Love that my days include hanging out with sweet families for an afternoon, getting cuddles from little bubs and secretly hoping my two boys grow up to be as kind-mannered as this oh-so-grown-up seven year old here.  Not to mention secretly coveting the various Banjo & Matilda pieces around the house, a luxurious cashmere label owned by Belynda and her husband Ben. Thanks to The Grace Tales for letting me tell this lovely little tale, and to the Macpherson family for having me around!  xo

Couldn’t believe my eyes when I stepped into this beautiful home to photograph the gorgeous Georgie and her kiddos Wolfe and Kinga for The Grace Tales.  Apparently once an old lolly factory, they had converted it to a stylish and practical warehouse perfection.  It was such fun to hang out with this bunch, their scooting ability was way beyond mine, as was their knowledge of Star Wars.  I think I need to read up a bit before my boys beat me to it too.  Thanks so much for having me around!

We were also lucky to be filmed behind the scenes for this shoot by the talented Sam Hastwell.  His little vid can be seen here, love his work!

Spending mornings with sleepy newborns is fast becoming a favourite of mine.  Their tiny perfection is so evident of our genius Creator and the love that surrounds them is undeniable.  So thankful I get to call this a job, and so happy I got to meet this little guy in all his newness!  Much love Amy & Troy! xo

Samuel is a six-year-old from Queensland who is currently undergoing treatment for a tumour in his kidneys. Thanks to the many volunteers that represent Make-a-Wish Australia and QANTAS Foundation, his wish to become a pilot came true for a memorable day where he and his family flew to Sydney where Sam flew his first flight (in the simulator) from Sydney to Honolulu. It was a fantastic day and I felt so privileged to be surrounded by generous and warm-spirited people.

For most of the day, Captain Samuel was treated like a VIP. Just like you’d imagine, he walked through Sydney airport with some fanfare, flanked by his team of co-pilots and air stewardesses. As part of the tour, we travelled on a bus to see the gigantic A380. Our bus, full with Samuel’s team and a few of the media crew, pulls up to the gates of the hangar. A security guard boards our bus to check that each of us have our security passes. Excitedly someone announces “We’re here with Captain Samuel!”. The security guard didn’t get the memo about Captain Samuel and called his supervisor, given we didn’t quite have all the required documents. A few moments later, his supervisor arrives and verifies that everything is ok. The security guard apologises for the hold up and immediately one of the air stewardesses says, very sincerely, “No, thank you for doing a really good job.” Of all the moments I witnessed in a day filled with sincerity and respect for one another, that’s one that stuck with me.
