Australia Part 3 - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

Once the wedding wrapped up some very hung over people made the long drive back to Melbourne. It wasn't that long it just felt like it. We had a day of recovery then spent a few days of being a tourist before I headed up to Sydney for the last party of my trip. One of my favorite parts of my last trip to Melbourne were the beach huts. I just loved all the color used on them right next to the beautiful beaches. I could have spent hours there but didn't want to torture the newly married couple. I also wish I had more time to spend downtown with its gorgeous mix and old and new architecture. Enjoy!

Australia Part 2 - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

I'm a little bummed. Close to three weeks ago I hurt my knee while shooting and have been on crutches ever since.  Being injured is very new to me and makes it impossible for me to shoot. Its slowly getting better but I'm still waiting to see a specialist. It also makes it very hard to blog with no new shoots or the fact that I couldn't sit at my desk because I couldn't bend me knee. Then I remembered I haven't posted all my Australia trip. Woo hoo.

You can see the first part here Australia Part 1 

After a few days in Melbourne we headed down to Mt Hotham with two cars crammed full of wedding supplies. I was the co-pilot with the groom on our quick five hour drive to Village Plain located at the base of Mt Hotham.  We arrived pretty late at the cozy Rundells Lodge but we could see right away the snow we had hoped for was no longer around. We spent the next day scouting locations and enjoying the down time before everyone arrived the next day. I normally don't attend rehearsal dinners so it was great for me getting to know everyone which is something I don't have time for when the day arrives.

Maternity Portraits Langley BC - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

Just before Christmas I headed out to Langley to do a last minute shoot with the beautiful family below. They were a pleasure to spend a few hours with them in their home getting to know them and catch up on life with our common friends. Stay tuned for the new arrival next month.

Island Bound - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

Every year my husband and I rotate who we spend Christmas with so headed to Vancouver Island to do early Christmas with his family. We have a 18 year old diabetic cat so she travels with us when we leave town. On these trips we always stay in the car with her so to pass time I take out the camera and wander around the car deck.  The light was just perfect.
