My Inspiration

Mar 10, 2022 | Posts

Firstly, I would like to say Hello and thank you for your interest in my work. My Name is Lissette, I also go by Lizzie, bebe (spanish way of saying baby and used by my husband) and  by MUMMY x 1 million, which brings me to telling you I have two children, one boy and one girl, my boy is sweet and cuddly, my girl is strong willed and decisive, and yes She is totally a mini me and my son is totally my husbands mini.

I was born in Miami, with Colombian parents. I spent 7 years of my life in Colombia, where I learned to speak perfect Spanish, and 23 years in the US between Miami and Atlanta, the rest have been here in my lovely home in Bedfordshire, UK.

People often ask me why I have left the US and the answer is always the same, I moved here because  my husband is British and I also dreamed for most of my life to live in England. I find the history, the culture and landscape absolutely bewitching to me. It is very unlikely I would ever move back to the US, although things change, but at the moment and for the past 10 years, UK has my heart. Also my kids were born here and they love their home.

My kids are the reason I became a photographer full-time for three reasons:

Firstly, I did not want to leave my children in nursery full-time, I wanted to be there every second of their young lives with them. I was very lucky Steve was able to look after us without me having to go to work full-time. Secondly, I wanted to create beautiful artwork, as an ex film student my life has been revolved around the arts and creating. My family is also very creative, My mum is a beautiful painter and my dad an amazing Musician and producer, so in our home the Arts are always encouraged. Lastly, I wanted to be able to give people the gift of everlasting art, tailored specifically for them.

I love working with people and I love creating beautiful images that will be cherished forever.

I hope to meet you soon!
