turpins, turmeric, terrain

I have wanted to throw turmeric at Steph ever since we shot that wedding in Fiji together 
and the maiya ceremony where it is rubbed into skin inspired me
Today's wonderful outing with these gorgeous guys - Erin, Tara, Steph, Steph, Hannah and Fred - was the day!
I shoot alone most of the time and forget how much fun it can be to work in a team. So many thank you's to Erin & Tara for location scouting, Steph for being an excellent turmeric thrower, other Steph for being my always ready muse and all the hands that held my inquisitive little toddler, lens caps, etc.

'tis the season

Anyone who knows me, knows I get pretty excited when I see wattle spring up all over the place like neon popcorn. It's almost nearing the end of the season and I hadn't taken any wattle photos, so I snuck a couple in today before winter departs and takes the last bursts of yellow with it.

Ness & Andy

I do so love a wintry country wedding, oh yes, yes, I do.
We couldn't be happier for our friends Ness and Andy who make quite the dashing couple indeed.

Congratulations to our beautiful friends Ness & Andy

Ellyse & Adam - a surprise wedding

I loved being a part of this sneaky surprise wedding. Ellyse and Adam, who are off to Hong Kong to live for a year, planned everything so perfectly well, that it went off without a hitch. 
I'm totally sold on Jewish weddings by the way. The dancing is so energetic and fun, you can't help but be swept up in it.
And how beautiful is Ellyse's early 1950's dress find?

1 year with Syd

I can't believe a year has trickled away since we welcomed our little man Syd into the world.
I never thought becoming a Mum would be quite this wonderful. Despite the occasional difficulties, I look forward to seeing his animated face every morning and melt with every hug and smile. It's definitely changed me. I can still tap into the melancholy beauty of all those 20's anxieties and the 'sads' when I need to but it seems so much safer now - like wearing a snorkel in a big black lake - now that someone else's happiness is priority. It's ironic really. I feel I have grown gentler and more confident as a person. I'm incredibly grateful for everything I have; my health, work and most of all my wonderful family and friends who are all honesty and heart and way too good to me. 

Happy Birthday Bean! xo

3rd wedding anniversary; leather

This last year has been all about cocooning and hiding away in the safety, bubble and wonder 
that a new little member of the family brings, so I thought it only fitting to celebrate 'leather' in the comfort of my husbands beaten up ol' jacket.
