Photos from the Forest

Without not knowing, there is no knowing. Answers need questions just as much as questions need answers.

As a photographer I am lucky to live in a naturally gorgeous part of the world with beautiful friends who not only let me photograph them but actively ask for me to. I am a lucky lady and had a blast taking these photos recently down by a local swimming hole. Tanz you are one hot babe! Thanks a bunch x

Photos of Baby Naming Ceremony

Quote from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

I was invited to photograph a baby naming ceremony in a bamboo forest recently. It was an honour to be a part of. Ritual is scarce in our modern western world and this day was beautiful to behold. The bamboo forest where it was held is in Crystal Waters Eco-Village in the south-east Queensland, Australia and boasts many varieties of bamboo. I am hoping to organise to take more photos in that idyllic setting soon. Thank you to the gorgeous families who shared such a precious day with me.

Inspiration. Lost and Found.

So after my last post I am happy and a little excited about finding my mojo again so quickly. My inspiration, motivation and discipline had gone walk about for a little hiatus only to return just when I needed them most. We embraced warmly and then went inside for bikkies and tea. So in honour of their return this here post is all about inspiration and what inspires me.

Lovely Vision

From the pits of what I think was despair

Overwhelmed by it all

I now find myself

Ecstatic

Small moments of pure

Elation

Just being

Loving

Living

Loving

Life

There is beauty in the everyday

In close to every way

Blinding light

Follows blinding dark

Stop looking

and you will see

My vision restored

If only momentarily.
