I’ve experienced profound bouts of grief throughout our journey to parenthood but photography was always something that helped ease those times. Having post natal depression has been so very different.

I knew I was in a bad place when I had no interest in my photography. I didn’t look at something, anything, and think “that’s beautiful or interesting enough to capture”.

It’s been a scary time, wondering if and when the cloud will lift. But I’m really relieved and happy to share that it’s been a good few weeks and the extended flow of okay days gives me hope that the fog is disappearing and I’m slowly coming out of this mental health nightmare.

I did something I love, I saw the world in colour again and I used my camera. K x
