time to relax...

...I've found the perfect spot to do it - Whispering Vines Cafe in Dromana, great food with a stunning outlook and a seriously fantastic fit-out  I was there a little early in the day to sample the produce from the vines however I am sure to return for lunch some time soon.

Thanks for all of your support in 2012, have a safe and happy New Years Eve and I look forward to bringing you more in 2013.

done & dusted...

I do honestly love everything about Christmas including all of the fuss and preparations for the big day, however what I love more is that feeling you get waking up on Boxing Day morning to know that it is done & dusted for another year, that the craziness that comes with December is behind us and that we can now really start to enjoy Summer.

commissioned...


I'm currently working on a private commission where I am to capture a particular stretch of beach at various times of the day with varying levels of light. 
During these busy days before Christmas it has been the perfect project to ensure that I slow down a little.
I hope you are all enjoying the crazy lead up xx

seasons eatings...

Well the tree is up, the treasured heirloom Nativity Scene is on display and last night after a late evening of celebrations we even went looking for some Christmas lights (my mother in-law will be thrilled to hear that with the little one in tow I finally get the thrill of finding Christmas lights).

I have officially starting gifting this years seasonal eats and whilst I'm not straying too far from the standard xmas cake and cookies....this year the cookie baking is been left to those who receive their well presented ingredients, fresh is always best I say (and it saves me some time)!

I'm sure it was only August yesterday and I'm sure that I say the same thing each year.....hope you are enjoying this busy festive period.
