It is the end of another year. Time for a bit of reflection….
In my early 20’s I travelled and worked. I realised I was highly driven to be successful, to me this meant to be happy. I figured that you spend so much time at work you need to be happy doing what you love. I spent my 20’s travelling and searching for happiness, it worked, I had some great jobs and meet some great people.
I got together with my husband in my late twenties we had our first child when I was 30. I always thought I would love to be a stay at home mum and I do, I love having the flexibility of working a full time job on my own schedule. I am not conventional. I have realised that I need to work and I also need to have a creative outlet. Photography has always been in my life always but it wasn’t until I had children that I started my business. I have heard other mums say that they needed to find who they are after having kids, for me I saw it as an opportunity to create who I wanted to be. This is something I have realised, life isn’t about finding yourself it is about creating yourself, only we are in control of where we want to be. I have worked very hard over the past 3 years to build my business, I have meet wonderful life long friends through my work and approach. 2013 has been my best year yet, I am SO excited about 2014, I feel like now is my time. These are my favourite 2013 wedding and in love photos. I will be doing a separate personal and family one over the next couple of weeks. Have the most wonderful Christmas and make 2014 the year you create the life you want.
