looking back… 2012

when I set out to grow this little business about a year ago, I never thought I would experience what I have so far. this year, I have been privileged to be able to spend time with some incredible people and share so many special moments… both to them, and I. I’ve shot some beautiful weddings and some incredible families. I’ve also shared some special news and special times from within my own little family… what I have taken away from this year though, is the relationships that I’ve formed, the stories that I have been able to be a part of, and in turn, been able to share. 2013 is going to be a fantastic year… with more stories to tell, weddings to experience and early on, a brand new website to share with you… I’m super excited about what’s ahead. I hope that you and your families have had a wonderful christmas and that you have a truly wonderful new year. you may have seen some of these special moments already throughout the year… but in looking back, here are some that I have found particularly special… families, weddings, babies, pregnancy, kids, mums, dads, husbands and wives…

the pogmore family…

a bit over a moth ago now, I shared with you some of the time I spent with sherridan, scott & willow, as they welcomed their new twin daughters (and twin sisters in willow’s case) into the world. a couple of weeks ago, I spent some more time with these guys, now settling in to their new life at home. I know sherridan & scott are sleep deprived. you could never tell. I know that they are feeling busy and tired. you could never tell. what you could tell… is how much they completely & utterly adore myla indigo & macy jade. I don’t know how they do it… but they truly make it look easy! they do what parents do. they do what family does. they love and support each other and their three beautiful little girls. they’ve got such a story to tell… and three adorable little girls to tell it about. but seriously… how they make it look so easy (and I know it’s not)… I’ll never know!

a little bit of news…

those of you who know bec (my wife) and I, and some of our story, will know that even to have been blessed with our first little princess… addison, was nothing short of a miracle. so that makes this little bit of news… that the third little ferris is to be arriving in april next year, even that little bit more special. throughout the time that bec has been pregnant with our two kiddies, I really didn’t take the opportunity to capture our story, document that period in our lives… which is why, this time, for baby number three… I will! here’s a few little pics of bec, glowing at twelve weeks, as well as some pics of the most excited brother and sister I’ve ever seen… I definitely won’t bombard this space with anything too overwhelming, but I will share a bit of this story with you over the coming months…

mike mccarthy… the lion’s share

simply put… mike mccarthy’s latest album ‘the lion’s share’ is, exceptional. in my opinion, his best album to date. big call, I know, as there are so many that I have come to love over the years. but it seems, this album just hits a spot. brilliant writing, sensational playing, and produced exceptionally. if you haven’t picked it up yet, you can do so over here… you will not be disappointed. mike & his wife sophie along with kris, benny & miles have been touring to release ‘the lion’s share’, and on the weekend, they came home. home, that is… to avoca. mike’s stomping ground. tucked away in the beautiful avoca beach picture theatre on friday night, supported by mikes mate dan hannaford we were all able to experience mike releasing this piece of work. bringing it home. sharing… ‘the lion’s share’.

mike & soph… two weeks to go

in two weeks, these guys will be married. so this week, we piled in to lenny (the landy) took a little drive and spent the afternoon chatting about their wedding day. amongst other things, mike measured out the aisle soph will walk down, soph had a little practice, a fill in bouquet was found… a classy one at that! a bit more of a drive, some more hanging out, more picturesque spots were found and all the while, I got to share in the excitement and anticipation of what is going to be such a special, epic wedding day. I cannot wait to be able to share their day with them. I am sure it is going to be out of this world.

mandie and ben… engaged

last week I spent the evening with mandie and ben as they celebrated their engagement. this week (careers calling), they have packed everything up and are headed across to the other side of the country to start a new chapter of their lives together… so last friday afternoon, before family and friends arrived to spend the evening celebrating their engagement with them and wishing them farewell as they head interstate… we spent a bit of time enjoying some spectacular sunshine, at the equally spectacular terrigal beach. congratulations ben and mandie…
