Who I will be thinking of this Mother’s Day


My Mum is no longer with us but I still think of her every Mother’s Day and remember what a brilliant mum she was.

My parents split up when I was 11 and Mum brought up four children on her own, which can’t have been easy. She had to get a job and learn to drive and keep everything going for us.

My Mum was so kind, always doing things for others, supportive, funny and clever. I was the odd one out in our house, not wanting to do A levels but go to art college instead and she supported me all the way.

When my Mum moved away from Lincoln to live nearer to me, we had to pop into Lincoln and we saw a woman selling The Big Issue. Mum went straight over to her and bought a copy and they had a chat and a big hug. It transpired that Mum had befriended this person and made a point of regularly chatting to her and checking she was ok. It was very touching to witness and the woman made a point of telling me that my Mum was a very special person.

This Mother’s Day I will also think about the other women in my life – my family and my friends, many of whom are also mums, grandmothers and step-mums. I am so lucky to be surrounded by these wonderful women who make my life so much fuller.

There is always a good reason to have portraits taken and capture moments with the special people in our lives. I’m glad that on a couple of rare occasions of our family getting together, we had portraits taken. If you would like to have portraits to celebrate your Mum or for any reason, please get in touch;

"Philippa is so much fun to work with during photo shoots. We have two uncontrollable children and she has been able to capture their energy with the camera for some fun photos. She certainly has met our desire to have some great family pictures to gift to other relatives. This was our third session within the last 10 years excluding numerous passport photos sessions. We appreciate Philippa's patience and enthusiasm for her work! She's a creative local entrepreneur that should certainly be supported"
