More amazing mothers and daughters committing to their relationships, spending an afternoon workshop with Carmen Ganne from Wildflower Retreats.

I have found being a part of capturing imagery from these afternoons so rewarding in 2018.Carmen helps to each person to communicate more effectively, and encourage them to be truly present with one another. 
You can find links at the bottom of this post for more information about what Carmen has on offer for the coming year.

“The impact of connection is magnificent. It means more confidence, more trust, more love. It also means positive decisions, strong boundaries and healthy choices.

It means the difference between knowing we can and being afraid, between standing strong and giving into pressure and between loving ourselves and wishing we were someone else.

I’ve seen the devastation from the lack of a solid foundation for women and girls. Not only have I worked for years with women and youth professionally, I have been one of those young girls myself. My heart aches every time I hear another woman say they wish they had known more, better or different.”

While everyone takes a quick break before the group yoga, I do some quick candid portraits of each pair. 


We do some silly faces and twirling, then I get the girls to squeeze their Mum’s as hard as they can.

“In a culture that fires information and expectation at us faster than we can take it in, Wildflower delivers the most essential message we all need to hear- we are enough. 

As a lifetime lover of movement and with an understanding of the value of experiential methods, I created a program in which the activities teach the material and women and girls decide what they take from it.

Being in relationship is our single biggest tool for cultivating happiness, experiencing joy and understanding ourselves and the world around us. We grow and exist in relation to ourselves and others. Reflecting and amplifying the good, bad and everything in between.”
