Wedding Belles | Photography

Oh my gosh, this last week has been so hectic! I can tell we're getting down to the business end of the year because the pace of life just keeps getting quicker & quicker. I am so looking forward to the school holidays, and in particular, the long weekend coming up.

We're heading down to Albury to celebrate my cousin's 40th birthday and have a little time out with the family. It's exactly what we need to have a chance to slow down and recharge the batteries, ready for the last charge of 2018.

Location Scouting {Eloura Beach, Cronulla} | Photography

I'm shooting a wedding this Saturday and in preparation, I decided to head over yesterday to check out where it's going to be and get a bit of an idea on what kind of light I'll have to work with on Saturday.

The wedding is being held at Eloura Beach at Cronulla and it's a beautiful spot. After the lovely weather of last week it was a bit of a shock to get there and find out how cold it was, but of course, that didn't stop the kids from wanting to get wet!

3 Days of Spring | Life

On Sunday the weather was glorious. Beautifully warm in the sunshine, blissfully cool in the shade, with just the hint of a breeze and a riot of colour from the blossoms and blue sky.

Yesterday was even better.

And today is shaping up to be just the same.

Tomorrow?

From the Cutting Room Floor {February 2018} | Photography


Time to share a few more photos that for one reason or another didn't make the cut when I first shot them, and that I've now gone back and edited because, well, I just really like them. If you'd like to know more about why I'm sharing these now, pop over and read this post, which will explain it all.

Capturing Life in 2018 {July} | 52 week project

July was a good month. Despite having lots of work on we still managed to have lots of fun with the girls, and have a little 'parents only' Hawaiian holiday adventure (which also included some work, but honestly, I'm not even sure you can call it work when you're having fun doing something you love!).

So I've gotten a little behind in sharing July's 52 week portrait project images and I thought I would share them today. We are currently without internet which is super frustrating as my job depends on it, but hopefully the technician scheduled to arrive sometime today will be able to find the problem and get it sorted for us asap.

The Making of a Fairy Garden | Life

One of the gifts Zee got her for her 5th birthday, was the supplies to make a fairy garden from my Dad. There was enough for both girls to be able to create their own little space in the garden, and it was perfect timing because we have been thinking about doing something with the old herb garden bed and this was the perfect solution!

It's not quite finished yet, and we still have some clay fairy houses and other ornaments to decorate and then put in the garden, as well as some new flowers in bright colours that we want to add in too.
