{10 on 10 ~ bali edition ~ march 2015}


on the weekend audrey had a friend stay over and we decided to go to the skatepark. we planned to get the girls lessons because audrey hasn’t skated before. then we decided there was no need. her friend had skated before and although danny hasn’t skated for a while, he did skate throughout his youth and i think he is pretty good, especially in a bowl so we figured he could surely teach them a thing or two!

they honestly had the best time… we were there for hours and i cant believe how good they got so quickly, riding down steep ramps and being courageous enough to ride with all the boys.

me on the other hand… i was totally freaking out! hovering near by, helicopter parenting… so embarrassing! sometimes i just had to cover my eyes because all i could think about is the girls falling on concrete… grazed knees or broken limbs! needless to say, we all got out of their alive, injury free! the girls are already talking about the next time and audrey is dreaming of the perfect skateboard!

so you know how the 10 on 10 works. i link to one of my dear and inspiring friends so you can stop by and see what they are up to, then keep following the links till you come back here. go take a peek at ginger unzueta and how she sees things.

thanks so much for stopping by! if you do a 10 on 10 project, be sure to leave a link in the comments below so i can stop by and take a peek. rowe x

{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

Your daughter wears maxi dress like a star! Perfect on her!

Jess - A Little Part of the World - Rowe, Audrey looks gorgeous and that back and white photo is so stunning. I love it. I am going to request a new lens for my Birthday next month. Now I just need to read test a few to decide which one I want to get. I just wish they all weren’t so expensive. Jx

{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

Jacinta - Your photos are amazing! I am going to print off all my photography lessons again from clever cookie school and try and learn some more because you are super inspiring!

February 11, 2015 - 11:04 am

Jen - These are beautiful photos! I love the simplicity of them.

February 11, 2015 - 6:37 pm

Jess - A Little Part of the World - All completely gorgeous Rowe!! Audrey is divine!! I know you are the photographer but I would love to see photos of you!! I love the photos of Leda. 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

February 14, 2015 - 2:31 pm
