SHARING SUNSHINE

I’m not sure I’ve actually written a post dedicated to sharing Sunshine Portraits since moving the blog over here! Oops! But I’m going to change that (starting now!) and will aim to pop over here every few months to share some of my favourite work with you. Don’t tell the jewellery but portraits are always my favourite…

hello DECEMBER

The final instalment of the little monthly round ups here on the Sunshine Blog and I still can’t get my head around where 2018 went, let alone all the things that have happened. What a year it’s been! From mini adventures and exciting work developments to two of the BIGGEST, most exciting days in my life (getting married and buying our very own Sunshine Van), 2018 has certainly delivered some blinders.

PROJECT VAN

Back in August 2016, I officially introduced you all to a life long dream and plan to help make it reality. Project Van, as I affectionately called it, was my way of bringing the dream of owning my very own campervan to life. I thought it was about time to revisit that dream after something pretty epic happened this year…
