{we heart paper wings}

audrey luella got a new dress from one of our most favourite brands. you guessed it… PAPER WINGS!

what’s not to love about this dress. it’s covered in ponies for starters! it’s audrey’s first ever maxi dress and the cut is just beautiful…

she loved it so much she had to try it on within seconds of owning it and asked me to take a few photos. it was the end of a long day so we ventured out to the garden. i know… not very exciting as far as locations go but i wanted to share them because its my second attempt at using my lensbaby. i still feel like i have no idea what im doing when im shooting with it and i wasn’t exactly sure what i was going to get but thats kind of what makes it so exciting!

we took photos for a few minutes on an overcast afternoon. here are a few favourites. i am so in love with the b+w one. probably my most favourite photo of recent times! i really must use this lens more… feel free to share a link to your favourite photos with a lensbaby lens or even your most favourite image from sometime lately.

thanks for stopping by! rowe x

{10 on 10 ~ bali edition ~ february 2015}

we had a pretty quiet, non eventful weekend so for february’s 10 on 10 i am sharing photos from a rather ordinary day.

i think the ordinary moments will be the ones we struggle to remember. the small moments in-between all the big stuff so i tried to find beauty in the mundane, everyday this month.



a morning visit to the organic growers markets.


our sweet bali cat, pixie.


lunch at sushi tei. one of our favourite places.


pool fun with friends.


playing card games. i LOVE this game!


playing minecraft in her terribly messy room!


our garden.


leda and her ball. oh how she loves that ball…


my view. audrey lu in the afternoon light.

this is kind of cheating… this image was’nt taken on sunday like all of the others. it was taken monday but i can’t help but share. audrey has gone off to grade 6 camp! what? when on earth did she get so big? im not sure how this happened… i told her to come sit on the wall with her friends and let me take a photo before they left. she rolled her eyes but i said ‘you know i won’t leave until i’ve taken the photo so let’s get this over with’. i sent text messages about her food allergies to all the teachers last night to see she had enough to eat and she wasn’t missing out on anything. to see how everything was going. i am pretty sure they think i am some kind of crazy stalker but i don’t mind one bit because one of them called me this morning and was ever so sweet telling me everything and now i feel way more relaxed! i wonder if other parents miss their kids like crazy and go a little nuts when they aren’t near by? only one more sleep and she will be home… YIPPEE!


anyway, thanks so much for popping by! i am sure most of you know how this works… follow the link to see a little snippet of alana harris’s life, then keep going around the circle till you come back to me.

if you shoot your own 10 on 10, be sure to leave a link in the comments so i can take a peek! rowe x

ali deck - Rowe!! I think this is one of my favorite 10 on 10s. I love the simplicity and that shot with the glowing sun streaming in is just lovely. Beautiful work my friend! xo

February 11, 2015 - 5:28 am

peregrinationgourmande - Wahou Rowe, they are amazing pictures. I love the way you mix B&W and colors pictures. I didn’t dare to do it. I love the picture of the sun ray and your daughter behind, so dreamy. What games is she playing on her ipad? My daughter (same age) wants an ipad also. She’s stealing mine all the time ;)
Your 10/10 is amazing. I will follow the circle.

February 11, 2015 - 10:22 am

I can’t wait for my babies to get a bit older so they actually sit still for photos!! (not that I’m wishing their childhood away! ;)) Jx

{10 on 10 ~ january 2015}

my first post for 2015… hope you all had a magical christmas and new year!

we are home in australia for the holidays! its so lovely to spend time with family and friends and i really love eating at all my favourite places and stocking up on the things we can’t get in bali and miss terribly while we are away… spelt pasta, herbal tea and our favourite toothpaste. i can’t believe how much i love my toothpaste from home…

last year i didnt shoot as many personal photos as i would have liked… i am hoping this year will be different and i am super excited to be taking part in the 10 on 10 project with the most inspiring friends for another year!

today im sharing photos from a few moments at the beach in kingscliff. its the most peaceful spot with very few people around… i love capturing these kinds of days. audrey singing and dancing in the wind. truly beautiful in every way!

notice something different? a little bit of sparkle? audrey has begged to get her ears pierced forever… the months leading up to christmas she said it was all she wanted. i was so reluctant because i remember having constant infections as a child. i no longer wear earrings because one ear was so troublesome. how can i say no to that face though? boxing day we did it and she is so crazy in love with them! fingers crossed they heal ok in humid bali…


thanks so much for stopping by! be sure to stop by and take a peek at nicole’s sunshiny images. rowe x
