Artifact Motherhood | March 24

My firstborn child is an adult. I mean I knew it would happen, obviously. But still I feel all at odds with formulating the words to describe how it feels. Of course I want to say how proud I am of her, but it’s more than that, there’s a deep intensity and admiration within our…

By your side | Artifact Motherhood, December 2023

I wanted to share something meaningful to wrap the year up. Maybe a post about our scary experiences being stuck in the Himalayas this summer. Or something about the joy of long train journeys. Possibly a reflection of how you’re growing up into remarkable young ladies – but I’m your Mama, of course I’d say…

Season of Motherhood | October 23

View of the Valley, before… I love you and all your brave determination, Mama, xx This is part of ARTIFACT MOTHERHOOD – a project shared with other female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words. Our seasons are short snippets in the midst of real…

The Jetsetting Life! | Artifact Motherhood September 2023

My gorgeous girls, This jetsetting life! People think it’s so glamorous right? All fun and five star! The reality is we haven’t got on a plane for leisure in a long, long time – even before the pandemic. We fly to see loved ones. Seeing those people we don’t get to spend enough time and…

Slow Winter Days | Artifact Motherhood, March 2023

Girlies, here’s the thing about me, which I know you already know. I hate being busy. Ugh, that feeling of having to tick things off a list, the running on a hamster wheel trying to keep up with ourselves, or others, and the idea that our productivity is somehow linked to our worth as humans….

Wish You Where Here 2022

When the project wrapped up at the end of 2021 I decided I couldn’t let go of this habit of savouring time, week by week, and I would continue by myself to pull together one photo roughly every 7 days that maybe summed up a moment I treasured, or where we were, or that I wanted to share.

Season of Motherhood | February 2023

With university visits making up part of our Christmas holidays, lessons in self sufficiency and development of life skills become part of your days. I’m glad we have time still, and it’s just part of the preparation process right now – we’ll get there, both of us, love you, Mama, xx This is part of ARTIFACT…

Season of Motherhood | October 2022

One hour, that was how long the vomiting lasted for you both. It just so happened that hour was as we were about to get on a sleeper train. We giggled through it about how it wasn’t the first time any of us had thrown up on a train platform (Kowloon and Ulan Battar were…

Doing your best | Artifact Motherhood September 2022

When you told us a few years you wanted to go to a school that would give you a good chance of going to university (after being adamant for a while that you wouldn’t want to go) we told you all we ever expected was for you to give your best to the opportunities life…

Creativity on the Fly, a Self Paced Course by Kirsty Larmour

It is always an honour when you’re asked to teach on a subject you’re passionate about. So when I was approached by Click Photo School to ask if I could work on something on creativity I took a deep breath and said YES! Why the deep breath? Because creativity is something so deeply ingrained in…

Season of Motherhood | April 2022

April is Autism Awareness Month. I’m aware that autism can make the outside seem muted, yet there is a luminous glow ignited from within. I’m aware that autism can be very strikingly black and white sometimes, yet other times all the colours shine. I’m aware that there are many layers to autism, but their depth…

Weathering Winter | Artifact Motherhood March 2022

We really aren’t used to winters, we tropical girls. We’re used to the sun on our faces, sprinkles of freckles on our shoulders and feeling the earth beneath our bare feet. And at most maybe adding a bobble hat if we go to the mountains, or a hoodie against the chill. On December trips for…

Both Sides of the Lens 2021

Yet again I’m grateful to the most wonderful set of ladies who’ve helped to keep me accountable and in the frame of my family memories over the last year, just as they did through 2020. It’s so difficult as “the photographer” of the family sometimes. Photographing actually forces me to slow down and savour moments….

Season of Motherhood | February 2022

A feeling of “Here we go again”… continued life in limbo… This is part of ARTIFACT MOTHERHOOD – a project shared with other female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words. Our seasons are short snippets in the midst of real life where we pause…

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,

Kirsty xx
