Tracey Ayton  An interior, food & lifestyle photographer who likes to do a little bit of styling too.

My happy place ~ Styling and shooting lifestyle pics. I have a goal to balance my work load so that I have more time to do this. Its important to make time to do the things that you enjoy, as it feeds the soul and it attracts more of what it is that you like to do. Those flowers, that straw bag and that bench all have stories behind them and all of them are authentic... It truly is a lifestyle shot and perhaps if time allows, I may even start blogging again so that I can share those stories. You never know, stay tuned and have a lovely weekend 💜

This little Nursery was designed by @amandaevansinteriors .... Isn't it the cutest? Pink is definitely on Amanda's mind cause yup, she expecting a little daughter of her own to arrive in a couple of weeks. Congratulations again Amanda!

Spent the morning with a new friend out here in "T-town" @the_pauhaus .... in whom is another creative so it was really nice to connect finally! Can't wait to collaborate with this girl! Love her.

Yeah ~ It's that kinda night to have ice cream..... a nice local strawberry kind. 🍓

Hope you all had a nice Sunday. Here's some really pretty black sunflowers to end your weekend off with. Again, thank you @idreamofgreenbeans and @schoolhouse_farm for these beauties.

Not my usual kind of post but visiting @schoolhouse_farm today, I was totally on "farm time" reveling in the open farm air, chickens, flowers, dogs and the simple life. Can't wait to go back to this special place again and thank you so much Emily @idreamofgreenbeans for showing us how it's done when it comes to collecting eggs from Sally the hen and thank you to @the_pauhaus for introducing me to @schoolhouse_farm !!!

Couldn't help but post another angle of these fresh out of the oven Dhalias.... so fun!

Hot out of the oven!!!! It's finally Dhalia season!!!!! Love having time off this week to do silly little vignettes like this one. Hope you're all having a nice summer so far.

My attempt at neutral potted plants... Until I map out our garden, these pots will do the job.

I have always wanted to try making almond milk and finally got around to making some... It was amazing! I actually don't mind it plain but feel free to add strawberries, blueberries... honey, vanilla... the list goes on. In a pinch I buy the store bought kind but this is such a treat! Probably be making batches of the stuff. There are plenty of websites on how to make almond milk but I simply let the raw, unsalted almonds soak in water overnight, then blended them by adding the nut and water mixture, I add just a touch more water, blend. Sift out the almond grinds by running the milk through cheesecloth. Add any honey, vanilla, fruit..... whatever and you've got a really good nutritious snack! Enjoy! I'll be making ice cubes with my left overs.

Had a nice relaxing Sunday, catching up on both new and old books. I was also trying out my latest find... a vintage wicker chair.... Turned into a rather perfect lazy summer day.

Sharing a snap I took while shooting with @cindy_gray_mast This was her grandfather's old bike and now Cindy uses it.... Course we had to add peonies in the basket!
