About Me / Contact Info

 

A little about me - I am a freelance writer and photographer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I'm married to my best friend and we have one son who is 14 years old. 

I am a contributing writer and photographer for Gardenista, 91 Magazine and This is Your KingdomMy work has been featured in The Simple Things magazine June 2016 edition which you can see here and in the October 2017 edition which you can see here. I have also recently written and photographed features for In The Moment magazine. If you'd like to work with me on a feature idea, then please do get in touch via email on jenlittlebirdie@yahoo.co.uk

I also teach Basic DSLR Photography Workshops for beginners at the beautiful Chirpy store in Leeds. The next one is Saturday 12 May 2018. Sign up to Chirpy's mailing list here to be informed when tickets are available. 

I write mainly about slow and simple living - embracing the seasons, nature, my home, gardening and cookery. I've been vegetarian for 28 years. 

I'm passionate about sharing my love of Yorkshire.  I reviewed and photographed Burtersett Cottage in the Yorkshire Dales for the holiday company, Gorgeous Cottages and more recently, Gateways in Thornton-le-Dale. In Autumn 2017 I've also worked with the North York Moors National Park and Betty's. 

I love to capture the beauty of the UK, from it's stunning coastline, enigmatic moorland, historic houses to the most charming villages and towns I have ever had the pleasure to explore. Never without my camera or iPhone in hand, I love taking photographs of the outside world, especially landscapes, gardens, the sea and forests. 

If you'd like to work with me on a review of a place, accommodation, workshop or product, then please contact me on the email below.  I may very occasionally collaborate with selected independents or online stores. These will mainly be in the form of product styling, a review or a giveaway. These will be labelled as 'collaboration' posts.
