Salvatore’s Wedding Chicago

Finally, we’ve made it home! And this time I have a husband in hand :) Somehow we actually made it on the same flight back – as I’m flying standby this year I’m thinking that may be the only time that happens. We had an such amazing time in Siesta Key (more pics to come!)

The day before I left, I had the pleasure of shooting with the wonderful Emilia Jane! I don’t think Jen stopped smiling the entire day, it was so contagious! A simply gorgeous wedding full to the brim with so much love :) Enjoy!

Thank you to the amazing Emilia Jane for having me along to second shoot for the day!! :)


There was an expanse of reasons why it was impractical, uneconomical and totally unorganized to fly down to Florida and meet Billy while he was travelling for work…but then yesterday happens. And all the small worries, the day to day inconveniences get thrown straight back into perspective. My heart goes out to all those affected by Boston, it’s truly horrific. There are literally no words – I am just sick to my stomach.

But for right now, there’s nowhere else in this world I would rather be – hug your loved one a little tighter tonight and don’t take any day for granted x

Wedding Art Book: Kelly + Sean

First of all – how is it Friday already?? It totally snuck up this week! But how amazing is this weather? Kaya and I were able to go on a little run this morning :) It brought home how terribly unfit I have become over my lazy winter! Kaya kept looking up at me as if to say “hurry up Mum, I’m bored!”. Time to address this issue and get back outside with the pup and thankfully this 50degree weather makes it much easier!

Now, time to finally post some images of Kelly and Seans art book! I get so SO excited to knock on the door and hand it over, but at the same time a little sad. It’s never the end of the road but once they receive the book, gone are our emails on a regular basis and excitement about it arriving. I almost don’t want it to end – it’s safe to say these books hold a piece of my heart.

I’m so happy they loved their book :) It is such a timeless piece that will last forever as the perfect memory of their special day …2013-03-29_001

Now it’s time to check off some things on my everlasting todo list :) And have also given into Billy and will go car shopping with him – this must give me huge wife points! Wish me luck!

Happy Friday xx
