I practically grew up on the beach. Our house was less than a two minute walk to the water’s edge and we would wander down to the beach like it was our backyard. So when Kirsty and Brendan told me about their family’s boat shed at beautiful Blairgowrie, and their wish to have photographs taken at the place that they feel so connected to, I knew just what they meant.
I’m so excited for more warm summer nights like this one spent with the cutest family a couple of weeks back. The beach can often be a difficult location to work with, but it’s one of my favourites.

Your Dad looks up as you do and sees you for the first time, his little girl, looking so beautiful it brings a tear to his eye. You rush over to give him a hug and as you do, you glance over to make sure that your photographer has got…
From the moment you drive up the tree lined driveway of Villa Floretti, you know that you’re being transported. I seriously could have been somewhere in Europe last weekend for their bouquet making workshop held by the uber-talented and all-round lovely gal Lauren from Poppy Culture, Mornington Peninsula wedding and event florist and stylist.
The wedding is the backdrop, it’s the people that make the story. Rebecca and Ranga currently live in San Francisco and with their family and friends in Melbourne, they had the task of organising their wedding day long distance.
