I've been a photographer's assistant for quite sometime, actually, since I was big enough to hold a professional sized camera I've been following my Dad around with one! I've also helped out Sammi, who is a gorgeous person and photographer behind some of the most lovely wedding photography in Perth, Western Australia.
This past January, I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding. Solo. Yep, all by my lonesome. No Dad, no Sammi. Just me. My camera. A backup camera (thanks work!) a few lenses... and a gorgeous couple, surrounded by their closest family and friends in a candleit lit backyard of the suburbs of Perth...
Recently though, we've moved house.We're currently giving a bit of a make over.... a lick of paint, oh and a WHOLE new kitchen! Eeek! I can't wait till it's done! So far it's been 4weeks without a kitchen - no stove, no sink, no kitchenaid *sniff*. (It's also been quite some time without proper internet - it's doing my head in, but we won't get started on that particular fiasco...)
In the meantime, we've bought ourselves a campstove ($29 for the stove + $8 for 4 butane canisters from the local chinese grocers = happy us), our wine has arrived (wee haa!) and we are happily cooking ourselves some hot meals - pasta, warm beef, been and olive salads and don't forget those sunday mornings with crispy bacon and scrambled eggs and hot coffee. Oh I do love a good hot coffee on the weekends!
