Bamburgh Beach (Short family film) | Personal project: Artefact Motherhood | Family Documentary Photographer Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk

Your father and I visited Northumberland on our first holiday together. We stayed on Lindisfarne (Holy Island) and we had wonderful memories of spending time exploring the Northumberland coast. It was a place that we said we would love to go back to. Little did we know that we would be coming back, thirteen years later, with two little humans and our family dog as well.

I made a short film of our time spent on Bamburgh beach. Both of you said it was your favourite beach of all the ones we went to because it had rock pools for hunting out crabs, sand dunes to roll down and large jellyfishes to find on the beach. You even saw some puffins while out on a boat trip around the Farne Islands and conquered the long walk to Dunstanburgh castle. An old ruin that was once the focus of the long battle in the War of the Roses. 

As we packed our bags to go home, I made a vow with your father that we would come back here. Hopefully this time it won't take too long before we visit again.

This post is my contribution to a beautiful project I am a part of with other female photographers that document our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words. It's called ARTEFACT MOTHERHOOD.
