Okay 2012, you need to slow down!!! Really, I cannot believe it is just over a month until my first photography workshop, Planted with Light, and just over 3 months until Christmas… in some ways, I feel like the year has only just begun. I love looking back over these posts to remind myself what I have accomplished! It’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day busyness, so reflecting on how much you have actually done and achieved is good. I’m hoping this will be motivating enough for me to get my September goals done!
Sam and I have just returned from a weeks holiday starting on the Gold Coast where I photographed a lovely wedding, then we flew to Sydney to spend a few days, and DROVE back to Melbourne in a camper van. I adored Sydney. We had the most amazing weather, I think that definitely helped with my rosy view of the city…but I loved it! It reminded me of Auckland with the harbor, and the beautiful surrounding beaches. The drive back to Melbourne was long… I think we clocked about 1300kms in our camper! We saw some spectacular country on our road trip, it was so lovely to break up the normal routine. This past weekend I was so excited to be on the other side of the camera with Sam. Okay, excited and a little (maybe a lot) nervous!! We had the beautiful Leah Kua come to Melbourne and spend some time with us for a beloved session. It was such a fun, lovely experience. Poor Sam admitted it wasn’t his ideal thing to do on a Saturday afternoon…but he did really well. Leah shot all the images on film and I am beyond excited to see the results.
This side of September we are blessed to have friends and family come and stay with us. I’m looking forward to spending time with lovely people, getting workshop things done, and getting weddings edited and sent!
