In my spare time I like to travel with good friends to discover the surrounding countryside, find good food and wine, talk about zombies and get away from the day to day grind. We are unbelievably lucky here in the Canberra regionbecause we have 40+ wineries with-in easy driving distance.
We recently stumbled across Barton Estate on one such day-trip. Boy were we glad we did! Not only did we discover some awesome wine to add to our summer sipping collection, but some pretty fantastic reds to cellar for a few years (aka our spare room cupboard). We did hear a great story for creating a home-made cellar involving a septic tank! Among the other highlights was hearing the story behind some of the wine names and meeting Marty the dog! Here he is graciously posing between the barrels for me.
If you ever find yourself with a gorgeous sunny day and needing to have an adventure- head out to the wineries with some friends and try out our cool climate wines. There’s plenty of delish food try and I stocked up on heaps gifts to use as stocking fillers.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Where we went
Sometimes I hang out of the window of the car and shoot a few frames off as the scenery whizzes by.
My latest “From the Window” comes from Sydney.
There’s more photos here on my personal blog.

It was funny and cute! You can see the full post here on my personal blog
Last week I was one of the lucky ladies who got to attend the first ever Canberra breakfast for the LEAGUE of extraordinary women. It’s the start of something new and exciting for women in business in Canberra. Each month there is a breakfast held where you can meet with like-minded people, chat, network, and be inspired.
Are you a women in business, entrepreneur? Do you want to network with like-minded people? Then have a peek at what the LEAGUE of extraordinary women have to offer.
They have motivational speakers who will share their journey with you, give advice and share information. This week, we were privileged to breakfast with Amanda Whitley the Editor and Creator of HerCanberra. It’s a must for anyone who wants to suss out all there is to Canberra -style, fashion, food, what’s on, what’s up and what’s down in our super-duper Capital city. Cruise over here to see what I am on about…www.hercanberra.com.au.

I big shout out to Deanne Brennan the founder of Thinkoutloud for the Grand Entrance of the LEAGUE of extraordinary women here in Canberra. Deanne has recently come back to Canberra with her Health and Wellness Coaching business. Check it out here. I can say first-hand what a great starting point her workshops are for anyone looking for support in setting goals to achieve all that is good in life (home, relationships, career, business, health…). If you want to better articulate your vision, plan for overcoming those obstacles that get in the way, be inspired and set a clear action plan in place to achieve all that you can- check out what options she has available.
Whew…I am not usually a big blog writer, preferring say things with images. So here’s a few for you.
Stay safe and have a wonderful week folks.
It feels like forever since I last whipped out my camera and did a 10 on 10 day!!!
For those in the know and for those who are not- I have been recovering from a bit of an operation. I am still healing and require the services of a walking Stick. However, this day found me equipped with a super duper driver (my mum) and a short trip out to the local coffee shop. After that a friend popped over for lunch. After that- I needed a nana nap!

Aug 10 on 10 2012 – My first 10 on 10 post!
Remember these guys? The kite flying family?
If you want to see more of this aeronautical themed session, check out the slideshow
When another Photographer asks you to photograph their family, you go through a few swift fleeting thoughts.
“Wow – how cool another photographer wants me to shoot their family photography session”
“OMG – another photographer wants me to shoot their family session- what if I stuff up?”
Now what happens when both of the parents are photographers? Times the nerves by two!
Once the silly insecurities faded I was privileged that the lovely Cath and Andy from Two Collins Photography trusted me to capture their delightful little gang of up and coming photographers and the cute puppy dog Devon. Even if Devon insisted on photo bombing me.
This is the second Photographers Family I have had in front of my lens. The nerves never get easier.
My path in life has taken a few twists and turns this year. Its been a tough journey for my partner and I, but even on the darkest of days I always had moments of brightness that would put a spark in my soul. These sparks included friends, family and a special collective of women I have had the absolute privilege of crossing paths with. They are the “Shh Nobody’s Watching” ladies.
A collective of women photographers documenting the seemingly unseen realities of being human.
The rules: Only one. Shoot it exactly as you see it. No interaction, no direction, no props
