Kate Hudson has revealed a new career move after being nominated for a Golden Globe award.

The actress, who has stepped back from the big screen in recent years, having starred in 35 films despite only being aged 41 - has focused on being an author and fashion entrepreneur. 

But forget using the best sewing machines, now Goldie Hawn's daughter has branched out into the world of photography after launching her own Instagram account dedicated to her shots.

Kate shared the news with her followers on Instagram in which she declared, "I love photography and a beautiful capture is like heaven to me. This one has my heart. Capturing three of my favorite people in a moment of joy and connection.'

She continued, "If you want to check out more of my simple snaps across the globe I started an Instagram called @thislovelylens (Shot on my @canonusa #canoneosr )."

And Kate has already captured 34 images using her Canon EOS R camera from beautiful scenery and breathtaking landscapes to candid family snaps. The page has also got 58.9k followers already.

The Duchess of Cambridge would be proud of Kate's chosen hobby as she too is into her photography, having used the same brand to take iconic photographs of her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

The snap Kate Hudson has shared, announcing to the followers of her career change is one featuring her mum Goldie Hawn, stylist Sophie Lopez, and photographer Laurie Lynn Stark. They are all sat around a table, laughing and enjoying themselves whilst having dinner.

And her subjects are blown away by her skills. Stylist Sophie wrote, 'Aww babas. I love this moment thank-you for capturing it so beautifully, and for the memory. I love you.'

Meanwhile, the shot has prompted her other friends to want Kate to share more photos of their time together. One wrote, 'Following and so excited. You should share the photos of us in Africa.'

And she shared a tender moment of her with daughter Rani, now aged two, who she has with Danny Fujikawa and captioned it, 'You, Me and A Timer #thislovelylens #canonphotography #canon #home'

Kate is also mum to son Ryder, 17, and son Bingham, nine, which she shares from previous relationships. She has previously opened up on her children having three different fathers. 

Looking youthful as ever, her skin looks flawless in her photographs and it's not just the camera to credit, as she has revealed her skincare routine products.

At the time of opening her new account, she shared a gorgeous picture of her daughter Rani and revealed, "I love a good photographic moment and I bring my lens everywhere I go. I thought it was time they sat somewhere on @instagram so if you're into it come follow to see @thislovelylens."
