Every few months I feel myself going a bit crazy. I think, geeez, what’s happening with me, a few months ago I was super motivated and in a good head space, but now. Meh. The world seems to be buzzing in and around my head, I’m unable to relax. I’m grouchy, irritable, not present, want… Continue reading Social Media Noise and Addictions.
Isn’t it odd when your child hits a new moment of clarity? I know that sounds weird, but like the next stage of maturity or another stage of life.
Over these school holiday - which did drive us all a bit mental - I've been thinking about how I photograph.

It is such an… Continue reading Another trip to the Wellington Zoo and photographing your children
Somedays, time never seems to more forward. Days and days of tantrums, neverending laundry, endless dishes after a dinners barely anyone eats. The constant cycle of repetitive daily life.
