From the first wedding I ever photographed, and still one of my very favourites @elsieandjoan 💫

I'll be transitioning this account from a purely personal journal to a mix of work with a few personal entries scattered throughout. I hope you'll enjoy following along as I share more beautiful captures such as this one - oh that warm and joyous love! 🌿✨

Lovely little wooden bowls and utensils for a tiny fellow starting solids. Six months already... how can it be so?!

Sweet baby cousins at the beach today, taking it all in (quite literally with the sand!) 💛 ... the hand holding in the last picture, though 😍 @stephhansen

Pleases me to no end how well these beautiful @kimwallace_ceramics shino mugs match this little jar of golden latte spice mix I found @thesourcebulkfoods . Have you tried this delicious anti inflammatory drink? Organic tumeric, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg stirred through heated milk of choice and sweetened as desired with a little honey or maple syrup. Healthy, healing and delicious! Swipe for a close up of these gorgeous mugs 👌🏽

Two years ago 💫
She looks like such a baby here, and although her limbs have now lengthened beyond recognition and the chubbiness is all but gone, she still says the sweetest things. She calls marshmallows "mushrooms" and Camembert cheese "gummy bear cheese". Marinated feta is "laminated feta". Today she asked for an "Australian bun" ... which took me quite a while to decipher: she meant an English muffin. The other day she told me she had a "crispy knee" ...upon inspection I discovered a scab. 😂
How could I ever correct such adorableness? Still such a baby in these sweet little ways.

Chatting away, telling me all about how excited she is to start kindy next year, but also warning me that she "might cry on the first day, Mum". Me too, baby... me too.

I never really had these feelings with Lalie; she's so fiercely independent and just charges ahead without any time for any fuss. But second time around, these feelings have caught me off guard. Is this a thing? Anyone else experience this with a second or subsequent child starting kindy/preschool/school? Maybe it's all dependent on personality? 🤷🏼‍♀️

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all ok
And not to worry because worry is wasteful and useless in times like these
I will not be made useless
I won't be idled with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know,
But they're not yours they are my own
But they're not yours they are my own
And I am never broken
........in the end, only kindness matters.....
This photograph I took of Marguerite's hands last year popped up as I was searching files on my computer. It instantly reminded me of this song... which then led to me listening to Jewel on Spotify. Talk about a blast from the past. It was like being back in high school. All the feels ✨

I posted a whole heap of photos on my old blog documenting Oti's arrival. It's been something like 2.5 years since I stopped blogging and made it private. Feels kinda strange opening it up again, but also kinda good. ✨( I popped the link in my profile ☺️)
