HELLO!!!


It has been a very very long time since I last wrote a blog piece. I remember those days, writing about my photography work, while on my lunch break. I used to squeeze them in any chance I got. I missed it after a while.

So here I am.. BACK AGAIN!


So what am I going to be talking to all your beautiful people about?

Photography.. obviously! but also all the joys of family, growing a bubs, navigating a business, and enjoying this crazy thing we call life.

It will be real, honest, raw and probably a little irreverent at times.


So how about I start this with a little bit about me.


I'm not going to bore you with details on why I became a photographer, because at the end of the day, no one cares. All you want to know is, can I take a good photo and what the service will be like.


So.. I'm going to bypass all that crap and instead have a chat about my introduction to the country life.


For all those who don't know a little about me. I was a city girl. Born and raised!! For me the ideal of life was to live in a little apartment in the heart of the city, take spin classes, eat out and visit the beach on my off times. All I wanted was the hustle and bustle of the city.


So imagine my surprise when I met my fiancé who lived in a small country town. I remember driving the first time to his house and looking at all the farm land thinking "what the heck have I gotten myself into?"

But of course... that all changed when mr country boy stepped out of his house.

I suddenly changed from WTF to OMG! Since then it was been a complete transformation. This die hard city girl had found her country man, and has discovered that the country was actually really lovely.... GREAT in fact.

I've learned the importance of quiet in the morning. I discovered my love for rivers, trees, mountains and forests.

I grew my first veggie garden... and then killed it shortly after...

I raised my first set of calves, a lamb and discovered what the heck an akubra was.

So here I am. Living on my 8 acre property with a pet long horn cow.

I spend my days, telling my blood hound to shut up, fishing balls from under the table for the sausage dog and yelling at the kangaroos to bugger off out of my drive way.


It's. messy, its filled with dust and its just beautiful!
