As a kid, I used to stare at the clouds in the sky for hours…I would admire their fluffiness, the contrasting colours, the shapes (‘look there’s a dog…and a rabbit!’) as well as imagining what they felt like (softer than … Continue reading

Monday Photo-day: Featured Photographer Julissa Shrewsbury


From this week on I’m opening up Monday’s Photo-day feature on Reflections from a Red Head to other lovers of the art-form, and other budding / up-and-coming uber-talented photographers (Please contact me if you are interested in being featured).

This week it is my pleasure to welcome the first photographer to be featured – Julissa Shrewsbury, the Director of New Work Photography.

About Julissa Shrewsbury

I had the pleasure of meeting Julissa in person a few weeks ago when I was the ‘victim’ of a photo-shoot. Well – that was a lie as I actually signed up for the photo shoot in order to get some ‘professional’ shots taken, and even though the nerves were incredible, Julissa made me feel so relaxed, and really helped to guide me through the entire process.

Julissa received her first camera as a primary school graduation present and immediately forced her little sisters to model for her so she could practise. She has always loved words and pictures, and grew up snapping photos and churning out fairy stories on an old green typewriter.

Julissa worked as a primary school and performing arts teacher for several years, sharing her love of words, pictures and also dance with children. One day she made the decision that she wanted more time to herself and went back to University to study what she loved – words and pictures. Julissa now runs her own photography business, and is fulfilling her passion for creating beautiful images that make women feel good….she also still writes stories now and then.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a beloved quote of mine, so I thought today would be opportune.

Today’s quote is dedicated to my fellow blogging friends who are struggling with the concept of calling themselves ‘writers’. My advice to you all – stop fighting it because you are.
