{happy easter friends}

easter sunday… its little moments of family tradition i miss most when living away from home, in a new, not so far away place!

audrey has loads of allergies so for us, easter has never really been about food so much, but more about craft, toys, books and clothing… for weeks leading up to easter i would search high and low for anything bunny or baby chick related so she didnt feel like she was missing out or life was unfair. at times she still did feel like it was unfair of course but i did my best to make her feel like our easter was just as special as everyone else’s, even without chocolate!

needless to say its near impossible to find the sort of things i would usually buy her here and i havent been game to have anything shipped yet cause of all the stories i have heard about things not arriving or huge taxes if they do! its been just over a year since we arrived and although i have seen the occasional post office around, ive never seen a post man in our area, nor have we had mail delivered…

the point of this story… there are no photos this year or audrey in cute bunny ears or sporting a cute easter outfit so im going to share with you photos i stumbled across from easter 2010 when she was 6 years old. they are just happy snaps in our old bedroom but i cant tell you how much i loved seeing them again! i cant believe how small she looks in these images! ive heard people say before how they grow up too fast and when you are in the chaos and turmoil of daily life it never feels that way but looking back, its gone way quicker than i ever imagined it would…

time, please slow down! wont you let me have my baby who is still happy to hold my hand just for a few more years? anyway, enough longing for days of the past! hope you all had the loveliest easter with your friends and family! we had a super quiet day… lots of swimming and time in the sun and then met friends for dinner. different to our normal but perfect none the less!  rowe x

Kirsty - Oh how cute is she!!! Indy adored seeing Audrey at the age 6 because she’s 6 too 😀 Hope you had a wonderful day xx

{for ashley | from our hearts}

at times i wish i was less connected… i curse technology and social media like im sure we all do!

at other times im just so thankful for all the wonderful friendships ive made online! for the connections with other mummas and photographers… one of those friendships is with the lovely ashley meiners wilson who is part of my 10 on 10 {aka kaleidoscope project}. such a sweet soul and wonderful photographer and im so grateful to have met her!

sadly, last week she lost her husband jon. it was sudden and so unexpected! i cant even imagine what she is going through right now and how overcome with grief she must be at the thought of a life without him and raising her two children on her own! it has been consuming my thoughts since i heard the news and my heart goes out to her…

if you want to see some of ashleys work, she did the most beautiful 10 on 10 post recently dedicated to jon! the love and tenderness of the images really touched me… see that post HERE.

at times like these, images sometimes speak louder and say whats in our hearts when we just cant find the words… ive come together with a group of 28 photographers sharing images that hopefully will bring a little love and light to ashleys day but also to help raise money to support her and her family financially in this time of need. to see the collection of images visit our site, from our hearts.

today im thankful for social media and im thankful you took the time to stop by and read this post. go hug your loved ones xxxfrom our hearts for ashley meiners wilson

{and then there were 5 // sydney family portrait photographer}

ive been editing these photos from a sydney portrait session late last year so i thought i would share them with you!

last time i saw these guys was in 2011. they were a sweet family of 4… then along comes ginger and now they are 5! you can see their first portrait session here. thanks so much for asking me into your home to capture the girls avril! i loved seeing how much they have grown and meeting ginger… so sweet indeed!

there is something lovely about coming back to images once a little time has passed too dont you think? i forgot how much i loved these photos!

when im searching for files i stumble across other long forgotten photos of my own and fall in love with them all over again! photography is such a powerful medium! these days, with digital photography and phone photography, we forget just how important it is to have real images off our phones and computers and on our walls where we can see them and enjoy them! i know this too well because i often choose the phone to take a photo over my ‘big camera’ because its just so easy and who doesnt love being able to share instantly?

in an effort to capture more real life moments of my family on my big camera ive been shooting a few personal projects! the last 18 months ive been photographing a monthly 10 on 10 project with the loveliest bunch of girls {aka : the kaleidoscope project}. i captured a whole month of images with my friend deb in our joint personal project, oceans apart. then another month with my friend kirsty doing a project called in this moment.  im also doing a weekly photo project this year with photographers from around the world sharing virtual postcards called wish you were here. im so thankful for the time and space to do these personal projects because its something ive often longed to do but never had the time to explore! doing these projects means i have so many beautiful photos of our adventure here in bali which makes my heart so happy!

im making it my mission to get my images into books and on my walls… i thought i would wait till we are back in australia but it doesnt feel like home without our family photos! the trickiest part will be getting companies to ship here and if they do, having the items actually arrive! wish me luck!

happy monday friends x
