Hello, I'm Becs. Welcome to Catching Sundust.

About the name. One of my strongest childhood memories is jumping on a pink eiderdown in my grandma's spare room. As I jumped, dust particles danced in the bright sunlight streaming through the window. Through Catching Sundust I hope I can catch some of those fleeting, magical moments that are otherwise lost and through them live fully and creatively, savouring my everyday ordinary.

About the blog.  I started Catching Sundust in June 2011 just as I discovered my passion for photography. I originally started it as a place to put my photographs and find my voice (here's my very first post) as I made the transition from career girl to motherhood. Catching Sundust has gradually grown and developed and has now become the creative space where I share my photographs, writing and creative journey. Photography remains my weapon of choice in noticing, discovering and celebrating the everyday details of my life.

To find out a little more about me and my creative journey you might like to check out these posts:

I have been overwhelmed at the connections I have made, and continue to make, in my journey and this has been a real and unexpected gift. I hope you'll join me in celebrating the ordinary details of our lives, after all:

Because it's our ordinary, we believe it's everyone's ordinary. It is not.

And I'd love to connect with you too, so please feel free to email me: catchingsundust[at]gmail[dot]com

I live in the UK and am happily married with an eight year old daughter, the Moo, who features here from time to time.


  1. Your blog looks so inviting, especially for a fellow photographer! :) can not wait to dive into reading more! And your blog name - awesome!

  2. Becs - I totally love your "About" page. It is so perfect. I have a feeling I will have to do a few drafts and revisions before I get exactly what I want, but you have nailed it.
