to boast...

...I hate to boast but I just have to tell you that this afternoon we had the most amazing swim with our local dolphins. A mother and her baby swam in close and were playful for the best part of 20 minutes before heading up the beach and then returning later - bet you wish you were here xx

an experiment

I am many things to many people however the role which I feel is at times the most important one of all is that of carrot cake connoisseur - yup that's me, I can't drive through a country town without checking out whats it's bakery has on offer and be sure I can direct you to all the best nearby offerings. 

And today I had a little experiment in making my own, you see the best of the best is not your typical type of carrot cake but more of a meringue like carrot cake with the cream cheese frosting in the middle and with a dusting of icing sugar on top. Unfortunately it seems that the recipe for this highly addictive cake is a closely guarded secret as I can't seem to find it anywhere which led to the need for experiment, and although it was rather dense, at places a little chewy and with plenty of room for development, it actually wasn't too bad. Together with a couple of coffees and two fabulous friends it indeed helped to make a perfect morning. 

Oh and if you want the best of the best - head to Marmadukes in Balnarring xx

You know you can't complain when you can stop and capture a few quick images like this on your way to an evening shoot. I had visited this specific location earlier in the day and was back to assess the evening light when these grasses on the lake caught my eye.

And where was I you ask....the gorgeous property that is home to the contemporary textile workshop Treehouse Textiles where I am lucky enough to be working with Emma and Sarah on some new images for the coming marketing season.
