Shooting through 2017 {April} | #52weekproject

Oh April, you probably have to be one of my most favourite months of the year. The days are still warm but not sweatingly so, the evenings are cool, but not to the point where I need to be wearing socks & 2 pairs of pants (I'm not the only who does that right?). Autumn is hands down my favourite time of  year, and I'm so thankful that the school holidays happen in April too.

School Holidays {the most wonderful time of the year} | Life

I've come to the conclusion that I am one of those parents that likes school holidays. Scratch that, I LOVE school holidays! No lunches to make, school uniforms to wash, we don't have to be out of the house by a certain rushed time, and most importantly? I have my Punky back, the one I don't dread picking up from school because she will inevitably be so tired & worn out from learning and being on her best behaviour all day that the afternoons & evenings till bedtime are a nightmare that Dave and I will barely survive.

She works hard {for the money} | Photography

Hoooo boy I have I been busy! I guess like with anything, work begets work. I'm not complaining, I'm getting paid to do something I love and there aren't too many people in this world who can say that!

This weekend just got I spent Saturday afternoon with the most delightful family of 5, taking some photos and filming some video. Then on Sunday I spent the afternoon & evening filming a beautiful wedding with some really lovely people. It was a wonderful experience, and a real learning curve, being the one filming rather than taking photographs. I can't wait till I have time to sit down and go through all of the footage from the day and start putting it together.

Taking Stock {March 2017} | IBOT

I've been sick the last 4 days. It all started last Tuesday afternoon when I got a call to pick up Punky from school. She said she wasn't feeling well, and that she had poked herself in the eye earlier. I just put it down to being over-tired and worn out from a big first term of school. After resting on the lounge for an hour after she got home from school she was back to her old self, terrorizing Zee.

And then, on Wednesday night she came out to us just before bedtime complaining of a really sore ear. Alarm bells started ringing. I checked her temperature and sure enough it was nudging 39. So we gave her a dose of Panadol to help with the pain of her ear enough to let her get some sleep. It was around this time I noticed that I wasn't really feeling great either.
