The Magic Of the River – A story of love, and nature

March 12, 2016

Many of my greatest life lessons are those I have learnt from nature. My time spent nestled in the beautiful rainforest of Kuranda taught me a great deal. I learnt to trust in the universe and the cycle of life. To adopt the pace of nature. To delight in the beauty of the little things. And celebrate small changes. To hold onto what matters most. To be grateful for what we hold inside us, as well what surrounds us.

The Barron River was of particular significance. It’s serenity. It’s grace. It’s power. When I was away from it, I yearned it. I yearned the feeling of river pebbles in my toes, gentle breeze and golden light shows. I daydreamed of washing away the pressures of life in it’s waters, and of sinking my skin into the comforting warmth of the sand. Of being connected, body and soul, with the earth once again. There is something magical that happens down by the River. This beautiful family honour that with perfection. No greater love have I witnessed. No greater beauty and celebration of Mother Earth. Here is the story of a magical afternoon picnic by the River. Spent with some incredibly beautiful humans. Some precious moments forever etched in my memory. This beautiful place and it’s people hold a very special place in my heart.

“The earth has music for those who listen.” {George Santayana}

My Mother – In all her beauty and {im}perfection

June 20, 2015

The most gentle woman that I know, is the one who brought me into this world. Her kindness and compassion defies words. She is the one who taught me what love is. Unconditional. Selfless. Fearless. Not to be questioned, but to be felt by the heart. She has a beautiful story. One of strength, compassion and forgiveness. She is the perfect balance of strength and fragility. The perfect role model. Incredibly honest. Selfless. A beautiful Mother. She has a wisdom that runs through her. So modestly, I wonder if she knows. We took these pictures on a magical afternoon whilst holidaying as a family. The wind was invigorating. The water, energising. The light, gentle and warm, just like my Mumma. I wanted her to feel beautiful. In her skin, her natural state. Imperfectly perfect. I think she did.

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other”. {Audrey Hepburn}

Zoe and Aidan – Ewingsdale Hall, Byron Bay

November 8, 2014

Zoe and Aidan’s special day took me to the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland. One of my most favourite places. Open fields, wildflowers, gentle breeze, and the background melody of mooing cows. It reminded me of home. Zoe comes from a large family, so the love was aplenty. She and the girls got ready at stunning Avalon Lea homestead, and then travelled a little way up the road to beautiful Ewingsdale Hall, for the love and laughter that followed. The flower girls danced in the rays of the sun. Guests enjoyed canapes and punch. Zoe and Aidan soaked up the magical afternoon light, in eachother’s arms. Ziggy played tunes for their guests, as the sun set over the mountains. Candles were lit, and the fun and laughter continued into the night.
