“Wait right there while I grab my camera.” I said.

Thankfully he obliged.

Recently, I was taken down with a silly virus, feeling proper sorry for myself. Lounging in bed, I found myself wishing for exciting things to be happening… for adventures far and wide to be on my agenda.

Instead of having a full on pity party – I went back to that place of gratitude.

By dipping into my archives from our Big Hopeful Adventure and recalling the many amazing places we’ve seen this summer and passed through this year. Oh boy, there’s plenty to be grateful for.

Through various bits of un-used footage from this film and all I captured during our summer road trips, it was interesting to find a theme of “moving on by” through so many sights – always moving and experiencing so much.

This is the magic we’ve seen while travelling this year.

Film footage shot on Canon 5DMk3 and iPhone with a Lifeproof case using the 8mm app. 

{Other films from our adventures are herehere & here)

I’m using this film as a positive intention to see/do more of this – to keep on moving, to keep on exploring, keep on making films, keep on taking photos through plenty more adventures still to come… yes please. and thank you.


I put together the Moving On By film as part of my Creating Time Capsules course. One of the project ideas I suggest, is to pick a theme to shoot, gather those clips over a period of time and mix them all up, just like a collage.

I’ve had a few requests to run the Creating Time Capsules course again this year, so I’m going to open registration on Thurs 17th Oct for the course to start on Fri 8th Nov. I hope you’ll join us. For all the details of when registration opens - join my mailing list here.

All photos captured in Bali on Canon 5DMk3

Vanessa & Leon have a new baby girl… Meet Lyla…

During a newborn session it’s often the details and the in-between moments I love… and sometimes a story is best told in black & white.

On a rare sunny afternoon recently, this lovely couple overcame their nerves being in front of the camera and took time to connect with each other, have fun… and get excited about their wedding later this month.

I can’t wait… by the sounds of the wedding, it’s going to be adorable.

Today Annie & Navid’s wedding is featured on Rock My Wedding. I’m blown away to be on there and I know that Annie is thrilled, as she poured her heart and soul into her magical day. Charlotte from RMW had seen my instagram shot of Annie in her Vera Wang dress and contacted me to say she’d love to feature it… so my love of instagram has grown even more!

A lot of the details and main parts of the wedding are featured over at Rock My Wedding. So I thought I would share my favourite images of the day, rather than blog the whole story of the wedding. Here are the memories I loved capturing. The in-between moments. The details that catch my eye. It was such an honor to be part of such an amazing day – getting married 4 times in one day, certainly celebrates love…

Thank you Annie & Nav. I wish you all the best for future xxx

Carly and Ben are totally in love with their new son Acer, and I spent a lovely morning hanging out with them and capturing this special time. I remember those days just like it was yesterday…

And then because I love to tell a story…

So much kissing between this fabulous couple. Bursting with love BIG time. We hung out just before they flew off to Rome for a romantic weekend, before their wedding next month.
