Introduction: Meet our new editor Polly

Hi I’m Polly,
I live in London with my husband and two young children Raff and Elsie, where we strive to live a simple life in the city. As well as raising my kids, I’m a portrait photographer at Little Kin Photography and blog at A Modern Mama. Some of you may know me from my instagram page polly__loves. I’m really excited to join this inspiring team as contributing editor and to work alongside some super talented creative women.
I’m drawn to and inspired by the imperfections in life… the little messes, the beautifully ordinary moments. These are the ones I often seek to capture with my camera. I love to document the chaos that is family life and the love and sense of fun that overflows from it.
One of my first assignments for the magazine is to write a series on photography, helping our readers to stretch themselves with their camera skills and grow as capturers of everyday magic. I can’t wait to share my first post with you all.
Whilst my work and being creative is really important to me and my soul, motherhood was my calling. I love hanging out with my kids, going on walks in the forest, collecting leaves and acorns, eating messy picnics on old rugs even in the depths of winter. I encourage lots of creative play at home – often inspired by nature and the things we bring inside from our adventures outside.  For me, simple play is the most imagination inducing, and makes my heart happy.
