{10 on 10 project ~ bali ~ may 2013}

its time for another 10 on 10 post… but first, i have so much news i must share! so much is going on right now!

first up… i will be in sydney shooting again in less than a month ~ i cant believe how quickly this trip has come around! i feel like i was just there!

im excited to announce i will take 3 more family sessions but that is all so email me asap if you want me to shoot your kiddos!

these are the times i have available ~

friday 7th june | morning or afternoon

saturday 8th june | morning or afternoon

have you heard of the what if conference? i havent been to one before but i have heard from more than a few friends who have, how amazing they are! so you can imagine my excitement when i got a message on FB from one of the creators, jen bebb, about bali as a possible location for a conference in august 2013! after a few messages back and forth… the location is decided and the dates have been announced! read more about it here.

are you coming? why dont you come so we can hang out… its going to be all kinds of fun!

if that wasnt enough excitement for one month… i got an email from the amazing, ever so talented deb schwedhelm a couple of weeks ago! she wrote me to say how awesome and inspiring it was to read my 10 on 10 post about our move to bali for the adventure of a lifetime! we messaged back and forth and a few days later, it was decided that deb will come here to bali and i will host the most fabulous and fun workshop for her! nope… im not joking… august is honestly going to be the best month ever i think!!!

on a side note… some of you probably know deb and i talked last year about me hosting a workshop in australia. it never ended up going ahead for one reason or another. all i can think is, everything happens for a reason and how amazing to have that not happen then and be able to have a workshop here instead… bali is the best location for a workshop… its going to awesome!!!


DATES: august 12th – 15th
LOCATION : villa sayang d’amour, bali
CLASS SIZE: limited to 10 photographers

registration is now open… to find out more info see this blog post.

notice it is just a couple of days after the what if conference? how amazing to come to bali to hear inspiring people speak there and then spend 4 days in a beautiful villa with us! even if you are just dreaming about it… email deb so you can find out more! im pretty damn excited!

lastly… i have been getting christmas enquiries the last few weeks! that seems insane to me but clients are wondering if they dont book in for my june session, when will i be home shooting again! i need to make sure there is enough time after the shoots to get galleries up, for clients to get their orders finalised, for me to edit the images and send them to the lab or framer so they are shipped and on your doors early december! at this stage i will be offering sessions in september and then wont be returning to australia till 2014. weekend sessions are very limited because i already have a couple of bookings.


sunday 15th september | morning and afternoon

monday 16th september | morning and afternoon


friday 20th september | morning and afternoon

saturday 21st september | morning and afternoon

sunday 22nd september | morning and afternoon

now for my photos… it was a fairly ordinary day here in bali! actually, i had all these grand plans to make my 10 on 10 special. we were having dinner at a cliff top restaurant and we would walk around to the temple in the ocean. the light would be all pretty and dreamy and we would explore somewhere we had not yet been. in the end, the day went pear shaped and this is what i got instead…

life as it is most days in the timson house, except these were taken over 2 days… the first half were taken on the morning of tuesday 7th and the second half were taken on the afternoon of wednesday 8th. this is my first 10 on 10 where not all images were taken on the same day but i figured i didnt want to miss a month so this would just have to do! im going to make a coffee table book of our year and im almost there cause i have been doing this project now since august. i LOVE it so much!

7.20am ~ morning light

7.25am ~ scrambled eggs {she is laughing cause she threw some at my head!}

7.30am ~ audrey says ‘no more photos’

7.32am ~ bye bye

8am ~ morning juice preperation

a few minutes later ~ drinking juice and answering emails

11.46am ~ groceries delivered from bali buda

{they made audrey bread and i love that it comes in a bag handmade with newspaper addressed to ‘rowina’}

1pm ~ blackout {cant work so decide to swim instead}

no 10 on 10 is complete without a self portrait or two! danny was laughing at me trying to take a photo of myself reading… clearly i wasnt able to read and take a photo at the same time… he made me feel rather silly!

4.46pm ~ meeting a new friend at motel mexicola | seminyak

my new favourite spot! the food is fresh and tasty and they do a great caprioska served in a plastic cup… i love this place!

{note : deb schwedhelm workshop attendees ~ im think we might have a few drinks and a meal here!}
