Brrrr its been a little bit chilly lately hasn't it? And as I'm sure you all know, a partly-renovated house isn't exactly the warmest! Those tiny little gaps let all the cold air in and makes for a super cold start each morning in my kitchen. Ugg boots are a required item in our home, and we seriously cannot wait to get a fireplace installed (its on the to-do list).
I'm generally wearing 3 layers (including a massive puffer jacket) as its so cold in my office. I was sitting up here editing the other morning and feeling sorry for myself because the thermometer on my desk said it was a lovely 9 degrees in the office! My 'mouse' hand is permanently frozen.
Our poor dogs have been feeling it too - mind you, they are 99% indoors and are both sporting nice comfy jumpers. And not only do they wear jumpers, they have beautiful warm fluffy beds, AND we cover them in blankets at bed time. It makes me laugh how whenever one of the kids walks past the dog beds, they automatically tuck them in with their blankets - Talk about pampered pooches, they've got us all trained perfectly haha!
Hope you are all staying warm!
Gorgeous baby Liam was a delight to have in the studio for his newborn session earlier this year! I loved incorporating some family farming items in this session, which included some whips and dads Akubra hat, and I think these worked perfectly with the dark wood backdrop in the studio.
Liam also has his very own pair of tiny boots to grow into, how cute are they?
Thank you so much Philippa and Justin for an awesome session with your gorgeous little guy! Here are some of the favourites from our session:
Its been a LONG time since I've done a running event - 2 years I think. So it was SO awesome to be able to do the GC30 a couple of weeks ago, with some great friends!
The lead up to the event was a bit stressful with my right ITB twinging and aching any time I went for even a short run, and my left hamstring had been niggling for several weeks as well... I stopped running two weeks beforehand in a bid to rest it, but they were still a bit sore the night before. I decided to tape my right ITB and hope for the best.
It was a beautiful morning on the Gold Coast - although I did have a moment, getting up at 4.30am, when I thought "What the hell am I doing this for?" Also, the queue for the toilets was a bit crazy - we waited 45 mins for a port-a-loo and thought we were going to miss the start - eeek!
In the end, the injuries held up ok, the course was amazing (a mixture of road and hard-packed trails, all along Main Beach) and not too busy or crowded, and the time spent with friends was awesome. We did the 15km event and I loved every minute of it (despite the early start!)
I purchased the event photos last week and love how I'm smiling a big gumby grin in just about every photo (sharing the not-so-gumby ones here lol) - what a blast - cant wait to do it all again!
Beautiful baby Neve was a star during her newborn session in the Tamborine studio earlier this year - mum and dad requested "Natural and neutral tones" and I have to say, they just worked perfectly with this gorgeous little one's natural complexion!
Big sister Layla was so sweet and loved giving her new sibling some gorgeous cuddles. We also managed to get a cute one of both girls in a tutu - what adorable little princesses!
Thank you so much Melanie and Jayden!
