The day I met Yan Yan Yan…

These images were taken at the Yan Fam Way workshop in Phillip Island, on Monday.  For 24 hours, the lovely and incredibly talented  Yan Palmer  graced us with her open, honest, creative and quirky presence.  You know how they ask you in school – who do you admire?  Who do you look up to?  Who do you want to be like? And it is really hard to think of an answer outside of your Mum, or a teacher you had, or someone famous?  I have to admit, I was a little star struck when I first met Yan.  You know, I had the “I will never wash where she touched me moment”.  Without sounding too stalkerish.  I have followed Yan for ummm…..forever and I dreamt about the day, Yan would return to Australia for another workshop.  I am forever grateful to have attended this workshop.  I was in a rut with my work and needed to be completely motivated and inspired once again.  It has happened.  Blogging THIS is proof because it has been a damn long time since I have blogged.  Most importantly, I also got to meet and spend time with a bunch of  incredibly  talented photographer’s.  Thank you for your time folks x

They took me in for a few hours, shared with me their new part of the world, and their love. I was smiling almost the whole time.ADE6ADE046ADE016ADE2ADE47ADE076ADE1

Personal: For The Better

It’s utterly impossible to describe the joy this little treasure brings our family. The fourth child. The bringer of almost too much crazy.  Having a forth child has been bloody hard work (to put it politely) but I’m so glad we did.  Molly brings us a joy we’ve never known.  All of us equally – Oscar, Charlie and Noah couldn’t be more besotted with her while Stephen and I still tussle over who gets to hold her perfectly warm body after she’s awoken from slumber.  Our little lady is joyful, placid, mischievous, adventurous and truly scrumptious.

Right now, I just can’t get enough of our kids.  It’s like I’ve spent the past 7 years working so hard for them.  They were once my daydream and now my reality.   I have been working so hard – I could barely see them and appreciate these little human mischief makers for who they truly are.  But now, all of a sudden there they are, and aren’t they splendid!  Did I mention rowdy too?  Those people I grew are getting bigger.  Life is changing.  For the better.  And it’s good.  So good.

Xceptional Living

This is Krista, and  whenever I am having a totally off day with my four kids.  I always think about Krista.  You see, Krista has five kids!  I know.  Hard to believe right?  As you can see from the images below, Krista is incredibly fit, beautiful and healthy.  Most importantly – Krista is a lovely lady inside and out.  Krista is in the process of starting up her new business {like she isn’t busy enough} and approached me to take some shots for her.  Krista’s business is called Xceptional Living and it is all about good health, good exercise, good food and good life balance.  What we all want, right?  Krista is still in the process of setting up her website but in the mean time,  you can follow Krista here .  I really have nothing else to say about Krista but I would like to wish her tons of luck because she will need it when I start my program with her – after I return from my holiday in Bali : )

How unique
to this human experience
that we all
just wish to be
the most important thing
