”Newport City Ladies are back! This time with two teams, not one!” by Kamila Jarczak

with No Comments

 

Since July 2019 I have supported our local women’s football team Newport CIty Ladies FC and it was an amazing time to watch them grow, play, laugh and build up friendships. Some of the girls left, some are still there and some have just joined the team. I really enjoy being involved with them and I am happy to provide fresh photos for them and share their progress on our Women of Newport social media.

“Why is it all about women?” by Juls Benson

with No Comments

I was proud to be asked to feature as one of the ‘Women of Newport’ in the first exhibition. I remember one guy jokingly asking, “Why is it all about women? When is it our turn?” and I replied, “It has been your turn for centuries. It’s our time now”, which is something I stand by. I class myself as a feminist, but understand that many people, women included, fear the term and the ideology.

I was introduced to Kamila by a friend of mine Jo as a super busy woman ( Jo, you must know me very well! ).

It took us  awhile to arrange to meet but I have to say – it was the most exciting and best time I had during the lockdown. Kamila is a person you can talk to endlessly, about anything.

Chasing a dream

Kamila, the founder of Women of Newport, and I first connected because of a story I told about how I quit my job to follow my dreams. As a mother of four school-age children, I was terrified that I had done the wrong thing giving up a secure career to chase my dream of becoming an author, but I learned that it’s ok to be scared just as long as you don’t let it stop you.

Childbirth in Pictures – Jo Robertson of Lillian Craze Birth Photography

with No Comments

I’ve been a birth photographer for over four years and it’s fair to say I adore all things birth including documenting it. I’d love to share my images and thoughts around birth photography with you. It’s interesting to me, that over the years when people combine the words “birth” and “photography” a particular moment or image comes to mind. You know the one I mean, right? Often, the first thought is (shock, horror!) “Why would you want to photograph that?” Allow me to challenge that reaction by sharing a series of images that I hope showcases that birth photography is far more than just the crowning shot!  (more…)
