I've always taken water for granted, as most people probably do. Never paid it much thought actually - you turn on the tap and its just there, an endless supply. That was of course until we moved to Tamborine and had to rely on tank water - and now I have become positively obsessed about it. Last week we only had about 30 days of water left before we completely run out.
Showers have become a race - I have a 3 minute timer in there, and the challenge is on to be out before the timer finishes. Everything is done with sparing water in mind. Wash the dishes with 1/3 of a sink of water. Flush only when necessary. Wash cars and water the garden NEVER!!
I cant tell you how excited we were last Saturday night when we received 4mm of rain... and then the next day, another 10mm! Hubby had the calculator out, working out the square metre-age on all our roofs and figuring out exactly how much water that gave us in the tanks.
The topic of conversation at school drop offs has become "How good was that rain on the weekend?" and "How many mils did you get?"
And after 3 and a half years living here, we've finally had to buy a tanker of water... and fingers crossed that gets us through until we get some decent rain!
I first met Michelle, Jason and little Hudson at their maternity session at Tamborine - we had the most beautiful afternoon light and what a gorgeous family! Here are some of the favourites from this session:
Not long after this, little Ashton arrived, and on his due date too, which doesn't seem to happen very often! The session was held when he was 10 days old - such a cute little man! I love the look on big brother Hudson's face in these - he loved posing with his new baby brother.
Thanks guys for asking me to capture these memories for you!
