beachlife
I want nothing more than to make a difference and to touch people through my photography and or by expressing my support, opinion/viewpoint online. I guarantee.. I won't be for everyone. But the people I do touch and who touch me,. That's why I do it.
I've made mistakes.
I've had ignorant & stupid moments. I've let myself be mislead as I had lost my way.
I've been scared and I've been lost.
In fact most of my 20's especially the early years were the most painful. But that said.. I'm so thankful to those years as I did SO much growing in & around that period of my life.. I feel like this is where I drew most of my strength.
The strength to know what I want. In fact around my late teens early 20's I remember actually praying to God for spiritual growth. To basically "throw it all at me" which.. It allll very much WAS! So the moral of that is, don't ask for what you don't want! It was only after a painful few years that I'd reached a point in my life where I'd had enough. I sat my room which was at the time somewhere I hated. There were floor boards strewn.. mostly half laid. I was lonely, drained.. emotionally and spiritually. My soul was literally crying out. I knew right there, it was a pivotal moment for me. I remember sitting crossed legged on the bed and I just cried. I prayed.. I Spoke to God and begged him, the universe the higher spirit to put an end to it. I knew in my heart that I had SO much love to give, and I needed to move in that direction. A direction of love. But saying that really wasn't until the last few years 2013-2016 that I've found my meaning. "That thing" that I can not only turn my hand to, but also my mind & I think it's also part of my soul.
I draw strength and energy from our natural surroundings and vibe with the people that "love to share love, happiness & that really care"
I am am passionate about the environment.. And I dream of one day, making a difference in some way. That's also in my heart. I show my support to endangered species and support conservation groups. I think it's sooo important to work to protect and safeguard this beautiful planet of ours for future generations.
I'm just a girl who wants to change the world.. Through love and photography. ;)
