My name is Afoma. I’d like to thank you first of all for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I am a photographer and final year medical student with a love for reading and writing. I greatly enjoy nature and the outdoors and I consider myself a food enthusiast. I am happiest talking to people about God and His purpose, finding the perfect light for my photos and sitting with a cup of mint tea at the end of my day. On this blog, I share all the things that are beautiful to me; my thoughts on books I’ve read, life & productivity hacks, recipes and tips for making your medical school journey easier. At the end of every month, I share a superbly curated list of favorite things spanning articles around the web, podcast episodes, videos and personal life updates, an example of which you can find here.

You can view my photography by clicking the ‘portfolio’ tab in the menu above. If you’d like to book a session, make enquiries or just say hi, see the ‘work with me’ tab.

I also send out a newsletter every now and then, so please join my mailing list to hear first of any updates and receive the heart-to-heart emails I send out from time to time.


I hope you enjoy your time here, and if you do, please tell someone you think would too.
