9: Amy

Portraits - the Motherhood series. 

This is my dear friend Amy. Mother, tea lover and legendary mars bar slice maker. 

We met by chance in 1988 (!!)  As luck would have it, we went on to become mates in high school, flatmates in our twenties and to this day, remain best of friends. Our friendship has stood the test of time due to mutual love and respect, honesty, compassion and a good solid dose of humour. When we finished high school, Amy went straight into an Electrotechnology Electrician apprenticeship and became a lift mechanic. Imagine! This gorgeous girl of barely eighteen, having the courage and self belief to take on such a male dominated industry. She shrugs it off but I've always been in awe of this fact. So proud of her fearlessness. Amy was the first in our group of friends to become a mother. She's now mum to three wonderful, lucky children. After spending a year with her youngest, she's recently gone back on the tools part time. Stolen moments are spent indulging her Pinterest addiction. A feisty mechanic with awesome hair, marching to the beat of her own drum. She's amiable but she wont be influenced beyond her will, beliefs or care-factor. Amy has one of those genuine and endearing personalities that shines and everyone loves to be around. Anyone else drawing parallels between Amy and Charlene Robinson/Kylie Minogue?!

  1. Another brilliant shot Belinda. You captured her "off beat ways" her not looking at the camera as if to shows she marches to the beat of her own drum. And I particularly love your writing in this one.


Thanks for your comment, so nice to hear from you. Belinda x
