Nice to meet you!
Capture by Lucy is a multi award winning lifestyle blog founded in 2012 by Lucy Heath, a natural light commercial photographer.
We are the Heath family - Richard and I met at school in the lower sixth form and got married in the school chapel in August 2005. Sammy was born in 2009 and Ollie completed our family in the summer of 2011.
We bought a 300 year old farmhouse in September 2014 and call this our forever home. Our neighbour in the cottage behind us grew up in our house and loves to tell the boys about her childhood, sleeping in the very same attic bedroom they share when all the garden and fields were full of dairy cows.
This blog features home interiors, recipe and craft ideas, party styling, inspiration for our renovations and our travel adventures. We visit my brother in America every year and over the summer we went to Greece and Spain, ending the school holidays with a week at our beloved family holiday home on the Dorset coast in Southbourne.
We work with like minded family and lifestyle brands to develop creative original marketing content, showcasing products and experiences to engage their target audience. I write about the places that inspire me, the stores and boutiques I think my audience would want to shop in and content that is helpful and will make them smile. My family loves fun, we share our happy times and our positive attitude to life. I regularly speak at conferences and events to help others develop their photography skills and am well respected and connected within the parenting and lifestyle blog communities. The UK blog community is supportive and thriving and it's a pleasure to be part of a new generation of entrepreneurial parents working around their children in a creative way.
I write with one person in mind - you. I want you to feel as though we are sat together, on my sofa or in the garden with a cup of tea, talking like two old friends. Blogging is about creating a digital album of memories for my millennial babies, being able to record the milestones but also all the everyday moments in between.

If you'd like to be part of our happy gang get in touch and let's see how we can create some beautiful and inspiring content for you.
We have represented a number of brands in Ambassador roles including Mark Warner holidays where we shared our sun and ski adventures and created imagery for their digital and print marketing resources.
I have worked hard to establish a loyal and connected readership and a significant 79% UK based audience on Instagram with over 32,100 followers, and over 527,000 likes in 2015.
I host Instagram takeovers and create Instagram content for lifestyle family and interiors brands looking to promote their products with visual stories and high quality imagery.
Are you a colour lover?! I host the successful #capturingcolour gallery on Instagram with over 64,600 posts linked up since the Summer of 2014. This is a great way to engage with the audience on Instagram without paying for sponsored posts! I collaborate with brands to promote their products and services through #capturingcolour giveaways and themed competitions.
With the recent changes to the way in which Instagram will curate a user's feed, it is even more important that brands look to post aspirational and inspiring original content.
You need a bank of content, that goes beyond the catalogue shots.
Real imagery that can sit alongside your corporate shots. Let me help you!
Capture by Lucy also runs a kindness project. The Surprise Project is celebrated all over the world with creative people sending happy mail to each other.
This blog only works with brands who share our positive approach. We will not endorse companies who promote online gambling or unethical products in any way.
My commercial photography and editorial work is featured in lifestyle magazines, online sources, marketing literature and my first recipe book for the international gluten free bakery Honeybuns, based in Dorset, will be published in 2016. I shoot lifestyle product imagery at home and on location.
I want to make your products come alive.

Contributions & Collaborations
I write for a number of print and digital magazines and websites including the Center Parcs blog Under the TreeTops and have written a quarterly home interiors feature for their Village Life print Magazine.
I am part of the family lifestyle blog ROOST.
With the help of my husband Richard and our sons Sammy and Ollie we create lifestyle content, a real family promoting and partnering with brands we love, in a positive and inspiring way. I am passionate about creating unique content for the brands I collaborate with, content that sits alongside their company blog style and ethos with high quality professional photography and original story telling in the copy.
My aim is to connect with our shared followers and readers, engage a wider audience with beautiful imagery that will be found long after the publish date. Content you want to pin, enhancing your Pinterest boards with your brand, your products.
I have had the pleasure of collaborating with national best loved brands as well as smaller business looking to gain exposure. I am proud to work with brands seeking to reach an audience with a passion and appreciation for authentic, aspirational, styled content.
