Notes (02)

So, just to catch you up, I’m trying this new thing called ‘Notes‘, where I write stuff on my blog. I know, profound right?

My aim is to share everyday observations and thoughts, as well as stories and general sentiments on life. I’m also opening up this forum to your words too. I haven’t had any takers so far…..but it’s early days, so I won’t go and cry in the corner just yet.

Ok, re-introductions over, let’s talk about power ballads and getting your groove on.

Guys, this is seriously the best combo. And I know you already know this…because how could you not? But I’m going to remind you anyway.

Clearly, power ballads on their own are already awesome but if you add movement to the mix, you’ve hit a double whammy of winning my friend.

I don’t thinks it’s possible to play a ballad at full volume and not feel compelled to get up and dance.

Or if not move, at least passionately sing along or lip sync with full gusto.

I saw a guy doing this in his car once and I wanted to hug him. Mostly because he was clearly a total legend. But also because there’s beauty in seeing another human so unashamedly enjoying the moment.

I have to admit, I’m disappointed in myself for not utilising the genius power of music more often. Dancing around my bedroom and belting out an Adele/Roxette/Queen/ *insert your preference here* tune, is way more therapeutic then looking at Facebook for the ten billionth time.

So next time you’re feeling a bit ‘meh’. Don’t scroll your newsfeed again. Pump some tunes baby.

I’m fairly certain you won’t regret it.







My darling friend Jess came over today for a little visit.

She lives afar and we don’t see each other often, but when we do it’s as if no time has passed at all.

That’s what I love about great friendships.

I asked if she would wear my vintage shirt and pose for me in the backyard.

She said ‘yes’.

And that’s just another reason why our friendship is awesome.





Notes (01)

Welcome to the first entry of ‘Notes’, a journal of sorts, and a place to share anecdotes, honest thoughts and sentiments on daily life. I don’t mean like really deep, philosophical musings. More so the little things. Simply because sometimes it’s nice to know someone thinks a little like you do, or has experienced the same stuff you have, or just because a funny story can brighten your day.

To be completely honest, I’m kind of hoping the stories shared here won’t always be my own. Fingers crossed, if I ask, maybe someone else will let me know their thoughts, experiences, or a cheeky anecdote from time to time.

I’ll type out your words and do my best to match them with a pretty picture. If it makes you feel better, we can even leave it anonymous. Now’s your chance to moonlight as a phantom guest blogger (check that off your bucket list).

My only request is that we keep it positive, thought provoking, comical or uplifting in some way. Cause let’s face it folks, the internet doesn’t need more negativity.

Deal? Good.

So lets begin with this one time my 3 year old and I were happily lying on the lounge room floor together, engaging in a friendly chat.

As we talked, he took it upon himself to poke my bare legs. Little pokes first and then little slaps.

Little hands went slap, slap and Mama’s thighs went jiggle, jiggle.

What a fun game.

Upon watching my legs for a little minute he suddenly announced: ‘We haven’t had jelly in a reeeeaallly long time!’

Thanks kiddo.

It’s so reassuring to know my wobbly bits remind you of a gelatinous dessert.

Good thing your Mama has a sense of humour….or it would be straight to bed with no supper for you.











Jordan and Jasmine were married on a beautiful, crisp and sunny Winter’s day.

The gorgeous bride you see, is also my darling sister.

So this wedding was especially exciting for me!

There’s nothing quite as wonderful as seeing one of your siblings so very happy.

Jordan and Jas, thank you for asking me to be a part of your amazing day and for letting me take pictures until your feet were sore, and your noses chilled.

Love you both lots!





This gorgeous pair received a photo session with me as a gift from their lovely family.

I was so excited about spending some time with them both, and capturing a little bit of their beautiful love.

These guys were just amazing! So happy and relaxed.

Plus, they came to the shoot with a yummy picnic and a guitar.

High fives all round!

Annika and Emile, thank you so much for adventuring with me.

I wish you both a lifetime of joy….(and delicious cheese).
