Capturing ME in 2018 | Life

I'm back from my photography girls weekend away and let me say, it was absolutely, without a doubt, exactly what I needed! Aside from getting the chance to meet some fabulous ladies who I've long admired, it was a really good chance to relax and recharge. I've actually come back feeling really re-energised and happier than I've been in a long time. I honestly didn't realise just how badly I needed that time away.

Backyard Prisms | Life

Right now I am currently on the Gold Coast attending a retreat with a lovely bunch of photographer friends, eating good food, drinking good wine and talking non-stop about photography and all things life. So far it's been fabulous, and I know it's going to be bittersweet when it's time to go home.

Capturing Life in 2018 {April} | 52 week project

What a crazy month April was!!! Kicking off with Easter Sunday, followed the next day by a mammoth trip to check out the Sydney Sea Life Aquarium and Sydney Wildlife Zoo for ellaslist, then a couple of weeks of school, the launch of the FilmingLife Academy and throwing in a couple of weeks of school holidays to boot! It has been full-on and we really did pack in a lot this month!

I also found the time to go and hang out with Kylie from Kidgredients and her beautiful family to help them update their family portraits. I've blogged some of my favourite images from their family session over on my business blog and I would be so super appreciated if you have the time to go check them out by clicking here.

Auburn Botanic & Japanese Gardens | Kid-Friendly Sydney

Week Two of the holidays started yesterday, and the girls and I made the most of the beautiful weather we've been having (not too hot and not too cold for a change!) and headed over to meet my Dad, sister & nephew for a visit to the Auburn Botanic & Japanese Garden.

Holidays {are here again} | Kid-Friendly Sydney

It's finally the school holidays here in Sydney, and unlike a lot of parents I actually really enjoy the holidays. It gives us all a chance to rest and recharge, and I love the fact that I don't have to make lunches or put on clothes every day if I don't feel like it. Or wash uniforms or wash lunchboxes sticky with yoghurt!

Capturing Life in 2018 {March 52WP} | Photography

March was a pretty good month, all things considered. There was a couple of weeks there that I felt in a bit of a rut creatively, but I sucked it up, whacked my creative lens on my camera, made a film and pushed myself through it. And things are going to continue getting busy as the year goes on.

At the beginning of May I'll be heading up to the Gold Coast for a photographer's retreat and I'll have a couple of days to shoot some families and/or couples. If you're on the GC and you're keen to have some photos done let me know, because I'd love to have a few shooting opportunities and am happy to do you a really good deal. I'll do you an even better deal if you're happy to let me share your photos on social media & my website!

Easter Splash | Life

Hooley Dooley! Lemme tell ya, today really snuck up on me! The long weekend really threw me and I totally forgot that it was Tuesday today, I was pretty sure it was Monday! So I'm sorry that I haven't really got much prepared, it's amazing that I managed to remember to post anything at all, I was about to head to bed!

We had a fabulous Easter weekend, capped off by spending the day yesterday exploring the Sydney Sea Life Aquarium and the Sydney Wildlife World. The girls and I went on behalf of Ellaslist to check out the attractions and share our experience & photos. It was a lot of fun, but man am I exhausted now!
