Making crumble

I recently took a class on making films with the wonderful Sarah Mason. Sarah creates moments that combine both whimsy and truth in her film making and has inspired me for years. In all honesty, while I use photography for many reasons during different seasons of life, the overriding purpose of it isn’t about a message to the world or anything massively deep, it’s about preserving my own memories, about cherishing small moments of beauty, it’s about us as a family and our every day.

And so, as my first assignment I captured something we do every week – I say we, but really it’s the kids… they make crumble – lovingly taught by my Mum, they rub and chop and mix and sprinkle and bake and it’s a lovely little ritual in our sometimes busy weeks.

To add to the lovely connections that I treasure the apples were from my sister in laws garden and the blackberries from my parents…

Sadly I didn’t get to capture us eating it – 1 because it was dark by then, but 2 because it went too fast… which is surely a good sign.

I can’t wait to start making some more little films of life – until them you can see more over at my instagram,

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,
