I’m so happy to be out and about a lot more working with business clients across Northern Ireland and helping them to tell their brand stories again as restrictions ease and re-openings beckon. So while I’m on the road I’m still trying to squeeze in some business doorstep portraits to help small independent local businesses tell the world they’re back in business.

So when Lucille at Sandhill Experience got in touch last week I was delighted to be able to take a slight detour on the drive back from a client shoot and capture her and the lovely Phoebe outdoors at home.

Last year I had the absolute pleasure of enjoying the launch weekend at Lucille’s Sandhill House, an amazing specialist retreat venue focused on health and wellness in Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal. With a background in physiotherapy Lucille teaches pilates, Qoya, yoga and facilitates yoga nidra meditation. I can personally vouch for her calming presence and the care and detail that goes into the whole retreat experience at Sandhill. Everything from food, to the surroundings, to Lucille’s teaching, helps you unwind.

Like so many of us lockdown has brought some reflection for Lucille and I was thrilled to hear she’s working on some exciting plans to bring the Sandhill experience home… and with these beautiful surroundings right on her doorstep, what an amazing place to bring it home to!
