im so sorry im posting this late… its such a crazy time for me with client orders that need to be delivered prior to xmas and the chaos of packing our house up in preparation for our year long overseas adventure in bali which is fast approaching! there were also so many i loved and i just wanted to include them all! im just so pleased im photographing my family and friends every month, even if im breaking a few rules here and there…
anyway, im super excited to be sharing photos today from our recent holiday in nz! i knew before we left that i would choose one day to photograph our adventures for my project 10 this month.
for those of you who dont know, my mum married a kiwi when i was a teenager and i spent most of my teens there. nz is like my second home… its a place that makes my heart happy!
i moved back to sydney when i was 19 years old and during my early 20s, i visited every year at least once, some years more frequently so i really could not believe that in audreys 9 years of life she had not yet visited when it is so near! with our huge move to bali fast approaching it made my need to visit more intense so i made it happen, even if the timing wasnt ideal. i just wanted to have a few days away from the pre-christmas chaos and it was oh so lovely…
it was a time to see old friends. to spend with family. to eat and be merry… to explore places long forgotten ~ we even drove past my old house! it was colder than i imagined it would be but every bit as beautiful as i remembered!
i dream of moving back there one day, even if just for a short while! one day soon it just might happen…
