What do you do when life gives you lemons?

Hesh and Smruthi are definitely two of a kind.  Instead of a regular first look before their wedding ceremony and reception, they requested that we take a little fun session of them and their bridal party around the theme of lemons.  With good humour and the most beautiful, colourful attire, we really couldn’t get enough of this gorgeous party who styled every little detail themselves.  Hope you enjoy these favourite frames from our session as much as we do!

First up, my apologies for taking so, so very long to brush off the dust on this blog.  The past few weeks/months have been all sorts of wonderful and energy-sapping at the same time.  For me, this third little baby of ours definitely intends to make her presence known, and in between first trimester sickness being double the intensity of what I remember (and lasting well into the second), and two little mischievous boys that have passed their fair share of sniffles and viruses my way, I’m really looking forward to feeling 100% again sometime soon!  Luckily enough, my little one managed to get a place in the same daycare as his brother and Mondays are now blissfully quiet and a lot more productive which hopefully means I can get this little virtual space back on track too.

Alice and Videl’s wedding was honestly all kinds of beautiful.  Seriously, check out those smiles.  With the glorious sunshine coming out in full force to check out this gorgeous couple, we had a blast snapping their heartwarming first look in what felt like a secret garden, followed by their ceremony and reception both held at the delicious Biota Dining.  I particularly loved both of Alice’s dresses and that jewelled headpiece she chose, as well as the gorgeous styling of gumnuts, woods, and ferns which adorned the bridal table.  Perfection!

 

January Photo A Day 2015 // Day Thirty-One

Truth be told I didn’t take a photo today, the last day of all days. I was out working at a wedding I ended up staying back late for and I missed my goodnight to these two. So I’ll borrow an older frame from a week or so ago.

These two can drive me crazy in a short minute, but I miss them almost immediately when they’re not around. Funny that. The best bit about heading out to work is coming home. Home into the arms of my boys, their soft little kisses and big squeezes and just enjoying our togetherness. My home. My heart xo

It’s the eve of the last day of this project and I feel like I still have so many stories to tell. Like about how much I love this man. This pregnancy seems to be a little tougher than the last two (maybe I’m just getting old), and this love of mine has certainly given more than I knew he had to make up for my blobbiness. While I slept the days and nights away and lay on every couch I could find, he made sure the rest of the family still functioned like it should. A friend of mine once told me I would love my husband even more once kids came along and at the time I didn’t really understand. But now I do, and it’s so true. His patience and grace is something I look up to, his strength and gentleness a beautiful example to our boys, and the way he connects with them simply makes my heart happy. Still looking forward to growing old together.

They are growing before my eyes today. I drew a hopscotch on the floor and they wrote their names in chalk by the side. Well, Luke’s is rather artful and Jesse does his number plate style (“J-E-5-5-E”) but they are little milestones all the same. The weather was perfect today so we ate dinner together as a family in our outdoor area and I relaxed about the proximity of the pool which normally has me all anxious. The golden evening seemed too good to waste so we walked all the way to the shops for dessert which we’ve never done before without the pram and the boys literally ran all the way, up the hills and all. Yup. My babies are all big now.
