LIFE IS IBIZA People House Life

Ibiza Island. 2018

At the end of 2017 I began to day dream about getting some more portrait and lifestyle photography and maybe not just in Ibiza.  I have of course photographed many people and places, having always been involved with sites like White Ibiza and many island houses, restaurants, food and events, but I have concentrated mainly on weddings. That’s 15 years of amazing brides and grooms and Ibiza weddings. If I was not photographing weddings I have been happily Mum to Lucas but he is now 11 and growing up and I want a new challenge! There is so much inspiration I manage to find and follow on Instagram and Pinterest … I thought it would be a great moment to add a little something, to push my creative boundaries and follow a feeling to want to shoot more portrait and people as well as the summer weddings.

A month or so later I received an email from Lannoo Publishing in Belgium with this opportunity. Anne Poelmans was putting together a book of people and places on the island and would I shoot the people. ‘LIFE IS IBIZA’ People Houses Life.

It felt like I had manifested it.

It was a pleasure to meet and photograph all these new creative islanders, some here since forever some just arrived, but all with something to put into our treasure.

Thank you Anne and Lannoo Publishing for asking me to be involved.

In her small rustic San Mateo studio Charlotte creates beautiful ceramics. Each piece so unique.

David has made a grand Hub for island artist and people alike. We can not wait to step into this oasis of restaurants, bars, cinema, art gallery, bakery, yoga studio and so much more at Los Patios.

Geoffroy upcycles and adds his creative touch to clothes, furniture, accessories. Sold from his shop in Ibiza town, Jeffrey’s and at the Markets all over the island. Funky stuff.

Melanie, made her own Ibiza oasis in the south of the island. Doing up a typical 70s Ibiza holiday flat to this heaven.

Saba at Treehouse Kitchen ibiza creates pop up dinners on different farms all over the island, serving healthy plant and seasonal based gorgeousness.

Victoria forever on this island, travels the world ( though mainly helping small villages in India), buying beautiful wears to sell in La Galeria Elefante, a  concept store set up in an old typical Ibiza finca on the way to Santa Gertrudis.

Tina another forever Ibiza girl, is a healer. She makes amazing vibrational medicine that can help with a huge range of health conditions.
