March

Another month gone... very, very scary! Here are a few highlights from March.

Food Photography

This month I had a bit of a focus on food photography. It's something I love to do but want to do better, so I'm trying to challenge myself to shoot more food more often. I started with sweets, which you can see over on my other site here: http://blog.jaynelloyd.co.uk/2014/03/sweets/

Recipe of the Month

This also links nicely into my recipe of the month, which I think has to go to the home made chocolate truffles I made for Mothering Sunday. My scales broke so I couldn't do anything too complicated, so these were perfect, and very tasty!

The Business Woman's Network's Fifth Birthday BAsh

This month was the Business Woman's Network's Fifth Birthday Bash. It was a really busy event with many businesses holding stands. I had a stand where people could view my new sample wedding albums (blog feature coming soon!) and have corporate headshots taken.

A Family Do

I haven't had chance to work through all my photographs yet, but I had a lovely weekend visiting family to celebrate my Grandad's birthday. It was lovely to see family I hadn't seen for a little while and it we were lucky to have lots of sunshine!

Spring is in Full Swing!

Here in the UK the parks and gardens are really coming back to life, and it's great to see all the colours coming through! I've been trying to get myself outside more, and taking my camera with me. It's amazing the difference the extra sunlight makes!

Resolution Update

The resolutions are still sort of doing alright. I'm managing to stick to a new recipe each week (although I haven't photographed most of them, so I'll have to get that going again).

Sadly I don't think I made it to any exhibitions, though. I'll try my best to make up for it this month!
