Jess

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&Jasmine

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!

Emile&Annika

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).

Nathan&Tracy {+two}

Oh how I love this little family!

This is the second time they’ve welcomed me into their gorgeous home, and allowed me the honour of capturing all their beautiful love.

We had so much fun playing in the autumn leaves, exploring the wonderful gardens of Redlands Estate  and devouring delicious hot chocolates by the fire.

It’s actually kind of hard to stop taking photos with this four.

They’re truthfully just great company.

Thank you so much for having me again Nathan and Tracy. It was an absolute pleasure.
