I am Natalie / Miss Aniela, a fine-art photographer partnered in life and profession with Matt. We live in Devon, UK with our little girl Lilith and our two cats, in a mansion home which is also a photoshoot set, ‘Barocco House’.
In Dec 2013 we lost our first child, our son Evan, who was diagnosed with fatal Potters Syndrome at 32 weeks in utero, carried lovingly for 3 further months before being peacefully born at home. The name of this blog, ‘Rockstar Lavender’ describes our son in his goodbye outfit, and the juxtaposition of the two words describes our ‘crunchy’ but cool life as we move forward with the same passion we gave to Evan. 😉
I journalled our ‘rainbow’ pregnancy on this blog. Our healthy daughter Lilith arrived in April 2015 and she brings us joy – and exhaustion! – every day.
This blog follows our ongoing life adventures.
