Hannah and Scott Howells and their daughters Betty and Maggie are missing their extended family. They say this is the time they would all be getting together. Maggie is missing her school friends but loves playing in the garden.

People love to snap defining moments in their lives – even more so in the age of Instagram.

Often they might be of birthdays, weddings or anniversaries.

In this unprecedented time photographers Katie Barrett, from Cardiff, and Kate Stuart, from Barry, have taken the opportunity to capture the lives of those living under lockdown.

They both use their exercise time to meet and picture people.
