My name is Kriss MacDonald. I’m a mother, photographer, blogger, journalist, cook and dreamer. I’m British and American thus both Mum and Mom to my fraternal twins Luce and Theo (8), who were born in London. I’m married to a geek genius.
As a photographer I want to share the wonders of nature and beautiful places to visit in visual and lifestyle stories.
I’m on a quest to learn about nature and inspire my children to find happiness in the wild outdoors and become young naturalists.
Let nature be your teacher” – William Wordsworth
We now live in West Sussex in the English countryside, surrounded by woods, fields and wildlife. We also recently spent two years in The Hamptons – which is known for its stunning beaches – in New York State, USA (where I launched my blog formerly called Over there to Here). Previously I was a city dweller and worked as an international journalist for AP and NBC News in London, New York and Asia. I also studied at Harvard University, Beijing Language and Culture University, SOAS, and Amherst College.
Wild About Here is a blog about outdoors and nature adventures, beautiful places to visit, and living creatively with camera, kids, recipes & books.
Indoors our home is filled with books, art, crafts and photography projects. And more books. But also one of my great but simple pleasures is cooking a meal for family and friends to sit down and enjoy together at a table in the kitchen or in the garden. Luckily my husband does the washing up!
