About us

British and living in Los Angeles, I'm the mother to Reuben Jack born on 2 May 2007 and Callum Andreas born 6 November 2008. I'm a work at home Mama, owner/photographer at Catherine Lacey Photography and creative writer. Reuben's name means "Behold a beloved son" and he happens to have CHARGE syndrome, has undergone 17 surgeries including open heart and countless hospitalisations. Callum is his much longed for brother, his best friend.

My passion for SLR film photography started in the 1980s whilst backpacking in South East Asia, and during my trips to another 50 countries across the globe. I've been shooting digitally for the last 10 years and shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and lenses including 85mm/f1.8, 28-135mm/f3.5-5.6, 50mm/f1.4, 24-70mm/f2.8, fisheye, macros and now the 70-200mm/f2.8 and the 35mm/f1.4.

I spent 10 years in senior roles in advertising & marketing for investment banks and later Transport for London, in my profession as a Chartered Marketer.

Welcome to our journey as told through thought provoking words juxtaposed with eye catching imagery and the sweet faces of my two little loves. We love to visit fun and beautiful new places every week.
