A little family shoot that took place in Autumn (yes, I am behind in my blogging!) with some dear friends of mine celebrating 20 years of marriage with some family photos. What a beautiful memory this day was; Leura is a special place for them and Autumn is their favourite season and when they were married all those years ago. We had an amazing day at the edge of the Blue Mountains with clear skies and sunny weather, not too cold at all. Weather like this makes me so happy to be back home in Australia, we have the most amazing winters. It's beautiful to see how my lovely families interact with each other and to capture it on film for them, I just love it. These photos were a mixture of Canon digital and my Mamiya 645 using Fuji film and processed at Richard Photo Lab. I was so happy with the film processed here I have started to use it more and more in these family shoots. I have some fabulous families booked in for Spring photo sessions in Sydney so looking forward to showing you these soon!

I have a terrible habit of not seeing the wonders that are right in front of me and instead seeking out far flung adventures, when brilliant things lie at home. One rainy Saturday we ventured to the Art Gallery of NSW to view this years Archibald Prize finalists. We hadn't been in many years and were in for a treat. After visiting so many famous galleries around the world, we were amazed to see such a high standard of art on display and loved the friendly and peaceful vibe of the gallery. I think I've found my new Sydney serenity retreat!
A week before we were due to leave London, we realised we still hadn't been on the London Eye. So after a day of playing tourist, we watched the sun go down over our beloved second home and recounted adventures we'd had in the different boroughs of London stretched out along the Thames. Winter was sneaking up, the trees were changing colour and there was a new chill in the air.
It was time to go.
