Our Story

This is us, welcome to The Skye's the Limit.

In 2020, our lives changed forever, with the arrival of our beautiful daughter Skye and a global pandemic not too long after. 

Before 2020, I spent lots of time travelling the world as a journalist, listening to people's stories and taking their photos...... 

 

Then 2020 arrived, and we all collectively slowed down, turned inwards and the things that had always sustained me - the outdoors, relationships, the sea and creativity took centre stage....

And it's how The Skye's the Limit was born - a love affair between nature and creativity. Instead of just photographing people, I started photographing the sea......

And instead of using my hands to create stories I started using my hands to create colourful clothing for friends...

I've been working as a journalist for 17 years, so changing tack and doing something different, outside the box, not in congruence with all that I had been and done up until this point, didn't feel like an easy course to navigate. Because of that: "what will people think" line in my head. But I took the plunge..... 

Thanks to friends far and wide, in encouraging voice notes, filling me with confidence and courage, boldness and reassurance. The sea helped too, on cold January mornings, with frost on the shore, the water reminded me that anything is possible and that the sky really is the limit.

And we all need to be reminded of it, the next generation, and this one too.

So there you have it, our short story about how The Skye's the Limit came to be, it's about the sea, prints (photographs) and patterns (waves and ripples) from the sea (on jumpers).

And there's lots more to come when we can get our camera outside the county to travel further afield.

We believe that no matter your cards, time spent in nature or immersed in creativity, does you wonders.
