Have you ever felt stuck? In a rut? Like you’re just treading water and barely keeping your head above the surface? I spent some of last year feeling exactly that. I felt I was doing the same thing every day and achieving nothing at all. I felt like my photography was same old, same old, […]

This is Joy, I bought her at the Melbourne Markets. She may seem like an unusual purchase but I love her. She is a permanent reminder for me that no matter how I am feeling, I can always make a positive impact on someone else. The blog writing side of my photography business is Essential […]

I was doing some long overdue editing this afternoon and I came across this shot of the roots. As I was looking at it, I started thinking about the things in our lives that become roots. The bible is full of instructions about the ways to avoid having things that shouldn’t be there take root […]

In last week’s blog, I spoke about not letting the log or the hard time you are in spoil the view around you. We can tend to be so fixated on what is right in front of us that we forget to look at the bigger picture. You can read more about that here. This week […]

This week I went back to photography for inspiration for my blog. The photo that I have used is one that I took on my recent trip to Tasmania. It is from one of my favourite spots – Liffey Falls. Every single time I stand in this spot, I think the same thing “I love […]

Last week I wrote a little bit about how my family is in an in between season and it’s a struggle at times. You can read more about that here. We have a few things ending and no clear direction on where we are heading. I am not great at leaping into the great unknown and […]

The last line from it was that some days, it’s actually ok to just be a human in a quiet and […]

On Saturday I had the best experience. I got to go to Adelaide Zoo and “feed” the meerkats. I use term feed lightly, really they just jumped all over us and ate food from our laps. There is a beautiful white meerkat at Adelaide Zoo; she has a skin condition which caused her to lose […]

Something a little bit different for this weeks blog. This week I thought I would share something that impacted me recently about tiny happy things. I was scrolling on Facebook, no doubt wasting time when I should have been doing something else and I saw a post by Nanae Hoffman called Tiny Happy Things. It […]

I took this photo in Tasmania. The plan was to post it on my instagram feed with a caption along the lines of “Be the colour in someone elses world today.” As I was thinking about it, it occurred to me you can colour someone’s day in a good way. You can also colour someone’s […]
