Hayley Joy up close with our real food provider, who provided me with the most wonderful details.

I signed up to do an iPhone photography course, to learn how to get the maximum benefit out of my iPhone 6S+. To say I’m blown away by what what I’ve learnt in the last two months, would really be an understatement, but more importantly I wanted to share the incredible outlet it’s given me.

Overseeing the running of Hayley Joy production where we manufacture all the various collections for Hayley Joy retail, and overseeing the running of Hayley Joy retail is extremely demanding. I’m the Boss, so you all know what that means, long hours and loads of pressure.
Since I started taking photos of anything that moves and everything that is pretty, I cannot believe the difference it’s made to my temperament. I have discovered macro photography which requires me to zoom in on a subject and really, really concentrate.

My big problem is, that whatever I do, my mind finds a way to go back to work, as there is always such exciting stuff going on, but I also know that I have to have a break, and discovering the wonders of photography on my phone, has given me a diversion that is inspiring me on new levels, and that is in turn, calming me down and unleashing wonderful new creativity. It’s also getting me outside more, and away from all my devices, besides my phone of course, but that is now being used primarily for taking beautiful photos.

I’m always on the hunt for great subject matter for my mood and style boards. I’m spending lots of time in my own garden and I am continuously blown away by the colours in nature. I have been watch a group of Aloes that have begun flowering, and I am in awe of their beauty. I have fallen in love with Macro photography and especially taking close up photos of Bees, so I share these photos of our very special food providers, and their food, with love.

❤️ Hayley
