Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! This year I’m most thankful to be home with my family. The last time I spent Thanksgiving in NYC was two years ago–crazy! I’m also thankful to be home for my brother’s 21st birthday tomorrow and my dad’s good health and feisty energy. I’m thankful for being inspired by the prospect of taking an imminent day trip with friends, being intentionally healthy in a mindful way, finally buying a juicer and embarking on yet another 5 day juice cleanse next week (wish me luck!). I’m also thankful for being inspired to handcraft a large chunk of Christmas presents this year and lastly, to actually and finally be working for myself; running two businesses that I absolutely love and which are completely fulfilling and being able to connect and work with such amazing, creative talented folk in both the wedding + fashion industries.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, I hope you enjoy lots of good food, good wine and good company!

{P.S.} Here are some old photos from a couple of years ago, during my fondest times spent in Woodstock, Germantown and Philadelphia. Because they make me happy.

Mon Amie

Rainy New YorkI recently came across these photos of from last December, when I came home for Christmas–my first time back since leaving for Australia one and a half years prior. During that trip I spent time with one of my closest friends, Lauren. We had brunch at Freeman’s, wandering the streets of New York City taking photos and later warming ourselves with bowls of soup in SoHo, where we also had the chance encounter spotting Chuck from Gossip Girl. It was one of those rare occasions Lauren and I were able to cross paths since we were both having our respective adventures on opposite sides of the world–me in Melbourne, she in Paris. These photos are a reminder of how far we’ve both come and all the adventures yet to be lived.


Kirsty + James | Brooklyn Engagement Session

I recently had the joy of shooting an engagement session for two of my favorite Aussies who happened to be spending a good chunk of Summer traveling across the US. One evening in California and much to Kirsty’s surprise and disbelief, James proposed to Kirsty–miles away from home yet comforted in each other’s presence–with a beautiful vintage ring, picked all by himself (guys, take notes).
When Kirsty, who happens to be an amazing graphic designer, suggested we do an impromptu engagement session before James’ gig with band City Walls Autumn Falls in Brooklyn, I knew she was onto something. I love how relaxed and casual Kirsty + James’ engagement session turned out, beer-in-hand and all. Kirsty + James, I’m so happy for you two and honored to shoot your wedding next Spring!
