{a little story and a mothers day wishlist}

i feel so blessed to have some of the most amazing clients!

i photographed a gorgeous family last year… i cant believe i havent shared this session yet! i love so many images but for now im sharing just this one photo…

meet little miss olive!  isnt she just beautiful?

within minutes of arriving at this families super cool home i was gushing over all olives pretty things… i was in love with olives extremely fashionable wardrobe! her mumma, kelly, sure has a great sense of style and she seemed to love all of the same things as me! dont you love that, when you meet someone and you have so much in common right from the start?

anyway, the shoot went brilliantly and i was absolutely taken with olive by the time we were done!

fast forward a month or two…  kelly receives her collection of images and to my surprise i get the most beautiful letter and a gorgeous gift in the post… i was so moved by her thoughtfulness and her sweet words… it makes my heart so happy when someone loves their images! i especially loved that kelly felt inspired to follow her heart after spending just a little time with me…  i have no idea what i did to inspire her but i do love that she took the time to write me and tell me so because who doesnt love mail!!!

needless to say, we have become fast friends because shes awesome!!!  i started to think about what she could do that would make her heart sing. i suggested she should start her own blog sharing all the things she loves… gorgeous rooms, stylish kids clothing, recipes…  anything and everything really!  i offered to help kelly set up her own blog and give her a quick lesson on how it all works. we have made plans to spend a a few hours together one day soon and i cant wait to see how amazing her little adventure will turn out!

in the meantime…  with mothers day being tomorrow and kellys blog not being a reality yet, i just couldnt let this gorgeous post she wrote go unshared!  she has such a way with words and how great is all the stuff on her wish list?  pretty impressive for her first ever blog post!  i think i just might be sharing more posts from kelly in the future so watch this space…

The School

I would love nothing more than a Sunday to myself to learn, craft, create and be inspired (and as a bonus be surrounded by fabulous crafty people!!).

Megan Morton’s… Uber stylist extraordinaire created a space called ‘the School’ at Koskela – its the perfect place for all things crafty! Courses range from the amazing flowerbombs, garland making, cupcake-baking to the sublime Rachel Castle screen printing or try a Master Class with Megan herself!

So much cooler than school ever was and any afternoon not spent with Dora the explorer in the background sounds like bliss to me!!

Great books are always a winner in my house and this newbie by super-stylist Shannon Fricke is top of my list!!

Pip Lincolne’s book of crafty-lovliness has been on my wish list for some time too…

Castle Sheets and Pillows

Ask most mums what they actually want for Mothers Day and im betting they probably say a sleep in, more sleep, breakfast in bed etc you get the picture!! So why not spoil mum with the most amazing bed linen from Castle and Things?

Bright pops of colour, retro prints, all cotton and made in Oz makes me happy just thinking about it!

Moments in time that last forever. A photo shoot, album, acrylics, a frame etc us mums dig seeing our little ones in print!!

Feed Bags

Us mums are pretty awesome at giving and for a pressie with a conscious, look no further than the Feed bag!

Inspired by Lauren Bush, these canvas totes have a kinda special purpose too.. buying one feed bag, feeds one child for one year through the UN World Food programme or maybe more, depending on which bag you purchase!  And did I mention it looks pretty eco-chic too!!
