Charlene began building the products that became Coast & Clearing in late 2013, as a way to destress from a grueling position in corporate accounting. Previous experiences with endometriosis and chronic pain created an additional incentive for her to build a self-care routine that had previously been lacking. With a groundswell of interest and support, she left corporate life in early 2015 to concentrate on C&C full-time. Coast & Clearing focuses on intentional product creation (with careful vegan-friendly sourcing) to help clients carve out time for rejuvenation and a bit of luxury on a budget.

Ward Creative Studios

I'm Keesha Ward - a self-taught photographer, whose goal is to create an exceptional client experience. As a Life's Milestones photographer, what I truly love is the ability to capture beautiful, intimate moments within the family unit, including both maternity and newborn portraits. In my earlier years as a Lead Infant Teacher in Higher Education, patience, calmness, and joy became centered in my nurturing approach. The best time to photograph your newborn is when they are between 5 days and 2 weeks old. I know that deliveries are unexpected, therefore, we can make a tentative booking around your due date, and once your baby is here, we can arrange a suitable time for your portraits.
