a tale of two hearts

sweet little madden

Cat, Russ you two are an incredible team. It is such a joy and encouragement watching you two love, cherish and adore her. She is such a sweet, sweet little thing, so happy for you three.


easter egg hunt

When you become a parent every emotion you ever knew is intensified. I know, I know it's super cliche and that everyone says it but maybe that's cause it's true! 

You thought you knew fear, but then you had your first trip to the emergency department with your newborn and you realise that this thing you're feeling doesn't even resemble the emotion you once called fear. You thought you knew joy but hearing your child laugh for the first time makes you feel like you're seeing colours in the world you'd never seen before. You thought you knew love but alas, a bunch of flowers and dinner can't compare to the new depths of love you've dived, your love is inherently costly, self giving and sacrificial when you're up for the 6th time that night to comfort your sick child...for the 3rd night in a row!!

No wonder easter and all it stands for carries a lot more depth and weight for me these days.

Happy Easter y'all!!

Oh and on a side note how A-MAZING is K-mart, all the decoration, bags, little signs and banners are all from K-mart. This was going to be a playdate in the park and it turned into a little more when I stumbled across all that stuff at K-mart. That place is so dangerously addictive, love how it can transform a "hey who's free over easter for a playdate at the park" into a "let's do an easter egg hunt in the woods for the kids!". Oh K-mart, I love you, in the I'll buy you flowers and take you out to dinner kinda love, not in the I'm going to get up 6 times a night to comfort you when you're sick kinda love.

thank you Dad

This moment: He was sitting next to J and then quickly announced "sit Dedo" jumped off his chair and ran over to you and sat on your lap and that said it all.

Dad, thank you so much for the way you delight, care for and look out for him. You are so attentive, so thoughtful, so selfless and generous in the way you love him. Every time I see you with him my heart explodes, for two reasons. Firstly, because you treasure my son and right now there is nothing that makes me feel more loved then seeing our boy being loved, delighted in and treasured. And secondly, watching you love him the way you do wakes me up to the fact that you loved me, delighted in me and treasured me much the same way when I was his age and that fact there makes me now as an adult realise just how blessed I have been to have you as my Dad.

Thank you Tato.

Max and Suzy's wedding

Max, Suzy, thank you so much for entrusting us with the honour of documenting your wedding day.
It was an absolute dream. 

The day was absolutely breathtaking, every little detail was a testament to the remarkable team you two are and to the generosity in both love and deed of your nearest and dearest. 


{ps: if you two ever want to renew your wedding vows...we're so in!}
