Hi there, I’m Leanne – Blogger, Photographer and Stylist. I am also a wife to my handsome hubby and a mum to four girls – three very cheeky monkeys here with me on earth and one precious angel who watches over us from above.
Welcome to my blog where I talk about my favourite things: Styling … Life … Photography …
I live my life eating clean, wholesome food free of preservatives and sugar
I have a love for all things pink (lucky I have girls!)
A need for things to be put away when they are not being used
My blog began in 2009 when we were building our house – and was named Mrs A In The Cove. After we finished our house things changed and in 2010 my passion for photography, styling and desserts saw the direction of my blog change. I launched a new business “Sweet Style” and set to work creating and photographing beautiful events for customers (and myself of course). After my styling business kicked off I also took the leap into the world of online selling and in June 2011 launched my little online store selling delightful pieces to help make your party pretty. At the end of 2014 I closed up the online store so I could focus on my love of photography.
Drop me an email if you would like to know more. I have worked with many well known brand names to bring their products to life via sponsored posts – they include Royal Albert, Harry’s Ice Cream, Milla Cordial to name a few. You can visit my main website here.
So my blog today is about many things – my life, my food, my styling, my photography, my family, with a little bit of inspiration thrown in for good measure.
I would love to hear from you so please say Hi or follow me in Instagram or Facebook.
Here are a few answers to those commonly asked questions:
What camera do you use?
I am a Canon girl. I currently use a Canon 5D Mark III and she is my constant companion.
Do you have a favourite lens?
I have a few lenses I use regularly.
My Canon 24-70mm f2.8 is one of my favourites as well as my 50mm f1.2. I also regularly use a 100mm f2.8 macro lens as well as the 35mm f1.4
What software programs do you use for your photo editing?
I currently use a combination Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. The time consuming part of photography is the editing – taking the photos is the easy part!
I also use Indesign occasionally for different layouts.
I want to open an online store - is it hard work?
In one word yes! There is so much to consider when you have an online store from setting up a website that needs constant and regular updating, to photographing the products, to keeping on top of stock, endless bookwork, not to mention the hours of work that goes into packing items so they arrive at the other end safely. All very rewarding when your customers love receiving their parcel but lots of hard work as well!
Will you feature me on Sweet Style?
While I try to keep a lot of content my own I do occasionally feature other things that within the style and topics of my blog – feel free to contact me if you feel you would have something that fits.
